it is authentically collected and a Jewish man once came to aroma rhodiola one what the time was the Hadith of the Muslims and he said to him Omar indeed there is a verse in your book in the Koran that were had to have been revealed to us the Jewish community, we would have taken that day as a day of read as a day of celebration. or more of the Allah Juan said to him, which was a you refer him to. He said that I'm referring to the verse in which Alonzo just says Elio MathML to lacantina was meant to are the community what are the two the common Islam Medina today I have completed your religion for you and completed my favor upon you have chosen as your way of life Islam, or more of your loved

00:02:10--> 00:02:51

one said that I was present at the time in which that verse was revealed to our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it was revealed in the farewell Hajj on the day of alpha, which also happened to be a day of fighting. That is the magnanimous day within our religion. It is the day that we all should celebrate and we do celebrate on the day of our alpha, because it is the day that I will religion was complete. Allah subhanaw taala is telling us that me and human all of those are the people around us. There is no need for us to add to this religion, no need to detract or subtract from it, no need to change any element of it. Because a large xojo by the very verse of the iron has

00:02:51--> 00:03:34

said that it is perfect and complete. Me and you all of us. It is something that we should be proud of, that a large surgeon has perfected for us our religion. There is no need for us to do anything with Islam. That is part of our belief. It is a core principle of our religion, that Islam is complete. And so the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam understood that after all of those years of fighting, and all of those years of oppression and injustice, one of those years of sacrifice and patience, a lot of xojo, after those near on 23 years of prophethood had completed Islam. The Quran was coming to its end, the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was

00:03:34--> 00:03:53

coming to its conclusion that religion is the adverse is a cornerstone of our religion. But just as it is a cornerstone of our religion, it is also within it a warning against a very real threat that we face today. And that threat is the threat of innovation of,

00:03:54--> 00:04:35

of people integrated into this religion, people for whichever and whatever reason not being happy with the way that Islam is wanting to change something, add something, subtract something, because to them, it doesn't seem that it's enough what we have. And the danger of Buddha is a grave and far greater danger than the danger of sins and even major sins. You see, because when someone sends within our community, that person who's sending in the people who may observe that sin, know that it's a sin. If someone's drinking alcohol, that person is a Muslim knows that it's not from Islam, that they're doing wrong, and the people who may witness and observe him doing so also know that

00:04:35--> 00:05:00

it's wrong. person who steals the person who lies the person who who kills and murders Do you know that from an Islamic point of view, these are haram their major sins, major acts that they're going to be punished for if they don't make Toba and the people around them, we know that they're also doing wrong. So there's always that element within our hearts and within the hearts of those people. That I'm doing it

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

Given that I'm sitting there, I'm disobeying Allah subhanho wa Taala. But that danger that inner compass doesn't exist when it comes to benign innovations. Because the whole premise of an innovation is that someone adds something to Islam under the guise of worship,

00:05:17--> 00:05:53

the under the guise that it is part and parcel of Islam, under the cloak of the being a part of our religion. That's how it works. So those people who are innovating in the religion are doing something that is foreign and alien to our practices, you don't find a basis in the Koran, you don't find a basis in the Sunnah of our profits on a low hourly and we'll sell them, you don't find the companions of the major scholars of Islam, ever having performed those actions. But those people who then go and perform those actions, they don't think that they're doing something wrong. And the people around them don't think that they're doing something wrong. In fact, it's the very opposite.

00:05:53--> 00:06:30

They think that they're coming closer to Allah. They think that they worshipping Allah azza wa jal, they think that actually what they're doing is something which is good that they're going to be rewarded for. So their conscience never says to them, you're doing wrong, be careful, maybe you will die one day, something will happen. And the people around them, don't say to them Hold on. What you're doing is wrong. It's the opposite. People cheer them, people praise them. People become excited when they see what they consider to be those acts of worship. And that's why the scholars of Islam had such a very staunch position against the whole concept of Buddha. The whole concept of

00:06:30--> 00:07:08

innovations, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hospital hajer when we translate as the sermon of need, that I that I began with this foot, but to Juma every Friday, we can week out, when the foot stands on this men button members up and down the country and across the world. They begin with the sermon the hook back to something which you've heard so many times repeated so many times, and it's called a sermon of need, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would begin his sermons with it as and when needed, he would use it in the nikka he would use it in the Juma he would use it at other times and places. And it comprises of a number of principles that we need to

00:07:08--> 00:07:53

be reminded of every time before you get married. On a Friday, whatever the occasion may be, these are principles that as Muslims, we need to be reminded of this sermon, he concludes with a warning, which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, Sharon moody said to her, and the worst of all affects all of our affairs in Islam, the worst of them are the newly invented matters, the proper synonym for so he prophesized, he knew that our time would come when people would try to add into this religion. We'll call them deserting be done. And every single new in new action of worship that's born into this religion, you practice, new belief, new ideology, it is an innovation, we'll

00:07:53--> 00:08:31

call it a bit of action Balala. And every single innovation is a path to misguidance we'll call Allah Allah, for now, unknown misguidance leads to the file. That's how he would conclude his sermon that he would read each and every single week, it ends with a warning. If you're getting married, beware, there are innovative practices within marriage. On the day of Joomla people come with crazy ideas and they do certain things. If you're going to get this agenda, be careful people within I will feel more rights and other things that are not from this religion, in our practices in our prayers in the way that we make Hajj, and so many things that have been innovations that over the

00:08:31--> 00:09:11

centuries and generations have creeped in slowly within Islam. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to warn us about them in the famous Hadith and heard about the Saudi Arabian law when he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam led us one day in prayer. And then after pray, he turned around and he gave us a sermon that was so eloquent and so moving, that our hearts began to tremble, and our eyes began to shed tears. So we said to messenger of Allah, it says, if this is a farewell sermon, it says, if you're preparing for your death, it's a farewell sermon, your parting words for all Sienna, so give us some advice, some parting advice. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:09:11--> 00:09:58

sallam said to them who Seacombe toquilla was somebody what are when Tamara Kumar for in Houma, Yasmin confessor, karate laughing kathira fairly can be some nutty was Sonata Nicola Rashid in Alma de Temasek. Ooh, Bihar. wildblue. Ali had been a virgin what Yakumo. More for in Nicola Bala. He said that I advise you with having the piety of Allah, Fear Allah be conscious of a larger agenda. And here on a bay, your Muslim rulers, even if he happens to be asleep, that has the position over you, For whosoever from amongst you has longevity lives a long life, you will see much different justice today we see much different every single mustard has a different practice. Every Imam seems

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

to have a different practice.

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

person on YouTube and Facebook is calling to something new that we didn't even hear of a few months ago, let alone generations and centuries ago. Whoever lives from amongst you will see a great amount of different. So what do you do? Hold on to my son. That's what it means when Allah says that he completed the religion. That sadhana is perfect, tells you what you need to do. And if you need further explanation, then hold on to the suit of my full alpha, Abubakar Amara semana de rhodiola Ganga mucha Marin, hold on to their practices, what they told you to do, hold on to it and grip it with your molar teeth, and be aware of the newly invented matters for every single innovation is a

00:10:40--> 00:11:18

misguidance. This is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was telling his community, he's addressing the likes of Abu Bakar and Omar and his great illustrious companions are on the long run, which many of something that they some of them towards the end of the era of companion, what they would see amongst them within their times as well. The prevalence of Buddha, and it is a danger, because we don't know when it becomes so entrenched within our community. What is that isn't part of our religion. Where does that line and that distinction go between sun and beta? Because there are two polar opposites. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the hadith of Arusha, rhodiola and

00:11:18--> 00:11:58

her monada Sufi, emelina hazama Lisa minha rod, Whosoever brings into this religion something which is foreign and alien to it, then they will have it rejected. The scholars of Islam when they make commentary of this howdy they say that it is one of the principles of Islam that encapsulates so much of our religion, part of our duty as Muslims is to follow the Quran and the Sunnah. What was good enough for our Prophet sallallahu aleyhi will sell them what was good enough for the likes of Abu Bakr, Omar Osman Ali and all of those illustrious companions. What was good enough for your memorable Hanif and Malika Shafi and Hackman, and all of those 1000s of scholars who live, it is

00:11:58--> 00:12:35

good enough for me and you, our role as Muslims isn't to have a logical explanation of everything in the Quran and Sunnah. It's not to bring it down so that I am me and my children, your children, everyone else can understand it. And if it doesn't make sense, then now we have to add or subtract to change, or do something to make ourselves or our society comfortable with our teachings. That's not our role. Our role is to take what Allah gave to us, where our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave to us, the fact that the original is complete means what it means that that is the path of salvation, just as it was the salvation for the companions is the salvation for me and you, for

00:12:35--> 00:13:13

my family and for your family. And that's why the issue of bedarra is so dangerous. And it's something which we see around us so much, but it's not something which most of us are attuned to, because it's become embedded within our society. Now for people to stand up and say, actually, that's a wrong practice, because they become so entrenched within parts of the community. People think this guy doesn't know what he's on about doesn't have any religion doesn't understand Islam can't possibly have any understanding of the Quran and Sunnah even though they are the ones who have bought Indian practices into Islam. And that is why the scholars of Islam used to warn against this

00:13:13--> 00:13:24

has certainly been Alia Rahim Allah tala, one of the famous scholars of the self used to see the no one brings into this religion and innovation, except that as a result of it, they kill off

00:13:25--> 00:14:04

their polar opposites. If you're going to integrate something into this religion is taking the place and the station of a Sunnah that our Prophet left was Salalah while he was seldom suited is deciding on one or the other, they do not coexist at the same time. And in the same place, you either do it this way, or you do it that way. And as an EMA medical female laterna said, the famous squeaky lustrous Imam, he used to say that whosoever brings and innovates into this religion, then what they're essentially saying is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam didn't do his job honourably, Salah, he was treacherous with his message, he deceived us. He didn't do his job. He

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

didn't complete his mission mission, because he told us himself, son, Allah, while he was seldom, after this verse in the Quran that I recited that Islam is complete, that there is nothing good, except that I've told you about it, and nothing evil, except that I have warned you against it. And then we come and we say Actually, no, he didn't tell us all of it. He didn't warn us against all of it. He missed out A and B and C and D. And we go past the alphabet because there's so many of these practices. We're seeing essentially, that he didn't do his job, even in the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam if people came and tried to give under the guise of worship and Riba and

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

and this doesn't mean that those people sometimes don't want good. They don't just want to come closer to Allah. They don't have good intentions. But good intentions are not enough in Islam. They have to be coupled with understanding what Allah wants from us and following the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when those three companions came to

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

profits on the low while he was selling them. And one of them said, As for me, I'm going to fast every day and never miss a day of fasting. And the second one said, I'm going to stand every single night in prayer and never sleep. And the third one said, As for me, I will live a life of celibacy never become married. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam heard this and he said, these are people who want to do good. They want to come closer to Allah, they tried to worship Allah, then of people who are trying to do evil. He said to them, as for me, I fast and I take days off from fasting. And I pray and they spend part of the night asleep. And I marry from a neurotic bernsen

00:15:35--> 00:16:15

Nettie Felisa meanie. So whosoever rejects my Sunnah, thinks that something else is a better way than my Sunnah, then it's not from me, that is our religion. Our religion is balanced, and it's a religion of mercy. It deals not only with our spiritual needs, but our family needs, and our physical needs, and our communal needs. And that's why Islam is balanced. When we come and we mess with that balance, then that's when evil starts to creep in with our community, when people no longer know their religion, when people start going to extremes, because they no longer understand what it is that Islam wants from them. And that's what happens all the time. There are many reasons

00:16:15--> 00:16:54

why bidders and innovations become entrenched within our society and community. But I want to mention two or three of them. The first of them is that bid on innovation always comes from following our desires, when something makes us happier when we think that our intellect has more gravity and should have more of a focus than the text of the Quran and the Sunnah, when we give preference to our own emotions, over what the Quran and Sunnah tells us that we should feel and how we should behave and how we should act. That is when Buddha starts to creep into this religion. In the Hadith in Sahih Bukhari I'm sorry, the od rhodiola one, the Hadith or even in the time of the

00:16:54--> 00:17:17

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he could foresee and prophesized that this evil would become prevalent within our community. A man by the name of the Holy Spirit came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, at a time when the profits on sentiment finished a battle a campaign and he had the war booty and he was distributing that wealth amongst the people. This man by the name of the Holy Spirit, He said he came and he said Yasuda Allah

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

or messenger of Allah be just be fair, in the way that you give people their shares of this war booty. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, we have a woman near the needle American cryptocurrency to eterna mcconaughy vote to you, who can be just unfair, if I am unfair, I will have been lost and destroyed. If I am not fair, if I am unjust, who can possibly be fair? And just who can give everyone their shares and their rights? If I will profits on a low hourly or send them wouldn't do so. I'm one of the Allahu angles president and he heard this, and he said O Messenger of Allah, giving me permission to take off his neck. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said know

00:17:59--> 00:18:01

that our hope for inala who has happened

00:18:03--> 00:18:43

to consolata who Masada team was Yamaha. marassi me him. Yoko Ono coronella yuja was ohana Jerome yakun Amina Dune Amina Dini. komamura sam Amina ramier, he said, leave him alone, because from him and his followers will be those people who when you compare your prayers to them, you will be literally your own prayers. And when you compare your fasting to their fasting, you will be literal, you're fasting. When you compare your own arm to their Koran, you will be literally and he's not talking by the way to me and you. He's not talking to us. He's talking to the likes of Mr. de la when you Omar, you will build to your prayer, you're fasting, you're an in comparison to those

00:18:43--> 00:18:58

people, because that will be they have the signs of piety. Outwardly, they seem like they know what they're saying, I will be there to quote to you or and sooner they to have justifications, they too can copy and paste from the internet, they can do everything that you do.

00:18:59--> 00:19:35

Now your job is to Hana jump, under the recite doesn't go beyond their throats, meaning doesn't settle from their hearts. There's nothing there's no substance, there is some show and it's all surface, something which if you were to even start scratching the surface, there would be nothing left. They will leave this religion faster than the arrow that is shot from its bow. Nothing there. But when you look at them, you will see how amazing they are. When they've been above some of the lower and when they would leave to go to some of these people in the life of your loved one. The Companions themselves witnessed the beginning of this evil, he would go and he would see and he

00:19:35--> 00:19:59

would describe them and he would say that the marks of prostration on their foreheads were like the knees of camels. You know when you make prostration on the hard ground, not these carpets and rugs that we're fortunate to have put on the center on the ground on the pavement. He leaves a mark on your forehead. Their marks was so big because they did so much frustration. He described them like the needs of an animal. But those people were the same people who rebound and they killer as men of the law one

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

rebelled against God Allah one, I will certainly do narrates the Hadith of the Holy Son. He says that I lived to the time when I fought alongside God, a loved one in his army against those people that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam warned us about. And then you had other people in the time of the companions who came with similar ideas. For example, the idea of your loved one was infallible, that he came from a place where he couldn't do any wrong, couldn't do any sin, that he should have been the halifa instead of Abu Bakar, instead of Rama instead of man, rhodiola. Marine. And that even began once one bit starts the risk begin, because every single person has their own

00:20:37--> 00:21:13

ideas, their ideology, their own agenda that they want to push. And that's why the second reason why beta becomes prevalent, and the way that we ourselves should, should fortify ourselves to fight against this, this oppression and this evil. It is through a lack of knowledge. When people don't know their religion, when people can't differentiate anymore. When you go and you see Muslims doing a certain practice and even though it's foreign to you, you don't know whether it's right or wrong. And you don't know whether it's something that you should engage in or stay away from. And you're left in that situation where you're just seriously uncomfortable. Having a lack of knowledge is a

00:21:13--> 00:21:52

reason why people don't know the difference between what is the sinner, and it should be preserved and what is not a sinner and should be left. Even in the time of the companions of the love language, Marian, they will people who try to do stuff sometimes perhaps from the best of places and the best of intentions, but without knowledge, those seemingly good pure innocent actions, they develop into a rage and a pyre that is innovation in the time of the companions of Booz Allen rhodiola. When he when they came to have to live in Mr. Rue de la de la Juan Abdullahi mushroom, was a scholar from amongst the companions, one of the early Muslims, one of the Senior Major companions,

00:21:52--> 00:22:26

he came to him and he said, Oh, Abdullah, I saw a group of people in the masjid doing a practice that I've never seen before. But I couldn't outwardly see them doing wrong. meaning they're not they're dancing and singing in the masjid. They don't seem to be doing anything wrong. But it's something that I've never encountered before. He said, What did you see? He said that I saw them sitting in a circle. And the leader of the circle they each one of them is holding pebbles. And the leader will say praise Allah 100 times say Subhana, Allah 100 times see La ilaha illa Allah 100 times and then all of them begin to chant together and they begin to do that.

00:22:28--> 00:23:04

of dilemmas. So what did you say to him? Oh, boo Musa. He said, I didn't say anything to them. I thought that I would come and seek your opinion. So he got up abdomen was rude with a boo Musashi, rhodiola Juan Houma. And they went to the masjid. And they saw this, and I believe in Massoud said, what is it that you're doing? And they could tell that even Massoud is angry? They said what I'm doing now all we want you to do is please Allah. remember Allah make the call of Allah subhana wa Tada. So I'm delighted and Massoud said to them that you live in a time, but the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam are still many, the close of the profit center mode where the

00:23:04--> 00:23:41

utensils the vessels that he would eat from still exist. But I've seen you do a practice that is not from this religion. So either you have a way that is better than the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam or you've come with some evil and misguidance. They said, Oh, Abdullah, all we wanted to do was come closer to Allah. We only had good intentions. He said to them, and how many people who have good intentions, never achieve them. Just because you want to do good isn't enough in Islam. It's not enough just to have a sincere intention that sincere intention has to be coupled with following the path of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, those two are integral to one

00:23:41--> 00:24:19

another. The time of human medical human Allah tala man once came to him. Nima Malik lived in Medina. He said to me, my Malik were to the people of Medina assuming around from for Hajj and Umrah whether the way that he from from he said to him from the miracles of the halifa that's where the processor went, that's where you should go. He said, Brian want to go to the mosque of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam I want to go to his grave. And from there I will make my intention for Umrah and Hajj and then I will go the Prophet sallallaahu Lima medical him Allah, Allah said to him, if you do so then you've come up with a way that is alien to our religion. You come with something

00:24:19--> 00:24:52

that you claim is better than the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Surely if there was virtue in making a crown from the mosque of the prophets of Salaam, the prophet SAW Selim himself would have been the first one to do it. And that is what happens when there is a lack of knowledge and then it becomes embedded within the community because of the lack of knowledge till today, even today, if you were to go to the masjid of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam in Medina, during the Umrah and Hajj, you will see countless people from our brothers and sisters from across the world, who will go to the grave of the prophet will sell them on some corner of the

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

masjid and that's where they will make their intention from till today. They make their intention from it, even though this was something which all of the scholars

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

Shouldn't be done. But it's because of the lack of knowledge. And then the third reason from following those desires and from a lack of knowledge, it becomes the practice. It becomes the culture and the custom that we're familiar with. It becomes just part and parcel of what everyone's used to. And so now for someone to come and say, no, it's wrong. They're the ones who seem like they're weak. They're the ones who seem like they're weird. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to us, but Islam arriba arriba photo ballyhoura indeed, Islam began as something strange, and it will return a strange, so glad tidings to the strangers began a strange,

00:25:39--> 00:26:14

because when the professor send them began with a few companions, and started to practice Islam, the origin didn't know what he was doing was foreign and alien to them. That wasn't something that they were familiar with. And Islam will return that way. Because of the amount of, of evil practices and innovations and different things that are brought into Islam into that fold of Islam that are alien from it, people won't know the difference. So many examples, from weddings, from funerals, even from the way that we are in this mystery. People, especially, I mean, the way that people come to them a surgeon, and the way that people offer their prayers and so on, so many practices that aren't from

00:26:14--> 00:26:49

Islam from the other, every single part of Islam, there is some innovation that has crept in, that has now become normal. And it just continues and it continues. And because it's not based on the Quran, and Sunnah, because there's no firm, solid foundation, there's no principles, there's no etickets that have been mentioned. It just grows and grows and grows. So now when people celebrate, for example, the birthday of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they come in sizes has been doing for the past few years with Christmas, and you drive by the house, you don't know whether that's a Muslim house over there, it's a non Muslim, as you wouldn't know. Because you can't tell

00:26:49--> 00:27:23

the difference anymore. They have lights, they have lights, they have decoration, they have decorations, they post their possessions. In some countries, we have possessions in our country, during that time, you can't tell the difference. Even if for those people who say that maybe it's set out or there's some reason for it. It just grows and grows and grows to such an extent that now you can't tell the difference between the two, don't even know where to begin and where to end. And that's why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam before we even began during his time, before it was something that even the companions had to deal with. He was already warning us against it.

00:27:23--> 00:27:57

Because it's something that we need to be aware of something that we have to protect our religion from. Because we've seen that it's you know, that they're wrong with it as an innovations you don't know that they're wrong, and you take them as part and parcel of your religion, and that is more dangerous for us and for our families. We have a large soldier, that he protects us from innovation, that a large circle shows us the clear path of the center, and that a large social mix is steadfast upon it. And he seems us in our families from the traps of sheep barn, and from the ignorance of those around us barakallahu li walakum. Annual Suna one of our new yakushima female Minotaur hikma,

00:28:24--> 00:28:56

This topic of innovation with your brothers and sisters in Islam is an important topic. And it's something that you don't hear much about anymore. But it's something that we need to be constantly reminded of, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would constantly remind his companions of the very same thing. There are extremes in everything. There are some people and we have to understand that our religion is the balance. That gives you the fine balance between those extremes. There are people who don't understand the center. And they become so blinkered in their vision of the sooner that they don't understand that perhaps there are other ways of practicing, that seems

00:28:56--> 00:29:32

sooner, that is an extreme as well. But then there's another extreme of those people who just leave the sooner don't care for the sooner innovation to this religion and have been as winning this religion. I want to leave you with a final iteration of our profits on a low while he was selling them. That speaks to us about the gravity and the danger of this issue of innovation. And it's something that all of us should internalize and think about, because it speaks not only about the dangers and the gravity of the situation, but also in terms of the punishment and in terms of the issue of our salvation. In the hadith of salidroside society, or the Allahu one, the Prophet

00:29:32--> 00:29:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the photo to Kumara Murali yesharim woman Sherry Bella milma Abba, the prophet said, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I will be waiting for you meaning my my companions on the Day of Judgment. I will be waiting for you and my pond, Whosoever passes by my pond will drink from its water. And whosoever drinks from its water will never experienced test again. And that is under

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

On that day, people will experience extreme thirst and the only source of quenching that thirst is from this pond of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a single drink and you will never experience thirst again. The Prophet says lady Denali, a common rd for humare Fulani sama, you had to be nearby in a home for Punahou, in the home in me, and as I am there, upon my pond waiting by my pond, there will be a group of people who will come and I will know them and

00:30:41--> 00:31:19

they will know me, meaning what they're from the Muslims. They form Islam. I know them. I recognize them as my followers. They recognize me as being the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but then they will be prevented from reaching, the angels will come and drive them back. They'll be prevented from reaching me. So I will call out and I will say those are my people. They're from me, let them come. And the angels will say law tivity matter to bother. You don't know what they did to your religion after you died. You don't know what these people invented, what they innovated how they changed and twisted, added and subtracted from your religion. Because the prophet SAW Selim does not

00:31:19--> 00:31:29

know the unseen, doesn't know what took place after his death. They the angels will say to him, you don't know what they did to religion. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and since

00:31:31--> 00:32:10

Lehman Hyderabad body, we move them from me, distance them from me, those who change my religion after I passed, can you imagine being at that place coming towards the pond of the Prophet seldom seen him with that water that quenches thirst forever, and then, and then being driven away, and not only being driven away, but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam freed himself, absolving himself from those people, because of the way that he changed his religion. It is extremely important that when we take any practice in Islam, we know that it's actually part of Islam. That is something that we need to practice as Muslims, that it's something that has the basis in the Quran and the Sunnah.
