All praise to God.

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

And may God Peace and blessings young Islamic prophet Muhammad and all the prophets

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

who have been sent by God to mankind.

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

The purpose of today's presentation

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


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

going to be something of an understanding

00:00:31--> 00:00:35

of the allergy and culture. I know a number of you have been here for some time.

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

And I've not had any kind of opportunity to get

00:00:43--> 00:01:12

to any kind of sessions orientation sessions, which would give you some kind of a background as to the people and the culture. And what you know of it is basically, what you're getting from the basic day to day contract. That, what happens is that it's very easy for us to misunderstand the practices of people, if we don't understand what's behind those factors.

00:01:13--> 00:01:31

white person does this white person does that, if you don't really understand what is the rationale behind it, then we tend to judge this, according to our own cultural background. Now, I'm from Canada. And I've been over here for, you know, a number of years. And I know, when I first came over here,

00:01:33--> 00:02:02

I was somewhat perplexed at some of the cultural habits and practices of the people here. And it took me a while to get used to but because of the fact that I went into a course of study, I studied at the University here, graduate masters in Islamic studies from the university is on the kingdom. Yeah. And that gave me the kind of insight which enabled me to understand, you know, something of the industry and the people. And the, the,

00:02:03--> 00:02:16

in that way, it also enabled me to help others, you know, I have, I work with the Air Force headquarters in Riyadh. And I go from different dates in one day to another day,

00:02:17--> 00:02:26

at this point, in the 11th month, to help in the process of orientation of giving people a background,

00:02:27--> 00:02:33

or background, as to the culture of Arabia, the culture and practices of Libya.

00:02:34--> 00:02:38

And the purpose of this is really, to help

00:02:39--> 00:03:16

you all were here visiting the country working in the country, I better understand the people to make your dealings with them easier, because then you can understand why a person is doing what you're doing, then it's easier to get along with them visa to select certain things fly with Normally, you know, you would take us offensive, etc. And similarly, it's also a weigh in, or an opportunity for the people of this country, you know, for me to gain an understanding of the purpose, which a large degree in the West, you know, our Western oriented century had been,

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

you know, a lot of people come, I've gotten tough for many people, with

00:03:22--> 00:03:36

no end of understanding, you know, reprojection, about the culture and the people of this region. So, the purpose of that said, was to give you some insight, and to give you an opportunity also,

00:03:37--> 00:03:48

share with me, discuss with me, your own experiences, things that you know, don't add up for you things that you'd like to get clarity on, is what I'm here for.

00:03:49--> 00:03:56

And please don't feel shy about asking anything, you know, whatever. I have the information forgive you. If I don't have the

00:03:59--> 00:04:04

first day when we talked about religion, culture, it's important to understand our

00:04:06--> 00:04:19

job as symmetric people, fundamentally indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula, is the basic definition of who the Arabs are genetic people indigenous to the Arabian Peninsula.

00:04:21--> 00:04:23

So that the one doesn't,

00:04:25--> 00:04:30

that it is impossible for an alum to be an anti Semite.

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

He knew if somebody opposes is

00:04:37--> 00:04:56

usually branded in the West as an anti Semite. does you know he's against America deflecting is maintaining his position he branded, no matter what his background is dangerous anti Semite, but it is impossible to be an anti Semite because he is a filmmaker. So

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

that's the first one

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

To clarify.

00:05:02--> 00:05:03


00:05:04--> 00:05:07

today when we talk about our, it includes all people

00:05:09--> 00:05:11

who speak Arabic as their mother tongue.

00:05:14--> 00:05:15

And this includes,

00:05:19--> 00:05:25

and there are many in Egypt, in Palestine and Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, who are

00:05:30--> 00:05:31

lovely people

00:05:37--> 00:05:42

and listening together as one in the same thing. However, in fact, that is not

00:05:48--> 00:05:52

the definition of Arabic, it is only one group.

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

And that is

00:05:55--> 00:05:56

yours job

00:05:58--> 00:06:03

in Yemen, North Africa, in what is now known as Libya,

00:06:04--> 00:06:09

and in other parts of the Arab world, you find your mother tongue,

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


00:06:13--> 00:06:15

may have excluded themselves.

00:06:16--> 00:06:33

From the general category of ABS, this is not the who decided, listen, I'd include everybody, but you could do to themselves from that general category. And what you find is that many of the Arabic people

00:06:34--> 00:06:45

you now know, in Egypt, in Sudan, North Africa, Algeria, Libya cetera, these people did not originally speak as

00:06:46--> 00:06:47

their language.

00:06:48--> 00:07:19

They all had indigenous languages in the area, whether or not Africa, you know, classic languages in Egypt, and Sudan. However, many plants get to that region, the people, in order to be able to communicate with the administration of the area's began to set up some advocates, this is why we're here. You know, if you have to go into town, here with the people, to some degree, you're going to pick up onto the plan or something like

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

that, what happens inside those people's

00:07:25--> 00:07:31

lives increase into the languages until the languages evolved and sent over into Arabic.

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

Now, Arabia,

00:07:38--> 00:07:39

to the Arabian Peninsula,

00:07:40--> 00:07:42

according to the replacement as

00:07:45--> 00:08:06

the island of the era, this is the largest polluter in the world, approximately 1 million square miles. And just to put in your packet, for marking, it is about the same size as continental America, east of the Mississippi River has anything to do with the city either together or equivalent. In,

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


00:08:10--> 00:08:11

the Arabian Peninsula.

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

Arabia, we have to look

00:08:17--> 00:08:22

at the early history and early history generally divided into two sections.

00:08:24--> 00:08:25


00:08:27--> 00:08:38

planetary is referred to as the period of ganglia or the period of ignorance and the atomic scale system.

00:08:42--> 00:08:44

We found that the people that Arabia

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

there are two two main assets. Those are the South Yemen and there are going to an individual by the name of Dan,

00:08:57--> 00:09:02

in the Bible is referred to as Japan and the northern Arabian

00:09:04--> 00:09:08

I've learned and I've met him and his descendants

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

of over him to know

00:09:16--> 00:09:21

that I like the target in general. Again, when you look at who the

00:09:23--> 00:09:26

defendant is, what you find is that

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

they come from the same family

00:09:34--> 00:09:35

being the father of

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

either being the father of the blue

00:09:39--> 00:09:40


00:09:43--> 00:09:45

as important to the need

00:09:47--> 00:09:51

for human economic product.

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


00:09:54--> 00:09:56

product was in South Yemen

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

which is burned

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

The third day in pagan religious ritual, and it is used in cosmetics and embalming the dead will remain

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

and it was taken out into

00:10:12--> 00:10:13


00:10:14--> 00:10:24

enclosure and and this will be particularly significant economic significance in this area. And those of us who are from Christian background who

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

used to do some dead

00:10:28--> 00:10:29

sea life men who have been

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


00:10:34--> 00:10:36

them, it was coming from

00:10:42--> 00:10:44

the people on the labor

00:10:45--> 00:10:46


00:10:47--> 00:10:48

involve themselves in

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

simple issues with the last generation,

00:10:54--> 00:10:58

the temple of worship of the area was Mecca,

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

Mecca, and there was a section on in Arabic as the Kava Kava literally means.

00:11:09--> 00:11:21

And I'm sure you've been convicted, whether it's on television, or photographs, in magazines, or whatever. Let's go with that back to where people are no doubt in worship.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

Now, this

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

object is in fact, according to

00:11:31--> 00:11:33

a house of worship, the big house of worship

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

by Prophet Abraham, and he

00:11:37--> 00:11:38

left his

00:11:39--> 00:11:40


00:11:42--> 00:11:59

back then, what is now known as the Kaaba, being the first house of worship, and it was dedicated to the worship of one God, which was the god known in the traditions of Moses and the prophets of Israel. However, in time,

00:12:00--> 00:12:02

idolatry was introduced.

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

And we did the mega tides of Arabia, they all the items around the topic, so the topic became the center of idolatry in

00:12:16--> 00:12:21

worship provided the idea and the concept of the term along with one God,

00:12:23--> 00:12:35

it remained amongst the people, however, they worship God as intermediary when they do come with their own hands or whatever the rest of them as intermediary between themselves and the one God.

00:12:37--> 00:12:53

In Judaism, also existed in the Arabian Peninsula. In the area of Ludhiana, which is not too far from here, was a very large Christian community. And in the south in Yemen, was a very large community and

00:12:55--> 00:13:04

a family who was accepted, I converted to Judaism, and that whole area.

00:13:05--> 00:13:19

And in fact, though, the incident took place between the kingdom of Yemen and the Coopers and Lybrand, in that he attempted to effectively convert them to Judaism.

00:13:20--> 00:13:23

And a number of them will show

00:13:25--> 00:13:32

a firefight into the tradition of Nicholas Dugan and it was filled with fire and those people are getting

00:13:34--> 00:13:43

thrown into the ship. And this incident is reported in the plan which is known as the Book of Revelations is listed in follow in the

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

chapter versus a commemorative

00:13:49--> 00:13:50

guide for

00:13:51--> 00:14:09

the matters of the draft. Now, from 20 onwards, it comes to dealing with Mohammed, Mohammed will be upon him and a lot of the prophets were born in Mecca. And I've lived before he and he began to Revelation.

00:14:11--> 00:14:13

By the time of his death in

00:14:17--> 00:14:19

Arabia, Malaysia had become

00:14:21--> 00:14:25

accepted Islam. And what we have to understand is that

00:14:27--> 00:14:29

Mohammed, Mohammed would not

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

be a new religion,

00:14:33--> 00:14:35

a religion of Islam, if you

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


00:14:48--> 00:14:49

to call it immigrants,

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

lovely person

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

in terms of a particular religion or so, we add a

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


00:15:02--> 00:15:04

some Christianity that could

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

set the plebeians or something like that, however, in Arabic

00:15:16--> 00:15:17

that relationship

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

you had some of the

00:15:24--> 00:15:27

older one is it something to look at another point

00:15:31--> 00:15:34

you have is called a redacted

00:15:41--> 00:15:44

on the web interface, one was related to this particular act of

00:15:48--> 00:15:54

blogging submission to the will of God wants to submit to the world. And because of this

00:15:56--> 00:15:57

particular particular

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

thing called Mohammedan.

00:16:01--> 00:16:07

Time, the number of seconds all detected in 25 years ago, Mohammed is sending me

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

Donovan, somehow,

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

Mohammed, Mohammed have some kind of as a separate individual separate,

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

to separate so unless you're

00:16:21--> 00:16:24

the Messenger of God, and God's message was the message

00:16:26--> 00:16:33

that you get, and similarly, Mohammed religion is not acceptable. It is Islam and different

00:16:36--> 00:16:46

religions differently the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is named after King Abdullah Jean, as vowed to establish the kingdom in 1932.

00:16:49--> 00:17:00

Standing in the tower became known as Saudi Arabia. The flags that you see the green flag has certain squiggly white lines on it.

00:17:01--> 00:17:06

In fact, is Arabic calligraphy, accepting the declaration of faith of Islam?

00:17:08--> 00:17:15

100 means there is no god that among one God, and Mohammed is a messenger of Allah.

00:17:19--> 00:17:23

I don't want to see the thread you think the thread is that what the software does? Is it right?

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


00:17:28--> 00:17:35

dealing with that if the price of it all prepared represents default, which must be behind the face would have to be

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

become established as a test in a land

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

would support the face, which also is the point of destiny. So

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

if God is projected disappeared, Paul, do

00:17:51--> 00:18:01

you realize that all the neighboring countries are what they call have nations, whether it's to the north of Europe and to the east of the countries of Germany,

00:18:03--> 00:18:07

man and to the west, across the waters from Sudan, Egypt cetera.

00:18:11--> 00:18:21

ethically, the country is usually divided up into five major regions. The eastern coastline is called the gods in this area called appeal for connected

00:18:23--> 00:18:29

the chain of mountains upon mountains, and the gods itself knew a burden.

00:18:31--> 00:18:34

The mountain forming natural border between East

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

and the rest of Arabia.

00:18:42--> 00:18:45

The capital of Arabia is

00:18:49--> 00:18:49


00:18:52--> 00:18:54

to lead if you have any cars to drive.

00:18:56--> 00:18:59

We thought we would want to give up the weather here for

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


00:19:01--> 00:19:03

If you ever get there,

00:19:04--> 00:19:11

you find that not a very embankment to get up there and the whole of Riyadh is on a patrol, which is referred to as

00:19:12--> 00:19:15

the eastern region for the month

00:19:16--> 00:19:23

is the fourth of all of the festival, the northern region of Somalia.

00:19:25--> 00:19:29

You find most of the Nomad people who still live on the desert without any separate home

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


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


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


00:19:37--> 00:19:37

can be

00:19:39--> 00:19:39


00:19:46--> 00:19:48

a number of foreign deposits

00:19:49--> 00:19:55

as the largest concentration of fans of any business in the world and the fact you have

00:19:56--> 00:19:58

over 1000 people

00:20:02--> 00:20:03

Within the period

00:20:04--> 00:20:13

of visit with Warren as a sip of desert with regard to the terms of the modern history of Arabia, Saudi Arabia,

00:20:16--> 00:20:18

in the seventh century, and

00:20:19--> 00:20:22

Arabia, across North Africa, down into the Sudan,

00:20:25--> 00:20:26

into southern France,

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

Southern Italy,

00:20:30--> 00:20:36

Lebanon, what is known as Asia Minor, now Turkey, and across into southern Russia and China,

00:20:37--> 00:20:38

you find

00:20:39--> 00:20:42

the Muslim world,

00:20:45--> 00:21:18

john Medina, within that area, that is the Mecca and Medina Mecca being the place where the topic is one that in the person calling, he builds his leverage, he was driven out from there and move to the city of Medina, where he established and Muslim said and from there, and over the left of Arabia is also very good. This city is the center or capital of the Atlantic staple Empire in the early stages, following that, to the master,

00:21:19--> 00:21:25

then on to Baghdad, in Iraq, and you find that it looks an empire with that all the way over,

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

decided to

00:21:37--> 00:21:38


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

on the

00:21:57--> 00:22:01

a lot of distortions in the practice of religion, that is the path people

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

slip on,

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

is now in the area, where

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

the governor was here the

00:22:33--> 00:22:34


00:22:37--> 00:22:39

good idea, you know, they

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

gain control over Arabia, and

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


00:22:51--> 00:22:53

establishment of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to place

00:22:55--> 00:23:02

an earlier period in the 19th century, establish the rule of law and the actors the family have, they had to leave

00:23:05--> 00:23:06

to come back Canada

00:23:07--> 00:23:08


00:23:11--> 00:23:14

been back in superior in some way at the left of Arabia.

00:23:20--> 00:23:22

valleys in a sense, the evidence

00:23:25--> 00:23:36

presented to the house was given to them by the family. So naturally, when the family was in need, in a time of difficulty, they shattered the quality

00:23:39--> 00:23:42

until the period of invasion,

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


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


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


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


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

religion of Islam formed the foundation which influences how people

00:24:29--> 00:24:30

you know,

00:24:31--> 00:24:33

how to do people etc.

00:24:34--> 00:24:45

And this is due to the fact that when granting, it did not erase all of the practices and the people that were here that it did, the practices of the good practices

00:24:47--> 00:24:48

reflect it.

00:24:49--> 00:24:55

Modify modifies a certain degree of incentives, random or incorrect practices which are harmful

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

or modified in such a way as they would become beneficial.

00:25:01--> 00:25:23

To give you some example, here are generally noted for the hospitality and generosity, the general image of the people here in the sense that you will find people with a knife into their hands, you know, they'll feed you rago. You know, this is a general attitude, in terms of how to deal with people, this is something which are from time to time

00:25:25--> 00:25:43

for their generosity, and this is a product of the desert Nomad life, their generosity and hospitality had a great compassion for those living in the desert. You know, how come to visit other people, it became very impressive, to show generosity to look after those who were living this type of lifestyle.

00:25:46--> 00:25:47

What has happened is that

00:25:48--> 00:25:50

this generosity, or hospitality,

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


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

the personal side,

00:25:55--> 00:26:12

compete with each other in generosity and hospitality, and also personal pride for their side or their family or whatever. Whatever happened when planting doesn't remove the issue of fight or flight and made it an act of worship was adopted.

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

was quoted as saying that

00:26:17--> 00:26:18

one would

00:26:19--> 00:26:26

suggest is that honorably with generosity is not a true follower of Islam.

00:26:27--> 00:26:32

So, the act of generosity now became an a religion.

00:26:36--> 00:26:42

That many, many different forms of life among them were polygamy, unscripted, polygamy, and

00:26:46--> 00:26:47

when the time came,

00:26:49--> 00:26:58

we're just allowed them for a nice weekend tonight, just in a period of time, we're gonna get mad for one day, one week, one month, one year

00:27:01--> 00:27:02


00:27:05--> 00:27:07

the polygamy was

00:27:09--> 00:27:17

so rare people generally tend to identify polygamy with Islam as looked into the people have many lives. In fact, it's

00:27:18--> 00:27:23

modified and deficient, which was not common to the Arabs.

00:27:26--> 00:27:40

polygamy was in practice, in the vast majority of places. And what it did was it limited the polygamy a man be able to marry a maximum of four wives at one time

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

that they really could have

00:27:45--> 00:27:47

as many husbands demand to have as many wives.

00:27:50--> 00:27:54

That is a man having a number one maximum being

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

the number of wives or pocket

00:28:02--> 00:28:03

up all the data

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

considered to be

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


00:28:28--> 00:28:29

prohibited animal.

00:28:31--> 00:28:39

If you want to see a pig, maybe some of you have been away from America, Philippines for longtime young to the Philippines again, you can

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

take the

00:28:43--> 00:28:44

time to help them.

00:28:47--> 00:28:49

However, it's not just

00:28:50--> 00:28:52

because there's not an economic

00:28:53--> 00:28:54


00:28:58--> 00:29:01

in the face of death, you find women and

00:29:02--> 00:29:11

men, generally speaking a new color. And this is in keeping with the accounting principles of modesty.

00:29:15--> 00:29:16

Along with this, just

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


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

the man in the desert needed something to cover his head to keep the sun off his head. Otherwise you get

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

the color.

00:29:41--> 00:29:56

Defining the road you're going to use black and white or white or red and you find the use black and white. Using just like lemonade the multiplicity of colors. You know, this is a basil simple, significant

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


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

In the desert,

00:30:01--> 00:30:04

you know, thank God. Again the staff attending

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


00:30:07--> 00:30:10

Jaffna presenting the start equipment

00:30:13--> 00:30:16

you find on top of this, a dashboard, one of the

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

what is huddling

00:30:23--> 00:30:26

in the Nomad, get off the saddle,

00:30:28--> 00:30:29

the camel back because

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

that to me was one

00:30:35--> 00:30:40

of the double, double coin, not allow the need of the gavel.

00:30:42--> 00:30:44

And the purpose of this is that when you tried to kneel

00:30:45--> 00:30:46

down, it would run away.

00:30:47--> 00:30:51

So if you got out, you turned your back, he started to move

00:30:52--> 00:30:58

back and forth in the debit. That's critical. He did have the demo, he says that

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


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

will have taken the debit.

00:31:10--> 00:31:19

Again, they had been critical. And of course writing the template in the way you're going to be brought up? How do you keep the top of your head.

00:31:20--> 00:31:22

And holding on to your head,

00:31:23--> 00:31:24

you're going to ask now

00:31:26--> 00:31:30

we see the gods and the goblins guiding them.

00:31:33--> 00:31:41

So this is like, check this edition of where you send out an app, he's driving his Mercedes dyno test with the

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

10 gallon hat. And it's all

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

about where the car is a little bit.

00:31:51--> 00:31:52

I said tradition

00:31:56--> 00:32:00

came out of necessity. Similarly, you finally go to the home,

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


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

an environment

00:32:06--> 00:32:15

to find people sitting at on the floor. And the shows instead of being served, they are crucial. But again, if you think back to the Nomad existence, as a practical

00:32:18--> 00:32:19

matter, you're not

00:32:20--> 00:32:21

allowed to sit down.

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

With empty normally, when you stop at a place, you fill it up with whatever is available, you know, and then you can rest on it when you finish back out to the back on your terminal.

00:32:33--> 00:32:34


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

is super,

00:32:38--> 00:32:39


00:32:41--> 00:32:44

Super, I started on that tradition as well, if

00:32:48--> 00:33:05

you're familiar with is that the date of death, we're coming from an environment where we're used to, we can do Saturday and Sunday. Now this is related to the fact that Friday is the new day and an added date for the weekend.

00:33:07--> 00:33:12

So it has religious origin. The other thing you find in terms of separation of the sexes.

00:33:13--> 00:33:19

Yeah, what's it like diversity education, or in a home setting or whatever you want to miss.

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

Sit down

00:33:24--> 00:33:24


00:33:25--> 00:33:29

your life, we'll go and sit with the other women, and you will fit them in

00:33:30--> 00:33:31


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

they are the planets tradition,

00:33:37--> 00:33:39

begin actually in the place of worship,

00:33:41--> 00:33:43

is competition because of the word of worship

00:33:45--> 00:33:53

of each other, bowing and perfecting, that the men played together and the women behind together

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

soon as a man or a woman standing next to you

00:34:04--> 00:34:06

will concentrate on God

00:34:07--> 00:34:08


00:34:10--> 00:34:13

with a woman face separately and behind them in and then

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

separately, and beyond that

00:34:17--> 00:34:18


00:34:21--> 00:34:22


00:34:23--> 00:34:24

I believe in

00:34:26--> 00:34:28

a document 85% of the customer base.

00:34:30--> 00:34:32

So it does deliver

00:34:33--> 00:34:39

some understanding of what Islam is about. And now I just give you a brief introduction to

00:34:41--> 00:34:42

understand that.

00:34:44--> 00:34:59

We understand it in a lesson environment of the individual is something which pervades the society as a whole because Islam and its teachings are comprehensive, all encompassing every aspect of human being life. So that is the

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

You find that the law of the country, in effect, all of those things took place in the country. So

00:35:11--> 00:35:18

I tend to apply Islam as the law of the land, socially, politically, economically.

00:35:24--> 00:35:28

free education, from kindergarten

00:35:29--> 00:35:30


00:35:31--> 00:35:32

in the country

00:35:33--> 00:35:49

is available to every citizen, anyone will come from the outside to study here, education is free. And this is a result of the Islamic attitudes towards education versus the rights of every member of the society, you have to find what

00:35:50--> 00:35:53

it is, again, from birth to death,

00:35:55--> 00:36:07

reflection of the slanted view in terms of healthcare. Similarly, housing for the average body wants to build a home, the government gives them approximately 1000 $200,000

00:36:10--> 00:36:10


00:36:11--> 00:36:13

25 years, to pay off.

00:36:14--> 00:36:19

So it says, is afforded a means of owning their own home.

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

Can I agree with

00:36:23--> 00:36:35

the fact that this is a country that can afford, however, when you go to another country, for example, like Sudan, where they are declared, declared to be the law of the country and even signed the last couple of years, education,

00:36:38--> 00:36:40

medical care, to the philosophy

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

that wherever the need

00:36:46--> 00:36:53

is obligatory on a commitment to provide the basic necessities of food, clothing and shelter for people,

00:36:55--> 00:37:09

and healthcare. And it's not a question of being having economic need to have the means it should be there. Because if education, for example, is not made, that becomes the question of you having the money, it means that a segment of the society

00:37:12--> 00:37:13


00:37:14--> 00:37:30

in a state of ignorance, as to why the left aside, because education in general, as a new director, may elevate themselves from being, you know, in the fourth section of the statute, the middle class or opposition to education.

00:37:31--> 00:37:39

When you deny people you take, after a certain point, you have to face the fact that education only available to those who are

00:37:41--> 00:37:56

sensitive to the problem is the society that we serve the gap between the rich and the poor. And not everybody's rich, though, we tend to think that they have a lot of money, everybody, you know, everybody's got a million dollars in his pocket. But in fact, you have gotten to a type where

00:37:58--> 00:38:06

education is available to each and every individual. So you have the mean, getting out of whatever income bracket he was born into.

00:38:07--> 00:38:24

Now, the religion of Islam itself is based on five pillars, the five pillars of faith, this is from the teachings of the Prophet himself, is that something with people later on, evolve and develop that from the teachings of the Prophet by the foundations of five

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

high principles, the first being the declaration of faith, which I mentioned before, that a person says there's no God but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of a lot when he said that he automatically emphasized

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

tell him that he is required to pray five times a day, I know you've heard the abandoned balance from the master, which divides up the day.

00:38:50--> 00:38:54

Everybody isn't obliged, inside worship.

00:38:55--> 00:39:05

At this point points are only worth of at this point, but these are the major points in the day to aid them to the concept of God in between the points is really

00:39:06--> 00:39:19

helping to develop that confidence. So a Muslim in general is incredulous about at all time. However, a minimum, this is the bottom line, the minimum which you should not go under is five times the day,

00:39:21--> 00:39:23

the back of

00:39:24--> 00:39:38

the month of Ramadan, but if you see that missing, the 30 days, that that is a complete flop. It's not a fact in the sense of some traditions where people need to give up some people don't eat or drink

00:39:39--> 00:39:53

during that period of time during the daylight hours from God, country. And again, it's not just the people, you're not just the face of God, the last leg of 17 hours you're

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

supposed to do is to help the individual develop control

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

Over the two basic urges, which drive men the urge for food

00:40:06--> 00:40:07

and protect

00:40:09--> 00:40:15

the crime, committed violence, and you're gonna find that behind them that tended to go for

00:40:16--> 00:40:19

the economic situation. And

00:40:21--> 00:40:26

the third major principle of compatibility, which is

00:40:28--> 00:40:32

a one accumulated income surplus

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


00:40:34--> 00:40:35

the left,

00:40:36--> 00:40:39

which are not using older period of the year,

00:40:40--> 00:40:42

that is given to the needy

00:40:44--> 00:40:50

person in demand, you know, a church leader or to any decision is given to people.

00:40:52--> 00:41:08

And it is supposed to reinforce in the minds of people that love some God given plan. And that's why some people have money while others those, ultimately, the destiny of God, we have a duty with money,

00:41:09--> 00:41:30

we do not have money. So we have to share what God has given us. And in that way, we confirm our faith in God, that the faith is not just something that you said but for the manifest, you know, after the last principle is that of disablement you've all heard about once in a year, you know, this unfolded in Mecca, at least once in their lifetime.

00:41:31--> 00:41:50

That comprises the basic five pillars. Now, before I turn the situation over to you all, to come back to the, you know, some questions or comments, etc. I just want to mention a few very common misconceptions, clarify them, hopefully. The first is that Muslims are terrorists.

00:41:53--> 00:41:58

This thing seems to be synonymous in much of the Western influence.

00:41:59--> 00:42:05

However, let it be known that Islam, for him is what is known as terrorism,

00:42:07--> 00:42:25

bomber, airplane, killing innocent women and children is not sanctioned by Islam in any way. Such a person is considered a criminal, a sinner, punishable by God or by the state of Utah. This is a major thing, taking innocent life.

00:42:26--> 00:42:39

So fight against combatants, those who are fighting you, taking up arms against you, that is your life. That is your duty to kill women, children, old people, etc. Who are not involved in the fight that is prohibited in Islam.

00:42:43--> 00:42:49

occasion This is a course of action is specifically related to the to the Palestinian Israeli

00:42:51--> 00:42:53

will take in the course of action, why is it the number one

00:42:54--> 00:42:58

that many of those who are part of that organization?

00:43:02--> 00:43:04

Other questions other than

00:43:06--> 00:43:07

that as a Muslim,

00:43:08--> 00:43:09

there is no

00:43:12--> 00:43:14

second principle that

00:43:16--> 00:43:16


00:43:18--> 00:43:19

males are mostly homosexuals.

00:43:21--> 00:43:32

Because coming from Western tradition, we see people walking around holding men holding hands, normally in North American context, and

00:43:34--> 00:43:45

the men walk around holding hands, we say that something is wrong here. Right? And you got people in accordingly. However, in this part of the world,

00:43:47--> 00:43:48

it is not considered

00:43:50--> 00:43:55

sexual. There's no sexual imposition behind the land holding another hand.

00:43:57--> 00:44:00

As we shook hands in the West, go to the man it

00:44:02--> 00:44:09

is only a a show of friendship has no sexual overtones. It's not to say that

00:44:11--> 00:44:11

Java was

00:44:13--> 00:44:13

you know,

00:44:15--> 00:44:20

Islam does not function homosexuality, nor does the law of dysfunction, which is based on Islam.

00:44:22--> 00:44:26

the death penalty for homosexuality one was involved in the app taught in the app

00:44:28--> 00:44:33

as one you know, for both sides, the door and the one thing does, Mr.

00:44:35--> 00:44:35


00:44:38--> 00:44:43

just mentioned that doesn't mean when a lot together that may mean that they're not gonna

00:44:46--> 00:44:48

matter how good they may be.

00:44:50--> 00:44:53

have chosen to live under the law or the under law.

00:44:58--> 00:44:59

misconception is

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

As Islam was said that

00:45:03--> 00:45:11

the largest Muslim country, Indonesia, 150 million Muslims never saw a single Muslim soldier.

00:45:12--> 00:45:36

So not majority of people that we know now today, as Muslims, whether in Africa, or in India, etc, the vast majority of these people came into the cloud without ever coming in contact with Muslim army. I'm not saying that. That's what Islam said from this. from Arabia, they did not, we're not involved with a military struggle against the kingdom of Rome,

00:45:37--> 00:45:40

the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire,

00:45:41--> 00:46:30

the empire of India, India Empire, they're involved in military struggle. They said it was a struggle, but no one was focused on the idea of not being fed by this arrow gonna travel with a sword in right hand and the pride in the left hand, you know, either you accept Islam or you lose your head. This is a false picture of the set of Islam. And it's stated very clearly in the Quran, that there is no compulsion in religion, one cannot compel anyone to become a Muslim. And the fact of that is that it's the same for 700 years. And most of the populace did not become a Christian. Islam ruled India for similar period of time, some 500 years. And

00:46:32--> 00:46:36

the vast majority of the people did not, they were not forced to become

00:46:39--> 00:46:40


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

de facto

00:46:44--> 00:46:51

general fishers has given almost nobody wants to divorce his wife, it just as the three times that he goes back all over.

00:46:53--> 00:46:58

That's the general picture of it. However, the fact is quite different.

00:46:59--> 00:47:05

That divorce is initiated by telling his wife, you are divorced, but their condition

00:47:06--> 00:47:23

he cannot pronounce that word. If the woman is in her period, let's show why. Because when a woman is in a menstrual period, you know, it affects her psychological is the biological changes in the body affects so often times, like, psychologically, she becomes cranky.

00:47:25--> 00:47:31

Soul Cycle, you know, from month to month, you know, how your life changes in moods, you know, it's something fairly obvious.

00:47:33--> 00:47:41

We're prohibited from pronouncing the word at that point, because the reason why you may be pronounced is because of that change in her

00:47:42--> 00:47:50

psychology. Know, Greg, do you already know what else is the most you cannot do so at that time, especially

00:47:51--> 00:48:01

in the in the time interval between periods, if one has had such a relationship with his life, he cannot pronounce the word in that interval.

00:48:04--> 00:48:08

He has to wait. One official estimate out of the

00:48:09--> 00:48:19

two years, this is a period in which he has not had sexual relations with him, then he can follow as he approaches the finance with his capital.

00:48:21--> 00:48:26

So it's not just a simple case of your divorce, because it's all over here you go your way.

00:48:28--> 00:48:36

Now, I should add, add, though, that one, the three months, because you have to wait over three months cycle,

00:48:38--> 00:48:43

after the announcement was made, she us until she has a mess appeared.

00:48:44--> 00:49:15

Another period. And it says, at the end of the third period, now the divorce becomes final. During that three month span of time just remain living together. In other words, to give you an opportunity to to be certain that this is what you really want to do. And usually families will get involved in the process. It's not just up to you to you know, the father and mother of the girl will come and talk to you or your parents will talk to her in depth and talk to each other. It's not just a one on one type of situation, the family who should get involved in this.

00:49:17--> 00:49:19

And when the period is over,

00:49:20--> 00:49:31

is over. There's no long drawn out court battle. No, you wash your dirty linen in public. No, she did this to me. And he did that to me and he was with this girl and you heard that man? No.

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

Of course it is.

00:49:35--> 00:49:44

That your family philosophy is that if you enter into marriage, by merely saying I do. Why should it be difficult for me to come out by

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

the fact that it's so easy to come up with a general sense, kill the rate of divorce due to the family and social pressures which encourage families to stay together very low.

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

In spite of the ease, that is just it is

00:50:07--> 00:50:22

not acceptable, in fact of the oppression of women. So there's no depression, given that Western women are oppressed, they're covered up, in a lot of the places, I've been referred to as VMO, that moving objects, you know,

00:50:27--> 00:50:32

sort of dead, right. And the tendency is to think of them because they're covered in the pocket of V.

00:50:34--> 00:50:37

Right in the back of Boston, and all these other things, right, then.

00:50:39--> 00:50:46

However, the, the philosophy behind the covering of it one of protection of the woman

00:50:49--> 00:50:58

look at the the force of evil, because she was the one who got Adam from the string No, because in Islam, time efficient, Adam was responsible,

00:50:59--> 00:51:04

he is the head of the family, he does the bus the brunt of this responsibility.

00:51:05--> 00:51:21

So, he was not considered, you know, that simple, double influence, you know, type of individual who have to watch out for who was punished with the pains of childbirth or that he lacked that she did. In Islamic teachings, this is not the case.

00:51:22--> 00:51:29

She is looked at as a weak link in the society she and children, women and children,

00:51:32--> 00:51:35

our second clock, but the reality of the woman,

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

the top

00:51:38--> 00:51:40

100 yard Olympic

00:51:41--> 00:51:42


00:51:43--> 00:51:47

more than the top High School American,

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


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

There's a big difference. Physically, I'm sure I don't have to convince you I know.

00:51:58--> 00:52:06

I might have to get into arguments about this issue. That command is fairly obvious that women are weaker, physically speaking than men.

00:52:07--> 00:52:15

A weakness means that whenever men and women mix together, really women will suffer.

00:52:17--> 00:52:21

You are familiar with the case is going on in the in the military right now.

00:52:23--> 00:52:34

Where the officers had that party, and female officers were made to run a gauntlet where the men were ripping off the girls on the way fondling them. And now the big Chase, people are losing their positions a job

00:52:36--> 00:52:36

over this.

00:52:38--> 00:52:47

One incident, they did a survey, you know, two years ago in the army, and the sound from the general down to the female couple.

00:52:49--> 00:52:53

As one body, they claim that they were under harassment.

00:52:54--> 00:52:58

Women in the life of the profession, are in this

00:52:59--> 00:53:09

situation, where they mixed with because it is the nature of men, when he mixes with a woman who assess themselves

00:53:13--> 00:53:14

over that woman

00:53:16--> 00:53:20

some people are able to control themselves and sacrificial

00:53:21--> 00:53:23

many people are not

00:53:25--> 00:53:32

all you have to do is any female left to go on the subway in rush hour, New York City, you know, what's it like?

00:53:35--> 00:53:40

And this is not a phenomenon only in America is a phenomenon around the world anywhere if it happened here, because

00:53:42--> 00:53:55

this is a measure of the atomic principle is that women are separated from the men to protect them from this harassment. So education from grade one to PhD, separate education,

00:53:56--> 00:53:57

the separately educated

00:53:59--> 00:54:13

apart it is not a requirement that they have separate institutions. If you may find some other Western countries where men and women attend the same universities that there will be a separation in the classroom that the woman will be on one side the men will be on the other side.

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

In the front or in the back. You have to be you know, separate school to gather needs to do so society's got to do it that way. And that is one of the methods

00:54:25--> 00:54:29

criminal you'll find your now women's back when a guy cannot

00:54:31--> 00:54:38

cannot come sometimes women hear the video shops in his shop decided that women not allowed to enter was this

00:54:40--> 00:54:42

reminds us of what that means used to happen in America and

00:54:48--> 00:54:51

the reason for that is that these

00:54:52--> 00:54:55

shops are usually quite small and

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


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

All harassment. So they found that they have not allowed them to go in there. But they're not allowed to go in there doesn't mean that the second time because it's the same way men and women, that is the bank, that doesn't mean that men or women, this is a process of maintaining cooperation for the protection of the woman

00:55:22--> 00:55:25

will help in all the major cities, large shopping malls and

00:55:29--> 00:55:29


00:55:32--> 00:55:35

But in Riyadh Gohan should they

00:55:37--> 00:55:38

wish, discuss

00:55:39--> 00:55:53

about it so much with us, the Saudis have area, they'll tell you where they are. We're only women. And this is based on the principle that for a woman to go, she wants to buy some factories in Brazil, you know, and demanded that in her website, what

00:55:54--> 00:56:02

is the issue of modesty? You know, for that, for the woman not to be put in that kind of situation, they have their own

00:56:04--> 00:56:06

voice or something, yes, women are. But

00:56:08--> 00:56:13

to be in an area where the only dealing with women, these institutions have also been set up.

00:56:14--> 00:56:28

And in terms of riding on the back of the bus, you know, the buses, you have a section in the back with a woman, right? But if you are here, when buses were first introduced, women rode in the front of the bar, they put a place in the front of the bar,

00:56:30--> 00:56:42

that the men had to pass through the front to get to the back. But I found that even whether the woman was separated from the men in the front, that harassment was taking place. So what they decided to do is

00:56:44--> 00:56:51

a separate section for the woman in the back where they go in, and they will pay the money, I'm sure they pay a fee for the left side.

00:56:54--> 00:57:02

Was that decided? No, what do you think of the American context or the back of the bus? You're mentioned, second class status. This is not the case here.

00:57:03--> 00:57:13

So these are the main ones that came to my mind based on things that have been said to me in the past. And some other questions, if you'd like to read that, before I head over to you,

00:57:15--> 00:57:16

especially for those

00:57:17--> 00:57:18


00:57:19--> 00:57:20

the name

00:57:22--> 00:57:32

associated with Islam, and also Elijah Muhammad, I would like you to know that these individuals have nothing to do with Islam.

00:57:34--> 00:57:42

farrakhan may claim he is a Muslim. But the teachings that he proposes that he follows have nothing at all to do with

00:57:44--> 00:57:50

an origin and not comply with the fundamental purpose of God and men.

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

By Islam,

00:58:00--> 00:58:04

as well as a number of other content, I just wanted to make that clear, Malcolm X.

00:58:05--> 00:58:07

In the latter part of his life,

00:58:09--> 00:58:12

when he was kicked out of Elijah's organization,

00:58:13--> 00:58:22

to become an orthodox Muslim, paid for him to go and make cash, on his way to live in Hawaii has he found, you know, from

00:58:23--> 00:58:25

Algeria, Morocco, the pilot will

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


00:58:29--> 00:58:35

like a North American. You have Europeanized and he has been from the very beginning.

00:58:37--> 00:58:40

So let's go and work from the wrong color, shape size.

00:58:41--> 00:58:49

It became clear to him that what he had gotten of the teachings of Elijah was hot, that black people were bad, and why people were devil, you know, reverse racism.

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

This was

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

when he came back to America, he came back to America understanding what Islam was.

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

When he came back, he was then backed out of the media, you didn't hear about him anymore. And within six months, he was assassinated. So he had made the transition to what is known as orthodox Islam.

00:59:15--> 00:59:20

Okay, now I'd like to turn it over to you. And before

00:59:21--> 00:59:24

giving you the opportunity to speculate one more point. And that is

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

wherever you get the opportunity to visit in the home of the people here, and the families that your families need their family, you know, to be something of the culture and the people should be home to take advantage of it. Do not think that because somebody is inviting you to their home and expecting generosity, that the hidden agenda behind all that is decide to converge. Remember that it is fundamentally a part of the people and of the religion for people to be hospitable.

01:00:00--> 01:00:17

as a guest in the country, and it is natural for them to invite you to be hospitable towards you. What you don't want to talk about, you don't have to talk about what you would like to talk about, you can talk about, you can talk about anything you want to talk about, there are no no forbidden topics.

01:00:20--> 01:00:24

Even the issue of the month, I know many people have been told that you cannot I

01:00:26--> 01:00:29

don't even go there. But in fact, it is up

01:00:30--> 01:00:36

to you. And for the month, when it's time for prayer, he would assume that you are

01:00:38--> 01:00:55

going to play you're standing back, you're gonna feel something's wrong with you. So you're going to get hostile as to why you didn't join the prayer, you have to go through a good explanation that's different. That is definitely if you'd like to see the inside of a massage and look like there's nothing hidden. You know, like the Masons, they got to get to all you got to practice a third degree before we can get into

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

the mosque is an open area, anybody can go outside and get

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

your gun back out here and there was nothing hidden from you.

01:01:14--> 01:01:27

If you have an idea what is inside of it, it's not a hidden book, it's not a secret. You don't have to touch it to get me to talk alone, you can get it in the market, they have competitors here, in the office here, they will have some copies,

01:01:28--> 01:01:36

I assume they do have them, you know, you can borrow one you want, I've looked at it, you have an idea, you know, you're here,

01:01:37--> 01:01:51

take advantage of the situation, you know, learn something, learn something other people's their ways, their idea of the system, because this will help you to understand and help you in your dealings with the people. Okay,

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

that's about all I had, you know, I leave it up to you all. Now, if you have any questions, or any comments, you'd like to make anything, which I said, you felt like you raise

01:02:03--> 01:02:05

confusion that you'd like to get clarity on.

01:02:06--> 01:02:08

No topic is ready to

01:02:09--> 01:02:10

talk about aging?

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


01:02:53--> 01:02:54

they don't have to tell you.

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

Because, you know,

01:03:06--> 01:03:09

this is john, this is on the bounds of what is allowable legally.

01:03:39--> 01:03:53

I'm sorry, no, that will happen. I know, my mother is not a Muslim. And when I was in Riyadh, you know, I was in the market one time with her and, you know, with our chairman, what my mom to cover

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

had to explain to my

01:03:58--> 01:03:58


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

in enthusiasm to try to maintain you know, an atomic identity some people have gone overboard, and these errors in the end it there have been cases where people have stuck other people lived and reported and been reprimanded in or even lost their job in Riyadh, you know, because the the community there have been informed that they are aware of what is required of them, you know, unless it's actually in fact beyond about

01:04:34--> 01:04:42

because you'll find that also from a dealer, and the dealer, which is we're not allowed to enter

01:04:44--> 01:04:59

like a restricted area. We all in every society have restricted areas, you know, whether it is an organization or whatever, you know, as long as a complete system this is a restricted area, which has been restricted by the prophet himself in order to establish a sanctuary

01:05:00--> 01:05:12

sanctuary where people committed Central and single ideal would congregate in the place of pilgrimage to try to minimize the effects of you know other cultures.

01:05:14--> 01:05:24

They've lived in established from the time of the Prophet however, you know the other areas of the country if you go down in the area only specific for Mecca and Medina

01:05:45--> 01:05:45


01:05:52--> 01:05:52


01:07:13--> 01:07:13

because not

01:08:37--> 01:08:37

stop and go

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


01:09:15--> 01:09:17

the early 90s

01:09:49--> 01:09:50

The more that you

01:09:56--> 01:09:56


01:09:58--> 01:09:58


01:10:57--> 01:10:57

I'm Ashley

01:13:46--> 01:13:46


01:13:50--> 01:13:51


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


01:15:07--> 01:15:12

because they're brought into the country, brought in for the consumption of the majority of people.

01:15:17--> 01:15:17


01:15:20--> 01:15:21


01:15:24--> 01:15:25

you can't get

01:15:31--> 01:15:32

rid of it.
