the criterion to distinguish between those people who are practicing Islam.
And those people who are practicing cultural traditions, which in fact have nothing to do with Islam.
Because it produces corruption in the society.
we find that people oftentimes commit these crimes and states of intoxication.
People get intoxicated.
I know before I left, you know, when we used to go to parties,
everybody would feel they have to have some drinks.
In otherwise, what happens is that you have to do things that you wouldn't do if you weren't.
And this is why you find many of
these are conducted under times of intoxication.
We find, for example, where people are involved in car accidents,
the vast majority of the car accidents in America, they take place as a result of drunken driving.
How many people are maimed and killed on the road because of something like
fever getting home to the society as a whole are people who drink you know a lot, we find medical professionals, what happens
whenever they can affect their their brain, it affects them in physical systems, it breaks it down, it is physically harmful.
I know some people will say,
I never get

that there are people who will only take sufficient quantities, which will not in any way impair their judgment. If it only makes them feel a little nice, little warm or whatever. And they stop at that point.

Because if we were to put the condition that
only we're not getting complicated, everybody is going to say I want
to say I will get intoxicated
because very few people will admit that they will get intoxicated when they drink.
Stop it for everybody to put next to society as a whole technology individuals were not able to control

this lab allows the narrator to remain married to the female, but if a female accepts Islam, then she cannot remain married to a male.
Why? Because the male lays down the law in the hole.
He says, I want you to complete the book, without providing some alcohol, I want to have a party, I want to get to this man's life and I want him to dance with you

question why females in Islam are told to be covered and not.
is not flexible,
Okay to walk around naked,
they're totally covered. But it's only that there is a difference in the physical makeup of the male and the female. So the talk that is required of the mail to cover is not the same as that email.
Same for the male and female typically
Don't take into account
that they will have more attractive.
But the man is also required to become
a principal, which actually a lot of people are not clear on. Because temperature does
indicate, for example,
what is required for them to cover in between the navel and beneath,
between the navel and the knee.
Specifically, the area of the fire department
means not having material over the area, it means covering in such a way that this area is not
because of the covering, or you can see what's under the air in the area.
The coupling is tight.
What are you wearing tight pants, tight jeans or whatever. So, when you stand up, everybody can see
it always turn around.
If you're not considered coupling, and
prayer in this kind of just
because it is a requirement for prayer that you're trying to be covered.
So, if you are going to wear pants
in any way tight wearing, they will expose you
to wear a top, which comes down and cover that area. This is why you find when you go around the world where people have evolved dresses involve hats and shirts, that always will come down and cover this area. Or in other places. For example, when they were talking to parents, you'll find there were
some small garments which we'll cover to get started like they were covering, because it is a requirement
not to expose their target.
I think this is an area which you know, in teaching of Islam,
it is important for us to make this point clear.
This is why women
anything they want to do,
there is a requirement.
Let me just add that into the area.
So people can understand why they need to cover from the shoulder down.
But people have more difficulty in dealing with the air.
The air in the case of the woman and the air in the case of
you know, because of those people who are controlling the
people who are involved in controlling interactions.
You know, in the West, you go to find people that are homosexual
90% of them are homosexual. So what they're doing is they're trying to learn the difference between men and women, for men wearing dresses that are normally one that women a woman wearing, normally.
So they'll get the men outside to go to the to the beauty parlor and getting
a different way. But traditionally, generally speaking in society, men just want it
women going to get all these things, that's when it's blown up and it's structured in
the way of the limit.

insist that you should also cover

the words are added to the Bible. biblical scholars have pointed out that

So, in fact, the teachings of Jesus was not that he wasn't.
He's made clear that the father
was greater than he was.
And he go and practice
which teaches the distinction between the creator
based on the fundamental principle found in the basic

God doesn't have.
Because once you accept the idea that God can have a son, then the wind will come to you.
And he has a grandfather and
we're going to stop, why do you want to go all the way.
Once you open that door, you don't have the time, in fact, you are doing is you are taking God
from the level of creator and making him like
on the level that you deserve,
as the supreme being who is distinctly different from his creation.
It does not look as nice
on the teaching of the
book of divine revelation, that God did not
get in the blind.
On the day of judgment,
he told the people to watch
what the people did,
according to Islamic teachings, returned,
as one of the signs of the last day.
It is required
that Jesus, the prophet of God, Jesus will come back, he did not die, he will come back to Earth is one of the signs of the last day he will live our life on the earth, Mary has given and died.
He will not bring a new heaven.
He will be the leader of those who submit their will.
One of the criteria, it is law was allowed men to marry more than one wife.
The fundamental criteria is that
being able to maintain justice between the wife being capable of maintaining the wife
as a fundamental principle, of course, if
the wife wishes to maintain herself, that maybe remove that requirement, but as a fundamental requirement is it is that capable of maintaining those people who are married. So if he's not able to maintain more than one life, then he's not allowed to marry more than one wife.
He cannot deal justly with any offer, he's not allowed to marry more than one fundamental
Other than that, you know, people have, in time, in an attempt to try to make
allowances in Islam seem more
reasonable. They said, Well, you know, men can only marry another wife, he doesn't have any children. But this is not the condition. This is not the requirement. And human welfare is the fundamental principle, which dictates the allowance for food.
And it has nothing to do with having children or not having been quite miserable if it wasn't for the lack of desire, and every one of us
are reasonable in that circumstance. And otherwise, it is not
a question or request. So elaborate briefly on the principle of adoption. Because I mentioned to you in the case of my father was formerly an adopted son of the Prophet.
Just in case you might think that Islam allows adoption.
in the initial stages, adoption was allowed, because it was a practice amongst staff.
And it allowed in the initial stages.
Later, after the family society was established, and principles of inheritance and laws, etc, came into play, then the adoption, which involves changing the names of the people involved, was played.
By adoption, you mean taking a child and raising that child and looking after the child, it's confirmed.
By adoption, you mean taking your child and giving that child your name.
Because that child,
the child retains its own name, just as when you marry,
you do not change the name of your wife,
when you marry your wife,
because that name indicates her family, when you marry her that she become related to you in any way, illogical, she's a part of your customer, he does not become a part of your family. In that sense, he becomes a part of your family
is your wife.
But if you your family breaks up with you divorce is not a
member of your family, no.
Mom does not allow a woman when she married to change her name to the name of this practice came from Roman law among the Romans
and the wife was considered a part of their property. So, when they married they gave her the name, because the man has a free will to do anything. He wanted to kill her memory.
your wife is not considered your property, she is another individual human being who belongs to another family with whom you are cooperating in marriage.
There are a lot you cannot do what you feel to do,
which is up in that relationship and she retains her own needs. Similarly, you may take any child or any person in your family look after them to put you on for them.
Describe in your will a portion of your American sweat and you can do all that. But you may not change their name to your
adopted in the sense of looking after somebody that is confirmed.
I just got the time and said that there's only five more minutes left. And there are all bunch of questions here. I will just be able to take one more question
Are you trying to convert thanks
It is not possible for me to convert anybody.
I can only try to point out to you what I believe to be true.
And if you whatever evidence I have gathered for that
conversion is something which has to come from yourself.
If you are convinced
you may convert yourself by the will of God.
Unfortunately, in spite of the many questions that are here, because the program is set within certain bounds, we'll have to stop at this point. And I thank you for listening patiently, and hope that whatever I've said has been something to do and asked.
