And what comes along with it, of course, at the end of Ramadan, people are watching each other.
it was important
to know whether this, in fact, was from the way of the Prophet Muhammad
is something which people have added as time went by.
And the Alliance has confirmed

as conveyed to us by the prophets, which we call this enough, that if we do not follow it, as it was, then becomes what is cursed by God and religion

innovation. And that's it some time I said that we should fear the worst of appearances immigration
and every innovation in religion.

and our practical innovations need to help.
Surely, when we look at what has happened to Christianity, we see a classic example

That's one possibility is innovation.
Very simple, but we can find
what happened is that the changes which took place in Christianity, it will take place at one time, it was a series of little things

So, the physical movements of the globe
that we say, it is rare to have an effect on us in such a way as to create
a righteous individual who speaks righteousness

So, again, these physical

these are part and parcel of a system, which will help us to spiritually

as you have some sects of Christianity, you know, like the Amish and others on a particular dress in a way. Some of them they refused electricity because they understood innovation so they will drive around and you know,
in that way that we're wearing the feeling that you cannot change anything Oh, yes, we're both things which are directly which
is the area where change is not allowed. Because the religion came from the Prophet Muhammad Allah

it is true that because we use as a get well card

against loci such as the sending of the cards, and particularly for that religious
or the religious, these locations
from their practices have nothing to religion.
I have a birthday card, you graduated from high school or university or

change that if you send a card for a guest well, right and guess what archive
Because we get to archive has no connection with religious and religious occasions.
On graduating, there's no harm. But now
on the religious occasions, which we've done with
our religious occasion, it is what
in my estimation
involves a imitation of people in a religious locker which becomes a leader with an innovation in my opinion.
As far as I can give you for myself, you know,
you're always walking with
our fathers, because I'm not really to a party or anything.
We're here to get further feedback on the subject, if you feel you know, some doubts building itself and turning it
on, if you have all the feedback, bring it next week and let us all you know share further. So, in summary

The practice of giving the card attention is not to imitate the practice of another people in giving the card but I tend to forget that you're doing the practice okay?
to beautify our homes
and there's nothing wrong with the intention of
the idols of other people,
do a valid and acceptable intention
was to take pictures of human beings and animals.
It's not acceptable
we are also required to comply with the commandments of God
ultimately, our intentions will be
used to judge how we fulfill those commands.
So the concept of intention is not one
question about evil that I do? God knows my intention, no.
One who commits adultery or fornication, what was your intention when you're doing
that is what a lot
of what you have done is wrong and you will be punished
to the extreme of the question of intention and practice is
for him to get a large amount
of data, that you can use it as a general principle for him to get in the audience when you sit in a very open sense, when you take it down to the to the more hidden sense it is also
the principal Yes.
intentions that make it will act or incorrect act.
If something is not collected, it is imitation of a pizza.
And I'm not negating the fact that a lot is great.
One was done something anything.
Give reward for that. And the classical example of that is the case mentioned inside
of an individual
we think that he had done
several times but you know, when we add more information to
that he asked the students to learn
go down the line that
allows them to back together and hold it
This concept is alarm.
Clock, you're not getting back together
when when your children did it,
and allow all the pieces on the urban heat to come back together,

And a lot
it is motivated by winter, to allow for gains in action.
this is an exception, when we're dealing with a circumstance where things are clear

that particular day, you know, for people to know that this is
one kid got distorted into a practice.
According to the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad Abdullah, it became something
is Wait, that is the number of minutes a prayer to complete two birds on the night. If one gets up in the night, and goes, What does one do that?
there is already statements of departments that
are this odd number should be the last there, let it be your last
night so you've already got it. But if you get up in the night, you get up in the night to get up for the night fair. When you do so without repeating
whatever you wish.
He was saying in the truth, we have already done this, what
is your intention, for example, to get up at a later point in the night as I was adding,
when you finish that arbitrary night, you don't do the wizard along with the mom that when you get up in the night, then you can add it to that.
The question is When do you
get along with him all the way through the cycle? And you need to rely on completing it. Can you then get up
and you know, as if you have missed one rock and make another record to make it out again?
I don't know if he had chicken yet, but I would. I would
do that because Good luck.
And that way, you know, I feel comfortable with that, because
I understand that, I understand that. But you know, when you think about it this way, right?
When you're playing behind any man,
you're supposed to follow macchina
steps to be followed.
You are then required, whatever the second, whether it is the rain prayer, or you know, the fear of the fear or the political
issue has a parent, which the parents who are supposed to follow the
plan is your own version.
So, now, the only term that you're allowed after the mom is
an outcome is when you have something enjoying
what the dog does on the topic. Now, what you're introducing when you're dealing
with it, but I don't really want
to make it stop, I want to take it back to being a member again, hate,
I don't feel comfortable.
I didn't want to
I think a
lot of people do all kinds of things.
And attentively as I said, you know, as I said, right, I'm giving you what I have, what I how I feel, you know, you opportunity to ask other people
or you know, what you feel like?
What is right? And what do you feel comfortable in your heart
if you will feel uncomfortable about it, no matter what's
going on, got one another one that gives you uncomfortable and
is ready to leave
in which they are doubts, for the thing about which you are sure.
The general principle
having a difficulty putting a
the danger of this kind of weakness,
a way in which they make a lot when they hold their hands I get
that when you place your right hand on your left hand, what you do is you grab your

tray as you see me
to combine the two.
The thing is that we have to be very careful about this line of reasoning. We're in an attempt to try to combine between this and that we create something which
something which we have
we have to work out something and this is something which is optional.
We have no other options. So why not take the other options which we are certain about which are okay. Instead of going into something which are question
argues and explains and sticks together.
There is danger here
Suggest whether you think that two things cannot be combined. If it was always that there are two things that you will want to do that you can combine
things that we don't wish to do, but sometimes you just take a moment and think about the religion things that you would like to combine this
together because there's a present which
if you go all the way to
the wedding for the
exactly, exactly what he did is not compatible.
What comes up for example, issue we have
a trade by yourself behind the line, you are not accepted right people line up for you to choose and they all go by yourself behind the lines
we have been commanded to pray in groups together in the masjid. So, for us to choose to go up and say by yourself
an individual who comes
after the lightest
he finds the line
the prayer by yourself behind the line.
Now, some people have suggested is that you to somebody
or somebody from the end of the line
This is a practice which is commonly done here.
On the middle, everybody has to shift What's up everybody up and the man you're dragging.
Look at the effects of your actions. When you have to look to see
what do you then have to look at
lot was the influence of the
person who chose to play by himself
for somebody who chooses to play by himself
because you feel
that when I look at the lineup for people I prefer to play by myself. And I really like being closer closer.
Which is the fair which is not accepted
in my opinion,
is a group of
people from life.
general principle you won't get a loss to the degree that you're able
to get the degree that you
I didn't quite get
it right, there are things that I get.
Yeah, because you do actually form a trail which is made and we'll do something for one with the public
has become a standard people feel like every time you make literally
it was not
even that kind of intention
ultimately we try
to avoid these kind of combinations when we're trying to get the best of both worlds and end up with Eagle worlds.
And I think we should close up now. We're thanking everybody for coming and congratulating everybody on the events and we pray that the law accepts your Ramadan fasting. And we want you all as many as
you deserve. And close to the
technical overview of shadow law.
