class Prophet Muhammad from Allah Ya, Allah and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last
topic of today's course
basically concerning shape on Satan
and his relationship to mankind
and to understand the concept of taken
from the Islamic point of view
it's important for us to understand that Satan is an actual individual,
not a symbolic figure. Some people may seek to explain Satan in terms of symbolism,
evil force, evilness amongst mankind or whatever. From an Islamic point of view, Satan is an individual.
that individual comes from a group of beings who are known collectively as Jim,
we have a chapter in the Quran, which has been called
to the to the Genesis
chapter, concerning the jinn.
And the reason
why a lot
of children spend a portion of revelation in
thinking about God, because
they have a direct relationship to us in our life. And it is important that we understand that relationship.
represents an order of being
which create was created like man,
however, from a different set of elements.
The angels according to them, were created from life,
mankind carrying from earth
and the jinn were created from
fire or smokeless fire
or fire when the terms by which elemental fire as described
and from the Quranic teachings,
and the statement that
we understand that the angels are incapable of doing wrong.
The law says in the Quran, that they do not disobey what they have been commanded when they do whatever.
Whereas the jinn
have a free will admit
One thing to keep in mind
as the gym
or as mankind
in its warm in relationship, to the elements from which he was created, that he was created from the earth,
but we did not conceive of man today as being
with you know, they were created from fire. We do not conceive of the gym today as being fire.
if we are to conceive of them in terms of fire, then the question arises, well if the jinn are made from fire and their fire, how then can they be punished? in fire at the end of life?
Well, that question is easily understood. When we put it into the context, same context of man, Roman is created from Earth, you can take a hardened piece of Earth and kingdom was
no longer that Earth from which he was created.
And similarly, the jinn though they were originally created for fire, they will be punished by the fire.
At any rate,
average creation was first populated by virgin
they do to the one among them to disobey the commandments, a lot
created sickness or confusion
on the earth
and allowed to,
to create another order of beings, to follow them
to be, they're committed
to the correct meaning of the term halifa. The one who come,
then mankind was created. And they took the place of the jinn in terms of being,
you know, authority over
the highest order of beings on the earth. They were the qualifier.
Omar said he was making
because people have mistakenly understood this term to be divisive, Jared have a lot
of a lot,
a lot of meat, no bite,
what he wishes he commands.
So then, was placed on the earth
as the highest order.
And after he was created,
in the form of Adam,
Allah has the angels bow,
in recognition of the superiority of Adam over the events of creation.
And among them, among the angel was
a gym, he believes, por la has elevated to that particular status, the status of being among angels,
knowledge or power, or whatever which gave him was put him on the level above that for the rest of the gym.
And when they were commanded to bow,
he refused all the angels bow, except for
I just want to clarify here that sometimes people will take certain principles
out of context
and say, Well, a lot of them in the crime that he commanded the angels to bow,
they are valid, except he believes is his evidence that he believes as an angel,
you could say corresponding with the Christian view, 15 view that there are only men and angels.
And Satan was a fallen angel, some of the angels could disobey God became
were deciding you know, angels did not God
Satan was amongst them allow the probe and the fact that he told the angels to bow about
knowing full well at least is not an angel.
it is not inconsistent, dramatically to say
the students are left the classroom except the teacher
drains and then because if you say the students are left the classroom or somebody came in and said all the students leave the classroom versus the other students left the classroom except the teacher. It's not a problem doesn't mean that the teacher is a student.
In Arabic, we use
certain terms the general term, which will cover everybody, and they say Salaam Alaikum
covers both males and females.
That mean that only the people who should respond should be the male because especially for male or
to the command being given to the angels, and then marbling separately has to be taken in the context of the Quran as a whole. Where there are a number of other verses worrying a lot that specifically in reference to lead can imagine that he was from above.
And furthermore, when Allah asked
why he didn't bow, he said
I am better than him.
You created me for fire and created him.
So, there is a need,
explaining the reason why he did because he felt
a lot of
times, when we take all of us together, it becomes very clear, very obvious. It
a group of beings.
a lot has relayed to us the story
story concerning Satan,
in order to make us aware,
are the dangerous relationships that exist?
Why would they not perceive
unless we have been guided by revelation, because Satan is not an individual in the sense of walk amongst the five senses and Satan.
Satan is an individual will operate this
vigorously involved in sending or trying to send manifests.
But he is not readily visible.
This is why it was necessary for revelation to come to clarify for us who he was.
And the story of Adam,
begin begins with Lisa's refusal to bow.
And as I said, his refusal to bow because he said, I am better than him.
is the essence
This is what is being portrayed right there. pride,
pride itself, I am better than him. I'm from the tribe of those who are made a fire
from the weight of the gym.
We are better than men.
For our Islamic point of view, the original
This is why tribalism, nationalism and racism, which are all the different expressions of this tribe itself, a nation of tribes.
This is why before he did in his last
segment behind that
whoever called tribalism, nationalism,
very important, because we're in a time when nationalism ranks between
nationalism is what is divided up,
which keeps us apart, unable to become that one nation, and a lot commanded to be there.
So the story
begins with one of
pride, which the problem is I've got an article that
whoever has said a mustard seed with a pride in his heart will not answer.

And he gave as an example,
a time when I was walking with one of his wife.
And a couple of companions came upon them.
So they heard it's like walking in another direction.
And he said, This is my wife, Sophia.
And this is
why why did you have to tell her that you don't have any doubt about?
I told you that because to avoid the possibility of Satan putting in your heart that he will follow as needed.
they are revelations from a lot of guidance from Allah.
God them to clarify for him that in order to remove the possibility, there is no such thing come into their heart because it's not that they personally and with themselves have that thought. But Satan can put it in the heart
can come into the mind, these type of thoughts can come in, even though you are not that type of a person, you're not thinking in this direction. You find thoughts coming into your mind. This is why I said that, in combination

Full a lot of thinking that often. We're not held to account for those
outcomes in our mind.
But we reflect on the teachings of the past.
Once was terrible, don't speak about it.

And you mentioned, you mentioned one,
I mentioned that Satan will fit in the top of a person's with love

And we'll put the idea in his mind to give up your family.
it is now the fear comes into the hearts of some teachers, they're about to accept Islam, and the fear comes over and I become a Muslim, my whole family's going to reject me.
All my friends, my co workers is that it is likely that I'm going to be all by myself.
Am I ready for that.
But if the person's
consciousness is strong,
desire or desire to, to submit to a life from then they don't fear mankind more than a lot.
Because when a person decides not to become afraid of what's going to happen,
etc, the case of women who are married, you know, because there was my husband gonna say
when a person stops
coming into the club, because of that, it means that their fear of man is greater than their fear of a loss
is not true worship.
are not allowed to fear mankind anything of creation more than fear.
Come to this channel, laying on our emotions, not wanting to be cut off from family.
And if the person says

they can then come to us and say, Are you willing to give up your home,
you already have a home here, you know, in this part of the country, you
don't want to give up your home, or their
family or everybody's going to give that up and go, again, the motion

They're claiming that it would be secular, etc.
And the area which would be Pakistan, land of the future, whether it actually, like I said, I'm not
talking about the concept, there was that effort to call for his Rolodex.
While many of the people in India decided to make

Now, after making the
in the case of jihad,
now, when the call comes,
because jihad is something which will stand until the Day of Judgment of London, as there are people who are calling
for the oneness of Allah, the establishment of righteousness, then jihad is insensitive, because the forces of evil wants to destroy that call,
worship of one God and the establishment of righteousness, the forces of evil will
cooperate, work together
outside of the Muslim nations as well as inside the Western nations to try to destroy the car.
So, they have to be

In that regard, as
I mentioned the particular individual,
the question is,

he has different people looking for
a particular location, wherever it may be, and he turns out
sometimes he is the one who is directly involved.
But, when you view movement, you know, how people come to you and tell you from

I don't want anybody else to share that desire to want to control and maintain
relationship to that power or wealth or
in the Bible that says
the love of money is
correct. It is the love of money.
Breathing in money
with no power.
Okay, I read it was clarified that, you know if some people make activity, the court says, you know that well, Monday is the source of all evil, you know, to
clarify that this, in fact is not in the Bible, but what we find in the Bible is reference to the love of money or love of wealth being the source of evil. And that
mark, when a person loves that wealth more than the person loves the last
I will do that. Even the statement, the love of money is the source of all evil over the counter perspective as we know.
Because Allah created us with a love for money, we all have a love for wealth.
This is not true. This is why the communist system would never succeed. Because it's thought through.
Naturally, this is something that you learn, your desire, to possess and to own and control is something that is taught by the society. But really what you should have is this
desire of curing, not one of presenting
the communist system, the setup is society where everybody would share whatever they had, you know, if you have
more, if you have less, you would take more.
You have to because of the nature
of love, or the desire
to oversell This is part of human nature, alive.
Is that necessary, it is necessary for our survival.
It is necessary for our survival.
If we don't have a desire to want to possess something, we cannot
handle that value. In other words,
if the animal doesn't have any sense of ownership, possession of the material things of the world where they don't have any societies anything, there's a part of
for providing for your family.
But the point is that,
that I desire
that you may fulfill that desire in the

we all have a duty to share.

he sat with and gave them the message.
It is referred to as the primary source of references made in our data and methods back to the people. There wasn't anything of a treatment, but he gave the message to them and they accepted it.
Okay, this was a lesson from a lot for,
you know, after being rejected by some of his own family, you know, being from another world.
The second part concerning the story of
on one occasion,
and they observed him whipping out his hands, and seems to be struggling with something.
They asked him about it.
And he narrated to them that
it never come to me. And while he was in the prayer, and had a
flavor, tried to push it in his face, to cause him to be distracted from it.
So he reached out and caught the devil by his neck, and was squeezing the neck
power over the neck until he said that he could feel the coldness of his saliva on hand. And he thought, he thought, to tie it to one of the pillars of the market.
it would then become visible and that the people, the children of Medina would come and play with it. You know,
when he remembered the
publication of prophecy, the manner
in which he had asked the Lord to give him a power, a control, which he would give to no one
and that was given to him. It was controlled over the Jin
Work for profit.
And realizing that realize it was not possible for him to do what he thought to do. Because that control was given only profit.
So that we understand that it's not possible for any human being to gain control over again, you have some people in some countries saying, you know, I have people working for me,
you know, my, my father had to do to come and clean the house every day.
We understand that it is not possible for human beings to gain control over the gift, it is possible for him to do something for human beings, but they will only do it as a means to draw them into shape.
If they're involved,
or they're, they're encouraged to be involved with one or the other for them to get that kind of relationship. So it's more of a contractual relationship, I will do something for me for you, if you do something for me,
in terms of
and we know this is another category, they know that their relationship to human beings
should not involve contracts, contracts, you know, dealing with,
or we are not involved in the normal relationships with humans, what you find in most cases, where people are involved,
but it is possible in the cases of possession, and sometimes they personally project
for certain reasons, by deleting things. And not just the worst cases it is
possible. But to really get into that is one of the things I would suggest is a book I've
translated together called Jamie's essay
going to give a question,
is the correct way for a lot of the creator of evil
rather than referred to himself,
as the creator of evil in the direct those indirectly, we understand that whatever it is, in this world, is from the creation.
So we don't refer directly to a lot from a point of
view that it is not difficult for us to say unlock creativity.
directly, low, we seek refuge in Allah insha Allah,
from the evil of that which was created by the evil,
evil, which is in
have the fish, the virus,
picking your neck, I mean,
evil is relative evil,
which is not evil.
But whatever evil exists in creation, it is by the will of Allah. Allah allow us
to make it louder to come in to allow you to think evil, and to do evil. He gave you the power, the physical power of your body to act, but he still allows you to
make all your evil plans
and try your hardest to do that.
that was the wrong model. He's allowed to provide a lot of
evil which takes place in Bible willing alone. We don't say that a lot.
He created man
with the ability to go through the roof
and he gave him the
which means the coming of evil into existence without
one of the other things
and he will seem to be overcoming Islam or the
within the Western countries to establish Islam
if we are not in that position
then for the sake of the practice of Islam they
they have want to
go someplace else where they can work
more effectively or they can remain in that circumstance can strive to overcome the evil and to do that in the form of direct jihad or preparing for jihad or you know, whatever individual stage that one may be on.
Why is it that Allah only directed the command to bow
to the angels? What about Adam writing the direct command
only to the angels as a brief who is among the angels and not to the game in general
Of course, I have decided to enter into a realm where analogy
what we understand is that a lot of leads to that position to be alone
Why exactly or how exactly
he has been elevated to that particular fact.
And when the command is given us the most of those
the Commandments were given to the rest of the game
because it may have been obvious to them
on the topic of the average
in a manner
and we relate
in reality, because
it is not even reality, but if we use it
particular, okay, I better
get good is that if we
continue that he will is like the bowl of the fish, well,
if we understand that it is relative, it means that there is no
actually if we
have that understanding and acting according to that understanding
a portion of evil is relative, but then there is another portion with you.
You know, when an evil
allow the keys to be formatted such
that you know the whole life was good, because then good comes to him
when he will come

in reality, really,

he is evil in reality.
So, we have both, we have to deal with that we have to realize that we can become evil individuals, when we act on evil thoughts

we may be the one who starts with us or it may come from external forces people around
