Send them,

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

operation to

00:00:08--> 00:00:14

somebody and send them all those follow the process until the last date.

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

In this session,

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

I hope to be back another aspect of telehealth.

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


00:00:27--> 00:00:30

specifically in relationship to talk about that.

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

In the previous session,

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

the first session we looked at

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

various categories of

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

three categories, which we refer to as

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

either the smallest

00:00:50--> 00:01:05

unit, we have a lot of names and attributes, and a value of unity of worship of law. And in the second session, last week, we looked at certain aspects of Tolkien

00:01:06--> 00:01:07


00:01:09--> 00:01:19

specifically concerning attributes, which is referred to as an earloop, or is transcendent, being above his creation and part of his creation.

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

We also looked at

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

aspects which relate

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

in the case of people using astrology or astronomy,

00:01:34--> 00:01:43

fortune teller, etc, to give information about the future, and we showed how this destroys of heat, and how a Muslim

00:01:44--> 00:01:47

cannot be involved in such practices in any way.

00:01:49--> 00:02:04

With the exception, of course of astronomy, which deals specifically with the scientific aspects of the position of the stars, as it relates to land needs on Earth, in relationship to circling the months or the

00:02:05--> 00:02:11

directions, for travel on the sheep, as well as on land. In this session, we'll be looking at

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

an aspect of story that

00:02:17--> 00:02:22

relates to man's relationship to other human beings.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

Were coming communication

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

with God is concerned.

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

One of the ways

00:02:35--> 00:02:36

by which

00:02:38--> 00:02:41

Satan and the satanic forces

00:02:42--> 00:02:50

have succeeded in causing people who fundamentally believe in God,

00:02:52--> 00:02:56

and are seeking towards how they have managed to get these people astray,

00:02:58--> 00:03:02

is by having them worship

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

other than God, while believing that they're worshiping God. You mentioned this in the first section session, and reiterated in the second session, and this session, we'll be looking at that in more detail. We get examples among the Christians, for example, who worship God, but to Jesus.

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

And they believe that in worshiping God to Jesus, in fact, worshiping God.

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

Similarly, the Hindus

00:03:33--> 00:03:45

in worshipping statues, believe that they're worshipping God, Brahma, who is present within their statues. Now, what has happened amongst Muslims

00:03:46--> 00:03:47

is that

00:03:49--> 00:03:50

they have been

00:03:51--> 00:03:56

divorced from the direct worship of God

00:03:57--> 00:04:02

through the introduction of intermediaries, that is,

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

people who will take

00:04:06--> 00:04:10

the prayers of one God, people pray to other people,

00:04:11--> 00:04:20

with the intention that they will take those prayers to God. And we talked about this briefly in the first session, because it's also related.

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

In the the argument used by these people, is that we need intermediaries in this life.

00:04:30--> 00:04:31

To get things done,

00:04:33--> 00:04:34

we go to

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

someone who has influence what they call an RV, wash.

00:04:42--> 00:04:50

And this person will intervene on your behalf, talk to the higher officials so that you can get your affairs taken care of.

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

And they

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

say that this is the same thing that we need to do in relationship to God because of the fact that we are

00:05:00--> 00:05:26

Simple. And as such our prayers will not be heard. So the better for us to go to one who is pure of sin, you know, like prophets, saints, somebody of this nature, and this person will carry our prayers to God for us. This is the argument the rationale which is used, when we pointed out that this rationality practice is fatalistic.

00:05:27--> 00:05:28

It is

00:05:29--> 00:05:52

because it reduces God to the level of men is the same, the same way that we have to use intermediaries in our human affairs. God is like a human in the sense that he needs intermediaries, when in fact, a law has specifically stated in the why that we should call on Him with only a specific level call on me and I will add,

00:05:53--> 00:06:02

he didn't say call and those who are close to me, we said call on me and I will answer and in the past how we are taught to pray.

00:06:05--> 00:06:15

Only you do worship and from only us we seek help. This is to emphasize in our minds that we should not use any intermediaries anyway.

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

What happens

00:06:20--> 00:06:29

is that people, in spite of this very obvious information, which is

00:06:30--> 00:06:37

available as well, anybody who needs to cry, can see the noise. People have been

00:06:40--> 00:06:41

blinded to this reality.

00:06:42--> 00:06:43

from two ways.

00:06:44--> 00:06:50

Maybe more than I can think of two ways right now, one thing that

00:06:51--> 00:06:53

most people don't need to find.

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

What they do,

00:06:57--> 00:07:00

is they parrot the Arabic letters and sounds.

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

They learn how to

00:07:09--> 00:07:14

say the letters and the sounds, but they don't know what it says.

00:07:15--> 00:07:21

So the parents, the Arabic, believing that they're reading,

00:07:22--> 00:07:28

this is what has happened to a huge sector of the

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


00:07:31--> 00:07:34

they do not know what a lot is saying.

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

This is why

00:07:40--> 00:07:52

Christian missionary work has been successful among the Muslim Muslims in areas where they've been given a free hand like in Bangladesh and in Tunisia.

00:07:57--> 00:07:57


00:07:59--> 00:08:00

this means that

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

there has to be a move amongst Muslims

00:08:05--> 00:08:07

to return to the

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

to the meaning and understanding of

00:08:12--> 00:08:28

that means, since the majority of Muslims do not know Arabic, one visit the programs to learn Arabic, not just to parrot the words and sounds, but to learn and understand the meaning of

00:08:29--> 00:08:48

the Arabic words that is necessary within the educational programs amongst Muslim communities that are being shut up in our time that Arabic should be introduced. So, it becomes the second language of every Muslim if not the first,

00:08:50--> 00:08:52

this is a necessary step which has to be taken.

00:08:54--> 00:08:55


00:08:56--> 00:09:01

until that, processes becomes complete, where the vast majority of

00:09:03--> 00:09:31

it is necessary for us to rely on translation. So for languages where people do not have translations of the of the Arabic Islander languages, then these transitions need to be done. And for those who are speaking English or languages where there are calculations, it is necessary for them to read the Koran in

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

Arabic to help to develop

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

their consciousness of the Arabic with the intention of learning the Arabic grammar so that they will eventually understand the Quran as it was revealed, but for understanding they will read the translation of the Quran and understand what the Lord commands

00:10:03--> 00:10:10

If we can get the masses back to the regular reading of the choir,

00:10:11--> 00:10:15

in their languages, then a lot of the problems of space

00:10:16--> 00:10:23

in the sense of their ignorance of their relationship to God, and their obligations will be solved.

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

The other

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

problem area is that

00:10:32--> 00:10:34

we observe

00:10:36--> 00:10:40

that some people seem to be more righteous than others.

00:10:44--> 00:10:46

And because somebody seems to be more rational,

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

then people tend to depend on that.

00:10:54--> 00:11:03

This is a part of human nature. And actually, Islam encourages us to be among those

00:11:07--> 00:11:08

elements said

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

that we will be raised up

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

with those who are

00:11:17--> 00:11:21

the one who is your friend in his life, you'll be resurrected along with him.

00:11:22--> 00:11:27

So if you keep corrupt friends, then that's who you will be

00:11:28--> 00:11:29


00:11:30--> 00:11:30


00:11:31--> 00:11:34

be careful about who you take as your friend.

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

On another occasion,

00:11:38--> 00:11:39


00:11:40--> 00:11:43

said that we should choose a licensed companion.

00:11:45--> 00:11:49

Because the righteous companion is like the perfumers.

00:11:51--> 00:11:52

When you sit with him,

00:11:54--> 00:11:55


00:11:56--> 00:12:07

when you get up, he will go away, smelling good, because he's opened all these different bottles and aroma smells, when they come over, he leaves

00:12:08--> 00:12:09

he will give you

00:12:11--> 00:12:13

a small volume.

00:12:16--> 00:12:32

Whereas the bad companion is like the blacksmith, the one who works the bellows blowing the air on the hot metal and beats it to the other piece of iron,

00:12:33--> 00:12:34

or whatever.

00:12:35--> 00:12:38

While she's busy with sparks are flying all the time.

00:12:39--> 00:12:46

So if you're at this company, Hi there, some sparks are going to go on your clothes and burn all your clothes,

00:12:47--> 00:12:50

or are you going to go away speaking of smoke,

00:12:51--> 00:12:58

you know, if you sit there and those people smoke cigarettes, when you come away from them, it smells like you smoke cigarettes, same idea.

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


00:13:02--> 00:13:12

the good companion is going to help you in one way or another where the evil companion is going to harm you in one way or another.

00:13:13--> 00:13:46

So it is important for you to choose as your close companions, those who remind you of a lot, not those, when you sit down with them, they all they're talking about is this life, things of this life, they want to get a car, they want to do this, and they want to do that. And you know, and then of course, you will spend most of time talking about these things, they'll end up talking about corruption, because, you know, they you never have enough of these things. So it means that you have to be making plans to get some more of these things, which are illegal means. So they'll be talking to you about the fact that you just have to

00:13:47--> 00:14:08

keep this one and use it in games, or you may not be intending to do these things. You hear this all the time eventually going into your brain because you can close your ears, what is going into your head all the time, and it sits in your brain, it becomes subconscious thoughts. So you might find yourself under other circumstances, thinking that

00:14:09--> 00:14:19

this is how you may be affected. So it is very important that you choose people as your close friends, those who are talking about

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

righteousness, you know, improving life, you know, things that are positive.

00:14:27--> 00:14:42

It doesn't mean that they can't talk about things of this world also, because this is quite nice. But it's just that that doesn't make up the totality of what they're talking and they're not talking about the illegal ways to get these things.

00:14:43--> 00:14:53

So if you sit among people who are talking, you should advise them that it's wrong. And if they do not stop talking in this fashion, you should leave them

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

because your ears will be

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

witness for you or against you.

00:15:06--> 00:15:09

And you sit there while they continue to talk,

00:15:10--> 00:15:13

then you are also partly in sin.

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

So, we are obliged by Islam, righteous compassion. So now

00:15:22--> 00:15:24

we understand that there is a tendency

00:15:26--> 00:15:30

for people, to all those who appear to be more righteous

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

in special places.

00:15:36--> 00:15:36


00:15:37--> 00:15:39

when these people die,

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


00:15:43--> 00:15:55

will come to the people and encourage them to start doing certain practices which are away from the basic teachings of Islam, which are connected to these

00:15:58--> 00:16:03

departments I fell in love explained, this was very carefully

00:16:04--> 00:16:07

concerning certain people.

00:16:09--> 00:16:11

Where is the time of profit.

00:16:17--> 00:16:19

When these righteous people die,

00:16:22--> 00:16:23

Satan came

00:16:25--> 00:16:27

to their followers,

00:16:28--> 00:16:39

and suggested to them to make statues and paintings of these righteous people, and support them in the places where they used to sit,

00:16:41--> 00:16:56

the places their homes, by the grave, different places where they used to be, so that people when they would come to these places, would be reminded of these righteous people. And that would in turn entice them to do good

00:16:59--> 00:17:04

people and encourage them to do good, they didn't wish.

00:17:07--> 00:17:08


00:17:09--> 00:17:25

when this generation died off, time passed, Satan now came again to the next generation of people, and told them that in fact, the earlier generation was worshipping these statues and

00:17:26--> 00:17:42

paintings. And it was through their worship, that the rain came and you know, good kids in the society. And so that generation started to worship. And both of them explained that this is how it first entered amongst.

00:17:45--> 00:17:46

That is how,

00:17:47--> 00:17:49

first insert among

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

the left.

00:17:56--> 00:18:03

One, it shows us why Islam is so opposed to imagery

00:18:07--> 00:18:08

of living

00:18:09--> 00:18:10


00:18:11--> 00:18:12

whether human or animal,

00:18:14--> 00:18:14


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


00:18:21--> 00:18:23

when people choose objects of worship,

00:18:24--> 00:18:31

they most often choose those that are either in the form of human beings.

00:18:33--> 00:18:36

Either they are images of human beings,

00:18:37--> 00:18:55

or their animals, they have one with the elephant, you know, they got a monkey garden, they got a rocky they're always either human beings or animals. This is the most common you do find people also who will worship just plain old stones, but usually there are some kind of images.

00:18:56--> 00:19:00

They don't usually leave just a stone by itself and it becomes an article

00:19:02--> 00:19:08

you know, they just they have no implements no means of discarding. So,

00:19:09--> 00:19:26

this is the most common form of worship, and because of this tendency amongst men, then the issue of making statues and paintings, drawing the setup of humans and animals is totally prohibited.

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

At the same time,

00:19:35--> 00:19:38

we are also prohibited

00:19:39--> 00:19:41

from seeking

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

any kind of help

00:19:45--> 00:19:47

from those guides.

00:19:53--> 00:19:57

When a man dies, he is cut off

00:20:01--> 00:20:04

except in the case of three things,

00:20:06--> 00:20:07

some good deeds that he has done

00:20:10--> 00:20:12

in the form of knowledge people benefit from

00:20:14--> 00:20:16

some sides he has made,

00:20:17--> 00:20:20

which was benefit continues,

00:20:21--> 00:20:22

we build an

00:20:23--> 00:20:25

orphanage or something like this,

00:20:26--> 00:20:32

or he has a righteous son, South, who prays for him

00:20:33--> 00:20:34

this way he can take,

00:20:36--> 00:20:39

but in terms of him benefiting those

00:20:40--> 00:20:41

who are living,

00:20:44--> 00:20:50

he enters into the state of Florida and he can no longer have any contact with him.

00:20:55--> 00:21:02

So, such a person, no matter how righteous they are, can do nothing for us.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12


00:21:14--> 00:21:15


00:21:16--> 00:21:23

Allah has favored some of us over others in a variety of ways.

00:21:26--> 00:21:28

But he should look to those below.

00:21:33--> 00:21:37

because it reminds us of Allah mercy.

00:21:43--> 00:21:49

Allah has said in the bond that he has favored. Some men over others in wealth

00:21:51--> 00:21:57

is famous some profits over others, though we look at the profits of one brother who

00:22:03--> 00:22:07

some of whom we favored over others, some loss to directly.

00:22:09--> 00:22:11

Prophet Musa spoke to

00:22:13--> 00:22:20

the gods, the revelation she received was direct Word of God, without the agency of the angel,

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

of miracles like in the case of Jesus,

00:22:30--> 00:22:34

in terms of closeness to God,

00:22:37--> 00:22:45

and this is something which the individual earns, is not merely a favor.

00:22:48--> 00:22:52

Because the favor was alive, give them the gift of wealth,

00:22:53--> 00:22:54


00:22:55--> 00:22:56


00:22:57--> 00:23:06

these are gifts, we have no right to be proud of, because it's really not a result of our own efforts. It is what the login

00:23:09--> 00:23:20

and this is why Allah says that the best among us, to Allah is the one who fears a lot.

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

This is a result of individual striving.

00:23:27--> 00:23:35

This is what makes a man superior to another man, this is real superiority, one fears along

00:23:37--> 00:23:39

the lobby as possible,

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

the most noble of you to alarm is the one.

00:23:46--> 00:23:47


00:23:48--> 00:23:50

this policy

00:23:51--> 00:23:56

or this mobility is known only to Allah.

00:23:57--> 00:23:58

This is why the problems are

00:24:00--> 00:24:05

presented with an image. You know, he has said a taco how

00:24:06--> 00:24:10

tough was the fear of the lies here pointing to his hearts.

00:24:11--> 00:24:12

Nobody knows.

00:24:14--> 00:24:20

One of us can judge who has taqwa and who does not. Ultimately,

00:24:21--> 00:24:28

we have been given certain signs by which we may judge on the outside.

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

If a person is not going to the masjid

00:24:33--> 00:24:45

he doesn't find you can conclude that the man has no taqwa of God, or whatever we are so small, but motivating him to do anything you want who is always,

00:24:46--> 00:24:47

always fasting.

00:24:48--> 00:24:51

We can conclude that this man has

00:24:53--> 00:24:55

no power supply

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

and you

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

Some people like to prey on this idea of

00:25:06--> 00:25:07

your Eman becoming

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

a judge whose Eman is complete.

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

We're who we are

00:25:21--> 00:25:24

judging the level of somebody.

00:25:26--> 00:25:27

This is why

00:25:29--> 00:25:30

after the battle

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


00:25:34--> 00:25:39

I was walking with some of the companions past people who have died during the battle,

00:25:41--> 00:25:44

and they would say so and so calling up again. So also the

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


00:25:48--> 00:25:51

the margin, the margin, nothing.

00:25:52--> 00:25:57

So finally they said, they said their first one was said about the progress and said no.

00:25:58--> 00:25:59

I saw him

00:26:00--> 00:26:05

in the Hellfire wearing a cloak, from the spoils that he stole.

00:26:07--> 00:26:12

Is he gay? The compiler was judging from the fact that this man fought,

00:26:13--> 00:26:20

and that the possible that he was imagine having the highest levels of football was guaranteed.

00:26:21--> 00:26:31

But he said, No, he will be in the Hellfire, wearing the clothes from the spoils that he stole. In other words, he was there fighting not

00:26:32--> 00:26:37

to raise last word, above all, because this is the

00:26:38--> 00:26:45

jihad, when one fights to keep a last word uppermost. He was fighting for the spoils

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

why he could get out of it.

00:26:51--> 00:26:52

So his intention,

00:26:55--> 00:27:01

destroy any value that he would have gotten from dying in the past.

00:27:05--> 00:27:18

So this is all pointing to us. pointing out that there is no means of determining truly, who are close to Allah.

00:27:19--> 00:27:21

Now, a lot has said in the Koran,

00:27:26--> 00:27:29

about his close friends,

00:27:30--> 00:27:30

how we are

00:27:31--> 00:27:39

and how we are, is a term which Muslims have taken to be equivalent to

00:27:40--> 00:27:46

most Christians and the others, they have a hierarchy of individuals whom they call things.

00:27:47--> 00:28:00

People they feel are on the highest levels of taqwa and being closest to God. So Christians, especially the Catholics, will direct the prayers to these individuals.

00:28:04--> 00:28:07

Not to be outdone, because they're always in competition with

00:28:08--> 00:28:12

Christians, so they feel like they have a Christmas

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

celebration for the birth of Jesus Well,

00:28:17--> 00:28:19

you better than Christians,

00:28:20--> 00:28:21

the celebration of the birth of

00:28:23--> 00:28:23

a call most

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

Christians have these beads, called rosaries. They used to count out their own

00:28:34--> 00:28:39

Muslims, they don't want to get everybody get ahead of us, we have to have some DS, we call them the cookies.

00:28:41--> 00:28:42


00:28:46--> 00:29:01

he said that you will follow the waves of the people before you inside by foot, so much so that if they enter a lizard school, you know, the old and the lizard things in the ground, you go in after them.

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

And they ask, Are you referring to the present and the tools? He said, Well,

00:29:08--> 00:29:09

it's normal

00:29:10--> 00:29:14

to imitate them, I'm sure we have.

00:29:16--> 00:29:18

So in this issue of the states,

00:29:21--> 00:29:21


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


00:29:24--> 00:29:25

have these hands of

00:29:26--> 00:29:39

people who have because of the law, the DC level. So they have set up a hierarchy of so called scenes, and they've given them the Islamic terminology of alia. No,

00:29:41--> 00:29:45

Allah has said who is Alia

00:29:46--> 00:29:47

he is explained to us

00:29:50--> 00:29:58

who they are. And the third one he actually means a person who is a close friends

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

He has a number of other means to the close well, relative to these terms.

00:30:08--> 00:30:09

But the one which

00:30:11--> 00:30:11

was most

00:30:13--> 00:30:14

relevant to us

00:30:16--> 00:30:22

is the resonance of losses in our in Olia. In

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

the laws, how we

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

are those with top law.

00:30:34--> 00:30:36

But most people

00:30:39--> 00:30:43

you know if you have a person who believes in

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

why is it

00:30:49--> 00:30:50

that you believe that this person is

00:30:52--> 00:31:05

because he did this miracle. You know when he dies and the people went to his grave, the water that they had starts to melt in the north, you know, this woman went, they couldn't have babies and they went to,

00:31:06--> 00:31:10

you know, they got pregnant, all these kind of all these miracles.

00:31:11--> 00:31:15

This is how people determine who is the only admissions.

00:31:17--> 00:31:18

But a law says

00:31:21--> 00:31:22

those who have

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

what most people don't realize

00:31:29--> 00:31:36

they don't realize that the two criteria for what they call wilaya or

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

closest to God is that

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

a law says,

00:31:51--> 00:31:55

Allah isn't long enough, hopefully you will

00:31:58--> 00:31:59

know, what can we

00:32:01--> 00:32:08

do? certainly no fear nor grief, shall overcome the fear of Allah along

00:32:09--> 00:32:11

those who believe and have

00:32:14--> 00:32:18

my space who the only those who believe and have

00:32:22--> 00:32:25

and elsewhere sort of alive said

00:32:28--> 00:32:31

that he is a way of those who believe.

00:32:34--> 00:32:44

So, this seldom, so I say this very important for us to leave the bar, because people need to know.

00:32:45--> 00:32:53

But if they don't need to find that they will just follow the traditions of their parents, their grandparents, their great grandparents, which is, you know,

00:32:54--> 00:32:58

worshipping these saints, so called

00:33:02--> 00:33:06

any beaver can be a one

00:33:08--> 00:33:10

on two leavers are

00:33:17--> 00:33:19

those who truly believe in the law.

00:33:20--> 00:33:25

Living by that belief, they become different.

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

This is

00:33:31--> 00:33:32

what the law says.

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

Most people don't realize that.

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


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


00:33:49--> 00:33:50

like to insist

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

that, in fact, we are

00:33:56--> 00:33:56


00:33:58--> 00:34:03

we are only asking them to

00:34:04--> 00:34:05

ask a lot for us.

00:34:07--> 00:34:18

Don't mess this up. We're not saying to these people, because Sir, you have some people who are facing that direct, right? This is obvious. You know, something bad happens. They call us yeah.

00:34:22--> 00:34:24

This is clear, shoot.

00:34:25--> 00:34:26

Nobody can tell you this.

00:34:30--> 00:34:33

But then you have others who are saying no, we're not doing this. We understand.

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

No, we are asking these people.

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


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

as to how we're

00:34:47--> 00:34:50

calling on anyone in worship,

00:34:51--> 00:34:53

is worship.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

Any form of anyone

00:35:01--> 00:35:08

First of all is dead, you call on them to do anything for you to speak to a lawyer or whatever.

00:35:15--> 00:35:21

So, that cannot be used to justify calling on others besides

00:35:23--> 00:35:25

Now, what is the philosophy,

00:35:26--> 00:35:29

which is the basis of

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

what is known as mysticism, or Sufism,

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

which is widespread amongst most people,

00:35:48--> 00:35:49

the idea

00:35:50--> 00:35:56

that it is possible to become one with a law,

00:35:57--> 00:35:58


00:36:01--> 00:36:06

this is the vast majority of the branches of Sufism. Now,

00:36:07--> 00:36:10

in a sense is like Christianity is that,

00:36:12--> 00:36:16

if you say Christians believe

00:36:17--> 00:36:18


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

God has three parts, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, you run into problems, because you find something like the job is

00:36:31--> 00:36:31


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

we all needed to believe that

00:36:39--> 00:36:43

it was God the Father and there is the created son

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


00:36:49--> 00:36:53

and you will find other branches will hold for example, the

00:36:54--> 00:36:55


00:36:56--> 00:37:03

Orthodox to Greek Orthodox day role that the Father is greater than the son not equal.

00:37:04--> 00:37:10

So, you have a variety of different versions of this belief. So,

00:37:11--> 00:37:18

you may take on one principle which seems to be the common principle you have always some exceptions. Similarly,

00:37:20--> 00:37:27

there is a general belief that the majority rule but then you have some exceptions, we don't necessarily all the practice.

00:37:29--> 00:37:34

So, what I'm talking about is the general teaching.

00:37:36--> 00:37:37

This general teaching

00:37:39--> 00:37:47

is based on the concept that each and every one of us has within him

00:37:48--> 00:37:49

a portion of

00:37:52--> 00:37:52

our soul

00:37:54--> 00:37:56

they believe is divine.

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

To support this idea, if you go to the blog, you will find versus in the climb were in a losses

00:38:11--> 00:38:14

in reference to profits Adam,

00:38:17--> 00:38:18

whenever happy

00:38:20--> 00:38:26

then he Alor fascist Adam, and blue in him from his spirit

00:38:29--> 00:38:35

a lot when he created Adam blue, a portion of his spirits into Adam.

00:38:37--> 00:38:47

And this spirit had his descendants in Versailles, each and every one within him, a force of spirits inherited from Adam.

00:38:50--> 00:39:03

And the goal of every human being, the real truth is to make that person which is divine within him, reunites with the divine.

00:39:07--> 00:39:08

sounds beautiful.

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

When we individually you find the same teaching.

00:39:16--> 00:39:18

The Hindus believe that

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


00:39:21--> 00:39:26

human soul is a part of the universal soul

00:39:28--> 00:39:47

which was released in the person ends his cycles of rebirth. When he reaches a state of Nirvana. He no longer is reborn, then that divine soul inside of itself reunites with universal soul.

00:39:52--> 00:39:53

Some people will argue well,

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

just because they do believe it doesn't mean that it's wrong for us to be this. No. This is

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

evidence that this was

00:40:05--> 00:40:11

because there is amongst Hinduism, you know, it is from the teachings of the prophets that mentioned Hindus.

00:40:13--> 00:40:16

And this confirms the truth of ours.

00:40:17--> 00:40:17


00:40:19--> 00:40:20

in fact, this is not

00:40:22--> 00:40:23


00:40:25--> 00:40:27

the spirit itself

00:40:28--> 00:40:36

is something which a law creates a law is not a spirit, nor does he have a spirit.

00:40:38--> 00:40:41

When the prophet SAW Selim was questioned about the spirits,

00:40:46--> 00:40:50

and he asked a lot, a lot of fun things to say to them.

00:40:57--> 00:41:00

Spirit is found my lord's command,

00:41:02--> 00:41:04

it is by my lord's command.

00:41:06--> 00:41:10

A law says, a lot of wishes, they seem to be

00:41:11--> 00:41:12

the only orders

00:41:13--> 00:41:13


00:41:15--> 00:41:17

his command is B, and

00:41:19--> 00:41:21

the spirits is created.

00:41:23--> 00:41:26

Alive, nothing spirits, nor does he have.

00:41:28--> 00:41:29

In fact,

00:41:30--> 00:41:36

you find when you read to the wind, and as I said, you have to read throughout the world

00:41:37--> 00:41:38

to get

00:41:39--> 00:41:40

the correct picture

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


00:41:44--> 00:41:46

the Islamic concepts.

00:41:49--> 00:41:54

Because if you take a verse out of context, then

00:41:55--> 00:41:59

the context of the rest of the crime, you can get other meanings.

00:42:02--> 00:42:04

A lot of referrals throughout the crime.

00:42:05--> 00:42:07

For a number of things as being here.

00:42:14--> 00:42:15

Do we believe

00:42:16--> 00:42:27

anywhere that a law says this is his, and this literally means that it is him. For example, when a law says, This is in reference,

00:42:28--> 00:42:30

to profit following sentence,

00:42:31--> 00:42:33

and the Campbell was the same

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

as he

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


00:42:38--> 00:42:39


00:42:40--> 00:42:52

out in that this is a lot of capital, since he was assigned, to allow us to graze and a lot of Earth, you have in this verse, Now for too long,

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

a lot of capital

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


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

allows her

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

to use that as long as

00:43:10--> 00:43:10

we're alive

00:43:12--> 00:43:21

to the masjid on the earth has been, we used to lock the houses of a lot, either the law or the house. He lives in a house.

00:43:26--> 00:43:30

So we refer to certain aspects of his creation as being

00:43:34--> 00:43:49

mean, in the literal sense hidden in the sense that it is actually part of him. There are certain times when you refer to something as being used, which refers to a positive in the sense would allow, for example, to use mercy.

00:43:51--> 00:43:53

It is his mercy.

00:43:54--> 00:44:06

But it's just like yourself, when you talk about my hand that my shirts, these two things have two different meanings. In both cases, you're saying like my hand is my shirt,

00:44:07--> 00:44:15

my hand is something which is a part of you, my shirt is something which you apply that you put on you can say law is not important.

00:44:18--> 00:44:32

So when we find that a law refers to certain things, in requirements being used, we have to put it in one of these categories as something which actually is usually a part of

00:44:33--> 00:44:37

something from him or something which is from his creation.

00:44:40--> 00:44:47

And we find that a lot we refer to things that efficiently is as a means of honoring.

00:44:48--> 00:44:55

Because all houses on Earth are laws in the sense that he is the one who gave man the means and the materials to make these

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

materials and the intelligence there is

00:45:02--> 00:45:06

But the houses in which he is worshipped a lot of different diseases is

00:45:07--> 00:45:18

because they are more 100 He has made them in honor over the rest of the houses by calling them because he is worshipped

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


00:45:23--> 00:45:26

gamma which was sent as a miracle, the prophet SAW It

00:45:27--> 00:45:30

is one of us department explains,

00:45:34--> 00:45:37

which is found in the 40s

00:45:42--> 00:45:43

the purpose of explaining

00:45:44--> 00:45:52

the value your creation is combined with your mother's womb for 14 days in the form of an oily fluid,

00:45:53--> 00:45:56

then each light quartz raised similar period.

00:45:57--> 00:46:01

And as they come for flesh, or another scenario,

00:46:02--> 00:46:07

then an angel is sent to him to blow the spirit into

00:46:09--> 00:46:14

this is the process by which the spirit answers the body,

00:46:15--> 00:46:16

an angel

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

blows the spirit actually into the body.

00:46:23--> 00:46:27

But some person says but the law says that he blew the Spirit

00:46:28--> 00:46:29

and He blew the spirit.

00:46:31--> 00:46:35

Well, again, if we look through the bar,

00:46:36--> 00:46:39

we find that a law says

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

we created you and whatever you do, will love

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

you, whatever you

00:46:54--> 00:46:55

when I came to LA,

00:46:57--> 00:47:00

it was not used at through when it was alone.

00:47:02--> 00:47:04

This is in reference to the Battle of matter

00:47:05--> 00:47:11

in which when the enemy was lined up on the horizon, the problem was picked up by an

00:47:15--> 00:47:17

enemy after the battle.

00:47:18--> 00:47:24

They mentioned that you know before the Battle of battle, all of a sudden we found justify

00:47:29--> 00:47:29


00:47:31--> 00:47:35

a lot called the dust was supposed

00:47:36--> 00:47:40

to reach the eyes of the enemy that was hundreds of yards away.

00:47:42--> 00:47:43

This is a miracle.

00:47:45--> 00:47:51

So a lot of said it wasn't you that you but how long

00:47:57--> 00:47:58

it was in fact.

00:48:01--> 00:48:07

So a lot of we refer to certain things as being his his dream

00:48:09--> 00:48:13

because of the special status that it holds.

00:48:14--> 00:48:20

This entrance of the spirit into Adam is special because Adam was without father and

00:48:22--> 00:48:38

he was the first man to enter into the spirit into Isa was special because this was a tiny miracle. He was born without the Father. So along the first to be in both of these occasions as him blowing.

00:48:42--> 00:48:47

And actually if we read on concerning the

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

story of very

00:48:53--> 00:48:54

late how

00:48:55--> 00:49:05

Fatima ha ha basan Samia. So we sent to her Our spirits who took the appearance of a well formed

00:49:06--> 00:49:14

a lot of friends to gibreel the angel as our spirits has his spirit.

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

But in fact it was.

00:49:20--> 00:49:23

Allah uses the term spirits

00:49:25--> 00:49:25

in reference to

00:49:27--> 00:49:29

our spirit to honor

00:49:30--> 00:49:33

gibreel amongst angels.

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


00:49:37--> 00:49:45

when we look at these facts together, we can only conclude that the Spirit is created by

00:49:48--> 00:49:56

the angels put it into Adam and into every human being when he reaches a certain stage of human development.

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

It is a human spirit,

00:50:04--> 00:50:04

it will

00:50:06--> 00:50:08

come to an end does it have a beginning?

00:50:09--> 00:50:11

allies without meaning

00:50:14--> 00:50:20

that goods cannot unite with a law, because it is finite, human

00:50:21--> 00:50:23

olara is infinite.

00:50:27--> 00:50:33

So, the true purpose and striving of man is not to become one with God,

00:50:34--> 00:50:35


00:50:36--> 00:50:37

to worship

00:50:39--> 00:50:41

as completely as

00:50:48--> 00:50:57

I have not created our mankind except for my worship, that is the central goal of human

00:50:58--> 00:51:02

humans to worship, not to become one.

00:51:03--> 00:51:08

Of course, you have, when you look into the hierarchy of saints,

00:51:10--> 00:51:14

you have an individual by the name of kolache,

00:51:15--> 00:51:16


00:51:20--> 00:51:23

was famous for the pronouncements I know

00:51:26--> 00:51:26

I am the

00:51:28--> 00:51:28

worst in the

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


00:51:32--> 00:51:34

A lot of we call ourselves up

00:51:36--> 00:51:40

with here is this man saying, I know who I am.

00:51:42--> 00:51:43

And when he said

00:51:45--> 00:51:52

he was tried by scholars is time and soul to return to give this up,

00:51:53--> 00:51:58

returns from his interviews, he stood up and he opened up his

00:51:59--> 00:52:04

his cloak and said, there is nothing inside this cloak except the law.

00:52:06--> 00:52:10

He was following the delusion

00:52:11--> 00:52:15

that men could become one with God.

00:52:17--> 00:52:23

And it should be looked at also that the origin of this

00:52:24--> 00:52:25


00:52:27--> 00:52:35

exists amongst Hinduism as it exists among Greek philosophy in the writings of Plato,

00:52:37--> 00:52:39

you will find references to this

00:52:44--> 00:52:46

literal mysticism

00:52:49--> 00:53:02

is defined as an experience of union with God. And we believe that man's main goal lies in seeking that union. This is how the most Christians often it's the basis of Christian mysticism.

00:53:03--> 00:53:05

And these ideas

00:53:06--> 00:53:08

are foreign to Islam.

00:53:09--> 00:53:11

They are concepts of

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


00:53:18--> 00:53:18


00:53:20--> 00:53:25

that anyone can carry our prayers to God was was died because of their

00:53:27--> 00:53:29

elevated status is unacceptable as

00:53:31--> 00:53:38

the people will people have assigned that saints we don't really know really what their status all year long.

00:53:41--> 00:53:42


00:53:43--> 00:53:46

the belief that

00:53:47--> 00:53:48

these people

00:53:50--> 00:54:01

because of their status, anything which is connected with them also carries the higher status, like people, you know, will say that if you go to the

00:54:03--> 00:54:07

person making prayer in the presence, not to the person,

00:54:08--> 00:54:09

not to the person

00:54:10--> 00:54:14

or even asking the person who doesn't pay in the present.

00:54:15--> 00:54:23

You see, this will make the value of the prayers more because the area of this person is blessed

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

to me

00:54:29--> 00:54:30

that we should not send out

00:54:32--> 00:54:36

any religious journey except to three places

00:54:41--> 00:54:45

where prayer there is worth 500 prayers elsewhere.

00:54:46--> 00:54:52

My massive where there were 1000 players

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

and that sort of harm where parents are worth 100,000

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


00:55:02--> 00:55:09

these three places, the value of prayer there is increased based on the statements of profit.

00:55:11--> 00:55:15

We do not have the right to say that further increase in

00:55:18--> 00:55:19

all the places are equal.

00:55:20--> 00:55:22

It doesn't matter is there

00:55:23--> 00:55:25

there is no more value of prayer there.

00:55:30--> 00:55:31

And then the,

00:55:33--> 00:55:34

the people ruled

00:55:35--> 00:55:38

that the area of the Kaaba called hidden

00:55:40--> 00:55:53

behind the Kaaba, there is a circular semi circular wall. It's a this is a Judas mine. They call it dismisses where he smiles and others the prophets were very, this is nonsense.

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

It is nonsense.

00:55:59--> 00:56:01

This area was a part of the top.

00:56:03--> 00:56:12

When the people were moving the Kaaba ran out of funds. During the time of the process alone, before he reached

00:56:13--> 00:56:14

out of funds in building it.

00:56:16--> 00:56:34

They stopped in the pubic shape. And they made it small barriers to indicate the remainder of the problem. This is why you don't make the walk through there. Because if you cut through there, then you're not taking too long. You're not going around the coffee was to the car.

00:56:36--> 00:56:37

This is why we have to go around

00:56:41--> 00:56:44

the name of cars in his mind is the name given by the people.

00:56:46--> 00:57:00

And the practice that you find the most people where when it rains, you'll see people going near the trough which is coming off the roof of the cabin collecting water bottles, containers.

00:57:01--> 00:57:04

sending the water back to the consensus only

00:57:05--> 00:57:07

came off the roof of the top

00:57:11--> 00:57:17

because anybody who sits there for a period of time you see the birds flying over, deprecating

00:57:20--> 00:57:29

The birds are flying over and deprecating. I know when I was in Canada before I came over here, you know people have come

00:57:31--> 00:57:32

Muslims in different parts of the world.

00:57:35--> 00:57:44

Special like forcefield which goes up from the Kaaba right up into the heavens to the cabinet and stuff like that the birds don't fly, fly around.

00:57:46--> 00:57:51

accepted because I had no knowledge when I first moved to the home run

00:57:52--> 00:57:55

for a while and Watson on it was

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

not only flying but definitely

00:58:02--> 00:58:03

so what is deep love.

00:58:09--> 00:58:15

You no longer wish you could call it what it was you can't be removed.

00:58:17--> 00:58:21

There are taking this water in the evening somehow

00:58:22--> 00:58:24

healing qualities.

00:58:25--> 00:58:29

in Medina, you find people doing the same thing.

00:58:33--> 00:58:36

And furthermore, when I was there studying

00:58:38--> 00:58:49

I observed that some people especially people from Pakistan, were coming in buying Bibles like perfume bottles, empty ones.

00:58:55--> 00:59:04

I have several You know, there are some people who are in charge of cleaning the house and I should say we're

00:59:05--> 00:59:17

covered by a wall around it. And then there's a green cloth over it. So when you go there and look through the brass bars on this piece of cloth anyway.

00:59:19--> 00:59:23

at certain times of the year those people who look after the ballot

00:59:24--> 00:59:25

go inside there

00:59:28--> 00:59:30

and they will dust off the green

00:59:33--> 00:59:38

and then this is what they put in the Bible and the people will come from India and Pakistan

00:59:43--> 00:59:43

brushed off

00:59:45--> 00:59:46

the clouds

00:59:48--> 00:59:51

believing that that now as a person dies

00:59:54--> 00:59:54

person before you

01:00:05--> 01:00:06

When people will be

01:00:07--> 01:00:08

the bearer of

01:00:10--> 01:00:14

their somehow everything which is connected to him in any way now carries

01:00:18--> 01:00:18


01:00:20--> 01:00:27

you know in India and Pakistan and also turkey you know different villages and so, they will have

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


01:00:31--> 01:00:35

container small container which they will note on certain occasions

01:00:37--> 01:00:42

and images they will have it here which they claimed the year from the end of the

01:00:44--> 01:00:46

claims hearing who grows they will cut off

01:00:48--> 01:00:49

and other people will have this hearing

01:00:51--> 01:00:56

and people will touch this thing just to get the team here

01:00:58--> 01:01:05

and in the museum in surfeasy Topkapi Museum in Turkey, they have also what they claim to be the food

01:01:07--> 01:01:09

that was knocked out during the bathroom

01:01:11--> 01:01:13

and in Morocco the opposite

01:01:15--> 01:01:18

and if you go around the Muslim world, you find the various cases out there

01:01:19--> 01:01:20

but the only last one

01:01:22--> 01:01:25

around you'll find how to make a hole

01:01:28--> 01:01:30

and people again attributing special

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

qualities quality

01:01:34--> 01:01:35

This is what the most important

01:01:36--> 01:01:38

become the most important thing

01:01:39--> 01:01:43

you find articles where a person finds a fish with a large

01:01:45--> 01:01:46


01:01:48--> 01:01:48

or he

01:01:50--> 01:02:00

right if you had one guy in Turkey suppose a surgeon whatever he said that inside of you know the heart instead of sitting ventricle there is a lot

01:02:02--> 01:02:21

there was one paper that circulating around here at about a year ago, they had they said inside the trachea, you know, the, the, the, the windpipe, you know, it's kind of air, the air that you breathe, is carried into the lungs, right? the trachea, they said wisdom is like

01:02:24--> 01:02:25

all nonsense.

01:02:27--> 01:02:28


01:02:29--> 01:02:46

This is what becomes a sign of Islam Islam have lost so much touch with Islam, that they're now grabbing on to any little thing which will appear to be, you know, miraculous, but now what happens when a Christian finds a fish with a Cropper

01:02:48--> 01:02:55

or another Christianity You know, he opens up some organ of the body and shows you how this organ formed across it. Then what

01:02:56--> 01:02:56

what do we

01:02:58--> 01:02:58

what do we have?

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

This is this is not

01:03:07--> 01:03:07

this is not

01:03:10--> 01:03:21

this is the ignorance of Muslims who have lost touch with Islam. They now put all of their emphasis on things which in fact have nothing to do with this at all.

01:03:27--> 01:03:27


01:03:31--> 01:03:33

what is the last time with

01:03:38--> 01:03:39

continue with the questions?

01:03:40--> 01:03:41

So I don't know.

01:03:42--> 01:03:43


01:03:47--> 01:03:47


01:03:53--> 01:03:54

of the questions,

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


01:03:58--> 01:03:59

topic of today's

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


01:04:14--> 01:04:19

You're on your part to ask until you have understood.

01:04:21--> 01:04:24

So please do not feel shy to ask

01:04:25--> 01:04:36

questions on. First we'll deal with questions concerning the topic of the presentation. If there are no questions and inshallah we can go on to general questions.

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


01:05:11--> 01:05:11

big money.

01:05:32--> 01:05:33


01:05:34--> 01:05:36

as I suggested distracting points,

01:05:37--> 01:05:39

getting people back to

01:05:40--> 01:05:44

you, because you're dealing with something which has become

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


01:05:47--> 01:06:01

norm in the society. So much so that anyone who speaks out against it or stands up against it is looked at as being a deviant. A person who was born a straight

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

usually, because people are labeled labeled wahabis. No, this is the common pattern.

01:06:10--> 01:06:44

So, it means that such problems one cannot tackle directly, unless it is, you know, within a family, your own your parents or your children or your relatives who may listen to you. So, you can tell them directly, you can try to speak to them very directly. However, beyond those people who will listen, you have to try to educate them, by bringing them back to the foundations of Islam.

01:06:46--> 01:06:49

I spoke about the bond, this is fundamental.

01:06:50--> 01:06:58

If you can bring people back to the foundations of Islam by having them for example,

01:06:59--> 01:07:21

you know, read the Bible in translation, or you have a circle where you are just reading the Koran explaining, we use this as a means because nobody is going to fight over the uses as a means to get people to understand what the law is saying, because all of us have spoken today against these ideas

01:07:22--> 01:07:25

from the lawyer.

01:07:26--> 01:07:32

But people as I said, have been cut off. And then of course, as he tried to bring them to his use

01:07:34--> 01:07:42

of departments. In our salon official sessions, we'll be looking at detail and we can see that this is the other

01:07:43--> 01:07:55

important fundamental that the people have to come back to, because a lot of them said no to Pico hombre ambrane intersec from being violent to the governor, and left to him.

01:07:57--> 01:08:00

If you hold on to them firmly, you will never be

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


01:08:04--> 01:08:04

Look over the last

01:08:06--> 01:08:07

two are inseparable

01:08:08--> 01:08:10

we cannot say we're only going to fall apart.

01:08:12--> 01:08:13

To understand the one we

01:08:15--> 01:08:21

can't separate them. A lot of revealed the final message of Islam through the core is Emerson,

01:08:23--> 01:08:46

we have to recognize that both are sources of Revelation. So you have to bring the people back to the sources. When the people can seek knowledge and benefits from the sources then you can now introduce the ideas. And this will be quicker than the others because they have respect for the client, which comes from

01:08:47--> 01:08:48

reading it.

01:08:50--> 01:09:00

See, what happens is that people's respect for the crime is in mutual before they need the crime, they will defend the head on the chest and all these different things.

01:09:02--> 01:09:08

If the wind falls on the ground, I mean it's like a grave sin I was just with one group where people you know, one one

01:09:10--> 01:09:13

grand fell on the ground. So the other person said, Oh, you're gonna have to give some money and

01:09:15--> 01:09:19

I said well, what was that? He said, Well, you know our teacher

01:09:21--> 01:09:25

had told them that the waterfalls in the ground you should get some

01:09:29--> 01:09:29

these are the most

01:09:31--> 01:09:35

expensive. You know, when you are giving somebody says that this happened.

01:09:36--> 01:09:46

It means you have done something wrong. He has done he says he is wrong. Truly, if you do something wrong, you try to do a good deed so I thought that he would be

01:09:47--> 01:09:49

a principal. But no.

01:09:52--> 01:09:53

Have you ever said

01:09:55--> 01:09:56

that you have to do a

01:09:57--> 01:09:58


01:09:59--> 01:09:59

because you don't care?

01:10:00--> 01:10:06

does not want to fall on the ground. It's not your intent. If a person throws the crime in the ground, yes.

01:10:08--> 01:10:15

That he will, because he's intentionally hidden requirements on his on the events in the car.

01:10:23--> 01:10:25

To use your mind, if people come in

01:10:29--> 01:10:30

to discuss

01:10:31--> 01:10:38

this one thing, you know, because what happens is that people are so involved in cultural practices in how you know what Islam

01:10:43--> 01:11:08

is today to see, paying for the covering, putting it in high places, even when I was in Philippines last year was in a conference in Manila. And I met one brother conference in from Taiwan. And he was saying, you know, that slot guys spending their graduates, but he said it was a family, they're well known, well established.

01:11:11--> 01:11:14

When you see their practices, is so good.

01:11:16--> 01:11:17

But they call themselves

01:11:20--> 01:11:22

they have the Quran

01:11:23--> 01:11:28

in a cloth container hanging from the ceiling.

01:11:29--> 01:11:34

And they go in one room, they go into the burdens, and they feel

01:11:36--> 01:11:36


01:11:38--> 01:11:44

Now, he said, he tried to find out where does it come from? How do they explain? He found out?

01:11:45--> 01:11:52

What happened is that a family from the mainland, you know, when multitone is getting him to go over

01:11:54--> 01:11:59

silenx, Chase Shang chi secondsas out and they went to Taiwan.

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

Among them were Muslim family.

01:12:03--> 01:12:06

One family, they came, they settled there in

01:12:08--> 01:12:09

Taiwan, and

01:12:10--> 01:12:16

demand, you know, when his family he, he was all alone. And

01:12:17--> 01:12:25

what do you have to emphasize his children is putting the Koran in a high place that he didn't, couldn't meet

01:12:26--> 01:12:33

him, even his knowledge of Islam was just a few ritual that he had emphasized that whatever you do,

01:12:39--> 01:12:42

around the children, he followed what he told them.

01:12:46--> 01:13:05

And around them, they're growing up around Buddhists, all the others are Buddhist, you know, and their form of worship is, you know, brand new within meditation type worship. So this is the kind of worship that they picked up from going to school and everything. And all they could remember this Keep in mind, the high priest

01:13:06--> 01:13:07

inside of this class,

01:13:08--> 01:13:10

and they hung it from the ceiling.

01:13:13--> 01:13:17

And the Muslims now, you know, people are disarming spreading coming to Islam.

01:13:19--> 01:13:20

No, there was

01:13:21--> 01:13:25

no, no, you just became what's your contract, we have

01:13:29--> 01:13:30

a big problem,

01:13:31--> 01:13:34

big problem, people have been divorced from.

01:13:36--> 01:13:42

So, this is, I would say, is the most important you know, thrust that should be

01:13:43--> 01:13:48

come from to try to re educate people by bringing them back to the bar.

01:13:49--> 01:13:51

And back to

01:13:52--> 01:13:58

the once they start to set the crime as a loss is a loss of

01:14:01--> 01:14:11

telephone susceptibility. If you love or not, then follow me and a lot of us because everybody wants to be loved by a lot.

01:14:12--> 01:14:13

So there is a

01:14:14--> 01:14:16

respectful honor, the

01:14:17--> 01:14:18

respect and honor

01:14:20--> 01:14:25

is in obedience. This is where the respective obedience

01:14:27--> 01:14:30

as required and disobeying what the law says.

01:14:35--> 01:14:39

This respect, you get the crime, and you go again, so the law says

01:14:40--> 01:14:42

this is disrespectful.

01:14:43--> 01:14:53

This is what the people have to be educated. If they can come to that understanding, again, to Ireland back to the sooner then inshallah we can start.

01:14:55--> 01:14:59

But it won't stop overnight. And most people who are trying to go down

01:15:00--> 01:15:06

There ain't no way they're doing it and tried to say people don't do this, this ship, they've lost their lives, matters. And

01:15:09--> 01:15:12

we need some people to go and do this from time to time.

01:15:13--> 01:15:18

But the way to make a change, because this thing happened over a period of time,

01:15:19--> 01:15:29

it didn't happen overnight. The way to change this is to do it, you're building and establishing a new foundation based on

01:15:32--> 01:15:36

educate people to this new foundation, then we can make change.

01:15:53--> 01:15:54

You would like to know the

01:15:56--> 01:15:57


01:15:58--> 01:15:59

for forming

01:16:10--> 01:16:11


01:16:31--> 01:16:36

Way, yes, this is, you know, this is a part of the program. But

01:16:38--> 01:16:45

some of the things were to go through something of stuff here and something of IDs and solar

01:16:49--> 01:16:57

is to hire Lancelot. So this is what I intended to do what I mean,

01:16:58--> 01:17:02

is some way along the night, you know, so if

01:17:03--> 01:17:28

you have specific questions on specific things, like the Nia position of the hand, right, I can answer that to the specific question, you know, after, right? So is there a specific point that that we can touch them, but we'll go to the salon, as a rule included so many things concerning people doing all kinds of, you know, which have nothing to do with

01:17:29--> 01:17:39

like cultural practices from, you know, various traditions, etc. So, there's a whole set of things that need to be clarified, we need to go back and see what what it is

01:17:40--> 01:17:46

teach concerning Sahara, and salon, try to do that as a whole. But

01:17:48--> 01:18:00

if we finish the questions concerning the session today, then we can touch on these two points, for example, that you asked about the intention and position of the hand and

01:18:05--> 01:18:06

we are

01:18:07--> 01:18:13

trying to do the one thing, you know, then we will be doing a session on.

01:18:14--> 01:18:27

Okay, okay, what we can do them, we can see that a minute is basically the last session on coffee. So the next session will be going on to the forehand.

01:18:29--> 01:18:38

So if this is the consensus of the people here, that they would like to skip the top tier, and

01:18:39--> 01:19:01

heavy, so now and go directly to follow up, which means doing Sahara and follow it, this is the consensus, and you can do it. I mean, I'm not following the rigid pattern. So those who are in favor of skipping tafsir and IDs

01:19:02--> 01:19:10

for the president, and going directly to salop. In our next session, please raise your hand

01:19:17--> 01:19:32

possibility that we want to put this ally in in the middle. You know, we can do this a lot then continue on with the factors as I was originally following. But as I said, it's not rigid. If you prefer to go directly to someone after this session was complete.

01:19:34--> 01:19:36

Then we can do some and then come back to that.

01:19:39--> 01:19:40

So those in favor of

01:19:42--> 01:19:47

introduce a beginning slot in the next session. Please raise your hand.

01:19:50--> 01:19:50

Don't be shy.

01:19:52--> 01:19:53

Don't be shy.

01:19:57--> 01:19:57

did not

01:19:59--> 01:19:59

follow step by step.

01:20:00--> 01:20:09

The thing is, I mean, I know, I mean, you're all seeing the events taking place around this event, when I get plugged in a couple more sessions that people will be backing up and leaving

01:20:11--> 01:20:14

the law, you know, more practical?

01:20:28--> 01:20:34

No, no, we do understand this is no problem, you know, we will go back to see because we will

01:20:35--> 01:20:39

touch on them from time to time as we're going through salon, but

01:20:41--> 01:20:44

it's no problem, we can probably cover this align,

01:20:45--> 01:20:48

align, say, two sessions, we can finish it off and then go back to

01:20:50--> 01:21:10

because I can understand the you know, your feeling in that salon is a very practical thing, because you're doing it right now, five times a day, and we'd be good to have that cleared up, right? Because it is the consensus in spite. Okay. So please, raise your hand those who are in favor of, you know, going to rely on the next session.

01:21:12--> 01:21:12

Okay, I think

01:21:17--> 01:21:20

that we shouldn't be so shy about

01:21:21--> 01:21:23

expressing your opinion, because in the beginning when I first

01:21:26--> 01:21:29

went out to the races and a couple others were you know,

01:21:40--> 01:21:41


01:21:47--> 01:21:48


01:21:49--> 01:21:50

v. Other

01:21:52--> 01:21:52


01:21:58--> 01:21:59

Okay, no problem.

01:22:11--> 01:22:24

Once again, this is hearsay, you have heard, you know, if you cite, then you talk about the fact witnesses hearsay, and some Islamic practice, it is not.

01:22:25--> 01:22:32

This is not this is not a part of Islamic practice, to swear on the ground, to swear by a law. Yes.

01:22:33--> 01:22:52

I mean, some people may say, Well, you know, because crime is the word of a law, swearing by the word of a lie is equivalent to swearing by a law. You know, and it is true in that general sense, but the idea of the practice of swearing on the Bible, this was not done by the proper fella nor by his companions.

01:22:54--> 01:23:03

It is not really part and parcel of Islamic practice, and particularly, of course, for anonymously to do so it would be nice.

01:23:07--> 01:23:08

You said you heard

01:23:21--> 01:23:21

you fit

01:23:23--> 01:23:23

any vision

01:23:26--> 01:23:27


01:23:30--> 01:23:30

the practice,

01:23:32--> 01:23:35

so that they can believe in one God

01:23:40--> 01:23:42

islamically speaking,

01:23:43--> 01:23:47

I do not believe that this is islamically handled.

01:23:48--> 01:23:54

And I would check myself to see whether in fact, it is different.

01:23:56--> 01:24:06

I mean, I just sounds so far out. I mean, I know there are things that happened here which an unnecessarily Islamic affords Islamic teachings.

01:24:07--> 01:24:17

But the court system, generally speaking, is quite firmly based in the Islamic tradition had the

01:24:18--> 01:24:19

cutting off the hand and

01:24:21--> 01:24:30

it's quite close to the that's why I find it to be very strange. I would check it a bit more thoroughly before but even if it is, so,

01:24:32--> 01:24:44

even if it is So, we can say islamically speaking, it is not from tradition. There is no support from it in the center, or the

01:24:47--> 01:24:49

support from or from the fact that

01:24:50--> 01:24:58

he they've dealt with non Muslims and I don't recall reading anything where they were probably the non Muslim swearing by a law or by

01:25:16--> 01:25:18

He has quite a bit in for us to do so

01:25:19--> 01:25:23

credited for us to make this picture informative was the kingdom.

01:25:25--> 01:25:25

You know,

01:25:27--> 01:25:33

this is a general principle in Islam, I mean, if you prohibit the means to a thing you must be private in that sense

01:25:41--> 01:25:42

a painting

01:25:44--> 01:25:52

photograph is slightly different than the difference of opinion concerning photograph. Now, some with a body of scholars

01:25:53--> 01:25:58

that the photograph is the modern version of

01:26:00--> 01:26:07

painting, it's modern painting, you know, like the computer, you use the buttons now, and you can do

01:26:08--> 01:26:17

this is the modern version. So, if the end result is the same, that you will have an image of a human being or an animal,

01:26:18--> 01:26:23

the mean doesn't change the law concerning the results

01:26:27--> 01:26:36

and the same principle. So, those people who analyze the situation according to that, they will that photograph are

01:26:39--> 01:26:41

taking, keeping.

01:26:44--> 01:26:54

Some scholars also hold that the photograph is not the same as the painting and the carving.

01:26:56--> 01:27:14

Because the painting and the carving is a direct action of human and in trying to create an image which is like something which Allah has created. whereas in the case of the photograph, lighting image in the mirror,

01:27:15--> 01:27:17

you are capturing the light

01:27:18--> 01:27:34

of something which actually exists, not something you are creating, what it is that you're catching it in the mirror and holding that image. Okay? So they argue that, no, it is not, however, even though to say that,

01:27:35--> 01:27:53

they also say that for you to hang it on your wall, it's one thing for you to keep it in the album personal whatever, once you start to hang it on the wall, then now you are entering into the area of what he called me.

01:27:55--> 01:27:59

Or, you know, honoring and elevating.

01:28:00--> 01:28:12

Do you have a picture of this is my father, this is my grandfather, and this is my it becomes You see, you're now coming towards those things feelings which are involved in the worship,

01:28:13--> 01:28:20

the image, worship of the image. So even those who say the photograph has nothing to say, they will

01:28:22--> 01:28:43

not allow the holding up of this photograph, placing of them blowing them up putting them out for people to see and to honor and to, you know, holding on reverence. They're saying no, that is bleeding into whether the photograph is the same or not. The way in which people are treating it now makes it

01:28:46--> 01:28:50

so they will disallow the hanging of these images.

01:29:18--> 01:29:19


01:29:26--> 01:29:27


01:29:28--> 01:29:30

if you stand up to meet them,

01:29:31--> 01:29:36

you stand to hug them to kiss them, whatever. This is one

01:29:37--> 01:29:38


01:29:39--> 01:29:44

you're sitting down to them, it's difficult to read and hug whilst you're sitting.

01:29:45--> 01:29:51

So you stand up to greet them and hug them not standing up in respect for them.

01:29:53--> 01:29:59

The respect is different because once you're saying you're standing in respect, then it becomes four

01:30:00--> 01:30:10

Given the promise ourselves, for babies companions for standing in respect to him, now, if it is forbidden for us to stand in respect to

01:30:12--> 01:30:13

t greater than our parents.

01:30:15--> 01:30:16

So what was the

01:30:20--> 01:30:22

so therefore it is not allowed to stand.

01:30:25--> 01:30:54

And once you say we're setting respect, as I pointed out the last time, the Malaysians will tell you that it is enough culture. For us when we greet our parents, that we kiss their knees, we bow and we kiss their knees, this is our respect for them. We don't need to worship them. This is only kissing in one respect, then the Buddhist people from Buddhist background they will come well in our culture, you know, we show respect for parents, by putting our head on their feet.

01:30:56--> 01:31:02

We've cut straight on their feet. But this we're not worshipping them, this is only respect to parents.

01:31:04--> 01:31:05

But these are

01:31:07--> 01:31:10

not supposed to be a penalty for our sinful

01:31:11--> 01:31:12


01:31:16--> 01:31:22

I understand that. Understand that intention is different, but to see, for example,

01:31:24--> 01:31:34

if a person commits dinner for a different intention, no, his intention is not to disappear long but yet he mentioned his intention to worship Allah, will that make committing zero okay?

01:31:37--> 01:31:41

I mean, truly, these are judged by their intention.

01:31:42--> 01:31:45

But what it means is that

01:31:46--> 01:31:49

if you do something halau

01:31:50--> 01:32:01

for the purpose of worshiping God, then you will be rewarded for that intention. But if you do something haram
