somebody and send them all those follow the process until the last date.
In this session,
I hope to be back another aspect of telehealth.
specifically in relationship to talk about that.
In the previous session,
the first session we looked at
various categories of
three categories, which we refer to as
either the smallest
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
specifically concerning attributes, which is referred to as an earloop, or is transcendent, being above his creation and part of his creation.
We also looked at
aspects which relate
in the case of people using astrology or astronomy,
fortune teller, etc, to give information about the future, and we showed how this destroys of heat, and how a Muslim
cannot be involved in such practices in any way.
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
directions, for travel on the sheep, as well as on land. In this session, we'll be looking at
an aspect of story that
relates to man's relationship to other human beings.
Were coming communication
with God is concerned.
One of the ways
Satan and the satanic forces
have succeeded in causing people who fundamentally believe in God,
and are seeking towards how they have managed to get these people astray,
is by having them worship
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.
And they believe that in worshiping God to Jesus, in fact, worshiping God.
Similarly, the Hindus
in worshipping statues, believe that they're worshipping God, Brahma, who is present within their statues. Now, what has happened amongst Muslims
they have been
divorced from the direct worship of God
through the introduction of intermediaries, that is,
people who will take
the prayers of one God, people pray to other people,
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.
In the the argument used by these people, is that we need intermediaries in this life.
To get things done,
we go to
someone who has influence what they call an RV, wash.
And this person will intervene on your behalf, talk to the higher officials so that you can get your affairs taken care of.
say that this is the same thing that we need to do in relationship to God because of the fact that we are
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.
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,
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.
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.
is that people, in spite of this very obvious information, which is
available as well, anybody who needs to cry, can see the noise. People have been
blinded to this reality.
from two ways.
Maybe more than I can think of two ways right now, one thing that
most people don't need to find.
What they do,
is they parrot the Arabic letters and sounds.
They learn how to
say the letters and the sounds, but they don't know what it says.
So the parents, the Arabic, believing that they're reading,
this is what has happened to a huge sector of the
they do not know what a lot is saying.
This is why
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.
this means that
there has to be a move amongst Muslims
to return to the
to the meaning and understanding of
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
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,
this is a necessary step which has to be taken.
until that, processes becomes complete, where the vast majority of
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
Arabic to help to develop
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
If we can get the masses back to the regular reading of the choir,
in their languages, then a lot of the problems of space
in the sense of their ignorance of their relationship to God, and their obligations will be solved.
problem area is that
that some people seem to be more righteous than others.
And because somebody seems to be more rational,
then people tend to depend on that.
This is a part of human nature. And actually, Islam encourages us to be among those
that we will be raised up
with those who are
the one who is your friend in his life, you'll be resurrected along with him.
So if you keep corrupt friends, then that's who you will be
be careful about who you take as your friend.
On another occasion,
said that we should choose a licensed companion.
Because the righteous companion is like the perfumers.
When you sit with him,
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
he will give you
a small volume.
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,
While she's busy with sparks are flying all the time.
So if you're at this company, Hi there, some sparks are going to go on your clothes and burn all your clothes,
or are you going to go away speaking of smoke,
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.
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.
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
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
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
righteousness, you know, improving life, you know, things that are positive.
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.
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
because your ears will be
witness for you or against you.
And you sit there while they continue to talk,
then you are also partly in sin.
So, we are obliged by Islam, righteous compassion. So now
we understand that there is a tendency
for people, to all those who appear to be more righteous
in special places.
when these people die,
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
departments I fell in love explained, this was very carefully
concerning certain people.
Where is the time of profit.
When these righteous people die,
to their followers,
and suggested to them to make statues and paintings of these righteous people, and support them in the places where they used to sit,
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
people and encourage them to do good, they didn't wish.
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
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.
That is how,
first insert among
One, it shows us why Islam is so opposed to imagery
whether human or animal,
when people choose objects of worship,
they most often choose those that are either in the form of human beings.
Either they are images of human beings,
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.
They don't usually leave just a stone by itself and it becomes an article
you know, they just they have no implements no means of discarding. So,
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.
At the same time,
we are also prohibited
any kind of help
from those guides.
When a man dies, he is cut off
except in the case of three things,
some good deeds that he has done
in the form of knowledge people benefit from
some sides he has made,
which was benefit continues,
we build an
orphanage or something like this,
or he has a righteous son, South, who prays for him
this way he can take,
but in terms of him benefiting those
who are living,
he enters into the state of Florida and he can no longer have any contact with him.
So, such a person, no matter how righteous they are, can do nothing for us.
Allah has favored some of us over others in a variety of ways.
But he should look to those below.
because it reminds us of Allah mercy.
Allah has said in the bond that he has favored. Some men over others in wealth
is famous some profits over others, though we look at the profits of one brother who
some of whom we favored over others, some loss to directly.
Prophet Musa spoke to
the gods, the revelation she received was direct Word of God, without the agency of the angel,
of miracles like in the case of Jesus,
in terms of closeness to God,
and this is something which the individual earns, is not merely a favor.
Because the favor was alive, give them the gift of wealth,
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
and this is why Allah says that the best among us, to Allah is the one who fears a lot.
This is a result of individual striving.
This is what makes a man superior to another man, this is real superiority, one fears along
the lobby as possible,
the most noble of you to alarm is the one.
or this mobility is known only to Allah.
This is why the problems are
presented with an image. You know, he has said a taco how
tough was the fear of the lies here pointing to his hearts.
One of us can judge who has taqwa and who does not. Ultimately,
we have been given certain signs by which we may judge on the outside.
If a person is not going to the masjid
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,
We can conclude that this man has
no power supply
Some people like to prey on this idea of
your Eman becoming
a judge whose Eman is complete.
We're who we are
judging the level of somebody.
This is why
after the battle
I was walking with some of the companions past people who have died during the battle,
and they would say so and so calling up again. So also the
the margin, the margin, nothing.
So finally they said, they said their first one was said about the progress and said no.
I saw him
in the Hellfire wearing a cloak, from the spoils that he stole.
Is he gay? The compiler was judging from the fact that this man fought,
and that the possible that he was imagine having the highest levels of football was guaranteed.
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
to raise last word, above all, because this is the
jihad, when one fights to keep a last word uppermost. He was fighting for the spoils
why he could get out of it.
So his intention,
destroy any value that he would have gotten from dying in the past.
So this is all pointing to us. pointing out that there is no means of determining truly, who are close to Allah.
Now, a lot has said in the Koran,
about his close friends,
how we are
and how we are, is a term which Muslims have taken to be equivalent to
most Christians and the others, they have a hierarchy of individuals whom they call things.
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.
Not to be outdone, because they're always in competition with
Christians, so they feel like they have a Christmas
celebration for the birth of Jesus Well,
you better than Christians,
the celebration of the birth of
a call most
Christians have these beads, called rosaries. They used to count out their own
Muslims, they don't want to get everybody get ahead of us, we have to have some DS, we call them the cookies.
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.
And they ask, Are you referring to the present and the tools? He said, Well,
to imitate them, I'm sure we have.
So in this issue of the states,
have these hands of
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,
Allah has said who is Alia
he is explained to us
who they are. And the third one he actually means a person who is a close friends
He has a number of other means to the close well, relative to these terms.
But the one which
relevant to us
is the resonance of losses in our in Olia. In
the laws, how we
are those with top law.
But most people
you know if you have a person who believes in
why is it
that you believe that this person is
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,
you know, they got pregnant, all these kind of all these miracles.
This is how people determine who is the only admissions.
But a law says
those who have
what most people don't realize
they don't realize that the two criteria for what they call wilaya or
closest to God is that
a law says,
Allah isn't long enough, hopefully you will
know, what can we
do? certainly no fear nor grief, shall overcome the fear of Allah along
those who believe and have
my space who the only those who believe and have
and elsewhere sort of alive said
that he is a way of those who believe.
So, this seldom, so I say this very important for us to leave the bar, because people need to know.
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,
worshipping these saints, so called
any beaver can be a one
on two leavers are
those who truly believe in the law.
Living by that belief, they become different.
what the law says.
Most people don't realize that.
like to insist
that, in fact, we are
we are only asking them to
ask a lot for us.
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.
This is clear, shoot.
Nobody can tell you this.
But then you have others who are saying no, we're not doing this. We understand.
No, we are asking these people.
as to how we're
calling on anyone in worship,
Any form of anyone
First of all is dead, you call on them to do anything for you to speak to a lawyer or whatever.
So, that cannot be used to justify calling on others besides
Now, what is the philosophy,
which is the basis of
what is known as mysticism, or Sufism,
which is widespread amongst most people,
that it is possible to become one with a law,
this is the vast majority of the branches of Sufism. Now,
in a sense is like Christianity is that,
if you say Christians believe
God has three parts, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, you run into problems, because you find something like the job is
we all needed to believe that
it was God the Father and there is the created son
and you will find other branches will hold for example, the
Orthodox to Greek Orthodox day role that the Father is greater than the son not equal.
So, you have a variety of different versions of this belief. So,
you may take on one principle which seems to be the common principle you have always some exceptions. Similarly,
there is a general belief that the majority rule but then you have some exceptions, we don't necessarily all the practice.
So, what I'm talking about is the general teaching.
This general teaching
is based on the concept that each and every one of us has within him
a portion of
they believe is divine.
To support this idea, if you go to the blog, you will find versus in the climb were in a losses
in reference to profits Adam,
then he Alor fascist Adam, and blue in him from his spirit
a lot when he created Adam blue, a portion of his spirits into Adam.
And this spirit had his descendants in Versailles, each and every one within him, a force of spirits inherited from Adam.
And the goal of every human being, the real truth is to make that person which is divine within him, reunites with the divine.
When we individually you find the same teaching.
The Hindus believe that
human soul is a part of the universal soul
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.
Some people will argue well,
just because they do believe it doesn't mean that it's wrong for us to be this. No. This is
evidence that this was
because there is amongst Hinduism, you know, it is from the teachings of the prophets that mentioned Hindus.
And this confirms the truth of ours.
in fact, this is not
the spirit itself
is something which a law creates a law is not a spirit, nor does he have a spirit.
When the prophet SAW Selim was questioned about the spirits,
and he asked a lot, a lot of fun things to say to them.
Spirit is found my lord's command,
it is by my lord's command.
A law says, a lot of wishes, they seem to be
the only orders
his command is B, and
the spirits is created.
Alive, nothing spirits, nor does he have.
you find when you read to the wind, and as I said, you have to read throughout the world
the correct picture
the Islamic concepts.
Because if you take a verse out of context, then
the context of the rest of the crime, you can get other meanings.
A lot of referrals throughout the crime.
For a number of things as being here.
Do we believe
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,
to profit following sentence,
and the Campbell was the same
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,
a lot of capital
to use that as long as
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.
So we refer to certain aspects of his creation as being
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.
It is his mercy.
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,
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.
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
something from him or something which is from his creation.
And we find that a lot we refer to things that efficiently is as a means of honoring.
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
materials and the intelligence there is
But the houses in which he is worshipped a lot of different diseases is
because they are more 100 He has made them in honor over the rest of the houses by calling them because he is worshipped
gamma which was sent as a miracle, the prophet SAW It
is one of us department explains,
which is found in the 40s
the purpose of explaining
the value your creation is combined with your mother's womb for 14 days in the form of an oily fluid,
then each light quartz raised similar period.
And as they come for flesh, or another scenario,
then an angel is sent to him to blow the spirit into
this is the process by which the spirit answers the body,
blows the spirit actually into the body.
But some person says but the law says that he blew the Spirit
and He blew the spirit.
Well, again, if we look through the bar,
we find that a law says
we created you and whatever you do, will love
you, whatever you
when I came to LA,
it was not used at through when it was alone.
This is in reference to the Battle of matter
in which when the enemy was lined up on the horizon, the problem was picked up by an
enemy after the battle.
They mentioned that you know before the Battle of battle, all of a sudden we found justify
a lot called the dust was supposed
to reach the eyes of the enemy that was hundreds of yards away.
This is a miracle.
So a lot of said it wasn't you that you but how long
it was in fact.
So a lot of we refer to certain things as being his his dream
because of the special status that it holds.
This entrance of the spirit into Adam is special because Adam was without father and
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.
And actually if we read on concerning the
story of very
Fatima ha ha basan Samia. So we sent to her Our spirits who took the appearance of a well formed
a lot of friends to gibreel the angel as our spirits has his spirit.
But in fact it was.
Allah uses the term spirits
in reference to
our spirit to honor
gibreel amongst angels.
when we look at these facts together, we can only conclude that the Spirit is created by
the angels put it into Adam and into every human being when he reaches a certain stage of human development.
It is a human spirit,
come to an end does it have a beginning?
allies without meaning
that goods cannot unite with a law, because it is finite, human
olara is infinite.
So, the true purpose and striving of man is not to become one with God,
as completely as
I have not created our mankind except for my worship, that is the central goal of human
humans to worship, not to become one.
Of course, you have, when you look into the hierarchy of saints,
you have an individual by the name of kolache,
was famous for the pronouncements I know
I am the
worst in the
A lot of we call ourselves up
with here is this man saying, I know who I am.
And when he said
he was tried by scholars is time and soul to return to give this up,
returns from his interviews, he stood up and he opened up his
his cloak and said, there is nothing inside this cloak except the law.
He was following the delusion
that men could become one with God.
And it should be looked at also that the origin of this
exists amongst Hinduism as it exists among Greek philosophy in the writings of Plato,
you will find references to this
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.
And these ideas
are foreign to Islam.
They are concepts of
that anyone can carry our prayers to God was was died because of their
elevated status is unacceptable as
the people will people have assigned that saints we don't really know really what their status all year long.
the belief that
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
person making prayer in the presence, not to the person,
not to the person
or even asking the person who doesn't pay in the present.
You see, this will make the value of the prayers more because the area of this person is blessed
that we should not send out
any religious journey except to three places
where prayer there is worth 500 prayers elsewhere.
My massive where there were 1000 players
and that sort of harm where parents are worth 100,000
these three places, the value of prayer there is increased based on the statements of profit.
We do not have the right to say that further increase in
all the places are equal.
It doesn't matter is there
there is no more value of prayer there.
And then the,
the people ruled
that the area of the Kaaba called hidden
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.
It is nonsense.
This area was a part of the top.
When the people were moving the Kaaba ran out of funds. During the time of the process alone, before he reached
out of funds in building it.
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.
This is why we have to go around
the name of cars in his mind is the name given by the people.
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.
sending the water back to the consensus only
came off the roof of the top
because anybody who sits there for a period of time you see the birds flying over, deprecating
The birds are flying over and deprecating. I know when I was in Canada before I came over here, you know people have come
Muslims in different parts of the world.
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.
accepted because I had no knowledge when I first moved to the home run
for a while and Watson on it was
not only flying but definitely
so what is deep love.
You no longer wish you could call it what it was you can't be removed.
There are taking this water in the evening somehow
in Medina, you find people doing the same thing.
And furthermore, when I was there studying
I observed that some people especially people from Pakistan, were coming in buying Bibles like perfume bottles, empty ones.
I have several You know, there are some people who are in charge of cleaning the house and I should say we're
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.
at certain times of the year those people who look after the ballot
go inside there
and they will dust off the green
and then this is what they put in the Bible and the people will come from India and Pakistan
believing that that now as a person dies
person before you
When people will be
the bearer of
their somehow everything which is connected to him in any way now carries
you know in India and Pakistan and also turkey you know different villages and so, they will have
container small container which they will note on certain occasions
and images they will have it here which they claimed the year from the end of the
claims hearing who grows they will cut off
and other people will have this hearing
and people will touch this thing just to get the team here
and in the museum in surfeasy Topkapi Museum in Turkey, they have also what they claim to be the food
that was knocked out during the bathroom
and in Morocco the opposite
and if you go around the Muslim world, you find the various cases out there
but the only last one
around you'll find how to make a hole
and people again attributing special
This is what the most important
become the most important thing
you find articles where a person finds a fish with a large
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
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
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
or another Christianity You know, he opens up some organ of the body and shows you how this organ formed across it. Then what
what do we
what do we have?
This is this is not
this is not
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.
what is the last time with
continue with the questions?
So I don't know.
of the questions,
topic of today's
You're on your part to ask until you have understood.
So please do not feel shy to ask
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.
as I suggested distracting points,
getting people back to
you, because you're dealing with something which has become
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
usually, because people are labeled labeled wahabis. No, this is the common pattern.
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.
I spoke about the bond, this is fundamental.
If you can bring people back to the foundations of Islam by having them for example,
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
from the lawyer.
But people as I said, have been cut off. And then of course, as he tried to bring them to his use
of departments. In our salon official sessions, we'll be looking at detail and we can see that this is the other
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.
If you hold on to them firmly, you will never be
Look over the last
two are inseparable
we cannot say we're only going to fall apart.
To understand the one we
can't separate them. A lot of revealed the final message of Islam through the core is Emerson,
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
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.
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
grand fell on the ground. So the other person said, Oh, you're gonna have to give some money and
I said well, what was that? He said, Well, you know our teacher
had told them that the waterfalls in the ground you should get some
these are the most
expensive. You know, when you are giving somebody says that this happened.
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
a principal. But no.
Have you ever said
that you have to do a
because you don't care?
does not want to fall on the ground. It's not your intent. If a person throws the crime in the ground, yes.
That he will, because he's intentionally hidden requirements on his on the events in the car.
To use your mind, if people come in
this one thing, you know, because what happens is that people are so involved in cultural practices in how you know what Islam
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.
When you see their practices, is so good.
But they call themselves
they have the Quran
in a cloth container hanging from the ceiling.
And they go in one room, they go into the burdens, and they feel
Now, he said, he tried to find out where does it come from? How do they explain? He found out?
What happened is that a family from the mainland, you know, when multitone is getting him to go over
silenx, Chase Shang chi secondsas out and they went to Taiwan.
Among them were Muslim family.
One family, they came, they settled there in
demand, you know, when his family he, he was all alone. And
what do you have to emphasize his children is putting the Koran in a high place that he didn't, couldn't meet
him, even his knowledge of Islam was just a few ritual that he had emphasized that whatever you do,
around the children, he followed what he told them.
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
inside of this class,
and they hung it from the ceiling.
And the Muslims now, you know, people are disarming spreading coming to Islam.
No, there was
no, no, you just became what's your contract, we have
a big problem,
big problem, people have been divorced from.
So, this is, I would say, is the most important you know, thrust that should be
come from to try to re educate people by bringing them back to the bar.
And back to
the once they start to set the crime as a loss is a loss of
telephone susceptibility. If you love or not, then follow me and a lot of us because everybody wants to be loved by a lot.
So there is a
respectful honor, the
respect and honor
is in obedience. This is where the respective obedience
as required and disobeying what the law says.
This respect, you get the crime, and you go again, so the law says
this is disrespectful.
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.
But it won't stop overnight. And most people who are trying to go down
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
we need some people to go and do this from time to time.
But the way to make a change, because this thing happened over a period of time,
it didn't happen overnight. The way to change this is to do it, you're building and establishing a new foundation based on
educate people to this new foundation, then we can make change.
You would like to know the
Way, yes, this is, you know, this is a part of the program. But
some of the things were to go through something of stuff here and something of IDs and solar
is to hire Lancelot. So this is what I intended to do what I mean,
is some way along the night, you know, so if
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
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
teach concerning Sahara, and salon, try to do that as a whole. But
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
trying to do the one thing, you know, then we will be doing a session on.
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.
So if this is the consensus of the people here, that they would like to skip the top tier, and
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
for the president, and going directly to salop. In our next session, please raise your hand
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.
Then we can do some and then come back to that.
So those in favor of
introduce a beginning slot in the next session. Please raise your hand.
Don't be shy.
Don't be shy.
follow step by step.
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
the law, you know, more practical?
No, no, we do understand this is no problem, you know, we will go back to see because we will
touch on them from time to time as we're going through salon, but
it's no problem, we can probably cover this align,
align, say, two sessions, we can finish it off and then go back to
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.
Okay, I think
that we shouldn't be so shy about
expressing your opinion, because in the beginning when I first
went out to the races and a couple others were you know,
Okay, no problem.
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.
This is not this is not a part of Islamic practice, to swear on the ground, to swear by a law. Yes.
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.
It is not really part and parcel of Islamic practice, and particularly, of course, for anonymously to do so it would be nice.
You said you heard
so that they can believe in one God
I do not believe that this is islamically handled.
And I would check myself to see whether in fact, it is different.
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.
But the court system, generally speaking, is quite firmly based in the Islamic tradition had the
cutting off the hand and
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,
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
support from or from the fact that
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

this is a general principle in Islam, I mean, if you prohibit the means to a thing you must be private in that sense
photograph is slightly different than the difference of opinion concerning photograph. Now, some with a body of scholars
that the photograph is the modern version of
painting, it's modern painting, you know, like the computer, you use the buttons now, and you can do
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,
the mean doesn't change the law concerning the results
and the same principle. So, those people who analyze the situation according to that, they will that photograph are
Some scholars also hold that the photograph is not the same as the painting and the carving.
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,
you are capturing the light
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,
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.
Or, you know, honoring and elevating.
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,
the image, worship of the image. So even those who say the photograph has nothing to say, they will
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
so they will disallow the hanging of these images.
if you stand up to meet them,
you stand to hug them to kiss them, whatever. This is one
you're sitting down to them, it's difficult to read and hug whilst you're sitting.
So you stand up to greet them and hug them not standing up in respect for them.
The respect is different because once you're saying you're standing in respect, then it becomes four
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

So what was the
so therefore it is not allowed to stand.
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.
We've cut straight on their feet. But this we're not worshipping them, this is only respect to parents.
But these are
not supposed to be a penalty for our sinful
I understand that. Understand that intention is different, but to see, for example,
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?
I mean, truly, these are judged by their intention.
But what it means is that
if you do something halau
for the purpose of worshiping God, then you will be rewarded for that intention. But if you do something haram
