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

Follow the path of righteousness.

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

As I mentioned yesterday,

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

today

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

would begin a series

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

of

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

lectures or presentation

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

on fundamental

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

fundamental areas of Islamic knowledge, which each of them should have

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

some idea about to help him in his practice,

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

to understand the responsibility

00:00:53--> 00:01:00

that each and every one of us shoulders, when he says that he is

00:01:04--> 00:01:11

the first of the series of presentations or lectures will be concerning.

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

Yesterday, I gave you a brief introduction to this topic,

00:01:19--> 00:01:22

today, we will start to look at it in more detail.

00:01:31--> 00:01:33

Arabic means,

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

unification

00:01:37--> 00:01:39

to try to bring some things together

00:01:40--> 00:01:41

to unify

00:01:45--> 00:01:48

the context we talked about how Hebrew

00:01:50--> 00:01:57

we are obviously not talking about unifying a lot, because when you unify something

00:01:58--> 00:02:05

or the term unification, it implies that there were things that are separate, you are bringing them together

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

and the law

00:02:08--> 00:02:16

we do not consider being separate and we have been locked together. So, common Islamic point of view

00:02:20--> 00:02:25

cannot be understood from literal Arabic

00:02:28--> 00:02:28

Meaning,

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

what it means,

00:02:33--> 00:02:36

generally, is to conceive of the law

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

as one

00:02:40--> 00:02:46

in all of the various actions, same practices that we do

00:02:51--> 00:02:55

in everything that we consider to be acts of worship,

00:02:57--> 00:02:58

everything that we do

00:02:59--> 00:03:00

with a law in mind,

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

we do it

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

keeping

00:03:06--> 00:03:12

not only in theory, but in practice the fact that law

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

so, we practically

00:03:19--> 00:03:20

Express

00:03:26--> 00:03:26

Now,

00:03:27--> 00:03:30

in order to understand these concepts

00:03:32--> 00:03:36

or all of the different implications of these concepts

00:03:39--> 00:03:42

of the past have divided the study

00:03:44--> 00:03:45

into three basic areas.

00:03:48--> 00:03:49

And this division

00:03:51--> 00:03:53

doesn't have to be three it could be

00:03:54--> 00:03:59

or it could be one wearing, all of the aspects are expressed

00:04:02--> 00:04:05

this division into three should not be looked at the

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

division and even the term tawheed itself as a science when we think of the scientist

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

It is something which you will not find

00:04:19--> 00:04:20

where losses

00:04:21--> 00:04:22

should follow.

00:04:26--> 00:04:30

And you will not find actually anywhere where

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

term.

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

However,

00:04:41--> 00:04:50

when he sent him to Yemen, at the near the governor of Yemen, he told him that you will be coming to the people

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

on the people have

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

said that the first thing you should call

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

Let me say,

00:05:06--> 00:05:09

this was the first thing that he was commanded by the

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

people

00:05:17--> 00:05:18

from this same verb,

00:05:24--> 00:05:25

when you say a lot is,

00:05:28--> 00:05:30

also comes from the same

00:05:34--> 00:05:35

information.

00:05:36--> 00:05:46

That is science, which is only the scientists of this was not something which was taught, as I am willing to go into the details of it

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

directly.

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

daily prayer,

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

science of prayer

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

in the form that

00:06:04--> 00:06:05

the sciences,

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

which I will be going into, this was not

00:06:11--> 00:06:13

the way that I'm going to be explaining,

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

to think that if you want

00:06:18--> 00:06:21

to find your pilot anywhere you want to go, where did he

00:06:22--> 00:06:32

go understand that it has its origins in the teachings of the pilot, because whatever I'm going to explain to you it will be based on

00:06:34--> 00:06:35

the basis of the religion.

00:06:36--> 00:06:39

It's not a question of my opinion, in your opinion, his opinion

00:06:40--> 00:06:51

from the center. But what happens is that, in science, sciences have a world of arithmetic, for example, science.

00:06:54--> 00:06:55

That funky with

00:06:59--> 00:07:00

the way you

00:07:02--> 00:07:03

know, there's not

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

a nice

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

conditions for

00:07:09--> 00:07:18

the ninja Sciences is a rule in later times, as the scholars gathered the information that had been handed down

00:07:19--> 00:07:24

and began to categorize it into different categories to make it easier to study,

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

easier to understand.

00:07:28--> 00:07:30

And what we should understand also is that

00:07:31--> 00:07:32

the science of

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

science in itself out of a nice,

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

nice

00:07:40--> 00:07:41

time

00:07:43--> 00:07:50

development of the Muslim community, which did not exist in the time of the Prophet

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

when the leadership of Islam shifted,

00:08:04--> 00:08:06

what was truly

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

which was with the will of the people,

00:08:19--> 00:08:21

period of omiya.

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

This is when, during this period, when the leadership change,

00:08:33--> 00:08:37

there was a change in the

00:08:39--> 00:08:40

teaching

00:08:41--> 00:08:42

or in the

00:08:45--> 00:08:45

teaching,

00:08:46--> 00:08:47

which

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

has no chance to develop

00:08:55--> 00:08:56

properties

00:08:57--> 00:09:08

and teachings were appalled by the leadership of Islam all the way down to the average person

00:09:11--> 00:09:13

into Egypt, into

00:09:14--> 00:09:18

Syria, Palestine, Turkey, India,

00:09:19--> 00:09:25

Sudan, in some areas, where people have their own philosophy.

00:09:26--> 00:09:35

In Egypt, Egypt, Alexandria, the center of Christians, polishes for many hundreds of years.

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

There were great schools of philosophy.

00:09:49--> 00:09:51

Around rounds, they have

00:09:54--> 00:09:56

their own system of philosophy which evolved

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

People who had their own ideas about who God was.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

And why man's relationship to God.

00:10:09--> 00:10:12

When these people entered Islam, during the time of

00:10:15--> 00:10:26

the teachings of Islam were very clear, very strongly supported by the, the leadership, as well as by the community as a whole.

00:10:28--> 00:10:31

When the leadership and the quality of leadership change,

00:10:32--> 00:10:44

then you found that the leadership does not have the cameras concern to protect the teachings of Islam that existed earlier period at the time of

00:10:46--> 00:10:47

Russia.

00:10:50--> 00:10:52

So, what happened is that

00:10:53--> 00:10:54

those people

00:10:56--> 00:10:57

accepted Islam

00:10:58--> 00:11:12

during the earlier period, not because they believed in Islam, but because the force of Islam was so strong, they could not afford it militarily. They accepted Islam,

00:11:13--> 00:11:18

you know, as they cover for their own activities, and they continue to work

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

internally.

00:11:22--> 00:11:24

So when the time has

00:11:25--> 00:11:35

ended, and the leadership change, then these people now started to talk about things which are contrary to economic concepts.

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

And

00:11:42--> 00:11:49

also, to be fair, there are also people who join me sincerely.

00:11:50--> 00:11:51

But because of the

00:11:53--> 00:11:55

understanding that they've had, prior to

00:11:57--> 00:12:01

some of this, which was not clarified when they first read this, they also

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

and

00:12:05--> 00:12:08

they introduced also ideas which were foreign.

00:12:14--> 00:12:21

such ideas didn't have any chance to grow. If a person express an idea to be immediately dealt

00:12:25--> 00:12:33

with when the leadership change, and they didn't care anymore about protection of Islam, the only protection of themselves and their own

00:12:35--> 00:12:44

power, we find that these ideas started to spread and then became the job of the Muslim scholars to

00:12:45--> 00:12:47

protect the oma from the

00:12:50--> 00:12:54

time, they gathered the arguments of the people

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

and went back to the four islands

00:12:59--> 00:12:59

and

00:13:01--> 00:13:05

refuted these arguments in a systematic fashion.

00:13:06--> 00:13:12

And the reputation of these arguments is what produced the science of

00:13:18--> 00:13:20

the reputation arguments,

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

which were brought

00:13:24--> 00:13:39

supporting ideas, which were contrary to the pure teachings concerning God being essence and his relationship to man and man's relationship to

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

origin

00:13:48--> 00:13:51

is divided into three basic areas.

00:13:53--> 00:13:54

The first area is known as

00:13:55--> 00:13:56

Ruby

00:13:58--> 00:13:59

or unity.

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

The second is known as copied as

00:14:06--> 00:14:07

the Unity

00:14:08--> 00:14:09

name.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

And the third is known as

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

an A vada

00:14:17--> 00:14:22

which is known as the unity of worship.

00:14:25--> 00:14:26

There are three

00:14:27--> 00:14:28

makeup

00:14:32--> 00:14:35

The only representative and they're all interrelated.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

The first section

00:14:39--> 00:14:42

and the term will be a comb through the Arabic word.

00:14:44--> 00:14:46

You know when we say a lot,

00:14:47--> 00:14:48

he denies

00:14:51--> 00:14:53

the sustaining unit.

00:14:55--> 00:14:56

This is in reference to

00:14:57--> 00:14:58

the release

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

That a law is the creator and Sustainer of

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

what it

00:15:09--> 00:15:14

is that nothing happens in the universe, except by a law, which

00:15:16--> 00:15:19

we saw yesterday recently about destiny,

00:15:20--> 00:15:23

the concept of destiny comes within this

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

aspect of

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

nothing takes place in the universe, except by

00:15:32--> 00:15:32

what

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

it is all by a lot.

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

And although

00:15:43--> 00:15:47

we do not say that a lot,

00:15:52--> 00:15:58

which does take place in the world, is ultimately

00:15:59--> 00:16:00

divine.

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

And alive even told us

00:16:06--> 00:16:10

to seek refuge from that in which he creates

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

the second last hoorah we say,

00:16:18--> 00:16:20

refuge in the Lord of the dice,

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

from the evil

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

there is,

00:16:34--> 00:16:37

for example, you may be eating a piece of fish

00:16:38--> 00:16:39

in a fishbowl

00:16:44--> 00:16:47

that's the rest of the hospital, then you have to cut off a year here.

00:16:50--> 00:16:51

many more things.

00:16:55--> 00:17:01

Because that same fishbowl was inside of the dish, it was good for the fish

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

to keep his body together,

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

this is what we talked about some things that

00:17:17--> 00:17:24

are evil from the point of view that even the intent behind when a person chooses to eat

00:17:26--> 00:17:27

and allow that

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

in a more complete,

00:17:44--> 00:17:47

so you have the relative aspect to it.

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

Because

00:17:54--> 00:17:58

of the fear of the beaver is a amazing, wonderful thing.

00:18:00--> 00:18:02

When good happens to him,

00:18:03--> 00:18:06

he's thankful a lot of work

00:18:10--> 00:18:13

before him, he is patient.

00:18:16--> 00:18:20

So even though the vaccine which he considers to be evil, there is

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

if we recognize that it is in fact, part of life,

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

and

00:18:30--> 00:18:33

if we're patient and maintain our faith.

00:18:39--> 00:18:41

So we're getting there

00:18:43--> 00:18:49

and all the rules take place in the universe ultimately is by a lot.

00:18:51--> 00:18:54

So what this means to us on a very tactical level

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

is that

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

we cannot depend

00:19:02--> 00:19:04

on anything or anyone

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

to bring good

00:19:08--> 00:19:09

or perfect

00:19:17--> 00:19:18

good luck charm.

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

people all around the world.

00:19:24--> 00:19:28

Certain things which are considered to be omen of good

00:19:31--> 00:19:34

happens. This means some good

00:19:36--> 00:19:39

i'm sure every country around the world

00:19:41--> 00:19:42

you have this type of belief

00:19:44--> 00:19:46

and many of them may be moving.

00:19:50--> 00:19:51

In the West,

00:19:52--> 00:19:53

we have

00:19:54--> 00:19:57

the number seven is considered a lucky number.

00:20:02--> 00:20:08

And then also, we have the number 13. To consider unlucky.

00:20:11--> 00:20:15

And these affect the lives of people

00:20:16--> 00:20:22

to a certain degree, for example, that if you go to hotel

00:20:26--> 00:20:29

the hotel that you go to do not have a 13th floor.

00:20:33--> 00:20:38

Outside there is number 13. When you're going up in the elevator, there is no button number

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

11

00:20:56--> 00:20:59

if I put on that elevator, nobody's

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

practical economic point of view, I will call it 14 because that's what they want.

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

Without

00:21:22--> 00:21:23

everything else,

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

the society which is supposed to be the most technological society

00:21:34--> 00:21:35

and this is how

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

in

00:21:39--> 00:21:47

America, there was one occasion in the 60s, late 60s, when

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

and Apollo

00:21:52--> 00:21:54

one of the Apollo moonshot

00:21:55--> 00:21:56

capsules

00:21:57--> 00:22:06

and there was something wrong with the rockets, rockets on the capsule. So it appears that this capsule is blowing off into space.

00:22:08--> 00:22:09

Now, for the Russians,

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

because the Russians

00:22:14--> 00:22:16

didn't go right. They just went off in space.

00:22:18--> 00:22:20

Because people in Russia are expendable.

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

For the good of the society, they'll sacrifice

00:22:27--> 00:22:33

whereas in America, it is the opposite people you know each individual his life the concern

00:22:34--> 00:22:36

that you have people mass murder

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

100 people and people will be fighting

00:22:42--> 00:22:48

because if you can bring back the lives of others with you, they will defend the fight and defend the life

00:22:54--> 00:22:59

for America for one of their capsule, their spaceships to walk with the state of

00:23:01--> 00:23:01

greatness.

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

So the American people

00:23:08--> 00:23:10

they try everything to try to you know,

00:23:13--> 00:23:13

maybe

00:23:15--> 00:23:20

not end up in disaster. Eventually, they managed to use the lunar lander

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

spaceship which was designed, they were able to use the rocket on it to cause the

00:23:29--> 00:23:45

capsule to come close enough to catch the gravity of the moon, and then circle around the moon and just come back. Guess what, what the mission of landing on the moon, they were just really happy when they finally got it to catch the gravity of the moon circle around come back

00:23:48--> 00:23:57

down in the Atlantic and they brought them up to the ship and they brought them back to Cape Canaveral came up with helicopter came off. And all the news people are rushing around.

00:23:58--> 00:24:00

And they talked to the commander of the

00:24:01--> 00:24:02

ship.

00:24:04--> 00:24:04

He said

00:24:11--> 00:24:13

if you see something wrong with the ship beforehand,

00:24:15--> 00:24:17

this was Apollo 13.

00:24:19--> 00:24:22

This is a man with a PhD in

00:24:27--> 00:24:30

the country that he should have happened to because this was

00:24:34--> 00:24:42

on Friday the 13th 13th

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

showing you how deep rooted these kinds of concepts can be

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

Look back in your own society, your own practices

00:25:10--> 00:25:10

now

00:25:12--> 00:25:13

destroyed

00:25:17--> 00:25:18

because only one

00:25:19--> 00:25:20

can come from

00:25:22--> 00:25:23

a lot of folders

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

your

00:25:40--> 00:25:42

guarantees Good for you, if you do

00:25:45--> 00:25:47

you can guarantee for yourself

00:25:51--> 00:25:58

depending on any of these other objects or things to win, it is the opposite of

00:25:59--> 00:26:00

soy

00:26:04--> 00:26:07

or depending on any of these things to protect you from evil.

00:26:22--> 00:26:27

Many people believe that if you are born a certain date,

00:26:30--> 00:26:38

by consideration considerations have affected you in a certain way, in a way that certain people who specialize in the science of astrology

00:26:40--> 00:26:43

they're able to predict for you you know what type of personality.

00:26:45--> 00:26:50

So, if you are born in July, between a certain days and other days you are considering you

00:26:55--> 00:26:55

know,

00:26:56--> 00:27:03

variety of different signs which are assigned to you depending on the month in which you're born.

00:27:04--> 00:27:05

And you have this column

00:27:08--> 00:27:10

the astrological

00:27:11--> 00:27:13

zodiac, you go there,

00:27:17--> 00:27:18

today is a good day for business.

00:27:20--> 00:27:22

If you have any plans,

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

watch out for this person.

00:27:29--> 00:27:30

So, what are they doing?

00:27:32--> 00:27:39

They are trying to provide for you a means of avoiding evil and getting good

00:27:41--> 00:27:41

can they

00:27:42--> 00:27:43

do that?

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

What is destined

00:27:54--> 00:27:55

and alive even told

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

you

00:28:19--> 00:28:20

mean

00:28:22--> 00:28:31

preventing evil in the total sense and any good for yourself other than to the dependent

00:28:37--> 00:28:41

us and our dependence on the law is

00:28:42--> 00:28:44

among the things which we call.

00:28:51--> 00:28:52

Now,

00:28:54--> 00:28:54

the second

00:28:59--> 00:29:00

This means

00:29:01--> 00:29:07

that we understand a lot according to how he has described itself.

00:29:10--> 00:29:17

We do not describe a lot in ways we cannot describe himself because only allow.

00:29:20--> 00:29:28

So therefore, we can only describe the law in the ways that God reveals to us to His revelation.

00:29:30--> 00:29:31

And to his here's

00:29:33--> 00:29:34

the final theme

00:29:40--> 00:29:41

in understanding

00:29:44--> 00:29:49

we do not give a lot of qualities to men.

00:29:50--> 00:29:53

Normally we give men qualities.

00:29:55--> 00:29:56

The fundamentals

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

may 2

00:30:01--> 00:30:03

There is nothing

00:30:07--> 00:30:09

we may share with

00:30:11--> 00:30:15

certain qualities in the sense that we may be merciful.

00:30:16--> 00:30:17

But our Mercy is

00:30:19--> 00:30:21

where the laws mercy to be perfect.

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

So, what it means is that we do not

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

give

00:30:32--> 00:30:33

any

00:30:36--> 00:30:40

abilities, which Allah has described,

00:30:44--> 00:30:49

we do not give any aspect of his creation, whether it is the Kaaba

00:30:54--> 00:30:55

or the

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

any object,

00:30:59--> 00:31:02

the quantities to being good for us

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

to prevent people from defaulting

00:31:08--> 00:31:09

to

00:31:11--> 00:31:12

that someone

00:31:15--> 00:31:20

can tell you what is going to happen to you today to go to such

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

a fortune

00:31:35--> 00:31:38

is prayer is not accepted.

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

Just

00:31:48--> 00:31:50

out of curiosity, the URL

00:31:52--> 00:32:01

to the page where it tells you about the site, you are this sign here that sign because that page

00:32:02--> 00:32:02

that

00:32:03--> 00:32:13

is the question for today in the newspapers. So, you have to go to the house of the fortune teller to the shops to get the information today

00:32:14--> 00:32:19

in the newspaper, and you learning and reading that is going to the fortune.

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

When you do so, you're committed

00:32:27--> 00:32:28

then a lot of

00:32:29--> 00:32:33

reward your prayers for 40 days. And

00:32:36--> 00:32:39

I know some of you might say, well, then what's the point in

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

looking at the face today

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

don't want to pay for the next 30 days

00:32:49--> 00:32:49

because

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

you're committed an even greater

00:32:55--> 00:32:55

because

00:32:57--> 00:33:00

that's the distinction between us and the disbelievers.

00:33:05--> 00:33:09

Abandoned this has become a captive

00:33:15--> 00:33:20

river abandoned spirit as much as becomes a Catholic.

00:33:22--> 00:33:23

So, if

00:33:26--> 00:33:27

you pray,

00:33:28--> 00:33:30

because you have an obligation to pay

00:33:32--> 00:33:34

for the war for your prayer,

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

you

00:33:37--> 00:33:38

of course,

00:33:40--> 00:33:41

that chart

00:33:47--> 00:33:50

and you may be forgiven

00:33:52--> 00:33:54

if you have more opportunity to get

00:33:55--> 00:33:56

to be aware of this.

00:33:59--> 00:34:00

But if you knew

00:34:03--> 00:34:10

you had heard it before, or you had the opportunity to get this knowledge that you did not then you are held responsible

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

because speaking of knowledge come from.

00:34:19--> 00:34:20

So,

00:34:21--> 00:34:23

this is the severity of the crime

00:34:26--> 00:34:27

further

00:34:28--> 00:34:30

to a fortune teller,

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

fortune teller,

00:34:35--> 00:34:37

he has this belief in what

00:34:38--> 00:34:39

he then becoming.

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

That is

00:34:49--> 00:34:52

your horoscope to read and be needed.

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

So if you have friends or family, doing the things that you have to try to get them to

00:35:09--> 00:35:13

stop yourself and also help others

00:35:15--> 00:35:16

one of the traps

00:35:24--> 00:35:25

you have people

00:35:37--> 00:35:40

around their hearts around the waist of the baby

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

these days, you protect them from evil.

00:35:47--> 00:35:53

But in fact, what they're doing is just like the

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

pagans who

00:35:58--> 00:36:00

because that

00:36:01--> 00:36:05

was not meant to be used in the session, if this was the way of using the

00:36:13--> 00:36:13

city.

00:36:24--> 00:36:27

And he describes for you

00:36:28--> 00:36:31

and you take this description,

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

put it in your pocket believing that giant this description is going to make you well

00:36:37--> 00:36:41

as silly as that is, it is the same that I mean,

00:36:43--> 00:36:46

because the firearm was meant to be read,

00:36:48--> 00:36:50

understood and apply

00:36:55--> 00:36:58

as it is done around most of the Muslim world today.

00:37:02--> 00:37:06

It may not necessarily reach the level of shoot, but it is

00:37:09--> 00:37:10

a useless

00:37:12--> 00:37:13

wherever you find people

00:37:23--> 00:37:30

are people who ritualistically not reflecting on the community is exhausted.

00:37:31--> 00:37:31

Because

00:37:33--> 00:37:35

whoever needs one word

00:37:43--> 00:37:45

was said that

00:37:47--> 00:37:50

while you were saying that the people who you

00:38:01--> 00:38:04

means of encouraging them to leave

00:38:08--> 00:38:08

because

00:38:11--> 00:38:15

the more they reflected on the meaning the more that they will change their life

00:38:19--> 00:38:21

will change. I like this revelation of

00:38:23--> 00:38:24

the world of darkness.

00:38:32--> 00:38:33

To just read it

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

to

00:38:37--> 00:38:40

the veterans detectors in the word, not reflecting on the meanings.

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

This is

00:38:46--> 00:38:55

a meaningless act. It is an activity which could be a source of punishment for us on the data. Because we might be reading

00:39:06--> 00:39:07

the Id

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

be

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

against you on the Olympia

00:39:42--> 00:39:44

you will be by watching red

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

slowly and his understanding

00:40:13--> 00:40:15

You want to get benefit from the

00:40:19--> 00:40:22

dead the day didn't used to

00:40:23--> 00:40:26

study more than five verses at a time.

00:40:29--> 00:40:33

And they wouldn't work the only five verses until they understood

00:40:38--> 00:40:39

auditory mission

00:40:41--> 00:40:45

guidance, they try to apply this, then they went on to the next

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

one

00:40:58--> 00:40:59

look into our lives

00:41:05--> 00:41:07

we are what they call Ramadan

00:41:11--> 00:41:15

during the rest of the year here, avian Salaam lie you know not

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

not very visible but during ramadan

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

ramadan

00:41:32--> 00:41:42

somehow that these rituals that we do in Ramadan will be acceptable to allow and we'll cover for all the evil that

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

this is the

00:41:47--> 00:41:49

ignorance of religion

00:41:51--> 00:41:52

that

00:41:55--> 00:41:58

worship which are done in a ritualistic fashion.

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

So, when we look

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

at this,

00:42:09--> 00:42:09

we have to

00:42:11--> 00:42:12

read it

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

and

00:42:16--> 00:42:18

not use it like a magical charm

00:42:22--> 00:42:30

that we put it on the highest shelf in the house and he stays there all during the year just piles of particles around

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

should try to benefit from the way that

00:42:55--> 00:42:56

we also have the belief

00:42:58--> 00:42:59

that

00:43:01--> 00:43:04

times of difficulty arise. It is

00:43:05--> 00:43:07

in fact recommended to call on

00:43:13--> 00:43:17

one of the popular people that Muslim tends to call on his

00:43:22--> 00:43:24

when calamity strikes you find people fall in love

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

with them.

00:43:45--> 00:43:54

This is just to say, when we have this life For example, we want to get something done.

00:43:55--> 00:43:59

Here we have a problem. you as an individual have a problem working in this

00:44:03--> 00:44:05

you can't just go walking into the

00:44:06--> 00:44:22

office to hit men not gonna walk into the door. I have this problem No, you have to go to your work supervisor, your supervisor you will talk to somebody else and eventually they will talk to you and your problem will be solved.

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

How can you stand before a lot

00:44:37--> 00:44:42

You must call on somebody who is pure, close to God. They call

00:44:45--> 00:44:46

them to pray.

00:44:50--> 00:44:56

However when they do, what they have done is they have brought a lot down to the level of

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

alarm

00:45:02--> 00:45:03

You know, he does think

00:45:07--> 00:45:08

he's unique.

00:45:09--> 00:45:11

If you want to call on Him,

00:45:15--> 00:45:16

you don't need to call anybody,

00:45:20--> 00:45:22

only using the restroom and only you

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

are not as unique

00:45:27--> 00:45:31

as we used to be here, then we are making a law

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

you

00:45:39--> 00:45:42

which is not from it, it is redacted

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

and the

00:45:47--> 00:45:48

manner

00:45:50--> 00:45:56

in which there is nothing which will bring you closer to Allah

00:46:01--> 00:46:03

without commanding you to do

00:46:04--> 00:46:07

in other words, anything which can bring you,

00:46:08--> 00:46:09

I have commanded you.

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

So,

00:46:17--> 00:46:25

if we have to do anything, which we feel is pleasing to a lot, which will bring us to a lot, it must be based on a commandment

00:46:27--> 00:46:28

or a commandment

00:46:30--> 00:46:33

for it to be an acceptable form of worship.

00:46:34--> 00:46:35

Otherwise,

00:46:36--> 00:46:42

we are in fact, worshipping in a way, which is not pleasing to

00:46:43--> 00:46:45

way which is not acceptable.

00:46:48--> 00:46:51

So, not only do we have to be sure

00:46:52--> 00:46:55

that all of our acts of worship are directed.

00:46:58--> 00:47:00

But they have to be

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

approved by law.

00:47:09--> 00:47:13

Now, let's represent these three aspects represent

00:47:14--> 00:47:16

the fundamental

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

concept,

00:47:23--> 00:47:24

the opposite of death, as I said,

00:47:26--> 00:47:26

the shift

00:47:28--> 00:47:32

that is the worship of other than

00:47:33--> 00:47:35

in whatever form it

00:47:38--> 00:47:42

is, one denied is about existence, than one worship other than

00:47:45--> 00:47:50

because in denying the existence of God, human beings must

00:47:51--> 00:47:58

explain their existence by giving the qualities of God to this creation.

00:48:00--> 00:48:02

Because when you ask the atheist,

00:48:03--> 00:48:04

how

00:48:05--> 00:48:09

we came to be where we are today, you will say bye

00:48:12--> 00:48:12

bye.

00:48:14--> 00:48:19

And everything when you look into the life of the individual, everything happens is by chance.

00:48:22--> 00:48:28

So, his destiny, his life, his creation, everything his existence is controlled by

00:48:30--> 00:48:30

them.

00:48:32--> 00:48:39

But he has in denial law, he now gives the powers of the law, a blind horse which he called.

00:48:45--> 00:48:47

And as I said in the lecture, yes.

00:48:49--> 00:48:51

All of the other religions

00:48:52--> 00:48:53

that believe in God,

00:48:56--> 00:48:59

in fact, worship His creation

00:49:01--> 00:49:05

while believing that they're worshiping God,

00:49:09--> 00:49:12

and what they're committing in doing that is

00:49:13--> 00:49:14

the grave

00:49:15--> 00:49:18

The only unforgivable sin

00:49:23--> 00:49:27

the major ship, which is the actual act of power,

00:49:29--> 00:49:32

frustrating to other than a lot and

00:49:34--> 00:49:36

another aspect which is called miners,

00:49:37--> 00:49:38

or hidden

00:49:39--> 00:49:44

and this is doing acts of worship for other than

00:49:47--> 00:49:48

making solo

00:49:50--> 00:49:51

and

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

the person will feel that they

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

are a

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

religious man

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

So, you want to impress him on you know, how good you are. So, you know, instead of being one minute that you usually finish it in five minutes and making very cool

00:50:14--> 00:50:15

because

00:50:17--> 00:50:17

this is

00:50:19--> 00:50:24

you and this can affect the results evenly.

00:50:26--> 00:50:29

This is one thing that we have to be very careful

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

that

00:50:37--> 00:50:39

the nation the body

00:50:40--> 00:50:41

is like a black

00:50:43--> 00:50:48

falling on a black soul in the middle of a moonless night

00:50:51--> 00:50:53

you see a black panther

00:51:01--> 00:51:06

you may start to do something with a good intention and that intention can change.

00:51:08--> 00:51:19

So, we have to be very careful about what we do. This is why I emphasize the importance of intention in the comments in the

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

agenda.

00:51:24--> 00:51:25

Before we make some

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

Connect,

00:51:28--> 00:51:29

before we do any,

00:51:31--> 00:51:38

anything, which you consider to be good and important, you should try to remember, remember that we're doing it

00:51:39--> 00:51:42

a lot, so, that we do not fall into it.

00:51:46--> 00:51:47

So, this is

00:51:49--> 00:51:50

summarize

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

the concept of tawheed

00:51:55--> 00:52:12

in a very simple fashion. In the future session, we will look at some other aspects of the hidden shoe as we look at some of the other areas, which are related to tawheed which affect our life

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

chances

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

if your intent is not

00:52:48--> 00:52:55

to believe that this in some way, shape or form to protect you, what you're wearing before

00:52:56--> 00:52:59

decorated and of course, we're male

00:53:01--> 00:53:01

or female,

00:53:03--> 00:53:04

this would not in itself be

00:53:07--> 00:53:16

islamically it would be something you would avoid, why? because all it takes is for example for you to have walked away

00:53:18--> 00:53:22

with this the intense of it being a form of jewelry, not a thing to

00:53:24--> 00:53:25

you by

00:53:26--> 00:53:27

your wife died,

00:53:28--> 00:53:29

Satan come

00:53:30--> 00:53:34

to your children and say well, to wear this to protect

00:53:36--> 00:53:37

your father.

00:53:40--> 00:53:41

They can now start

00:53:42--> 00:53:43

thinking that

00:53:46--> 00:53:52

you can inadvertently cause people to walk straight by

00:53:54--> 00:54:07

other people may feature your example without understanding why you're doing these types of things, you know things which which people have misunderstood are in confusion as to try to avoid

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

these which can lead

00:54:11--> 00:54:14

for example, in a way alcohol was prohibited.

00:54:16--> 00:54:24

prohibited the containers in which alcohol used to be kept. There are two commandments.

00:54:29--> 00:54:37

For example, it is not acceptable for you to have a bottle with us to carry you know Johnnie Walker or some

00:54:38--> 00:54:40

alcohol but you're using it to keep water

00:54:43--> 00:54:45

unless you have no

00:54:47--> 00:54:49

desperation. This is all you have

00:54:51--> 00:54:52

to choose.

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

Or you may find ornaments, you know they have lampshades or they'll take bottles, Scotch whisky whatever. They're

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

near the bottom and causes to turn into an ashtray or into a lamp,

00:55:11--> 00:55:18

you avoid these type of things, which are associated with drinking,

00:55:23--> 00:55:28

practicing, because people use the violence, it is better to avoid

00:55:33--> 00:55:35

the thing from my point of view,

00:55:47--> 00:55:48

our Asian

00:55:59--> 00:56:02

the tip of the week,

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

this knee

00:56:24--> 00:56:27

and after someone did that,

00:56:28--> 00:56:28

when

00:56:30--> 00:56:32

people were doing after 30 days,

00:56:33--> 00:56:35

they have to click the people. And

00:56:37--> 00:56:38

again, this time

00:56:42--> 00:56:44

3035 or 40.

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

And they have

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

32.

00:56:54--> 00:57:00

And not only when after 40 days, they're very following, again for

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

the people

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

and they're

00:57:07--> 00:57:10

very different business for

00:57:17--> 00:57:18

myself is

00:57:23--> 00:57:24

the idea of

00:57:26--> 00:57:30

this is based on the teachings and the practices of the Prophet

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

on the seventh day,

00:57:34--> 00:57:36

but on the seventh day after the child,

00:57:38--> 00:57:40

the child is circumcised

00:57:44--> 00:57:45

here is weight

00:57:46--> 00:57:48

value in gold is given.

00:57:51--> 00:57:56

And an animal or two to indicate that male

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

or female r1 also indicates for male

00:58:01--> 00:58:07

animals slaughter and the meat is given for

00:58:08--> 00:58:11

neighbors from eating whatever this is,

00:58:12--> 00:58:13

this is

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

from

00:58:18--> 00:58:19

somebody not able to

00:58:23--> 00:58:25

do what you can, if you cannot fly.

00:58:26--> 00:58:38

For them, you just do the circumcision, the sharing of the air, you can't get, they can't afford the gift. So you just do the apple tables, you know, and also the child is named

00:58:40--> 00:58:44

according to strategy this way, and sometimes they call it the nameserver.

00:58:51--> 00:58:57

However, you know if for one reason or the other, you're not able to do it on the seventh day.

00:58:58--> 00:59:03

On another day after that is possible, some recommended like the 14 to 24

00:59:04--> 00:59:06

hour drive, there's nothing for that.

00:59:07--> 00:59:11

Matter of fact, he did himself you know when he was

00:59:13--> 00:59:15

trading going to compensate for multiple

00:59:22--> 00:59:28

images as the occasion arrives for the festival day is

00:59:30--> 00:59:32

on the 15th traditionally,

00:59:33--> 00:59:34

this is wrong.

00:59:36--> 00:59:41

This is on the 16th without the intention of setting it on the 15th

00:59:42--> 00:59:47

once you do it believing that it's supposed to be done, because everybody else then it becomes

00:59:49--> 00:59:55

a switch which in itself may be good and acceptable was around intention can become wrong.

00:59:59--> 01:00:00

Now in terms of

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

When a person dies

01:00:02--> 01:00:03

fast, which is the time

01:00:05--> 01:00:14

where they gather the people in it, every person thinks that you are pushing images, and they're recycling and all these other you know, and everybody

01:00:15--> 01:00:26

needs everything. And we say that, when we look at that, and look at what we talked about concerning the recitation of what needs to be said, you can see that this

01:00:28--> 01:00:31

besides is not being from the practice of problems at all,

01:00:32--> 01:00:37

he did not do it nor that is combined with besides that, it is no

01:00:39--> 01:00:42

it is a meaningless ritual being done, which has

01:00:46--> 01:00:47

the idea of meaning,

01:00:49--> 01:00:52

asking a lot to give that

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

to the person with

01:00:58--> 01:01:03

practice, there are different amongst the scholars as to whether it's accepted.

01:01:04--> 01:01:08

Now, if we use the

01:01:09--> 01:01:12

basic principles that work

01:01:14--> 01:01:15

commands

01:01:16--> 01:01:17

and what

01:01:19--> 01:01:23

is what is acceptable, what they did not command

01:01:26--> 01:01:27

to apply that,

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

then

01:01:30--> 01:01:34

we know there is no evidence from the practice of the process.

01:01:35--> 01:01:39

For the recitation of the giving of the reward,

01:01:42--> 01:01:43

there's no evidence

01:01:45--> 01:01:47

we do know that

01:01:50--> 01:01:51

people to fight

01:01:52--> 01:01:57

on behalf of some people who are unable to guide

01:01:59--> 01:02:04

so, here are the acts of worship being done and the reward for it is being given

01:02:05--> 01:02:06

to

01:02:07--> 01:02:07

someone else.

01:02:09--> 01:02:10

The first

01:02:12--> 01:02:13

one and this was

01:02:14--> 01:02:17

this was concerning concerning

01:02:21--> 01:02:25

and if it were also case of the cow is something is owed

01:02:27--> 01:02:28

on behalf of the Father.

01:02:31--> 01:02:32

But we

01:02:33--> 01:02:34

are making

01:02:35--> 01:02:37

these other forms these were things

01:02:39--> 01:02:51

some people say when we look at the general principle when the giving of the fasting was allowed and hasn't been allowed to say this principle from that is that doing acts of worship

01:02:52--> 01:02:54

are separate from others in

01:02:56--> 01:03:00

this area is a shady area is an area which is weird because

01:03:02--> 01:03:03

clearly on one

01:03:04--> 01:03:05

end, he didn't speak on the other

01:03:08--> 01:03:11

to make analogies in this area.

01:03:12--> 01:03:14

So these are actually worse.

01:03:16--> 01:03:20

When it comes down to yourself, you know what you feel is

01:03:22--> 01:03:27

you feel from the different arguments. This one seems to be okay to you or

01:03:28--> 01:03:29

your understanding.

01:03:35--> 01:03:38

And your safest way is to stick to was

01:03:40--> 01:03:41

that you are sure

01:03:45--> 01:03:46

the things which

01:03:49--> 01:03:51

you are certain you do.

01:03:54--> 01:04:00

You are brilliant. The things you said didn't come on, you are certain that you won't fall into

01:04:13--> 01:04:13

it.

01:04:18--> 01:04:19

It can have an

01:04:27--> 01:04:29

important future

01:04:32--> 01:04:37

to check to see if they can it is hard for us to stop that people think

01:04:38--> 01:04:39

well,

01:04:40--> 01:04:42

what we know is that

01:04:47--> 01:04:48

even if a person

01:04:54--> 01:04:55

no

01:04:56--> 01:04:58

real Jason

01:05:01--> 01:05:03

And in the next session, we will go into this fortune teller.

01:05:06--> 01:05:09

Even if I were to just say

01:05:15--> 01:05:16

some people here today

01:05:20--> 01:05:21

are someone here today

01:05:24--> 01:05:26

father is going to pass away

01:05:32--> 01:05:33

very nicely

01:05:36--> 01:05:36

here.

01:05:41--> 01:05:45

This is just the law of coincidences.

01:05:48--> 01:05:57

And people, many other people who are involved in fortune telling you these possibilities, these generalities 100 people come to

01:05:59--> 01:06:01

all of these other people the same thing

01:06:04--> 01:06:05

to people, it actually happens

01:06:07--> 01:06:12

to people, when it actually happens to them, they will forget all of the other things that they told them.

01:06:18--> 01:06:20

Same thing happened

01:06:23--> 01:06:28

to people happens to them. Now, this is just

01:06:30--> 01:06:34

for those people, when nothing happens, no two people

01:06:35--> 01:06:37

are going to swear by that

01:06:46--> 01:06:48

the shame of each other

01:06:51--> 01:06:52

people continue to go.

01:06:55--> 01:06:56

And this is why I

01:06:59--> 01:07:02

made the punishment based on the commandments of God.

01:07:05--> 01:07:06

Because you

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

and here's something which happens.

01:07:13--> 01:07:14

This is why

01:07:16--> 01:07:16

because it

01:07:20--> 01:07:21

turns out

01:07:25--> 01:07:26

some ability

01:07:32--> 01:07:33

to stay with

01:07:36--> 01:07:37

some details.

01:07:39--> 01:07:44

People who are actually able to do it on a consecutive, consistent basis.

01:07:45--> 01:07:46

We look at

01:07:48--> 01:07:55

the world of the gym. And the next question is I will look into that world because it is also related to the basic concepts of

01:07:57--> 01:07:58

how the world

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

send another person on the ship

01:08:06--> 01:08:06

one person

01:08:11--> 01:08:11

then

01:08:16--> 01:08:20

you ask the person to do something for you. And

01:08:21--> 01:08:23

he just said to me?

01:08:25--> 01:08:26

Yes,

01:08:32--> 01:08:43

sir. I mean, Allah is the one who should be first and foremost. And knowing when you thank him, you're thanking him for

01:08:44--> 01:08:47

helping you to the agency of this person

01:08:51--> 01:08:53

to whom I get to thank you.

01:08:58--> 01:08:58

And,

01:09:01--> 01:09:05

in fact, a lot of people do. Well, I wouldn't call it

01:09:09--> 01:09:10

neglect.

01:09:15--> 01:09:18

As we tend to think the people around us

01:09:19--> 01:09:20

without thinking

01:09:23--> 01:09:29

that whenever we give any kind of talk or any kind of discussion, whatever we should,

01:09:37--> 01:09:43

ensuring that whatever mistakes you give to others, you're recognizing the thank you to alarm above all.

01:09:46--> 01:09:47

So we try to keep

01:09:48--> 01:09:52

the part of our normal conversation. It shouldn't be there

01:09:53--> 01:09:56

when we might affect the person on instant conversation with

01:09:59--> 01:10:00

them.

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

Ideally all faces

01:10:03--> 01:10:08

but the sheer comes when we send this person and we deny

01:10:10--> 01:10:11

a lot of agency
