And he's also a lecturer at the American University, divided by the remarkable personality give him this history. And we're very fortunate and pleased to have in our midst today, this very man sitting on my left our fear of wamena. Phillip, is the author of many books. In fact, today, he's one of the most prolific writers of the English language, on Islamic books. Many of his books are available outside of the house for sale during the break Sunday, when the books are available for sale. And I would encourage you to go around and look at some of these books. And perhaps some of these will catch your interest is offered, for example, the evolution of ticks, which previously was published
under a different title, the evolution of the mouse has a COVID cleaning, what are the four schools of thought that we have to follow them should be should be not, to what degree and so on, I get offered a number of other interesting books, a lot of books dealing with my own subject area dealing with galaxy, and I'm looking for example, a book we have benefited from tremendously a book entitled salvation, through repentance, and other books that what is the true religion of God and so on and so forth. He found it tough to refer to, which many of you will find to be a very interesting study on that. So without further delay, I'd like to now call upon our state to speak to us on the
obligations of $1 where does it say that we have to do that who told us to leave the house? To be not to be asked to do it? Or is it just optional if we want to do it? What exactly is this Salah, and what is the obligation? Where does that obligation come from? Where it stated our sacred thing to tell us
if I do an assignment, when I
say it, I'm Elena Nyan de la cama de la cama
Ilaha, la vaca. hula, put a shadow on the Mohammedan Abba who are full of very All praise is due to a law. And as such, we should praise Him and seek his help, because forgiveness
and seek refuge in Him from the evil which is within ourselves and evil which is also my deeds, for whom whomsoever Allah has guided in this guide, our allies allowed to go astray, none can guide their witnesses. There's no God worthy of worship Allah. Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is the last messenger of Allah
has introduced the topic is fundamentally the obligation of the hour. And we'll be looking at it from two aspects. First and foremost the general obligation, we derive from the plan and from now,
the principle that thou
is obligatory on each and every one.
It is a part and parcel of the commanding the good and
about which a lot has described
described as a gap of its distinguishing characteristics.
We have some divine a direct command with a lot
of role as a leader object
or not, it is called to the way of your Lord with wisdom as understood from the Quran, and with good speech, it is found in
verse 145. And though this is a general comment, and some may conclude from is that this is for
the people who are specially trained, have Mohammed sighs alum also made a statement, which is authentically reported to me.
And they call me whatever you have learned, even though it's the only a verse from the brand,
this is what brings it right down to the individual level. And whatever knowledge we have, we have an obligation to share it.
We have also other descriptions were in problems as well and for example, said hydrophone Manta Hanim, avant la llama so that the view is He who learns the plan and teaches it to others. It is a stop at saying the best agility who learns about
teaching it to others is an integral part of that learning to be blessed by Allah.
the obligation of sharing that knowledge passing on that knowledge has to offer
There. And this is absolutely necessary because of the fact that a lot philosophical, has made the seeking of knowledge compulsory, as you all know, someone's element fallible,
seeking knowledge is compulsory for every Muslim, why not also compulsory for those who had knowledge to pass that knowledge on, then that command would not have made sense, because it would have been putting a burden on the Muslims, which
they could not fulfill. So, it will have to work together. And this is why when summer Dyson and described this world has been heard, he said, dunya melona, the whole of this world is
an omen mafia, everything inside of it is
in that deeper life, that the remembrance of Allah when my while and what encourages you and helps you to remember a lot while in a normal
solid one who is knowledgeable, and the students that relationship discolouring, the students, the teacher and the students, passing on the knowledge gaining the knowledge
isn't showing the significance of seeking knowledge on an exam, and it is, of course, directly related to our because whatever the knowledge, when I lost my dollar to his project, had made it compulsory for us, what are the knowledge than the knowledge of the law, and what a law requires of us in our daily life is more important, this knowledge should be given priority over all other knowledge. So it is important for us to gain this knowledge. And it is compulsory for us also to pass on this knowledge for those who don't know, in order to further stress, the critical nature of passing on the knowledge because though you may be encouraged and people may still have reluctance,
etc. A lot of times Allah,
on the other side, has put a curse on those people who don't have
to show the stress to us how serious this obligation of factual knowledge is. He says, Those who do not have the knowledge, those who hide
in verse 140, we find a lot of time balancing.
In red 169 is often referred to as a woman, a woman in Manchester Metropolitan and a woman who is worse, who is worse in the sense of being more affected than the one who hide
Which is lives in from a lot of witnesses is
recognizing that commitment to a lot to Allah. In all the knowledge that comes along with a lot of things, there's nothing worse none more authentic sense of an individual. Furthermore, the apple cart is mentioned in verse 159, all the same for us.
And what the law says there in the Medina as soon as the nominal the unit will Huda divided by a novel in Article Kitab al anahola.
Verily, those who hide is what we have revealed, of the clear messages and the guidance hasn't been made clear to the people in the Scripture,
are cursed by a law and curse that all schools
are allowed to put the cursor on someone for not passing on that knowledge is indicating that it must be obligatory. Furthermore, we have 700,000 of them saying there isn't found in the authentic exam. So it's
reported i was i was on this I do my
men check in men as demo law and examine the nuts, whoever hides knowledge will be branded by a law with a branding iron from the outside.
We know as a general principle in Islam, if the Hellfire is appropriated with any actions, it means this action must be.
So we have both sides of one, it is haram for us to hide the knowledge and the other, that it is obligatory.
Now the hiding, maybe, for some reason I say, I'm not preventing people from getting the knowledge. Because of course, if somebody came to me and said to you what is Islam, if you refuse to tell them for one reason or another, then it is obviously indirectly hiding that knowledge. So the other way for you to passively hide that knowledge, where you go to work, you know,
five days a week, 255 days a year. You have a person sitting next to you and your work.
For us to deal with a person every day, I never say a word about
who has lived beside you for 1015 2025 years.
You say hi to him when you're going out,
you know, when you come in contact with him, but you don't give him anything beyond
passively hiding them. And on the Day of Judgment, that's individual, those who work with you, those who studied with you in school, those who are your neighbors, etc,
they end up going to hell,
they will be,
they will be pointing the finger to saying that such and such is next to us all those years, never went to school with us all those years, never worked with us all those years, and never said a word.
So, that obligation is something that we should not take lightly.
We should feel bad,
whenever we are not Muslim, and we don't share that knowledge, of course, the reality is that certain circumstances may not be conducive.
It is for us to try to find those circumstances, we can feel an urgency and need within ourselves to
try to find some routes to get that information across to them.
And in terms, of
course, some of us may say, Well, you know, they are Christian, or atheist or whatever, you know, and maybe my language, I can't really explain to them, you know, I'm a new person in this country, whatever, you know, I don't speak English too, well, I'm not that educated. So, the point is that we have to give them whatever,
whatever level you can say,
to find templates, which are being printed at the different our centers, or just to get that,
you know, say
whatever means that you have at your disposal, tried to convey. But of course,
the most effective, one of the most effective means is by living Islam yourself,
by being an example, by being distinguishable in the society.
Meaning that if one is here, and one has accepted all of the
trappings of the society, where one becomes indistinguishable from the non Muslims, then is it difficult.
If you're doing the same as they're doing and living just like this, it's like one of them. The different
elements that matter somebody out in the morning, whoever anything to wherever people becomes like them. So
in so many different circumstances,
that we should, in our outward dress,
for example, distinguish ourselves from
it was a custom of Arabian people of Arabia, who were starving, everybody was the gaffers
so on and said, we're happy
to distinguish yourself.
Similarly, we have principles that we can address,
in order that we become distinguishable in the society, and this distinction,
oftentimes serves as a means of introducing Islam to this
they will ask why are you wearing this? Why do you look like this right, you know, it becomes a means to introduce subject to them. But of course, the outer, act big
as it is important, the inner aspect is even more important that we as individuals,
exemplify Islamic character.
Because Southern Mohammed was a lump. summarize the essence of the dean. In terms of Islamic characters. What he said in the novel is to live within them Academy
to summarize, the essence of the dnn for character.
Rarely, I was only sent to compete for you, the highest
character traits, morality,
morality are described and identified by
in the land and by profits on
the character of the believer becomes an evil in and of itself. And we know much of Islam was spread to the grave
Part of the world who was a character looked into lent to these different countries, as traders.
in the initial stages of Islam left Arabia, there was direct military confrontation with the leading empires of the day by advantium, Persia, India, direct cars, because these, the doors for conveying Islam into these areas will flow to people who are oppressed, and the ruler did not want the message to get to these people, because it represented freedom and the toppling of these.
So, direct trouble was the only means by which to open the door for dialysis continued where that becomes necessary, then he had applied, but where the doors are open, people were able to go into the trade of traders, then it wasn't necessary. So Muslims went out into two agents in many parts of Africa, just carrying their goods, selling their goods, etc. But the interaction with the left on the people to whom they sold it was such that it's hard for people who want to know what it is that made.
Because they know,
you know, in Medina had addressed the the traders there and said
traders are criminals, because of the nature, the nature of people in your selling products, to want to deceive people, you make your product out to be what it is, you know, you throw it up, you're trying to sell you want to get this across to the defects. And if you try to hide it, this is the nature of trade.
Whereas Islam is opposed to all of the principles of trade for good.
So if you have good damage, it's your duty to tell your customers to damage
traffic and get a better product. I'm sending a cheap flight ticket, because I you know, I don't know if that is up landfilling.
So by having this kind of approach, where the traders dealt with these people in a way, they had not come in contact with me in that way. This left an impression on them.
So, it's very important for us to utilize all of the different channels,
whether it be the media, media, news, literature, etc.
But most important that our character
in the appropriate Allah,
people may come with many different questions for many different directions.
And they want to know, why Muslim women are covered?
Why is their polygamy? Usually these are the type of subtopics that they want to talk about, you know, why do you guys have to have four wives.
So, oftentimes, this is where you have to dig back in for the draft to go. But
you should not forget
that the goal is to bring them
for the essence of the message,
as we know, from Santa Monica, and while in New Jersey, he told him as you're coming to our people, from the people of the book, so the first thing that you tell them is to make a long one.
So this is what you have to do, whether we explain about that they want to know about polygamy, and they have to give them some tables. No, we don't talk about this, you only want to talk about this. No, we have to address the topic.
But we tried to turn that topic I used as a means of getting them to,
because this is the essence.
When dealing with Christians,
of course, many of us may not be versed in the
text in the Bible and be able to show them in their own texts that look, you know, even Jesus recorded your own gospels or points was pointing towards, you know, one guy, he was worshipping God and
the knowledge to get across to them, to be able to hope for them.
But we can still appeal to their basic
The basic sense of always vibe
I've always learned
we can approach them from the point of view that
to somebody, they're going to become gods.
And they will say
that I can become gods.
If somebody says yes, one day I'm going to become gods you tell them
the first week the sense of self delusion that you really can't communicate to this person anymore. Because Allah, yeah, you're dealing with people who have some sense, you know, it adds up a lot of
ignorance people are so Mind blown up in their own, you know, delusions of delusions at the top.
For those who have some level of intelligence or political reasons, and you can show them that they recognize that they cannot become gods, you ask them why? Because our man, you know, human being man, you cannot become gods. When you say, well, was Jesus. Amen?
Was as he was a member. So then what do you think it is that you cannot become God? Because you are a man and you just said Jesus is a man
can't become God, he couldn't be God,
for the general person, and oftentimes, they never even think if then Amanda never put the pieces together. definity thing is always confusing them anyway, right? So just make it down to the sample level.
You know, what,
we can give some simple reasoning without necessarily having to memorize which portions of the Bible and horses and methods because sometimes, actually, this approach sometimes has its own dangers, because it ends up being your interpretation and their interpretation. You know, they argue you bring this verse, They bring another version, you know, sometimes we can get very, very complicated, depending on who you run into. So just the average Joe Christian was hardly read the Bible in on so you know, the way the truth and the life of work, you know, from the Bible, okay, if you can pick him up with some of the other things with some of these people have read, you know, and they know
that Bible, well, does that bring in these verses that are being held there versus, you know, what have you and it ends up being your interpretation. And
so, one of the, what I found, from our experience, one of the easier ways to try to go to them,
you know, God gave us a real reason for our purpose.
I mean, this is part of what distinguishes us from the rest of the animals, the ability to reason to understand things to come to conclusions.
So I mean, part of that reasoning is, like what I mentioned here, of course, they may come back to you to the point where those who believe that God can do anything.
And the common response, right, so they believe that and of course, it does say in the fine in the law.
Right, Eli's Able to do all things,
however, you clarify to them. And when you say, when God says that he can do all things, we're talking about all things that are consistent with him being God, not including the absurdities, the impossibilities the things that will make God no longer God.
Because if you can just reason that to them.
You believe that one of the characteristics of God is that
he is the one.
So somebody wants to take you, can God be born. But he just said, one of the characteristics of God is that he is not born.
Though you're saying, Yeah, you can do all things you cannot including being born in it. Because it means there was a time when he didn't exist.
And if there was a time when you didn't exist, for him to come into a decision, somebody had to make an exit. So there is somebody else who's ready to garden, I think
this is where you end up. So the point is that you can show them from what they themselves believe
them from what is known to them, what is confused in their mind.
In the same way you are saying that God cannot be born.
We're also saying that the creator cannot become a creation.
Because creation means
what is in need of a failure. To be a creature of God. To be a creature means that you have to be someone to create you. But God became in his creation, that it means that he is now in need of a creator.
This is an impossibility and absurdity.
And it falls in line with the general
philosophical argument of the atheist sit opposite just like to draw on Christian philosophers. I would say to them, okay, you believe God is able to do I think you believe God can make a difference.
And of course, it's a problem for them.
Like I said, you can do anything, including having a son, being a man.
that he can make a song which is too heavy for him to live.
Meaning that there is something greater than God.
Because they because they've accepted uncertainties, because they've accepted the uncertainty that God could become a situation, God could have a son, and then are obliged to accept the absurdity that God
can make a syllogism
that God could become a mosquito.
Just show them how ridiculous that type of thinking is.
Put down your book about my book, and
God gave us that.
And he'll be calling on the natural understanding that they have, you know, the law said,
when you create an Adam equals from Adam, all of his descendants, we ask them,
before they ever came on the earth,
am I lucky Lord, and because said hello.
Without a doubt, so, they have a an instinctual understanding of God,
if you can take put aside the confusions that are there and just bring them back to that, that natural understanding, then these things will make sense to them.
And they will end up telling like how I thought it was strange Anyway, you know, how Jesus could have been God.
You know, I never really understood it.
I had doubts about
the church is out.
So did our
obligatory. At the same time,
we tried to focus on
the poor issues with his oneness,
the oneness and uniqueness in his oneness.
Because very important for us not to stop at oneness, because sometimes, he says, Well, you know, we focus on the oneness of Allah, of course, in the end, because we say, we believe in one God is only three and one, but two to one. And if you go to the Hindus, they also believe that there's one drachma overall, from which everything was created, and he pervades everything. He goes all in with various religions, they do ultimately have a belief in one. So when you're talking about one
perspective, you have to stress to them the uniqueness of this one.
So when they come back to us, with egg series,
to explain how it is a goddess three and one, you know, like an egg, having a shell feel like, I just want to send a little, you're talking about an egg, we're talking about God
making God like an egg.
It's not unique anymore.
Or they have the tree theory,
where she has branches as a function, it has roots, again,
our makeup, the tree, the thing of talking about a tree here and talking about God,
or they have the same theory in water exists as ice. liquid.
Again, you're talking about water, talking about God, a god is unique is one. This is a point that we threaten the unique attributes are not shared in the infinite nature not shared by human beings. This is what we try to bring them to. Now the other aspects of the application of dollars I'd like to
present. And I think
this side of it
is very, very important for us in North American context, because
what are we addressing here is
the situation that most people find themselves in this country, in that they have migrated here. from
other parts of the world, the vast majority are a large portion of the Muslim community represents those who have migrated here, and the other portion, those who have accepted Islam here. Now, we have a particular verse in the south.
This is one that we should also reflect on. When we're looking at the issues and the responsibilities of balance. We're in a lot more balance.
In the Medina takahama eco bollini I'm putting him follow FEMA Aluko number for the happiness follow alum token Abdullah for the hygiene he has.
The honey number was that
when the angel sickness or the Rosa die in sin against themselves, they say
In what's right for you, they replied, you're weak and oppressed in the earth. They say, We're the large Earth not spacious enough for you to emigrate to drop those who find their abode in hell.
is again, another severe wanting to live.
Living in a minority situation where
the majority population is in
the laws of society, oblige Muslims
to give up certain aspects of
So when a person gives up an aspect of Islam, he abandons some Africans
are referred to as self oppression bollini and
affecting themselves life, because when we disobey Allah,
we are affecting a lot. We're finding a lot, we are harming ourselves.
We are harming ultimately, we're the ones who suffer the consequences. So a lot of requests with us being in a state of self oppression.
People When the angels take their goals and
danger would ask them, what was your situation right? Do you like this? And they will say that we were weak, helpless
and dangerously applied to them wasn't a lot of patience.
And Allah goes on to say that those people who die in that state during the day were able to make the drought,
but died in that state of self oppression, that their abode will be held.
On the basis of this verse and other verses,
someone that follows
the past unanimously held that
of the land of the belief to the land.
And that's the main address to leave the land.
And to go to the land of the disbelievers was also
of course, there is Hades, we're talking about cinema,
as narrated by
fallenness I was I was
Well, I can we had
that. The day of conquest of the conquest of tikkun olam was the conquest of Mecca.
And there's only
the only thing remaining was jihad,
having the intention to make more activity being involved.
However, as Khalid explains,
this negation of the drug, was the negation of the obligation of
Medina, Southern negation of
the negation of Israel to Medina, Medina was appointed his relatives compulsory for Muslims. When
stablished in South Korea, it became comfortable since the naked dress to Medina.
Until the concept of once Mecca was conquered, then it was necessary anymore for Muslims to leave those areas of
federal control by the disbelievers. And also Medina
to frankly to establish it to get the message out.
Because we have other statements, for example, that one we have narrated by Mario,
and if you said authentically narrated
that his euro will not cease until he told us our retention.
Well, I can put your tobacco
and tobacco and up until the sun rises.
But he is that he drew up renamed
until the sun rises in the way.
in understanding that relationship to the situation that listen for example, hearing loss
we have to point out that for me
to be satisfied with this life,
giving an American Canadian life
nice house, nice car,
money in your pocket,
wearing. At the same time your children are going outside of Islam, the influence of the societies, throughout your home route, your workplace, etc, you have abandoned so many aspects of Islam, that state of affairs is a current state of affairs COVID in state of affairs, and one who dies in that state a lot alive, promise him or her.
And this is what we need to convey to the masses to wake them up to this reality that they are on the edge of the Hellfire
one is involved in establishing
So this is where the dialogue comes in again, at another critical point.
If we're involved in establishing Islam here, in other words, you're serving as a means of conveying Islam, we are involved in Dawa, if we are involved in Dawa here, then that justifies our being here, because somebody has to take people
have got the duty to carry the message to the people.
But everybody needs you out of the country and left no one behind them of course in the message.
So, it is necessary for people to be here.
without dialogue, become again an obligation on Muslims to justify their presence here.
To justify their presence here for the
establishment of Islam and conveyance of Islam, to those around us and of course, involves establishment of schools and the different institutions that are necessary for the Muslim community to survive. And ultimately, in my view,
hit our buttons on
acts of internal hindrance,
acts of internal hindrance, where Muslims in Canada or United States, one province or one state, choose a particular area, which has the greatest potential for growth and congregate, hydrate area, tablets, a community, a real community, not a community with only needs and sees its members on Fridays. So often, we run into each other who might
never leave and go back to individual life
as portrayed by a program which is to be in America, Little House on the ferry, as a classical example of the style of life.
Every good person an island in the nonsense.
That lifestyle is hated.
Islam teaches that a lot of support is there with
Islam invites us to congregational prayers 2527 times.
So lots of you had to perform by yourself need
to do mission needs organization gathering distributing all of Islamic principles have Zukin them, community that people should be working as a community that depresses that people are faced with now in terms of dealing with rebel interest for purchasing homes or purchasing cars or whatever. This is
a product of not being a community
not having other members of the community combining finance to make possible
different social economic activities which are necessary.
These are all symptoms of a bigger problem, which is that
it is very important
to address these issues.
With regard to the dollar,
the obligation of Gao on each and every individual obligation of Gao on the community, to address them, from the point of view of justifying our presence here and
having a responsibility before a lot of the Day of Judgment, not to hide whatever knowledge is, in the years
that each and every one of us fear,
an internal drive and internal
which makes us one side to convey the word of
wisdom along to those around us.
Salad is basically summarizes the essence of the presentation on the obligation of Dawa and this is really introducing the topic, you look at the characteristics of the die. This is further introducing the topic, and in the future lectures will be going into more detail aspects of the Dow.
below. At this point, I'd like to invite your brothers and sisters of undertake questions both in written form, and in oral form, I will give preference to the written questions. In other words, if somebody is taking the things to write, then I will make sure we get them read as far as time permits. So read out the questions and I will answer them. Let your questions reflect the fact that you're listening to the lecture. In other words, let's see your questions on the topic. legit question show that you've been thinking about the issues raised in work or clarification. Let us take a test from both of
them ask the first question
can be written or it can be oral.
As we're entering, otherwise, it will sound to them like one and
a half hear.
Some people say that when we go to give power to the system, we should not report a call to their go fishing for anything out of the Bible for example. So, what is the clarification on this point should be to be not how to get the dollar for the system.
This is the narration in which problems are found. Omar is reading a portion of the
And the farmer the fellow was affected him and told him that Prophet Musa was here he was following.
So on the basis of that,
it was a fun time scholars or some individuals have concluded that we should not use
presenting to them. However, we have to look at the context in which
he said that
indicating to him that it moves I was hearing that follow you meaning that whatever is contained in those papers as you're reading, it doesn't contain any guidance.
You learn what I have already given you
do not go to these books to see guidance, there is no knowledge and guidance in there for you.
Because it moves out here who is the origin
he would follow me
I have the final method.
when we look in for example, in the in the band, we see a lot of referring to the fact that in the books of the people in the Jews their problems are mentioned. So Allah is referring to that book referring to cases in that book right and mentioned
it is quite reasonable for us to try to find a lot of static content
to try and find those places where there is indication
because they are today unaware
that there is mention of it.
And that doesn't contradict the principle. Which problems are
In sizing Omar for reading,
because that was in reference to seeking knowledge, tried to gain knowledge and to apply. You had certain groups that have appeared amongst listens another group like the hand Far, far along around for a while,
during the 80s and 90s in a way they were taking text out of the Bible and interpreting it and implementing it and applying it. Otherwise, they would go into the Bible for knowledge. Of course they would. They deviated and they deviated.
that is the bottom line, we cannot go to those books for guidance. Why? Because the books have become corrupted.
And whatever is in there, which is guidance for us is already established in the brain. And we don't need to go through these look for guidance.
Because we will likely to lie to them.
So, when they only use it
so we can show them a look. Even Papa Jesus, Prophet Moses, Prophet Abraham prayed in the same way, as mentioned,
using the book to confirm what is in the plan for them.
There is no harm.
This is not an innovation, in the sense that earlier scalability, you read the book of infinia has a lot of feelings. Abdullah
Ali Mandela, he didn't just look at the major work with invaded India. He draws sections from the Gospels, etc. and a number of various colors. And then the first principle is the principle of utilizing your book as a secondary source to support Quranic teachings and injunctions or laws. For example, you know, like today in a society where people are, you know, accepting homosexuality is and becomes sort of like a norm, no, people are not wanting to question it. You know, we have a pair of standard dramas and his stance against homosexuality, students are looking to
adultery, you know, the idea, you know, that led to the adulterer. I think this is barbaric. You know, these are crazy, that's killing people over adultery.
Adultery has become commonplace today.
It's no longer considered a crime, and in most circles,
so when we take the stance, we can put them in your own backyard, Deuteronomy and Leviticus, whatever this is saying that this is solely another. This is part of the chickens. This is Jesus hollowed Prophet Moses.
So we're not introducing something new. So they say that women can cover themselves up, they didn't, you know, covering the women's oppression of the women.
Derek is mentioned here that women should cover their heads, and they come up to the heads uncovered and did that the other is only supporting and supporting evidence to the physicians.
And of course, some of them, when you use evidence from them, they may come back to you and say, Well, why do you want to get this one? And I think that's the other.
I do want to take part of the book. And
we have other things in here too, as you're saying you don't have
to point out to them that we recognize that something of divine revelation remains in discussion. Not that these pictures are themselves divine revelation, no, there is a much that human beings have helped put in there change and distorted according to our own talents. A lot of people don't have
tell him a lot even though I do a lot of
work on places to change the meaning that they'll do it.
And you're on salary you can bring evidence.
So therefore, it is no longer reliable sources, primary sources, but what is true in them, they have been confirmed behind and
this is what we can
utilize to clarify. So just in summary, we're saying that it is permissible to use evidence from the text from the history to support Islamic principles, but not as a primary source, meaning that your data is coming quicker than from the
DAO should be coming from the Quran, from the Sunnah. And the book is supported.
Using again, the wisdom logic, which were taught in the band itself.
Hello, we have a number of questions on the topic of sales. And activity, in some cases ask you these questions because we do have a number of sessions on the same topic, and we didn't cover this topic extensively.
And then we have a number a number of other subject area is subject by various questions. So, first question concerning the draft, if a person becomes a Muslim, prominent Muslim country, because that person makes a dress to enlarge to a Muslim country, or can that person stay with the Islamic community and the non atomic context. In other words, that simplifies the day somebody in Canada embracing that that pagan numerals have to migrate to a Muslim country, or to that new page and Muslims, say, among the Muslims in Canada,
when we take the issue of 100,000, individual level, people have to look into their own lives. And
if they find that they can hardly practice Islam, there's so many things preventing them from practicing. The so called community that they accepted Islam within is not really a community event, it's only a private community. The reality is that the rest of the week is how the community people are scattered living their own individual life. So they find themselves there, there's not just support systems, and they're not there for them.
And they have the means to leave and go to a lawyer, they're Muslim, wherever they are to practice Islam. And of course, you know, there is no Islamic country,
meaning that they are applying Islamic laws across the board in the world today. And there are no Islamic countries, putting their arms out opening open and saying public and come and do that. Okay, so we know that the reality is reality, let's not delude ourselves into thinking there's any Islamic country out there, and halifa and all these other things. It is reality. But there are countries where the majority of people are moving to different degrees, they are applying Islamic law in those societies, it may vary from country to country. So for us to choose one, which is the best that we can find, and to emigrate there. And say, as long as the law permits us to stay there, then it is
better than remaining in that non Islamic Society where one feels oneself being sucked in by the society, one feels one facing lots of pressure.
But if that person accepts Islam in that fragmented community, by finds himself or herself a part of an effort to establish Islam, and to give the dollar that is perfectly legitimate to them,
they don't have the need. Because how many people have the need to pack up and just a mass alarm for Canada are not going to get off to the Middle East, or some other part of the world where
so many people don't have that means don't have the ability.
So those people, obviously, the obligation is not on them until they have the means. And it is for them then tried to find other people who are conscious, and tried to work with those people to try to establish some form of community that is
satisfied. You know, this is what their responsibilities would be
inviting you, if you have some kind of follow up question on the one that says just investing. We can we can take, we can take
And we have a number of systems here. And I think the most
favorite things that I think
now some of the questions and history I'm going to leave aside for the moment because many of them will ask to repeat what he's already said in the lecture. I'm going to leave them at the moment I have two here which are very similar as a single woman without a monogram to travel with How can she make a dress to a Muslim abode and similar, similarly can a single systemic cater in order to pay per diem without a mocha
or mushrooms do not want her to me
or my husband do not have a valid reason for her to see.
As I said,
the hit ratio is one of obligations especially well one.
And able to a woman she is single for GM. She accepts Islam as she's on her own.
He's in a situation where
Whether she stays where she is, or she goes someplace else, she's still going to end up in the same position of being a single Muslim woman with
zero. So the point is that
what is best for her to stay in a situation where the danger of the societies still breaking and destroying her, her religion, the religion of our children, for example, she comes in order for her to go to a society where at least he can practice Islam. They're Muslims, their children go to school, they interact with other Muslim, obviously, the second choice is a better choice. It's a bit of a situation to be in. Because there's no community here to protect her anyway. If there was an established community at practicing, established real communities, where there is a leader of that community, who become her family, who will become the guardian for her without the Guardian, it will
say no, don't travel.
But it says lots of communities, it's fragmented, there's no leadership, no nothing. And there's nobody to protect her anyway, what did she say just because it's the same.
Legally speaking, it's the same. So he then has to look is her child is going to take her into a position where she can better practice Islam.
if she has any
more, we have the general rule about a woman traveling without a Muslim, that's in the circumstance where community exists, where Muslim communities exist, when you're in a situation which is, which is
like a sideline to the people on their own, then to talk about the issues of traveling without a Muslim out of context.
Similarly, if, for example, a young sister, her parents,
realize what the deal is, and Obama to the dean, etc, etc. and her parents
are out of it. They're not practicing Islam, they're happy to live here. And you know, this is what they want.
And she feared for her Dean here for her to travel without their permission, without a Muslim to say readin becomes.
But if the parents are practicing, etc, and they are providing protection for her, etc, etc, then he should not travel without the accompany.
As far as possible to get more preference for the questions which are more directly related to the subject area that we already covered. And I've seen a couple of here on the borderline, because it touches upon you know, the currency on us and living in North Korea and going to stay and so on. The first of the two classes a tip if one children are not listening, and they are doing things that want to curse upon this is the first also upon the parents, or parents. And the second question is, if the children are all married, and they live on on Atlantic life, what the parent feels responsible for them on the Day of Judgment, would Allah punish the parents for what two killers are
When Prophet Muhammad
was going to make
a profit woman This is
more of a child and that they
had for the south, young south.
But the word is for you.
As a Muslim,
raises a child, Islamic,
take the child for half an hour to pray, you know, all the different practices of Islam,
the parent gets the reward.
Because the child is hasn't reached puberty is that we say the majority that responsibility for actions are now on them.
Similarly, if a child is born in a non Islamic circumstance,
and the child is raised,
as a non Muslim, believers Catholic,
the child does not carry the sin of having been raised that way.
A lot of destiny that the family they were raised,
as long as they have these mature
there's no sin on them. But the tune is on
beyond the parents, raise the child.
This is a basic principle.
Those parents raise their children as believers to the best of their abilities.
They were not able to make good drugs and they find other circumstances to provide for them. They did what they could here. And then the children went astray after they became a toy
Their deviation will not fall back on,
the parents had the opportunity to make a drill. And they didn't.
They chose to stay here
in an Islamic circumstance ready to see the children being corrupted, etc.
But because of the,
because of the money, they were making the comfortable life they were living, they chose to stay. And yet, they will carry a portion of the sin of the deviation.
identify all the marriages that are in our marriage
In terms of the Niger is one thing, once the children leave,
you know, because in this society, their child reaches the age of 16, etc. And he or she says, I want to do my own thing. You know, that's it, you have no control over them anymore. Whether they're from that age onwards, even if they get married, or whatever, you know, you don't have control over them anymore. So
that child, if they are deviant,
as a result of the foundation of deviation if you gave them and you carry some of this in alpha, because as far as the physical,
whoever buys the goods from them and send that to nothing happen, however, that's a good way
to get the reward of everyone will follow that way, until the last day without decreasing everyone. But if he begins and evenly, he raised his children in an anatomic way, he allows the corruption in his home, and
then he will carry the sin of everyone will follow that way, not only the marriage, but the children of the marriage and their children.
Because he is the one who put them on that.
But he will tell you the same as everyone who follows a carpenter.
Maybe don't bear for us to be here for those
that have our fit that will be confined to
Delaware. So we have to get Dallas and unless and only if not, then what form of power must be attached to the Muslim? And then a related question actually related, if they're the same obligation to give power to members of the Nation of Islam,
or any other religion, sex or persons whose happy that is not?
What is the best way since they believe that they are missing out? So we're looking at the question of whether we have to give power to only not looking for also so looking a lot about me and others, who tells us nothing of Islam as various
other persons who may not have the right to lead considered himself or herself Muslim, what is the best way to get out to these people and delete have
traditionally, our refers to inviting people to Islam. And this generally is understood as inviting non Muslim Islam.
When we invite a Muslim to practice Islam correctly, this is how
it is giving them good advice. We can also call it out in a general sense that it involves inviting people but it's really not environment to Islam, but inviting them to practice Islam correctly. So it becomes really more nefarious advice to them to correct the misconceptions or the malpractices that they have.
And that is also a part of the DEA requirements, you know, when the Rockefeller Center didn't have to have a religion, good advice. And they asked to whom all messenger of allies said to the leaders of the Muslims into the general election,
the aim of
to the leaders as well as to the common people.
So this is part of that. See how fulfilling that obligation of advising harmless endeavors, you know, in terms of how it is one advice, of course,
it has to be in a way which
people can hear.
We cannot approach them
attacking their disease directly. This is when you're dealing on a one on one basis, on a one on one basis to dealing with
However, the Nation of Islam, there's no point in calling that person a Kaffir. And nor do
they consider themselves to be Muslim. But in the general ruling with regards to the Nation of Islam, they are disbelievers
with no if ands and that's about it, anybody has any doubts here, as a nation of islam delivers, then you know, that point can be clarified in more detail, but the reality is that they are just delivered in the fullest sense of the word.
They believe that Allah came in the person of a man
they call Prahlad Mohammed who thought Elijah Muhammad and appointed him as a prophet them along, I mean all of that, more than enough statements of
dealing with somebody like this
one needs to use
language, which will not
antagonize them or run them away in the first few moments,
we have to try to reason to them, so we try to try and find a common ground with them, and discuss them from that side to get to the bigger issue
with regards to a law,
and that obligation to call them damage obligations of politicians and Jews and
who are not deviated to the point that they have left Islam
but are having some concepts are from faculty which is incorrect. Again, we have responsibility to try to reach out to them to help them have a proper understanding, to cut them off, to negate them, to burn them, this has nothing to do with them, this is error. I know it has become very popular in these times, you know, where the principle of Hodgetts
abandoning or avoiding
those who innovate, you know, as has become
practice amongst Muslims. Right? A lot of people who are themselves know falling to the ground. And some as an artist was understood by the early generations
to find that breaking era,
the generation of scholars I kept realizing was old and others of that generation, who is a thought an innovator
coming on one side of the road, they would go off on the other side of the road,
it would have nothing to do with them. It went in the back of hands for them to try to toss it into their fingers. Luckily.
brothers, let's hold this up and say, okay, there it is. These people we know are innovators who have these innovative ideas and how we can deal with them, I'm not going to don't sit next to them get out of this cycle. But you have to look at the context in which
it's worth the time.
Islam was fully established, the Muslims were the majority, there were a few innovators popping up amongst them. So when these innovators pop up with the ideas, they cut them off, they didn't allow that idea to spread, and they executed them and yet
those interested in statistics, then
in our time, we're living in a minority situation, where the vast we got kids and Muslims involved in some deviation, innovation, you know, are you allowed to say I have nothing to do with this person.
And this was isolated over ideas that
are going to block and having you for an hour.
So it is not serving the purpose that it serves.
Our time is different than salad will tell you to apply the sense of the
Muslim amongst commit adultery to say that there's nothing to kill them
as well. In these times, our circumstance is not applicable.
Because we don't have authority. And the repercussions of such actions on the community will be so great, that it is greater than the benefit that we're trying to achieve and very defensible in Islamic law is in trying to achieve a benefit you create greater harm.
That benefit is not worth achieving.
In trying to create to to to attain
the kind of benefits you are going to produce
greater harm to sellers world that you should leave.
So, similarly, the issue of hedges is not applicable today when we're dealing amongst Muslims etc. We have to keep doors open, how can you reach people close the door.
And, you know, your photo and photo realism photo movies, I don't want to hear anything from you.
And of course, they don't want to hear anything from us. And I think decide how to
how to bring them to 100 Health collect in the States.
And if we are to apply this principle, as you have undertaken their belief checklist, you have to say, they've been helped to do that. So much of the great scholars of the past, because you're not going to find a color of the past who didn't make a mistake.
They're not going to find one who didn't make a mistake, I will tell you that it was permissible for you to drink,
were were intoxicating, alijah, most, as long as you don't drink it to the point of intoxication.
Based on the information that was available to students, I will use a thermometer Danny rejected that
when they came across a hadith about intoxication, and also forgiveness more than most
abandon that you
had to do.
If anybody stood up now amongst us and tried to propagate that, what are we going to say about
trying to be
Because no one
even the Sahaba
when Mr. Malik was have
a follow, it's a hobby and everything he does, will be on the correct path.
But we cannot follow blindly
as a hobby, and how are we going to
justify cutting off
people because of some mistakes they have made.
So this is just from the Hitman the wisdom of Darwin, that we keep doors open for communication, we don't cut people avoid labeling, to the point where we can no longer communicate.
We only have about less than five minutes left per festive period. And we do have a number of seconds.
If you can be very brief with these ones that will follow now, and this relates to now What's your answer? Are we allowed to go with tilaka? public for $1? And are they people or
this fundamentally was formed in India, with the goal of bringing people back to the market.
The people who found it
maybe had certain errors in some aspects of their knowledge. So these errors are reflected in their power. That's the intention.
The general thrust is to promote Islam to promote Islam among
our intention should be to see errors in their way
to invite them to
I don't have a problem. Personally, I don't have a problem with going with some of the people
and in the course of dealing with them, advising them not just going and sitting and not saying anything, but going and advising them
if a person came into islamically and this is what was available for them to go with them and get the practices of Islam in terms of how to see how to eat and how to do the best they could things and keeping people in touch with proper way and
really go hand in that
as long as they keep an open mind. And so the key is he held the knife.
So very good.
But at the same time, there is harm.
If a person is ignorant
It is necessary for them, if there are other opportunities for knowledge to continue to seek knowledge and to improve and grow.
If that is all that is available to them, I would never tell them stay at home.
If in your area, the only people who are doing anything islamically
I would say, take from them.
But remember, you have a foundation of God and from the
inside to get evidence for whatever is being given to you.
Our duty is to advise them in the error to work with them with a good. And what you will find is that the demand is going to vary from place to place.
In some areas, depending on the background, they come, they may have bigger areas and others. If you go I know, he says you have a book.
Gemini we carry publications in there. But also in many other books that are available on the market collections and social now we've had some publications, you can find this and
we are going to reject the book because there are publications that we have recently that we'll have to fill aside from anything else.
The point is that we try to get as much clarification as possible, get to what is correct, and take all the good.
Similarly, with a dramatic book, the center, there is a lot of good information there. But of course, there's some deviations certain things are questionable. And these things are difficult. In some areas, for example, in in the Middle East, in Emirates, Saudi Arabia, they don't make any
money there is
a standard report,
but still does have a week Have you seen it, but
very few habits such as a common book
and their attitude with regard to certain issues of Kedah know maybe much more firm and in keeping with your general way which is understood by the seller.
So, we can say that they tend to be more correct.
Whereas in other areas and other you may find people are more affected by the backgrounds that are coming out. So, in summary, I would say that the there is error in the lineage of the loss of lives, but not such error, I take them out of the genes
that it is not possible for us to work with them. We should keep the doors open to work with them unless is good. We should give them advice where they have committed
only have a few minutes now before the AMA will be called and then the sum will be 10 minutes later after the event. So that just gives us enough time now to get prepared. I'd like to thank you all for your patience with me. I'd like to thank him for his involvement and for giving us time to share with us his knowledge. We do have a number of very interesting questions here the answers to which we would have learned tremendously from we don't have sufficient time I'd asked you if you didn't get your question answered in this section to receive the assessment and other session. I hope that one of the other speakers will be able to address your question for you because that's a little
