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

Due to a lot of peace and blessings be an Islamic prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and all those who follow the path of life until the last day.

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

The topic of today's quote

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

is that the struggle between

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

truth and falsehood.

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

The Imam mentioned

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

this struggle,

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

though we may find ourselves deeply involved in it,

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

and

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

in our involvement,

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

tend to

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

lose track of the roots of this struggle.

00:01:07--> 00:01:12

The fact is, that the struggle is as ancient as mankind,

00:01:14--> 00:01:21

not a new struggle, what we are facing, those of us who strive to uphold the truth,

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

these difficulties

00:01:28--> 00:01:36

are not something which have appeared for the first time they've been around from the time of agony

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

when a lot created Adam,

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

and

00:01:42--> 00:01:44

he played him and his wife died as

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

specified for them.

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

They were not to eat a particular tree.

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

They were tricked by Satan.

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

And

00:02:04--> 00:02:08

this is the foundation of the relationship between

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

Satan and the satanic forces.

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

The

00:02:17--> 00:02:18

soldiers

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

of falsehood,

00:02:21--> 00:02:27

and all who would try to uphold the truth, the commandments of God,

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

which has been revealed to us through the prophets.

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

We know that when Satan is

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

commanded

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

to bow to Adam,

00:02:43--> 00:02:45

along with the angel,

00:02:47--> 00:02:52

among whom he was there, he was not an angel in himself.

00:02:54--> 00:02:59

He was in fact, from another order of creation, known as the jinn.

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

When he was commanded, allow the angels to bow

00:03:05--> 00:03:12

in recognition of the place of honor, which Allah had placed Adam

00:03:13--> 00:03:20

and all who would follow him about mankind in relationship to the rest of creation.

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

The angels doubt

00:03:25--> 00:03:26

because

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

they

00:03:28--> 00:03:30

did not have free will.

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

They only did what they were commanded.

00:03:37--> 00:03:40

whereas in the case of Satan, was named

00:03:41--> 00:03:43

non Arab because he believed

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

he had a free choice

00:03:47--> 00:03:49

to obey or to disobey.

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

And he chose to disobey.

00:03:55--> 00:03:55

claiming

00:03:56--> 00:03:59

that he was superior to Adam.

00:04:01--> 00:04:07

Because a lie created him from fire, and created Adam, from clay.

00:04:09--> 00:04:10

And this, in fact,

00:04:12--> 00:04:12

is

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

because

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

PayPal was not superior.

00:04:23--> 00:04:32

A law had commanded him to bow to either a law had informed him by that command, that Adam was in fact superior

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

and Satan

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

was superior.

00:04:40--> 00:04:42

However, his pride

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

in himself

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

led him

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

to claim the small foot of his superiority and thereby disobey God and cause himself to be cursed.

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

You know, the last day

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

that we have

00:05:08--> 00:05:09

password,

00:05:10--> 00:05:13

being a product of pride

00:05:15--> 00:05:23

according to the Islamic system, then pride as a particularly despise, status.

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

Pride

00:05:26--> 00:05:27

because

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

this LED Satan in the first place

00:05:33--> 00:05:37

to uphold the falsehood of his superiority and disobey God

00:05:39--> 00:05:42

and damn himself to help.

00:05:44--> 00:06:01

Naturally, this must be something which is not its danger is not limited to that particular time. But it is something of a universal danger. As such, we find proper Bahamas in South warning

00:06:03--> 00:06:10

by saying that no one who has a mustard seed worth of pride in his heart will enter Paradise.

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

No one who has a mustard seeds worth of pride in in thought, will enter

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

is

00:06:24--> 00:06:28

the something that each and every one of us has to struggle to remove.

00:06:29--> 00:06:45

Because it's very easy for us to develop feelings of pride, whether because of some skill, we have developed money we have, you know, status in society, family background, race,

00:06:47--> 00:07:02

whatever people have feelings of pride which come out of these circumstances, which in fact, are not really a product of their own efforts.

00:07:04--> 00:07:06

Now, according to God,

00:07:08--> 00:07:12

no one chooses the family in which he is born,

00:07:13--> 00:07:15

or the tribe or the climb

00:07:16--> 00:07:17

to which we belong.

00:07:18--> 00:07:21

This is according to the destiny of Allah.

00:07:22--> 00:07:27

So, it cannot really be a source of pride.

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

And this

00:07:35--> 00:07:37

pride in ancestry,

00:07:38--> 00:07:44

lead the outcome of the Prophet Muhammad, Allah, I will call it who knew

00:07:46--> 00:07:53

that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was a prophet of God, because he raised him

00:07:54--> 00:07:56

and he knew him to be true.

00:07:57--> 00:07:58

And he experienced

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

some of the miracles which God has given Prophet Muhammad.

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

Yet, on his deathbed,

00:08:09--> 00:08:15

when the Prophet begged him to declare his belief in a law,

00:08:18--> 00:08:26

he chose instead to remain attached to the beliefs of his four parents.

00:08:27--> 00:08:35

His other relatives, were there telling him, are you going to give up the belief, the belief above water?

00:08:36--> 00:08:39

Are you saying there are wrong there are misguided

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

loss

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

of you know, pride in your family.

00:08:48--> 00:08:49

And he chose

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

in spite of his knowledge of the truth,

00:08:54--> 00:09:01

he chose based on tribe fat foods, which also again, damned him to the hellfire.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

So you can see that

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

tribe

00:09:09--> 00:09:24

is something which is really despised in Islam, because of the falsehood that it produces the concept which it promotes, which are fundamentally against the concept of Islam, we find the problem

00:09:25--> 00:09:30

that whoever called to nationalism, tribalism

00:09:31--> 00:09:32

is not over.

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

Why?

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

Because the call of nationalism,

00:09:41--> 00:09:50

to tribalism, these are opposed fundamentally, to the Brotherhood of faith.

00:09:52--> 00:09:58

Because when a person is a nationalist, then it becomes more important to him

00:10:00--> 00:10:05

maintain his ties to his fellow national,

00:10:08--> 00:10:16

brothers, brothers by the nation that he belongs to, they become more important to him, then the Brotherhood of faith.

00:10:18--> 00:10:20

So we will find, for example, today

00:10:22--> 00:10:23

Arab nationalism

00:10:25--> 00:10:26

displaces

00:10:27--> 00:10:28

the Brotherhood of faith.

00:10:29--> 00:10:32

And as such, we have seen the product

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

in terms of the destruction

00:10:37--> 00:10:40

of a number of these Arab states,

00:10:42--> 00:10:43

in the name of Arab nationalists,

00:10:45--> 00:10:59

and this is so deeply embedded in the psyche of the people, that in spite of this destruction, partial destruction which Allah has brought on these people, they continue to talk about

00:11:02--> 00:11:03

this than heroin

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

struggle,

00:11:15--> 00:11:16

the struggle of

00:11:17--> 00:11:19

proof against falsehood

00:11:20--> 00:11:22

is one, which has its roots

00:11:24--> 00:11:26

in the struggle against pride,

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

and

00:11:29--> 00:11:40

it reaches all facets of human existence, whenever an individual or a people choose to follow the path of

00:11:42--> 00:11:46

once they have chosen the path of truth, then

00:11:47--> 00:11:48

the forces of evil

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

will be

00:11:52--> 00:11:59

constantly against them, to try to replace that truth with the falsehood

00:12:00--> 00:12:04

of nationalism, corruption, etc.

00:12:06--> 00:12:07

Now, this logo,

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

sometimes it is open and clear

00:12:13--> 00:12:16

what those who are opposed to the calling to

00:12:17--> 00:12:21

Nikkei for example of the media, where we could see

00:12:23--> 00:12:25

magazines have corruption,

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

movies,

00:12:28--> 00:12:29

video,

00:12:30--> 00:12:36

newspapers, the concept, the concept of falsehood may be very clear.

00:12:38--> 00:12:41

However, at the same time, Lam pointed out

00:12:42--> 00:12:51

there are other methods of falsehood, which can easily capture even the minds of those who oppose the truth.

00:12:54--> 00:12:58

And that is the powerful, which come through slander,

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

the spreading of false tales about people

00:13:06--> 00:13:07

the problems I tell them

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

are informed his companions

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

that

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

one who backed by

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

one who speaks about his brother

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

in turn, which is rather, would not like spoken.

00:13:32--> 00:13:35

The compilers asked him what is what was said was true.

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

And he said that this is in fact backbiting.

00:13:40--> 00:13:43

Whereas if it's not true, then it is language

00:13:45--> 00:13:46

is an evil thing.

00:13:49--> 00:13:54

They find Islam opposed to backbiting and to slander,

00:13:55--> 00:13:59

because these are channels through which

00:14:01--> 00:14:12

can be fed in such a way that they catch the believers and make them a part of the forces that are against the truth in the society.

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

For example, you may find individuals

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

who will praise Islam,

00:14:21--> 00:14:24

you know, talk about the greatness of Islam, this that and the other

00:14:25--> 00:14:34

and in the same breath, they will attack certain individuals who are working for the sake of Islam.

00:14:37--> 00:14:42

They will either bring some information which is distorted

00:14:43--> 00:14:48

or maybe some errors which are committed by the people, you know, and there.

00:14:51--> 00:14:54

They're minor errors, but they're made to appear to be

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

or they may introduce certain slanders about these people that happened.

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

On one hand, this person appears to be a supporter of Islam. But on the other hand, by his sacking those people who are in the process of studying Islam or teaching Islam etc, they are undermining

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

the truth.

00:15:20--> 00:15:29

They're using the truth you know as a as a guide in the sense of a disguise to cover their true intentions.

00:15:31--> 00:15:36

And this is something which you know, the media utilize is awful.

00:15:37--> 00:15:41

You have fed magazines which may call themselves Islamic.

00:15:43--> 00:15:46

But at the same time within the articles

00:15:48--> 00:15:57

which are being presented, there are certain attacks on Islam, which are coming about to slander and

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

distorted information.

00:16:05--> 00:16:06

The Imam

00:16:07--> 00:16:08

mentioned

00:16:09--> 00:16:12

the incident which happened in the time of the bathrooms as

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

well warin Ayesha,

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

the third wife of the problem

00:16:20--> 00:16:23

was accused of adultery.

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

And this

00:16:28--> 00:16:29

story,

00:16:30--> 00:16:34

which was started by hypocrites, people who are in fact

00:16:36--> 00:16:42

non Muslims pretending to be Muslim, but it's spread by way of Muslims.

00:16:44--> 00:16:50

In fact, at the end, when the truth came out that it was false, a lie reveal the verse

00:16:51--> 00:17:01

absolving Ayesha for many blame. Three of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam two males and a female were publicly lash

00:17:03--> 00:17:08

at lashes, for their part in spreading this rumor,

00:17:09--> 00:17:15

and a lot of said in the Koran know concerning this incident and it's called the heartbeat. And if

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

that

00:17:19--> 00:17:24

though, you may consider this to be harmful for you. It is in fact Good for you.

00:17:28--> 00:17:29

This plan though, which was spread

00:17:31--> 00:17:32

what it did,

00:17:33--> 00:17:36

though, it created some arm, some

00:17:37--> 00:17:39

dishonor to certain degrees to the Bahamas,

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

you know, bad feelings on the part of ice and others were her family etc. At the same time, it was a means of exposing those hypocrites

00:17:54--> 00:17:57

who are intent on trying to destroy Islam from within.

00:17:58--> 00:18:13

As well as it provided a lesson for the Muslim community in avoiding the spread of rumors Krav Maga to emphasize this also had said that

00:18:14--> 00:18:22

one who was involved in constantly spreading rumors, no mum would not enter Paradise.

00:18:26--> 00:18:32

One who constantly spread rumors, anything here he passes on,

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

that an individual will not enter Paradise.

00:18:41--> 00:18:45

So Islam has warned the delivery

00:18:47--> 00:18:57

want them to be careful about feelings within themselves of pride, which may lead them to a poll forthwith.

00:18:58--> 00:19:02

Also, against the spread of rumors.

00:19:03--> 00:19:09

That is the year because humans who are constantly moving around in a society. If you hear something,

00:19:10--> 00:19:11

you shouldn't pass it on.

00:19:14--> 00:19:26

The only time you may pass on information, which may be disliked about a person. If that information is true, the only time you may do so, is when

00:19:27--> 00:19:30

somebody whose rights are being threatened.

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

The case of marriage

00:19:34--> 00:19:40

a person wants to get married, and the woman she seeks information about that person.

00:19:41--> 00:19:47

It is your duty. If information is thought from you and you know something about this person, you should inform.

00:19:50--> 00:19:57

We have this from the practice of the problem of elements of one of the female compilers that come to him and asked him you know that

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

On an admirable Alas, had proposed to her

00:20:05--> 00:20:06

name, the parcel of interface

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

and report card salami says

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

that, you know soufiane is stingy,

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

stingy with his money. This is something nobody like said about him.

00:20:22--> 00:20:31

But it is something as a woman going into marriage to know, this is the man who's not going to, you know, easily give you the money that you might need or want.

00:20:34--> 00:20:38

And he went on to say that the law, he beats his woman,

00:20:41--> 00:20:50

you have men who beat the woman, if a woman is going to get mad at the situation, she should be informed, that she knows what he's getting into.

00:20:52--> 00:20:57

And of course, no man likes that information to be spread about also businesswoman.

00:20:58--> 00:20:59

Nobody

00:21:00--> 00:21:10

goes and tells people that neighbors may know people, you know the word spreads, maybe to some degree around among friends. So somebody is going to get into a magical situation and they should be informed and

00:21:11--> 00:21:24

informed. And then he went on to tell her that it would be better if she made the sound might even save the fun of a free slave who had been given to the bathroom for some time.

00:21:26--> 00:21:59

Now, this is an example where in such can, such information may be passed on. Also in cases where somebody, for example, is about to get involved in a business deal. Now you inform a friend of yours, a friend of yours informed you that he's going to get into a business deal with a person. Now if you've had some dealings with this person, you know, which are bad, they borrowed money and didn't return it, they got into business and it's out through and they didn't fulfill their end of the bargain, whatever, then it is your duty to enforce this.

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

Not, you know, to go overboard now. And it's tactical, you know, take out all your hatred and dislike for this personnel and, you know, put that on the other person know,

00:22:10--> 00:22:22

just to inform them that you had business dealings with this person in the past and such and such happened. So, they are aware, they want to go ahead, fine, but it is, it is your duty to inform

00:22:23--> 00:22:24

such cases. Similarly,

00:22:26--> 00:22:30

you know, if a case is being tried or something, and

00:22:32--> 00:22:35

information is requested by the judge,

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

which will

00:22:39--> 00:22:44

be crucial in the case, then, you are required to give up that information.

00:22:51--> 00:22:51

So,

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

it is for us

00:22:55--> 00:23:06

to constantly be aware that the struggle between truth and falsehood is not something which occurs

00:23:07--> 00:23:08

in particular

00:23:10--> 00:23:22

places or to particular people. It is something which will occur with every person who seeks to uphold the truth. Once we have chosen Islam as our way

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

and Islam is the ultimate truth,

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

then all of the forces of falsehood will be

00:23:32--> 00:23:33

arranged against

00:23:35--> 00:23:41

our declaration of Islam is a declaration of war against the forces of forces.

00:23:43--> 00:23:47

So we will be faced throughout our lives with many difficulties.

00:23:48--> 00:23:52

There will be many circumstances where people will disappoint us

00:23:55--> 00:23:57

where I named maybe

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

before

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

that things may be fair about

00:24:03--> 00:24:10

we should realize that this is something which is a part of avoiding the truth.

00:24:11--> 00:24:15

The something that the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam face throughout his life

00:24:17--> 00:24:18

and the prophets before him.

00:24:19--> 00:24:37

When we read in the stories of the Koran concerning the Prophet, we think oftentimes when the prophets came to the people, calling them to righteousness, you know, their response to the people on the app across the the society was you know that you

00:24:39--> 00:24:41

were coming to college for you. You're nobody

00:24:43--> 00:24:47

You know, you're not of the same status as us.

00:24:50--> 00:24:51

They were called magician.

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

they're asked to do things which were ridiculous.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

Fun was made up

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

This

00:25:02--> 00:25:04

was the way of the Prophet.

00:25:06--> 00:25:12

And if we choose to uphold the truth, then we have chosen the way of the Prophet.

00:25:13--> 00:25:18

And as such, we have to be prepared to stand steadfast throughout our life

00:25:19--> 00:25:21

in opposing falsehoods,

00:25:23--> 00:25:26

whether it is directed to us,

00:25:27--> 00:25:32

by others, or directed towards others, who are appalling that

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

we have to stand up in defense,

00:25:38--> 00:25:43

we cannot sit and hear bad things being said about the truth

00:25:44--> 00:25:46

and just hate it in our hearts. No,

00:25:47--> 00:25:51

as long as we are capable of opposing it, we should oppose it openly.

00:25:52--> 00:25:58

Only when it becomes, you know, you have no other choice but to hate it or maybe just hate it.

00:26:04--> 00:26:05

And you should always

00:26:08--> 00:26:12

be involved in prayer, asking for laws

00:26:16--> 00:26:19

is protection against the forces of falsehood

00:26:22--> 00:26:29

is support to those who uphold the truth, we should pray for them, as we should pray for ourselves.

00:26:34--> 00:26:36

And that, you know, basically the

00:26:38--> 00:26:40

essence of the hook, but today

00:26:42--> 00:26:43

is actually quite brief.

00:26:46--> 00:26:48

If you have any questions or

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

thoughts

00:26:53--> 00:26:58

you'd like to express concerning the struggle between truth and falsehood.

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

Welcome.

00:27:36--> 00:27:41

Well, maybe you want to elaborate a little more, you know, make it a little clearer to everybody.

00:28:21--> 00:28:34

I would hate to want to limit it to that particular point, because what I know of the mom, that doesn't really sound like him, you know, I would say within the kingdom itself,

00:28:35--> 00:28:37

you have different camps,

00:28:38--> 00:28:47

where some have upheld certain positions, and others have spoken against them. And they don't necessarily have to go outside the country, they exist within the country.

00:28:48--> 00:28:49

You know,

00:28:50--> 00:28:54

you have, for example, even in the case of a

00:28:55--> 00:29:08

movements, which are developing, for example, in Tunisia, and Algeria, and so forth is going on, you can see what has happened in the case of Algeria were to crush that Islamic movement

00:29:10--> 00:29:37

via a state of emergency was was created within the state. And the leaders of that movement, were then accused of sedition and plotting against the government because for their whole image was distorted in the media, to make them appear to be, you know, actually against this flower. In fact, they were the supporters of Islam. And these same individuals who are leading the the Algerian

00:29:39--> 00:29:53

socialist movement, you know, have, you know, divorce themselves from the Socialist Party, you know, talking Islam and so forth to try to give that image of Islam that they're, in fact for Islam, you know, but not the way these, you know,

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

fundamentalist, you know, extremists wants to try to do it.

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

You know, I think, you know, references could be found there.

00:30:05--> 00:30:26

I would hate to think that it would be just an issue of, you know, the position of some of the scholars here, as opposed to some outside because in terms of the events which have happened concerning the, you know, American presidents, etc. I mean, you had a number of scholars internally were opposed.

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

As well as those who support

00:30:39--> 00:30:40

one of the lessons that

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

brought up

00:30:45--> 00:30:46

the Muslim world he is

00:30:48--> 00:30:51

not likely not simply to investigate,

00:30:55--> 00:30:56

investigate, query the

00:30:58--> 00:31:00

query someone else to find out the graph.

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

It will apply that principle

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

area

00:31:12--> 00:31:13

here a few months ago.

00:31:17--> 00:31:23

If we play those and we have Africa, how do we query them? On one hand, we get

00:31:26--> 00:31:27

the appearance

00:31:33--> 00:31:35

there's the concern about basic

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

bonding

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

comfortable fundamentals.

00:31:43--> 00:31:45

On the other hand, we have those

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

two

00:31:52--> 00:31:54

we're making some attempts

00:32:03--> 00:32:04

to automatically

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

over quote unquote, fundamental again

00:32:17--> 00:32:18

I only know about

00:32:24--> 00:32:25

the newspaper here

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

back

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

to our work or being a

00:32:35--> 00:32:36

quote unquote

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

fundamentalist

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

by our

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

although I would never

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

have that group.

00:32:55--> 00:32:56

I don't know

00:32:57--> 00:32:58

why.

00:33:08--> 00:33:12

Wanting to have a separate room, but nonetheless, within the society,

00:33:13--> 00:33:15

they function within the divide

00:33:18--> 00:33:20

outside of society is a

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

very, very complicated,

00:33:28--> 00:33:32

illiquid and get on the inside of the building by

00:33:34--> 00:33:36

using the name of the bomb alone.

00:33:38--> 00:33:39

Islam was

00:33:41--> 00:33:47

on global level with Lincoln, when they decided that we can fight the bomb from outside

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

from the inside and the

00:33:51--> 00:33:55

same came from a Muslim leader.

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

Breaking up

00:34:13--> 00:34:16

I lose the knowledge put on

00:34:17--> 00:34:22

an open mind, I think maybe let them get on the info or maybe

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

a glue

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

on

00:34:29--> 00:34:30

whatever whatever whatever.

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

Find the police.

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

Easily the look on the wrong side, even in our emotional support, because they say we are for as long as

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

we are for as long. So

00:34:55--> 00:34:56

a lot incremental news

00:35:02--> 00:35:08

The information and more important in our mind don't find one opinion before the right or wrong

00:35:37--> 00:35:38

day

00:35:56--> 00:36:01

looking for a chapter from the client, are you looking for a statement

00:36:23--> 00:36:24

we have you know concerning

00:36:26--> 00:36:44

slander concerning a person who is accused of adultery or fornication, if a person is falsely accused or if the person who makes the accusation does not produce for witnesses, then the law is stated in the crime is that they receive at lashes

00:36:53--> 00:37:13

lesson level this is not left up to the judge, you know, the judge to determine the harm, you know, how often it has taken place. And he can now set a penalty which will be less than this upper penalty, which has been set by God concerning

00:37:14--> 00:37:17

you know, slander concerning fornication, right.

00:37:18--> 00:37:49

Which is like a person's honor, you know, destruction of honor, on the highest level, right, in terms of Islamic Society, chastity is considered one of the greatest, dishonest, most dishonorable things you could say about a person. So, that is the maximum 18 lashes less than that, you know, the, the judge then can judge, you know, according to the circumstances, and the penalty in this case is called comes under the heading of what is known as Pi Zero. Whereas, in the case of the the

00:37:51--> 00:38:00

ad lashes, this is called the hat. Because this one has been set by a law, the other one is left discretionary, that's up to the judge who choose

00:38:18--> 00:38:19

whether they are

00:38:27--> 00:38:30

some other reasons why

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

I want

00:38:35--> 00:38:36

to do another

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

one.

00:38:49--> 00:38:51

How would I find out?

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

There are

00:39:01--> 00:39:32

limits as to what can be said. If you ask, for example, about a given leader in states, for example, you asked about newest podcast. Okay, you know, what do you think about this person? I mean, what you're asking him, in fact is what do you what is the Islamic position concerning this person, is what he's calling for Islam is the duty that the person who's being asked to inform you concerning that, you know, in terms of what do you think personally about the person, that's another thing

00:39:34--> 00:39:42

in terms of how what you're asking your question, you know, what is the Islamic view on this person, you know, and his teachings,

00:39:43--> 00:39:47

then that kind of information can be can easily be given.

00:39:49--> 00:39:50

And it's perfectly legitimate.

00:39:53--> 00:40:00

But then it goes into the area of, well, I feel the tone for the phone. So you know,

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

Then that's where you're stepping beyond the bounds

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

having

00:40:48--> 00:40:48

a balance,

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

well,

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

the issue of homosexuality is looked at, not as something, which is

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

a

00:41:30--> 00:41:32

biological

00:41:34--> 00:41:39

problem in the sense of like a sickness which can be looked at biologically speaking.

00:41:42--> 00:41:46

Or in the sense that, you know, people are born that way.

00:41:48--> 00:41:56

From Islamic perspective, it's not looked at in that fashion, this is something that people are aware of life that people have chosen,

00:41:58--> 00:42:00

it is looked at as, as a

00:42:02--> 00:42:25

a distortion of human nature, it is looked at as a sickness, in the society, when that is sickness, in the sense that, you know, people may have some sicknesses which you have to allow for in a person is mad, a person is insane, I mean, this is the sickness and imbalance that is taking place in the body, and we have to accept him and, you know,

00:42:27--> 00:42:36

help him to survive in the society, whereas, in the case of homosexuality is not looked at, in this fashion, when he is looked at as an enemy of the society.

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

Unless you seek treatment in the sense that he goes to elope medical people have some kind of, you know, psychiatrist or whatever, who can help him

00:42:52--> 00:43:27

to deal with this problem. And that says, unless you seek treatment in this fashion, let's say Islam would, would tell this guy to to reject this person or a person comes to you Seeking Alpha homosexual comes to you, even though the average Muslim is similar to you, I got this problem, you know, can you give me some advice, can you help me, you know, you should try to help the person. But such a person, if he is caught expressing his sickness, then the society deals with them quite harshly. And then he's executed. One who was involved in homosexual activity, and one who,

00:43:29--> 00:43:34

you know, allows it to be done to himself, you know, both of these people are executed,

00:43:35--> 00:43:38

according to Islamic law. And

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

there,

00:43:43--> 00:44:17

I mean, it is the line is quite clear. And this is not something, you know, which will be modified in time. You know, as in Christianity, it was clearly something opposed by the church, by the teachings of the Prophet, which will remain within the books that have scriptures that are, you know, held by the church. I mean, they were opposed to it, you know, both Judaism and Christianity, they are, you know, laws against this, calling for the execution of these people to it is there in the Bible, however, because Christianity

00:44:18--> 00:44:20

is manmade,

00:44:22--> 00:44:31

it will modify itself to become acceptable with the time and the people that it finds itself amongst.

00:44:32--> 00:44:55

So you find, you know, that this position of the church towards homosexuality in many of the different sects has changed and modified so much so that you have now even homosexual churches where the minister himself is homosexual in his congregation or homosexual, you know, they're accepted within certain, you know, church bodies.

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

So,

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

That kind of you know, change which evening in the medical profession

00:45:07--> 00:45:11

homosexuality was looked at in the past as being a

00:45:12--> 00:45:20

distortion a deep a deviant behavior, whereas, now, the medical profession has been forced

00:45:22--> 00:45:30

to reclassify it as alternative behavior and that in fact, is not in itself devious.

00:45:41--> 00:45:46

Yeah, you know, the case of the people have lots of loot

00:45:48--> 00:45:56

and a Salaam, we know, they, as referred to in the choir, these are the first people as the whole people who

00:45:59--> 00:46:14

marry or even, I mean, you even have, you know, lesbian women, you know, having children by artificial insemination, and you know, all these kinds of things happening, it is now, you know, becoming such a norm, that

00:46:16--> 00:46:26

we tend to think that the chances of punishment coming down into society as a whole, just for that alone, you know, are quite great.

00:46:28--> 00:46:39

If those who uphold righteousness, No, do not take a firm stand and you know, overcome this movement within the United States and elsewhere in the way

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

this is,

00:47:05--> 00:47:17

to be quite fair to me, you know, when we talk about, you know, homosexuality, we cannot just talk about it in terms of just the way because, in this part of the world, also, it is rampant,

00:47:19--> 00:47:42

it is quite rampant, you know, wherein it is accepted, as, you know, where, where there's a separation of the sexes, you know, and it has become accepted amongst young people, that they may practice this, whilst the young women, when they're able to get married, they stop doing it and carry on and they may not be the form that we know it in the West, where people have chosen this lifestyle from, you know,

00:47:43--> 00:48:01

from early life until the death, you know, but even this form, I mean, this is as easy as possible. You know, there is no excuse for it. There's no you know, excuses can be made, that it should be opposed, you know, in all of its forms.

00:48:28--> 00:48:29

We have

00:48:31--> 00:48:32

our way of life.

00:48:41--> 00:48:44

Nothing wrong with judging people by

00:48:45--> 00:48:46

the things that

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

happen.

00:48:59--> 00:49:00

fundamentals,

00:49:08--> 00:49:08

fundamentals.

00:49:16--> 00:49:18

You can have more than one way to

00:49:21--> 00:49:22

go backwards

00:49:23--> 00:49:24

to the point that you make this

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

is not

00:49:31--> 00:49:32

meant to be

00:49:35--> 00:49:36

the new

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

Didn't

00:50:18--> 00:50:18

know.

00:50:42--> 00:50:44

We'll get to the point that we want to apologize.

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

Back

00:51:29--> 00:51:30

to the point

00:51:37--> 00:51:38

out,

00:51:52--> 00:51:53

no one

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

wants to be called back

00:53:27--> 00:53:28

in the form of

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

work

00:53:42--> 00:53:44

wouldn't get on top of our identity

00:53:48--> 00:53:49

to follow

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

me in the secret

00:53:58--> 00:54:03

without the follow that they have no sound or examples of their own

00:54:05--> 00:54:08

without knowledge

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

without

00:54:13--> 00:54:14

real advice about

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

what

00:54:31--> 00:54:31

that means

00:54:40--> 00:54:41

and whether you're the victim of

00:54:44--> 00:54:45

the boom Napoleon

00:54:53--> 00:54:55

but it is in the other

00:54:58--> 00:54:59

division of the solar acres

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

Can

00:55:04--> 00:55:09

you hear me legal and natural, then under both of these,

00:55:11--> 00:55:12

you may find

00:55:13--> 00:55:20

that which is by statement that was by his action, or that would occurred in the present.

00:55:23--> 00:55:51

The normally speaking when during this division you're referring to this is usually discussed in relationship to the similar cash at the legal center, how does the Negro fill account legal silicom either by a statement of the power column, where he has said do this or don't do this or that you do this, but you don't do this or he has shown by his actions by calculating the pay

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

that

00:55:54--> 00:56:06

you do the confines of the religion without a doubt, you know, for example, like his playing the to symbolize the fact that this is something we never gave up

00:56:07--> 00:56:33

though as a traveler, you are allowed to cut down right to the compulsory and even shorten the compulsory care for unit delta t he used to even while traveling between pillars of budget. So, from this actual it is it classifies that those people that have been highly recommended to be done.

00:56:39--> 00:56:48

And the last category was added from the cafeteria, something which is again directly attached with the religious

00:56:50--> 00:56:54

appears, you know, where for example, after lots of pledges,

00:56:55--> 00:57:01

the talks as Alan had said that there was no prayer after fudger until the rising of the sun

00:57:02--> 00:57:10

on one occasion after certain projects and individual got up the prey and the bug, what do you do?

00:57:12--> 00:57:26

Well, he said he was playing the two unit voluntary unit dinner, which he was doing before the compulsory in the past I tell him remain quiet, you intended it. So, his

00:57:28--> 00:57:39

quiet acceptance that is what they call the similar criteria. But now, when it has when it when it when it involves things, which have no direct relationship

00:57:43--> 00:57:56

involved things which has no direct relationship to the the religious practices, then within the leprosy area, which

00:57:57--> 00:58:01

outside area the natural sinner, you know which

00:58:02--> 00:58:07

we may do or not do and which has no Pacific mirror.
