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

He, as salaam aleikum

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

the lecturer you're about to hear was given on February 16 1991, by Bilbao Phillips in the mosque at the Saudi Arabian Airlines compound popularly known as Saudi a city in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The lecture was titled understanding Surah Al Fatiha.

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

This means

00:01:11--> 00:01:13

seek refuge with alarm from the recursive Satan,

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

that will factor

00:01:17--> 00:01:20

in the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful.

00:01:22--> 00:01:26

All praise is due to Allah, the cherisher and Sustainer of the world's

00:01:27--> 00:01:30

most Gracious, Most Merciful,

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

Master of the Day of Judgment,

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

the do we worship and die in aid we seek,

00:01:39--> 00:01:40

show us the straightway

00:01:42--> 00:01:45

the way of those on whom thou has the soul by grace.

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

Those whose portion is not rare

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

and who goes astray.

00:01:54--> 00:01:56

In fact, the high self

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

guidance for us

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

practical guidance, because

00:02:05--> 00:02:25

what else when a law provides us with guidance that is not something which is theoretical, that we may reflect on theoretically, but something which may be applied in our lives in such a way, that it improves the quality of our worship, and our submission to a lot of unbalance.

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

In the last two verses of soil,

00:02:31--> 00:02:34

we asked the law according to how he has taught us

00:02:36--> 00:02:39

that he showed us the right path.

00:02:40--> 00:02:43

And in defining the right path,

00:02:44--> 00:02:53

we are told to say the path of those who is your favorite so often the DNS name.

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

And, at the same time, we're also told to define

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

another aspect of the staff

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

in that it is the path

00:03:08--> 00:03:19

which is not the one followed by those on whom is not your blessing. Those who are stray and those on whom is Divine Anger.

00:03:20--> 00:03:22

We say the Buddha lay him

00:03:24--> 00:03:25


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

to understand

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

who it is that Ally's referring to

00:03:32--> 00:03:33

the love.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

And the

00:03:37--> 00:03:44

gala in between those who is a lot of anger and Darlene being those who have gone astray,

00:03:46--> 00:03:49

we have to turn to the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad.

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

Because if we were to try to approach these verses,

00:03:57--> 00:03:58

just from our minds alone,

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

we could come up with the end of interpretation.

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


00:04:06--> 00:04:14

when we strive to understand the collective meanings of the plan, we have to go first and foremost, to the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad,

00:04:15--> 00:04:22

to see what it is, he has explained for us as the meanings of the Quran, because the Quran was revealed to him.

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

And the law said that So, when I make a reservation and enactment

00:04:31--> 00:04:44

that we have revealed to you the remember, membranes are the remainder, which is the plan, in order that you may explain to the people what was revealed for them.

00:04:46--> 00:04:47


00:04:49--> 00:04:50

on a particular occasion,

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

inform this companion,

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

that the mother lwvma him

00:04:58--> 00:04:58

were the Jews.

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

We're Christians,

00:05:06--> 00:05:07


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

not do the

00:05:10--> 00:05:11


00:05:13--> 00:05:15

and the bonding of the Christian

00:05:16--> 00:05:21

scholars of the fear or interpretations of land, have pointed out that

00:05:22--> 00:05:23

the Jews

00:05:26--> 00:05:28

who have knowledge of the book,

00:05:29--> 00:05:36

The revelation, which they have learned the Torah, Torah is

00:05:37--> 00:05:49

virtue virtually correct, it has some distortion, they have made some distortions in it, but for the most part, it is correct, the information in it is correct.

00:05:50--> 00:05:53

And this is confirmed by the form itself.

00:05:55--> 00:05:58

So, they have a large portion of the truth,

00:05:59--> 00:06:02

but, they have chosen not to follow

00:06:05--> 00:06:11

such a lie as angry with them, because they know the truth and they have chosen not to follow.

00:06:13--> 00:06:16

Similarly, for on the other hand, the Christian

00:06:18--> 00:06:22

what they have on the NGO is mostly incorrect.

00:06:23--> 00:06:29

When they have they call the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and john and the writings of Paul etc.

00:06:30--> 00:06:34

These writings containing massive confusion and misguidance

00:06:35--> 00:06:40

there is a small portion amongst it amongst these, which in fact, are true.

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

So, they don't have

00:06:44--> 00:06:46

and they are a strange

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

the following crossword.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52


00:06:53--> 00:06:58

Allah has made particular reference to these two groups for a reason.

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

It is not nearly for us to know that those who are allies angry with other Jews, and those who are straight or the Christian, no,

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

because the plan

00:07:12--> 00:07:27

as a law states himself is guidance for the believers, those who fear a law there is guidance in it, there is some knowledge in it, which Muslims are required to apply their daily life.

00:07:29--> 00:07:32

When a law warns us about the people

00:07:33--> 00:07:45

here just warning us merely to give us pieces of information of the past, and what happened to these people and what they did, etc. He is warning us that we do not become like that.

00:07:47--> 00:07:48

This is the purpose.

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

If we accept the Quranic stories,

00:07:56--> 00:08:02

which are filled with information concerning the peoples of the past and how they went straight,

00:08:03--> 00:08:12

if we accept it in the way that ally intended, then we would be able to benefit from it and be guided by

00:08:14--> 00:08:18

this is the intent behind a law pointing us

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

out these two groups,

00:08:22--> 00:08:30

know who know and go after what they know. And those who just don't know and are strange.

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


00:08:34--> 00:08:37

when we look, in terms of Islam today,

00:08:38--> 00:08:47

on a world scale, the situation of Muslims and the present fitna that we are in concerning

00:08:48--> 00:08:57

American troops, etc. All of this is a reflection of the state of Muslims on a international scale.

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

There are examples of the same situation in our day to day personal life.

00:09:07--> 00:09:13

When we look at the majority of Muslims, we find that they know what the Pillars of Islam are.

00:09:14--> 00:09:22

If you take a child and you asked him, a Muslim child anywhere in the Western world, what are the pillars of Islam, he will tell you the pillars are

00:09:27--> 00:09:28


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

That's beautiful.

00:09:34--> 00:09:41

When we look into the lives of the majority of the Muslims in the world, we find that they're not practicing this.

00:09:46--> 00:09:53

They have knowledge of what the Pillars of Islam are. But the reality is that they are not practicing.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

So they now enter into the realm of the mother Buddha lady

00:10:02--> 00:10:11

Let me wonder, you know, why are Muslims in this situation? Why are these things happening to Muslims and why? Because they are among them.

00:10:13--> 00:10:16

They have knowledge, basic knowledge,

00:10:17--> 00:10:19

and they're not acting on this knowledge.

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

In Islam,

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

a distinction is made between knowledge and faith,

00:10:30--> 00:10:42

when it happened is that the majority of Muslims have been, or have become deluded into thinking that merely having knowledge of Islam

00:10:43--> 00:10:44

is Islam.

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

It means that they are guaranteed.

00:10:51--> 00:10:52

So they feel

00:10:53--> 00:10:58

like the Jews were deluded before believing that they were the chosen people of God,

00:11:01--> 00:11:02

the children of God.

00:11:04--> 00:11:08

The fact that they are born a Jew, it means that you are placed in paradise has been set.

00:11:10--> 00:11:13

Similarly, we find the masses of Muslims believing in the same way

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

that the fact that you were born in a Muslim family, this means that you are going to paradise.

00:11:22--> 00:11:23

This is a delusion.

00:11:26--> 00:11:35

And it is the natural product of being unable to distinguish between knowledge and faith.

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

We may have knowledge of a thing.

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


00:11:44--> 00:11:47

is there when we act on that knowledge

00:11:51--> 00:12:07

represents the manifestation of faith? That is living faith we call a living faith, not something which is just mere words. Because I'm sure none of us would question

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

that I

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

know that a lot is the one God.

00:12:19--> 00:12:19

Satan knows.

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


00:12:24--> 00:12:26

Yeah, he is the cause

00:12:27--> 00:12:28

of creation.

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

Because in spite of that knowledge, which he had, when he was commanded to bow to Adam,

00:12:37--> 00:12:43

to act on that knowledge, to refuse, out of pride, etc.

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


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

so the knowledge didn't benefit him, because he didn't

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


00:13:01--> 00:13:03

to be able to change their condition.

00:13:05--> 00:13:06

They have to

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

have the basic knowledge which then it has to again become a living thing.

00:13:15--> 00:13:19

Something which is a part of their 24 hours a day.

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

Now, there's another aspect of knowledge,

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


00:13:29--> 00:13:30

most Muslims

00:13:31--> 00:13:33

are ignorant.

00:13:34--> 00:13:35

And that is,

00:13:41--> 00:13:51

as I said, we were looking at the two groups, one group, which represented those who had knowledge and we're not acting on the knowledge these were the

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

other group, those who don't have

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

and in the Muslim world,

00:14:02--> 00:14:05

when we look into the area of telehealth,

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

we find in fact,

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


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

there was very little knowledge of

00:14:15--> 00:14:19

people, if you ask them what they say.

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

They will say,

00:14:27--> 00:14:31

however, the Christians say that allies one also

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

and the Jews say that allies one often

00:14:36--> 00:14:37

even the Hindus,

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

who most people think well you know these people believe in a multitude of gods.

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

There are so many different, either accepted that they worship their way you could even give them the idea that God is one. No, if you ask the people among the Hindus who know their religion, they will tell you

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

We believe in one God.

00:15:04--> 00:15:12

But we believe that he became a pilot, or he became, you know, in human creation and form,

00:15:14--> 00:15:22

at different points in history, in different places, and in different forms. But we believe in one God.

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


00:15:26--> 00:15:29

he could not possibly be to believe

00:15:30--> 00:15:36

in one God, because Hindus, Christians and Jews also share this video,

00:15:42--> 00:15:45

we often have a group of people

00:15:46--> 00:15:47

who will say also that

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

means that everything is

00:15:53--> 00:15:56

the first one existence, that is alone.

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

This is another expression.

00:16:03--> 00:16:12

However, neither of these two expressions correctly define the meaning of tawheed.

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

From a correct Islamic perspective,

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

much of the Muslim world

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

is involved in

00:16:28--> 00:16:31

innovation in the religion, we

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

found a clarity that, you know,

00:16:37--> 00:16:40

every innovation in religion is misguided.

00:16:43--> 00:16:47

And all these forms of misguidance lead today

00:16:51--> 00:16:52

in no uncertain

00:16:54--> 00:16:55


00:16:57--> 00:16:58

Whenever when something new

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

in Islam, it is not accepted, a lot of

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

it is rejected.

00:17:08--> 00:17:09

This is the reality.

00:17:10--> 00:17:22

However, the mass of Muslims are involved in innovation in the villages, doing things which the Prophet Muhammad did not command them to do.

00:17:24--> 00:17:26

And we can only worship a law

00:17:27--> 00:17:38

by way of the things which the Prophet commanded us to do. That's why it's perfectly safe to define for us, what is the worship of Allah.

00:17:39--> 00:17:42

This is the purpose of the Prophet among

00:17:43--> 00:17:47

to make clear to mankind, how they should worship.

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

And this is why

00:17:58--> 00:18:05

I didn't leave anything which would bring you closer to Allah, except that I commanded you to do it.

00:18:08--> 00:18:15

This is the bottom line. If there is anything that we believe, will bring us closer to a law

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

that is pleasing to Allah, because it was easy to live closer to Allah, anything that we believe, is pleasing to Allah, to Allah, if the Prophet Muhammad did not commanded us to do it, then it is

00:18:32--> 00:18:36

it is innovation, it is not acceptable to Allah.

00:18:37--> 00:18:43

This is the bottom line. This is how we define what is acceptable from what is not acceptable.

00:18:47--> 00:18:50

He told us, he defined

00:18:51--> 00:18:59

all of the ways by which we may become closer to allow all of the ways by which we may feel.

00:19:02--> 00:19:05

And if somebody were to ask you,

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

just briefly,

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


00:19:12--> 00:19:15

we could send it out. And the belief

00:19:16--> 00:19:21

that a law is unique.

00:19:25--> 00:19:40

And that this belief is reflected in all of our actions. And all of the things in which we do that we do, believing that they're pleasing to Allah, and that they bring us closer to Allah.

00:19:42--> 00:19:57

that a lot of unique and I didn't just say what I said unique Why? Because if we just use the term one, and I say for example, there is one tape recorder in this map.

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

exclude the possibility of there being another tape recorder in another match.

00:20:09--> 00:20:13

So let me say that a lie is one, we don't mean it in this way.

00:20:15--> 00:20:25

We mean what is the sense of being unique? Totally, there is nothing like him when no one

00:20:27--> 00:20:29

there is nothing like a law.

00:20:30--> 00:20:32

A law does not share

00:20:33--> 00:20:35

his characteristics.

00:20:37--> 00:20:39

Perfection with anyone.

00:20:41--> 00:20:48

The Creator, is completely distinct and different from his creation.

00:20:51--> 00:20:53

This is the fundamental

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

idea behind the principle.

00:20:59--> 00:21:07

And this principle by understanding this, we then can clearly understand why those who say everything is

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


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

When everything becomes a lot, there's no distinction between creator and creation anymore.

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

And this is why you have people saying, you know, you're alive, I'm alive.

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

We're all a part of

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


00:21:33--> 00:21:39

You have a body amongst Muslims, who will say, for example, that the human soul is divided.

00:21:42--> 00:21:43

They hold that

00:21:46--> 00:21:55

place in man, a portion of his spirits, meaning a lot of the spirits and a portion of his spirits was put into,

00:21:56--> 00:22:02

into Adam and each descendant of Adam now carries a portion of the Divine Spirit.

00:22:03--> 00:22:13

And that the purpose of man's existence is for him to reunite that divine spirit with the divine with the

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

divine with a law.

00:22:18--> 00:22:21

This idea again, is

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

in contradiction to the fundamental concept of

00:22:27--> 00:22:30

a law does not have a spirit,

00:22:31--> 00:22:33

nor is a spirit

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

created spirit.

00:22:38--> 00:22:39

It is a part of his creation.

00:22:42--> 00:22:49

None of us contains inside of ourselves, any portion of Allah know, we are His creation

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

means to us,

00:22:58--> 00:23:01

practically, is that we

00:23:02--> 00:23:04

are here to worship.

00:23:07--> 00:23:09

We're not here to become.

00:23:12--> 00:23:19

And you might think that, you know, we're getting these ideas from there are a number of people who hold this idea

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

that they mistakenly hold this idea and promoted

00:23:26--> 00:23:36

and this idea is not a new idea, it is not something which you only find, you will find it amongst Christians, amongst you among Hindus, and among others

00:23:38--> 00:23:42

commonly comes under the heading which is known as mysticism,

00:23:44--> 00:23:45


00:23:47--> 00:23:49

and it is alien actually, and this law

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


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


00:23:56--> 00:23:59

that knowledge without practice,

00:24:02--> 00:24:04

that we have to act on the knowledge that we have,

00:24:06--> 00:24:08

and that it is essential for us

00:24:09--> 00:24:10

to have

00:24:11--> 00:24:17

correct knowledge of the religion itself, we can then say that

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

there are two fundamental principles which underlie all of the various

00:24:26--> 00:24:31

pillars or practices of Islam that have an end.

00:24:33--> 00:24:38

l&d knowledge. And by that we mean the correct knowledge

00:24:39--> 00:24:45

and human being righteous deeds, that is acting on that knowledge.

00:24:46--> 00:24:59

And, of course, I'm sure you're all familiar with the many verses in the Quran, wherein the law defines the righteous, those who will succeed in this life and attain paradise as those

00:25:01--> 00:25:02


00:25:03--> 00:25:04

it or not,

00:25:05--> 00:25:07

and do righteous deeds.

00:25:09--> 00:25:13

Now, in closing, I would just like to say

00:25:14--> 00:25:21

also that this is related to the purpose of our creation,

00:25:22--> 00:25:24

which is a guy

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

said very clearly

00:25:32--> 00:25:38

that he has not created the jinn for mankind except for a battle. And that

00:25:41--> 00:25:42

can only be

00:25:43--> 00:25:56

fulfilled, if we have the correct the correct knowledge. Otherwise, we end up doing practices, believing that in fact, we are worshipping a law when in fact we're not.

00:25:58--> 00:26:10

And at the same time, the correct knowledge should also listen, to act on that knowledge, producing righteous deeds, which then becomes a matter of the worship,

00:26:13--> 00:26:14

including closing,

00:26:15--> 00:26:22

you're all well aware that Islam teaches us that the whole of the Muslims life

00:26:23--> 00:26:24

can be better,

00:26:25--> 00:26:35

or actually should be better, you should strive to make all of the various actions of his life acts of worship acts, which are pleasing to Allah.

00:26:36--> 00:26:38

So for him to attain that

00:26:39--> 00:26:43

he must fulfill the two conditions which I spoke about, one,

00:26:44--> 00:26:47

that there should be correct knowledge of a law there,

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

he should be remembering that

00:26:52--> 00:26:59

this is the aspect which is also known as the current law. And the law doesn't just mean, you know, sitting off from either

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

analog or analog.

00:27:03--> 00:27:09

I mean, this is an aspect of the remembrance of Allah. But it is not the remembrance of the law.

00:27:10--> 00:27:14

The remembrance, encompasses all of our life.

00:27:15--> 00:27:26

And when a person restricts it, just to this laptop is allowed to behind the loss of analog analog, then what he does, is, he turns this powerful

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

principle of faith,

00:27:31--> 00:27:36

he turns this powerful principle of faith into a blind, which

00:27:38--> 00:27:39

you will hear in

00:27:42--> 00:27:44

people who come into Islam,

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

he thinks

00:27:55--> 00:28:02

that for him, what is happening is that the meaning in our sense of the law and reflecting on what it means, this is

00:28:03--> 00:28:05

a physical exercise.

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

And he finished it. And he believes he is actually remembered a lot.

00:28:16--> 00:28:21

This is just a blind ritual, which will end up cursing him on the Day of Judgment.

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

He thinks he is doing something good,

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

doing something to harm himself.

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

And the principle that he must follow in turning the various acts of his life into a model is that it has to be according to the Sunnah of the Prophet, Muhammad, some of it was,

00:28:43--> 00:28:47

he has to remember a law and he has to do it. According to this,

00:28:48--> 00:28:51

when he fulfilled these two principles, he has

00:28:53--> 00:29:22

established the kind of knowledge that he should, and that knowledge now becomes a living part of his life, turning his life daily life into a bother and inshallah which would be acceptable to the law and earn him paradise, we pray, and ask them to give us the reality, of knowledge of the religion, of its practices of consequence of a law and of putting that knowledge into practice in our daily life. Thank you. So

00:29:26--> 00:29:28

let me just say that I will also

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

give you an opportunity if you have any general questions that you'd like to ask anything concerning the presentation, or other things concerning Islamic

00:29:39--> 00:29:46

principles or something like this if you'd like to ask. So we can give some few minutes 20 minutes results of that

00:30:19--> 00:30:22

It is important for us to understand just fundamentally that

00:30:27--> 00:30:31

each and every one of them represents

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

an attempt

00:30:34--> 00:30:41

by Muslims to implement the plan and the sooner in their life.

00:30:44--> 00:30:46

They're the result of human efforts.

00:30:48--> 00:30:53

And as a sub, and as such, they will contain in them some errors.

00:30:54--> 00:31:04

They're the products of human reasoning, and human reasoning is not perfect. So, therefore, there will be some errors in them. And all of this follows

00:31:05--> 00:31:13

the major, they have made that very clear to their followers, stating in one way or another, that we are human beings,

00:31:14--> 00:31:16

the things that we have reasons

00:31:17--> 00:31:27

are subject to error, some way to the correct some of it to be wrong. So, you should compare it to the plan. And so, the sooner that you find anything contradicting it

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

and follow the requirements

00:31:32--> 00:31:34

in one way or another, the scholars evolve.

00:31:36--> 00:31:41

So, this means that there is no special place

00:31:42--> 00:31:47

for any one man over another. There are

00:31:48--> 00:31:52

individual human efforts, which have become collective over time.

00:31:54--> 00:31:57

So, there is nothing wrong with a person following a method

00:31:58--> 00:32:04

as long as he keeps in mind that it is not something infallible, we don't have any

00:32:06--> 00:32:07


00:32:08--> 00:32:13

And when he becomes, he becomes infallible according to their belief. So his

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

is something which is divinely ordained, which the people must follow.

00:32:19--> 00:32:30

because it contains no error. We don't have anything like that the only person we have, who was infallible in that sense in the sense of what he taught us, we can be sure we should follow if Muhammad

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

Ji we are obliged to follow. And that's what we mean when we say

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

that's what we mean when we say that he is.

00:32:44--> 00:32:47

Who has received revelation from a law

00:32:48--> 00:32:54

for whatever he has taught us, we are obliged to try to follow as much as we can.

00:32:56--> 00:32:58

We are we don't even have to question it.

00:32:59--> 00:33:00

In the sense of

00:33:02--> 00:33:04

what was the news behind it? No, we don't have

00:33:06--> 00:33:09

to do we can we just we should do it. Last

00:33:12--> 00:33:13

time, we may understand

00:33:16--> 00:33:23

some things he has told us to do that the deep meanings are the reasons behind it, you may never know until we reach paradise, if we make it there.

00:33:26--> 00:33:28

We are obliged now to follow.

00:33:30--> 00:33:39

And he is the only one that we follow blindly that everybody else said, we're human beings made errors. And were correct.

00:33:40--> 00:33:49

We follow them when they're correct. And we do not follow them when they were an error. This is why when he was asked by one of his students,

00:33:50--> 00:33:54

if we follow a companion of the prophet

00:33:56--> 00:34:00

will we be on the correct path? In other words, if somebody chooses a hobby

00:34:01--> 00:34:06

and decides to follow whatever he said, Would he be on the correct path?

00:34:09--> 00:34:10


00:34:11--> 00:34:12


00:34:13--> 00:34:14

he was correct,

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

because the truth is one

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

unless he was correct, in other words, he was a human being. Everything he did is not right. There will be some error. So we we can follow what he did, which was correct and be sure we are on the right path.

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

He didn't

00:34:38--> 00:34:40

judge him for the error that he made and may forgive him.

00:34:44--> 00:34:49

But we know who choose to follow an error knowing that it is an error. This is terrible.

00:34:50--> 00:34:51

This is wrong. This is misguided.

00:34:54--> 00:34:55


00:34:56--> 00:34:59

apparently, we should follow the method

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

with an open mind, so we're following the teachings that are, you know, because when you come to study as a as a Muslim in most parts of the Muslim world, a Muslim person accepts Islam in Pakistan, then he is going to end up following the and whether he admits it or whether he doesn't, the greatest likelihood that he will be falling unless he happened to have accepted Islam, and somebody from another group

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

took him in.

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

If that didn't happen, that means that he will be following.

00:35:33--> 00:35:48

Now, as I said, what is required of him? No, I don't want to follow any matters. He doesn't have to say if he decided he would prefer to follow, for example, you know, scholars, who he would sit under and learn from them, and he's not particularly about particular about any particular matter.

00:35:50--> 00:35:51

But if he decides to follow them,

00:35:52--> 00:36:07

as long as he remains open mind that when we may be doing something, if somebody comes to you with knowledge, joining in with it, actually, there is a heavy, which is authentic inside the listener.

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


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

then when he finds himself in a situation like that, then

00:36:18--> 00:36:21

he should try to follow that, which is certainly

00:36:23--> 00:36:25

he tries to get further understanding, asking, you know,

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

what about the Saudis, you know, why don't we

00:36:29--> 00:36:47

try and get some clarity, but he now becomes obliged to follow the Sunnah, when it becomes clear to him that this was in fact, the authentic practice of the Dharma. So what I'm saying is that, for most, the new Congress as well as any Muslim,

00:36:48--> 00:36:52

he is not obliged to follow a particular matter.

00:36:54--> 00:37:01

But if he follows one, because that's where he is in there is nothing wrong, as long as he remains open minded.

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

The ability

00:37:05--> 00:37:19

to follow the teachings of the religion without actually following a particular matter, most of the way is something which is beyond most common people.

00:37:20--> 00:37:24

A person who is a student, a scholar,

00:37:27--> 00:38:08

he may be in a position now to, to sit and take from the various foods according to what is correct and what is incorrect. For the average person, he doesn't have the kind of backlog which would allow them to be able to do that. So therefore, he needs he will be obliged to follow somebody who we trust, whether it's the amount of the masjid or the scholar in his area, whatever, but he should also be of an inquiring mind. He should not just accept any pronouncements, you know, the person says, do this, don't do this, do this, you should be prepared to ask well, why should we do this? Why shouldn't we do that? And if you find, for example, when you ask the person, why

00:38:09--> 00:38:28

are you questioning my knowledge, then this is the person who you need to get away from right is a person who is using knowledge in the wrong way, because one should not be shy, to to explain to others and wants to not feel that he is, you know, in any way, put down by being questioned as to where this knowledge comes from.

00:38:29--> 00:38:41

Our duty is to convey the knowledge to people. So there's no reason why a scholar or a knowledgeable person should not inform people as to where this comes from, we should do this because

00:38:43--> 00:38:46

because the law said so this is why

00:38:49--> 00:38:54

so that sort of covers the idea of you know, sufficiently

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

like just sitting on

00:39:11--> 00:39:12

top of one particular time.

00:39:47--> 00:39:48


00:39:51--> 00:39:54

different interpretation by polygons, there are certainly things

00:39:56--> 00:39:57

that you can do this

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


00:40:06--> 00:40:14

I would say that generally speaking, you know, scholars points out that it is wrong for you to go around

00:40:16--> 00:40:17

looking for the easy thing

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

they call it

00:40:21--> 00:40:30

right, you know, this is, it is wrong. Because what you should be looking for is the correct thing, not the easy thing, because the

00:40:34--> 00:40:39

attention is not any more seeking knowledge to improve the practice of your religion, we're trying to find the loophole

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

for that kind of attention is definitely incorrect. It shouldn't be followed,

00:40:45--> 00:40:49

there is no harm in looking from school to school to find that which is correct.

00:40:51--> 00:40:53

And if it happens to be the easier thing,

00:40:54--> 00:41:08

that we shouldn't go with the intent of the easier thing. Okay. Now, in the situation, you know, in America, for example, where we have all the different schools are representations of different schools in one locale,

00:41:10--> 00:41:12

I would advise that

00:41:14--> 00:41:33

the people who are involved in educating the children, the people who are open minded, and who will teach the religion Now, according to the sources, without specifying much, this is what I would advise, this is a unique circumstance, in most parts of the Muslim world is not what you find

00:41:34--> 00:41:54

is either Maliki in the Sudan, sharpei, in Egypt, hanafy. In Pakistan, more humble in other areas, it is fully defined, whereas America and other countries where people are coming from different parts, you know, you find this mixture, which is sort of unique. So in those kind of circumstances,

00:41:55--> 00:42:16

I would say that it would be better that those people who are involved in the education of the community as well as the children, you know, we teach religion from the point of the basic evidence that is available, you know, without specifying, you know, this is what I would suggest in that particular circumstance.

00:42:22--> 00:42:24

You mentioned that the Jews,

00:42:35--> 00:42:35

then is that

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

something I mean, I'm not winging it out of nowhere, you can pick up Encyclopedia Britannica, and open it up and look to see what it is that they believe in. And you will find,

00:42:54--> 00:42:55

you will find

00:42:57--> 00:42:58

that, in fact,

00:42:59--> 00:43:02

this is what they fundamentally believe.

00:43:03--> 00:43:09

But the point is that the fact that a person believes that there is one bot,

00:43:11--> 00:43:12

is not in itself.

00:43:14--> 00:43:16

That's what I was trying to explain this is nothing except for

00:43:17--> 00:43:21

the fact that a person believes that there is one God

00:43:23--> 00:43:25

is not in itself.

00:43:29--> 00:43:32

Because of your idea of one God, there's

00:43:33--> 00:43:33

three parts

00:43:36--> 00:43:37

or three parts.

00:43:40--> 00:43:46

You know, this is why when they try to lay with you, you know, for Christians, for example, they will say that, you know, God is like

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

water coming from a liquid form.

00:43:52--> 00:43:52

And they come from

00:43:54--> 00:43:55


00:43:56--> 00:43:58

and then go back to the purity thing, because

00:44:01--> 00:44:03

that's what we call water

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

and chemicals.

00:44:13--> 00:44:15

In other words, they are making godlike information

00:44:19--> 00:44:25

for the Hindus, they believe that God becomes manifest in his creation

00:44:28--> 00:44:34

apparently, and this is why we got to the Hindu who is worshipping an idol you know,

00:44:36--> 00:44:38

why are you worshiping the peak of stoning?

00:44:42--> 00:44:43

are worshipping

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

with manifest

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


00:44:51--> 00:44:53

because God

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

is the Creator and he has been

00:45:02--> 00:45:11

So once you believe in a God, believe in one God, the key becomes creation, there, you have described, the correct understanding of

00:45:18--> 00:45:19


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

we will

00:45:23--> 00:45:24

play through,

00:45:27--> 00:45:29

you know, a problem happens to them,

00:45:36--> 00:45:37

you know, in recovery

00:45:39--> 00:45:40

is the most common one,

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

you know,

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

to be

00:45:53--> 00:45:58

alive after you are no longer unique, there are certain attributes which belong only

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


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


00:46:03--> 00:46:04


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

he's the only one.

00:46:11--> 00:46:15

So, once we get out of that allow, and we are committed.

00:46:17--> 00:46:18

And I tried to do it, you know, from this kind of

00:46:20--> 00:46:26

understanding so that we can apply it to any circumstance, if we're clear on this thing of the uniqueness of a law,

00:46:27--> 00:46:35

easy to see how these other ideas, in principle idea whether the other religions, because they all share,

00:46:37--> 00:46:42

there are shared with one principle that they have given

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


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

of a law, or they're given a law required quality of creation, either one or the other. In other words, a lot of them are not unique.

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

This is how we can distinguish between the two, because

00:47:06--> 00:47:06


00:47:18--> 00:47:19

so, obviously,

00:47:21--> 00:47:22

there are different

00:47:26--> 00:47:27

there really is no way

00:47:33--> 00:47:34

you can make it simple for them.

00:47:35--> 00:47:44

By showing them what is the distinction between Islam and all the others, because all the others share common.

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

Islam is the only one instance of the uniqueness of God,

00:47:52--> 00:47:57

that He does not share the qualities of his creation, nor the creation share.

00:47:59--> 00:48:00

That's the only one.

00:48:01--> 00:48:04

So, even though other religions may claim to be monotheistic

00:48:06--> 00:48:17

principle of one guy, they're all involved, according to the monotheistic principle of Islam, which is the true monotheism, what we call

00:48:56--> 00:48:57

is only one

00:48:59--> 00:49:01

and then there

00:49:02--> 00:49:07

is also another facet, judging ruling that society, you know,

00:49:09--> 00:49:11

Islam covers all aspects of life.

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


00:49:15--> 00:49:20

I am joined to know, first and foremost,

00:49:25--> 00:49:26

because otherwise is

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

going to be worshipping

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

a lot,

00:49:31--> 00:49:33

believing that they're worshipping along

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

with a man.

00:49:44--> 00:49:48

So he believes that he is worshiping God, but in fact, he's worshiping a man.

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


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

they have to declare on

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

so that they can worship

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

they have to

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

have knowledge of the basic principles of religion and to apply those principles individually, first and foremost, because there's no point jumping to a governmental level and talking about, you know, changing society, when you were in your personal life.

00:50:17--> 00:50:23

You know, you were sleeping in your bed, about the sunrise and budget, but you're talking about changing society.

00:50:28--> 00:50:29


00:50:31--> 00:50:33

The people like to jump to the high level, because

00:50:35--> 00:50:41

you can do anything. So you excuse yourself from having to do the things that you can do.

00:50:47--> 00:50:49

We have to establish the basics.

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

Number one is

00:50:52--> 00:50:53


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

We're having

00:51:11--> 00:51:12


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

in the message.

00:51:17--> 00:51:20

If we can't do that, to talk about anything, it's just

00:51:21--> 00:51:25

confusion here, then from there,

00:51:31--> 00:51:33

job situation,

00:51:34--> 00:51:37

with people striving like that in this graduate offense, eventually

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

society and

00:51:42--> 00:51:47

society number one, then you're only fooling ourselves.

00:52:11--> 00:52:12


00:52:41--> 00:52:42

At the same time,

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


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


00:53:11--> 00:53:12

depends on what you mean by

00:53:18--> 00:53:23

a non believer, one who truly does not believe in the law.

00:53:28--> 00:53:31

To believe because we can say the Hindu belief in

00:53:32--> 00:53:33

believing in

00:53:37--> 00:53:39

it is supposed to believe in a law

00:53:43--> 00:53:45

that those who do not believe in

00:53:46--> 00:53:49

Allah has ordained for them to believe in him.

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

The problem comes, when we start

00:54:06--> 00:54:07

all American,

00:54:09--> 00:54:14

you run into a problem, because then you're going to sit down with each American.

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


00:54:38--> 00:54:45

so this is where we run into a problem and you make a blanket statement, all Russian because they're going to help you.

00:54:53--> 00:54:56

So we can talk about

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


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

A lot of

00:55:07--> 00:55:08

people who believe in a

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


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

period of time

00:55:19--> 00:55:21

around allow, really remove them from how

00:55:25--> 00:55:26

they have a look.

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

And this is something we are not in a position to bear.

00:55:39--> 00:55:45

So, it becomes a problem when you start to make blanket statements of credit, you know,

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

when we're getting our printed

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

as you open up, the minute, you turn it off,

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

you know,

00:56:12--> 00:56:13

you just

00:56:16--> 00:56:22

looking for you to develop relationships with people, where people feel good about

00:56:24--> 00:56:26

them in a negative kind of way.

00:56:27--> 00:56:30

But you're trying to develop a relationship.

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

Because this

00:56:35--> 00:56:38

is another question of just picking down people that you're trying to

00:56:39--> 00:56:41

talk to them and

00:56:42--> 00:56:46

you have to approach it in a way which is

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

the method

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


00:57:33--> 00:57:34

If you ask the person

00:57:40--> 00:57:42

if you ask the person to pray for me

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


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


00:58:01--> 00:58:04

amount of something which is completely increasing and decreasing,

00:58:13--> 00:58:19

increasing in the sense of you never know, everybody goes through ups and downs.

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


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


00:58:52--> 00:58:53

you know, the topic of

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

time, and I don't want you to think that I mean, dividual.

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

II represents the totality of

00:59:07--> 00:59:09


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


00:59:15--> 00:59:19

I wanted to just try to give you the FM, but when it comes down to

00:59:21--> 00:59:24

this is when he comes in more depth.

00:59:26--> 00:59:39

This is something that in fact, you know, it's been very unfortunate that in a lot of the work that have been written about this, when you pick it up in North America by the Pillars of Islam, you will find that they were dealing with

00:59:40--> 00:59:43

in about one time, then the rest of the book is devoted to the

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


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

But in fact, it is the most important and it's the one was most, you know, should be developing because if this is not the norm

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

The pillars

01:00:03--> 01:00:07

in terms of your worship and then there's some areas that

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

needed to be emphasized and

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


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


01:00:21--> 01:00:26

responsible for the revival of concern about

01:00:28--> 01:00:33

this movement is misunderstood in people thinking you know what hobbies are like religion

01:00:37--> 01:00:38

that are deviant column

01:00:39--> 01:00:45

which is unfortunate. But this is this is like also like when a person

01:00:47--> 01:00:53

where a wrong practice becomes common, the right practice will appear to be deviant.

01:00:54--> 01:01:04

But this is really the ethics of the so called lobby movement, it was to revive the fundamental teachings of Cohiba sticking to the

01:01:05--> 01:01:08

you know, people think of the lobby movement to be against

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

the sky.

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

You know, that's why

01:01:15--> 01:01:17

Saudi Arabia, but

01:01:19--> 01:01:27

generally speaking, the major scholars did not approach it in a rigid set, that they would teach people to be open minded. This is why when they came into Mecca,

01:01:29--> 01:01:30

when they came into what,

01:01:32--> 01:01:35

at the time that they took over Mecca, you used to have

01:01:36--> 01:01:39

different places around the Kaaba

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

is one point imagine for each of the

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


01:01:50--> 01:01:52

dear mom from the canopy.

01:01:54--> 01:01:54


01:01:57--> 01:02:00

when you were finished, the amount from the shop

01:02:03--> 01:02:05

that things were in, when they came in to

01:02:07--> 01:02:13

destroy these relics, and make just one case, and the amount will follow whatever Am I gonna be following everybody

01:02:19--> 01:02:20

around me

01:02:26--> 01:02:26


01:02:28--> 01:02:33

because they were so used to the idea of these different things, they're on the copy that's

01:02:35--> 01:02:36

weird, you know,

01:02:38--> 01:02:41

when they went into Medina, and to the graveyard

01:02:43--> 01:02:48

because if you look at a picture, we made a graveyard of Medina and Mecca before

01:02:51--> 01:02:51


01:02:54--> 01:02:55


01:02:56--> 01:02:57

you know, in their

01:02:59--> 01:03:00

booth over the various ways.

01:03:03--> 01:03:03

You can

01:03:05--> 01:03:08

go to Cairo, for example, if you go to

01:03:16--> 01:03:17

you know, go to Cairo and

01:03:18--> 01:03:20

I had heard about it by alphabetically

01:03:26--> 01:03:29

going down the middle and people have actually broken into them and

01:03:31--> 01:03:33

everything in the government drugs electricity

01:03:43--> 01:03:50

around the Muslim world. So when they came in, we know that authentic traditional inside Muslims were

01:03:53--> 01:03:53


01:03:55--> 01:03:55


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

start and to never

01:04:07--> 01:04:09

have to do with the commandment of a philosopher

01:04:13--> 01:04:15

to the Muslim world.

01:04:25--> 01:04:26

Unfortunately, because

01:04:30--> 01:04:37

they were righteous themselves that led them to believe that the so called Wahhabi movement was

01:04:39--> 01:04:39


01:04:41--> 01:04:44

you know, and even to this day, of course, it is something remaining amongst the

01:04:45--> 01:04:46


01:04:48--> 01:04:49

We'll be talking about

01:04:50--> 01:04:51

example quickie

01:04:53--> 01:04:55

who talks about that?

01:05:02--> 01:05:03

There's something that

01:05:05--> 01:05:12

needs to become clearer really understand really what are the principles, and to realize that, in fact, what they were standing for.

01:05:14--> 01:05:15

They didn't bring anything new

01:05:16--> 01:05:16


01:05:18--> 01:05:18


01:05:30--> 01:05:31

I didn't want to

01:05:34--> 01:05:39

admit a statement that at the beginning or the end of every century, there was a

01:05:40--> 01:05:50

revival of religion right. Now, whether he was, or he wasn't the magenta guy, or whether it was somebody else, you know, I wouldn't want to get into that.

01:05:52--> 01:05:53

But he was a reformer.

01:05:56--> 01:06:03

There's no doubt us, calling people into the reformation, and calling them back to the correct

01:06:32--> 01:06:34

that one will read

01:06:35--> 01:06:36

and understand

01:06:38--> 01:06:39

and act on

01:06:43--> 01:06:44

the benefits of reading the Bible.

01:06:53--> 01:06:55

And this situation that you find people

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


01:07:02--> 01:07:04

in the case, we are people reading

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

and read or not,

01:07:11--> 01:07:12

I get

01:07:16--> 01:07:17


01:07:18--> 01:07:19

But I tried to add

01:07:22--> 01:07:27

another category, you could say that those people are rewarded for their intention,

01:07:28--> 01:07:32

the intention of reputation of the Word of God,

01:07:36--> 01:07:39

through understanding of recycling,

01:07:40--> 01:07:42

is the recycling understanding

01:07:46--> 01:07:48

the uttering of Arabic sounds.

01:07:49--> 01:07:51

So this is why I would advise

01:07:52--> 01:08:01

brothers who don't know that they should strive to learn to be able to understand it, to the point where they can read the stock because

01:08:02--> 01:08:07

this is a system which has been perpetuated in the non Western world, that people are

01:08:12--> 01:08:12

just learning

01:08:14--> 01:08:16

is their mistake, and the

01:08:17--> 01:08:18


01:08:20--> 01:08:28

because they have allowed it to go and they don't speak against it. And in fact, it was sort of, in a sense, in the future of

01:08:29--> 01:08:33

some of these regions, because when people are dependent on them to understand what to

01:08:34--> 01:08:36

do when anybody has to come to them,

01:08:37--> 01:08:39

livelihood for

01:08:47--> 01:08:49

people to just read and understand.

01:08:57--> 01:09:05

But there should be an effort. You know, for those who are aware, it should be an effort, you don't want to strive

01:09:06--> 01:09:13

to understand not just to understand the eye before you can read a lot of words and understand them as they review.

01:09:14--> 01:09:19

until you reach that stage. I would say it is obligatory

01:09:20--> 01:09:23

to read the plan also in transmission.

01:09:24--> 01:09:26

You continue to read, to develop

01:09:28--> 01:09:28

the knowledge

01:09:30--> 01:09:33

that you really require interpretation to understand

01:09:35--> 01:09:36

because this is the person reading the

01:09:37--> 01:09:40

to understand it so that he can act on it.

01:10:20--> 01:10:21

Okay, we

01:10:26--> 01:10:27

looked at the record

01:10:32--> 01:10:34

idea about a

01:10:35--> 01:10:39

relationship to a law incorrect, then we have to

01:10:41--> 01:10:42

put them aside.

01:10:45--> 01:10:51

If the fundamental ideas are okay, they're correct, then we look to see

01:10:52--> 01:10:58

if the practice involves things, which are now, according to the teachings of the

01:10:59--> 01:11:02

religion, we have to put them aside. Because

01:11:04--> 01:11:21

we should only be involved in movement, or groups, or, you know, any kind of communal activity, if it is according to the correct teachings of Islam from the violence from the center

01:11:24--> 01:11:34

of the terrain in Sudan, and, in general, in the Muslim world as their practice today. And they come under various names.

01:11:36--> 01:11:37

And shadow me and

01:11:38--> 01:11:57

when you go in and look at what they're teaching the people, you will find, fundamentally this idea, this idea of union with a law, this idea of the human soul being divine, and that men's price will decrease. And you know, other means of

01:11:59--> 01:12:03

remembrance and degradation of the physical body to try to liberate

01:12:06--> 01:12:08

the divine, a call center.

01:12:10--> 01:12:13

This is a common principle, these so called

01:12:15--> 01:12:19

I'm not saying that every single one, but the majority of them

01:12:20--> 01:12:25

and anyone who is deviant, you have to be the Messiah. Now the other

01:12:27--> 01:12:27


01:12:32--> 01:12:36

example in in Turkey, you have the whirling dervish,

01:12:37--> 01:12:38

you know, who

01:12:39--> 01:12:42

perform in, in New York and

01:12:44--> 01:12:51

in Madison Square Garden, they get up on stage and they stand up, they wear these big long chaps.

01:12:53--> 01:13:07

And they have a kind of a skirt like, and then they spin in circles, and they put one hand up on one hand down like this thing that comes up, like the way of ballerinas that comes up, and they spin around circles. And there's one claim from music and, you know,

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


01:13:14--> 01:13:20

this is just one extreme. And when I'm showing it, to go from the producer to the

01:13:21--> 01:13:26

that they're telling you, you know, that you're in your head, like jumping up and down or

01:13:28--> 01:13:29


01:13:32--> 01:13:33

or represents deviation.

01:13:37--> 01:13:38

To go by

01:13:40--> 01:13:41


01:13:45--> 01:13:46

you don't have evidence

01:13:48--> 01:13:51

and oftentimes, they will tell you is you know, the

01:13:52--> 01:13:53

doctors in a dream,

01:13:55--> 01:13:57

when again, find a hobby to support this guy.

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

He had a dream

01:14:07--> 01:14:08


01:14:09--> 01:14:11

based on the genes of shoot,

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

it is based on revolution which came in the

01:14:16--> 01:14:19

department. Anything outside of our

01:14:23--> 01:14:24

state in general

01:14:28--> 01:14:29

would be

01:14:30--> 01:14:32

avoided. So called

01:14:34--> 01:14:34

in general

01:15:58--> 01:15:58


01:16:50--> 01:16:51


01:16:58--> 01:16:58

you can

01:17:04--> 01:17:05

find them

01:17:28--> 01:17:30

live my life

01:18:14--> 01:18:15

Don't you?

01:18:31--> 01:18:32


01:18:34--> 01:18:35


01:18:53--> 01:18:54

Are we really

01:18:58--> 01:19:05

you know what 100% we all have this responsibility to all of us who have any knowledge because

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

it is not

01:19:11--> 01:19:17

a call to Ireland. For everybody who has some knowledge, it is his duty to pass that knowledge on to others

01:19:25--> 01:19:29

in terms of the practice of even what we know

01:19:30--> 01:19:36

I really believe that our knowledge to increase consciousness understanding

01:19:40--> 01:19:42

what we know

01:19:47--> 01:19:49

because we don't need an island

01:19:51--> 01:19:52

that we shouldn't be hearing the masters.

01:19:54--> 01:19:55

This is between

01:19:58--> 01:19:59

each and every one of our crews

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

Your responsibility.

01:20:09--> 01:20:10


01:20:12--> 01:20:14

fundamentally, besides

01:20:19--> 01:20:24

who come to try to encourage others to come?

01:20:26--> 01:20:27


01:20:29--> 01:20:40

this will put pressure on the the demand, to, to do something, we now have a massive pool of people, you're going to make no

01:20:42--> 01:20:46

mistake, because in a sense, they are the

01:20:49--> 01:20:49


01:20:53--> 01:20:57

that are responsible and they will be held before a lot.

01:20:59--> 01:21:00

But also

01:21:02--> 01:21:05

the people, they tend to be a

01:21:11--> 01:21:16

victim. There's nobody comes, you know, this is human nature.

01:21:21--> 01:21:29

And as I said before, he carries a greater responsibility than the average person. But our recommendation was

01:21:31--> 01:21:46

that they need to grab a hold of the people of knowledge and to make them fulfill their responsibilities on a personal level in terms of educating the people as well as standing up within the society to meet the change.

01:22:01--> 01:22:02

In reaction

01:22:03--> 01:22:05

to have been

01:22:07--> 01:22:09

recording available
