The topic the world of the jinn
as the one which tends to bring out the most people,
which is why we chose it.
Had we chose some other fifth topic or something like this, I'm sure we wouldn't see a quarter of the number of people who are here this evening.
This is a very interesting topic. Because it isn't a topic that most of us don't really know too much about.
We have grown up in different societies, where there are many stories, fables,
old wives tales, all kinds of
information or misinformation about the jinn.
as a result,
most of us have a very garbled understanding of this world. In fact, myself, when I was looking around for a topic, to do my PhD thesis on
stumbled onto this topic for the same reason that in spite of having studied on the BA level in Medina University, and a master's level, in South University in Riyadh, all in Arabic, studying the sources etc. Still, the world of the jinn remains something unclear.
I had heard of course, other information maybe that the average person doesn't hear from scholarly circles, but even in the scholarly circles, so called scholarly circles, there was a lot of, you know, questionable materials circulating.
So, I decided to do my PhD thesis on exorcism in Islam, The Exorcist tradition in Islam to get clarity on this area, on one hand, to get clarity and at the same time to provide in the we call them the orientalist circles.
where people are studying in universities, doing Oriental Studies, many studies of the Eastern religions and cultures of the East.
They're the image or the understanding of Muslim belief concerning the
invisible world around us, is also very garbled because the researchers, Western researchers who have studied or who I've researched the area of Muslim beliefs in the spirit world, they went to the various Muslim cultures around the world, from from India, to South Africa, to Indonesia, to you know, Maldives, all around the world, wherever there are Muslims, and they question them about their beliefs. And of course, they got all of the confusion and the misunderstanding that most Muslims have about this world. And they wrote it up as
scientific research into the culture of Muslims. And that's what's available in their circles. So I felt it was also important to leave behind a document, my thesis, which would give a clear picture of the unseen world and the forces there, especially concerning the world of the jinn, and how it interacts with our world.
undertook this research traveling to different parts of the Muslim world.
meeting with people who are dealing with the unseen world, the exorcists, those who were themselves practicing exorcists.
And focusing particularly on those who claim to be treating these situations of possession etc. In accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah I restricted myself to those who claimed they were treating in accordance with the Quran and the Sunnah, because there are so many other people who are involved in other practices, they don't bother to claim Quran and Sunnah. They're just doing their own thing, you know, that there was no point into in researching into those areas, because I felt there would be there's enough confusion out there already. We don't need to hear more. But I felt it was necessary to go to research this to get the clarity, the clarity of
this world, for the benefit of Muslims for myself, first and foremost, for the benefit of Muslims in general. And even for non Muslims, you know, who have this
mistaken understanding as to what our beliefs consist of?
So, when looking into the world of the jinn, and some people say, Well, you know, why even bother going into this area? You know, and why did we don't just leave it, you know, there's so many other things to occupy our, our ourselves with, you know, we have,
you know, Muslims being killed in Syria, etc, you know, and problems in Egypt, and etc, why even bother to go into the world of the jinn? Well,
reality is that, on one hand,
the Muslim community
embroiled in this world, not just the Muslim, actually, but the world community. But the Muslim community issues are rising all the time.
I can say that I don't think I've been to a single country in the world. And I've been to many, maybe 6070 different countries.
were visiting Muslim communities, I wasn't going to them for sightseeing, etc. I went to India, maybe about 15 times and I never went to Taj Mahal, okay. So it's not about sightseeing, but, you know, meeting Muslims from all over the world. I must say that everywhere. I went
People came with problems and issues concerning the world of the jinn.
as much as Syria and Egypt are important,
though we can't do very much about it where we are,
and the situation that we're in,
at least in the case of the world of the jinn,
for us to get clarity in this area, and be able to enlighten others who may have fallen into different forms of
heresy, or misguidance, because of their interaction with this world, at least, there is something direct that we can take away, inshallah, this evening from this topic.
The world of the jinn
is important enough
that we have in the Quran in the 72nd chapter, we have
named the chapter of the jinn.
If it weren't something that important, something that we needed to know about, then Allah subhanho wa Taala, would not have
taken the time to put in the final book of Revelation
sections, important sections, which deal with the world of the gym.
So that alone is enough to tell us it is important, it is an area of knowledge that we should have, we should have clarity on it.
And this is mainly
because the world of the jinn
is not like
world of the unseen in the rest of the universe.
When the universe began,
what is going on on various planets, you know, millions and billions of light years away, this is all part of the world of the unseen and the Western world that is their concern. They want to know how did this world begin the Big Bang and everything about it, and what's going on on these other stars, you know, other planets that they can see seem to be out there.
moving around stars, billions of light years away, etc. That's their concern. But reality is that that world
has no relevance to this.
It in no way affects this world. We can live our whole life, not knowing anything of that,
or knowing all that they know. And it doesn't make any difference.
It is only important for them. Because they don't believe that there was a god, there is a God
and that everything happened by accident. So they want to try to understand that accident.
So that is their concern. But this is not our concern. We believe in God. We believe there was and is and always will be a god.
This world was already created the stars. Allah describes them as beautifying the sky. This is why he put them there, to beautify the sky for us, not for us to try to get there and take anything back.
But it was part of the beautification as he beautified the earth he beautified the heavens.
But the world of the jinn
which collides with our world, at different points in time
through different individuals.
This has direct relevance to our world.
You only have to open the newspaper
most newspapers and you find the horoscope column
And the whole world of the horoscopes
which is the world of fortune telling
is connected to the jinn.
That's in our daily newspapers every single day you open the newspaper there you will find
us interacting with the world of the jinn.
Now the term Jin Jin
comes from the verb Jana. Alright, Gemini which means to cover, or to hide or to conceal.
And it refers to
creatures who are law created
besides human beings
also have a freewill
but who dwell in a world, which is, for the most part invisible to us.
They represent a parallel world to our world.
Now, how that parallel world exists
next to ours.
And some people when they hear that, and they think Well, okay, what does that mean? They're their gyms in the room here with us right now. And are they looking at us all the time and some sisters is out there to cover ourselves, gyms are in the bathrooms are everywhere and
happens, parallel world exists with ours
part of our knowledge, it is not possible to know about it.
Neither do the Djinn know, nor do we know.
Whatever we know, is what has been revealed to us by Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Not from the speculation of those who speculate.
And there are books written
under the title conversations with the jinn
where people who are involved in exorcism claimed to have communicated with the jinn and the jinn told them about their world and this and that, and you know, the whole long story about that.
Don't believe it?
As the province as I love it said,
describing the Jin
wha hoo, I can do
that they are incessant liars. So even if you make the contact, be sure that whatever information is coming to you, it is 100 lies maybe one truth mixed with 100 lies.
So it is not the world to be trusted.
And the people will tell us stories about
their aunt who had a gin who is to come and clean their house, you know, regularly every Friday
or another one whose uncle was taught the Quran by a jinn
or chef so and so who used to have gins attending his class because when they would sit there quietly in the class, they could hear pens, on paper in the background in the dark corners of the classroom.
Don't believe that stuff.
What you focus on is what is clearly
confirmed in the Quran and the sooner this we know is with certainty This is the truth. everything other than that is speculation and likely on truth.
the world of those
also referred to as jaane, the plural form of jinn
that world was created before our world
which is the reason why
Questions are law concerning the creation of human beings.
Because they shared with the world of the jinn,
the ability to choose between good and evil
the world of the jinn
being on earth before human beings
with that same choice, chose
to spread mischief,
to spill blood
and to corrupt the earth.
So the question of law, are you going to make another one?
corrupt the earth like those that came before?
Some people when they see that verse, They wonder how did the angels know that what human beings are going to do? They knew the future? No.
They knew what the jinn had already done on Earth. So the
it was for them to conclude that human beings having the same abilities, the ability to choose between right and wrong would do the same thing.
In terms of
the logical question, how do we know that the jinn were created before human beings?
Is that an opinion? No, it's not an opinion in surah and calf, which we read every Friday.
In the fifth ayah Allah says there while Jana Hala Phnom in Kabul, minara Simone,
and I created the jinn before that, from a fiery wind before what before creating human beings, because beginning of the verse starts off, indeed I created man or humankind from dried clay, from black pepper, putrid mud and the jinn before that from a fiery wind. So this is the evidence, the Quranic evidence that the jinn were created before humankind.
the jinn in terms of their modes of existence are of three types.
The prophet SAW, Selim said, there are three types of jinn, one type which flies in the air all the time. Another type which exists as snakes and dogs, and an Earthbound type which resides in one place, or wonders about.
These are the three forms in which the jinn exist in the world.
With regards to their faith, they are divided into two categories, believers and disbelievers just like human beings.
you will find among them those who followed Jesus alayhis salam, and those who followed Paul,
or similar ideas of corruption. And before that, David Moses, etc, of the profits may loss, peace and blessings be upon them.
We know Prophet mamasan Salah has informed us that as every human being is created with an angel
who encourages us to go the guardian angel
who encourages us to good.
This may be related to our conscience, when we're thinking to do something bad.
Or the thought comes to us and then something in our head says no, better you don't do that.
Allah knows best. That could be the presence that is the direct impact of the guardian angel that is with each and every human being at the same time, that guardian angel is in
struggle with an evil force that is with each and every individual, which encourages us to evil.
We might be thinking, sitting reflecting on good things, normal things, and then all of a sudden, a bad idea seems to pop into our head. Ooh, where did that come from? I was a builder.
Allah knows best. But that could be the presence the evidence of that evil prompting, of course, our own soul is described in three states.
enough Selma to my inner
and Olufsen Amara bizu.
Some people understand it as three different
souls types of souls. But the evidence supports the fact that these were in fact three different stages that every human being goes through.
There are times when our
soul commands us to good
encourages us to do good
and chides us from doing wrong.
This is the the stage known as enough's, Aloma.
And there are times when the soul is bent on evil.
We have encouragements external all around us. But we are set to do this thing. And we are urged on
from within ourselves.
This is enough Sal Amar be soon as the state when our heart is
sunk to its lowest of levels.
And the state when we are good, we feel good. We want to do good, we encourage good
and in that state,
we are peaceful souls we are souls which are contented
and that is this state known as enough's al Mahatma in
Prophet Mohammed Salim told us
in another narration, authentic narration founded Sahih Muslim, every one of you has been assigned a companion from the jinn
and the companions asked him, even you or messenger of Allah.
And he said,
however, Allah has helped me against him, and he has submitted.
Allah has helped me against him. And he has submitted and now he only tells me to do good.
Of course, if you hear shed full on, fearful and making this claim, no. is off. This is special for the prophets of Allah.
Is it not for any other human being to claim? My Corinne has submitted and only commands me to do good,
like Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam
because you do have a lot of people out there claiming to work with the Djinn I'm sure most of you, you know, in your area, there's somebody if you lose anything you go to him he tells you Okay, this is where you can find it is they're telling people where they can find things.
And for sure,
if he's not the one stealing them, is working with the gin.
In terms of control of the gin, this is what the these people claim we have control over the gym.
They have submitted to us.
They do whatever we tell them to do
know that this is a lie.
Because even Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam was unable to control the jinn.
Because Surely, if he were given that power, then the Battle of bother
You know, the Muslims losing lives in a horde and all these different struggles that he had to go through this army of the gym, they're working for him finish who could defeat him?
It didn't happen.
And in our
various communities where people are claiming to have this contract with the jinn and protection from the jinn and this and that, and I know people tell me, you know that so and so he said, you can take a knife and stick it in him and it is there it doesn't affect you
believe that if Muslims had that control and power, we would not have been defeated by the colonialists
because these stories are found all over the Muslim world.
potions and amulets and things which they give Muslim fighters were going into battle wearing these things, believing that these things made them, you know, impervious to bullets, bullets would bounce off.
But instead they died in 1000s.
And Prophet Mohammed wa salam,
he had related to the Sahaba on one occasion, which is our clear evidence that nobody has control over the jinn, clear evidence, even Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, he related to the Sahaba in a Hadees, found in Sahih, Al Bukhari and Sahih Muslim.
Indeed, he said, and it freed from among the jinn spat on me last night, trying to break my Salah. However, a lot let me overpower him. And I wanted to tie him to the columns of the masjid so that you all would see him in the morning. And then I remembered my brother Solomon's prayer, Oh my Lord, forgive me, and bestow on me a kingdom not allowed to anyone after the
although I've been fairly well, happily, Vulcan, Lion berry Leah had embody.
This was the dwarf prophet today, man.
Allah gave him as his miracle control over the gin in the world of the gin, or certain gin from that world.
And he asked a law that made me unique to him, and a law unto this prayer, and that is confirmed by what was the last allies told us as narrated in Sahih Bukhari and Muslim.
Now, as I mentioned earlier,
one of the most direct ways in which the world of the jinn collides with our world
is in the area of fortune telling.
being among the tools used by the world of the jinn,
the evil from among that world because we said there are believers and disbelievers,
the evil from among that world whose goal
whose goal collective goal is similar to that of Satan,
which is basically to draw us into shock and disbelief
through one channel or another,
just as the evil amongst us
the shale teen, the devils from amongst humankind.
They don't feel happy until we are doing what they're doing.
They tried to draw us into their practices.
It is natural. It is a natural desire to want others to share in with you and whatever you have engaged yourself into.
You feel more comfortable. What you're doing is wrong.
But you feel more comfortable doing it when you have others doing wrong along with you.
So, similarly, the evil from among the jinn
who interfere in our world, how they're able Exactly. Allah knows best.
Who decides which among them are able to cross over and who are not. Allah knows best.
Their goal, as I said, is to draw us into shark.
when they seek to pull somebody into shark,
like a fisherman,
when he fishes, he does not throw the bear hook into the river, or the sea.
You know, he takes a nice, shiny Hokie, shines it up, so glitters, and he throws it into the sea, thinking that it will attract the fish.
Not until he sticks a worm,
or a cockroach, or something on that hook, and then he throws it into the sea, the fish see food,
and they bite the hook.
So the method is to offer what appears to be good
in order that you would buy the hook, once they have you.
Then you become one of their tools.
So fortune telling, because human beings are always worried about the future,
isn't it? We always worry about what's going to happen tomorrow. We would like to know what is going to happen in the future. Because if we could find out what's going to happen in the future, then we could prepare for it from today. Naturally.
The weatherman he tells you it's going to rain tomorrow, you take your umbrella with you when you go out in the morning.
He's telling you something of the future, but it's a guess.
Right? He's guessing because the satellite images have shown that
in the neighboring country, it rain and the winds are blowing in your direction. So it's expected to rain here.
Well, maybe it doesn't rain tomorrow, it means the day after.
But often times
when they tell you it's going to rain, it does.
So are they fortune tellers? No.
They're guessing. We call that educated guessing
is based on knowledge. Whereas the fortune tellers are now telling you about your future.
And they will ask you information about your present and your past.
what your name is,
your mother's name, your father's name. Once you go to anybody and they start asking you this information, know that they are quacks.
He may have a name shift, so and so and so and so. But when he comes in, you have a problem and he's asking, What is your name? What is your mother's name and he's making calculations? No, he is a quack.
Run as far away from him as you can.
Or if he tells you
where this gem is.
And you have something called gem ology.
people claiming that you were a certain jamuns is going to bring out certain things and
run as far away from these people as possible.
The world of the jinn
with regards to fortune telling,
remains an attractive world because
Some fortune tellers, who give information which turns out to be accurate,
they tell you such and such is going to happen. And it happens.
without that, of course, nobody would bother to go to fortune tellers.
So some of the things that they inform us of do take place. So where do they get this knowledge from? Well, the profits are salami explained,
concerning the gin that he spoke about the first type that are Arial
that can leave our atmosphere into
the higher reaches, outer reaches of the universe, able to travel at speeds, Allah knows best.
And they connect up with other gins who
hover near the first heaven.
And when a law gives commands to the angels, and these commands are passed down through the heavens,
they're able to hear bits and pieces of information.
And they relay this information down in the process of relaying that information, comets and meteorites etc, catch some of them and destroy them.
But some information works its way down till it reaches that which Warlock
fortune teller, whatever.
And they pass that information on accurate information.
And Ayesha asked about this tour de la sala.
Should we go to these people
for the accurate information?
He said no.
She said, but sometimes they tell the truth.
He said, it is one truth mixed with 100 lies.
One truth mixed with 100 lies.
That's the reality of the fortune tellers.
What happens is that the fortune teller tells you one truth, along with 100 lies. Now, when you hear this information, of course, it's all the same.
To you, it's all the same, you don't know which is the truth and which is the light. Right? So you hear these bits of information, and you leave
our nature is that what all we were told in that sitting?
goes into our subconscious, it sits in our head,
when one of the things that he told you,
or she told you comes true, you say, Ah, the fortune teller told me the truth.
Now, all of the other things that they told you what you didn't happen,
you forget them.
The one that you heard, which was the truth reinforces what was already in your head. And that's why you make that connection. So he told me the truth.
in this way, the word spreads so and so told the truth, you know, he is telling the future accurately, he informed me and I told you and these things happen. So it is through this circle, or this channel, that information is passed on. And we become convinced that in fact, they're able to tell us the truth.
But the fact of the matter is,
the fact of the matter is that
they're telling only one truth mixed with as we said, as the prophet SAW Selim said 100 lies and go into them to try to get that truth of course you will know which is the truth. Going to them.
Sincerely believing that they're going to tell you the truth, the prophet SAW Salah had said that is this belief in Islam
said Whoever goes
To a fortune teller believing in what he is narrating as this believed in what I brought, which was Islam.
And even if we go to the fortune teller
out of curiosity, we are curious, you know, what's he gonna say?
We open up the horoscope. I don't really believe in the horoscope but I'm curious to see what do they say?
Okay, you people born in July you cancers
don't do what you're planning to do today.
It's not a good day for it.
Now if you go and you look at that, you read it out of curiosity. The Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said, your prayers, your Salawat are not accepted for 40 days and nights.
Now, I know some of you already opened up the newspaper and checked it out already today.
So don't think that Oh, our millah no point paying for that praying for the next 40 days and nights then?
no, it doesn't work like that. Because when we pray, two things happen.
we remove from ourselves, the obligation of prayer.
There is an obligation for us to pray five times a day.
And when we pray correctly, we earn for ourselves a reward.
We pray with consciousness,
not thinking about what we were doing, what we were engaged in before the prayer.
Our minds are everywhere else in the prayer,
flipping our scarves back and forth and up and down, etc, etc. In the prayer are checking our watches and checking our mobiles, making sure it's in our pockets. And, you know, we spend the prayer and all this kind of motion and activity. And
we don't even know what we said in the prayer. That kind of prayer earns us 00 reward. But it does remove the obligation of prayer prophet SAW Selim said, do not pray the farm the prayer twice.
You did it? You did it badly. Don't do it again.
Because had he not said that?
then whenever you catch yourself, you tried to do it again. And of course shaytan will tell you this was not quite right. You could do it another way. You try it again. And again and again and again. And you know,
you go crazy. So to stop that from happening, the professor Sallam said, don't pray the forum twice.
So though the reward for your prayers for the next 40 days and nights will not be given to you they've been canceled.
If you looked at your horoscope today, out of curiosity,
still, the obligation of prayer remains for the next 40 days and nights.
The other area that our world collides with the world of the gin
is the area of magic.
The area of magic.
A lot of people think it's not real magic. It's all fake
People have all kinds of contraptions, etc, that they use to make things appear as they really are.
Well, there's a lot of that.
But at the same time, in the midst of it all. There are some people involved in real magic.
And those people are involved in real magic
are not people who have powers that we don't have, other human beings don't have because that's how they portray themselves as having powers which make them idols for others.
It's not that but it is that they have made contact with the world of the gin
and the gin
operate in collaboration with them. Remember we said they don't have control
There is no control.
The Djinn can operate in collaboration, they ask you to do certain acts of schilke. And you want what appears to be the power,
you do it, and they will do it for you.
So, if you see someone who says, He comes in the room, see that bottle of water, he holds his hand and the water bottle comes into his head,
you have people will do that,
who can do that.
And it as it appears to you, it's he has some kind of power, or he can cause that bottle of water to get up off the table and come into his hand. But the reality is that it is a simple act for the gym.
You can see the gym, he lifts up the bottle and puts it in the guy's hand.
So it only appears to you that he has this power
because of the invisible nature of the world of the gym.
And this world has been from the very beginning in collision with our world, which is why last month Allah spoke about it in the Quran, gave us information about this world because it was the last message,
the last revelation. In the previous Revelation, this knowledge was given. The prophets were given this knowledge and they pass it on to their people. But the previous revelations became distorted knowledge of that world became distorted. So people ended up with all kinds of confused ideas. And even in our times, even though Yes, we are following the last revelation, the Quran has been preserved, the sooner has been preserved. So many people are so far away from the crime and sooner they don't have correct access to knowledge about this world. This is the reality
is the reality. And that's why we are in this confused state, as to the world of the gym.
And this is why it is very important for the knowledge that I'm speaking of,
to be disseminated
in our communities,
become common knowledge to protect the community, from this evil element, this evil element coming from that world.
And we have
the third major area
after fortune telling and magic, the area of demonic possession
where the jinn may
enter the body of a human being some people say no, that's not possible.
It's all made up.
It's not real, it's fake.
Not possible. Reality is that the evidence from the Quran and the Sunnah indicate that it is a reality.
It is authentically narrated,
that a woman gave her child to Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam.
To treat him.
She said that he would be overcome by Fitz every day
where he would lose control and he was shaking all this he gave to the prophets, Allah and the Prophet opened the boy's mouth.
And he said,
Oh enemy of Allah. I am the messenger of Allah. Get out.
Who is he talking to?
The little boy
is obviously addressing an entity that had entered that boy.
So the Prophet Muhammad SAW salami exercise, he treated people who were possessed.
And even in the corrupt scriptures of the Christians, there are references to Jesus, treating people who are possessed and in all
The earliest scriptures this exists.
So, it is a reality also. But what happens is that people not knowing
the truth about this relationship,
use illegitimate means, today to treat these situations, I should say that probably 85% of the cases of those people who tend to claim possession
and the majority of those who claim that they have been possessed,
I would say 75% of them are women
are psychological cases
or medical cases,
they are not true possession at all.
And those who are rarely treating biker Island soon, they will tell you that
are real cases.
Those who are not really treating by Quran and Sunnah, they will tell you, everybody is possessed.
Everybody, like the psychiatrists, when you go to the psychiatrists, you know, everybody is sick.
Everybody has some mental illness. Everybody must come to the psychiatry this business. We're dealing with business here now. So he will promote the idea that everybody is sick, as the exorcists will promote the idea everybody is possessed.
But those who are truly dealing with this, according to crime, and sooner, they will tell you very few cases, that it's real possession.
But even in these cases, how do we treat people who are possessed.
Most people go looking for somebody who says that he has a bigger surgeon
who will come and chase out the gym from the person who was possessed, you go get another gym to go and do the job for you.
this is misguidance. This is what they want you to do.
The other way is to confirm to do arts, which confirm shidduch in the presence of the possessing gin and he will leave himself no problem. The job was done.
You know, you see Christian exorcists taking people who are possessed, he raises the cross and He holds the Bible. Get out in the name of Jesus Christ. And the person is curious
you go to India with the Guru's
who walk on hot coals.
They bring people possessed to them.
They pass incense over them and sprinkle water
call on the idol and people get cured.
So it's not surprising when some of the leading Christian
evangelists, they come to India, I remember seeing somebody showed me a video of one and he would come to
Delhi I think. And he had like, you know, close to a million people there.
And people are lining up
to come at the end of the his presentation lining up to come for him to put his hand on them.
And lo and behold, in the middle of the line, where he jobbies
and brothers wearing topis
waiting for their turn.
this is what has happened.
Because we don't understand his ignorance. We don't understand what is going on. The only legitimate way
is to follow the way of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and his companions as they were taught by him.
We use Quranic recitation. We use the the sooner that the prophet SAW Selim has taught us we recite them with understanding and in this way over periods of time
Sometimes quickly, sometimes it takes a long time etc. But people get cured. And this is the only legitimate way.
Now you have other people
doing other things
where if you come to the shape
you come you're telling me you have this problem he has a bottle here it says take this water
you go and you sprinkle it over yourself you drink it, whatever.
What is this water,
He is water that he has recited over. Right so he gets he has a room filled with bottles and he walks by them and besides and
and they bottle it back and they close it up.
And this is special only water. I believe that this is not from the sooner
though people are doing it. And maybe some reputable shakes are doing it because it has become commonplace. But it's not from the Sunnah wa salatu wa sallam didn't do it, the Sahaba didn't do it.
Some say well, you know,
when we're doing the calls before we go to sleep, after we recite them, we blow on them, you know, doing what this kartoffel you say.
So when we do that, there must be some moisture in the blowing that we do, which goes on the hand. So that's what we're wiping on our bodies. So in that moisture when the sheriff he blows over the bottle of water and he
it's going into the bottle of water and it's now
mixed in with the water and now we have holy water.
Well believe that if this were the way Rasulullah saw, Selim would have been the first to tell us to do this. They could have done it. They had jugs, they had containers, he could have blown into containers and tell people go drink from it. didn't do it.
Java didn't do it. So believe that regardless of who is doing it, it is not legitimate and oil and other things in senses and people have all kinds of stuff all paraphernalia you know you go into some places they got a whole like a drugstore you know you can pick from here they're all you need this one a little bit of that, mix it that I you go to see the witches and the warlocks they're doing the same thing.
You know, so, know that the only way to deal with this world is by way of the Quran, and the Sunnah. And this is what the Islamic online university has been set up,
to provide access to people anywhere at any time. As long as you have internet connection, you can go and learn the deen correctly. that knowledge is there and much much more. I hope inshallah, that you would take that opportunity to gain that knowledge, benefit yourself, benefit your community
and get yourselves on
and if I don't meet you again in this life,
