What they no

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


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

confined in

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

Jeddah Do you want to call

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


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

Today we're going to look at prophecy.

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


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

prophecy really is

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

at the essence

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

of all of the

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

revelations that have occurred because they're based on

00:00:59--> 00:01:07

the idea that the people that come with the revelations have proofs. And the strongest proofs that they give

00:01:09--> 00:01:16

to their truthfulness is that they're able to speak of things that they have

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

no material access to, and yet those things turn out to be true.

00:01:22--> 00:01:27

So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is in a long line

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

of prophets, although he had eight, which is a sound Hadees

00:01:35--> 00:01:41

related on hacker related and others, and somebody asked him when were you a prophet, he said container began,

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

that I was a prophet and Adam was between

00:01:49--> 00:01:50

water and earth.

00:01:55--> 00:01:58

In other words, the privatized cemetery the proceeds, Adam.

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

And obviously, that's a

00:02:06--> 00:02:26

that's a whole area of exploration in Islamic tradition, about publicizing the pre existent realities of the Prophet, that he precedes the creation, he's lost the hand with the others, first creation. And

00:02:28--> 00:02:32

it's mentioned in many, many texts, and they base it on the Hadoop

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


00:02:35--> 00:02:37

in Java, and

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

it's, but it's not a point.

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

In other words, it's not something that

00:02:44--> 00:02:45

should be a

00:02:48--> 00:03:02

reason for dissension amongst Muslims, but but there are there is a whole school that adheres to that view, and there are hotkeys to back that up. And there is a tradition from from kendare, who was the teacher of human magic, he said almost that

00:03:04--> 00:03:05

men can

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

prey on the one whose life preceded the creation. And he

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

said that without

00:03:18--> 00:03:21

some evidence, because he's one of the founders of the

00:03:22--> 00:03:23


00:03:25--> 00:03:28

So the the idea of prophecy basically, is that

00:03:30--> 00:03:39

there is something that these individuals that are prophets have access to that other human beings don't have access to. Now,

00:03:40--> 00:03:50

there is a hadith that says that a true dream is 146 of prophecy. So human beings actually do have access to parts of prophecy

00:03:51--> 00:03:55

in hand, which is inspiration or intuition,

00:03:56--> 00:04:10

is very similar to Revelation. And although it's not revelation, it gives you an indication of what revelation is like. People know things intuitively.

00:04:11--> 00:04:13

And the same is true

00:04:14--> 00:04:30

for true dreams. True dreams happen and something can occur. And you recognize that you already had some impressions of that thing that occurs. And people will see that and and also,

00:04:31--> 00:04:48

I shall belong to set about the cabinet of psychics that they used to say things that were true and the proper size and said that they did have some knowledge and but it for every true thing they would say they would add lies to it. So the psychics that existed before Islam

00:04:50--> 00:04:52

the what they would call the captain,

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

and the captain even Abdullah went to the cane Cantina in Medina to find out what to do.

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

After my parents went to find out what to do about his son because he had sworn an oath to the sun and the Arabs used to throw arrows, these are all types of divination. And their divination is you find it all over human societies in. In China, they have the eaching.

00:05:23--> 00:05:29

In desert areas, they have Mr. Brahma. And all of these are

00:05:31--> 00:05:33

their ways of understanding,

00:05:35--> 00:05:47

prophecy and what it is, and Islam abrogates all of these things prophesized to them, everything that was done before, whether it was from Hawk or baba

00:05:49--> 00:06:06

becomes abrogated with his teaching, some of it was and so the prophets that preceded him, had certain things, they did certain things, they had certain practices, but the Muslims believe that all of them were actually telling of the prophecies and so they knew about his existence,

00:06:08--> 00:06:11

which is also an indication about

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

his is proceeding these other prophets as well. So

00:06:18--> 00:06:19

if you look at

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

one of the most foundational Hadees, which is the second Hadith in a moment, no is collected email noise collection is one among many, but everything that you must know we did,

00:06:34--> 00:06:37

obviously, because of his station, but

00:06:38--> 00:06:47

because of his sincerity, everything that he did, his wafak just has to feel. And so his 40 hottie

00:06:49--> 00:07:04

really made all the other 40 hobbies, secondary to it, and it became the dominant collection that Muslims learned it's still studied all over the Muslim world. And here's the reality of 13 also.

00:07:05--> 00:07:10

But in that second Howdy, he relates to Don Omar, or the lover animal.

00:07:11--> 00:08:00

And Omar relates the first had been in it about in America might have been Yes. But in the second ad, so he says, I'm a Oban also, father, vaynerman, en de la subida. And in a lot of the printed editions, it says, been a manager who's been endorsed. But all the early manuscripts have been in beta man, no endora su de la he sobre la and he was sent them that the Yeoman we were while we were with the prophets, Allah lives in the Messenger of Allah, Allah Lavanya was the number one day is on a shadow day of the year the illegal so others share it. And you can say to share it with Tina line or share it with

00:08:01--> 00:08:03

both correct.

00:08:04--> 00:08:24

And in order to learn she'll bail the theory. So he had an extremely white garment on, should he do sawada shoddy or shoddy and extremely black hair law, Your Honor, a thorough setup. And there could be no trace of traveling seen on him.

00:08:25--> 00:08:52

Which obviously, in the desert, that's very difficult. It's basically impossible to do what I know for one minute I hadn't, so he wasn't from Medina, and yet they couldn't see any trace of traveling on him. So it was very strange for them to see him. And no one amongst us knew him had the genocide. He didn't never use online law or ID or send them until he sat at the,

00:08:53--> 00:09:22

at the province, the lottery systems where the promise I sent him was, but that's not a joke, but he documents at and he asked another and it's not as is the chain of narration so that it's not, you need to either shave the Senate is something that can act something. So he put his his two knees up against the two knees of the province. All I did was send them a wallet or cafe.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

And he put his, his

00:09:28--> 00:09:37

palms of his hands, he put on his size. And there's two views on that on the proper size and size around his own thighs.

00:09:38--> 00:09:42

Putting on their own thighs would have been

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

out of humanity like a student they say. But there's a fleet of about where the mirror goes back to the pronoun world cafe. at the bar, yeah, Mohammed, Mohammed akademia and Islam

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

inform me about Islam

00:10:04--> 00:10:14

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Islam and Tasha Allah either in God law who are under Mohammed awasu law.

00:10:16--> 00:10:31

Masada went over to his character will perform or bond with the beta in his capacity to use the veto. And so the province of I send the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Islam

00:10:32--> 00:11:30

and Islam is that you testify or you witness that there is no god except a law and the and that Mohammed Salalah and it was so then is what are pseudo law is the Messenger of Allah. What to pee masala and you establish the prayer a solid canonical prayer with till the tears cat and you give you give your circuit the tax of charity for the poor with a sama Ramadan and you fast on on multiple beta in his Tabata It is to be that all of the outcome of Islam are based on ability is to your partner. And yet has is the only one where that is specifically stated it's specified only if you're able to do it, which is an incredible relief for the vast majority of Muslims who will never

00:11:30--> 00:11:38

be able to make the hedge because the majority of Muslims will never there's 1.6 billion Muslims.

00:11:39--> 00:11:47

We're the second largest religious community on the planet. And it's arguable that we're the first because

00:11:48--> 00:12:02

so many Christians are nominal Christians, they don't really believe anymore. Many europeans don't believe in Christianity, and yet they're still usually counted as Christians. But the Muslims are officially by Western

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

standards. The second largest Muslim community, religious community, and our most of the handle data has made Hajj what he learned how to nursey

00:12:16--> 00:12:17


00:12:18--> 00:12:25

base in estafa, it is a bita that Allah says that God has

00:12:26--> 00:13:15

prescribed for humanity when he left and a nurse had to be administered by Lady subito whoever is able to do it. So the Quran makes it very clear also that the is the partner the ability is also mentioned in the product. So in both in the Quran and the Hadith, and this is a Rama it's a Sufi it's a facilitation for the oma because most Muslims are not capable of making the head. And so the fact that a lot put that and His Messenger some A lot of it said and put that was a roadmap to the almost so that they didn't feel like they weren't fulfilling something that the stipulation of being able to do it the Zad and the vehicle and the provision is what you is necessary today for most

00:13:15--> 00:13:30

people, that would be airplanes, and most Muslims cannot afford a plane ticket to Mecca to gender to make that horrible, right. And historically, very few Muslims made the house, which is

00:13:31--> 00:14:18

very difficult to make house. So that's there. So he tells him, those are the pillars of Islam. Follow them. So this man that they're looking at says, So doctor for IGP nada, who is arrow who will use a demo. And so he said, You've spoken truthfully, so we were amazed that I did not know but we were amazed at him or we were bemused. It was this is a strange thing. Yes. And who will you serve Who? He questions him? And then he confirms him. It's very strange for a questioner to ask a question and say that that answers right. Who does that teachers do that? teachers ask a question to see if you know the answer. And then they say good.

00:14:19--> 00:14:22

Right, that's what teachers do. I know who should either.

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

Allah says that it's the he was taught by Shadi the gibreel.

00:14:31--> 00:14:36

An incident and this is a proof also that a teacher can be

00:14:38--> 00:14:41

have a lower station than the student itself.

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

Like he mama bizarrely had great teachers, but he

00:14:50--> 00:14:53

outstripped his teacher. So

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

even though he's my bomb is less than the proper size and he was his teacher.

00:15:01--> 00:15:22

And then he said for Bernie, and an email out of Bernie and his email. So tell me about email. Now, what's interesting about this question Is he asked him about email, and the province a lot is that um, said, bother, and took me and took me in a big day. On Monday, he kept he will come to visit me while you're mad at me now.

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

He was shouting.

00:15:28--> 00:15:35

He said it is to believe in a lot. So he doesn't define email. He gives the objects of email.

00:15:37--> 00:15:46

And that's important because the Arabs knew exactly what he man meant, or email me or not coffee and

00:15:48--> 00:15:59

the man has been interpreted to be that you assert something, it's an assertion of something, or for certain amount of interest, VAP or not.

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

So from the moment that bond is text on our pizza, so he gives them the objects of faith and tells them The first is to be that now if you look at EMA, and it's related to, to ama, which is security, I mean, if my job is to be secure. If you Am Anna is a fourth form of other I'm gonna be if you look at a first form, Amina Amina Amina like the profile I said himself. Amina NASA, Baba fo the moment is the one who people are saved from his harm. So Amen. In first form is a intransitive to be safe and secure. When when you go to the transitive and for those of you forgotten your grammar from school. A transitive verb, an intransitive is doesn't go in. To have it doesn't have an object. A

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

transitive verb has an object. And you can have, like, if I say, as a result on Amazon barraba is a modality. It's a transitive verb because you can't say or thought of as a dumb.

00:17:16--> 00:18:11

It's an incomplete statement. They don't. They don't. We have, we have to know. Because you'll say, academic excellence to put on a speech is what? You don't need to add anything to it and nothing's going to be asked about it. You can just be silent after it so myself thought of as a drone, you're going to say, Man, Baba, who did he hit? that's a that's a transitive. So, in Arabic When you have an intransitive first form verb, then the second or the the, the, the fourth form, become means to make the the intransitive, transitive. So they, they take an object, and, and you can have up to it but half job. One of the ways the Arabs do it is with a preposition. So you say, and took me to

00:18:11--> 00:18:21

believe that you believe in God, right. But if you look at it linguistically, it really means you make yourself secure with God.

00:18:23--> 00:19:08

It's a way of making yourself so the movement is the one allies and movement, right, because he makes people secure. So it's a way of that you have a man with a loss of bandwidth, through belief in a loss of animal data. And the reason that belief and security are related is because you feel secure when you have certainty about something. So when you believe in something, you you have a certainty and and you feel secure about that thing. That's why people just want to know what's wrong with them if they go to the doctor, because there's a relief in just knowing what's happening to you. So believing in Allah subhanaw taala gives you a sense of security,

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

when you don't know why you're here.

00:19:13--> 00:19:16

And this is why human beings are in the state that

00:19:17--> 00:19:23

there's a lot of agitation, there's all these attempts at finding ways of

00:19:24--> 00:19:43

distracting the self, from that insecurity that the self feels without having anything to believe in. Because many people no longer know why they're here. They don't know why they exist. They ask these questions sometimes little children's don't ask why. But as people get older, they stop asking these questions.

00:19:49--> 00:19:50

So, um,

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

so this is an attempt to certify that you believe in a law that you you verify laws exist or that it can be

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

You believe in his books, you believe in his angels, his books, his messengers, and you believe in the last day. So you have belief in all these things, you have a certainty about these things. And so in your mind, there's a security.

00:20:17--> 00:20:34

All these things will give you safety and security because if you know about the angels, then you have a sense of security because we have guardian angels, even though a lot is unhappy. But he's put half of them, just like you have guards that guard a king.

00:20:35--> 00:20:45

Right? You have guards that guard a king, it's still a law that's guarding them. But the Sabbath is the guards the means by which they're guarding. And the same is true for for

00:20:46--> 00:21:05

the angels. So we have a security that the angels are with us, when you have an angelic presence, you have a type of Sakina that comes from that. That's why people feel Sakina. When there's a lot of angels, when you go to Mecca, Medina you feel more secure than any other places because there's more angels there than anywhere else.

00:21:06--> 00:21:39

So that angelic presence gives that sukeena that you have, and then to believe in his books gives you certainty, that you have a guide in your mind that there's, there's, there's a map for your existence. And then in the product, it gives you a security, when you know that things happen for a reason these are faded. When you know that you have a destiny that you're fulfilling your destiny, all of those things give you a man. And that's the key man in believing in those things. You get a commonality.

00:21:40--> 00:21:45

You get a security and a sense of safety from that.

00:21:47--> 00:21:49

And then he said,

00:21:50--> 00:21:54

and he's one of those you can go into great detail on an episode Tell me about

00:21:56--> 00:21:57

it son is

00:21:59--> 00:22:02

excellent. Yes, that is a beautiful word in Arabic.

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

Is, is something beautiful, is done as a fourth form, hacer una is a intransitive Sunnah is to make something beautiful.

00:22:16--> 00:22:32

Center. So when you do good things to people, it's an act of beauty. You see that center eladia, you did something good. To me, one of the names of a lot is that in weisen, because he is always doing things for us. So he has

00:22:33--> 00:22:35

one more scene and

00:22:36--> 00:22:55

you're constantly giving me your exam. But he asked him, because that can mean virtue, it can mean excellence, like irritating in the green. So he asked him about exam and the province of law, the law, and it was said, bla bla, bla, bla,

00:22:56--> 00:23:04

bla, it is to talk about law as a car there is potentially as a

00:23:06--> 00:23:25

right, what we would call a simile, as if you see him for 11 seconds. And if you don't see him in Iraq, that you know that he's you. So if Sam has to McCombs, the makapuu, Shahada,

00:23:26--> 00:23:27

and the matamoras

00:23:28--> 00:23:46

the Shahada is that you are literally witnessing to God yet. So you see the Fair Labor Law in the world. So when you end, the people of this mock up are always going to be better, everything they do becomes better. In the famous Hadith.

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

It's in the same collection

00:23:56--> 00:24:20

that I become the hero with which he hears and I wish he sees the end with which he grabs the pot with which he won. So that is that staging of over the abdomen, so folded, complete state of obedience. And so when he says that's the mo Shahada, and then the lesser of a bomb is that you know that he sees you, you know, that Allah sees you.

00:24:22--> 00:24:27

And then he says, fallen off the alphabet, and he sat

00:24:28--> 00:24:31

in Arabic, you have sat in the hall, Shalom,

00:24:34--> 00:24:35


00:24:36--> 00:24:37


00:24:39--> 00:24:43

Volvo is the star of the NA so you have 12 hours in the day

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

in the nighttime.

00:24:47--> 00:24:48

That is one

00:24:49--> 00:24:51

of the mother Latin.

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

In Arabic means it's a very difficult word to translate to

00:25:00--> 00:25:48

It means it can mean moment by moment that he got up immediately. It can mean what we would call today an hour. And an hour in Arabic tradition is relative because hours change based on the changing of the year, there's always 12 hours of the night, there's always called hours of the day. So so the relativity of time is indicated in the very nature of the demarcation of hours in the Arabic language. So you have because the day begins at sunset, and then it goes to it goes to the sunrise and then he began to sign up in the hall. So there's 12 and 12. So sometimes an hour and 40 minutes. In Canada, it's like can become an hour and a half or an hour and 40 minutes in winter. The

00:25:48--> 00:25:53

night hours become very long. So he asked us about the SAT

00:25:55--> 00:25:57

is the moment that the world ends.

00:25:59--> 00:26:10

It's the moment that it ends they call it the last hour. It's really the piano sad is when alarm brings an end to this whole project. So

00:26:11--> 00:26:33

he asked since about Domino, what's important this it's very important to see the progression here is eyman x Anima to Assam. And the province of item says bada Mr. Udo unhappy Adam, I'm going to say the one being ass has no more knowledge than the one asking.

00:26:35--> 00:26:55

The one being asked have no more knowledge and the one asking so now he knows he's letting them know that the one asking him he's he has this knowledge too. But he's saying I don't know. bada boom. amaravati maratea. Tell me about your signs. Amala is a sign or amount in Arabic.

00:26:57--> 00:27:17

Alone, it was said that bottom. antennae that Emma two are better, that the serpent gives birth to her mistress. The servant gives birth to her mistress. What unsaid? I hope that that arises out of that. Yeah, I shot your thought power Luna, California

00:27:20--> 00:27:42

for a bit too many years. Omar then says and then he left. And I waited a while. And there's a feat of about how long that was. Some say it was three days. And you have to remember the harbor did not like to ask questions, because the province Eliason told them cutting hammer would echo Peter Okada.

00:27:44--> 00:27:46

What color of the suit? What do you

00:27:48--> 00:27:52

dislike for you? gossip? gossip,

00:27:53--> 00:27:55

the world are filled with gossip, everybody's clean.

00:27:57--> 00:27:58

He said she said it was that

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

and asking too many questions

00:28:02--> 00:28:30

and wasting your money. Allah hates those three things, specifically, many things odious to Allah. But those three things specifically are mentioned in the hobby. So the Sahaba used to live when the desert Arabs came, because they didn't have any hesitation to ask the proper question. So it was a good time for them. Because they got to hear more. But they were hesitant about asking him. So he waited three days. And this is towards the end of the prophets of lies that

00:28:31--> 00:28:37

prophetic time here. when when when when he was walking, the

00:28:39--> 00:28:50

Yanomami attended in Minnesota, and then the province or attempted to Alma Alma, do you know who that question or was attributing the necessity?

00:28:52--> 00:28:53

to a lot of a lot of pseudo?

00:28:55--> 00:29:01

Long as messenger? No, I'm not even going to go there. I'm not even going to get a lot of water.

00:29:02--> 00:29:05

And you will find that many times they won't say that in many

00:29:06--> 00:29:10

of the interview debrief attack on us.

00:29:14--> 00:29:29

Verily, for interval, I mean, this is a key that's to make something strong, it is debrief, for game to teach you your religion, the proper size, I'm going to teach you your religion. This is

00:29:30--> 00:29:35

to teach you your religion by asking the one who's teaching you your religion.

00:29:37--> 00:29:59

The Prophet is the one who taught everything in the body. But what you did was he elicited from him the teaching in the most succinct form, imagine if not exam, automotive stack. These are the four dimensions of Islam and that is why these credits are so central and important because it has the vertical dimension the

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

horizontal dimension, which is Islam, how you behave in the world.

00:30:06--> 00:30:14

And then it has the vertical dimension. In other words, how you align yourself with your Lord faith. And then it has the dimension of depth.

00:30:15--> 00:31:05

Right? It's how you make your faith deep, which is excellent. So you've got the horizontal faith, how you relate with others, your transactions as a community, because if you even if you look, all of our religious practices are done communally. you testify with witnesses, you pray in Jamaica, in gatherings, you can pray alone, but the prayers in galleries veteran gallery, you fast as a community, you may hide as a community, these are all community actions, because it relates to horizontal worship. But then the vertical is your faith. It's, it's, it's how you align yourself with a lot. And then the depth of your religion is in Zen. And then you have the fourth dimension,

00:31:06--> 00:31:22

which is time. So you have the three dimensions, because we're in a three dimensional world, we have depth with that breath. But then the fourth dimension is the mysterious dimension of time. And what what we're being told here is that

00:31:24--> 00:31:58

the end of time is part of our religion, that we are an apocalyptic tradition. What that means is, we believe in the apocalypse, we believe that time is coming to an end, the Christians believed in the apocalypse, the Jews believed in the apocalypse, the Hindus believe in the apocalypse, the Buddhists believe in the apocalypse, all these religious traditions, if you look into their narratives, you will find signs of the end of time when things get very bad, they get very difficult.

00:31:59--> 00:32:28

The age of massification, the age where quality becomes absent, and you see, a quantity becomes the dominant means. It's all metrics. It's all about measuring things. Mathematics takes priority over language, because mathematics is a is a quantitative, it's not a qualitative, it's quantitative. Mathematics is about quantity, languages about quality.

00:32:30--> 00:32:40

In our data, the best words are those that are precise, and to the point. That's quality, not quantity. And so

00:32:41--> 00:32:50

the size of the end of time are very important. So what I want to do, because we're living in a time where it's important to know the science, because people are getting confused.

00:32:51--> 00:33:37

Trust me, there are Muslims that are very confused. I mean, we're seeing these fits in Muslim, I had somebody come to me the other day, and just I'm so confused, you know, about my faith, and why are all these things happening? See, this is what happens when you don't know your tradition. Because people that know the tradition won't get confused. They will have a man because they have men that have a sense of security, even in the midst of the most insecure situations and conditions. They have security, because they have trust in Allah, woman to what can our love for what has whoever trust in Allah, Allah will suffice him allows enough for him. Allah is enough for you, if you trust

00:33:37--> 00:33:41

in a lot, but that's based on knowledge. So if you look here, I want

00:33:44--> 00:33:45

to go

00:33:47--> 00:33:48

this is going to come on Thank you.

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

Abraham, is that

00:33:54--> 00:34:04

the foundation of this tradition we are called Abrahamic. In every prayer we do we say the philosopher Ibrahim via

00:34:05--> 00:34:10

the province of Allied is that is one of the children of Abraham.

00:34:11--> 00:34:17

Abraham is not a Jew, nor is he a Christian. Abraham is a honey

00:34:18--> 00:34:21

and he's upright. He's his own oma.

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

Abraham is the father of the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims. And these are why they're called the Abrahamic family. He is the father of his top but before his talk, he is the father of this.

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

Ebrahim is central to our tradition, and you have to understand Ibrahim Ali.

00:34:45--> 00:34:59

Now, if you look if I hadn't had a journey, it begins in early. Two. He grew up in a Chaldean area, they worship the stars in this place in which is now Iraq. This is the cradle of

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

Civilization they call it

00:35:03--> 00:35:12

and and during the time, the story that we have that we're told in the Quran is that he, he doesn't go to one of their

00:35:14--> 00:35:29

events, they should have these big events. Um, there's a story he was raised in a cave until he was 12. And he came out and he saw there's different versions, you'll find told by the owner. But the basic thing that is agreed upon is another another attempt, and

00:35:31--> 00:35:39

he looked into the stars, and he said, I'm sick. That's, that's one of his white lies. It's not a lie, like in the high data says if I told three,

00:35:40--> 00:35:59

they were prevarications, and there are direct lies. They're like, things that are double entendre. They can be taken one way, but he meant another way. And, and and that was one of them. He said that Sarah was his sister. She was his sister in Islam. And then he said that,

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

you know, he was sick. When they asked him to come to the party. He looked at the stars, as he was reading, like astrologically. And he said, I'm sick. But he was sick of their worship of the star. And then when he said that the big one did it, and he pointed with his thumb, because it was his thumb that enabled him and the thumb is the biggest and strongest of the fingers, the opposable thumb. Darwin was amazed at that. Because the chimpanzees don't have that they can't do that.

00:36:31--> 00:36:43

Where did that come from? opposable thumb, because that's civilizations all come from the opposable thumbs. So when he said that, can we leave it on? So you don't go back to? Is there a way to leave it on?

00:36:44--> 00:37:17

Yes, no. Thank you. So he goes to a place called Iran which is in Turkey not in or it's this is where he according to one tradition where he smashes the idols that come back they find it and then they remembered about him was talking about the idols they go, they get angry, and then he saved the fire prune about them was said I'ma the fire doesn't burn him. He's catapulted into the fire when he was catapulted into the fire. Julian RSM comes to him and says,

00:37:20--> 00:37:36

Did you have any need for me? Like I can help you out of this situation? He said, hospital loved one no matter what. And as he was catapulted, that's what he was then that was his victim has learned a lot when them about you. Just imagine that he man.

00:37:38--> 00:37:57

I mean, imagine that he man of that human being, as he's been catapulted into a fire. He's saying hospital level and methodology. A lot is enough for me. And he's the best of protectors. And so he landed in it like in a water. It was cruel, and it welcomed him.

00:37:59--> 00:38:18

It's anyway, I said that it was done there. The Turks claim that it was done in a place called olfa. And there's the catapults are there, they're petrified. And there's a lake that was the lake of fire. And there's fish in there. They say anybody that eats them, will get died. So they don't eat them. The Turks don't eat

00:38:19--> 00:38:24

still. So anyway, he goes around now he's with his nephew, lot.

00:38:25--> 00:38:37

Who was his nephew, and he goes with his uncle, who we call us out in the truth. He's calling his father. He's actually his uncle. And then he goes to

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

Hebron, which is what they call honey. Oh, today, the Arabs call the Jews call him

00:38:46--> 00:39:01

the voice of God. And we call him Viva La, honey. They're very similar and funny. But it that's from hula, which is Love is the beloved of God. The hula is the highest level of love.

00:39:03--> 00:39:40

And so he goes to hallein. And then he goes to Egypt and in Egypt, he's wisata, and sada, whose name is Samurai in the Hebrew tradition before it becomes Tara. She sees. They see her and she was so beautiful. And it's also she wasn't obviously wearing a new path because they wouldn't have been able to see her face. But she was so beautiful, that the the ruler was told about her, and then he wants to see her. When she comes with if I hate him, he says that this is my sister.

00:39:41--> 00:39:55

Because he doesn't want it he says, that's my wife and you might kill him and take the wife anybody knows but if not absolute, trusted a lot. He says it's my sister. The the ruler then

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

tells him to leave. And he goes he's under threat.

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

Then he sees a lot shows him through the wall.

00:40:04--> 00:40:18

Everything that happened, and when when the pharaoh tried to the ruler at that time he tries to he a miracle happens and he's unable to do any become so afraid he gives her

00:40:20--> 00:40:28

one opinion is that she was actually in an era she was a princess, which is harder, who will become the the

00:40:30--> 00:40:37

AMA, or the what's called the own one of Ibrahim it cetera. And then, so

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

they leave with harder. Now, they're both older, and he doesn't have any children. And when he's 78, she's despairing of ever having children. So she does. She says, Why don't you take her job

00:40:56--> 00:41:15

as a wife, a counselor, and then have child with him. And so he does this. And from that company, somebody who's born and if my eating is met, is the one God heard. And there's that will become clear later when because he's heard the well of Zamzam, which is called view, Shiva,

00:41:16--> 00:41:36

Beersheba in the Bible, which is Barrow shava shava, that has to fulfill the revelation because Shiva is the one they say it's in, in Israel, but it's not. It's in Mecca. And they're also in their own books. There's evidence of this, and almost 100 that is, is honorable coming up now. When

00:41:40--> 00:41:43

they, they know him like they know their children.

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


00:41:48--> 00:41:49

the rabbi,

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

great rabbi,

00:41:53--> 00:41:55

that became Muslim, Abdullah.

00:41:56--> 00:41:58

He said, then, now

00:42:02--> 00:42:03

we know you more than we are children.

00:42:04--> 00:42:05


00:42:06--> 00:42:09

we might have some doubt about our children. What No,

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

we have no doubts about you.

00:42:17--> 00:42:59

So he, he has he has his mind. And then according to the Hebrew narrative, she becomes very jealous. That's not far fetched. No matter how righteous a woman is, we know that I felt the man who had fits of jealousy. It's a human condition. It's a human condition. And it's very common, they call it the death of Baraka, in our tradition, the disease of second lives. That's a word for jealousy. This is a human condition. It's a very difficult thing to do for a woman to have another woman sharing one man, it's a it's a, it's a thing that's difficult in their nature.

00:43:01--> 00:43:18

Something that's the nature and also the, the, the Zodiac ages is the pair. And that's not the basis that's the foundation. There's reasons for that multiple marriage, obviously, or else our religion wouldn't have permitted. But

00:43:19--> 00:43:23

that's what the tradition says. One of the poets

00:43:25--> 00:43:53

who took a second one you know, there's a story about the Aesop tells about the man who took his younger wife, and he had gray hair and black hair is mix pepper, salt and pepper. So you'd go to the young wife, and she would pluck the gray hairs out because she didn't want him to look old. Then he would go to the old one, and she would pluck the black hair that you want them to look.

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

And he ended up bought

00:43:57--> 00:43:58

a lot of wisdom in

00:43:59--> 00:44:08

one one of the Arab said to them, which has nothing to do with the gentleman. I'm married to out of my excessive ignorance.

00:44:09--> 00:44:15

That hasn't been as entertaining and he will get great tribulation the man who marries to

00:44:17--> 00:44:19

go to a job in Omaha over

00:44:21--> 00:44:28

in Canada. I thought to myself, I'm going to be like around enjoying myself between two you.

00:44:32--> 00:44:36

But it came exactly the opposite of what I thought. Now.

00:44:39--> 00:44:41

Constant bickering between two

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

people so

00:44:46--> 00:44:47

what I mean

00:44:49--> 00:44:54

maybe this one happy mix that one angry, so I'm constantly between two fingers.

00:44:57--> 00:44:59

Either, any more than any

00:45:05--> 00:45:13

So, if you want my advice, if you want to live a happy life, free in your mind contented hearts be a bachelor.

00:45:15--> 00:45:18

And if you have to, then just marry one

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

that one will suffice you to arm

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


00:45:28--> 00:45:29

Little advice to the man.

00:45:31--> 00:45:33

But if a man is

00:45:34--> 00:45:38

in that narrative, it becomes very difficult for her job.

00:45:40--> 00:45:44

And he takes her to Mecca.

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

And so they go now, he jumped back to study it, and then to Mecca. Now we know also that

00:45:56--> 00:46:44

live nearby loop loop lived in southern and in in, there was a battle also where Emacs is actually comes and rescues and the the the king of Sodom actually honors him. And we know also When the angels say that they're going to destroy Sodom, Ibrahim, and he's been asked to spare the city. And he asks God and God tells him if you can find 10 righteous people in the city that he would spare. But there was only lope and the handful of people that were with him. And it's important to note, also that the Sodom and Gomorrah, which are these two Sister cities that are destroyed near the Dead Sea, according to a strong opinion.

00:46:46--> 00:46:54

This was a city that they were so divided. And homosexuality was not the only crime.

00:46:56--> 00:47:21

The what they were actually doing was raping. And it was a social practice to rape males. And they used to sit on the side of the road. And they would if a stranger passed by, they would throw stones at them, and the one that hit them first got to rape them, and then they would rape them in a public network. And they would cheer them on and clap and whistle.

00:47:23--> 00:47:36

And one of the miracles of the prophets alliance that is that they used to one of their Manichaean because the Quran says that they came with 1000s in their gatherings, is they used to pass when without any shame.

00:47:38--> 00:47:57

But it's known that this is one of the things that happens to people and you know, send them in a lower yoke. And I'm just mentioning this because it is a miracle that that people that do those things that they the speaker, they actually damaged the symptom, and they can't control their wind.

00:47:59--> 00:48:06

So it's actually it's a problem. And then you have gay bow syndrome. You have all these problems that go with that. But Lu Palin's ceram

00:48:07--> 00:48:30

when they came to raise the angels, because they came as men, and they were very beautiful. They came, they wanted to rape the angels. He said, these are my daughters. And he didn't mean his daughters. He met the daughters of the city, the girls of the city, because he was shared he was he was like the sage of the city. And he said, Look, these are my daughters. In other words, why don't we marry the women of the city hash avil

00:48:31--> 00:48:34

he would never offer up his daughters in some kind of

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

No, he was saying marry the women of the city instead of doing these horrible things. And then he's told to flee and they flee. So Ibrahima is living at this time. And he takes her job to Mecca. And the story is amazing, because in the end,

00:48:53--> 00:48:55

when he takes her job to Mecca,

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

he's imagine his pain

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

in having to leave this woman that he loves, with this child that he loves, because he even in the Bible is clear, he loves his money. And he's very worried about the fact that if the covenant goes to his heart, what's going to happen is material and then a lot tells him No, we will also make a great nation of his mind. In other words, don't worry, you will have a great nation also great is only great for spiritual reasons. materialism is not great to God. So unlike promising a spiritual nation from Israel, as well, it's in the Bible.

00:49:36--> 00:49:57

So he takes harder and his money, and then he just leaves. And he's like, what's going on? and asked him, did God tell you do this? And he looks and he says, yes. And he said, that God won't let us down. So look at the image of these two amazing people.

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

And so he

00:50:01--> 00:50:04

And then she puts the child down and then we'll get to that.

00:50:17--> 00:50:28

At the time of the Prophet Ibrahim, this is obviously an attempt but it was a valley that had four amazing

00:50:30--> 00:50:36

inroads now what these are called baja This is a it's between mountains

00:50:41--> 00:50:45

what I'm going to feed the animals in the herd Cassie me him while we're on the second

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

level the hatchery operation

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

they do most of the Rena ragna min.

00:50:54--> 00:50:57

So the Arabs talk about the Mecca.

00:50:58--> 00:51:03

The Canada was designed based on the wind

00:51:04--> 00:51:09

because there's four winds that come in the double or the Shema,

00:51:10--> 00:51:12

the the,

00:51:13--> 00:51:14

the, the

00:51:17--> 00:51:18


00:51:19--> 00:51:42

and then the general. So there's a Eastern wind which we call the Easter these, there's a Western wind, which is the De Boer, which is called in our tradition, it's called the Zephir or the the the western days. And then you have the northern which is called the Borealis. And then you have the southern the southern. So winds were very important to ancient peoples.

00:51:43--> 00:51:48

There was a lot of what the Chinese called point shade or something that they had a lot of

00:51:50--> 00:52:42

ideas around the impact and effect that wind has on you. And so they built houses based on wind positionings and things like this. So the cabin is built like this. And it's also built aligned with the moon rise and the moon set and it's aligned with the star canopus what's called souhei. And this is very important because cannabis, if you go on NASA's website and look up cannabis, the star cannabis, cannabis is the celestial navigation star. So all of the the spaceships that go out into space, and the satellites are aligned to get the canopus. Just like we use the terrestrial navigational star is the North Star, when you go out into space. canopus is the star alignment that

00:52:42--> 00:52:54

they use in material sciences. So it's very interesting that the Kaaba should be aligned to the star that men use today as a celestial alignment star.

00:52:55--> 00:52:56


00:52:57--> 00:53:00

if I hadn't had her there,

00:53:06--> 00:53:08

at the time of the

00:53:09--> 00:53:11

Crusade, it was probably bigger than their

00:53:12--> 00:53:47

grandfather, but they were still nomadic, but it's something like this, it's not much more, because the well is discovered there. So now I want to show you and I want you all to learn this, because this is important. If I have a man whose name was originally written in Hebrew, and it becomes Avraham, they call Avraham. In one of the para ads that we have the severe is called Abraham. So that's an actual Quranic way of pronouncing his name in a sound.

00:53:48--> 00:53:50

Cara, Abraham,

00:53:51--> 00:54:40

the air the Jews say that means the father of multitude. And Muhammad Arabic can be multitude. So it could have an Arabic derivation as well. But most of the oma say that it is the Father, the Merciful Father of Rahim, and they don't have the, the they say, with a heart, or as we say, at a ham or a ham with a hat. So Avraham, Abrahamic is the merciful Father. All of these are derivations that people differ about. And then his son is his marine. And then he has his heart. His heart has Jaco you have called use of and this is the line, the prophetic line that that culminates in Marissa right. She's from that Davidic line. Through her mother, she's from

00:54:41--> 00:54:42

she's from Hong Kong.

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

She's actually from she's an errand

00:54:47--> 00:54:48


00:54:50--> 00:54:59

and then you have this marine and paid are his marine has 10 sons paid out is one of the sons came out. He's called in the Bible and

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

He has mentioned several times he is the father of the arrows. So it's meridian has all these different sons.

00:55:08--> 00:55:15

Joke tan or backbone is one of them. And there's an opinion. And this was the opinion of Mr. Bahati that

00:55:17--> 00:55:30

that the Yemeni Arabs are also Abrahamic. This is a feedback about this, you know, so but that was an opinion of many of the great scholars. And it's a strong opinion that all the Arabs are from Abraham.

00:55:32--> 00:55:37

So, now that there is a narration,

00:55:38--> 00:55:41

that gives the lineage of the Prophet back to Abraham.

00:55:42--> 00:55:47

There's it that says, not to elevate me beyond adna.

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

And most of the necessity and the people lineage took that, even though there's some weakness in that they took that

00:55:56--> 00:56:12

to go beyond Adnan is not certain, but there are lineages I find it one of the most amazing things to me about Islam and approve of the truthfulness of the Muslims, these great scholars, is that things that would have been very nice to have,

00:56:14--> 00:56:17

like a lineage all the way back to Abraham, they don't have

00:56:18--> 00:56:36

it would have been so easy just to add one, but they don't do those things. There's a famous in the yard mentioned one of the Maliki scholars from Tunisia. He narrated a hadith there's a hadith Howdy, the province I put his hands on his side, but it's in about a week.

00:56:38--> 00:56:43

And so but he he put a chain with a good narration saying

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

he won't liable even though he is a scholar, he put it now obviously

00:56:52--> 00:57:11

if he might have had the best of intentions, he was so certain maybe he had a train who knows but the owner said no, it's not even the molecule rejected even though they said that the majority of them say leave your head to the side like the she and the haulage company.

00:57:20--> 00:57:21

But the other

00:57:22--> 00:57:29

side, which is why does she do it? I mean, it's, there's a basis for and has

00:57:35--> 00:57:39

had exams inside to the cleaning of late cleaning.

00:57:43--> 00:57:50

had both he said both are sound human champion, says, you know, whatever, that's on your

00:57:51--> 00:57:55

TV man. okay to leave them at the side as long as you don't play around and fidget.

00:57:57--> 00:58:22

Anyway, my point was, is that they put this heavy and yet it was rejected. So the whole amount even though they could have put a chain back to the bar, and there were chains, they didn't accept them. So it's one of the proofs of the sincerity. Now I've Nan is the father of the water called the most sadita the Erica three

00:58:24--> 00:58:27

of them in Sudan at Furman Rama and

00:58:33--> 00:58:56

he sent me an image can add about one bad disease and pass me on cannabis said he lived in a convenient, Missouri and he was not happy with me. Those are the three Arabs that's been that these put those lines together. Those are the three arrows out of it and Bakhita. These are the Arabs that are gone.

00:58:57--> 00:59:04

Like the America the giants, they're gone. The people of the moon, they're gone.

00:59:05--> 00:59:11

Those Arabs are gone. And then there's what are called an out of an album or an album.

00:59:12--> 00:59:20

And these are the pure air these are the Yemenis that have to they go back to and they have their between Kenya and

00:59:21--> 00:59:46

in y'all are the Arabs. The heavier eyes are in Yemen. Most of the Yemenis today are human rights. The Canon Arabs left after the center of matter when it broke the dam broke in the fifth century. They fled to Europe as you know you have the US tribe goes and the saksena you have the house and the Hassan who are the the

00:59:48--> 00:59:50

the tribes of Medina.

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

These were the tribes they're, they're not. They're kind of nanny arrows. And they're but they're from the Yemenis. And they have Perabo

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

The performance of it because the Prophet has Baba he has nearly to all the Arab tribes. There's no Arabs that the prophets aren't related to. It's one of his miracles. And so whenever Arabs came, he could, he could relate to them. And he would remind them of that relationship and there needs to be a seal that's written there actually has been in one of the more tenured scholars wrote, it is amazing. But there needs to be one in English that shows the incredible interconnectedness of the Arabian tribes and how important that was to the foundation of Islam. Because it's the tribe that did it all. I mean, the prophesizing was given these amazing

01:00:38--> 01:00:58

human clans, that were able to set aside their differences and come together as one of his great miracles of bringing all these clans together. But the man is the father of the Mossad. And these are the ones that become Aaron. So Ibrahima is spoke

01:00:59--> 01:01:12

a Semitic dialect undeniably, he was a Semite. And he's focused Semitic dialect but the Arabic Adnan is the Arabic That is my learned and this is from the

01:01:14--> 01:01:29

Arabs that came, the Iranian mom came to the well we'll get to that story. So I've done is the father of the Messiah diva and from him mobile and then mother has these two great sons

01:01:31--> 01:01:34

Sorry, I've not had these two great songs.

01:01:39--> 01:01:46

So you have Adnan and then you have mad and then you have and the promise I sent in it

01:01:49--> 01:01:53

say that the prompt was reported to have said

01:01:56--> 01:01:58

you know, be like mad mad was

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

and he said

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

that in the room.

01:02:08--> 01:02:08

One should

01:02:10--> 01:02:21

be like, man, walk barefoot sometimes. You know, just to be tough on yourself. Don't Don't get too luxurious, because luxury is luxury. Judea in Latin is one of the seven deadly sins.

01:02:23--> 01:02:25

Like Judea, right?

01:02:26--> 01:02:33

Don't get to be tough on yourself sometimes don't always know sometimes isn't, don't eat, don't have a meal.

01:02:34--> 01:02:49

Really. Be tough on yourself. Don't always sit in comfort, don't sleep on the floor sometimes don't always get used to comfort. It's very dangerous to get used to comfort. And Mike was Azad. And then he has

01:02:52--> 01:02:53


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

And then you have mother

01:02:59--> 01:03:05

and mother is the father of the two great, sorry, the Tsar is the father of mobile, and Ravi.

01:03:06--> 01:03:24

Ravi, is one of the great tribes of Arabia. And these are mostly the nasty peoples. So today, like Anna's, which is one of the great tribes of Arabia is going to be out. And believe it or not, this stuff still has relevance in places like Arabia. So what

01:03:25--> 01:03:49

is the father of Anissa, and then from then you get absolute or from Anna's? So one of the powerful things that he would tell me, which is one of the great tribes of the Arabian Peninsula and the province that have said the nurse out of the gentleman who To me, the people, fierce, most fierce against the jalapeno to me, but who tell me the tummies are from Mother. So you have for instance, in

01:03:50--> 01:04:04

the elephantine who are the rulers of about their mortality, certain meanings. So there's a kind of rivalry with Madonna and Ravi and the old rivalry so you have Anissa and me, Madonna via

01:04:05--> 01:04:09

Jazeera Al Jazeera, talking over there a little bit.

01:04:12--> 01:04:13


01:04:15--> 01:04:17

then you have EDS

01:04:23--> 01:04:24

and ludovica.

01:04:27--> 01:04:28


01:04:29--> 01:04:30


01:04:31--> 01:04:32


01:04:33--> 01:04:36

These are all very important people that have

01:04:40--> 01:04:40


01:04:42--> 01:04:42


01:04:47--> 01:04:50

Cap is the were the prioritize them meets with Alma

01:05:09--> 01:05:13

This is where the puppet meets with Omar. Now

01:05:15--> 01:05:21

in the Shia tradition, they argue that failure is college.

01:05:24--> 01:05:27

All right. Why do you think they would do that?

01:05:33--> 01:05:34

Sorry, they argue that

01:05:36--> 01:05:38

crusade is college.

01:05:41--> 01:05:44

Whereas traditionally, it's why do you think that would be?

01:05:47--> 01:05:47

What's that?

01:05:51--> 01:05:54

Because then it means Have a look at an art from college

01:05:55--> 01:05:58

operation. So this is a film that

01:05:59--> 01:06:01

takes them out of the parish.

01:06:02--> 01:06:14

Because of a worker's grandfather's moron, that's where he meets with, because more rough time is is he's attaining from 10 things in Mora. And then Caleb, he's also caught

01:06:15--> 01:06:42

some of the cinema shy away from that, to me, it's a problem because that was his name. His name is Hakeem also. But he was called kidnapped because he was a hunter and he loved dogs, and he had lots of dogs. So he got that name. And the Arabs, they were better than these people, per se is the one that settles before that. These are all nomadic people. So the Prophet ancestors are nomads, but we'll say is the one that settles

01:06:45--> 01:06:46

and then you have

01:06:53--> 01:07:17

as he was very important, he starts with a sheet that you will see he begins this, if you look at the properties of all of his ancestors are amazing. These are amazing people that introduced writing into the Arabs, right. So you have mizar introduces writing into the Arabs, you have all of them are very exceptional people. And

01:07:18--> 01:07:52

and they also did the first kiswa on the Kava Kava was the great coffee which is why even there the family of the the the cab cab was known for his ability to speak and influence the people so they were great orators. They gave the first kiss one. It's very hard to imagine this is thinking outside of norms. But the kids were up acaba was not always black. It was actually introduced much later the ambassador's use red kiswa there used to be red.

01:07:53--> 01:08:04

And it was green and white. So these to change colors during the different seasons. I mean, now we just think of the cop as black, but Muslims used to make pilgrimage and it was read.

01:08:07--> 01:08:10

Somebody could do that put different colors on it like

01:08:16--> 01:08:22

they still have read kiswa in museum from the way originally looked.

01:08:23--> 01:08:55

So these things are from shediac. They're the kiswa is to honor the cabinet. And it was done by the ancestors of the Prophet they put the first kiss Juan. So they've always had because what gives it a haven, the Kaaba. You know veiling gives Hey, but that's why women wear a kiswa to give them that haber. So you don't belittle them. You don't look at them cheaply, something too heavy. And that's the that's the real meaning behind clothes. It's to give people dignity. People always look ridiculous in shorts.

01:08:58--> 01:08:59

I'm serious.

01:09:00--> 01:09:09

You know, you see anybody I mean, I saw a TED talk where the guy was wearing shorts, and I just kept thinking, Man, no matter how intelligent this guy

01:09:10--> 01:09:12

this guy looks ridiculous.

01:09:15--> 01:09:21

I mean, you used to have there was a transition in life where they called Getting your first bridges

01:09:23--> 01:09:38

gives you to wear shorts, and they couldn't wait to get bridges are they big adults, and not treated like a little kid. You know, now, you know you have the little kids wearing long pants and the parents are wearing the shoulders.

01:09:40--> 01:09:44

We'll get to that one of the signs of the end of time is that people walk around in shorts.

01:09:46--> 01:09:47

I'm not making that up.

01:09:48--> 01:09:59

They've walked in the marketplaces bad yet to occur with their thighs exposed. So happy when Aboriginal peoples were

01:10:00--> 01:10:46

Going cloth, but how about people never dress like that. It Aboriginal people, that's why the original system is a sub attain, you know, even in our tradition that was the original system was just covering your your genitals and, and and you're so not the buttocks necessary because they would wear like a string. right but they would always cover their attain that's a simple thing you'll never see people walking around naked Aboriginal peoples always cover the attain. So it's a simple thing to walk, I mean exposing the brass even it's out of Habiba in the document that I'm not saying, you know, to do that, but it's, it's, it's not Mohammed de la, like the, the so attain, that

01:10:46--> 01:11:16

was the foundation of nakedness. It was the genitals and and the actual anus, not not the buttocks. And that's why all Aboriginal peoples cover those two things. Doesn't matter where you find them, they'll never see them. And you know, in the evolution thing, have you ever noticed how they show like, they show that little austro that Putin or whatever he's called, you know, and then they show the next one, the chimpanzee and then and they're getting more modern. And then they show the CRO Magnon man, Neanderthal man. And then suddenly, they're wearing a loincloth.

01:11:18--> 01:11:23

Like, I want them to explain that in evolutionary, why did they suddenly start covering?

01:11:25--> 01:11:33

Why why don't why aren't they naked all the way up? Like, why did they suddenly start covering themselves? I mean in evolutionarily Why?

01:11:35--> 01:11:39

Like they're not wearing and then one day, they're suddenly like, how did they sense their nakedness?

01:11:41--> 01:11:53

Because that's our, that's our foundational story is that they ate from the tree of knowledge. And then they became aware of their nakedness so that human consciousness is becoming aware of their nakedness. So what what is that?

01:11:55--> 01:12:03

Right, Mr. Dawkins? Explain that to me. I won't understand that. They'll say, Well, yes, we can see

01:12:04--> 01:12:05

in evolutionary theory.

01:12:13--> 01:12:15

And then shaybah, who

01:12:17--> 01:12:22

is one of the brothers of Hashem, right? And who among champions.

01:12:23--> 01:12:33

So he's from the line, and he meets with the Prophet at that MOBOTIX fatherhood minute, right?

01:12:34--> 01:12:36

So they meet at acumen.

01:12:37--> 01:12:38

So Hashem

01:12:41--> 01:13:26

has a son who's called secret and he was born with a gray streak. Sometimes you have babies that have gray hair, he had a great Street, so they called him shava. But he was very praiseworthy. So they called him shape with him. And he was raised his father married from Benjamin ajar in, in Medina. And so his when his father went to Africa, he was on his way to Palestine, he used to trade there, and he died. And so the the child, that was one of the conditions, which is approved that women used to set conditions before, as long as one of the conditions was that the child would be raised with the hawan in Medina, if anything should happen to Hashem, so she made that condition. So

01:13:26--> 01:13:29

Shiva was raised amongst

01:13:30--> 01:13:38

the any Learn to swim amongst them. And but one day they they were, they were one of the people from

01:13:40--> 01:14:01

Mecca was in Medina and he heard some boys arguing and shave with that handset. Honestly, even though save, save important, I'm the son of the segment of college and under passion. And so he was like being proud that he was from this line. And so he asked to see the mother and then

01:14:04--> 01:14:07

he he goes, his brother goes

01:14:08--> 01:14:09


01:14:10--> 01:14:45

to bring him back. My brother was the brother of his father. He goes to Medina, and he actually convinces her to let him be raised in Mecca amongst his family, because he has a shotgun. He'll have a big affair, and she acquiesces and lets him go. And then he is very disheveled, and he's riding on the back of his uncle's camel. And when they see him, because he's very disheveled from the journey, he didn't want to tell them that it was his, his nephew, so he said.

01:14:47--> 01:14:48

So he was called other mumbling

01:14:50--> 01:14:52

for that reason, but his actual name is shea butter.

01:14:53--> 01:14:59

And then shava becomes say the Polish and he has he discovers

01:15:00--> 01:15:04

Do shaver the well of zanza, which in the Bible is called view, Shiva,

01:15:05--> 01:15:22

Shiva, Shiva. That's what it's called. He discovered Shiva discovers the well, and he only has one son at the time. And all the parents want to get it because the Jarrah Hema hid all the gold in the well when they covered it up.

01:15:24--> 01:15:37

And so when he has a dream, he digs the well up, and he gets the gold. And it's a big event, and he's defending the well and he makes a vow, that is you will let

01:15:38--> 01:15:57

me have 10 songs, I'll sacrifice one of them to you. This is called nothing, nothing is very important in the pre modern world, people forget about vows. Do you know like monks have to take vows and right they have three vowels. You know they are anybody.

01:15:59--> 01:16:01

Nobody knows what the bowels of the monks are.

01:16:05--> 01:16:08

What's up, poverty, chastity

01:16:10--> 01:16:15

good obedience. You know, I heard this a true story I heard Do you know Thomas Merton is

01:16:17--> 01:16:20

very famous 20th century Trappist monk.

01:16:21--> 01:16:24

He knew a lot about Islam. But I heard this from

01:16:26--> 01:16:30

Houston Smith told told us this story this house

01:16:31--> 01:16:46

that he was he met the first time we met Merton was in India. And they were at this big hotel. It was a convention of interfaith convention. And he asked him about his balance. And he said, Well, you know, chastity took a little while, but

01:16:47--> 01:16:52

wasn't too hard. So poverty was a piece of cake. He said the bugbear is obedience.

01:16:57--> 01:17:03

But the reason you do vows is to eliminate choice. Because all problems come from choice.

01:17:05--> 01:17:08

So if you vowed to do something, just get rid of choice.

01:17:10--> 01:17:56

And so it's a very powerful thing to do. And that's why Islam takes Naga very seriously. So he made it out and the Arabs took us very seriously because they were to God. And they did not want to mess with God. And the ancient Greeks believed that the thing that would literally send immediate Nemesis was to lie under oath, they thought that would literally just zap you off the face of the earth. And that's why they never lied under oath. Now we still take oath, right? in courts of law, it doesn't stop any of these would be nice if they got zapped, but it doesn't seem to stop. People will take over and say whatever they want. Right. So he swore that and then I'm done was born. And then

01:17:57--> 01:17:58

you have

01:18:04--> 01:18:10

Thank you. Now, you know, that for us. You see, optimal people, gentlemen,

01:18:12--> 01:18:13

you know, is

01:18:15--> 01:18:18

Steve Jobs. This is all from Abdullah,

01:18:19--> 01:18:28

who's actually a descendant of the province, a lighting system. So he gave me the ability to do this amazing. graphic.

01:18:32--> 01:18:49

You know, his father's day job, Father, when when the daughter she wanted to meet him, but he doesn't want to do them. So she told him, go ahead and meet him, but don't tell him about me. So she goes to Sacramento to meet him. This is Dickensian. If you don't

01:18:50--> 01:18:54

know who's read Charles Dickens. If you're from Pakistan, it's far behind.

01:18:56--> 01:19:08

Charles Dickens. Come on, put the hand on I want to see some hands. Okay. Quite a few people. You know, one of the things about Dickens I used to think Dickens his plots were contrived.

01:19:10--> 01:19:16

Because he always had these connectedness with just like Oliver Twist ends up in the house of

01:19:17--> 01:19:21

guardian. But I realized he's actually teaching about

01:19:22--> 01:19:38

like his, his, his books are really about Congo and the providential hand in our lives. I realized that after going to his house, actually, I visited his house because I really liked it. And I took my kids to see his house

01:19:39--> 01:20:00

in London, but it's Dickensian as an adjective. You know when something is Dickensian. It's it's like a sort of a novel by Dickens, Steve job, scissor meets him, and he's telling her about what he did. And he says, All when I have this great Arab restaurant in Las Vegas

01:20:00--> 01:20:09

Hello. And it was one of the best five star we used to get great reviews. Everybody used to come to us to come there all the time, Steve job

01:20:11--> 01:20:17

he didn't even know was his son. And he used to take him to the table and take extra care and

01:20:19--> 01:20:22

Panama. I couldn't plan that.

01:20:24--> 01:20:27

Like they were living right down the road from each other.

01:20:39--> 01:20:40

Too late.

01:20:42--> 01:20:43

I'm sorry about that.

01:20:46--> 01:20:48

So we'll stop here

01:20:57--> 01:20:57

of the reports

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

from Jersey City,

01:21:03--> 01:21:03
