I went last time we looked at the
from the Bible,
and just a couple of things about
Because I want people to be clear.
For us, the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Jews don't use the term Old Testament because they don't recognize the New Testament, but the Torah, and then the subsequent books that they have the
prophetic books and the historical books.
And then they have their own political tradition as well. certain books that are accepted, are the ones that aren't
the, and then you have the New Testament
Revelation, a lot of debate amongst Christians also about some of the texts of the New Testament. So within the Jewish and Christian tradition, there's debate, they're not all agreed upon, even on what actually, the Bible is a book that they're not in agreement, then there's different versions of the Bible, for different endings, even to some of the Gospels, that different narratives. There's a lot of apocryphal, which are books that
are not accepted by a lot of mainstream Christians, Catholics.
Don't accept certain books, the Protestants don't accept certain books during the Catholic Bible, which is what proper Protestant Bible is different from the Catholic Bible. So this is one of the great blessings of Islam is that we have one book
and the Hadees, we have done with the words that I have used, which are agreed upon. Large to me, there's very few that there's any debates about and then and then we have had, and then we have the sucky ideas from that collection. And the majority of those are used validly for legal rulings that pertain to worldly matters, but they're not used according to the dominant minority opinion that they're used also for credo matters. But the dominant opinion of the overwhelming majority of scholars was that they're not even taymiyah different from the majority on that, and a lot of these followers
especially today, there's books about that accepting a has at least four credo matters. But Traditionally, the the solitary had these were not accepted for our freedom, because you have to have absolute certainty, and the solitary at least to not live up to
You know that they don't, they don't benefit. They don't give you certainty. They give you overwhelming evidence for something but what's called in our legal tradition in the West beyond a reasonable doubt, which is not absolute certainty. But
one could argue that there's always room to be could be wrong, but it's reasonable doubt. So, anyway, somebody just came up to me afterwards and asked about, I guess, he had mentioned in one of the verses, which is in Isaiah 29, about the one who has given the book and says, read and it says, I can't read, he said that you mentioned that for Christian. They said, Oh, that doesn't you don't want that apply to your profit. Because the description and proceeds is accurate. I mean, if you read the text, neither of what precedes it or comes after relates specifically to it, it's not talking about that. So I just want to go over that for
that person spirit. Okay, for your edification. But, you know, the this. This,
I say, is not an easy book. First of all, it's a difficult book in the Bible, like Daniel's revelations, impossible.
Some books are very clear and other books like the Quran have hazy verses in the very clear verses, but if you look, it's talking about
the condition of the people about waging war against
the people of God and this is obviously specifically about the Jews. And
and it's a warning about be delayed in a way find yourself and be blinded, become drunk and wine is tied to a strong grain, but the Lord has poured over you his spirit of deep sleep. He has shut your eyes, the prophets of the proverb like the eyes, and he has come to your heads to see it and the entire vision shelter
To like the words of a Sealed Book, which when they put it to the one who is literally saying, I cannot read it
for his seal. So it's like if you know things, these people are in that state, but then it said, then the book will be given to the one who's illiterate. Say, please read this, and he will say, I cannot read. And then the Lord said, because there are people drawn to you with their words, if you go down to just a few verses later talks about it is not yet just a little while before Lebanon will be turned into a fertile field, and the Philadelphia will be considered as a force. And on that day, the dev shall hear words of a book, right, this book that's given to the illiterate one, and out of their gloom and darkness, their eyes, the eyes of the blind shall see and this is a description that
is mentioned in the Hadith of the Prophet eyes and it opens blind eyes, and the afflicted also shall increase their gladness in the Lord and the needy of mankind shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. In other words, it's going to extend beyond the Jews like this message is going to be taken out to all all the people, the needy of mankind, for the ruthless will come to an end and the scorner that was that soon will be finished cafe Anakin was dezign.
And indeed, all who are intent on evil will be cut off in a shanty echo who would up top,
who cause a person to be indicted by a word and instead, and ensnare him who adjudicates at the gate would be fraud, the one in the right with meaningless arguments, therefore, Thus says the Lord who redeemed Abraham concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, you know, it's not ashamed, like Yahoo's not ashamed that it's going to another people.
Right, nor shall his face now turn pale, but when he sees his children, the work of my hands that is missed, they will sanctify my name. Indeed, they will sanctify the Holy One, and will stand in all the God of Israel, and those who err in line will know the truth. Right, those are the people that are Australian now will come to know this truth that goes beyond Israel. And those who criticize now will accept instruction, and then go to the rebellious children
who execute a plan but not mine and make an alliance but not of the Spirit. It goes on. Anyway, obviously, these are all things open to interpretation. I mean,
the Jews aren't there except my interpretation of that Christians are deceptive. And I want to really emphasize that I would not personally You know, this is to strengthen our faith. I mean, I'm not talking to Jews or Christians because the Quran very clearly you know, in in
wahida, on a mobile phone, and on your Lord, this, this oma of yours is gone online, your Lord, you know, have one Lord, this
is one oma and for the only you know, you should have the highest awareness of me. But Allah says in the Quran about the Jews and the Christians, for Takata and Roman beno boo Bora. Their affair was split into their own books, like each one kuno has been the malady ferried home, every group rejoicing in their book, right? They're happy with what they have, you should be happy with what you have. They're happy with what they have. And Allah says, to wait until the yomo piano, and he's going to explain about what you were different. There's many verses in the Quran tharaka. So when you
say, you swayed somebody, oh, come, I'm going to tell you. Right a lot tells that he's going to explain everything, all the differences, everybody had, first of all Hydra
fight vied with one another in good deeds. So I would not go first of all, if you're not trained, I mean, I have a degree in comparative religion. And I studied, I don't know Hebrew, but I studied a New Testament Greek, then I can read New Testament Greek with with a dictionary.
And I, you know, I spent a reasonable amount of time in the Bible, but I would not recommend that. First of all, I wouldn't go to Christians with a with or Jews with a presentation like this, because it's just not it's not the way
you go to start, Oh, you got your whole book wrong. And, you know, by the way, you're all a strain, you're going to hell and you just don't talk to people like that, you know, and, and they have their interpretations and everything that I presented to you, you'll find Christian responses to all this. They read our material. They read our polemics they know about us, they're not just sitting around, you know, oh, yeah, they're right.
You really should join them. I don't want to join them.
What about Christmas, Christmas presents? Well, they have
no Santa Claus. I don't know. You know, I mean, you can't don't expect people you know, just
this these religions been around for a while.
Time, around 2000 years she isn't around 3000 years is a long time. And just people Jews are present they have a, they're 5000 years into their calendar were only 1400. Right there 5000 years into their calendar. You know, they're not just going to all Oh, of course, God.
Why didn't we realize that 1400 years ago, some of them, you know, became Muslim. But I mean, really just respect these other religions. You know, my family members that are actually Jewish, because my sister married and she was Jewish. So I have family members that are Jewish. You know, I mean, our get family get togethers or like interfaith dialogues. I'm serious, because we've got all kinds of my family, we have more Muslims than any other group. Now. I'm trying to convince them democratically, we should really be selling, celebrating, he has a family, there's more Muslims now. So but you know, they don't don't think that you can just go and take these things. And people are
suddenly going to say, of course, it doesn't work like that. But for me, this is just to for us, you know, this is to strengthen our faith, because to me, when I read these things, they're very clear. They're not clear to people that have already have filters. I mean, you have to understand we're dealing with centuries of filters, and that, that, that people, they're not going to just see what you see.
Some of them do, and they write books about it. And we have Jews that converted to Islam centuries ago and wrote books, saying how this is all true. And the prophet SAW lies and was mentioned in the Bible. I have books in Arabic, written 500 years ago by Jews that converted to Islam, many Jews converted to Islam, but the Jews have their own interpretations. I mean, the Bible mentions Shiloh, you know, Sheila, that that the scepter, from Judah, it will not be taken from Judah until she Lu icom. Shadow, one of the names of the Prophets.
And Shiloh can mean the praised one.
In Hebrew, I mean, there's different opinion about what it means. But I asked one rabbi, very good in Arabic, and he said, You know, that's not far fetched.
So, and they have different opinions about who Shiloh is.
shih tzu? I mean, that's one of the names of the prophesies, and according to Italian mentions that shoe and theraplay pose also is one of his names.
you know, like I said, I wouldn't I wouldn't go Don't you know, the best thing for those of you who are actively involved in interfaith, don't tell them what's wrong with their religion. Just explain what Islam says, quote, the Koran don't quote their books. It's my advice to you don't quote their books, if you're not an expert. And we have some Muslims that are real experts. I mean, I have a friend who's who
was was I was at university with he, you know, he was a Muslim, but he knew Hebrew in New Testament Greek. And he really knew he memorized a lot of passages from the Bible, somebody like that can can talk to people. But if you're not an expert, you really shouldn't be quoting those books because you'll get yourselves into trouble doing that. So I'm not really doing this to kind of rah, rah, you know? No, it's more to just strengthen our own faith, that when Allah says that, under the age of
the Torah to review, they find him described in the Torah and God that there are verses that do apply to the prophets eyes them, and that one in Isaiah is one of the ones that the scholars mentioned, and I don't feel it's taken out of context. I mean, obviously, you can interpret it different ways. So anyway, having said that, I you know, I'm not gonna, I don't want people taking my
PowerPoint going to the local church, and they get knology shown this and all become Muslim. It's not gonna work like that. And most of these, unfortunately, most of these things end up being like football matches. You know, the Super Bowl is coming up, right? Who's gonna be in
Anyway, like, when you have a football game, like in Toronto, what are the what's the hockey team here?
What's it called? maple leaves, of course.
What's Vancouver call?
Oh, Canadians, right?
So, okay, someone that cannot meet up with the maple leaves, right and all their missing teeth. And in the end, they you know, they have their battle. Like, if it's in Vancouver, they're all like rooting for their country.
And then when the Maple Leafs beat them they don't all sudden you know become Maple Leaf fans say we're gonna get you next time and then they have their ride outside write them all up anybody wearing a maple leaf even though it's on the national flag
and then when when they when the Canucks come to Toronto and play the maple and then the the the Maple Leafs lose to the Canucks, Does that ever happen? I don't know. But if they do, everybody gets angry. And so we'll get them next time and then anybody with a Canucks shirt on gets beaten up outside or something, right. So that that's the way people are with religion too. Seriously, it's like football teams and, and hockey teams. You will get them next time. You know, and that's why those debates don't work. They don't convert
at all. Dad, he really beat Jimmy swagger, Jimmy swagger didn't convert.
And then there's times when the Christians have really
beaten the Muslims in debate when Muslims who weren't prepared to debate series, because some of the Christians know Islam, but not that many Muslims know Christianity. And you shouldn't go up, you know, against. I mean, I wouldn't debate Anyway, you know, it wasn't the way of the prophets I said, Gee, dad, in the TV accent, his discussion is beautiful discussion, discussing in the best way. It's not to be wrong. It's not argumentation. It's to discuss things to add an image and so on Bane animal vehicle, come to the word we share together, you know, it's been in
the movie, one of us is rightly guided, it's either you or us. That's what the Quran says with the prophet to save them. One of us is rightly guided. Look, it's either you or maybe it's you. You know, that's what the Quran says, maybe you're rightly guided, it's not like we're all going to hell and you're not know like, allow the possibility. Maybe they're right. Maybe we're wrong. But you need qualified people to be doing those discussions. The average Muslim shouldn't be doing that. It's it's dangerous, dangerous for them. And it's also misrepresenting the prophesies. And his religion is the only set of people that were really skillful to do that. So anyway, having said
that, is that okay?
The province ally Sam said in a Heidi, and this is another just stunning prediction that the Senate under the name of public ownership,
you will follow the senate the way senan is a path not sooner, senan, which is a path you will follow the way of the previous civilizations, hand span by hand span, arm's length by arm the qubit by Cuba, Cuba, you have a ship up and there are at to such a degree that if one of them goes down and lizards wall, you would follow this amazing
I mean, they're like shocked. You know, Andy, who's the one who saw yada, yada? And he said femen, who else?
Which is also a miracle of the prophesies, and that the Jews and the Christians, I mean, isn't it amazing that the This planet is ruled by the Jewish and Christian traditions. I mean, even though the Christians have largely become secularized, they still associated culturally, with their Christian civilization.
And the Jewish element is amazing. It's one of the miracles have been so it
has given them amazing intellectual talents,
and cultural talents and they're just a really amazing people. I mean, undeniably, you can't anybody that denies the extraordinary talents, qualities and abilities of the Jewish community to simply denying reality. And, and they're very important as a community they have a lot of influence in these Western countries to spite the fact that they're minorities. And that's not conspiracy theory. It's just fact
you know, it's not some all the Jews are in on this thing. You know, it just so happens that there are many Jews that are
professors at universities, medical doctors,
in the banking industry, especially in the venture capital banks. I mean, he's a lot of it is Jewish, you know, Goldman Sachs all these organizations, see Wall Street, a lot of Jewish in Wall Street, you know, so but to say somehow, oh, it's all the Jews. I'm
That's just stupidity. It's not Bernie Schwartz, your next door neighbor or something and he's not part of some global cabal, you know plotting to take over the world.
So but the prophesize sent him said the Jews and the Christians are messenger of God you but if not them then who?
Which is inside here Buhari. Other y'all
are on the line of the great Andrew Sian Moroccan. He is originally from Andrew cmdlets scepters where he was.
He says shipper and the shipping in Aurora means analyser haul our tropes for complete imitation. In other words, it's a turn of phrase for complete imitation. So, you know, you can see no offense to any brothers and sisters from Saudi Arabia. But I mean, it's just amazing that, you know, we have in the heart of the Arabian Peninsula now, I mean, that that could be a scene from
And the Golden Arches in the background. My god, I didn't even notice that. Yeah, that wasn't intentional. But I mean, this is Yeah, McDonald's. I mean, what's McDonald's doing in a rave? What's it doing in Mecca? Did you know The Golden Arches that like is the first thing you see if you're coming into the city. You know, my brother, my older brother is not even a Muslim. He told me almost cried the first time he saw he just said Don't they know the city's sacred. But lithia is the first country where all the McDonald's had to close down just recently, finally, after years, because McDonald's will run at losses because they know that it's hard to get the adult generation but the
kids they have Ronald McDonald toys and everything like that, although wrong. Don't give me the creeps.
If I was a kid, I just run the other way.
So Bolivia littered they had to shut them all down. Hooray for Bolivia. I'm serious. Yeah, bravo,
And you know what they said the reason somebody went down there to find out all these they said, food is meant to be prepared with love and shared with family and we don't want to eat that kind of food. It tastes horrible. I mean, anybody who eats real food, can not eat McDonald's. The only way you can eat McDonald's is because you've been eating processed food all your life, once you start eating real food, you will throw up if you try to eat something from McDonald's, and I'm not exaggerating, really not making that up.
So yes, I am anti McDonald's, I'm anti Pepsi, I'm anti Coca Cola, I'm anti anything that you recognize the name, I'm troubled by it.
I like things that are like home, you know, and we need to be cultivating Victory Gardens during World War Two people were told to grow gardens in the house and the only a lot of South Asian community to all the grandmas will grow gardens in the backyards because that's what they do in India and Pakistan and things as they grow gardens and have their own tomatoes and things and now you've got Monsanto and all these companies that are changing the natural structures of these seeds. And then this was obviously the one that we mentioned in the beginning with the hadith of gibreel, that you will see the the the the Ummah
will turn into a better hashtag give birth of a mystery is the root of a different what that means. Some of them mean and this did occur during certain periods of response, where a concubine would
be a consort of one of the rulers, and then the child that came from it would actually become a rule if that did happen. Some of them say that's the movie.
Others say that means that parents will be so mistreated, that their children will actually treat them as if they're slaves, ordering them about and we certainly can see that and then also that you'll see the Barefoot rock shop, right the the the Barefoot destitute herders of goats, Vine with one another by building increasingly taller buildings.
In another narration, he was asked, Who are these hungry desperate people and he said an out there the Arab so the prophets specifically said that the Arab
On the Arabian Peninsula are going to be buying and building taller and taller buildings. And now after they built this building
then they announced in Saudi Arabia we're gonna do the Mile High outdo that one.
And then copper said, No, we're gonna build the tallest one. And no, it's in Malaysia. See Malaysia got out done by Sir everybody want us to be American empire state buildings like this like Lego building compared to these things
you know and then you see it's just getting higher and higher. You know, oh man, the consultant man, that it's illegal to build over like five storeys
you stay humble, allow elevate you. And you know, it's a hot power law model.
It's a rite of passage, but nothing will get too high in this world, except the law will embrace it.
So it's just better to stay low. stay humble. Right. And then obviously, the board board you sat in Mecca, and we'll get to a heartbeat about that. And then jumping over you see that we're all those see all that there, there used to be a mountain. And the problems that I sent him said that's a Zulu battle at
the end of time will come to you see mountains removed from their places. And these are sacred mountain, you're not supposed to cut a tree
in Mecca, and yet mountains now are removed with impunity. For me, it's one of the most troubling things. You go to Mecca. I mean, it's just it's it's really sad to see that. Here's the plans, my friends.
That's the plan for Mecca.
You know, to get rid of the Ottoman, the last remnants of the Ottoman, there's no history history is gone. All the mountains are going to be gone. It's going to be complete flat.
It's just amazing. I mean, these are sacred mountains. No, but
Well, I think partly one, there's no sense of the sacred amongst modern Muslims. Dr. Nasir was talking about this, if you were at the conference, Muslims have lost a sense of sanctity, that that the creation actually has a sanctity that mountains, have a sanctity, you can't just go and remove a mountain. But when can't Mecca,
Jiabao law says even if their plots removed it's a negative thing to remove mountains. Mountains are our our tags. You know, they're their pillars for the earth. But I don't know the you know, the there's a there's a
Muslims don't really appreciate history anymore. For some reason. I don't fully get it.
Well, you know, we have people in California that if you try to cut down 1000 year old redwood tree, they literally live in it for two years to make sure that you can't write Julia butterfly, she lived in it, you can google her, she lived in redwood tree for almost two years, so they wouldn't cut it down.
So I don't know it's only if Muslims, you know, have some sense of
I mean, I've I've spoken to them I mean, I've never become I've spoken to the times that I've had access to the rulers there. I've always tried to say that, you know, things need to be preserved. And it's like I would even argue not for tomorrow, but just for history. You know, even even if you just cut them off, don't let people visit them, but don't just remove them. Um, we had wells that were that were the profit drained from that all of the the, through the history of Islam, they were preserved. So the bid at the base and the bid is to remove them.
All modified Amara Aziz when he became Caleb, he preserved all of the places where the prophet SAW and prayed when he was governor Medina, he went everywhere. Even Oman went to every single place and pray to rakaats for the province, right that's the proof that the oma used for the that you can go to places where the Prophet prayed and prayed to rockets. There's nothing wrong with that. This idea somehow that it's a bit out because it's not monsoons is not magic. But a typical rustle size Center is a good thing. I mean, even if he used to go on his journey, he would, you know, in Medina of a place where he moved his camel and somebody asked him, you know, I always see doing that. He said, I
saw the procession. He said There used to be a rock there. He said, I don't care.
That's not why I'm doing what I'm doing cuz he did, whether there's a rock there or not anymore the fact that he did it, you know, I want to do it. And that's a school of love. You don't care as long as the beloved did it.
She dyed her hair purple, I'm gonna dye my hair purple.
Do that, right?
I mean, there's like people that, you know, they fall in love with somebody that has tattoos and then suddenly they're getting tattoos. That's just secular love. What about
what do you do with that?
One of the signs of the hours that wealth increases? Yep, yep. So Ron, Mom,
what's up, shoot, Tisha Chara will be everywhere. I mean, look, now all of you have now your cell phones with you. You can go on and just do commerce. Now. You can buy online everywhere you want. There's commerce everywhere. Right? genre is everywhere. I mean, you can't like stay in a hotel everywhere. It's all t job. Like, we have these bottles $6.50 for some water, you know, I mean, man talk about.
I mean, that's unbelievable. I mean, to put the 650 in the bill and make me feel like you're being hospitable, like a water bottle for $6.50.
Unbelievable. Ignorance become yellowheart and ignorance will become widespread. And then a man while conducting a commercial deal will say Hold on, let me consult so and so from such a such place. And despite the vastness of the place, no agent is found that's in an asset. Look at this. I mean, now, you know, they call up before they make the deal. And do this the shadow with some guy on the other end of the earth and the province is so amazing. Despite the vastness of place, there's nobody around, he's calling somebody far away.
Before the end of time, you will see knowledge removed and widespread rot widespread ignorance, and then a lot kind of without it does not take kindly to a root out unknown person in the marketplace, who is dead at night. Right is a donkey in the day and is learned about the ways of the world, but ignorant about the ways of the hereafter. And how many people fall into that category today. You know, they're dead at night. They don't do any night prayers there anymore during the day they're just working. And they know the ways of the world, but they don't know anything about the alcohol. I mean, that's what my that's that's modern people.
At this time, knowledge will be called ignorance and ignorance knowledge.
The End of Time won't come until fetish is widespread which is for her. She is dressing immodestly and speaking immodestly, according to the scholars.
So swearing becomes commonplace. It used to be you couldn't squat when I was a kid, you got your mouth washed out was so
seriously. I mean, parents would literally put soap in your mouth, it didn't taste good. That was for saying things like hell are down. I mean, now you hear people swearing in public, they have no shame. Even though there's little kids, you'll hear people using the foul language in public place. They don't care. Nobody cares anymore.
The scholar said, undignified dress and foul language in ordinary conversation. The End of Time won't come until the word rude. Yeah, it could work. Right? The The world will perish and the truth rise up.
Shut down. One of the things that refers to the Westerners, because the Turbo Tax in Arabic means the West. In the Quran, it's used for West. So he says the hoots are Western. And they asked him who are the Wu? And who are the two codes and he said the nobility and aristocratic people. And those people who lived under the feet of the people, no one knew anything about them. That could also be interpreted, I think, is the uprising of people who've been oppressed for long times. And these people, the aristocrats living in their bubbles, you know, so this is kind of like the revolution that occurred in people. So and this is what they say the learning and they tell it but these are
telling me that I mean, I think this idea can be interpreted also, just about how
the lower classes rise up.
the end of time won't come until the wealth of the government meant to be distributed among the people becomes a source of enrichment for the few who keep it amongst themselves. And the wealth entrusted to people is seen as an opportunity for embezzlement.
And that's Welcome to Wall Street. I mean, that's
all the tax dollars to bail them out there they all are.
The End of Time won't come until people actually study for other than religious reasons. This is very important because I want you to take note, historically, all civilizations understood study to be related to the sacred. It's a modern idea of studying for secular reasons. Even if you study medicine, it was to serve the community, it was a way of serving your religion, every religion, Hinduism, Buddhism, they all had this concept that studying was actually an act of worship. Whereas now people don't think of it in those terms at all. So you know, at
the end of time won't come until people treat their friends with great respect and their parents with utter contempt.
You didn't even
need to worry they you know, so he'll draw his friends near distance his parents treating a wife well and a mother terribly.
I know there's also there on I have to say this, there's also the mother in law that has a martyr syndrome. So we know about that too. You don't treat me like you treat your wife. And it's, it's more that there's a lot of guilt. And so that's also a problem. So I'm not going to deny that that is a problem in some families. That's that's a noted problem, mother in law's that, you know, the mother in law that is going to split the marriage
as they can,
you know, the wife is never good enough for her son. And that does happen sometimes.
And then the old folks homes, you know,
my friend from Montana shared in my folders, the son of
what we, my father had an operation, and they have these.
In California, they have these transitional places where if you had a hip operation or something, and they also have old folks homes with them, because a lot of older people get hip up. So my father had to stay there for like four or five days as a transition before getting out. So we used to go visit him every day. And chef and I came with me one day, he couldn't sleep for three days, he was just so distressed. I mean, literally, he was like, he went into a state of shock. Because he could not believe that old people could be abandoned like that, in these homes and old folks homes, they're now starting to come to the Muslim world for the first time in our history. And they're a
very dark side, a very dark side, when a society begins to treat its old people like garbage is discarded, you know, and they consider their humanity paying for a stranger who oftentimes abuses those people, because some of the worst cases of abuse occur in these old folks home, and I did a rotation and all folks on the side know how horrible it is. Because the people can't stand a lot, they're underpaid and pay them often minimum wage, working in these homes. If you want if somebody wants a really nice because as the graying of Canada and America increases, if you want a really nice, something nice to do, do like really nice homes for older people where they're actually
treated with dignity and and they have
there's like learning and healthy food and, and doing like to have spiritual things and have communal
entertainment rooms where they can actually watch things together instead of being isolated in their rooms. I mean, that would be a really worthwhile thing to do, because there's going to be more and more of these but creating alternative models to these horrible homes.
And then having a segment of it 15 or 20% for indigent people that couldn't afford that because a lot of people end up homeless on the street. Some of these homeless people are old people, because they just fell through the cracks. They don't have social mechanisms. The End of Time won't come until people ornament their homes like robes are ornamented today.
that's my limit.
The End of Time won't come until knowledge is sought from immature. you've demonstrated moment us minute Asahi, that knowledge is sought from a saga when even out of the bottle was asked he says it's people that have no change.
of transmission there's no senate they didn't study with people who studied with people that they just learned from books and
and also these are the wavy above the wavy bar and got away without the Pope was asked about them he said, Do you think
it'll be fools talking about the General Affairs of people, you know, like a lot of people that go online, put all their opinions and
this that or the other. And then human human and robotic was asked who they were and even those who use their opinions over established principles. And then,
if not, the boss said, there are those who have no chain of transmission but study on their own. The End of Time won't come until people are afflicted with hemorrhoids, about us.
And this is a new phenomenon because it's from inactivity and constipation, and a lot of constipated people because they don't eat a whole food anymore. They eat processed food and processed food. Your bodies aren't designed to eat processed food, you need fiber, say now Omar said that, in the heart of a farm, don't throw out the brand because it's from the food.
And one of the first signs Mr. Rosati says one of the first videos that showed up in Medina was sifted wheat that they started using refined wheat like white bread now, because they used to have very, I mean, I've eaten real bread and in some of the traditional villages, and there's like wheat pieces coming out of it, you know, it's just, I mean, really, and you eat that there's no way you're gonna get constipated or anything like that. Those people don't have that problem. So you know, and trust me, you don't need to get any surgery for this, any, you know, you this can all be treated by changing your mind. And there's some people that have
problems with veins, you know, that have weak veins like varicose veins, so you can have genetic disposition undeniably. And that's a different thing. But for most people that can be treated just by changing your diet. And then in alternative medicine, hemorrhoids will come from being stressed about deadlines and things like that. So people will get flare ups because of being stressed out. So there's ways of treating the same but then the Prophet also said fat edge, which are strokes. Now, strokes are blockages like the hemorrhoids. They're related, because they're blockages in the body say they're almost said Finland's at heart attack in and whether that not moving enough will create
blockages in the body. So it's very important to move. We are designed to exercise if you do not exercise, you're pressing your body, you should be exercising every day, taking walks, doing whatever you have to do, but you should be doing some exercise every day. And you should be eating well, Muslims should eat well, you should eat wholesome food, you shouldn't be eating a lot like overeating. Most of us take what take far too much calories. And that's a sign of the end of time that we'll get to. So and then sudden death becomes widespread, and motor and fatality, which is where people just have strokes or heart attack. These aren't normal ways of dying people. People
didn't used to die like this.
You know, they would get sick and have time to get their affairs in order. And now they just drop dead and literally get up and drop dead. It's a sign of the end of time. And it's related to how they're eating. The levels of stress that they're under
all those things. So it's really important, say not only lack of exercise causes many problems in the body.
And then heart disease. These are just some of the statistics.
I mean, it's pretty shocking here. 10 point 4 million people in the United States have digestive disease. I mean, all you have to do is go to the to the grocery, the pharmacy, just look at the all those anti acids, and all and some used to be prescription drugs.
I mean, now they're over the counter. They used to be prescription drug you couldn't get Zantac in these things. Except from a doctor like a gastroenterologist. Now you just go and people think this is solving their problems. It's not it's masking the symptoms is making things worse. You should have no dyspepsia dyspepsia is a modern disease. You shouldn't have I mean people over it in the past undeniable, but I guarantee you, you should have no disruptive you should have no gastric reflux. None of these things. These are modern diseases from overeating, eating too late eating the wrong things. When you get to be 40 you should cut down on spicy foods and things like that.
Hinduism, this vinyasa, they give up all that kind of food, they call it register food, because it's stimulating food, they give it all up. Traditionally people ate more simple as they got older because when you're young you have a lot of heat you can digest as you get older you need to eat simpler. Meals should be light in the evening or eat early. I mean, these are prophetic principles. I'm not just stuff I'm making up. If you do these things, you won't have these problems. But if you're going to that counter in that in the drugstore and getting those things you know
maybe every once a once in a blue moon, you know, an asset or something like that. All you have to do if you really want to know is just take some some
please the toothpaste and swallow the toothpaste. The same as an acid, bicarbonate, the same thing just don't go and buy that thing. Just take some toothpaste, swallow the toothpaste, not too much.
Oh gee on toothpaste and you can od on toothpaste which why there's warnings about letting little kids get hold of the toothpaste
all these things you're learning tonight.
Towards the latter days time speeds up your to autism. Now, this is now literal because we know we've lost lecto seconds on the day, when they had that earthquake in in Argentina the day got shorter like that time is actually speeding up. So even the Earth's rotation is faster than it was before they learned the law, but also the experience of time. Young also in knowledge, the ministers and then the the tribulation widespread tribulations, selfishness, shock. And deadly rioting harsh, are everywhere. And this is all predicted. That's why when you see the same sort of pseudo law, so the law isn't, and if you say Look, don't think like these things are.
You know, it's just muck tube and it's it's, it's from God. I mean, that's all true. But that doesn't negate people's responsibility and their freewill because for not for knowledge of God which he affords the prophets he gives them some insights into what's going to happen. This is because Allah knows everything. But that doesn't negate the fact that people are still earning their actions. So this isn't an excuse to say you know, this is just
and then ask the Prophet about the heart. What is it he said a cutter after
the 90 days will not pass away until the world is in the hands of look at it through look at I mean, look at it no longer is an expression Arabs use to describe someone who has no praiseworthy qualities no qualities of virtue, low contemptible people with no redeeming qualities or character.
Okay, it's not in.
Anyway, I had a picture of a rock star there.
So the best of generations is my own hydrofluorocarbon a minute millennials than those who follow them. Those who follow after them. People were swear word owes without being asked. They will betray their trustworthiness. make promises and not fulfill them and obesity will become more and more prevalent.
Seriously, think about this, folks. Because remember, what was the criteria in the Bible for a true prophet?
If he tells things and then they come true, he's a true prophet prophesized and predicted the open obesity crisis. And this is a global crisis. In fact, the Surgeon General in the United States said this is far more dangerous to the security of the United Nations to the United States than terrorism,
obesity, but there's no war on fat.
Seriously, why isn't there a war on fat?
Do you know why? Because all the fast food companies put these guys into power.
One of the people at national dominance of health said we manufacture our food, like crack cocaine.
It's addictive. Rats, if they're given fat and sugar can't stop eating, they die.
So you give these young kids fats and sugars and they just keep eating and eating and
Then they're actually they have mountain nutrition. Because that, you know, if you watch there's a documentary, I mean, the best thing to do is read The China Study. But if you're not going to read that, at least see Forks Over Knives, which is a documentary based on McDonald's work in. And one of the things that happens is that the, the, the actual absorb, absorb power in your intestines becomes coated with all this bad food. And so you're not actually absorbing my micronutrients. And so people are, are actually eating a lot of food, but they're malnourished. So we have a crisis of malnourishment. It's not like Africa, where somebody's got a belly out to here because they're
starving. No, these are bellies up to here, because there's their bodies are being fed lots of food, but they're actually starving from micronutrients. They're not getting the nutrients that they need. And and, and, and these, this is a real serious problem. Yes.
They will fatness obesity will be prevalent amongst them. And these are I mean, look, here's right among adults, this is like, what's happening in the US and Canada, I think that you're
You know, Europe is bad, too. But when you go to the Gulf states, oh, my God, we have a real crisis. I'm serious, we have a really serious crisis.
Because these young kids are so overweight. Now for women just to not make you feel better. But, you know, women, it's natural to have body fat on the women more. So you know, it's not a healthy thing for a woman to get too skinny like these, these women now that do all the exercises and get down to 5% body fat, that's it's not about your period stops, by the way. Because you do that if you exercise too much, lose too much weight, you won't have a period, meaning you're losing your your womanhood. So you know, the women, it's okay to have some weight, I mean, and moody Tanya, and you won't get married if you don't have a lot of weight. But it's not bad to have, you know, weight. And
it used to be that, in this, in the West, heavyset women were actually preferred over skinny women. But that changed when
they started using skinny models, because they wanted the men you know, the people who look at the clothes and not the women. So they thought, okay, we'll put skinny women there. And then people's
tastes changed because they started using all these skinny women and there's a lot of sociological stuff that's looked into this, but the men you really make it you know, I like New Year's resolutions, you do min Maha around them in January and whenever, but New Year's resolutions are good things know, to resolve to make certain changes. I mean, you should do that really, every Friday, you should have Juma resolution.
You know, just we need to make resolutions to change the novel is a traditional way of doing that, because the novel forces you you make a vow to God, I'm going to lose 50 pounds this year for the sake of God, because I want to honor my body, I want my body to be stronger, I want it to be more healthy, I want you to be able to serve you better and ask a lot of help, you can lose weight, don't lose it fast it's not a good thing to lose weight fast, but you can lose weight by very simple things, changing your diets going to more plant based diets you know eating more vegetables, water, drinking water, things like that, you know, these are things that we need to be doing to be healthy
and we should be much healthier. And this is your and if you're basically healthy now what a blessing. If you don't have major diseases and people there's people suffering they wish they had the health that you have. There's people that wish they could exercise they can't because they they're too sick to exercise and then the time won't come until mounts are removed from their locations and you will see momentous changes that no one has ever seen before. And so you're seeing mountains literally just strip mined and moved and then we just amazing thing Some people say this didn't really happen I don't have a problem with it but a lot and it's some people say that you know
so there's an argument that the photographs were actually phony because the they didn't have the technology actually to to
protect the film from
the X rays you know there's a whole you if you go online there's a whole world in there about this but I mean basically I think they're they got to the moon on
a low on
and then look at this. I mean it's just amazing the technology that we have in
And it's getting I'll tell you something changes we're gonna see and especially you young people, changes you're gonna see in your lifetime, you haven't seen the new Toyota cars that are coming out that they're planning beyond belief. I mean, they've got like a holographic person like giving you directions. Turn left up here, a little distracted, crash
person in your car, a small person, a Japanese small
airplane airplanes, I don't care what they I've read, like how airplanes fly, you know, the lift and the old physics of it. I don't, it's still a miracle to me. How you get that thing off the ground is beyond belief.
And we fly through the air and don't even think about it.
The End of Time won't come until a descendant of back bond. So Python is the father of the Yemenis causes all of humanity to move and All he has is a stick.
Right? I mean,
that's my interpretation.
You never even fired a gun, except for rupees, you know.
this, to me is one of the most amazing hobbies
in terms of predictions, either as a Makita Bridget Kawashima, when you see the mountains of Mecca with holes through them, and badges to peers, like to the back edge to Patna home means shut up to bottom like I pierced his stomach, so it's better relate. And I found this hadith in a sense of Bella by the machete under under the Maeda. And Jean, because I was just reading the book. I like to read dictionary, and I was reading that book.
And I found this Hadeeth in there and then I looked it up and sure enough, it was enough that I'd be shaved. But if you see the mountains of Mecca, with holes through them, and you see the buildings of Mecca
reaching the tips of the mountains of Mecca, then know that the hour has cast that shadow of a statue. Now when I looked up any mom sealed these
color he has a really nice book that gives you the his commentary on what's called a very
unusual statements made in Hades. And when I looked up
he said had he str attune to
me this is a metaphor that indicates that something is near because the Arab say abundance and it means it's near like it's the shadows once the shadow shows up, it's not long before the thing that's casting the shadow shows up right that's the idea behind it. But we have a principal in our school, which says all swollen kurama happy that you should always interpret things literally for unless there's a reason to go to a non virtual interpretation because also the data if I say jazz A to Zed came out Zoran is a tune. You should take that literally and not say oh, I meant in a dream. Right zanoni si si manana because I said Xamarin is a drone. So if you if you hear that you should
take that literally unless I said Saddam Hussein.
Right. There's no reason to say that it was a dream if I said it, so also to paper. So if you think about this, all right now first of all, there's the tunnels
of Mecca. But here now this is called voltage Assad. That's what it's called the Tower of the sun. This tower now casts a shadow over the Kaaba.
So the and this is the first building in Mecca that has now if you go to the highest mountain of Mecca, it's equal to the mountain.
So when the province RSM said when you see that the tips of the buildings reach the highest
of the mountains for an abundance of solitude, it means that the clock in modern Arabic a statue is clock. But this is called a cyborg just saw. It means the sun has cast that shadow. So This to me is an A Shara ingenue was sad that the end of time is near but it's also can be taken literally that the that it has cast a shadow now even on the cago.
Unbelievable. No believable. So Santa Rasulullah but it is it's hard to it's so hard to fathom.
You know, really this should put your Eman should be going up. If it's not going up, you're really in trouble. I'm worried. I mean, it's it's amazing that the problems are predicted all of these things and for anybody to doubt him.
Towards the latter days, great floods will become more prevalent.
So you'll see great floods, there's also Mr. Malik has a rewind, where he said, You step through how to run
Next, that the earth will heat up, and it will cause great tribulations for people. So and that's mentioned in the video.
And now you're seeing unprecedented floods. In areas that didn't use to flood, the end of time won't come until a man shoe will talk. And that's it.
This should make I mean, I just make U shape.
This is the talking shoe. You can buy it from Nike.
Now this heartbeat, which is inside
the earth, Tolkien have fled the cavity, the earth will vomit fourth the hidden treasures of its liver, resembling giant pillars of gold and silver.
Now, I want you to think about this because
the prophets I sent him said to people and I actually worked when I was a kid. I mean, I wasn't that young. But when I was in
your junior in high school during my junior senior year, in the summer, I worked on the oil rig size they called Proust about, and I started out just cleaning up and doing stuff and then they
got promoted to
the the wrench, the you know, the pipe breaker, which is you have this big suspended wrench and the pipes as you bring them down, you have to add pipe and then when you pull them up to change the bit because the bits get broken down. And when the fit comes up, you have to break the the the pipes because they screw on. So you screw them on. And they're held up by big chain, there's a guy up at the top. I don't know how it goes now. But when I was working on that a guy on the top, and then you had my grandfather had oil company. So that's and my father was after he left
teachings, he went to work for my grandfather, and then he started wild canning. So that's how I ended up doing it. It's just a family thing. But it was good pay. And it's like 1976 and I was making a lot more money than all my friends working at at some fast food restaurant. But anyway, you know, you have to,
you have to so you have this giant wrench that's suspended with these wires. And then you wrap it around and you have to you have to jerk it. So you tighten the thing. So it's wired tight, and then you break it. And a lot of those guys lose fingers, you know? Because because you get caught some time. Once my glove got caught, oh my god, I thought I lost my finger. And they all started clapping, guys like cuz it's like an initiation if you lose a pinky or something. And then I just ripped it out and if my finger was still there, but the gloves got ripped out, so they were all like next time.
I mean, they pride themselves on being very tough people, you know? And I was like vegetarian I was meditating. I used to bring up
They really gave me a hard time,
right before I became Muslim.
But if you ever see a rig go off, I mean, it's just something, you know, in FAMAS. For the boys, it's amazing when you when you actually want to well, the hits, it's just vomits forth Now, if you look it says it comes from the cabinet of the earth now covered means the middle in Arabic, but if you took that literally again, liver, the earth, the idea of the earth having a liver, what does the liver do? What's the essential function of the liver? There's some physicians here.
The cleanses of blood.
It stores? Yeah, its stores got sugar, right? Yes, stores glycogen. And then when the body needs energy, it breaks down the glycogen makes sugar. Now, if you look at carbohydrates, which are the energy of the body, hydrocarbons, right are made of almost the same thing, except there's no oxygen molecule, right? I'm not subject to the living thing, which is in the carbohydrates is the oxygen molecule. But that one hydroxyl molecule, if you take that away, if you add that to hydrocarbons, you get carbohydrates. So this is literally the energy of the earth. And the fact that now for the first time in human history, we are we you know, the coal was exhausted, the forests have been
exhausted, because historically, people cut down trees for energy. So this now is like a laws gift to human beings, is to give them the glycogen of the earth, you know, this stored energy that was stored and where did it come from? It came from all this photosynthesis, so it's the same carbohydrates, the source is the same, right? But what's happening is just like people that over consume sugar and false energy, right, they end up getting diabetes, and diabetes, one of the central signs of diabetes is what's called acidosis, where you become too acidic, right? And so if you look now, on our planet, it's becoming too acidic, because we're overusing all of this carbon,
all of this hydrocarbon energy. So it's becoming acidic, you've got acidic soil, the oceans are becoming more acidic. All of these things are happening right now. And so we're literally suffering from the fact that we are in this massive overconsumption of hydrocarbons. And what do they call that? What you know, when they say you've got a heavy carbon footprint, so the word that they use to describe your impact on the earth is your carbon footprint. And the veniam chuna added out the hohner you know about the right man, the servants of God, those who walk lightly on the earth, Muslim should have the lightest carbon footprints on the planet, we shouldn't be participating in
all of this madness, you know, because this is total insanity. And the prototype sim predicted that these things would be like pillars, what do they call it black gold, right these pillars that are
and then towards the end of time, you will see gross transformation in people among them those who dance with musical instruments on their head museum and they will have on their heads, musical instruments.
Spending the night only to wake up like donkeys and pigs.
Now, I think she I think Steve Jobs had a good sense of humor. And see what I what I interpret this because it's a very interesting ad, you know, Apple.
Here's what I interpret. There was a film when I was a kid, it was called Invasion of the Body Snatchers from 1950s.
And was in the film, you know, these this alien
comes to the earth invader. And the way that gets people's when you fell asleep, like going to sleep has spiritual meaning as well. We fell asleep the it was called a pod, and it would get you and then it would it would grow you the pod would grow you while you were sleeping, and then you would be dead by the time the morning came and the pod was you and so became the pod people. So it's I pod, and then you're no longer like you don't you know the verb to be is just removed. Instead of saying I am a pod that indicates that there's being there. But if you just say I pod you're being has been removed. You're just a pod
person I pot and that's why they're shadows because the original people aren't there anymore. They're just pod people. They lost their they're just lost in the pod world. Right? And if you look at Fahrenheit 451 How many people have to read that in school? Yeah, Ray Bradbury's dystopian nightmare in the future. But remember, he has everybody's listening, they have the earphones and they just walk around and these days are no longer present. So this is the shadow people, we're living in the time of the shadow people. They're their shadows of their former self. They don't even have time to think. Because see what you're doing when you're just watching, you know, eight hours
of television a day, or you're listening and musicology, you no longer have time just to reflect. Your mind is always filled with somebody else. They're filling your mind with something else. And so you lose that, that, that that sense of self,
where you you actually have internal life.
That your internal being is being deracinated, it's just uprooted.
If the end of time comes, and you have a seedling in your hand,
either will become
too big bat for Scylla.
For any stubborn failure,
if the end of time comes on one of you, and you have a seedling in your hand, and you're able to plant it,
if you can finish planting it before the end of time, come and do it. It's amazing Heidi's beautiful statement. So a lot of you said them, because what that is saying
is your your life's gonna end, whether you're part of that last generation, and I don't personally believe the end of time is a ways off. We're not we're not there yet. I mean, there's a lot of signs undeniable in just in what we've gone through, you can see a lot of them. But we're not it's 2012 is not the end of the world. Really, trust me, it's not.
There's a lot of things that have to happen. Before that actually happens. But we're certainly closer each day is a day closer, whether we're around the mama seal, they end up in hospital, as palani argued that the end of this oma would be in this century, the 15th century of his era. So they did argue that by the end of this century, there would be no Islam left. And we know that Islam will eventually leave the earth, Dawkins is is going to win here. He will, the atheist will, when they when they'll convince the majority of people that there isn't God, that we're just evolutionary creatures that came out of nothingness, it's all chance. It's all randomness, they're going to win.
So you have to accept that fact. And we should find it. But the Hadees are very clear that they do win.
So and welcome to their world, you know, I it's going to be a horrible place. And they think religion is bad way to they see what the planets like without religion.
Right? I'll say, well, it's gonna be like Finland, and Denmark, and it'll be really nice and everything will be taken care of and just look at the countries that don't have religion anymore. They're doing much better than the countries that have religion. Well, then why do they have the highest suicide rates on the planet? Oh, that seasonal affective disorder, because they don't have enough sun up there. We can treat that with art lamps and just give them like solar therapy and they'll feel better. Oh, will you work on Prozac getting it better and better? You know what happy pills we're all going to be happy.
Right. Just take drugs.
And the others that's a there's a case for that. Well, you know,
I mean, in California, you know, they have medicinal marijuana. I think America probably you know, a lot of people need some marijuana because they're just so miserable.
