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

The left

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

handed there was nothing

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

about

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

actually today's lecture, by the way, we already missed the first half hour. So I only have 15 minutes to speak with

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

today's lecture and in the habit, give it the title the the other side of Sufism.

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

And actually, it

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

may not be a good title for the talk.

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

Because when you when you think of the title other side seems like you're going to bring the dog side or all the bad aspects of citizens.

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

That's not my intention here.

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

And because usually when people take that kind of talk, or make this kind of talk, and even when people write,

00:01:02--> 00:01:16

and they're really talking about one branch of Sufism, or basically any specific glyphs of Sufism, which are not necessarily compatible, and with all as for all the Sufi groups,

00:01:17--> 00:01:21

and example Andromeda, holux, bukan, Sophia.

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

And basically, he's talking about groups that believe in the concept of Western Voodoo

00:01:29--> 00:01:34

or modernism, that everything is part and parcel of a lot of Allah Subhana Allah.

00:01:36--> 00:01:42

Well, most, most of the supergroups most of the Sufi ganito they believe in that concept.

00:01:43--> 00:01:49

But most of the Sufis who belong to these groups are not Muslim, but many of the Sufis who belong to these groups don't realize,

00:01:51--> 00:01:54

I need a chef's if you read what the chefs and masters of the of the three

00:01:55--> 00:02:05

or Sufi group wrote. And he didn't believe in why this illusion, but many of the people who attend any or who call themselves Sufi,

00:02:06--> 00:02:15

any many of them are not not familiar with that belief. And they think that Sufism and is just a way of getting closer to Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:02:17--> 00:02:22

So I want to actually discuss Sufism, from from this point of view.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

And in the basic question that

00:02:27--> 00:02:48

we have to ask about Sufism, and the basic question, actually, is any that the Sufi should ask themselves? And it's not just a question of whether or not soup is or or inside Islam or outside of Islam and whether it's a scaffold or not. But the question is Yanni is the way of Sufism, the same way, as that of the problem, Hamilton?

00:02:49--> 00:03:06

And it this is the this is the question that we have to put towards the Sufi? Well, when you will put this question to the service, then we can include the extremist rupees and people who believe in us and we also

00:03:07--> 00:03:19

can include the more moderate Sufi, and those who don't go to that extreme but at the same time, and he they have to ask themselves whether or not any word they're following is correct according to the Quran.

00:03:20--> 00:03:24

The Quran and Sunnah any, all Muslims believe

00:03:25--> 00:03:38

that the Quran and Sunnah or the guide for are the guides for Muslim and if people don't believe that, obviously they are outside of outside of the realm of Islam, many of the of the Sufi groups in the United States

00:03:40--> 00:03:46

and it has no they have absolutely no relationship to Islam whatsoever. And they call themselves service.

00:03:48--> 00:03:55

And they have a master chef whatsoever but in fact, Gianni they are something that has nothing to do with with Islam whatsoever

00:03:57--> 00:04:01

with respect to those, what I will be calling moderate Sufi

00:04:03--> 00:04:06

and in which is basically those people who are stupid, but

00:04:07--> 00:04:13

do not believe necessarily in or are not aware of some of the more extreme beliefs of the surface.

00:04:15--> 00:04:35

And it for these people, the first question we have to ask yourself the first question and either thing, or the first topic actually, that they should really try to understand is the concept of the data or the concepts of innovation. Well, inshallah, to begin the talk, I would like to just mention some points concerning any bidder.

00:04:36--> 00:04:46

Because it is generally the people who follow these two free groups. They're the people who really don't realize what is the importance or what is the danger of bidder

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

or innovation or following heresies. And Alison Hannah with Tyler says no Quran, Liam, a commercial convener that Allah subhanho wa Taala has completed and it is religion or disease.

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

For us, and what this implies that Allah Subhana Allah has given us the guidance that we need

00:05:08--> 00:05:20

for our happiness both in this world and in the hereafter. And in the Muslim, if he follows the Quran and the teachings of the Quran which also imply following the teachings of the or the sooner the fallen Hansen system

00:05:22--> 00:05:29

can if you follow these things, this is sufficient for him and in fact, this is the complete this is the complete religion there's nothing beyond that.

00:05:31--> 00:05:35

And this is the complete religion with respect to an upgrade and so on.

00:05:37--> 00:05:51

And the process hilum also, and he made this clear in one of his Hadith the prophet SAW Selim said that I have not left any action that takes you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala except that I have ordered you to do it.

00:05:52--> 00:06:00

And I have not left any action that takes you further away from Allah subhanho wa Taala except that I have prohibited it for you.

00:06:01--> 00:06:24

So the province has silom and is really saying that and he has fulfilled his mission, his mission and his message is complete. And if we want to know how to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala then all we need to do is look to the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim and the Quran or the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala. As the Lima medic once said that if you believe

00:06:25--> 00:06:41

that there is some way of getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala, which is better than the son of the province of phenom, then in fact, you're saying that the province that sell them was not a true prophet, and he did not fulfill his mission and the way that he was supposed to fulfill it was as many Hadees as the promises

00:06:42--> 00:06:47

that talk about with our staying away from from innovation.

00:06:49--> 00:07:15

One of these headings the provinces, silom said that whoever introduces anything into this affair of ours and it will be rejected. In other words, if anyone tries to introduce something new into the deen, it will be rejected, not rejected necessarily by the Muslim, but it will be rejected by Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning any this deed is something that will not be accepted or rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala also the prophets have

00:07:17--> 00:07:32

said that, and include with us in the law, that all of the every innovation is lalala and in another Hadith, he said kulu the latter thinking not any there are actually two different headings in the same Hadith. We

00:07:35--> 00:08:00

can use the word Malala, which the prophet SAW Selim used in the in this heady lemon show to be in his book, he discussed this word in detail. And exactly what does it mean? How is it used in the Quran, and burada is not used in the Quran, for example, for someone who makes a mistake. And if you make a mistake, you are not called bother someone who's misguided

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

is also not using the Quran for someone who commits a sin.

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

And if you commit the sin, you're also not

00:08:09--> 00:08:35

and is the one who has this, or the one who was caught by this according to the Sharia is the one who follows away other than the correct way and take that that is religion. So in the process, Adam said that every bit or every innovation is the law. He's saying that every innovation is something that takes the person on a three core on a weight on a gene other than the deen of Allah with their island.

00:08:36--> 00:09:02

And so this hadith which we hear often and it is, many people from cook with, and heavy and many people in the beginner whatever the mentioned this Hadith, and it is headed if you really understand the meaning of this Hadith, it is much much more than just saying that every bit as a mistake or every bit as wrong. is really saying anything every bit takes you away from the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:03--> 00:09:13

And as the head he said, Every dollar is in the hellfire. And all of these are all of these things are in the health part. Also the province that tilam said

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

that Allah subhanho wa Taala puts a barrier

00:09:19--> 00:09:32

in front of repentance for every companion of innovation until he leaves innovation. And it promises to them said that Allah subhanaw taala Yani has put the barrier between the person who commits a bigger and tober

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

and Allah subhana wa tada puts this,

00:09:36--> 00:09:40

this barrier between them. And if you think about the nature of silver,

00:09:41--> 00:09:44

I mean the nature of Buddha you'll understand why

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

the promises, or we can have an understanding of the meaning of this video. And this is why some of the early some of the early some of the early scholars in Islam, they said that there is no tober for the one who committed data

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

And what they mean by that, and what this head is in the process of means, and is it Allah subhana wa to Allah put a barrier between them. And

00:10:09--> 00:10:40

is that the one who committed to that, if we compare him to the one who commits the sin, and the one who commits the sin, and he knows that the thing that he's doing is wrong. So, therefore your ending, he may someday feel like any this thing is wrong, I should stop it. So therefore, he may and he has that feeling inside him that the thing is wrong. So therefore he may finally decide to stop it and to return to Allah Subhana Allah, but the one who is following a bidder, the one who is following believes is what is following is the truth.

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

And he has no feeling in his heart or an assault, that what he's following is wrong.

00:10:47--> 00:11:25

And he believes what he's following the truth, either God is on the basis of his Hawa, or his desires, or whatever he claims the truth is following the truth. So therefore this one will never leave. Except for those and those people whom Allah subhana wa talentless guidance, and he these people will never leave their bitter. They get to that point. And then based on their Hawa, they say I needed this is the truth. They have nothing in their heart to take them away from that. As opposed to the one who commits a sin, He knows what's wrong, he's committing a sin but he knows is wrong. And inshallah some day, this realization will come to him and stop committing that sin. So it's much

00:11:25--> 00:11:40

easier for the one who's committing a sin to make Toba than the one who's committing a bit. And that's any one of the meanings of this Hadith, in which the prophet SAW Selim said that Allah subhanho wa Taala puts a barrier between the person who commits that and tober

00:11:41--> 00:11:44

also an Edison pseudonym and merger

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

which is has

00:11:48--> 00:11:57

the father says Selim said that Allah subhana wa Taala refuses or does not accept the deeds of the companions of Buddha, until he leaves do that.

00:11:59--> 00:12:07

And the prophets I send them said Jan, in other words, the one who is committing a Buddha, Allah subhana wa Taala does not accepted these until he leaves

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

and another headache processor

00:12:18--> 00:12:24

which is actually an A very important headache, which, especially nowadays, and also related to the to the modern.

00:12:26--> 00:12:34

The process, Elon made it very clear that the way of Allah Subhana Allah or Serato must have been is one.

00:12:35--> 00:12:41

And it is not, there's no such thing as different brands of Islam. And you hear that a lot nowadays.

00:12:42--> 00:13:16

And especially as I said, from the, from the modernist, and he talks about different brands of Islam, they follow this Islam system and both of them and it's okay for us and it's okay for them to follow their Islam. The publisher cillum made it very clear, and he that there's only one way to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In other words, there's only one set out some stuff. Even if you look to Quran, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhana wa tada talks about inaudible doormat, Allah subhana wa tada always uses the Nord, which is singular, which is plural. And this head is

00:13:17--> 00:13:21

narrated is a proposed system drew a straight line.

00:13:22--> 00:13:40

And then he drew lines going off to the right and left of it. And he said that this straight line is the path of almost kind of a to either, and these others are the paths of the ship on and on every one of these other paths. They are shipped on calling any people to those to those paths.

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

And

00:13:44--> 00:13:47

in another Hadith, the Prophet says, Adam also gave us

00:13:49--> 00:13:51

something related to the concept of Allah.

00:13:52--> 00:14:00

That is the Annie, who should we support? And who should we give our full loyalty and love to? And who should we be free from an innocent

00:14:01--> 00:14:07

and when it comes to people that sometimes the Muslim journey don't make it

00:14:08--> 00:14:12

and the way that they're supposed to make it. And we have, for example, someone in Boulder,

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

very famous

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

person, and he believes in what you do.

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

If you think of almost any bidder, and he has come up

00:14:26--> 00:14:36

with any when he comes to the mosque, there's some people in the mosque and he who treats him like he is a big chef is a big guy. And he they, they know they know that what he's what he believes is false.

00:14:37--> 00:14:41

But they are doing it as the kind of playing games and just

00:14:44--> 00:14:52

they like to hear this guy talk. They like to hear what he has to say. And so therefore, they treat him like a big guy. And so he has Victoria's Secret and so on the policy silom

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

said that whoever innovates something and whoever creates data and whoever supports

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

innovator.

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

And you know, even if you don't commit the data yourself, but you support the one who commits the data,

00:15:08--> 00:15:13

then these people will have the curse of Allah and the angels and all of mankind upon them.

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

And even if you don't have to commit the bit as though, but if you know something is wrong, and if it's a type of monster,

00:15:23--> 00:15:53

it is the same thing as Johnny, if someone's drinking alcohol, and you support him and say, Is this good and let me give you some more important another glass. And even if you don't commit the sin yourself, if you are pleased with the sin, and you are as punishable for the center's The one who doesn't, similarly, any with respect to data, and even if you don't commit the bit, yourself, if you support it, then any as the process film said, you will be cursed by Allah subhanaw taala, and by the angels and all of mankind.

00:15:57--> 00:16:01

So these are any when we talk to people who are who are Sufi,

00:16:02--> 00:16:05

who are what we call modern, Sufi.

00:16:06--> 00:16:22

And they have to they have to realize the importance of this concept of Buddha. This is one of the reasons and one of their shortcomings. They don't realize this concept of data and how dangerous data is for the dean for the junior

00:16:23--> 00:16:54

and they don't realize how dangerous but as for their own religion for this life and for the life in the hereafter. And he just to summarize some of the points that we get from the headiest and different verses in the Quran. Some of them I didn't, didn't mention here, and he's the one who was following in an innovation. He his journey not following the guidance of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Secondly, he is following one of the paths of the shift on Thirdly, his innovations are rejected by Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:56--> 00:17:09

Fourthly, the actions of goodness while he follows the innovation are not accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Simply there is a barrier and put, or there's no repentance for him until he gives up his innovation.

00:17:10--> 00:17:24

Those people in whoever supports them are cursed by Allah subhanho wa Taala with Malaika and the angels and all of mankind and what they're doing is dorada or miscarriage and every misguidance is in the Hellfire

00:17:25--> 00:17:38

and also they'll be they'll be turned away from the the SR system or the any holes of the of the province that sell them on the day, the day of judgment. And also any last point is

00:17:39--> 00:17:45

is that they believe that they are doing something good. While in fact candidate deeds aren't doing

00:17:46--> 00:17:48

any as I said, introductory

00:17:50--> 00:18:00

and introductory discussion and if we haven't gotten really to Sufism yet, but Sufism, any I don't it doesn't matter what rica or what group of Sufi you're talking about.

00:18:01--> 00:18:08

Annie, anyone you choose all of them. And l stated plainly here all of them are from

00:18:10--> 00:18:16

all of them. And I can bring your teachings any there's over Well, there's over any maybe 1000 now.

00:18:17--> 00:18:19

And Jerry used to have many of them,

00:18:20--> 00:18:30

but not that many anymore. And there's lots of sort of, and I cannot claim that I've studied all of them, but I've studied over approximately 100 or so.

00:18:32--> 00:18:43

And yeah, and every one of them has been every one of them. Some of the videos cover and it's really something that takes them out of Islam, some of the bitter as not COVID.

00:18:44--> 00:18:57

But the any The point is in the point that we have to make young people who are affected by Sufism, realize that even if the Buddha does not cover all of these principles, all these headings with dimension applied to them.

00:18:58--> 00:19:12

And some people will say okay, it's not copper, so we don't have to worry about any if we understand that there is the role and we understand this led to the process, and then we see how dangerous it is. And we have to convey this message to those unfortunate people and who

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

follow any kind of data.

00:19:18--> 00:19:20

There's two questions.

00:19:21--> 00:19:24

Two very important questions I need to tweak and so

00:19:27--> 00:19:29

the first one is what is the goal of Sufism?

00:19:31--> 00:19:49

And he they claim and when you talk with them, they claim that they are they're Muslims and they are trying to do Jani they are Sophie's for a specific reason. And they have a specific goal. That's why they're so busy instead of something else. So the first question and Is this what is the goal or what is the purpose of Sufism?

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

And he is there from the extreme groups, which is they said we're not going to talk about them if they say any of the goal is Western would you or Hello

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

He had his concept which clearly going into cron, and the sooner the better system and we are not concerned with them,

00:20:09--> 00:20:24

but anywho the the answer that you should get from most service and this is actually why supposedly any Sufism was was created the goal of Sufism is Tolkien

00:20:25--> 00:20:28

and in the purification of the person's soul

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

and Sufism was created

00:20:33--> 00:20:47

and the purpose of Sufism is to purify the individual soul and when someone becomes suevey in most cases he believes that it becomes super because he believes this is the way or the road to purify his soul.

00:20:49--> 00:20:53

So the the the points related to this now is that

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

Danny are Sufi saying that

00:20:57--> 00:21:03

there is no teskey in Islam and Islam is understood by an innocent man.

00:21:04--> 00:21:11

And he did that if you follow the Quran and Sunnah, that there is no test here that you will not be any purify your soul

00:21:12--> 00:21:23

for are they claiming that yes, there is some sense here if you follow the Quran and Sunnah, but if you follow the way of the service, Danny This is a better way to make this key or self purification

00:21:25--> 00:21:36

this second answer and which you will hear a lot is that any many stupid to say okay the following the Quran and Sunnah is fine or following any of the way of

00:21:37--> 00:21:43

the people who are known as cinema Jamal is fine. But they'll say at the same time that our way is better.

00:21:46--> 00:21:48

Well, this is Jani.

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

Very dangerous, obviously. In fact, this is actually type of coffee, although they did not they may not realize

00:21:57--> 00:22:10

and if you feel that if anyone believes that there is any guidance, or any way of getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala that is better than what Allah subhanho wa Taala himself revealed in the Quran and the Sunnah, this was cooked

00:22:13--> 00:22:56

and he sort of they're saying that their way of peskiest Yan is better than that of the promises in them. And he this is this is critical. But can you also it may be just because of ignorance on their part and he they don't realize that was the promises in abroad and in the process of him did not just bring Sharia or laws, but also the promises to them or the the main thing that the province has brought is he showed us how to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala how to earn the level of loss of handling data. It was the province that sent him who showed us anyhow to purify ourselves in the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala loves and this is why I listened to what Allah says in the Quran. The

00:22:56--> 00:22:57

Quran is a computer so

00:22:59--> 00:23:10

if you have in the in the Messenger of Allah the best example also look ahead with Allah tells the look of the hills of coal in Cancun to heaven Allah to be only

00:23:12--> 00:23:38

mala philippou can he say to them? Can you telling the provinces and emphases to them and if you truly love Allah subhanho wa Taala which is what the Sufi is claiming, in fact, all believers any claim to love Allah subhana wa Tada. Then tell them you need to Follow me Follow the problem Hamas SLM and then Allah subhanho wa Taala will love them, and will, will forgive the sins.

00:23:40--> 00:23:45

All of these Danny pointed out to the fact that the real and in the real sense here.

00:23:47--> 00:24:10

The real self care and the real self purification, the real way of getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Again, there's only one is that as explained in the Quran, or sooner, and if anyone follows any other way of kooskia then in fact Jenny has fallen one of the paths of the of the ship on but unfortunately in the in the history of Islam.

00:24:12--> 00:24:18

And if you study the history of Islam, that many, many important things that occurred then in the history of Islam.

00:24:20--> 00:24:34

Unfortunately, many books of history they usually talk about what's happened to the government and there was this bad on this struggle and so forth. But and if you look at the history of Islam, something very dangerous for the Muslim ummah.

00:24:35--> 00:24:54

And that is that these different topics have updated and intense here. And he fell into the hands of different people, and people supposedly became specialists in these areas. For example, a play that I played was mostly dealt with with the philosophers and the people known as

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

in the lenses we discussed

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

Last night, were poorer for these people. any athlete is basically something rational something in the mind. And it is not something I need to drive the person, I played it from Islamic point of view, which is actually in the Quran, the word use Rafi is actually imagined. And it is something that drives human beings. But for these philosophers, and for these people, violent calamities is something theoretical, there's no relationship between what you believe, and really what you put into practice. And they didn't, they did not see the connection, work.

00:25:35--> 00:26:03

And it became in the hands of the alcohol. And they dealt with them in a very dry way, many times. And he just says basically, as long without siani, relating the aspects behind it, and what is the what is the motivating force behind implementing these laws. And unfortunately, as I said, it says here are self purification fell into the hands of those people who call themselves Sufi

00:26:05--> 00:26:06

Was

00:26:07--> 00:26:15

there any must have were there ways, was given any lots of boost by Mohammed Al ghazali.

00:26:18--> 00:26:25

In his book, a hell of a dean and his writing and elegance early in this book, and he

00:26:27--> 00:26:32

actually, not in this book, but it's in another of his writing the book Gani.

00:26:33--> 00:26:36

The meaning of the title is my deliverance from error, I don't remember the

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

meaning of the wording in Arabic.

00:26:42--> 00:26:54

And this book, Al ghazali, made this exact mistake with respect to teskey, that I just mentioned, and he that there is some way of teskey a better than that, of the problem himself.

00:26:55--> 00:26:59

He wrote in that book, he and he talking about his life, he said, I learned,

00:27:00--> 00:27:06

I learned with certainty that it is, above all, the Sufi, who walked on the road of God.

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

There, their life is the best life, their method, the soundest method.

00:27:13--> 00:27:19

And he said, We're the intellect of the intellectuals and the learning of the learning and the scholarship of the scholars

00:27:20--> 00:27:31

who are versed in the in the details of the revealed truth, brought together in an attempt to improve the life and character of the mystics or of the movies, they would find no way of doing so.

00:27:32--> 00:27:43

And he's saying that even if all the scores of the Quran was similar, tried to find a better way than the way of the Sufi, they will not be able to do so. Well, of course, he was very influential unfortunately, and he he

00:27:45--> 00:28:24

and it because of this statement and other statements that he made, he gave me an issue physical place in Islam, the orientalist they praise him a lot, by the way, he was special clean in the kuffar they play a praise about having an earlier life because they said, he brought to prism into Gani the orthodoxy or into any soon ism, or listen to a demand. And they are very happy with that, because they know any what the soup is. And so therefore, any they try to praise them exactly. Because of that, and also, and in many of our Muslim brothers, who read their books and read other books, they're also fooled by this and they also praise bizarrely for the way he tried to make a

00:28:24--> 00:28:38

compromise between the 70s and the 80s. And he actually what he did was was very damaging, and it because he tried he made he made the Sufism legitimate in the eyes of many, many Muslims.

00:28:41--> 00:28:52

With respect to with respect to the 10th year, we can now go to any since that is basically the goal of Sophie, we can now go to,

00:28:54--> 00:28:58

to the way of the movies, any aspects of history and

00:29:00--> 00:29:03

almost all of the sort of, if not all of them,

00:29:04--> 00:29:12

and they believe that the person has to pass through different Nakama different levels.

00:29:13--> 00:29:14

And you start

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

as a beginner and you'd like in school, you start to the beginner you go to the intermediate level and so forth and so forth. And indeed they call this nakoma or any mystical station

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

unfortunately any day they are taking concepts any which are related to Islam

00:29:36--> 00:29:54

and either taking concepts for example, from the Quran and from Hadith. Sometimes they bring in their own concepts and he originally just to give a little background about the about the Sufi and he originally basically they were very devoted people and he were following the Quran and Sunnah to the best of their ability and he too.

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

He could almost say, but it probably isn't a good way to say it.

00:30:01--> 00:30:20

And almost to the point of extremism Can you started with people for example, who when they read the Quran, and he they used to think because of the words of Quran, and he very devoted people, especially in Basra, mostly comes from Basra, Iraq. Most of the Messiah, by the way come from come from Iraq.

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

After some time, any reason these mistakes they call are these stupid any, they begin to develop their own terminology.

00:30:31--> 00:30:40

But there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with using your own terminology. As long as the meanings of the terminology are consistent with the Quran.

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

For example, people talk about hate,

00:30:44--> 00:30:56

and they divide it into different concepts, different aspects for hate, the Lolo here, will be able to handle that most of us and you don't find this anywhere in the Quran, or Hadith. And so he's divided into these three,

00:30:57--> 00:31:06

that can as long as the meaning is correct, and is consistent with corrosiveness, nothing, nothing wrong. Other people divide two hate into two categories to hate the Bible.

00:31:07--> 00:31:17

Or Nia, nothing wrong with that as long as it's consistent. So, terminology by itself, as long as, as long as the terms are defined correctly.

00:31:19--> 00:31:40

There's nothing wrong with it. So they begin to have their own terminology. But then after that, Danny, especially when they're influenced by other cultures, by Christian mystics, and by Hindu mystics, and if they begin to develop their own philosophy, and their own app, either, really, any Sufi has their own athletes, which is very much different from the Quran instrument.

00:31:42--> 00:32:10

And he, they believe, for example, in the course of the the the person who manages all the affairs of the world, and he has, I don't know how many newcomers, and so on and so forth. I don't remember all the numbers in the in the pyramid that they have, I mean, this is updated, this is not data, which is has nothing to do with Islam. So they develop their own philosophy or their own update over time, which is not true for the, for the, for the original Sophie's.

00:32:12--> 00:32:28

And they developed as I said, these different mahkamah two different stages that the Muslims are supposed to pass through and as I said, and in some of these stages, and they actually are the term originally they come from the Quran from editing purposes. So what I would like to do

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

today

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

is I want to to actually went through more but basically I'm going to be quoting from two, two books

00:32:42--> 00:32:43

of the Sufi,

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

which are considered Gani, very moderate Sufi.

00:32:48--> 00:32:51

One is the book by kilberry.

00:32:52--> 00:33:09

On the Muslim Sufi, the doctrinal Sufi, and the other is by an A person by the name of Oliver of man, and hood, really, and this book is called crush Matthew. But this is one of the most important books in Sufism.

00:33:10--> 00:33:18

Almost every trick today, and you will find you'll find them quoting this book in chapter 11 of man.

00:33:20--> 00:33:48

And I will just biani discuss some of the and we don't have much time left but I'll just discuss some of the concepts What did the Sufi say about these concepts? And what is the actual kind of position from the Quran and Sunnah from these concepts, and we'll see any that there is teskey or there is a way of self purification from the Quran and Sunnah. And that way is much pure and much Shani Of course, obviously, because it's from Allah subhanho wa Taala much greater and much more beneficial than the way of the serpent

00:33:49--> 00:33:53

and he the nakoma that they discuss include for example, sovereign

00:33:55--> 00:34:04

wealth have any others what what kill me and for the stupid, these are stages that you have to go through.

00:34:05--> 00:34:32

Before for as listener will demand this concept of having patience or trust in Allah subhana wa tada and low promise data and it is enough stages that you go from one to the other. But these are these are characteristics that every Muslim should possess. These are characteristics that every believer should possess. Every believer should have put the Lord personal listened to Allah and have silver and have regard for what Allah subhanaw taala has

00:34:33--> 00:34:50

as wills and so forth. And but for the Sufi, they are any stages as 100 he wrote in Kashmir manual. He said it is not permissible that any person should quit his patient without fulfilling the obligations zero.

00:34:52--> 00:34:55

Thus, the first station is Toba repentance.

00:34:57--> 00:34:59

Then comes conversion or never

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

Then renouncing renunciation

00:35:03--> 00:35:18

and then trusting God and so on, it is not permissible that anyone should pretend to conversion without repentance or turn station without conversion or to trust in God without renunciation and it was their thing is this.

00:35:19--> 00:35:28

Any you have Toba? By then you have enabled by then you have by then you have worked and you cannot have work. If you don't have

00:35:30--> 00:35:50

any they said this has allowed us you have to go through these stages. While from the point of view, I listen to Gemma, and we should have all these characteristics at one time. We should make Toba we should have, we should have what caribou sometimes we may or may not be perfectly things but all of these characteristics we should have.

00:35:51--> 00:35:59

Danny, even if even if any. We don't make Toba concerning something, which is that should still have properly knowledge

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

and why we didn't make Roman something should we make the mistake of not only having

00:36:08--> 00:36:10

token anomalous in hand with dad

00:36:12--> 00:36:26

with respect to turbo for example, and you see that neither concepts many times their concepts really have nothing any they take this limit concept they take the word from the Quran, but the way they explain it to me has nothing, nothing to do with

00:36:27--> 00:36:28

with an Akita.

00:36:30--> 00:36:33

With respect to Toba, for example,

00:36:37--> 00:36:40

hydrating in cash flow module B says that

00:36:45--> 00:36:51

in as much as any, I'll give you the meaning some of their terminology. Even in English, it's not.

00:36:52--> 00:36:56

And it may be a little bit difficult for some brothers who are not that well acquainted in English.

00:36:58--> 00:37:04

Basically, he's saying that Toba the meaning of Paul rose to forget your own self organic to forget your

00:37:07--> 00:37:11

journey. Danny, if you forget your nerves, how will you remember your sin, your essence?

00:37:12--> 00:37:30

And he said it is inconceivable. It is inconceivable for the homeless. Danny they have the concept of homeless which are the special people the elect people, those who are closest to Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is inconceivable for the homeless. What is impossible for the homeless to make Toba.

00:37:32--> 00:37:44

And it is impossible for the forest to make Toba because according to them manual course they don't do anything from their own. everything they do is for for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and therefore it is not possible

00:37:45--> 00:37:47

for them to make Toba

00:37:48--> 00:38:03

and he said that one of the quotes one of the early Sufi saying this that his name is man has no part in repentance. Because repentance is from God command and not from men to God.

00:38:05--> 00:38:10

So what he's saying is the toolbar is not something the human being does, it comes from God

00:38:11--> 00:38:12

and you cannot make COVID

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

suggest something and it is a gift from Allah subhana wa tada nettement

00:38:18--> 00:38:26

and even this statement actually contradicts what they're saying they're saying that you to the stage you have to pass through that you make Toba and then the and they say that

00:38:28--> 00:38:40

any there is no there is no no way to make to actually maintain cannot make them and if we go just to take some points from this topic

00:38:41--> 00:38:43

if we go to the center the Policy Center

00:38:44--> 00:38:49

we see that the policy film any according to the supervision the professor center from the

00:38:50--> 00:38:52

from those special people or not.

00:38:54--> 00:39:01

I guess the first step to answer that question. And if he's not from the from the forest, Danny This means they are people much better than the provinces

00:39:02--> 00:39:03

which is again Yeah, and

00:39:05--> 00:39:09

if he's from the US, then yarning should not be making COVID

00:39:10--> 00:39:14

like can we know that the province of psyllium used to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for forgiveness.

00:39:15--> 00:39:35

And he has the Bravo system said 70 times a day and then he said 90 times a day why even Allah subhana wa tada orders him in the Quran and he after the victory has come to him Allah subhana wa tada says either I'm not gonna lie we'll put right in Cologne if ik de la jolla for sub. The hamburger a baker was

00:39:37--> 00:39:38

no candidate to have

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

any almost no data is ordered in the province of Tulum and it is directly to the province and cillum that even after the victory has come and and the Annie all the people the people in masses enter the deen of Allah Subhana which Allah, Allah subhana wa tada saying to pray any praise

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

the Lord

00:40:00--> 00:40:07

Annie give the bridge through the phases of almost $100 your Lord and ask for his forgiveness for he is ever

00:40:10--> 00:40:13

ready to show mercy or to repentance.

00:40:15--> 00:40:16

And he just the small point

00:40:19--> 00:40:49

right there shows Danny that and it is no such thing as a horse that you reach a certain stage. By the way, that's true that the soup is they believe that when you reach a certain stage, all of these nakoma all of these things that you went through and you have no meaning whatsoever. When you reach a certain stage and you don't care anymore, you don't care anymore for Toba, you don't care you can you are just above everything and beyond any all of these kinds of concepts again, this is your journey.

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

This is the type of athlete as I said it is the type of belief.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

The This has nothing to do with

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

with

00:41:01--> 00:41:31

with Islam. One also one important point that is just to talk about the Toba this or any few seconds more is that it is more important to make Toba from mistakes in Al Qaeda than it is to make Toba from sin. And in this the same the same kind of concept. It is the same concept that I talked about before when I said there is no total repentance for the one who makes who commits better.

00:41:32--> 00:41:54

And in the reason this it's more important to make Toba from mistakes now Qaeda again is the same concept. And if you believe that something is wrong, then inshallah you might change your behavior. But as long as you don't believe something is wrong, and you will not change your behavior. And this is a very important point Kenny for four down in the United States. And it is a point Danny that is missing.

00:41:55--> 00:42:05

And when people make doubt or when they are talking to Muslims in the United States, Danny they and many people, many Muslims, for example, take

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

the rubber or interest from the bank.

00:42:11--> 00:42:38

Many women for example, don't wear hijab in the United States. Many men do things which are haram obviously, but many, many people who do the thing generally they believe that there's nothing wrong with it, that it is okay that there's nothing wrong with inshallah, nothing will happen to them. So it is important that we correct their data or their beliefs about the dangers of these things first, because otherwise, then you will never get them to change their, their behavior

00:42:40--> 00:42:43

with respect to have the or love

00:42:45--> 00:42:53

again, in touch with Matthew and he their concept This is a concept of hub burn, you can again see if it has any relationship to the person

00:42:55--> 00:43:02

who's really is quoting crochet, which is the result of crochet he also is one of their most important books.

00:43:04--> 00:43:18

basically saying is that love is the effacement of the lovers attributes, and the establishment of the beloved as needed. In order to love Allah subhanho wa Taala you lose all of your attributes.

00:43:21--> 00:43:33

And then finally, at the end of this quote, he says that thus in love for his friends, and in love for the beloved Allah subhanho wa Taala the person becomes an enemy to himself.

00:43:35--> 00:43:46

And he this, basically this is close to the concept of infinity. And he did the only way you can live on this planet with Allah is to become an enemy to yourself to give up all of your attributes and so on.

00:43:47--> 00:43:53

Well this sounds very nice By the way, that's the problem with Sufism, some of the things that he when you listen to it,

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

and especially if you're not familiar with

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

it sounds

00:43:59--> 00:44:12

sounds interesting. They have some very interesting writings and needs to say the least. But if you compare any what he's saying any from the Quran was sooner. If you ask for example, that the prophecy cillum love Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:44:14--> 00:44:25

and he did the power system level lesson again. And his questions are always if he answered one way there Catherine, if they say no all the provinces that just love Allah subhana wa tada and

00:44:26--> 00:44:59

they say okay, the process and 100 level Allah subhanho wa Taala. So then you have to manage this process and ever come to this point, can he that he negated his own characteristics? Does he get negated? Can he has his humanity that he hated his own? So do we find any headaches in which the power system and it gave us any idea of that nature? Or is there any verse in the Quran, which the end would give us an idea of that, coming from the broken system, and not just the Profit System, how much is to have and so on? Can he don't find this concept they took

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

The concept of hubbub from the Quran, they use this term, and they fool many Muslims with it. And they give it a very nice, I didn't quote everything I have here, but they give it Yanni. Very nice, very mystical meetings. But the point is that those meanings are not correct according to komatsuna. And if we want to purify ourselves, we don't care for adults with this kind of nonsense. But we have to stand up for ourselves according to the way of the chromosome from a chromosome now, and it's very clear that the way that you love Allah subhanho wa Taala above anything else, and you love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you hate for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada. You don't

00:45:44--> 00:45:50

have to deny your use your soul, or your characteristics or you can even begin to hate yourself. I

00:45:52--> 00:45:57

don't know what the psychologists nowadays would say about someone who hates himself in this kind of

00:45:58--> 00:46:08

habit. But the point is Jani is that you love for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you hate for the sake of Allah subhana wa tada that is the truth

00:46:09--> 00:46:14

that we find in the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim that we find in the Quran and so on so forth.

00:46:18--> 00:46:21

I don't want to take too much

00:46:22--> 00:46:27

of your time so I'll go through quickly quickly some of these also a turtle

00:46:29--> 00:46:34

and if you read the if you read the any work they have written about torkel

00:46:36--> 00:46:42

and you find again that their that their meaning of the torkel again is something that goes against the Quran.

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

It will kill Abadi in his work on the doctrine Sophie's

00:46:50--> 00:46:52

she stated that one of the great Sufi said

00:47:03--> 00:47:28

he said Allah subhana wa tada has known everything this will occur and nothing will occur without his permission and without his creating the deeds were any the concept of torkel and the sufia or according to the Sophie's and is completely opposite to it. They don't believe in working according to us, but because this according to them goes against what kill it goes against or the DNS server.

00:47:30--> 00:47:56

And he was the professor chillin played in Hades, with the strong believers better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer, and in both of them is good. Strive for what benefits you strive for what benefits you and seek help and Allah and do not be too weak to do so. If any affliction comes to you do not say if I had done such and such such and such would have happened. But instead say that Allah decrees what he wishes

00:47:59--> 00:48:29

and the door and the word low any or if opens the door for the chiffon. So this Hadith of the Prophet says cinemas is killing us journey that we have to do those things that will we think will benefit us and we have to follow this. And again, this is one of the aspects that the Sufi journey I'm missing and the concept of torque will actually the concept of Torsten will resolve with silver Can he immediately or or completely denied any aspect of

00:48:31--> 00:48:41

ordering good and erratic eradicating Allah subhana wa tada tells us in the Quran, and chromogenic region in Naropa.

00:48:43--> 00:49:19

One of the things that separates this oma this nation from the other almost from the previous prophets, and he all of them believed in Allah subhanho wa Taala. The thing that separates Danny this oma from the other from the earlier nations is this Yanni we ordered the good and eradicate evil. But the soup is Danny they because of the concept of what the Lord trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala about being pleased with whatever whatever Allah subhana wa Taala has any has allowed to occur in this world. Can he they they completely deny

00:49:20--> 00:49:22

any any rule for medical

00:49:23--> 00:49:34

marijuana in America doesn't make any sense to them. Gary, if you're if there's evil someplace and there's monster someplace and you try to reject it, then you're going against Russia was working.

00:49:37--> 00:49:59

Kenny and basically one of the reasons that's true and is that they made this mistake is because they confused or they did not distinguish between two types of wills of Allah subhanho wa Taala Eros konia wa Eros eroded the Sharia and Is it over? So hanworth Allah allows things to happen in this world. According to him

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

His wisdom and according to the laws that he created this world, whether or not Danny is pleased with it or not, in other words, if someone wants to be captured, Allah subhanho wa Taala allows him to be kept.

00:50:12--> 00:50:26

That is really related to the laws of Tony or the laws of creation that can with respect to Sharia, what Allah subhanho wa Taala wants from us, and what Allah subhanho wa Taala knows from us obviously Allah subhanho wa Taala and he does not love

00:50:28--> 00:50:37

does not love Cooper on our part does not love me and so on and so forth. With respect to also to a summer River.

00:50:39--> 00:50:45

Probably I'll just read this and then and then and then enjoy the talk

00:50:47--> 00:51:08

with respect to again and fish will crush you with respect to our patients and naroda satisfaction with what Allah subhana wa tada decreed. This is what Judy hoadley allegedly wrote. And he won as I said, one of the classic works of Sufism, that almost all sort of nowadays quote.

00:51:10--> 00:51:20

He said it is all it is the same command any two human beings it doesn't matter any human beings is talking about really the Sufi and the true Sufi,

00:51:21--> 00:51:23

whether he is burned in the fire of hell,

00:51:24--> 00:51:37

or illuminated by the lights of mercy doesn't matter. And it because both anger from Allah subhanho wa Taala and mercy are evidences of God.

00:51:38--> 00:51:41

And whatever proceeds from God is good in his eyes.

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

And he does mean for the Sufi he shouldn't care whether he goes to agenda or not, or not. And to me it's insane because both of them this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed.

00:51:53--> 00:51:59

So we send to the Hellfire it should say fine, this is good. I'm happy this what Allah subhanaw taala decreed. So I'll go to the hellfire.

00:52:01--> 00:52:06

Well, one of the Darwish fell into the Tigris River and the the story is well known.

00:52:07--> 00:52:08

And he could not swim.

00:52:09--> 00:52:11

This is again from customer view.

00:52:12--> 00:52:16

He could not swim so a man Yanni on the side of the river, he yelled to me said,

00:52:18--> 00:52:22

shall I shall I try to get someone to bring you out of the out of the water?

00:52:23--> 00:52:25

And then we should know.

00:52:26--> 00:52:34

So he said, Jerry, do you want to drown the ocean? No. He said, so then what do you want? He said, I want whatever God wishes.

00:52:36--> 00:52:46

Either this is a consequence of a law and we know that from the Quran, for example, and it's something completely different from this, we looked at the Quran and Hadith and

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

we see that there are three important characteristics or three aspects of silver.

00:52:53--> 00:52:55

One is silver

00:52:56--> 00:53:41

I haven't for example, talks about finance, which you'll not find anywhere in the

00:53:41--> 00:53:49

Quran and Hadith and bonuses and all these other kinds of any the point the point of this whole lecture.

If I can sum it up Yanni in a few words, that Danny bidder or innovation is something and in very dangerous is not a life issue. The citizens Malala which means Danny, we are following the way other than the word of Allah subhana wa tada was Secondly, it is the only way of Cynthia is the way of the problem having a system or in other words, the way of the Quran and the Sunnah of the system. And if we follow any other way of Christianity other than that way anywhere following we have data, and we might think any that we're committing or making self purification, when in fact all of our deeds in this manner will not be

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

Gala.

00:54:36--> 00:54:55

Lala will be Hellfire, while we really want to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala if we really want to make sense here, if we really want to become close to Allah subhanho wa Taala and be devoted servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala. What we need to do is understand the Quran and the Sunnah and to implement those in our life.
