What they have said about
some of these things
and I'm going to use as my references for their positions.
I'm going to use two books which are considered
But I was I was trying to concentrate on using two books.
Because these two books are considered
from the non extremes.
You know, so, so we're gonna be frank,
especially in America here. I mean, you can't just say all cookies believe in this.
I mean, like Christians, you can't say all Christians believe in this because every Christian has his own belief, every Sufi has his own, as you said, he said, Every path oma, every soul has his own path. Actually, every Sufi, every Sufi soul has his own beliefs,
probably more focus, but among the Sufi, you can,
you can divide them any basically into some that are more extreme than others. And it is some that come out, for example, openly and say, for example, kind of hot, and some that would not go to that extreme, and at least not expect
john taking from books which are known to be moderate.
And unfortunately, one of his books is up for sale right here in Toronto. When I left the conference for a few moments,
Mark didn't know that I left the conference.
What are these books for sale right here in Toronto. And this is why I live in my mind.
I don't like to quote them, because it's difficult to pronounce his name. But
this book is one of the one of the best known books is a Sufi. It's called test your test. As as Ali was mentioning, this is a, you know, the unveiling that they talked about, where they see the reality and so forth. And this book is available in English.
And as I said, is not is not considered an extreme survey is considered moderate to be. And many times he criticizes the view of the extreme, more extreme. I mean, he clearly says that they said this and this and this is wrong.
And another book is one of the beauties on the on Sophie. And I also tried to book transition books which are available in English because sometimes if you just put Arabic and you're speaking to a non Arabic speaking
audience, it doesn't help much, you know, yes, they said that that book is in Arabic and you go there and you have to have to understand what
doesn't help is to book the other book is
by kalavati is called in English the doctrine of
the first one, which doesn't have to be kept the name
because you cannot translate.
you could see it who doesn't have that level of understanding that is done veiling of the unveil of the veil me, but I only have so much to learn.
The one thing about the modern stupid is when they talk about certain topics,
they usually begin in the discussion with quotes in the Quran.
And these different topics, for example, that we're gonna discuss, they begin with quotes from the Quran, Hadith, but then they go on from there. And the same thing is when they go on Sunday, they don't seem to mind that what they say after that contradicts what they quoted from
the Quran heavy. Now, the Sufi they call these different levels, or these are stages
every student of Sufism passes from one stage to another.
And some of the stages that we're going to talk about, are for example, repentance, and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala, and patients instead of factions.
And maybe we'll talk about SNS.
An important thing to note about these stages.
As I said, before, the soup is you move from one stage to another. In other words, you move from repentance, you move from there to love.
And it should be immediately everyone should realize and recognize that this isn't true. And even the starting point as long
as it is a temporary fix that a believer should have at all time.
And he doesn't have trust in Allah at a certain stage and then he moves on something.
But again, it's
sad that it is not permissible.
And also, of course, you can't move on to another stage before it's time.
My whole thing but anyway,
that in other words, you can't have trust in a lot until you've gone through the other stages. So he wrote that it is not permissible that any person should quit his patient without fulfilling the obligation zero.
That's the first station is repentance.
Then we have creation, I mean to me, repentance, Cobra, then comes convergent,
then trusting God,
and so on. It is not permissible that anyone should pretend to conversion without repentance, or to renunciation without conversion, or to certain Gods without renunciation.
And then what is even more important is that this same
even talks about a time when someone can get beyond all of the
graduate, modern day languages.
He says that
anyone when someone can get to a someone people to get to the level the same earlier, Sally was referring to have become free from the pains of modification. And as escaped from the prison of patients, and the vicissitudes of state and whose search has ended in discovery. So that they are seeing all things visible. And I've heard all things Audible, and have discovered all the secrets of the heart.
This language is I mean, you can really get into that. And it's easy to see how people can can read this kind of stuff and just get into it.
So much, but unfortunately,
who is who has been, who is hurt all how sound who has seen all things and knows all the secrets?
is a moderate, by the way, not
like rush limbaugh. He's a moderate. And he's saying that they reach that stage, where they have heard all sounds and seen all things and discovered all the secrets of the heart. I don't know who it is who's heard all things. And it was only to listen,
for the SEC to Chicago, for example.
And some, I mean, sometimes when you read some of the things that is
so, so strange, that you have to really sit down and think about what they were saying,
what would affect the silver.
One of the things that they're saying about about Toba
is that someone can get to a certain level
needed to call the elect or to harass or whatever, there is impossible that they should repent of sin
is impossible that they should repent of sin.
Because that's such a level
that they realize that the sin that they committed, of course, wasn't a thing. So if it's not a sin, why should they repent?
Why is it a sin? Well, for some, of course, this is a matter of as he talks about
this is that they did is like an act of God, there's no sin, why should you attend?
repent from an act of God?
from their point of view, that's an act of God.
Some of the another one of the early earlier, people said the meaning of repentance, and this is I just quoting this so you kind of see
what they say and understand the kind of things that they say.
Sometimes they think they say things that really makes no sense whatsoever and to them that has the greatest meaning.
The meaning of repentance is adults should repent from repentance.
If you have a question about what that means, is here to answer your question.
As I stated and repentance, we go through the phenomena we say repentance is obligatory upon everyone. It is not a stage that you go through this your repentance, and then you move on to other stage and even get to the point or you move on from that and is no longer and you've moved on from there is no longer testing is repentance. And there's nothing that you do in your life that you need to repent from.
There we go again to the examples
Of all the prophets in the Quran, you see that they're asking Allah subhana wa Taala to forgive them, they have never left the stage of repentance.
And they know that they are human beings and they cannot worship as as as great and to the best of their ability as they weren't fooling around with data. They know that they cannot work bullet manual data to the extent that Allah subhanaw taala deserves to be used.
So the false SLM always end in a day he would ask for forgiveness from Allah subhana wa tada numerous times.
Over 70 times a day you would ask Allah subhanaw taala to forgive. So it is not.
And it is not something that you are repentance and you and you are at some point repentance, and you just move on from that from that state. In fact, if the janitor Why will Allah subhanho wa Taala tells the prophets I send them that can win the victory when the victory comes to him and the people entering the religion. This is when Allah subhanho wa Taala pulled the father said tell him and he to to praise Allah subhana wa tada and ask for forgiveness of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And it is many things that we could say about
I think Gallagher is better positioned, I don't want to
talk too much about some of these aspects just to cover them briefly and quickly.
Another aspect is with respect to having trust in Allah subhana wa Tada.
And relying upon Allah subhana wa has
me in this
in this case, once again,
their understanding of this concept is completely different from the understanding that we can drive around.
And I'll just mention one aspect of it.
And that is the aspect of using the causes of this world war two the causes to achieve some goal
for the for the Sufi,
for his model to peace that I talked about, and using the causes of this world
shows a shortcoming in your face demonstrates a shortcoming in your face.
Because this means that you're not completely putting your trust
in Allah Subhana with that.
And if for example, if you if he wants to earn your living,
and he wants to provide food for your family to go out and work and do what you can do, to get the money to earn
and earn money to supply food for your family.
According to the most knowledgeable the topic and energy like you are showing that you don't put your trust in Allah.
Just sit and wait and it will come to you.
And they even refer to those of them who do that as easily gratefully, Allah subhana wa Tada, they fit in right and they live off the charity
and off the money of others. And they're saying these are the ones who really could not live without.
And if you look at the example again of the poem, how Mr. Selim
how, for example, when he went to war,
and he did, when the when the when the kuffar when the disbelievers were coming to attack Medina,
he didn't sit in again and say, Oh, don't make any first preparations for
don't take the ditch there was suggested because that's the sign that you all don't trust and all this man with that.
But we see from the example of
the gift we trust in Allah subhana wa tada and we put our reliance upon all of our data. And we know that we won't be able to do anything unless the listener without allows us and we'll be done.
But at the same time, we follow the steps and that all the time without as shown us that may lead to that goal.
Such as defeating and in the coupon is defeating the the non Muslims in a battle. Allah subhanho wa Taala has shown us as part of that is to prepare yourself for battle.
And when the public has sent him in his example, when he went out to fight, he took along his coat of arms and so forth, so that he could defend himself in the best.
So we follow the means the causes, but we do not rely on the causes because we know that the causes by themself or not.
And I had forgotten this one brother had just lost a lot of money in the business getting and he asked me some question related to a car that was covered and I forgot about that completely that aspect. And I told him for example, a businessman could do everything every step proper and necessary according to Economics and Business Administration.
To make a profit, and he could end up losing all his money.
I forgot I just would have said thank you very much.
Like completely executive to him and I'd forgotten that there was a situation. But according to
an according to the Sufi, as I said, this is something that shows a shortcoming in our faith.
And again, as Alec pointed out,
they have this concept that everything happens, of course, by the will of Allah subhana wa Tada.
That means everything must be accepted.
And there's no reason to speak about anything that happens in this world. In other words, there's no such thing as the concept of ordering goods and eradicating it.
Because according to them,
everything that happens is by the will of Allah subhana wa Tada. This means Allah must be pleased with it, and therefore it is good.
And Allah must be pleased with it. So why are you going to try to start something that almost handwash Allah.
And this is the this they fail to distinguish between two sets of errata, or two sets of data. One is that with respect to what he asks us to do, and tells us that this is good, do it and this is evil, stay away from it. And the other are those things that he allows to happen in this world. If someone wants to commit evil, Allah subhanho wa Taala has given him that joy,
and give him that ability to do evil and he allows him to do it. But this doesn't mean that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with it.
And he allows him to do it and you punish him in the alpha and this is a sign that he's not pleased.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala may allow something to happen in this world. But that is not just a vacation or argument for saying that Allah subhana wa tada has to do that. Because in the Hereafter, Allah subhanho wa Taala may punish that actually showing that he's not. He will allow it to happen due to some wisdom, there's some wisdom behind it occurred. But that doesn't mean that Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with that
particular action. We know that all of a sudden without us please with an action, but through the revelation through the Quran through the statement of promises. So if he is displeased, if he
can, if he says that he is displayed that something is forbidden, or that he is angered about some action, we know that this is something the student told us.
So one time
a man came in to his house and he found that his slave was committing
fornication with his wife.
And just this man was filthy.
And I don't know if he can still apply this to some of them today, how consistent they are in their principles. So when they're when the man tries to stop it, from what he was doing.
The slave said, this is decreed by Allah subhanaw taala. And you don't you? Aren't you pleased with what Allah has decreed. So he stopped, he cannot
continue. And this is also
related to their concept of patience, and
patience and satisfaction with what Allah subhanho wa Taala
has, has, has decreed. And I want to mention, I just want to read a passage again, from the module.
And I think they'll stop with this
simulation. I'm sure you must have some questions for others. So
I'll just read this passage as an example
of a non extreme Sufi in which he's in. And by the way, this book is very popular among tourists and highly recommended, quoted by many of them.
This is a concept of patience and satisfaction, and it's also related to the concept of
reading capital, Nairobi said it is all one to a man and in other words, doesn't matter to a man whether he is consumed in the fire of wrath,
or illuminated by the light.
Because both wrath and mercy are evidences evidences of God, and whatever proceeds from God is good in his eyes.
And in other words,
doesn't matter to him. And whether he is punished in the Hellfire or
put into paradise because according to them, any whatever Allah subhana wa Tada, does, this is what they want.
There's a story of skip some of this some of this is
not meant for human consumption.
There's a story of the dervish of one of their who fell into the Tigris River
and he could not swim so on
Then on the bank of the river yells out to him.
And he shall I tell someone to bring you a short show, I get coming to see. And the rich said no. So, the man says, you want to you want to drown? The man said no. So, he said, What do you want? The man said that which God wishes, what have I to do with wishes
and in other words,
now, he has no right or no will of his own, he they cannot even say, this is wrong, this is right, I should do this, I should do that. No. And he wants to be he wants to draw and he wants to be saved, and only the one with this is any force of the concept of trust. And Allah subhanaw taala and patience and, and satisfaction. And with respect to
any comes from the promise. We know that whatever Allah subhana wa, tada, does, whatever, listening to what God has decreed, we know that there's wisdom behind.
And we accept that wisdom. And we know that there's wisdom behind it, but at the same time, we know that there's some response that is supposed to come from us, with respect to what was going on with that as decrease. In other words, if Allah Subhana, WA Tada, and he tries us by removing everything with the rest of this world, we know that Allah Subhana, WA, tada has done that, due to some wisdom, we are not any upset with Allah subhanho wa Taala, by what she's done. But we know at the same time, that now that some response that should come from our part, we should have patience, we should know that Allah, Allah has done that,
for wisdom, and our response to that may lead to the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. And similarly, when we see wrong in front of us, it doesn't mean that we just accept that long. But we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala, has allowed human beings to do wrong, and at the same time I listen, I know what data has ordered us to use, whatever means we can to stop them.
So these are some of the concepts that that they have, as I said, this book, you can even buy it here in
It is one of the well known books, and as I say, it is considered to be one of the non extreme writers. And I want to emphasize that because sometimes when people write, they take all these extreme examples. And they can be criticized for taking the extreme view of Sufism, and you're just quoting from the extreme side. But even if you go to the moderate side, who will find me enough to criticize I mean, if you, I mean, you'll find at least enough to know that this is a path, it is not the path leading to Allah subhanho wa Taala. It is not a path to test. Yes, it is, in fact, the fastest you should remain away from.
So I think there's as informed as 30 seconds left
this session, and I don't know how to answer any questions. So I think I'll just use these last
30 seconds to summarize,
a few points.
gathered here for the last three, four days, asking what kind of data to accept are these as we would a portfolio. And the theme of this conference was, as you all know, steadfastness upon the face of the law, and the law of religion, as well.
This religion would only allow a stretch of the Serpents of his creature, and that if anyone takes or chooses a path unto him, other than this path, he will be at your after his destiny, which is an act of destruction, because it is a path for which we are created, and the path for which we are sent all the profits.
From Noah, Abraham, to Moses to Jesus, instead of Mary, to the Prophet Muhammad, Allah, why don't you send them the final prophet and messenger
and the beginning, or the summary of this task, the essence of it as is not worth the problem, how the platform
is compared to when you ask for advice, say I believe in a law and then be applied.
So the start is to first learn one, so he learned belief in a lot
to understand the difference between the creator and the Creator. And that the Creator has the right of worship and obedience.
And that the creator said, we are to submit to our Lord and then to be upright, and one cannot be upright. And one cannot be that more life. Unless he follows that instruction, which a lot of times Tyler said to the Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and that is in essence, the statement of our faith and the meaning of our religion, law.
I asked a lot of how to add up to give us like,
those two statements as opposed to so those two statements
As the water cooler for them on the day of Benjamin Kuta photocatalysis a lot of you would have come to panic a lot will be having effects. So don't marry that had to suffer for today. And my apologies that the session has come to an end and there's not any time for your questions which I know are important and if we have some time to answer them after the show like
maybe the next
one a little harder to read they
or may have
not headline number?
From Allahu Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, or bad.
The idea behind this session is to discuss a cupola or Sufism as his practice and understood today
is it a viable alternative or is it a viable means to be set back in one place. And that is because often when a person wants to become religious, wants to become closest to a law wants to live a life of being upright,
it comes to their mind. And as you will see that this idea comes from the equation that
they should adopt one of these Sufi orders. In other words, they should become a beginning or an end or a property or die or something to that,
or something like that. Right. And so that therefore, if they become Sufi, they will
become closer to Allah. And they believe that a suffer loss is really an expression of one aspect of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam message, it comes from that being of that aspect of his message is drawing close to Allah, and to find one soul. So what I'd like to do with the time allotted today is discuss, first of all, briefly, that aspects of the Prophet message go a long way regarding purifying the soul, and then set out a broad outline. Concerning the difference between Islam and Judaism as practice today,
we should first understand
that texture is one of those tasks, for which a loss of Hello sada thanks to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, indeed, will find that texture is the aim. And it is the fruit of the revelation of a law, a lot of time of products and forms of art of that great flavor.
They have confirmed upon us by sending to us the Prophet Mohammed, a lot of times the elements is twice in the Koran verses have the same meaning. One of which is who will have the back of an image, you know what I mean? And putting him next to him is easy when you receive him when you are traveling,
oftentimes out of status and the second verse of sources now, that is he in Allah, who has sent among the illiterate in India, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even though he's the Prophet, to all of mankind, he was also sent specifically to the Arabs, who had not a profit center that before in order to turn the back to the religion of their father, Ibrahim alayhi salam. So here are the kind of data says that it is he who has sent among the illiterate meanings the as a messenger from among themselves, he that he was a prophet, who was from one of their drives, the Prophet sallallahu is some of being from the best of the tribe Christ, and from the best of the
households of the battle Hashem. And then the last the kind of data describes three facts of this messenger. Yes, Lu ra him is that he recites unto them his verses. In other words, he informs them that allows to kind of add up, add that to you such and such.
When you get to him, and he purifies them, and this is what we'll be discussing first, when you're traveling, and he teaches them, he instructs them in the scripture that in the Koran, and the wisdom the Atma, which has a chapter you and others of the scholars of Islam have mentioned, is the Sunnah of the Prophet, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So here Allah Subhana Allah tells us that among the top of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam is attached here to find the souls of those who follow him. And he
has taken an oath in the Koran and as I mentioned in the discussion
sourcing so that whenever a loss of analysts adaptation Oh, we take this upon a great thing. A lot of data says this sort of system, which we'll see we'll have will probably be that said, aha, when he had his agenda, when maybe his idea
was that you will not have an aha, well, I'll be on Apple, ha ha. When it came when I arrived for Alabama, halfway, Georgia, Howard has
a lot of time with data after taking 11% of all he says, and by the soul, and he was great at it, and has instilled in it for Judah, its sense of wickedness, with a sense of being, having piety and to Allah.
And then a lot to kind of out of that reality which he cares about
Becca, he has exceeded, who has purified his soul, what has hava he has lost, who has jerky, his soul molded wicked, and Sophie is the great meaning to which lots of hundreds of Allah has created us for to purify our soul. And this is why when the people interpret paradise, as allow us to kind of assata has mentioned in sort of exuma
that when they enter into paradise, the angels will say to them,
you have become your you will become famous, or you have done that which has made you pure, so enter into paradise, about the kind of data tells you that the angels will greet the believer at the gates of Paradise and say that you have become pure.
And he who does not fall in this earth
while he's alive, the fire has to clean out the impurities of the soul
lies if he's a believer, but if he dies, he gets believe or no matter how long he burns it how fire, he will never become pure. And that is why they have an eternal punishment of the hellfire. And for this reason, you might understand like as an example, like a dog, if a dog was to enter into an ocean, you know, go into a river or swim or go into a lake or something like that. And the dog came out of it with a dog than the computer, or would it still be a nugget, and likewise a disbeliever when he entered into the Hellfire that will not purify him. And therefore that is why he's against the Hellfire forever. But the believer who died, even if it's fake, as mentioned by the prophet,
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi Salaam is as little as a mustard seed, eventually the fire will purify them, so that you will be able to insert your heart. And so that's why people will stay in the house I have a lot protect us coming from the believers will stay in there according to the nature of their sin, according to how much it takes them to purify themselves and those impurities, which they did not thrive to clean the soul from rather we're on this earth.
So the point is, is that a lot of kind of data created for this past year was a pure part of the soul. And when the soul is pure, when the soul has become clean, in fact, this is one of the assets and so the art becomes open, open to extract the teachings of a more open to obey a loss of handling data. But when the soul is impure, when the soul has been dirtied because of shift and since it becomes tight.
And that is why the elastic panels out in the Koran says as for he who a lot the kind of guy that has opened his breasts for Islam, and a lot of kind of God has described the disbelievers as the breath. They're just being punished as if they are ascending in the heavens above the sky above.
So, the point is, is that a loss of habitat for dyspepsia? So, the natural question then comes if we understand this, how does one become fewer? Is the purpose of our creation is this is one of the reasons why I lost a ton of data has sent the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is this is the cost of Paradise and how do we apply ourselves?
We will find that if you look at the teachings of Islam, there is no specific act of worship, there is no specific belief, there is no specific action or deed that leads to Cassia but that is in its entirety is texia
and that is why tohei is texia and that is why a lot to kind of add up. The first we must be close to those who do not accept a lecture as legit as
referred to as self because their bodies are dirty.
Because as we know, there are many non Muslim people share mesh themselves. So it's not a physical answer to them from their body. But it's an impurity.
And impurity caused because of shirts. And that this is why Allah subhana wa tada describes the act of
homosexuality as a group.
And that is why he tells us in the Quran, that when the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, the people have moved on, he wants to throw out,
move around and his followers, they said that they are a people who purify themselves,
showing that they
considered that this act of purifying themselves and leading a moral life in their minds, because their fifth law had completely been overturned. But it was is something which is to get them to kick them out of their village or their city. You know that, for instance, like those people who have dogs, look at those people, for instance, you do when the dog becomes smelly, because it's late or something like that, you kick it out of the house.
Right? They take that out of the house.
But these people wanted to throw out, whoops, I didn't fit up and the people because they were people who tried to purify themselves. You see how the Sephora was overturned. And likewise, we find that a lot of kind of data tells us that
we supply a lot to kind of either the first commandment for it. He says, Why you had nap or buddhadeb taco taco.
Wherever the rubber comes.
personality, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you was that perhaps you might have
in other words, perhaps you might make a barrier between yourself and that will lead into the hellfire. So in other words, you do have that purity and a lot of analysts data describing the fat which is an actual
act of worship. A lot of hype out of dead guy Oh, Hallelujah. Amen. Oh, Cookie violation was
a little comical.
Oh, you who believe that it has been prescribed for you. As it has to go before you got perhaps you might have this quality of supply.
And a lot of data has dead completely off the clock. Which means that when somebody murdered somebody, you killed the murderer, the rest of the family except a breadwinner for him or forgive them a lot. The kind of data says whatever it is, when you have bad luck.
If you have a facade like omen of understanding that perhaps you might have
indeed a lot the kind of sad as described the full path which is described as a path that leads to taqwa when the hatha hiraki was stepping in and said, well, as it said, are similar. commands add garlic, Masako de la la, whoa, whoa, I was the kind of data says, and this is my trade path. So follow it, follow it, and follow not the other path that will separate you from this path. This is what you have commanded us that perhaps you might not.
So we see that there is not a specific set of actions. There's not a specific set of beliefs, which needs to
protect you. But rather the entire plan in its entirety is one. Whether it deals with belief, I believe, whether it deals with acts of worship, whether it deals with acts, or what they call it model after transactions reviews, and so far, or whether it deals with Aflac
because he finds the top five but I'm sad in a brace to tell him
that I have been said
in order to compete for order to fulfill good behavior, good moral character.
So here, the powerful law firm has summarized his message in its entirety as one of coming to fill the good characters good behavior, the good conduct.
So this is why we say the first one you should understand that the cloud there's nothing specific in it. The least to test you that the whole of your time is to test and this is why when I shouldn't be long winded
I was asked concerning what was the character of the Prophet from La Jolla Salah? What did you say
that he passed on. In other words upon in its entirety was his character. So because he is the model of caspia as he will pay for the Quran itself is the program or the letterhead of Petya.
And likewise, we should know that there is no greater example in hestia purification, then, that of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
as he had said, in the idea of a sizeable hottie that barely the most feeling of you with a lot, and the most knowledgeable who is amongst you, is it.
So the problematic
it informs that of mankind, he's the most serious of the creation. And also he knows a lot of that. So there is no one who knows knowledge of what a law or how a law is, or what pleases a law or what leads to a lot
about paradise, that is the fundamental facts by them, and not implement that way
better than Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
After that, we should know that his companions, those who he taught, and those who he purified by his own teachings, or the other model for us in hestia. And that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said he hated that part of me from intervening.
In the Hadith, reported by Amanda Crusaders for hidden Buhari and elsewhere, the southern hemisphere is solid enough that the best of mankind, the best of humanity was his generation. Then those who came after them, then those who came after them.
And then cadet, those people came after that, for that discipline. He told us in another video related to the Day of Judgment, and that's why he said that battle fight if an ad in
the wall section of this community upon the truth deploy,
so that even though he's played the first regeneration and condemn those who came afterwards, he also said that there are those who come afterwards will always mean when people just almost on the truth and they are that foods that adhere to his way in Turkey and other than that,
now that we have understood in a brief introduction to the idea of Petya
it behooves us
to understand or have a broad outline the difference between
the prophets model of Petya and
comm is the closer
the The major difference between Islam
and Sufism is that Islam is a religion of that belief, that act of worship and that act of behavior and
design in the matter of belief is based upon the Quran and the Sunnah.
And in matters of action matters, the Sharia is based upon the Quran, it's and then the draft and most scholars except preact analogy, when one finds a similar matter not mentioned in the text to the other. So now they share a same clause and a reason one can take the rules of what is mentioned a consonant and apply it to that matter. While proof ism, whether in matters of belief, or in matters of conduct, worship is at with no boundaries, no barriers.
And therefore it is based upon different sources completely different than that.
It is based either upon their claim that they see is the preserved tablet that they know the future. They're supposed to GP with a fiddle. They're supposed meetings with the dead. They're supposed to meetings with whom they say they call the spirits which are another in the gym. They're mean
they're what they call unveiling or opening that comes to them which are nothing other than that Titanic inspiration.
And so therefore they have no set boundaries to religion.
Likewise, when it comes to their acts of conduct, each party across
the border has its own
Way of worshipping Allah. And they say that the paths leading us to Allah number the tools that allow.
In other words, every soul has its own way of making.
So therefore, you will find that each character has a specific type of word is saying that phrases and so forth. And it might have a specific type of clothing,
or a specific type of food, or a specific set of spiritual exercises that they can command their followers to act upon.
So when it comes, for instance, a belief in a law, we know that Islam teaches us that a law is one and then he takes him from his creation, that there is a creator. And then there is the creator. and advocate for is not like his creation, and he needs to commit to history, or who was the near and dear, there is none like unto him. And he is all feelings, all themes whenever you want, and there is not equal to him.
No one deserves to his name or when was equal to him, fella his daddy and daddy
do not make for Allah equals and you know that there is
these are verses which you find in the Quran, which makes this reality clear. But the Sufi, say something different. The Sufi, say, that allows the pedal Tada, some of them do has indwelled into ch a saloon. And so therefore, you find one of their
leader and Alas, said, and then
he has a wall. And one of them will use either abbreviated as Cami, is to say some hands have had more to be voiced recently.
And likewise, some of them believe and in. And it's not that when they purify themselves to such a degree, they eventually unify and become one with Allah.
While the majority of them today, after the
appearance of a man called even hottie, a sushi fellow from Spain, who appeared in the 600 series about 200 odd years ago. They believe in a concept known as restricted, would you In other words, that the whole creation is just a lot.
And that is why would one of the people who had this ID, I
believe, and his name was they call him asking for too much planning for 2007 and fabulous understanding, but look at
when he said, when they said to him, what you are teaching the ship,
so that he was starting to respond because you're on a ship.
I only did archery season, because they feel
that everything is online. And shares is to say that there are other than a lot. And for this reason,
when they said to him also, it not a lot to kind of add up for date having sex with one's mother, or one sister, or daughter.
And so what is the difference? Well, if you say that everything, we also say that everything is hot, it's only haram for you. And
because he has realized that everything is a monster, therefore there's no difference.
So this is a belief for 31. This is a belief of all the Sufi orders today, I challenge any sushi, who brings you the book of his chef,
to show me that a chef today on the earth doesn't believe in breakfast, whether there's enough spendy The problem was
not on the photography, or whether they care but the photo is happening in DC, or wherever, wherever they might be in North America elsewhere. They all believe in this concept of witnesses, that everything is a manifestation of a wall. And what they say is that the reason if we feel that when things if you now get that this pen is different than this wall, which is given in this paper, then which is different than this cup of water, because there's something wrong in your perception. But then once you reach a certain spiritual state, and you release yourself, as your mind is set, from your perception, you will realize that this is all one and that everything is alone.
As far as the beliefs that they have, concerning the Prophet Mohammed from whoever it was Sunday. We believe that the present and summarize some of the things that he was born, he died from a novel it was suddenly he became ill.
He had a motion of happiness, sadness.
He has weighed in with good habit in the eye gaze with hardship occurs to him.
And he does a lot to kind of add effects to him to stay
in the era.
You have no idea. And when I
say autism, I am a man like you
who didn't like you. The difference is that it is revealed to me that you're at his word.
So therefore, because it was taught, in his words are commanded, first and foremost, that he is a man like us. But the difference is that he receives revelation, or we do not.
Now do the Sufis believe that considered upon what
they believe is a problem henselae salaam is a manifestation of a law, most of them believe that. And they believe that he was taken from a lot of life. And this is why the Sophie's will find a say, they think of itself based upon the Prophet Mohammed, the wife, Allah, that
he said that Allah said to him, where it's not for you, I would have not created the universe.
But we know from the Quran that a lot of times to Allah created us
Allah subhanaw taala.
And they're saying that I was created,
and everything because of Mohammed.
And this is why they say that the problem is the embodiment of the life of a law or the life of a large throne. Just like the Christian said, that the Word became flesh, that a lot of these attribute proceeds became a human being, and it's in America, today ascribed to vindicate Theresa, May, people who claim to follow this, or must say that a lot of life is actually
similar to the life of the heavens, the earth became flesh, and it became a homicide for them.
And for this reason, they say, that monophonic fella, his shadow is
completely right, and so that he has no shadow for that reason.
In fact, there's a book you can buy in North America called the shadow was profit, obviously, Chicago.
And some other Sufi claimed that they reach knowledge, and they reach levels of understanding which are better than the Prophet. And for this reason, they said
could never walk us through MDR is that
we have traveled a sea, we have crossed a sea of knowledge and social understanding. But the prophet doc added Sure.
And for this reason, as he said, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam took inspiration from God. But we take it from the store
And he meant by this the act of interest, an apple aside, which is a philosophical concept.
And likewise, for this reason, the Sufi condemn, especially the people with fitna who report ideation relate it they say, you say, so and so told you that you heard from so and so we heard from so and so we heard from someone over from the province like they should have narration. So you realize,
you realize something which is from a dead man from a dead man from a dead man from a dead man. But as for us, we say, Our Lord tells us directly in our heart, the one who does not die.
And concerning the righteous, and Oh, yeah. And then wilaya process to a law and rely on him to be close to Allah. It is a belief of the people of the sinner that every believer is close to a law degree at the state. And that is why a lot the kind of guy that does
a lot of that, hopefully not at noon, and Medina and Alou was
also kind of fat dead. That's what a lot of those close ones Oh, yeah. There is no fear for them in the year after, meaning that they will have no fear that they will go through the Hellfire a lot will give them that fighting when they die. And also on the Day of Judgment, they'll go to Paradise.
They will not
become sad. Otherwise they will not be saved by what they left behind them. Let me describe them and the VENA Amman ghosts who have faith will carry extra food and had useless taqwa. So facing taqwa is shown by every single Muslim because the life aspects of a Muslim, even if you had a just a
mustard seed of faith in his heart, he had enough faith in his heart that made him see a shift.
So people all people have faith and have Taqwa. And so therefore, all Muslims, I mean, I think that all Muslims have a couple of different all Muslims have a portion of closest to Allah
their level of their faces or level of support.
And we believe that the rightness of the loss of data, that it is from the belief that has some drive that he gives them, sometimes miracle.
But the vehicles are not something which they turn on and off like a light switch. But it's something that allows to kind of try to allow us to pass 100 hands, in order for many wisdoms, whatever it is to show that because they follow the Prophet Mohammed Boss, I love that, because I tell him, it's true. So therefore, his hurt will continue until today.
And likewise, as also in order to get the victory or to get from victory.
And so therefore, these things do not occur due to their own accord. And you happen to have to go through from asking what happens with your judgment. And what is the significance of the earlier they consider that the earlier and they have different degrees for them, the one who's at the top of the pyramid is
the one who they seek aid from, and they identify the seasons of the dilemma.
And they say that when I lost the kind of attitude to creation, he left the clavicle causing them to answer
the prayers of the creature.
And then after the rope that has a four o'clock, the four pillars, each one doesn't have in the corner of the four corners of the earth.
And then afterwards, they have the 7705, which has each of them are the seven regions of the earth.
And then after them, you have the force of God, which are in Korea. And then afterwards you have a new Java is realized a city has a
say. And they believe that all of them gather in the cave of Hara, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam received revelation every night, they discuss what's going to go on with the creation, and they decide to do what they want to do.
And for this reason, the Sufi to not believe in seeking paradise and Hellfire I stay with the hellfire.
They believe that to seek paradise, and to seek to be protected from the Hellfire is something which belongs to the slave, but they are the heart, they are the free.
And so therefore they seek to become again, went to a law firm, they seek to create and to give license to give just what they imagined.
And so therefore, it's not surprising, we find one of them say, I have out of respect for a law. For the last I don't know what he said 20 years 50 years, did not say couldn't say.
In other words, he gave up breaking things for 25 or 60 years, whatever he said, in order out of respect to a loss that was he wants to do.
So this is what they seek to be.
Now when we come to their understanding of shediac, their understanding of worship and conduct, they also have a completely different understanding the concept of collateral as we show, they do not believe in people, because they believe everything is one with a lot. There's no allowance. It's only something in your mind.
When it comes to the issue of changing evil, they don't believe in changing evil, because they believe Allah has compelled the creation, to do what they have to do, and that we are only after we've been given a script. We are like a feather in the wind. And so therefore there's no reason to change in morato
45 to change improper behavior, because a lot of times Allah has discourages people take the role of the evil person. And then some people take the roles of the good people. And they sometimes some of them will say that it's better to be the role of the evil person that has to be the good person. Just like you know that at some of the younger people who are in high school, sometimes you have to do a school play. And not everybody wants to do the village school play the same sort of thing. They say that if Allah has chosen for you, the role of Satan, that's better
than the Word of God. Therefore, we find that they do not have any program for commanding good and evil.
As far as the way
it is the pace of the people the fitness people is rather they follow the Prophet Mohammed for life, but inwardly inwardly or outwardly.
So therefore there is no belief except the belief of the Prophet
for no statements except for his statements. I mean, valid statements are no valid action deeds except for his, there is no reality happier at that point is there is no politics except for his, the following inwardly and outwardly. But for them, they follow their shift. And that is why they described themselves as not standing at graduating, as exciting as the journey whatever.
There's so many of these goofy orders, and this is probably the most dangerous aspect of them.
Because when a lead enters into a suffer when
first give him something which seems benign,
and then they take it step by step closing the doors leading out of that order, and Kool Aid completely brainwashed him, and he's become a trap. And that is why they say to them, that the first lesson you must learn is that you as a Marine, as a sushi seeker must be with your shave, as the mayor is with the rescue, as the dead body is with the one who washes, you might imagine the court when it's picked on that flat, to be washed. Does the court say to those people who walk it, don't, you know, cut too hard here, don't just just area this part. Now. It doesn't have any idea of what's going on. They say in the same sense, it just follows wherever the chef's guide anything, you have
to use your chef in the same manner.
So this is the most dangerous thing. And this is why the amount of traffic and others have said that a person doesn't join them in the morning, except by afternoon glorified, he has lost his mind.
So that a person hasn't been stayed with him for 40 days except for that. He has also lost his mind his personality. I hope that was a useful introduction to our test. Yes. So the remaining 35 minutes. Let's
continue. And as there are any questions that you might have
the topics of
further ideas has been covering,
and which I'll cover for a few minutes. So you can ask me any questions you may have.
It is actually a very, it's a very vast topic.
Obviously, there's many areas that we will not be able to cover
in the time that we have a lot of threats
such as the history of Sufism and how it came into being and so forth. And I know he has an answer ready for that. So if you want to ask him, you may ask them about the history of Sufism.
It will take up the rest of our time, actually, but that's
So what what I would like to talk about just picking up a little bit on some of the aspects that Alli has mentioned,
I would like to talk about some of the ways that the to be described just yet. And how a person is supposed to move from one state to another and what are these different states that they talk about?
First of all, before getting to that I would like I would like to remind all of us and as brother Ali has pointed out, this real way of Cynthia the real way of purifying oneself, and getting closer to Allah subhana wa tada and becoming one of
the Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala, whom Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with and who will enter gender and is the best way as we talked about, we talked about illustrates that that is one way and it is not there's not many ways there's not as many as the number of souls in the world and so forth. But that in fact is one way
and Allah subhanaw taala and heavy squats he has described
the most important step in achieving that goal
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala stated
that a slave and a human does not get closer to Allah subhana wa tada by any other means other than any the act that almost in hand with Allah has made obligatory
and is the first step and the closest way that we can get so let's head on with Allah and the most important step is to are to do those acts which are looking at data how obligate obligated upon us.
And those are clear from the Quran so on
And anytime you come across someone who claims that he's going to take you to the will of Allah subhana wa tada and take you to the path of Alyssa Hana with data and he does not start with
These things that Allah subhanho wa Taala has clearly taken upon our biggest worry upon us. We know right away that there's something wrong with that person.
And if he tells you that the first step is to make certain kind of Vicar, or the first step
is for example to
become with respect you shaped like the dead person in the hands of the one who watches and so forth. And he's reflecting those things that are clearly obligatory in the Koran, then you know, right away, that this path that he is asking you to follow, is not the correct path. And then secondly, and he after you fulfill those obligatory duties and you do the biggest jury duty at that time, which is the thing that can take you closer to Allah subhanaw taala.
Then you do the voluntary duties and you continue to do the voluntary duties as Allah subhanho wa Taala says as the slave continues to do, the voluntary acts I mean, until Allah subhanho wa Taala
and then when Allah subhana wa tada loves him, he becomes a seeing bosi season's over. So this Hadith of the Prophet SAW Selim, this hadith poetry, and it is a very important and he just wants to sell back to the if you understand the ways of the Philippines, this one had it knocked out almost everything they believe in.
And it shows me what they have from the beginning to the end is not and is not consistent with the Quran as in whatsoever. However,
I would like to discuss some some specific aspects about their path and what are some of the things that they call the stages or mahkamah that
people have to follow to get closer to Allah subhanaw taala
keeping in mind once again,
that as the headings will progress that the publisher silom has told us that anything that takes us closer to Allah subhanaw taala the prophet SAW Selim has guided us through
anything that takes us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala the province of serum has gone into the the the deen is complete, the guidance is complete, and there's no need for us to go anywhere else to see how to get to Allah subhanho data.
If there's any way to get closer to Allah subhana wa Tada, the province that tell him the Quran and the Sunnah, has shown it to us or has given us the evidence that that's the way to go. And anything that takes us further away from the Hellfire, the focus of cinema has shown us how to get further away from from the hellfire. So, all of the aspects of 50 or self purification.
As brought it mentioned, all of these aspects are found in the Quran and assuming
the problem is sometimes some people's desires as we talked about, in one of the one of these earlier lectures
as we as we mentioned in one of those lectures of this is the way the path will look and how it's out of the clear path of Allah subhana wa Tada. It does not meet what some people desire. It does not meet
