00:01:17--> 00:01:19

hobbema another

00:01:20--> 00:01:22

My dear brothers and sisters,

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:01:27--> 00:01:31

created each and every single one of us for a purpose.

00:01:32--> 00:01:38

From the time of Adam it is seldom, until the last man to walk the face of the earth

00:01:39--> 00:01:49

will not fall off today Jean will insert Do I have not created the jinn known mankind except to worship me

00:01:50--> 00:01:51

except

00:01:53--> 00:01:55

to worship Allah Subhana who What?

00:01:56--> 00:02:04

And so it was for this reason that Allah subhanahu wa tada said the prophets and the messengers throughout history

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

what are called the bassinet equally in Rasulullah

00:02:10--> 00:02:13

near obudu law which tanimoto hood

00:02:15--> 00:02:21

that we sent in every nation among every civilization, a messenger

00:02:23--> 00:02:26

calling to what calling

00:02:27--> 00:02:31

the people to worship Allah subhanahu wa tada alone

00:02:32--> 00:02:34

and to reject all false gods

00:02:37--> 00:02:50

and so all the prophets and the messengers they brought this same message of singling out Allah subhanahu wa tada through a toe heed and worshiping the loss of Hannah who was alone

00:02:54--> 00:03:00

until there remained the last of Allah messengers Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:02--> 00:03:05

So prior to Allah subhanho wa Taala sending him

00:03:08--> 00:03:10

there remained nobody on Earth.

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

That was upon the true guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:19--> 00:03:21

as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said

00:03:23--> 00:03:24

mercato Allahu

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

wa boom Illa Kitab out an apostle Allahu Allah seldom

00:03:35--> 00:03:38

that prior to our sending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:42--> 00:03:43

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:44--> 00:03:56

looked at everyone on the earth, the Arabs and the non Arabs. And he looked at them with this with dislike, except remnants of a lone kita

00:03:58--> 00:03:59

and so no one remained

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

upon the deen that Allah subhanahu attallah sent, except in rare cases of individuals

00:04:08--> 00:04:15

who recognized that there is only one God and only one true, being who deserves worship.

00:04:16--> 00:04:19

And that is Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And so you had the hoonah fact

00:04:20--> 00:04:30

you had those rare individuals among the Arabs, who still worshipped lots of China who attended without worshiping the idols they were upon.

00:04:32--> 00:04:45

They were upon the Dean of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, and you had remnants of a little Kitab the Jews and the Christians. But even they had a distorted scripture that they were following.

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

And so Allah subhanho wa Taala said prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a loss of China who attended addressing annual keytab Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Yeah, Hillel. kitabi Yeah, Hillel kita

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

caja rasuna you Becky hola como Hana turati mineralia

00:05:06--> 00:05:07

kita.

00:05:09--> 00:05:18

Our messenger our messenger has come to you with clear ix after a period of time, when no messenger came,

00:05:20--> 00:05:23

and Abel prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came at a time

00:05:26--> 00:05:30

he came at a time of darkness upon the earth.

00:05:32--> 00:05:35

He came at a time when

00:05:37--> 00:05:45

there was no one worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala upon the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala willed and he wanted.

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

And so the majority of the people

00:05:51--> 00:06:07

they resorted to worshiping what they felt, would bring them benefit in this dunya and the next. And so they took objects of worship, whether it be idols, whether it be other creations of Allah, the sun, the moon, the stars,

00:06:09--> 00:06:21

they directed their Eva, to these creations of awesome Hannah who want to holla so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent in this situation.

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

And so what did he call the people to

00:06:27--> 00:06:41

the very basic message that Allah subhanho wa Taala sent with him, to preach to the people that he was sent to, was first and foremost, to recognize who Allah subhanho wa Taala was

00:06:43--> 00:06:58

to recognize that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the Lord of the Universe, of everything that is in existence. He created this universe, the heavens and the earth.

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

He maintains it, he provides for everyone.

00:07:05--> 00:07:14

He gave us everything that we have, he is the one who created us and He is the one who will take us back

00:07:15--> 00:07:28

and who will cause us to rise on the Day of Judgment. This is Allah subhanahu wa tada who has every attribute, and every perfect characteristic

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

that none of the creation happens.

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

After that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:38--> 00:07:50

preached to the people, that it is only he subhanho wa Taala, who is described as such, only he alone deserves to be worshipped.

00:07:52--> 00:08:19

And so no one else deserves the worship because everyone else and everything else is imperfect in every sense. Whereas Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only perfect divine being. Not only that, but he is the one who created us. He is the one who maintains his creation, he is the one who provides for us, so why not worship him? Why worship others besides?

00:08:21--> 00:08:24

After that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

taught the people how to worship Allah Subhana what to Allah.

00:08:31--> 00:08:35

And so it was not just, this is Allah worship Him and that's it.

00:08:36--> 00:08:53

But rather, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then explained what it means to worship Allah, how to go about worshiping Allah, what acts of worship Can we put forward to worship Allah through.

00:08:55--> 00:09:02

And so when we do that, we are worshipping Allah, based upon guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:05--> 00:09:34

And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he taught us everything that he taught us as a part of this deem as being an inhibitor of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether it be ritualistic or otherwise. And so he taught us the five pillars of Islam. Each one constitutes an act of Ayurveda, whether it be something in the heart, whether it be something that we see whether it be physical actions that we do.

00:09:36--> 00:09:39

After that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam taught us

00:09:40--> 00:09:42

the reward for those

00:09:43--> 00:09:48

who worship Allah subhanahu attallah based upon all of this,

00:09:49--> 00:09:58

that their reward with Allah subhanahu wa tada is great. And that is a turtle Jenna in the Acura.

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

The pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:10:03--> 00:10:08

and that those who refuse to worship Allah subhanahu, WA tada in this way,

00:10:09--> 00:10:26

and they decide to remain upon their ways of worshipping others besides Allah. Then the consequence of that is eternal Hellfire, eternal punishment in that era.

00:10:28--> 00:10:35

And so, there were those who accepted this basic message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:10:38--> 00:10:39

accepting Islam

00:10:41--> 00:11:08

accepting the message that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought from Allah subhana wa tada recognizing who Allah subhanho wa Taala was, and why Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves our worship, and then worshipping Allah subhana wa tada sacrificing everything for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they were the companions, the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu he was editor.

00:11:10--> 00:11:12

And there were those who refuse

00:11:14--> 00:11:18

to accept this message. And they were the moose raccoon,

00:11:19--> 00:11:28

starting with the moose, raccoon of kurush inaka and extending to all of the moose raccoon of the Arabs.

00:11:29--> 00:11:31

And so they refused

00:11:32--> 00:11:37

to submit to what the prophet sallallahu Allah he was sent them right. And so

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

instead of complying and instead of submitting,

00:11:44--> 00:11:56

even after it was clear, that what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam brought was the truth from Allah subhanahu wa Tada. He brought sign after sign evidence after evidence.

00:11:57--> 00:12:00

But they remain stubborn upon their wings.

00:12:01--> 00:12:02

And they decided,

00:12:03--> 00:12:14

they decided to find arguments and ways of justifying them following their wings.

00:12:16--> 00:12:19

And this was because they felt that they were under attack.

00:12:21--> 00:12:24

And so they went on the defensive, instead of submitting.

00:12:26--> 00:12:31

They felt that their way of life had come under attack. And so

00:12:33--> 00:12:51

it was mandatory for them to defend themselves. We have to defend our beliefs, we have to defend our idols and our gods. This is our way of life. What has Muhammad brought, he has brought something new, he has brought something strange.

00:12:53--> 00:13:19

How could he make the gods to be 111? wakita? How could he have made the gods to be one, they found this to be something strange. And so they defended their way of life. And they defended their beliefs, and they defended. They defended their falsehood, and they defended their false worship

00:13:21--> 00:13:23

of their idols that they used to worship.

00:13:25--> 00:13:27

But did any of that.

00:13:28--> 00:13:31

Did any of that change?

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

What Allah subhanahu wa tada and His Messenger considered these people to be?

00:13:41--> 00:13:44

Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam approve of them?

00:13:46--> 00:13:51

Did he say no problem? who remained upon your ways, we will leave you alone.

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

Did he say you are not emotionally cool?

00:13:57--> 00:14:04

Because you don't consider these idols to have divine powers? Did he say

00:14:05--> 00:14:13

that as long as you consider these to be intermediaries and you don't believe them to be the Creator of the heavens and the universe?

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

Then it's okay you

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

know,

00:14:19--> 00:14:20

rather

00:14:21--> 00:14:27

what Allah considered them from the first day until the last day of the revolution was the same.

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

And that was that they are mostly Khun, those who associate partners with a lot

00:14:36--> 00:14:46

and they will never be Muslims. And they will never be able to enter Jannah or BC from the Hellfire as long as they die upon that state.

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

And so this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind.

00:14:56--> 00:14:58

He left behind this Diem

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

making clear who Allah subhana wa Taala was?

00:15:05--> 00:15:08

Why Allah alone deserves worship?

00:15:09--> 00:15:16

And what is worship? And what are acts of ibadah that we can devote to Allah?

00:15:17--> 00:15:21

And who is a Muslim? And who is a carrier, and who is emotional.

00:15:23--> 00:15:25

And also, how about all the Allahu anglim.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

They took this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:15:31--> 00:15:33

and they pass it on to the next generation.

00:15:34--> 00:15:38

And the next generation, they pass it on to the next generation.

00:15:40--> 00:15:47

And this is what the first three generations of Islam were upon a stellar facade

00:15:49--> 00:15:52

as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attested

00:15:53--> 00:16:03

to them being the best of his own, when he said that the best of generations is my generation, and then those who follow them, and then those who follow them.

00:16:06--> 00:16:07

But then what happened after that

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

was that you had various sects that started to appear in Islam.

00:16:16--> 00:16:24

And they started to bring with them ideas, and beliefs that they had,

00:16:25--> 00:16:26

from before,

00:16:28--> 00:16:33

from various religions. And so they introduce them into Islam.

00:16:36--> 00:16:56

And so among these beliefs, or among these practices, was glorification of graves. And so you had the first sex to glorify and venerate Greaves were the Shia, and the ismailia.

00:16:58--> 00:17:01

And so they would glorify and venerate Grier's.

00:17:03--> 00:17:05

That's how we started. And then

00:17:06--> 00:17:10

they started to worship these graves, and those buried in them.

00:17:12--> 00:17:26

And so they would make their do to the inhabitants of these grains, whether they claim that these are prophets or saints, and then slowly and surely,

00:17:28--> 00:17:33

that entered into Sufi orders and sets.

00:17:35--> 00:17:39

And so initially, those who attributed themselves to Sunni Islam,

00:17:40--> 00:17:43

there was no grave worship among them

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

for many centuries,

00:17:47--> 00:17:54

until the scholars in the sixth, seventh and eighth centuries of Islam, when they would

00:17:55--> 00:18:05

refute those who would worship graves, they would be refuting the Shia, and the Israelis and these other sects.

00:18:07--> 00:18:14

And so you had many scholars of Islam who would refute them, and who would call this grave worship to be shared,

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

such as even tinian, the other scholars of that time.

00:18:19--> 00:18:44

But then after his time, and after that time, many centuries past, and slowly, you started to have those who attribute themselves to Sunni Islam, who started to glorify graves of saints. And then eventually, they started to direct access to the data

00:18:45--> 00:18:54

to the inhabitants of these grains, whether they are profits, whether they are saints. And so, slowly and surely,

00:18:55--> 00:19:04

grave worship had penetrated to the point where many who attributed themselves to Sunni Islam had no problem with it.

00:19:07--> 00:19:12

And so the scholars of that time, they started

00:19:13--> 00:19:17

to call out and denounce this clear cut shift.

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

And so, you had scholars the likes of Mohammed bin Abdul Wahab,

00:19:23--> 00:19:44

who called the people back to Satoshi and who warned them from this blatant shift that was taking place at that time. And so naturally, naturally, the people they felt a need to defend themselves. And so, the scholars

00:19:47--> 00:19:57

who defended these acts, they wrote, they wrote, works, trying to refute the scholars of that time

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

and saying that these scholars already

00:20:00--> 00:20:06

Extreme, they have brought something new by calling grave worship a ship.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

And so just like

00:20:11--> 00:20:40

the moose raccoon of Mecca, felt that their wheeze were coming under attack. And they felt the need to defend their beliefs and their ways. Likewise, you had people who attribute themselves to this owner, who felt the need to defend what they felt was perfectly right. But that did not change the reality of what they were doing.

00:20:42--> 00:21:03

And so what they were doing was clear Kufa and shear. And the scholars of the time until today, warned against it, clarifying what this is calling it for what it was. And so they came under attack, and so you had reputations against them, and then you had counter reputations.

00:21:04--> 00:21:09

And so this inner just In brief, is what took place in this oma

00:21:10--> 00:21:31

from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until today. barakallahu li walakum field for Angela Halim.

00:22:44--> 00:22:45

Those

00:22:46--> 00:22:48

who defended practices

00:22:49--> 00:22:54

that are deemed in Islam as being clear cut shick.

00:22:55--> 00:23:12

Whether it be in the past, or whether it be in the present, whether they be su fees or non Sophie's, whether they be from deviant sex, or whether they attribute themselves to Sunni Islam.

00:23:13--> 00:23:15

They assumed

00:23:16--> 00:23:17

that as long

00:23:18--> 00:23:21

as a person considers himself to be a Muslim,

00:23:22--> 00:23:24

and he says the Shahada

00:23:26--> 00:23:31

that whatever he does after it is, it can never be considered as [???].

00:23:32--> 00:23:37

And he can never be called a Muslim, no matter what he does.

00:23:38--> 00:23:46

And so after that, they brought flimsy arguments that really in reality, do not hold water,

00:23:48--> 00:23:54

trying to defend the actions of people who go to Greece of things,

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

making dua to those who are in those greens,

00:24:01--> 00:24:03

defending them.

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

Seeing that this is not grief worship,

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

defending them, saying

00:24:10--> 00:24:15

that this does not constitute [???], that takes a person out of the fold of Islam.

00:24:16--> 00:24:24

Why? Because this person, he does not believe that that saint is a God.

00:24:25--> 00:24:26

He doesn't believe

00:24:27--> 00:24:37

that these inhabitants of the greens have divine qualities, divine characteristics that only belong to Allah.

00:24:38--> 00:24:42

They said as long as the person does not believe

00:24:43--> 00:24:49

that the saints have powers that only belong to Allah, then this is not sure.

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

This person is not committing shift. As long as he believes that Allah is one

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

and that Allah does not have partners.

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

And that Allah alone controls what happens in this universe, then none of that

00:25:07--> 00:25:10

is considered shift that takes a person out of the fold of Islam.

00:25:11--> 00:25:37

And so if we were to analyze such arguments, then we would find that they are weak from the very, from the very foundation, and they cannot be backed by a single ayah or a single howdy from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, nor from a single statement of the self, or the early scholars of Islam,

00:25:38--> 00:26:10

rather the contrary, you find upon Ayah from the Quran, Hadith after hudy statement upon statement of the early scholars of Islam, who declared such acts to be blatant shift, a major shift that takes a person out of the fold of Islam. And so Allah Subhana who were to Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam outlined certain acts as being a rabada

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

that this is a liberta

00:26:15--> 00:26:17

unconditional Eva

00:26:18--> 00:26:24

The only Allah subhanahu wa tada deserves, such as sola.

00:26:25--> 00:26:28

So yeah, I'm fasting had

00:26:30--> 00:26:39

slaughtering a sacrifice, making dua These are only a few examples that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:26:41--> 00:26:46

gave that are clear examples of what constitutes a data.

00:26:47--> 00:26:52

Meaning that irrespective of your intention, it doesn't matter

00:26:54--> 00:27:00

of what your intention is, as long as you direct one of these acts of data

00:27:01--> 00:27:04

to other than Allah subhanahu wa tada

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

then it constitutes [???].

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

It does not matter

00:27:10--> 00:27:19

if you intended to perform a bad or not, it does not matter whether you have intended that

00:27:22--> 00:27:55

you are performing, if he bad that directing a barrier to this person, it does not matter whether you are believing that the person in the grave has characteristics that only belong to Allah, it doesn't matter. If you consider that person to be God or not, or a partner of a lot. We're not none of that matters. When it comes to these acts of really bad that Allah and His Messenger, considered to be for Allah alone.

00:27:56--> 00:28:06

And so it was because of this, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered the mush raccoon, to be mushy deikun.

00:28:07--> 00:28:25

If we were to analyze and look at the life of the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam. And what he went through with his people, with kurush, and with the most raccoon of the Arabs, we find that he considered the most raccoon, irrespective

00:28:26--> 00:28:33

of what they believed about those idols that they used to worship.

00:28:34--> 00:28:43

And so when he would call them to worship a lot instead of the idols, and say that Allah has no partners, they would say,

00:28:45--> 00:28:59

we believe that Allah is one, that the creator of the universe is one. But we only believe these idols to be intermediaries. They are only intermediaries.

00:29:00--> 00:29:07

We don't believe that they are gods. We don't believe that they have divine characteristics that only belong to Allah.

00:29:09--> 00:29:18

These were some of the arguments that they used to put forward. The same arguments that the greve worshipers and their defenders today put forward.

00:29:20--> 00:29:22

And the same thing could be said

00:29:23--> 00:29:26

about other religions of the past and the present.

00:29:29--> 00:29:41

Those who worship that he said it he said, the Christians, those who worship idols, from among the Hindus and others, they seem that they say the exact same thing.

00:29:42--> 00:29:47

That we believe that there is only one true supreme being who created everything.

00:29:49--> 00:29:58

And who has no true partner in his lordship, in him being the God who created everything, and who can provide and so on and so forth.

00:30:00--> 00:30:27

We only believe that these idols or these objects of worship, that we direct our in order to, that they can help us in some way. They can help us in some way to have our supplications and our desires to be accepted, they can help us in some way to benefit us to reach a loss of Hannah who went to Hana. That is the only reason for why we worship them.

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

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:30:33--> 00:30:35

of loss of Hannah, who were to Hannah

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

wants us to worship Him alone.

00:30:40--> 00:30:59

And he sent the prophets and the messengers. In fact, he created everything that he created for the purpose of that, that he Subhana who would be worshipped alone. And what that means is that ibadah should be for him alone.

00:31:01--> 00:31:21

Yeah, you Hannah should do to rob the human lady, hello, cocoon? Well, larina will probably come holla come to takuan. Allah addresses not just the believers, not just the Muslims, but all of mankind. In the first command that you will find in the Quran

00:31:22--> 00:31:37

or mankind, worship who Allah does not even tell mankind worship Allah. Rather, Allah calls him to worship their Lord, who they recognize as being their Lord.

00:31:40--> 00:31:51

The mushy corner of Mecca. They recognize that Allah is the Lord of everything. And so Allah addresses them all mankind, worship,

00:31:52--> 00:31:56

worship your Lord and the Lord of those before you

00:31:58--> 00:32:06

so that perhaps you attain a taqwa Allah, the giant Allah cooler, Buffy Roshan was Sena abena.

00:32:08--> 00:32:13

Wenzel, Amina sama Martin, for us Raja v Minister maratea is called

00:32:15--> 00:32:20

the one the one who made the earth

00:32:21--> 00:32:26

to be straight and spacious, like a bed, the one

00:32:27--> 00:32:31

the one who made the sky and the heavens

00:32:32--> 00:32:33

as a roof and the structure

00:32:35--> 00:32:38

and the one who brings down rain from the sky

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

to produce vegetation.

00:32:43--> 00:32:45

lilla here and then

00:32:46--> 00:33:01

we're into Tyler moon. So do not set up rivals partners. with Allah while you know, Abdullah bin ambassador of the Allahu anhu asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:33:02--> 00:33:22

the Messenger of Allah, what is the greatest sin that a person can ever commit? What is the greatest thing that a person can do? That is greatest in the sight in the sight of Allah subhanahu wa taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and Treasure Island de la he needs done.

00:33:25--> 00:33:33

To set up a rival with Allah, a partner with Allah, whether it be in belief, or whether it be in worship,

00:33:35--> 00:33:37

when it is a law who created you.

00:33:39--> 00:33:41

And so, my dear brothers and sisters,

00:33:42--> 00:33:44

as a final piece of advice,

00:33:51--> 00:33:54

it is important upon each and every single Muslim

00:33:57--> 00:34:00

to stick to concepts and and ideas

00:34:03--> 00:34:06

rather than individuals and personalities.

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

And so, whatever somebody says, no matter who it is, no matter how great of a scholar it is, examine his words and look at what he is seeing irrespective of who he is, except for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Why because every single human being is fallible,

00:34:35--> 00:34:40

he is bound to making mistakes in passing around judgment,

00:34:42--> 00:34:45

except for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:34:47--> 00:34:53

And so, no matter who it is, stick to ideas and concepts

00:34:55--> 00:34:59

and to look at how great the person is in your eyes.

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

And so when it comes to the concept of mn and Cooper, to heed and

00:35:07--> 00:35:30

learn what it means, from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and what the scholars have taught, irrespective of who those scholars were in history, or what they may have done, because in the end of the day there were human beings who were bound to make mistakes. As for those who are alive today,

00:35:31--> 00:35:44

then I leave you with the advice of the great companion Abdullah ibn Masaru Dora the Allahu Allah, who said, Men can ama stenden philea Stan Beeman Padma

00:35:45--> 00:35:47

for in who lie men.

00:35:51--> 00:35:55

He said, There whoever has to follow somebody.

00:35:56--> 00:35:58

If you have to follow someone,

00:36:00--> 00:36:02

then follow someone who has passed away.

00:36:05--> 00:36:06

Because

00:36:07--> 00:36:09

those who are living,

00:36:11--> 00:36:14

they are bound to fit

00:36:16--> 00:36:18

while they are still alive,

00:36:19--> 00:36:25

they are bound to change. Even if today they seem to be upon the truth

00:36:26--> 00:36:28

and upon right guidance.

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

You don't know how they may end their life. They will go through change after change after change.

00:36:37--> 00:36:39

Whereas those who have passed away

00:36:41--> 00:36:46

they have left this world follow them if they died upon the truth.

00:36:47--> 00:36:57

And he said this, referring to the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and it could be extended to all of the scholars of the helo sooner when Jana

00:36:59--> 00:37:11

who lived and died preaching the truth, we ask Allah subhanahu wa tada to show us the truth as being the truth and to make us to follow it We ask Allah subhana wa tada

00:37:12--> 00:37:20

to show us falsehood as being falsehood to keep us far away from it had also lucidly Morocco Morocco Mullah
