My dear brothers and sisters,
Allah subhanho wa Taala
created each and every single one of us for a purpose
from the time of Adam Alayhis Salam, until the last man to walk the face of the earth.
One Alpha lock to Regina well into in early June. I have not created the jinn nor mankind except to worship me
to worship Allah subhanho wa taala.
And so it was for this reason that Allah subhanho wa Taala said the Prophets and Messengers throughout history
what are called the bassinet, equally automatic Rasulullah
and near a Buddha Allah which tanimoto hood
that we sent in every nation among every civilization, a messenger
calling to what calling
the people to worship Allah subhanahu wata and alone
and to reject all false gods
and so all the prophets and the messengers they brought this same message of singling out Allah subhanahu wa jahana through a to heed and worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala alone
until there remained the last of Allah's messengers Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
So prior to ALLAH SubhanA who were to Allah sending him
they remained nobody on earth.
That was upon the true guidance from Allah subhanho wa Taala
as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
Mercato Allahu Akbar Kulu Raja who hijama wa boom in LA vaca Yemen al Kitab oh come up allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
that prior to Allah sending the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Allah subhana who were to Hanna
looked at everyone on the earth, the Arabs and the non Arabs. And he looked at him with this would dislike except remnants of a little kita.
And so no one remained
upon the deen that Allah subhanahu wa taala sent except rare cases of individuals
who recognized that there is only one God and only one true being who deserves worship.
And that is Allah subhanahu wa Donna. And so you had the full of fat. You had those rare individuals among the Arabs, who still worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala without worshipping the idols they were upon.
They were upon the deen of Ibrahim Ali has Salam, and you had remnants of al Kitab, the Jews and the Christians, but even they had a distorted scripture that they were following. And so Allah subhanahu wa Jalla said Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanahu Attallah addressing Adnan Kitab, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says yes
100 Kitabi yeah hello kita Caja Rasulullah you begin hola como Hala Turati mineralia o al Kitab.
Our messenger, our messenger has come to you with Clear Ayat after a period of time when no messenger came.
And so Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came at a time
he came at a time of darkness upon the earth.
He came at a time when
there was no one worshiping Allah subhanho wa Taala upon the way that Allah subhanho wa Taala willed and he wanted
and so the majority of the people
they resorted to worshipping 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,
they directly directed there a bada to these creations of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent in this situation.
And so what did he call the people to
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
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.
He maintains it, he provides for everyone.
He gave us everything that we have, He is the One who created us and He is the one who will take us back
and who will cause us to rise on the Day of Judgment. This is Allah subhanho wa taala, who has every attribute, and every perfect characteristic
that none of the creation happens.
After that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
preached to the people that it is only he SubhanaHu wa Tada who is described as such, only he alone deserves to be worshipped.
And so no one else deserves the worship because everyone else and everything else is imperfect in every sense, whereas Allah subhanahu 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 him?
After that, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
taught the people how to worship Allah subhanho wa taala.
And so it was not just this is Allah worship him and that's it.
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 true?
And so when we do that, we are worshipping Allah, based upon guidance from Allah subhanho wa taala.
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 subhanahu wa taala whether it be ritualistic or otherwise, and so he taught us the five pillars of Islam. Each one constitutes an act of Ibadah whether it be something in the heart, whether it be something that we say, whether it be physical actions that we do.
After that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us
the reward for those
who worship Allah subhanahu wa taala based upon all of this,
that they reward with Allah subhanho wa Taala is great. And that is it her
Do Janna in the accuracy
and the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa taala
and that those who refuse to worship Allah subhanahu wa taala in this way,
and they decide to remain upon their ways, worshiping others besides Allah. Then the consequence of that is eternal hellfire, eternal punishment in that era.
And so there were those who accepted this basic message of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
accepting the message that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam brought from Allah subhanho wa taala, recognizing who Allah subhanahu wa taala was, and why Allah subhanho wa Taala deserves our worship, and then worshiping Allah subhanahu McDonogh sacrificing everything for the pleasure of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And they were the Companions, the Sahaba of the Prophet sallallahu. I didn't he was editor.
And there were those who refused
to accept this message. And they were the most raccoon
starting with the most raccoon of Quraysh in that car, and extending to all of the most raccoon of the Arabs.
And so they refused
to submit to what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Brocket. And so
instead of complying and instead of submitting,
even after it was clear, that what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam brought was the truth from Allah subhanho wa taala. He brought sign after sign evidence after evidence,
but they remained stubborn upon their ways.
And they decided,
they decided to find arguments and ways of justifying them following their wings.
And this was because they felt that they were under attack.
And so they went on the defensive, instead of submitting.
They felt that their way of life had come under attack. And so
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.
How could he make the gods to be one?
A dial early Hunter era?
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
of their idols that they used to worship.
But did any of that.
Did any of that change?
What Allah subhana who were to hide it and His Messenger considered these people to be?
Did the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam approve of them?
Did he say no problem who remain upon your ways? We will leave you alone.
Did he say you are not mushy Kuhn?
Because you don't consider these idols to have divine powers? Did he say
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?
Then it's okay. You are not actually Kuhn. No.
what Allah considered them from the first day until the last day of the revelation was the same.
And that was that they are mostly Khun, those who associate partners with Allah,
and they will never be Muslims. And they will never be able to enter Jannah or be saved from the Hellfire as long as they die upon that state.
And so this is what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam left behind
He left behind this Deen
making clear who Allah subhanahu what time it was,
why Allah alone deserves worship.
And what is worship, and what are acts of rabada that we can devote to Allah
and who is a Muslim, and who is a kafir, and who is emotionally
and the Sahaba of the Allahu Anhu.
They took this from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
and they pass it on to the next generation.
And the next generation, they pass it on to the next generation.
And this is what the first three generations of Islam were upon a seller for Salah
as a Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam attested
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.
But then what happened after that
was that you had various sects that started to appear in Islam.
And they started to bring with them ideas and beliefs that they had
from various religions. And so they introduce them into Islam.
And so among these beliefs, or among these practices, was glorification of graves. And so you had the first sects to glorify and venerate grieves, where the Shia
and the Ismail really Yeah.
And so they would glorify and venerate graves.
That's how we started. And then
they started to worship these graves, and those buried in them.
And so they would make their dua, to the inhabitants of these graves, whether they claim that these are prophets or saints, and then slowly and surely,
that entered into Sufi orders and seconds.
And so initially, those who attributed themselves to Sunni Islam,
there was no grave worship among them
for many centuries,
until the scholars in the sixth, seventh and eighth centuries of Islam, when they would
refute those who would worship graves, they would be refuting the Shia, and the Israelis and these other sects.
And so you had many scholars of Islam who would refute them, and who would call this grave worship to be shift,
such as Ibn Taymiyyah, the other scholars of that time.
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 acts of very bad
to the inhabitants of these graves, whether they are prophets, whether they are saints. And so slowly and surely,
grave worship had penetrated to the point where many who attributed themselves to Sunni Islam had no problem with it.
At all the scholars of that time, they started
to call out and denounce this clear cut ship.
And so you had scholars the likes of Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab,
who called the people back to a toe heaved and who warned them from this blatant * that was taking place at that time. And so naturally, naturally, the people they felt a need to defend themselves. And so, the scholars
who defended these acts, they wrote, they wrote, works, trying to refute
The scholars of that time
and saying that these scholars are extreme, they have brought something new by calling grave worship a ship.
And so just like
the mushy, Kuhn has Maccha felt that their ways 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.
And so what they were doing was clear, kosher and *. 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.
And so this inner just, in brief, is what took place in this ummah
from the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam until today BarakAllahu li Walakum fille Quran la vie him whenever anyone er can be mafia he mean it was declared Hakeem Kuru Mathis maroon was still federal law. How do you welcome Melissa Elon Musk Amina McAleenan BMO habia festival futile who in know who have a photo rockin?

who defended practices that are deemed in Islam as being clear cut Shick.
Whether it be in the past, or whether it be in the present, whether they be Sufis, or non Sufis, whether they be from deviant sects, or whether they attribute themselves to Sunni Islam.
that as long
as a person considers themselves to be a Muslim,
and he says the shahada
that whatever he does after this, it can never be considered as *.
And he can never be called a mushrik, no matter what he does.
And so after that, they brought flimsy arguments that really in reality, do not hold water,
trying to defend the actions of people who go to Greece of things,
making dua to those who are in those Greeners
Seeing that this is not Greek worship,
defending them, saying
that this does not constitute *, that takes a person out of the fold of Islam.
Why? Because this person, he does not believe that that saint is a God.
He doesn't believe that these inhabitants of the Greaves have divine qualities, divine characteristics, that only belong to Allah.
They said as long as the person does not believe
that the saints have powers that only belong to Allah than this is not *.
This person is not committing ship.
As long as he believes that a
Allah is one,
and that Allah does not have partners. And that Allah alone controls what happens in this universe, then none of that
is considered Schick that takes a person out of the fold of Islam.
And so if we were to analyze such arguments, that we would find, that they are weak from the very, from the very foundation, and they cannot be backed by a single idea, or a single Hadith from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, nor from a single statement of the self, or the early scholars of Islam,
rather the contrary, you find a or upon Ayah from the Quran, Hadith after Hadith statement upon statement of the early scholars of Islam, who declared such acts to be blatant schicke 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 batter
that this is a vida.
Unconditional a bad
the only Allah subhanahu wa taala deserves such as Salah.
So yeah, I'm fasting, Hajj,
slaughtering a sacrifice, making dua. These are only a few examples that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
gave that are clear examples of what constitutes a data.
Meaning that irrespective of your intention, it doesn't matter
of what your intention is, as long as you direct one of these acts of any data
to other than Allah subhanahu wa Tada
then it constitutes,
it does not matter.
If you intended to perform a BA or not, it does not matter whether you have intended that
you are performing really bad at directing the bad or 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 Allah or not. None of that matters when it comes to these acts of the Hebrew, that Allah and His Messenger, considered to be for Allah alone.
And so it was because of this, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam considered the mushroom raccoon to be emotionally cool.
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 machete cone of the Arabs, we find that he considered the mushy cone, irrespective
of what they believed about those idols that are used to worship.
And so when he would call them to worship Allah instead of the idols, and say that Allah has no partners, they would say,
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.
We don't believe that they are gods. We don't believe that they have divine characteristics that only belong to Allah.
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.
And the same thing could be said
about other religions of the past and the present.
Those who worship that he's a highly he's Salam, the Christians, those who worship idols, from among the Hindus and others. They seem that they say the exact same thing.
That we believe that there is only one true supreme being who created everything.
And who has no true partner in His Lordship, in him being the God who created everything.
Saying, and who can provide and so on and so forth. But we only believe that these idols are these objects of worship that we direct our either to, that they can help us in some way. They can help us in some way to have our supplications in our hands to be accepted. They can help us in some way to benefit us to reach Allah Subhana. Who want to Hannah, that is the only reason for why we worship them.
And so my dear brothers and sisters
Oh Allah subhanahu wa Hanna
wants us to worship Him alone.
And he sent the prophets and the messenger is in fact He created everything that he created for the purpose of that, that he Subhanahu wa Taala be worshipped alone. And what that means is that a bad should be for him alone.
Yeah, you rob the common lady, hello cocoon? Well leadin, amicably come holla come to tech goon. 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
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.
The ministry calling of Mecca, they recognize that Allah is the Lord of everything. And so Allah addresses them all mankind, worship,
worship your Lord and the Lord of those before you

for laughter Jaya Hello Lila here and then
we're into into Allah moon. So do not set up rivals partners with Allah while you know, Abdullah ibn Abbas, Ravi Allahu and Hoonah asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 Tajmahal Allah He needs done, well who are Holika
to set up a rival with Allah, a partner with Allah, whether it be in belief, or whether it be in worship,
when it is Allah who created you.
And so my dear brothers and sisters,
as a final piece of advice
it is important upon each and every single Muslim
to stick to concepts and ideas
rather than individuals and personalities.
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 saying irrespective of who he is. Except for the prophets, Allah Allahu Allah He was.
Why because every single human being is fallible.
He is bound to making mistakes in passing a wrong judgment,
except for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam.
And so no matter who it is, stick to ideas and concepts
and to look at
See how great the person is in your eyes.
And so when it comes to the concept of Eman and Cooper Tawheed and *,
learn what it means from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And what the scholars have taught, irrespective of who those callers were in history, or what they may have done, because in the end of the day, there were human beings who are bound to make mistakes. As for those who are alive today,
then I leave you with the advice of the great companion on urban myths ruled or the Allahu
who said, mankind I'm Sternen Philea Stan Beeman Padma
for inner who liat men, as
he said, that whoever has to follow somebody.
If you have to follow someone,
then follow someone who has passed away.
those who are living,
they are bound to fit now.
While they are still alive,
they are bound to change. Even if today they seem to be upon the truth
and upon re guidance.
You don't know how they may end their life. They will go through change after change after change.
Whereas those who have passed away
they have left this world follow them if they died upon the truth.
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 Sunnah will Jana
who lived and died preaching the truth, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to show us the truth as being the truth and to make us to follow it We ask Allah subhana Hunwick data
to show us falsehood as being falsehood and to keep us far away from it
