Howdy, howdy Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was

brothers and sisters in Islam, we continue with the elements the factors which feeds
what is known to be cultural Islam.
mentioned in the last
that the conflict in this world right now, the nature of this conflict is a cultural conflict.
For some of you may not be aware of these terms.
What is the culture?
culture is a compilation
of people's beliefs,
the moral principles
which defines what is good and what is bad.
Like it's culturally okay to have a girlfriend, for Ironman in America.
It's culturally accepted.
That's their culture. That's their values.
So, a conflict here when two cultures collide,
it is not okay in Islam
It is okay to worship whomever you want to watch, we can make up your own religion here in America. And you can call to a two you can build your own sanctuary seriously.
But this is not culturally sound in Islam. So, this is what you call a cultural conflict
is when two sets of values beliefs collide clash. And it can be if it is not addressed by the way, it can be a cause for violence and crimes,
and so forth.
So we mentioned that the broad dominant cultures
in the face of this earth as we speak,
the western values
and the Islamic values
that Chinese are still hiding behind the wall. Maybe the wall will be broken one day, but we don't know what kind of values we have. They have but we hear bits and pieces but the people who are trying to remove their own values are Muslims and the West. You know, they go to another country and they want to spread democracy they want to freedom
and so forth.
That's what we hear in the media. But what is the real agenda, something that is you got to figure out on your own.
And we mentioned that chance, or the chances
for the survival of the Western culture
are not there.
Because if you read thoroughly through history, you will find out that for a culture to sustain itself,
it has to have
The moment that you open the door to
same gender marriage, homosexuality,
It becomes self destructive, regardless of how advanced they are. They can go as far as iPhone 1720. But sooner or later, it will collapse. A look at the Greek look at the Romans before us.
The only culture
which can sustain itself is the Islamic culture.
Because we have values
and why these values are consistent,
because the source is divine.
You see the society here.
They let democracy identify the values what is good and what is bad.
And people change from one place to another and I've given you this example, last cookbook that 100 years ago in America dating and especially in the Bible Belt states
is actually hard on the Bible and they will say the Bible sets
but now it's okay.
So, when you become
when you make the governing
factor on these values that he will
that people change there.
But you see
one of the most beautiful explanation I read this morning about the explanation of this verse.
Hi euro emetine reject leanness.
You Muslims are the best oma, Allah subhana wa tada extracted from humanity for humanity. Why? Look at these
what and how
are you enjoying what is good and you forbid what is evil, this is what we call you spread morality.
Here is what took me noon, on the basis of the belief in Allah.
So the source of what is good
and the source of what is bad
is Allah. That is why, one of the reasons even though it is the most important, one of the three, but it was bought at the end. Because your source of
the knowledge of that model, the good goodness, your source to learn about the evil is Allah. They believe in Allah, Allah tells you what is right and what is wrong.
We said that Islam came to lead, and it will lead one day, no question about it. When Muslims wake up and rise to the challenge
and for Muslims to wake up and rise for the challenge.
They have to live their Islamic culture
not the cultural Islam.
I'm confusing enough.
What is the difference? There is a distinction between Islamic culture and cultural Islam.
What most of the people are living now Muslims they are living, cultural Islam.
What is Islamic culture?
Cultural which arises from the implementation of Islam in your life.
You know, here's I'm gonna bring it down to earth to you.
When you see something that really like, like the sunrise, wow.
That's a culture
but not Islamic culture.
What is the Islamic culture? So Panama, Panama, that's the Islamic culture.
When something upsets you,
what is gosh
I know these are little things, but it reflects when you feed your character.
You see, when you implement the five pillars of Islam,
when you implement the six pillars of faith, the man or cannoli man
and when you implement the two pillars of action,
you produce a culture, you produce an Islamic character.
There is a moral objective, behind every ritual.
Look when we pray, one of the most beautiful things that we learn from Salah is to be humble.
How? By placing your forehead in the ground, in front of Allah, unity
these are all characters zeca
stinginess being generous the behind every ritual in Islam, there is a character
translated the Quran into his own characters. When I shall have the last one I was asked about his character. She said the Quran
his character was the Quran.
When you implement Islam, you produce a culture.
Let's go back to that, gosh, thing. What should you say?
When we enjoy our children achieving something, you know, Muslims do that now.
The only thing that we know in the Islamic culture that a man can club actually, somebody can flop
is a sister. When the man messes up in the salon, she may do this.
So the man wakes up if there is no man in front to correct the man. But what is clubbing?
I know these are little things, but again, it's reflective of who you are.
You know, when when the Muslims were oppressed in Mecca, and they were going through it.
They became so happy when Omar accepted Islam.
Did the club read the Hadith
What did they do?
again, brothers and sisters in Islam,
these are little things, but I'm mentioning them for example.
You know, when somebody passes away you go, Oh, I'm sorry. Sorry, what do you mean you're sorry?
What should he say when somebody passes away?
The law in Le lahemaa Ahava while he left lahemaa aka
wakulla shaman, and this is again, this is cultural Islam, I'm sorry, cultural Islam. And this is
winnings, music, mixing, dancing,
Islamic culture is totally different. So there is a distinction between Islamic culture
and cultural Islam.
Islamic culture arises from the implementation of the religion, everything to the best of your ability, do do not do recommended and so forth. When you do this. You produce an Islamic culture, in your home in your life, and that is what is the purpose behind the revelation. But also Islam is totally different. There's something that you are
you seen your parents, your family, your clan doing it
and you just followed the same exact path they are doing.
We mentioned that there are four factors which do feed that cultural Islam number one, the inherited practices. And this is one of the most
dangerous in my opinion.
And this is what the scorners giving it the name sooner to
the path, the way of the ancestors imagine every messenger every prophet, Allah subhanho wa Taala sent the first issue that he has to deal with is this matters.
And this was mentioned in six places in the Quran.
Surah Baqarah surah either su recruit man
twice and one more I forgot. What is it in wa giardina
what you're telling me doesn't
fit me because it's not compatible with my ancestors way
my parents used to do this. You're not better than my parents. You're not i'm not going to leave the way of my father. To you.
Can you imagine fo when it
came to the table, Brahim ericeira
I mean he was a very interesting era a way of
of dealing with the situation
is people used to worship
imagine you know a statues that you start you that you go and close yourself and you make his eye green
and you put it in front of you and
I mean where is your intellect here?
What is your What is your money you have it's exactly what the Trinity tell you that there are three gods in one Father Son Holy Ghost is one
when is your intellect to accept something like that there is no intellect.
They tell you in
Salam did something very interesting.
You know they used to worship these different idols and they are not the same size.
So he waited until the left town and he excused themselves by saying I'm sick today I can go and he went and he broke all the idols
except the biggest one
And he places
the arcs the tool with which he broke these idols on the shoulder of the biggest one.
So they came back with it. This
is what I was trying to tell them. Okay, guys, these gods had a fight.
And this big guy one.
Listen on life. Well, sometimes I see my own children fight like
people have the same in Egypt, they tell you my single button at the top that are sharp, I don't know how to say they're, they're interesting.
So like, why is the gods
if they are the same brand, if you are in the same business, if you're in the real estate business, people are gonna compete with you the game must be a competition. And that competition somehow can get out of hand. So what happened is this big guy, he was able because you guys need him to he was able to kick all these guys out. And he destroyed all of them. So ask him what happened.
and what was the excuse?
your file that was the excuse our file
We're doing this. That's why we're doing it. It doesn't make any sense. It doesn't.
Oh, who backs who backs this ideology? Because we were brought up to respect our parents or respect the culture. You're from each respect the culture, respect the parents, even if it is wrong, respected.
Who backs this up? shaitan
la love your loved one who will
be Santa Lucia. Hi, Carlos aloha to Salah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, In English a foreigner
shy shaitan is sitting
in the way of the son of Adam. Whenever he wants the son of Adam wants to do something good. He will try to instruct him. Turn him away.
Look at the first path. shaitan doesn't want you to take God Allah who feels sorry, Islam.
for him in his way to Islam.
When you want to become a Muslim,
Muslim hockey cotton, almost like someone who is not a Muslim completely is a Christian is a Jew.
And he won't accept Islam or someone who was following cultural Islam and he wanted to follow Islamic culture.
Both know what we will say to him, but he will say to
us too slim shuffle is gonna say that are too slim. What Dina? Why Dina Addy.
Come on and shame on you. You could have become a Muslim, you could have followed this guy, follow that religion.
And you live the way for your father's
your culture, your country.
And if you really want to translate this Hadith, connected with Hades, Messiah has
Hadith seidelman Messiah
when the uncle of the Prophet was on the verge of death, what happened? He had two individuals calling him to two different ways.
This one is calling him to Islam.
The other two are calling him to the way of the father's Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling him
Oh Ha drew letter B Hello Hello.
So I can help you in
on the other side,
Come on, you're gonna give the way of
Islam Islamic culture, culture, Islamic culture, of course it is not a Muslim to begin with.
is a lot of people. You come and you present to them.
And here is the evidence.
No, you're not gonna do my parents were doing this.
That's the first thing which feed that division in the oma to be united in one brand of Islam.
Which is the Islamic culture
which is we need to do to unite the front in order to deal with the other cultures which promote polytheism and morality. You see we have to be united.
But we cannot be united because of these factors. These elements another one brothers and sisters in Islam.
Just to add to add
is religious innovations.
Yeah, show you porn loves avatar.
Sophia theory says
Are you prior minal kaviraj,
to be indulged in performing innovations, is far beloved or more beloved to Satan than a major sin
Even though stealing and all these are Haram, but why?
Because the person who commits the major sin he knows it's a major sin.
And if Allah wills one day he will repent. He sits in a lecture like this and maybe the Imam will talk about Toba. He goes to hunch that they fall off.
But the issue is with invasion, yeah tacky to her he believes it's the religion
shaitan makes it will that fit Anisha
that the misconceptions regarding the religion are more dangerous than a shower, the whims and the desires,
the owns and the desire. You know, I seen this multiple times.
When a cat
and the cat's do that in Egypt, steal something from your plate will never eat it next to you. It will run away and eat it somewhere else. You will not see it until she's done eating it. But when you throw it to the cat, the cat eats it right there in front of you.
I tested this myself multiple times.
While the person who is doing mortgage still asked his
Paula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and issue Mahek after surgery. wa*a
a sin is what aches, I feel funny about this thing then.
Even if you find hungry people who are willing to give you fat to make you have a good sleep at night, you still wake up with that nightmare. It's Hara
elita is a very dangerous innovation Islam. Specially when this innovation has to do with the belief system.
Brothers and sisters in Islam.
Well, I have something happened in my village. I just came from Egypt last night. And I was there for almost 10 days.
Something happened in my village. I never imagined that it will happen in my lifetime.
Half of my village are Coptic
Coptic Christians. From the time of the Greek the Romans they never converted to Islam yet. And this is by itself and evidence that Islam doesn't force anybody.
So all the sudden I wake up in the morning, and my family are telling me that the Coptic people are bringing
the bones of this lady from France
who died 200 years ago.
They are placing it in a very nice display.
You know like a coffin kind of somehow the mummified some of it.
And they are bringing it to the village so that people can touch it and get healed and cured.
Out of this world out of this world
imagine you go to bones, and curl up in these bones to help you have these bones can help themselves while they are not back live life. Why don't they come back to life?
And here's the funny thing. Some of the Muslims when they run that hijabs and stuff, too.
That's the fitna right here. And and here's the news. By the way, the French government paid 500,000 I'm not sure I can verify these numbers, but that's what I heard $1,000 for the security of the mission, the hustle development, jobs metamodel the mismatch
the security mission, imagine this. What is this coming from?
With from that? mysticism?
What is mysticism
There is a word in Arabic for it. I'm not gonna say it now. So some of you don't have to leave the football.
I'm sure none of you are here. But what is mysticism?
People who promoted the fact that there is a parallel religion to Islam.
What you read and practice is the Sharia is for the common
for the layman Muslims, but there are hidden knowledge,
secret knowledge in Islam,
only certain people have access to it. We call them Alia
that term in English scenes
and for you to qualify to receive that knowledge,
you have to become a Marine,
and when you become a Marine,
to the merchant to that
person who has the Maulana or the shift parrikar whoever you want to call him. Really, you have to be hopeless, they edit something very interesting. You have to be like a dead body.
In the hands of somebody watching him. You can ask why.
For you to get that knowledge.
You tell me Does this make any sense to you?
to begin with?
When Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the hadith of Raja who
will hack him what met What about Waterbury?
To Komal Mahajan, Hill bike
I left it for you Muslims like a clear, crystal clear. What is the word you're playing?
It is light like it's the
what you see at night is exactly what you see during the day. This is the meaning that you walk in a Harrier. There is no such thing called hidden knowledge. What are you getting this from?
when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood up on the mountain of alpha
at level two Laughlin, Deena calm.
Today I completed the religion for you.
So where are you getting this from?
And why are you doing this? You're creating a parallel religion to Islam.
The Quran haqiqa the true essence of Islam. But what you guys follow is called the Sharia. This is for you.
But the people who are hockey, the people who have access to that secret knowledge,
they are different.
So what they're trying to do,
here is the dangerous and and I'm not going when I say about it. I'm not saying about the de Sala or beta. No, I'm talking about that brand of VEDA which strike right in your belief system. What they are trying to say?
What is their ideology?
They are trying to bring the goal of being one with God.
One with a law.
What do you mean by one with Allah?
They call it the hat.
That will do.
That is why some of those scholars By the way, allege his name.
He said am Allah because Allah is here.
And when when did they get this is a Christian myth. But it all originated from the Greek philosophy.
There is a little booklet for Plato of Latin called the network or the symposium that's the name in English. What is he saying? He is saying you have a part of God inside you. Look at this now blasphemous. You have a part of Allah inside you. And this flesh
is covering that part. You're healing
Want to bring out this godly divine out?
That's where they get this stuff.
But are we part of Allah
and they use what takes that can be taken out of context. Allah says that, and I breathe, we breathe, but they never read the Hadith that the one who breathed in us is an angel, not Allah subhanaw taala Yes, Allah breathed in Adam, because of his status. But you and me as a Muslim, and Angel Devitt.
We believe as Muslims, that some of us may have to go to Hill for a while, you want to tell me that piece of allies. So it opens the door for what?
So this is where they got this stuff
from the culture,
culture that is not Islam that is not Muslims, and they promote this. And they talk about we'll
listen, Sufism, the way it started, there is nothing wrong with it. It is just another name for Islam, that you give up this world. you detach yourself from this world, you strive to be a good Muslim, you you're not interested too much in the luxury of this world.
But just call it Islam is just another name for Islam. But that type is a dangerous type. Why? Because it opens the door for this, it opens the door for the stuff that certain people can attain this rank. And they call themselves saints Alia
Alia and as a result of this, the people would call upon them with invoke them beside Allah Subhana, Allah God, that you will go and touch them. You see,
this Christian tradition, which was exercised in my village is really competing with the Sufi tradition that you have a Sufi shake, buried beneath the ground, then you go and you call upon the shade. You call upon him, yeah, and fees, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada.
It's the same exact thing. It's parallel to it. And again, brothers and sisters in Islam. This has nothing to do with Islam. But again, it feeds that cultural Islam and it complement in a negative way. The Division in the oma and when people speak about it.
Oh, you're not calling for unity. What do you mean? Those people are calling for sure.
They are calling you to go through intermediary between you and Allah. Imagine for you to call on a law. You have to go through that person who is buried in the ground.
Imagine this blocking the way for Allah. You see, Islam the Islamic culture calls upon you to connect directly with Allah
levees they want you to go through up
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa will humble Hassan, what Sunnah
was shadow Allah, Allah Allah ma wahoo la sharika yaku. haka Wah,
wah shadow Mohammedan. Abu Salah LaValle. He was hired he was working
in Isla de.
Does this mean that we don't have Aurelia?

We have wilaya in Islam.
But our Lee
is someone who is righteous. Can you imagine? One day on top
was delivering the hope bar like this.
And in the middle of your speech,
And then you continue to hope.
He called upon someone. His name is Surya. And he said to him, go up to the Mount.
The Muslims, what does this
say Syria was leaving an army in Virginia, in a place called New Holland.
And he's been trying to break through. He's in a valley and the army is hiding behind the mountain.
He said when he returned from the trip from that battle, victorious, he said, by all the sudden I heard a voice calling upon me, yes, seek them out to the mound.
go up the mountain and you will find them.
We went up there.
And we found them and we taken care of it.
Now, what would you make our former here?
What would you make out of the Muslims worship?
Go through oma.
Some people, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah, give them a lot of nice subhanaw taala. Allah subhanaw taala may give them karma, silver natural thing.
But this does not mean that you give them that status that you go and touch them and you create that mysticism in Islam.
And you forget something, and I want to close with this.
Imagine this, there is a guy out there
who will come walking in the face of this earth
and he will command the earth
will turn into green.
So what does he want from you?
He wants you to believe that He is Allah who's helping him.
jinn are helping him.
That's the nature of the test brothers.
The scholars chef, he said this in particular chef he said, Lola
If you see a man walking
and he flies with wings, does he follow the plan and swim? No, not? Not xindi?
I mean, I've heard a lot of stories. This guy one of the brothers told me that Kareem there is a lady in the next village. I don't know what's going on. Anyway, I tell you this, there is a whole scheming out there. If you go out these are, the people are losing it. Who can cure you? Without anything without opening your stomach or anything? I love some surgeons will say come on. That's what they are telling me. So you would come to her. Okay, you have something here in a demo, whatever it is, and Okay, one second cute. Go.
Okay, that's fine. I mean, if she has a comma, then she should invite the people to believe in Allah. I asked him, Go and ask her.
Who does this?
If she tells you a law and you have to believe in Allah, for this to happen, this is the good lady. This is a kurama if she doesn't disclose this, she is trying to lead you to cook. She's trying to take you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
You know, there was this little boy.
The whole country wanted to turn him into one of those people who take away people from tauheed to sorcery.
But Subhan Allah Allah decreed that he is to get introduced to Tao he.
So one day, Allah placed him in a situation where he has to choose between hate or sorcery, calling people to cough, calling people
or calling people to Islam.
Finally he decided that I will call people to hate.
The word got around that he can cure anybody.
The first person who came to him jelly swill Malik,
who used to be blind, he brought with him gold and silver and money cash. He said Listen, man, we're gonna look at agma and unterscheiden
