Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam Allahu alayhi wa sallam early he was heavy he was well, he will never whatever bound

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

was Salam aleykum refer to lying or catching my dear brothers and sisters in slang. My dear brothers and sisters, I

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

don't make any claims of sophisticated scholasticism. I don't make any claims of

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


00:00:31--> 00:00:39

religiosity, I don't make any claims of suffocation from any particular body,

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

ecclesiastical, theological or epistemological body of Muslim scholars.

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

I am a

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


00:00:57--> 00:00:58


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


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


00:01:06--> 00:01:32

And that means that I don't simply proclaim Islam. But to the best of my ability, I tried to implement it in my life and into society for the benefit of myself, the improvement of myself for the betterment of my family, my neighborhood, my society. And, ultimately, because I believe that Islam is the better way for the benefit, and elevation of humanity.

00:01:34--> 00:01:35

Having said that,

00:01:37--> 00:01:44

I have an observation that I'd like to share with you. And in this observation, you may not agree,

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

you may feel a bit

00:01:48--> 00:01:49


00:01:51--> 00:01:52

You may

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

be tempted to react,

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

I would

00:01:59--> 00:01:59


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


00:02:03--> 00:02:07

I would invite your constructive

00:02:09--> 00:02:11

response or insight.

00:02:12--> 00:02:16

And I would caution against

00:02:18--> 00:02:19


00:02:20--> 00:02:24

until you hear thoroughly what I have to say.

00:02:25--> 00:02:30

Subject that we're going to discuss that I will proposal put forward today.

00:02:31--> 00:02:37

In the beginning, it may be a bit difficult for you to understand because perhaps you didn't consider this.

00:02:38--> 00:02:39

Like many of us.

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

We wouldn't know

00:02:45--> 00:02:53

what the back of our head looks like. We wouldn't know what our back would look like if there wasn't a mirror or somebody that could tell us that.

00:02:55--> 00:03:09

Even though it's a part of our body, our anatomy, and things are part of our lives, but we just don't know it because we're looking at it only from a personal point of view, or a limited point of view.

00:03:10--> 00:03:15

My discussion today, my topic today is called the Catholicism

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

of Islam

00:03:21--> 00:03:22


00:03:25--> 00:03:30

and indoctrination or dominance and repression.

00:03:32--> 00:03:41

Another way to say it could be indoctrination, and repression. Those are all some of the subtitles of my discussion.

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

To better understand our topic, my dear brothers and sisters, we need to read

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

one of the definitions of Catholicism.

00:03:54--> 00:04:02

Because I'm using the definition, I'm using the definition, the general definition of Catholicism, to me what is happening

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

with Muslims, what's happening regarding the presentation of Islam? What is happening with the message of Islam in regards to or in the hands of people who have power and influence.

00:04:24--> 00:04:31

Now studying the evolution of the end and comparing what happened to Christianity

00:04:33--> 00:04:46

that is the life and the message of Jesus Christ and the early Christians. The Life and the message of Jesus Christ peace be upon him and his early followers

00:04:52--> 00:04:53

and the relationship

00:04:54--> 00:04:57

of Catholicism to that phenomenon

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

The relationship of Catholicism to that phenomena,

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

that historical phenomena

00:05:08--> 00:05:09

of what's happened

00:05:11--> 00:05:17

to the life and the message of Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary, please do point him in his mother.

00:05:20--> 00:05:21

And those early followers

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

who were

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

strong and loyal to his message,

00:05:31--> 00:05:34

what happened in regards to the

00:05:35--> 00:05:37

Catholicism of Christianity?

00:05:38--> 00:05:47

When we study that, we can see that another pattern, another social, political, religious pattern

00:05:48--> 00:05:53

has taken place regarding the Muslims and the message of Islam.

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

Now studying the evolution of the

00:06:01--> 00:06:05

Christian church, also known as the church of Rome.

00:06:08--> 00:06:17

And the significance and the scope of both power and influence within the Vatican, the seat of papel authority,

00:06:18--> 00:06:22

we see the following expressions of religious elitism.

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


00:06:25--> 00:06:29

using the resources of the state,

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

the people

00:06:32--> 00:06:35

to gain absolute economic dominance.

00:06:39--> 00:06:39

Number two,

00:06:41--> 00:06:47

the creation of a pernicious religious doctrine of control.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

Number three,

00:06:52--> 00:06:53

creating the myth

00:06:55--> 00:06:58

of a divine papacy

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

that is someone chosen and approved by God to have authority.

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

Number four,

00:07:12--> 00:07:20

controlling the priests and the Cardinals and regulating its religious constituency, through the control

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

of the religious narrative.

00:07:25--> 00:07:26

Number five,

00:07:27--> 00:07:31

cultivating the idea of the absolute immunity

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

of the pope

00:07:37--> 00:07:38

and his church

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

and his clergy

00:07:44--> 00:07:44

from fault,

00:07:46--> 00:07:47


00:07:48--> 00:07:49

or accountability.

00:07:51--> 00:08:08

Now, these are the chief characteristics of the the Catholic principle as has been exhibited through the history and the evolution of the Catholic Church.

00:08:11--> 00:08:15

This is a study of this, as we can see from the study of history

00:08:18--> 00:08:21

the Christian elitism and supremacy

00:08:24--> 00:08:28

reveals many blatant manifestations and alignment

00:08:31--> 00:08:32


00:08:33--> 00:08:35


00:08:36--> 00:08:37

of elitism

00:08:39--> 00:08:44

and alignment to oppression and repression

00:08:46--> 00:08:53

of organized Christianity. Now, I want at this point to justify my terminology

00:08:55--> 00:09:03

of have a socio political and religious campaign to compile the size the Muslims.

00:09:06--> 00:09:12

Let us simply change the titles and the references with Islamic sounding terminologies.

00:09:14--> 00:09:16

Let's change the words

00:09:17--> 00:09:22

from Catholicism to universal regulation

00:09:23--> 00:09:29

from papacy to absolute monarchy or authoritarian terian. ISM,

00:09:30--> 00:09:33

monarchy or authoritarianism

00:09:35--> 00:09:36

from Vatican

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

to the religious scholars appointed by the political authority

00:09:43--> 00:09:52

from the Nicene Creed to official documents and proclamations or rulings of the scholars.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

Let's change the word religious repression and political oppression

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

To ideological isolation and annihilation of opposition.

00:10:08--> 00:10:24

Let's change the word economic power of the church, the term economic power of the church to the absolute control of the natural resources through capitulation and acquiescence of the scholars.

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

In summary,

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

my dear brothers and sisters,

00:10:33--> 00:10:36

in a world of 1.7 billion Muslims,

00:10:38--> 00:10:43

we can see that there has been a gradual and thorough indoctrination

00:10:45--> 00:11:00

through a religious narrative, or epistemology, which regulates and cultivates a preferred demeanor, a preferred mentality, which tolerates political repression,

00:11:01--> 00:11:14

social oppression, moral deviation, economic disparity, religious contradiction, and a very clear and blatant social and political elitism.

00:11:15--> 00:11:32

This is what I am referring to, when I use the terminology and the freeze the Catholicism of the Muslim world, or the Catholicism of Islam, dominance through indoctrination, or indoctrination and repression.

00:11:33--> 00:11:35

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:11:37--> 00:11:43

I don't claim to be an authority in anything.

00:11:44--> 00:11:45

In summary,

00:11:46--> 00:11:51

I want to say I don't make a claim to be an authority in the religion. I am just a

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

African American,

00:11:55--> 00:11:59

Muslim, senior social activists

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

who is concerned about

00:12:03--> 00:12:08

the mission of Islam as opposed to the condition of the Muslims.

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

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:12:15--> 00:12:45

we asked Allah subhanaw taala to give us the guidance. We asked Allah subhanaw taala to protect us in our endeavors. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to strengthen the Ummah, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to strengthen its leadership. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to clarify the Islamic message. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to clear the roads of the obstructions

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

in the field of Dawa

00:12:48--> 00:13:00

and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to allow us to make our Islam relevant in the societies where we live. We say Subhanak long will be hunting. When I said you

00:13:01--> 00:13:01


00:13:02--> 00:13:09

want to stop for a corner to Blake was salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
