For coming up with great lecture and lectures,
and to all of you who came up to the booth and
integrate all four for all you people who are interested in future events or want to know more about the NFA, or even have more questions about Islam, don't hesitate to contact us at NSA execs at Yahoo groups.com, or visit our website, which is www.nfa.com.
Muslim, he was
part of the process of discussion and dialogue, that will be beneficial for all of us.
Don't hesitate to and shout it out.
If you have any more questions,
then we'll be done.
new form, what
is real form, as it says, of form is
a creation that covers the heaven, like the east to the west, that isn't real. And so a lot he couldn't have
done something like that.
But a lot of it come in the form of a map. And then after that, when you came out of the cave,
in the years to come after the Prophet
a class I did on on this exact topic called, like the history of the history of the political leaders that took on the leadership of the property plant and passed away. They were like mainstays, he has the state of tribes that have basically like, stated, and went to war with them.
And so the issue was about leadership and who is going to be like hanging in the jungle or thing in the desert. And it was a, it was a battle amongst the artists of authority, until Mecca, Medina, applied, the new mentioned doesn't like critical places. And then on top of the place in different parts of the
second stage, was, that was the way
like it, if you have a question after the person, you're welcome to come up and ask me after the show, you don't get my question down here, involved as a brother.
So that was like that was one stage. And then they solidify the Arabian Peninsula. After that you have
the Roman Empire and had the Persian Empire, and then the battles between them. And so on one, on one level, the battles were political in the sense that it's either they attack us or we attack them, but authority has to be established. And now the office on the other point is that it's not even just about policy, but it's about passing on the message to those human beings and those different countries. And so, the next stage was the conquest of Iraq, the conquest of a sham right into that house, those areas, you had the conquest of North Africa, and all these places had become Muslim. During those years after that. Then the third stage after that there was
some fights happen between Muslims themselves. And then from there and
up and down.
Before the internal fight happened, there was a period of like total Renaissance for the Muslims or new wealth were coming in on
everything was going awesome and great. And so you just see, like human beings, it says, For all of us, our lives electrofusion right. You have the season of summer where everything is possible, right.
Spending, you're having fun. And right in the middle of your plot, boom, something super bad blossom. And winter comes upon, right? winter comes upon the teacher painful. And you're like, Oh my god, how am I going to do this.
And then winter comes, and it will stay in winter until you start saying, look, I need to get out of this, I need to start planting new seeds in spring.
So you planted seeds and you start doing something else. And you go back and try to do another degree, right? That didn't work out, you're trying to do
the piling up. After you start planting a seed, you realize there's no jobs available for
the summer. Right, there's
actually the summer that are possible fall, that's what I meant.
By fall is where you're reaping the harvest. Summer is the is the season of no results.
When blood and tears, like going through that summer, and then you keep going through you think it's not working, think it's not working, and then all of a sudden fall on the planet.
And you reap the harvest, and everything's going really hard, and then something will happen.
And then winter comes upon, you get what I'm saying. So even in most of history, human beings, right. And all human beings, regardless of everybody here will see those seasons in life, they might be shorter. With some people, they might be longer, you might have been in winter for the last like 10 years of your life. Or definitely you are in winter, now your
humans fluctuate and how long they've
been in human all of that.
So when we talk about from history, even
like in modern history, it's painful. To hear
the truth, you're like, dang.
And then you think that the world is difficult, pretty and nice, and everybody does the right thing. Humans are human, the perfection is to Obama's message. Right? human beings, on the other hand, are not perfect. And so they make a mistake, and they make their default. The key is not being perfect. The key is how I keep living a life of coming closer to God, and repenting and turning back to God when I slip and fall, and that the righteous person, not the person that didn't make a mistake, but the person that gets the quarter when they fall.
But before the call was revealed
before they can,
or before you receive revelation, what religion was
the religion in the Arabian Peninsula.
You have people who are Christian, right now, there are people who are Christian, you also have Jews, or Jews, and but people of Mecca. Typically, there was a time in their history, or one of the teams that got off in some other areas and found people were worshipping an idol. And he's like, this major buff.
So he brought the idol back to Mecca, and commanded the people to worship the island. And he started telling our tribe, he would say to them, you have to take your items from the rocks of Mecca, and he established idols and each tribe in the Kava would now have no idols, but at that time, had overthrown and
propagated properly propagated. And it wasn't a religious of religious scripture, they knew that it was a religion that just came on to the either worshipping with the data. And so
people have a book that says the Judeo Christian actually received revelation. And it might have been aggregated with all these points, versus someone who made it up from the very beginning, which are the machines, they didn't know and believe in God. They believe in God, the only issue is that they associate partners to God. And so they also understood the religion of Abraham, Abraham upon him.
It was known as the religion of Abraham, which is like they just wouldn't wish they would just worship God. But it would just be a place for trusting God and that was it.
Others involve themselves in the vices like an evil other people have mentioned it was very their baby girl, or you know, the alcohol, there are
different things that they would do. They weren't involved in that. And
it's actually in the in the history book that someone had actually said that, you know what, I don't know the details of a phenomenon the religion.
He didn't worship any department.
So they believed in God and when he received revelations, and now all the details
When faced with difficulties such as a crisis,
what can we do to minimize incidences?
the sermon on Friday,
he's actually been talking about the cartoon
that talks about the cartoons.
And then the call to action.
What to do about
And so the key is not to be emotional.
Need your mind and the brain
develops embarrassing things that a Muslim would like to see the guy with the math, he's got a gun.
A lot of people love to do that. That's just the image that they bring on TV. And they know.
That's the one that everybody like, that's the one that was huge on the media. And I think in a different process around the world, there's like a protest going on.
there, like, what did you bring any guy?
And they're like, no, there's multiple. There's multiple rallies happening around the world. And multiple, you know, you just have different political parties are just like, jump on the bandwagon. This is our chance to throw grenades in Iran. Right. And you will see that, you know, it starts off with cartoons, and then it goes to the government. And then it goes to, like Washington, and Washington, rallies every week, even during the week.
Like what everybody's walking, and sometimes, like, you know, how you try to reserve a room? And most people do want to stay in the room. Right? What do you do? You say, like, hey, let's all get in the room together. And everybody's talking about what they want to talk about. And we'll just call it a bigger house.
And so everybody's coming to the different regions in the world trading Federation, because you're coming to the party, and someone's coming for, you know, in South America and stuff like Devin and walking together. And there's just a confusion of what the value is. So a lot of that's something to keep in perspective, that all that what you're seeing is not necessarily just cartoons,
but it possibly could as well.
Now, the question is what
I said in the lecture earlier, developers have this inherent need,
but they have
to move when they're faced with pain.
Right when they're faced with pain, problem for Canadians, and there's not too much pain happening.
Right? People aren't moving in.
One of the things that I like about
what I like about the American is that super passionate,
like they don't.
earlier I say for example, who thinks that Canadians are smarter than Americans, right?
Go for it. Go for the run. Right? This is the racism
smarter than all Americans. We all know that.
We have more money than
all the companies the fortune 500 companies are American. So obviously you have to be open
benefits and stuff like that. But don't be a big corporation backplate on your assets, right. So
the record, Mark, but when they do something, you're passionate about it until you see the big corporations work and you need that type of movement in our community.
The key there is to work during times of pleasure or the good times. And so the question that I will say, How can we
minimize incidents in the future, stop waiting for something painful happens when you can move, and instead, move during the good times
during the good times. So if you find that there's no problem, and everybody on campus is happy with
and moving and people are like, you're pretty cool, I think back to Canada,
like fob Fresh Off the Boat from America.
And I blew them away.
Like, I'm still crazy, and
jumping around and I.
in order to do it, again, the main benefit that we learned from this is, take advantage of the good times, and not
during the hard times. When you do your investments during the good times around, you'll find that all people that need to educate about it. They're the ones who are now defending, they're the ones who understand it is not the
way it is now they don't know. And so they're like, how do we know
that I thought,
whatever it is, they're confused, because we never did anything for them.
That about bagni images of costs, and
then other profits like
it that's interesting that
you get upset about.
If, for example, if for example, we walk in here, and there was a painting of Jesus, it could be extremely effective,
extremely effective. In fact,
we would cover it up.
In fact, people that afterwards, someone would say, are we even allowed printing the same room with a picture.
It's extremely, extremely authentic. And pictures of
too many people make pictures.
But they're definitely
extremely level they are very offended.
He is foremost, the prophet. In fact, the companions of the Prophet, if someone wants to say this is a portrait of
extremely offensive, if someone came out and said, Hey, you know what, I want to educate Muslim children in cartoons. And it's gonna be a cartoon that actually pieces the story in a good light. That would be
the policies department, when you call them, the people that came before
people, that whenever a right man amongst them died, they would make these things. And they make these pictures of
Because these are the most evil people on the Day of Resurrection. Because those paintings in those pictures, they need people to worship other than God. And it's, it's that path of
associating partners and God ultimate
is associated with God. Now, with regards to pictures,
you have different types of pictures, there's the picture of an idol, a three dimensional picture, which is completely prevented, completely prevented an example
right, they have a fourth person night nine.
is like the shape of a board. And that's like
to have like a test piece like
a three dimensional form. And you know, it's just like sitting there, it's extremely offensive
at the highest level of effect that can have which
is hand drawn pictures,
pictures that are done by hand.
And so if someone's going to page a Muslim painter, what you'll find in Muslim art, is calligraphy. For the most part.
Beautiful lettering right? Beautiful leather
rivers and streams and forests and mountains. If you don't do grandma around the world, you will just be on the wall. Amazing.
Whatever they call them, right, whatever, and they design amazing patterns.
But there's no pictures.
There's no pictures in them. And so they develop their part without pictures. Right? So the net for the first level of offensive, the second one is the hand drawn. So in Muslim countries, even sometimes we have the king of the president of sauce, he'll have someone painted a picture on the bill of the country. Muslims know that, right? Even in like
drawing pictures of their monarch.
And that's something that's extremely offensive. In fact, most of my name is say, can I even pray with this bill in my pocket, which is a question that we get like that.
But if you don't make it.
Now, the third level is photographic pictures.
And they're making images of one another, if you have digital images and photographic images, it's a difference of opinion. Because photographic images didn't exist at the time of the problem.
Looking at how to
study, you have solid, you have the debate and so forth. What is a digital picture most resembling,
for one person, a digital picture resembles
drawing a picture by hand.
Of course, if you're forced to do either be done by hand, or you're done with a picture, right? So one person will say painting a picture is very similar to drawing by hand, and therefore it's forbidden.
In some countries, don't take pictures. And they'll cross it up with like a black marker of a whole bunch of permanent black marker pens in my house. And if I bring a book in the in the house, and
most of the author on the back, like for me, there's no purpose for that.
And I'll take my black, my black market now talks about so that we don't have
even like a digital picture that's not even, like hand drawn. And even when we're for our daughter, when we're teaching her things from books, we'll take like little white picture, and stick it on the faces are
still learning and benefiting from a book. But she doesn't have to look at these, you know, hand drawn pictures, and so on and so forth. But not all of them do that, we think that that's one of the opinions regarding
the other thing instead of the digital fixture is similar to a reflection. So when you actually have a camera, it's reflecting the light,
reflecting the light, and so just like is permissible and non affected. Look in the mirror.
In America, I had no idea to have
to look at America at the time to have water, and you can look in the water. And
that's not intermission. And so some of the scholars will say that taking a digital picture photographic picture, is a reflection of life.
And so similar to
it's similar to
the reflection was a photographic picture similar to that, therefore.
And so the photograph, you have
to say that it's good.
It's not so good. This is like the middle line for myself and my family. So what I tell people is that you go back to the intention of the photographic picture, if the intention of the photographic picture is to glorify the subject. There's like I took this picture of a for example, a relative of rice
that I was put up on the wall and tell my daughters, you know, this is our great grandfather, I want you when you pass by,
then taking the intention of whether it was meant for and so therefore become become impermissible.
If the intention of the picture is presented for educational purposes, even on state all about pictures are probably better photographs.
I have my own funeral is about this day. And when I go for the annual pilgrimage, because people don't like the picture taken which is really
Far away, but I haven't Doom less than no idea they're having to
do find some guys that
want to get the green
light, or something like that. Right? I have no idea. After I've taken all those things, and I have my album, you know, Jerusalem, I have Mecca, I have Jordan, Petra, different civilizations.
Everything that I know of a human being was with intention to educate
while I'm taking pictures.
And I know scanning my mind looking at what's the purpose of
that picture? And so therefore I find
the camera, right? And so that's what.
But again, the bottom line is,
what should our
we do, if you saw it, in the lecture is nothing new. When someone doesn't understand something, they must correct.
From their lack of understanding, I remember, there's like a movie back in a long time ago. And the guy was, he being a surgeon. And he's like, you know, the guys that had an operation, going up to the chest, something like that. And the guy's like, you're in the wrong part of the body.
The other part of his body, but just like that, we mock what we don't understand. If someone doesn't understand something, they will be courageous enough to express their lack of understanding.
Like, for example, my sister's, you know, she colored my blood. And we grew up in a town
where we were the only black kids and stuff like that, and even like,
relatively white in comparison to me, excuse me a black.
And so don't talk about like white Canada.
So we get comments all the time, all the time, the call to action.
So they think like, oh, Ninja lady.
I remember when we were little kids that me and my sister would be walking through the mall. And someone shout out, hey, go back to Iran or something like that.
That's the thing. I remember leaving me to walk away talk to those people who would say that, and obviously they're not very, they're not very defensive of the statement, the police said at that point, their face, they're turning red and going like this and stuff like that. And then based on that to the guy,
someone says something offensive.
Be creative enough to not turn your back on them, and courageous enough to not do to their level.
That critical point, because there's no point in using vulgarity and offensive back to them, you might be justified in
responding with exactly what they did. However, it's
our opportunity or an opportunity to invite
come up to them and he
can read at that point. And
their heart will be very fast. And now as the hearts come down and stuff like that, you're now able to pick
A lot of
that takes a lot of courage, but your opportunity with people of offense of attack, to show your higher ground, show and highlight, the more.
That doesn't mean that it continues on
forever. It just means that I think
that like, polite and assertive. Right? You're polite about the issue, but at the same time, you're assertive about what
wasn't the messenger, then why did God put so much pain? And what reward?
That's really beautiful question, why do people go through pain?
What's the purpose of pain? Remember what I said earlier about
how people they only learn
when in massive pain, they made a decision that could possibly take them in the wrong direction. Like, some back pain might happen to someone, and then they might become racist after that, or massive pain could happen to someone, and they make a decision about life that will forever serve them. I failed.
I failed one course of study in university.
And I was set back in my schooling, there was so much pain involved in that, that I took out my journal and I wrote down my notes from, you know, basically filming, what was what was racing through my mind. And I will sit back and googling what I wrote down in my journal. And my wife will say that piece of paper, I wrote down, so long as I've benefited.
From the extra time I've been given to study that I haven't failed, so long as I've learned from it, and it makes me stronger than there's no such thing.
And I was giving a lecture in Ottawa like, for those you might know a little bit about, you guys say like a little purple fire.
and stuff like that. It's an institute that I started a moment, in the last few years to become the biggest institution in the US and Canada. And our class in Toronto, this weekend has almost 400 students
in a class where other
and we're teaching like it's on a university level, we have 400 people in our class, it is the busiest Institute in North America the most. And we keep talking about 15 cities across the US and Canada. I thought to myself, someone said, What's the secret? How did you do this?
And I was thinking about it. And I said, You know what, your third reason I did this and how I got into trouble was
it's because of awkward pain when I was in university. And I failed the course.
And from there, I learned that nothing in life would happen to me. This is my analogy. If you ever want me to get stronger thrown off.
Because you can stop. Like that's American stuff.
You put it off the table, you will only make me stronger, something like anything that doesn't kill
But it's just an obstacle. And then I see my action isn't good enough. I need to work harder. So I'll try doing an action. And it's not, it's not excessive, I get blocked. And I said, it's not good enough. I have to do something that I'll do, for example, a graphic design a poster, and then my computer crashes. I don't get that. I said I'll crash my computer. Because the junky poster.
A lot took it away from me so that I would do better than that. I had a an auto company that took me about three years to watch that
picture that was no, she's worked very closely with me in taking off that project like a stager. The reason a lot has allowed us to go forward with this company, because it's not good enough. And so we have to be better than
making images better and better and better and better. Audio, if you look at all the other audio companies are is one of the finest graphic design company. It's one of the finest products
and other companies but it's more pointed out and I said that if a lot of this made it easy for us to just keep off the company from the beginning, then we wouldn't have a good product would be some ugly competitor.
And you know,
everybody's putting them around, and then it's getting lost. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
Now, the question is, why should someone do so much pain? The answer is that paradise isn't a perfect paradise.
paradise, everyone knows that the closer person comes to a buck, the greater the profit has the highest, because they have the highest reward. And so as you're trying to come to a loss, you're actually going to intensify, you'll be tested with more with more with more doesn't mean that you do the constant test. It just means when the tests come, they'll come heavy, and they'll come very tough, and then it's an opportunity to become stronger.
five point about that issue, I talked about pain and pleasure. The reason I'm speaking about why stone boy could benefit from the pleasure is because I learned from that, that remember, I could throw it off. And I'll go higher, there came a time when nobody was going to obstacle that
everybody was like, you know, you're the boss,
do whatever you want.
And then I found myself getting weaker. because no one's throwing obstacles, there's nothing to stop me,
or whatever it is. And so I feel like I'm not benefiting from a good time. I'm only setting up my life to benefit from the heart, when it should benefit from a good time and from the heart. But I find that my mind
has been like a training of benefiting from it.
the message? Are there any
there's actually there are different states in the
US, there were some
revelations by someone. And it would come in the form of a dream, that this prophet Abraham, when he received revelation, that he should like father,
and that was the dream that the prophets knew that this is something true, another way that the message will come, I do say sometimes we come out with like the ringing of a bell off contract. And some other times, he would like get into a, I don't like
that kind of life.
And his body would become extremely heavy, one of the good things
on his way, and he was receiving revelation, and my label
from the pressure that was coming down. And so some of the easiest way for the revelations that was it
came in the form of a man and, and revealed him like that, but it was revealed in those other ways. There's like a form of profit.
But there was no revelation.
They want to know when revelation will come
to this wonderful lecture,
I would like to ask you the possibility to hear the rest of life from you possibly not validated with some kind of media and media available or some other
II started feature classes and kind of a mixture between University classes and like business seminars. So our classes are short, was extremely compact, and give you more return on investment into something that goes on and on and on for like semesters.
So one of the classes that is coming up in this year of a profit,
the life of the Prophet is going to be taught by the version that he is going to be taught to kick off by
Houston and inshallah is going to be different
because there is a class like that coming up, you can look up a mug of Instituto Coronavirus
and set up a website. And if you were interested in a class of coming, it'll either be myself or one of our teachers.
On behalf of the coalition I like to find
insightful and entertaining.
Thank you all for coming.
