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

Today, as many of you may have been anticipating, I was planning on showing you some videos of some of the

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

the leaders of certain Sufi 30 plus here in the United States,

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

but I opted not to

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

today, because there's a

00:00:36--> 00:00:44

there's a better place camp, which will contextualize it better coming in the book. Another point is that we're not here to study to soul.

00:00:45--> 00:00:51

We're here to study how to be better worshipers of a lost parents at it and the talk

00:00:52--> 00:00:54

and shape of this land is bringing about

00:00:55--> 00:01:06

those would tribute themselves to a soldier because not all of them are accepted by the Sophie's themselves. These names that you'll see thrown out

00:01:07--> 00:01:11

they really have no relationship to Islam or at second this thing.

00:01:12--> 00:01:26

And as I mentioned, to Seoul for Sufism is a very broad term. And there are some that had been attributed Gani, revisionist history has claimed that they are,

00:01:27--> 00:01:32

you know, from the, with the Soviet visa, they really meant

00:01:34--> 00:01:39

as Sufism during its formative period, which was, you know, in the

00:01:40--> 00:02:28

sixth century of Islam, when it started to actually form in the in the manner that we know it today, which is where they have the polygon. And they actually have a path that one follows, led by a shape. And that was more like six centuries on, which is why you find shapes and TV and I was born in the seventh century, why this is such a prominent part of his book, because he has to address this in a way that it wasn't addressed by those before. And the same way that you won't see scholars from four or 500 years ago addressing the aquabion, because there just wasn't something that existed at the time. So the scholars who come at that particular time have to address those innovations that

00:02:28--> 00:02:29

happened during the time.

00:02:31--> 00:02:40

As many of you know, here in Philadelphia, we have many, you know, practitioners or even massages that are Sufi Masonic.

00:02:42--> 00:03:05

And because of that, it is important for a person to know how to practice the theme, that doesn't mean that a person is attacking them, bashing them or otherwise, but the meaning of a loss of data is one that has to be clarified. And let those who want to follow, you know, what they believe is the truth because that's what they're gonna be asked about by lots of hands on. So

00:03:06--> 00:03:16

it is important for us when we get to that point, to have an idea of, you know, who they are, and what their beliefs are, and so forth.

00:03:18--> 00:04:08

The refi for example, which is a very famous study abroad study, which has other interesting thing about all of these 30 inputs is that over time, even they themselves begin to break up into smaller, you know, sex and that's normally what happens with benign at the end of the day is that a person's innovation will lead them to have an allegiance, or disavow because of that, and then it'll create another splinter group and so forth. All of them coming from the main group. So the bash or the heavy machines, which they prefer NASA be called the AI CP, which is the Association of Islamic charitable projects on 45th and walnut. They are refactoring and all of the all of the heavy

00:04:08--> 00:04:14

machines throughout the world, but that's, you know, their leader started off as T Gen.

00:04:16--> 00:04:36

And then he left the TNA went to Mecca, he became Natasha bendy, and he made tech fear at Janney. And then he went to Lebanon and that's where he became infatti. And then he traveled to Australia, in Europe and America and so forth, and began to set up their, their group, the the bench.

00:04:37--> 00:04:59

So, here in Philadelphia, you probably eat at their store sides and whatever the other one is called. This is the their own by they owned by the heavy machines who are who follow different things and nakida their shiny and two souls very fatty and men have been chatting and today

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

So they exist in overbrook. We have the baggy, I mean,

00:05:10--> 00:05:15

really valid up, but they say that how they pronounce it, he

00:05:17--> 00:05:35

hired me. You been up, who was a Bengali, you know, Sufi or Sri Lankan Sufi, Sri Lankan. And he came here and he established his party and the fellowship. So many of those who are in the fellowship don't even consider themselves to be Muslim.

00:05:36--> 00:06:20

Comes in Makkah, we don't, but they themselves don't consider themselves to be Muslim. But for the ones that are Muslim, they are following the and following his 30. So it's important for us to understand what this 35 mean, what it means to have a 33rd because it's all related to what we talked about last week, where you haven't shown yet until tomika. And then I think, and then after that, is married, and we again, when when asked about when it becomes appropriate to visit that again, in his book, we will inshallah, but we need to work through the material because there's, there's a strategic way that the book is organized, so that we are constantly getting closer

00:06:21--> 00:06:31

to being true worshipers of Allah subhana wa Tada. And the whole point that this was brought up for in the book, like I said, was that she was saying that to me, I have a lot of wants to

00:06:32--> 00:06:51

define for us. We want to be true worshipers of Allah subhanho wa tada is a way to do that. And it was defined by the prophet sallallahu wasallam. And so we have to follow that way. If Teddy is as the as the alone time and who said

00:06:52--> 00:07:05

it tells you what not to tell you for a fee to follow and don't innovate because we have been surprised. I mean, that was the Prophet it was saying came with follow that way. And don't innovate new paths.
