Bismillah Alhamdulillah Salaam Alaikum peace be unto you. Welcome to the deen Show. I'm your host. Thank you for tuning in. We got a very, very important topic for you. So we need a good person to bring on to cover this. I'm gonna go get a wise man who was with us before it's a surprise sit tight and we'll be right back on the dean show.

00:00:23--> 00:00:54

Sure you Celeste this I found you again. Yeah, salaam aleikum. It comes down. Eddie, how are you doing? Good. hamdulillah what's the latest? I need you to come I got some good news. Tell me I need you to come back on the D show. Okay. Remember when we cover those were the topics about the Bible some things and you promised to come back for the unforgivable sin that we needed to clarify for the people what that was the unforgivable sin in the monotheistic religions. So that when you want to do it, I want to do it when you want to do that. Let's do it now. Now. Yes.

00:00:55--> 00:00:57

He

00:01:02--> 00:01:04

is His Messenger.

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

Only one. Jesus was his messenger.

00:01:23--> 00:01:36

Why did that maybe, maybe it's just to break the ice. Welcome back to the deen show. Your host and we're fortunate enough to find our good friend use of SS to come on again and tackle this very important topic chick. And I'm not able

00:01:37--> 00:02:18

to live. It's great to be back on the show. Thank you for being with us again. We got some serious business, you understand that? We got to cover a lot of topics we covered. Can God Be a man it's on the D show comm website. All of our shows, just to remind you, if you're not watching us live on the TV, you can tune into the deen show calm and see the previous shows that we had recorded with the shake and others. So we covered the Bible we covered can met God Be a man, which is absolutely not Can God have a son, which is absolutely not. And today we're covering the unforgivable sin. Okay, who wants you to help us tackle this topic? What is the unforgivable sin that God does not we know

00:02:18--> 00:02:30

he's the most Merciful, the most loving, he forgives all sorts of sins. But the one sin that is unforgivable, that if you die upon this, forget about it. It's a life sentence, and the hellfire. Scary.

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

That's what we want to educate?

00:02:33--> 00:03:11

Well, I think Eddie, where we want to start with is to say that there is such a thing as unforgivable sin, but it's usually referred to amongst the clerics and those who are in religion as blasphemy, blasphemy. And if you look blasphemy up in the dictionary, you'll find that it says it is to speak of God, or to or the deity in the irreverent or in pious manner. And now to revive God is to say something about him, or to him. That is

00:03:13--> 00:04:01

blasphemy that is wrong that's unforgivable. And what did they mean by that? Well, what I did I took the opportunity to investigate from the Jewish standpoint, want to start with a Jewish standpoint first, because it's the older of the monotheistic religions. And when we look to the book of Exodus chapter 20, and verse seven, is what we're going to find a key because you shall not make this a commandment is coming from Almighty God to Moses, Moses is conveying it to his followers, the children of Israel, he says, You shall not make the wrong use of the name of your Lord, your God, the Lord will not leave on punished the man who misuses his name. So what does that mean? Well, let

00:04:01--> 00:04:13

us look first of all, to the commandments in the same exact chapter, chapter 20. And we'll begin by saying the first commandment, Thou shalt not have any other gods beside God.

00:04:14--> 00:04:33

This is the first commandment. The second one says, Thou shalt not make unto God any graven image of anything that walks upon the earth swims in the sea beneath or swims, or flies in the air above. So that is going to be number two. Number three says, Thou shalt not take the Lord that God's name in vain.

00:04:35--> 00:05:00

And after that, it talks about keeping the Sabbath. And then after that, it talks about your parents taking care of your parents. Now, you get four commandments out of 10 dealing with the subject of what God expects from you and worship and for sure that this is not something small, that a person blasphemous, but if you notice, it's number three in the list of different

00:05:00--> 00:05:22

commandments, which is to say that if you take God's name in vain, or in a in a bad way, and to associate anything with God, like yourself, or that you would do anything which is Empire's or irreverent with God's named revile him by doing this, okay? Now,

00:05:24--> 00:05:31

if I understand correctly from the first two commandments that preceded This is even worse that you make partners with God,

00:05:33--> 00:05:42

that you would set up partners with God or make something that you can see or hold in your hand or feel or touch and you said, that was your God. Now,

00:05:43--> 00:06:29

there is something that you'll find in the book of Mark. And that's chapter 14, verse 62, through verse 64. And it's talking about the Sanhedrin, believing that Jesus was a human being, and they were calling him that they were saying he was trying to call himself by God's names. Okay, this is the accusation coming from the Sanhedrin Sanhedrin, where the Pharisees who were in charge of the temple at that time, they would be basically the clergy of the day, and see what they're coming up with is saying that, that Jesus was claiming to be God, and this is course blasphemy. And this is the allegation that the the Jewish synagogue had against Jesus. This is why they questioned him and

00:06:29--> 00:06:31

said, well, what's the greatest commandment?

00:06:32--> 00:06:50

And then he comes back to them. And in the chapter markets, number two, Chapter 12, verse 29, they're saying, What's the greatest commandment, and here's Jesus replying back them, and basically saying, the very thing that you find in the sixth chapter of

00:06:52--> 00:07:43

Deuteronomy, and he says, Here, a quote from there to know, oh, Israel, that your LORD your God is One Lord. And that you have to love Him with all your heart, and all your mind and all your strength. So that is clear. There is no option on this subject. So now we can we've just covered basically, the first two of the monotheistic religion, we find that the here's the blasphemy, which they're saying, basically, are you committing blasphemy? Are you calling yourself God or the Lord? And he's saying, No, I'm quoting right from your scripture, which says that God is One, the Lord your God is one, you have to know that, and him alone? Do you worship with all your heart, all your

00:07:43--> 00:08:03

mind, your strength? Now we can look at other verses in the New Testament and also find Jesus ordering them to keep the commandments? Well, if you're going to keep the commandments, obviously, you have to get to first, second and third commandments. You must not make partners with God, you cannot have other gods beside God.

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

So this is now where I think you can see how the Jewish

00:08:10--> 00:08:51

synagogue, the Jewish followers, and then those who were going to go off into Christianity when they come up with a trinity, couple 100 years after Jesus, he can see this big split getting further and further apart. Because the Jewish are going to say that there's no way we're gonna look at a trinity and consider that we're going to look only for the one God. So now we've kind of outlined a little bit I think of what's blasphemy, according to the Jewish religion, and blasphemy according to the Christian religion, what is that going to be? Well, you might be surprised that there is something here, but it's not exactly the same. Because in Revelations, this isn't the last book in the new in

00:08:51--> 00:09:30

the New Testament, Chapter 14. Now you'll go to look it up, verses nine through 11. And you'll see it says, a third angel followed them this is talking about a dream or a vision. And it says in the loud voice is saying, if anyone worships the beast, and his image, and receives his mark on the forehead or the hand, then he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God. That's a parable more or less, a phrase here to tell you drink of the wine of wrath means that you're going to suffer at the punishment of Almighty God, you're going to suffer His wrath, or an Arabic it's called.

00:09:31--> 00:09:59

It said, which is poured out full strength into the cup of his indignation. He shall be tormented with fire, brimstone, in the presence of the Holy Angels, and in the presence of the lamb and they use lamb here to represent Jesus. This is an unknown substitute here is to say that Jesus is the lamp, and the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever and they have no read.

00:10:00--> 00:10:18

They are night, those who worship the beast his image, and whoever takes the mark and his name. So this is the blasphemy here now in the New Testament, we find that this is a blasphemy and in other places in New Testament, they say it's the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. You know,

00:10:19--> 00:11:02

this is the teaching for the Christianity. This is what I remember very well about blaspheming against the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit. Yeah, because you were a former Christian minister. Well, my dad was the minister, I was just a preacher drudge, okay. Because I did not spend near the time that my father did. My father had the whole entire Bible by the time he was 10 years old, and had recited it. And, of course, didn't memorize it. By the way, he also had accepted Islam, correct? He did after I did, okay. And it didn't come real easy for him. To hear this story. Also, you can see it on our website, the deen, show calm, we have that whole story of his father and his whole family

00:11:02--> 00:11:49

coming to Islam. So continue on, please. Well, I was trying to make a point here that there is bad blasphemy in Judaism, which is clearly taking God's name in vain. That's the one that we're referring to. And then the amplification that we find was in verse 17, of chapter 20. And talking about what it meant, and what would be the penalty, it's unforgivable, that anybody irritate God, by being irreverent with his name, yes, or trying to associate anything, along with his name, in worship, etc. It's very clear. Now, when we come to the New Testament, we get some strange things. Because actually, when you go back to the manuscripts, the old manuscripts that are, you know, of

00:11:49--> 00:12:36

course, in the other languages, you find the reference a little different. And I believe that you will find reconciliation, here between what's in the New Testament and the Old Testament if you consider what's in the last testament. So that's what I want to do now is move to what Islam is saying about this subject. Because we have a verse in the Quran in Arabic language, it's in chapter four on Nyssa, verse 48. Now this translates to English that Allah does not forgive shirk. But anything less than this, he can forgive. So if you want to know what is the blasphemy in Islam, what is the unforgivable sin in Islam? It is that someone sets up partners with a law in worship because

00:12:36--> 00:13:20

shirk means to make partners. That's what it means. So if somebody is making partners with God in worship, then this is shark and this is unforgivable. Now, somebody will ask you, well, if a person used to do that, and they quit, could they be forgiven? Yes. What it means when it says then forgivable, it means if you died without giving it up. But anybody who makes mistakes, if they will repent of those things, if they will go back to God and not do that anymore, then of course, they will be forgiven for that. Can we give some practical examples of what we would mean by committing shirker? For instance? If somebody is praying through a St. If someone is praying? Yeah, well

00:13:20--> 00:13:50

through Jesus, if source strength through Mohammed, First there are categories for this? Yes. Okay. There, you don't just say this, this and this, because the scholars over the centuries have put it down for us so that we can go and have reference so we won't get lost. Gotcha. You have categories for belief or a man faith. And then you have categories for shark, you have something that's called shark called Azhar. And something is shark out the big ship, which is the Kabir major Akbar.

00:13:51--> 00:14:19

You have something that's sure called coffee. So you want to put them in the right order, though, you don't just start throwing this and grabbing se because you confuse especially new people, or the children when you're trying to teach them. So let's talk about what is sherco agbar. The big Akbar means great. The biggest, the biggest sin of all, is this shark. Where in a person is clearly worshiping other than a law. Okay? It's clear, it's very clear. If they said a man

00:14:21--> 00:14:30

or a woman, or something else is God and they're worshiping that this this is out, this is not going to happen. Life Sentence.

00:14:31--> 00:14:34

Eternal sense, eternal sense. I think.

00:14:36--> 00:14:48

A better way to say it. No, the next one is sherco asgar. Now sherco asgar is when a person is worshiping something along with a law thinking it will get them to a law.

00:14:49--> 00:14:59

They're clearly doing it but they're considering it not wrong. They're saying I believe in the law, okay, and I'm believing that he's the only one worship

00:15:00--> 00:15:37

But you know I have this amulet that I like to wear and it brings me good luck if I wear it or I have some people wear the Koran a little smoker on that you can't even read it. They put it around their neck and they believe like good luck this is a big no no anything where you have a superstition involved in it it's not gonna work out across well anything anything. Anything that you're carrying with you and thinking it's going to help you doesn't matter is where something around their armor say. Like a bracelet thing that's or anything you empowered now thinking that this can save you this thing is going to benefit you in some way. This is a big no nose. Yeah, even

00:15:37--> 00:15:48

if you said I have a look. What's your rabbit's foot key rabbit's foot wasn't very lucky for the rabbit was it? Have you think about it? Here's this rabbit going on crutches thinking I hate these superstitions.

00:15:50--> 00:16:17

Oh, the other one is when people have the lucky horseshoe. And some people believe it's lucky to hang it this way. So it catches the blessings or whatever and the others hang it the opposite way. And that's some kind of protection. You know to keep things off of you and and all these superstitions are going back to false religions. Yes. If you look to the Christmas tree idea actually comes from the druids in

00:16:19--> 00:16:58

historic Europe A long time ago because they had these beliefs that if they had that evergreen tree, or the branches from it, brought it in their houses and scattered around it keep away the evil spirits. So all these superstitions have no place in Islam, even clapping your hands. Clapping the hands like this was definitely something that the druids in the European religions used to do with the thought that that would scare away the demons. And especially at night around their fires. They used to clap their hands and clap dance because they were scared and they thought clapping and scaring the demons away. Yeah, let's go over cold light scared away some bears. While we're on the

00:16:58--> 00:17:35

subject. A few practical examples were breaking a window or glass glass and you get seven years bad luck. I think that's a Mirror, Mirror, Mirror mirror. Sorry, break a mirror. And you have seven years better. This is totally forbidden to think like this. But by way Christians don't accept that either. The mainstream Christians know that's wrong and they teach you don't think that way Black Cat crossing your way. Same thing. Same thing, walking under the ladder walking under the ladder. Throwing salt over your Yeah, if you spill the salt. According to these superstitions, you take a pinch of salt and throw it over the shoulder. So it will cancel the bad luck that's going to come

00:17:36--> 00:18:24

from spilling the salt but I'm gonna tell you in real life, if you try that you spill some salt and your mom's looking at you going you just spilled the salt. She's walking over there to cleaned up. He grabbed the salt in her face. Now what he's good at, you'd have double bad luck. Here's a couple real good ones look, knocking on wood. Well, now's your time. knocking on wood directly comes straight from the druids, the the wood worshipers in ancient Europe would worshippers Yeah. Because the God that they worshipped his name was wooden. What was his name? Who di n wooden and wooden is the one that he when he died he was supposed to his spirit goes into the tree. Yeah. And then after

00:18:24--> 00:18:36

that they go and worship these trees and thinking that they're reaching the spirit of the tree or the spirit of the nature etc, etc. They were not monotheistic, by the way they were very pantheistic. The Good luck, Penny.

00:18:38--> 00:18:57

There's no such thing as good luck. Yeah, but you'd see what i'm saying where people find the penny and they think that's going to bring them good luck. All these things where if you find a penny, that was your good luck, you got you found something. So basically tell us now why this is something that is prohibited in Islam.

00:18:58--> 00:19:40

How is this relevant now to us now? Okay, from the Islamic point of view, we've already quoted one verse I'd like to quote another verse. This is in chapter 51, verse 56, source code for all dheireadh. And it says here we'll mark Calico Jin, while ends, a little Jamba Doom, and the meaning here more or less is saying that Allah has created the human beings engine only for the purpose of ibadah or worship. And it doesn't mean that you just stay on your knees all the time praying or that you're frustrated with your head on the ground all the time. No. In fact, that isn't what God wants from you. But he wants that, that while you're going through your life, that you consider whatever

00:19:40--> 00:20:00

you're doing as, as something to do with God. I'm working and why do I have a job? He gave me my job and making money who's giving me the money my boss? No. In fact, I don't know if I have a job tomorrow. You don't know if you have a job tomorrow. But what you trust is that the Lord will keep things

00:20:00--> 00:20:44

gone for you. And if you're having bad luck, so to speak, then you need good luck, so to speak, where do you go to get it? Do you ask him and trust him? Or do you go to something else and look for that? Because this is the second one, this is sure, I'll ask God. And it doesn't mean that it's smaller in punishment, what it means it's smaller in appearance, the great short because we already outline is somebody, we're actually going straight to a human being and praying to them going to do graves and praying to those things are is also a major form of shirk. But here's somebody who's just saying that, well, no, I believe in God, you know, and I believe that I can get to God by going to a

00:20:44--> 00:21:24

holy person and asking them by going to a grave and asking them, and by, you know, some, even my Bible, I carry it with me, even I don't read it. But I believe that this Bible is going to save me, you know, or some people do that with the Quran, somebody gets married, I've seen this take place in some countries, that somebody gets married, and they hold the Quran up over their head as they walk to the car, like it's going to bless their marriage. And this is wrong. This is a very serious offense against God. Because you have not believed in him. You've believed in something he created, or something that you can put your hands on and look at play with. So well how La quwata illa Billah

00:21:24--> 00:22:04

all power and might is by no one other than the Creator of the heavens and earth, so nothing can harm your benefit you except through him. Well, this is a good statement, what you said La hawla, wala quwata illa Billah is a very good statement. But it doesn't necessarily refer to curing this idea of shark. Because some people could say, well, I do believe that there's no mic, there's no power, there's no energy coming except from Allah. And I accept that. But still, you know, there are nice things that come along and and now we'll go to the third one, which is sherco Coffee show called coffee is talking about what the word in Arabic means.

00:22:06--> 00:22:09

Not minor, it means hidden. Know

00:22:11--> 00:22:17

that you don't see it. How? Because Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He said,

00:22:18--> 00:22:25

Could you see a black ant on a black rock on a black night? They said no.

00:22:26--> 00:22:43

This creeping of a black ant on a black rock on a black night is the example he gave. He said this is so called caffeine because this is something you can't see it but it's still there. It doesn't mean it's not there doesn't mean it can you can't give you a problem. Because

00:22:44--> 00:23:26

when a person doesn't like the results that Allah has given, and they said, If I would have just done so and so then this wouldn't have happened. There is in essence saying that they have control, only Elias control. If somebody is saying that, oh, if you were to just, you know, use your head and pull the keys out of the car before you slam the door, we wouldn't be stuck out here in the snow freezing to death, and we can't get the car door open. So this you're saying that somebody is at fault and things could have been different than they were? But everything is always according to God's plan. Now, here's another point. How about that, honestly. Adnan Malik was a servant to

00:23:26--> 00:23:33

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him for about 10 years. I think. He said in all that time,

00:23:34--> 00:24:24

Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, never blamed me for anything. So it turns out that blame is also a form of shirk. So when you see people who are saying, well, I blame you for the this. I blame you for so and so. That means you don't believe that Allah had something to do with it. Or at least they had some influence and there isn't any such thing. The blame, a person can blame themselves. And that is something we know in Islam, but to blame others, especially for what is happening to you is wrong. Because, as the prophet Jonah said, when he was in the whale, that look, he said, what kind of condition was he in? He left his people. He got on the boat. He went out the storm came up they

00:24:24--> 00:24:40

threw him overboard. The whale swallowed him he went down to the bottom now, while he's there, the words he says are recorded in crime is not in the Bible anymore. You won't find it but you find it in court on the statement La ilaha illa Anta Japonica in equal to many dollar mean.

00:24:42--> 00:24:47

This mean that there is no god worthy of worship except you a law

00:24:49--> 00:24:57

and all the glory is to you. And I am for sure the one who did the wrongdoing to myself.

00:24:59--> 00:24:59

It says you

00:25:00--> 00:25:43

This is the best psychological treatment for disaster to realize that I wouldn't even be in this pickle. Except that I did this to myself. I don't blame anybody. Now sometimes allow, he'll put you in conditions that you didn't really feel like you earned it or deserved it. But still, it's going to be a result of the tests that God has you in. So you don't turn around and say, Oh, God, why you did this to me, you don't do that. Don't do that. And the other thing is, don't blame other people. Why I'm in this is because of you. And you and you. Don't blame other people, even when you want to look at the broader picture in the political and government problems that Muslims are suffering from

00:25:43--> 00:26:25

around the world. When I go to these countries, I'm lecturing them, and I'm telling them guys, I know you want to blame this person in this religious group, or that person and this media and so on, and so on. So, but the reason you're in the condition you're in is because of your own deeds, is because of your own shortcomings is because of your wrong beliefs. And so a lot has basically given you a way to cure your problem, turn to him, you turn to him and give him what he is telling you give him what's rightfully his, which is what's called taqwa, have tougher for a law. If you do that, then you see things change, but it's not going to change the dog because he also said about

00:26:25--> 00:26:57

that in the Quran, that Allah will not change the condition of a people until the people change themselves. Make sense? That makes sense. We're gonna have to cut out now we're running out of time, but I think this subject is very deep. So we're gonna have to do a part two for this. Would you mind covering it with us again? Well, if you guys want to do that, and I'm ready for it. That sounds great. So really quickly, let's summarize. We covered the ambulance we covered some different categories of shirt just give us a summary of everything real quickly.

00:26:59--> 00:27:01

One time the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him,

00:27:03--> 00:27:12

lead the salata. fudger, the morning prayer, and then he turned to his companions. And he said about the rain it had rained during the night.

00:27:13--> 00:27:34

And he said, some people went to bed as believers and become disbelievers by the morning. And some went to bed as disbelievers and they became believers in the morning. As for those who were disbeliever, the believers are the ones who said that this rain is from Almighty God.

00:27:35--> 00:28:14

But it's for the disbelievers. They're the ones who said that this rain is because of certain certain stars or constellations in the heaven. So this is clear to us that at any time somebody could say the wrong thing and become a disbeliever. Allah says in the Quran about this subject. Yeah, you live in Amanullah, takala Hakata he, while laptimer tuna, Ella, quantum Muslim. Oh, you believe give full respect, honor dignity to a law and everything that goes with that the opposite of blasphemy is what this is talking about right here that what is the opposite of blasphemy, with due respect and honor to a law in every aspect, fearing, fearing the punishment that will result if you

00:28:14--> 00:28:15

don't,

00:28:16--> 00:28:23

it's his right, and don't die, except in a state of full submission to His will in peace.

00:28:25--> 00:29:12

And thank you very much for being with us. You heard the message, to give full reverence and honor to the one who created you. And not all that love and reverence to the creation but to the Creator. So once again, as I always say, if you can dig, worshipping the creator and not his creation, then you can dig Islam. And that's what it's all about, is honoring and respecting and worshiping the Creator of the heavens and the earth alone without no partners, and calling upon him in all your distress and the hard times. So we hope that you tune in again next week for another episode of the deen show. We're going to have a part two on this very important topic. Until then, we'll see you

00:29:12--> 00:29:20

inshallah, God willing on the deen show. And if you ever miss any of our shows, you can go back to the website the deen show.com See you again.

00:29:28--> 00:29:51

And hamdulillah Salaam Alaikum. Peace be unto you. Welcome to another episode of the deen Show. I'm your host Eddie. And today we're gonna be continuing on talking about the unforgivable sin that will land you a place eternally into something and somewhere you don't want to be the hellfire. So we're gonna cover this topic. So sit tight.

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

Right back on the dean show.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

I love that.

00:30:02--> 00:30:04

Is his messenger

00:30:14--> 00:30:17

Jesus was his messenger.

00:30:22--> 00:31:11

No, I did that. Maybe. Maybe it's just to break the ice. Welcome back to the deen show. And most of you recognize our guests here before I even mentioned his name. He's been with us before share use of SS former Christian preacher minister. How are you? Sir? Well, Lake Como salat wa salam alaikum. Nice to be with you today, Eddie. It's nice to have you with us. So now we covered the unforgivable sin. And we gave some practical examples. Today people are praying to man, God's people are putting intermediaries between them and God, people are going to confession boxes, which people are wearing amulets and empowering these things. I know a practical example I can give you that. I know certain

00:31:11--> 00:31:55

people in our community, what they do is they go ahead to any mom actually. And he writes some things, maybe even some Quran, he wraps it up in a paper and he puts it in this sewed up cloth. And then they wear it around their neck. So now they kiss this and, or even the morning the star and they, you know, feel that this brings them some good, empowering, good luck. So all these things we want to kind of briefly cover and try to get the people away from this. Educate them, help them understand why this has no place in Islam. Well, first of all, I do want to mention that there are a number of people out there who are shying away from organized religion, and they're turning toward

00:31:55--> 00:32:08

various made up religions, and even some, some very strange things, black magic, and, you know, good luck charms and things like that, trying to find something that'll work for them.

00:32:09--> 00:32:17

But then also organized religion itself, it seems to get away from the main thrust of what it's supposed to be about.

00:32:18--> 00:32:52

If you look to what the scripture says, and then you look to what the preacher says, you often find two different things you mentioned, for instance, the Imam, the Imam, or leader of the Muslim should never be committing the very thing that he's telling people not to do. But in fact, those people who are doing this are the worst of the worst kind of people. And I'm not saying that from my point of view, I'm saying it from the Prophet sallallahu Sallam what he said about it, he said that Allah is going to start the fire of hell

00:32:53--> 00:33:42

with the people who were preaching this message of worshipping only God, but they themselves didn't follow it. So I can understand that because as we explained and discovered, in our previous program, that blasphemy is to be irreverent with the name of God. And in Islam, it's the same because God's name is a law. But it's also 99. Other names that we know about him too. So for instance, a law is the all forgiving, so if you said somebody else was also forgiving, you could go to them and ask them to get forgiveness for you. This is going against his name, practical example. You go to the confession box, and there's someone sitting on the other end. So you open this box up, and now you

00:33:42--> 00:34:22

sit there and tell this person, your whole life story. And it goes something like this, when you go to the confessional, and you enter one side, and there's the priest on the other, you open the little window, and he says, bless me, Father, for I have sinned, then the priest will ask him, How long has it been since your last confession? And he will tell him, and then he'll say, to give me everything since that time, then he will begin to tell him tell the parishioner what he needs to do to be absolved of those sins. Usually, it's so many Hail Marys, and that means to do a recitation or thicker hail Mary full of grace, and then they'll say that, so this means they're calling on Mary

00:34:22--> 00:34:59

now. Then even calling on god they're calling on Mary. And then so many going around the beach. They their test bear or we call Decker beats, they called the Rosary. That's where we actually got these. Could be Yeah, rosary beads, rosary beads. Yeah. So they haven't go over these, the Catholic priests have them go over these rosary beads. Yeah. Then what happens now is if you believe that, that priests can forgive you, even if you said, Well, I need forgiveness from God, but I go to a priest. The priest in turn is going to Jesus

00:35:01--> 00:35:21

And Jesus in turn is turning it over to God. This is a lot of folks in the lineup here. And a lot is not accepting that because with him is direct your worship to a law, you're speaking to a law in your heart to a law is always direct in Islam, to Almighty God always

00:35:22--> 00:35:43

is not optional. This is not something that you can make up either Noah's talking about man made religions. Now what happens is someone who sees the fallacy of some of these practices, and then they throw all religion out the door at the same time. And this is a big mistake because they become atheists, or they become agnostic.

00:35:44--> 00:36:32

It is better to sit with people who are properly trained and skilled and knowledgeable in the subject, and get from them what the faith is really supposed to be about, then you're able to draw a better conclusion was strong about and then ultimately, you don't take my word for it. And you don't take anybody's word for you. Don't go to the internet and accept that. But you accept that God will answer your prayer direct. So you asked him, What do you want to know, I want to know about you God. So ask him, I want to be forgiven by you. So ask him, I need things in my daily life, ask him, talk to him, let your heart out to him cry to him. The more you do it, the more you'll see that that's

00:36:32--> 00:37:17

true. Or just leave this going alone at some confession box and talking to somebody behind this screen. It's a known of unforgivable sin is the US. Yes, I've met priests who actually changed over and became Muslims. That happened the night before I entered Islam is a dear friend entered into Islam, he was a Catholic priest. And he said essentially the same thing. He talked about a lot of the differences between what Christianity really taught and what he was finding in the church, he was very dissatisfied with a lot of the things the church was doing. Now, when they convene these councils in the church, the Catholic Church, these men are able to sit around and decide what the

00:37:17--> 00:37:18

religion is going to be now.

00:37:19--> 00:38:03

So it's definitely coming from men, not from God. So when somebody says, that's a man made religion, how could you argue that when it's men sitting there telling you yes and no, and yes or no, an example would be in the 60s, when they decided that the women could change their dress code that they'd had for so many years, they could start shortening up the, the skirts, and they could show their arms and things. But traditionally, always before they award exactly like the Muslim woman were, then in another case that they changed the idea of the Lent, Lent is 30 days starting on the Ash Wednesday. And this is, by the way, Mardi Gras ends on Fat Tuesday, the day before, then they

00:38:03--> 00:38:09

got plenty to repent for on Wednesday. And then they begin and they're supposed to give up

00:38:11--> 00:38:54

different things that some say there's not supposed to eat like we do for Ramadan. Some say they can't eat any meat. And then but they could have fish on Friday. And that's if you've ever heard about Catholics eating fish on Friday, then I had one priest Tell me in about 1996, a priest told me that they had changed it again. And he actually told somebody just to give up something for a few hours a day. I think it was smoking, he turned this don't smoke between this time and that time, Who gave you the right to do that? You have no right to do that. Do you? So one point I wanted to make now if you're going to confess your sins to this priests, so does he have a ticket to paradise he's

00:38:54--> 00:38:58

already purified himself. That's what it seems like.

00:38:59--> 00:39:38

And now it seems like kind of convenient because you can go and hang out at the Mardi Gras. Just have such a great time for Nick Kay, do all sorts of sin. And then you know what, I got the confession box, I can just like a therapy or get this off my chest and then he forgives the sins. On what authority? Can you do that? Is there anything actually that some proofs of evidence that says that he has the authority, power of attorney from the creator to be able to forgive sins, so that people now know that they're wasting their time? Well, actually, this is a good point that you're bringing up the power of attorney.

00:39:40--> 00:39:57

And I want to talk about intercession now a little bit because this is what we're talking about somebody to intercede for a person to go in front of God and say, God, you need to forgive this guy, like a lawyer and an advocate and you said, Okay, he's gonna take care of it for me.

00:39:58--> 00:39:59

Well, if that

00:40:00--> 00:40:47

For the case, then all of us would be going to whoever this advocate advocate is and basically trying to bribe them to go up and do it here. In Christianity, this there are some who claim that that's the role of Jesus to be the advocate, to go in front of God and speak and so on. However, that's a mistake. And even from scripture itself, because even according to their scripture, which they don't have the original anymore, but they still have some things. And in john, chapters 14 and 16, they can find Jesus prophesied, the Prophet Muhammad is going to come when he's going to be the advocate. He's called the spirit of truth. And that's exactly what he was labeled as his nickname

00:40:47--> 00:40:52

when he was growing up Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He was called a sodic.

00:40:53--> 00:41:14

The truthful and he was also called the one who brings together the families. You can I want to just jump in that Encyclopedia Britannica confirms that he was an honest and upright man who was surrounded by others who also honest enough, right? When it's in the making, check this out if they need to. Go ahead, please.

00:41:15--> 00:41:27

The point that I'm trying to make here is that in that verse in the Bible, it said, it's he will be the Comforter, some calling them mighty counselor, and others called him the advocate.

00:41:29--> 00:42:04

The Trent, were they translated? Yeah, well, this is Jesus saying that's who's coming. He didn't say that, to me is that that's who's coming, the advocate, the counselor. So he's saying the one who's coming will be basically if there's going to be intercession, then that's when we're going to do it. Now, Jesus. Now they said, Well, that's the Holy Spirit. Then they tried to make everybody believe this is the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit had already been their holy spirit. So when it came to Marian told her she was gonna start with, so was that. So this big thing about the Holy Spirit coming is, and that's the advocate is wrong, according to Scripture.

00:42:05--> 00:42:38

The other thing is that if you notice in the gospels, when it talks about the Holy Spirit, it's saying that he did exactly the same thing. In one gospel, as jabril. Gabriel did, and another gospel, the way that jabril comes, and he's telling Joseph about don't abandon your wife because she is pregnant, but she's pregnant by miracle here and so on. Now, so that we can understand this in the Koran is resolved.

00:42:39--> 00:42:49

The angel gabriel has a title is title is real produce, that means the Holy Spirit. So and you could call somebody,

00:42:50--> 00:42:51

Dr.

00:42:52--> 00:43:41

So and so you could call him Professor so and so? Because he's a doctor and a professor. And this is the case of jabril. He also is the arch Angel, but he's also called the real kudos. So it is not jabril who's coming to do this being advocate and counselor, it is Muhammad. Peace be upon and Paramount peace be upon him. Tourist do everything directly to a lot Escalade. Escalade Escalade, don't ask him even. Let me give you an example of something. That was after the prayer one time when Prophet Mohammed turned to his congregation, he said to them, that nobody is going to have salvation. Nobody's going to have salvation, except by the mercy of Almighty God. None will be

00:43:41--> 00:43:45

saved, except by the rightness or Mercy of Allah.

00:43:46--> 00:43:51

And they said, even you Rasulullah he said, Even me.

00:43:53--> 00:44:11

So we see that he is not someone we're gonna go to, and ask Him to forgive us, for God, it doesn't work like that. Because he said himself, he can't even be forgiven him for mercy on him. No, there is in Islam, this idea that in the next life,

00:44:12--> 00:44:51

and the next slide, there is going to be something take place. And some people compare that to intercession. And what this is, is a Hadith of the Prophet peace be upon him. When he says that, on the day of judgment, the sun will be brought close, all of the people will be there, you see, and the sun will be brought close. People will be standing in their own sweat up to their necks, it's going to be a very horrible situation. It's going to be going on and on and on and on and on. And this heat is going to be tremendous. And the people are going to be going to Adam and they're going to say you know, you know you started it because you made the first sin of the human so you will go

00:44:51--> 00:44:54

to your Lord and tell him to start the judgment. Let's get this over with

00:44:55--> 00:44:56

and he will say

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

your Lord is angry.

00:45:00--> 00:45:18

He's using the word of God up here, your Lord is angry today is he's never been angry before. And you'll never be this angry again. And I have my own sin to deal with. And I'm not going to do it. Go ask Abraham. So they go to Abraham and ask him and he responds the same way

00:45:20--> 00:45:48

that your Lord is angry today, as he's never been angry before, you'll never be this angry again. And go as Moses. And they'll go from Moses, then and so on until they come to Jesus. It doesn't say any sin on Jesus doesn't mention that. But he does say go on to Mohammed. So Islam, so then, when they come to Mohammed Salah later some peace be upon him, they say, look, get your Lord to start up the judgment.

00:45:49--> 00:45:55

And then he will go in front of a law. And he will prostrate in front of a law

00:45:56--> 00:46:42

with his head on the ground, and then Allah will inspire him what to say. So this is not the same kind of thing that people are thinking about intercession where you can just go and do whatever. Gotcha covered. It's not like that. So here is pregnant moms. So Islam peace be upon him, he's got his head on the ground. And he is asking, he's asking a lot, to let the believers come out of the fire. For some of them, believers will be in the fire. Why? Because they still had that sense. And they made mistakes. But even those who have faith in law, law law, and they've done some good deeds, so and so now they will be in the fire up to their ankles, and allow will let them out. Then

00:46:42--> 00:47:27

Mohammed says, he's going to put his head back on the ground again. And he will then separate it again, according to the inspiration coming from Almighty Allah, and then allow will let the ones up to their leg will be out. And this will continue until the one up to the neck. And then finally, it will be that if anybody even had a grain of faith at all, in this law, let alone none to worship except Allah first commandment no Gods beside God, if they had even a grain of faith, then they would be let out of the fire as well. And then in another Hadith, similar to this one, he also says, and even if they said, La Ilaha, Illa, Allah, they will come out of the fire, which means there is

00:47:27--> 00:48:04

no D, there is no duty to worship, other than a law, but it means that they really loved it, too. They can't just say it and walk off. It means you have to give worship now this really keeps you busy your whole life doing good deeds, strive, it's more than good deeds, Eddie, this is I don't think anybody can just do good deeds all day long. I don't think that's practical. But it means to do what you do. As this in a sense of worship, in that you're obeying God, yes, I eat you eat. But when I eat, I don't eat the things he doesn't want me to eat. So that becomes an act of worship.

00:48:06--> 00:48:49

You walk in, I walk, but we don't walk to the places where we're not supposed to go. So there's our walking becomes an act of worship, so loving what he loves hating what he hates. There's a few more examples. Think of this when Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was explaining this same thing to his followers. And he told them, even when you go to your wife for relations, you will be rewarded by law. They said why we like that. I mean, we get reward for doing what we like. He said, Absolutely. He said, Would you be punished? If you went to some other woman? It's not your wife. Illegal? And of course, would you be punished, said, Of course, he said. So in the same way, if you

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

do it legally in Islam, that's worship. So anything that you do, that is legal in Islam is worship, you're aware that I'm doing this legally in Islam. Now, you might be surprised to find this out. But hooking your seatbelt can give you a reward with a lot.

00:49:09--> 00:49:49

Of course, it saves you from getting a ticket, but you're doing it because you're protecting your body and the body belongs to a law and you're supposed to take care of it. So this is along with the the worshiping your Creator along with our partners, praying, giving the charity the poor, do tax fasting. And the other thing staying away from those are the things that you have to do in worship to be considered as a Muslim. Yes. But once as a Muslim, let us say for instance, that sleep is a real important thing for a person to do. So when he's tired and his body needs rest and he sleeps, he's getting reward for sleeping, but you're busy consciously always thinking about these things. So

00:49:49--> 00:49:59

you don't have time now to get involved in some trouble. If you're consciously thinking of your Creator, look at this. Can you imagine a person getting reward

00:50:00--> 00:50:01

With a love for brushing their teeth.

00:50:04--> 00:50:13

who think of that, but in Islam we know 1400 years ago Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him use the tooth stick from a special tree, the tree when you use this

00:50:15--> 00:50:50

stick, not only does it clean your teeth, clean your breath, and it removes tartar, and it keeps the gums clean. And they don't have anything like it today, except that it still is the best thing because it does not take enamel from your teeth. But on top of that, because you used it because you knew it was something to do from our religion from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Now you're also going to get your reward for it on the day judgment. So imagine this, this is incredible. Now when I'm not done, how about the person who goes to the bathroom, you go to the bathroom and get rewarded by a law?

00:50:51--> 00:51:03

Why? Because when we go to the toilet to use it, we know how Muslim is to use it, to prevent getting stepped on ourselves to clean up afterwards so that we're totally clean and hygienically

00:51:05--> 00:51:48

purified of these, these are those guildies we're trying to feel and this is a reward. So being honest, being just staying away from evil, all these things that's for the sake of pleasing your Creator. This is how you get those rewards. I like to thank you again for being with us. So to be on the show. I like the deen show, I got to have you back again we were covering the unforgivable sin. So just to recap, worship your Creator alone. Do not ascribe any partners to him. Try to stay on loving everything he loves and staying away from everything that displeases him. He is the only one that can forgive sins. You don't need to go to Confession box. You don't need to pray to anyone

00:51:48--> 00:52:21

other than the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And if you can dig that, that there is no deity worthy of worship except the Creator of the heavens and the earth. Then you can dig Islam and I'm glad that you've come to the source. And we hope that you tune in again next week for another show. If you don't catch us live on the TV, you can visit our website, the deen show calm and we look forward to having you again. God willing, inshallah Salaam Alaikum peace be unto you
