sorts of queries another very, very amazing Surah talks a lot about the things that are going to happen, you know, the end of the world and things like that. But there's one particular idea that strikes me as significant or less fun with us as women who are allies of IB Madani is that he's talking about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and that he is not going to withhold information about the vibe about the unseen. And this is an important doctrinal point when it comes to Islam is that it's not esoteric, right? You see some people sometimes in some movements, and they say, you know, it's like, well, this is the hidden teaching of the Prophet Mohammed sites, or the

00:00:32--> 00:01:07

00:01:40--> 00:02:10

things that are lost primadonna have obligated upon you the pillars of Islam, the Salah, there's a car Ramadan, the all these sorts of things, right? And then after you've taken care of them, then you continue to draw closer to the last final data with extra right but you don't substitute you don't put the cart before the horse. You don't substitute the mandatory for the permissible or for the recommended right. Islam is about taking care of the basics, right. It's not about hidden knowledge, secret knowledge, secret things. And so that's something that sorts of tech we it reminds us of
