He used to live in Saudi Arabia before. And he wrote a book to refute the atheism and stuff like that. And they said that this book is the mob of our hurling engine.
But this man ended up atheist
hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah and ADAD As salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and welcome back to be on the money but beyond the member podcast, I am your host, Mohamed Bursa, Eid. And today from the love law, I mean, we have a very, very, very special guest. Our guest has not been at weaning method for some time and it is my absolute pleasure and honor to have our chef here who has us visiting us from across the pond as they say, and with today, chef would eat bassoon in Santa Monica chef while it comes down to low on a cat on her mind is like a locker for having me be on the member. I like magic. I love magic. It's really been nice to see you like I mentioned
mashallah, I think it's been nearly close to four years since you've been at Green mustard. I'll be honest with you, I've lost count of years with COVID it's
like sometimes I think it's last year. Oh number three years ago, it just
that period of time. But definitely it was like more than three years. Yes. And it has been a long time since I came to the United Kingdom. But it is an absolute pleasure to have you back. Thank you. Good to see you.
Very blessed place on the line always love to visit the mustard whenever it comes to England pongola Is that allowing that presented chef so today mashallah, it was the day of Jamar and we attended the hotbed llama beverages, aka law fair. And you the football was very, very practical. And it was about seeking knowledge. Right. And I was sitting with the one of the brothers who you met earlier, the brother from Islam is a member. And it was the whole debates about knowledge and use, we've put so many stories in there from different scholars, right. And also give us five points of what five points that shouldn't hinder you from knowledge and five points they should take on to actually
encourage you to seek knowledge. So that kind of even inspired me to want to talk about this, this podcast in this subject. So inshallah today with yourself chef, I would love to discuss the matter of Athena shuffle. So my first question is just to you because our our viewers, you know, the general Muslim students of knowledge, we get loads of different comments from different people who watch the show. So my first question is shift is a very general question in sha Allah to Anna, it is, what is the meaning about leader. And when this term comes from insha, Allah briger aki de ne it's a, it's an Arabic word comes from the Lord Dakka Dakka, which is like a not an act is when you
tie two things together, you make a not strong connection. So an update is between certain articles of faith and the heart, because that's where the belief is. So it is what it is when your heart is confirming, you know, a certain belief and these belief aren't related to the shahada, which is laid out in Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah and what it entails. So also you can say it is that confirm believe that we are so certain about something and you believe in it, deeply believe in it.
And that will apply for example to the article of faith like I'm below him and I could do to be a little silly. That's how she'll send me Tamia defined actually decayed and he's an every one of these, what it entails.
And you can find others said no, it is about shouted Allah, Allahu Allah and what until the end of the day, both whatever, we're not going to fight over terminologies. But the end of the day it is these articles that you have confirmed believe about it. And that's
through history became something that focusing on issues that they are not in the practice and the practical things, so they don't consider the salaat and parts of the arcade the science, okay.
Big Data became more of a branch of Islamic Studies. And this a lot either while and only focus in theoretical things, you know, not something that required
Like not Solana Itza Cardin up Hodge these are the practical part of Islam. But then Octavia will be what's the believing listen to Allah the angels,
I'm sorry from being a little bit more details but
that development not necessarily happen by Anacin.
Historically speaking that development contribute to the development of this branch of Islamic Studies, by so many people, like any other field like Phil Coulson felt that
that essence of it was known early in Assam. But centuries later on three and 200 years, whatever. The second century that or the end of the second century, there is now an a development of SonicWALL Arcada. The belief and that development of that branch was intention with intent to identify what are the area of belief that the Sunni, for example, will be different from Nonsan knees, or people who follow the Pearson know the way the fossils of them from Anil Kumar and versus others, and this, that became something later on to identify them. But that's not what the updater is only the RK that can be also seen and
in the people don't follow the authority.
They develop the app either with the collet EML column.
And I think that's one of the big difference between the approach of Takeda in a threeway versus non authentic for us, we don't consider that minimal cannamd We don't say either, but then reality Oman cannamd is what we call it the in the authority, you know, traditions, but for them it's Animal Kingdom or they call it a Leela yacht or a high Viet with even using word like a havia. to Lilia here. That's one branch of arcade anyway, I'm not gonna go into the deal. But what I what I want the listeners to understand, the Acadia became a science are one of Slavic studies, like we talked about some star Hadith. And that feel, focusing on the issue of Article of Faith, and the thing related to
theology in general. They is everything in that field. Every Muslim must believe in No.
Any tomorrow, I'm teaching here, one of them, we're going to talk about enemy Zan,
there is a skill that your deeds will be way to, every Muslim must be believed. And so in the cold called the skill Museum, and your deed will be waiting, period.
But you know, what theology and talk about? Do you have one museum or multiple ones? And if there are multiple each, each one person has a museum or not? You see, I'm saying this means then how big What's the size? What's in it, who will be with all these details, is not something that I'm required. And it's an essence, you know, huge evatik And Allah never asked us to believe in these things, you know, but it is became part of animal again, a branches not
any major issues is like, the problem so Allah or not, what I need to believe that we will see Allah and the Day of Judgment that Allah can be seen on Allah sees, but did the process on him. So that's part of her element Arcada, but it's not of the artery that that every Muslim must prescribe to. So in the elemental, okay, that became fundamentals and principles and branches. But if you go originally to what's the upgrade they used to be, it's only about the thing that you must believe. And if you not, you're not suddenly. But over time it changed. And that's why people have to differentiate between
a statement like
you can learn that in five minutes.
Yeah, that's true or not true. Yeah. Yeah. The things that will make me have a correct belief in God in Islam, I can learn if I'm in it.
And it's not true if you're going to talk about the science of okay, that's way more deeper discussions. And there's more and so
understanding that historical background of how this develops over time, it allows you to deal with because these statements can be tricky people like rush to criticize the viewer saying it or is oh, okay, that doesn't matter, no matter otherwise, I can say about the fifth house. Everything I can say is symbols like one minute thing. But it's became more complicated as time passed. By
Athletic, there's a golfer. So Scheffer now, you know, you touched upon you talked about the fundamentals in on the foundations. Mr. Pena, so those themes in terms of the general Muslim,
what role does that play in the Muslims dating life? Because you spoke about, you know, of course, the theology and then the practical, practical part of it in terms of, you know, Salah cm.
And then you have the app leader. So, the foundation's, what role does that play an average Muslim Stanely. Like, bring it
I'll talk from the school that I I
practice, the mythology of additional demand the Atari way of looking at it, because I believe that is a huge difference between the athletic approach to the ocarina versus the three very big difference. And I just talked about from the perspective of the authority when we look at our data, we don't look at it as something theoretical, which is not a bunch of information. That's for us, not the belief. The essence of beliefs, is when you translate this to action. That's why we don't really differentiate between
Eman and 30 cents is what is a combination of three things. actions or believing the heart statement, which is Lele Lulla it was just the tongue then the actions of the body limbs joda? None, I thought he will not consider our model as part of Eman that's so for them when he talks about creating that they don't think about a man solely as part of it even though they down on the road they contradicting this law because it's a problematic because it's not the way Islam was brought. Islam was brought to be these three components together. Or more specific the two components the actions and the belief and why middle Saudi high so when you look into that, so that means when I
when I say our Salah yeah it is practical power but also there was a belief and I believe it's must I believe it bring me closer to Allah I believe when I pray Allah listened to me, that's has to do with the Akita, with that to God with my belief.
When I pray, I know that Allah Subhana Allah loves that the velocity word before it. So it okay this should inspire you, in my opinion, the more you study, either it inspire you first understand Allah better.
And that's a big huge part of al Qaeda. Who is Allah subhanaw taala. And the more you know, his names, his attributes, you know, his Rama has hikma has his idol has basically mercy. The more you love him, the more you trust Him, the more you rely on him, the more you know that he listens to you, he sees you the more you feel him, you respect him. And the more you do that, the more you submit yourself to Allah find out and you'd be looking forward to meet Allah subhanaw taala and it's a Fiat authority once was asked Is it true those who get to know Allah subhanaw taala very well. They will be always afraid of Allah and worries about the relationship with Allah Carlina Manohara
for Allah Tala, for
those truly who knows Allah, they will be always happy.
They will be always happy because I know how much last month Allah loves me and how much I lost my father. Yeah, and he is nice and kind and to the Billy. So the morning and also to respect and to fear him when it
comes to the area of sending and basically
disobeying now I just give you an example. Interesting I was talking to a
When you Monica you mentioned that when you make the Quran Allah
when you mentioned the Hadith said, Man the Quran if you'd have said the carto Venus, Amanda cannon in regard to
when as a attribute we do believe that when you say mentioned Allah subhanaw taala between yourself stuff Allah Subhana Allah is not going to mention you to himself, literally
is just make you feel above the clouds.
This not only that, and if you mentioned last night in a gathering, Allah mentioned in the gathering better than yours, which is the angels.
That's enough to make you know how kind Allah, Allah is. You know how many people we talked about? And they never ever talked about about, like flickable these celebrities and you send them likes and you make comment in the social media. Nobody ever. If you even open your comment, you'll be oh my god. He looked at my comment, you know, oh my god, I can't
Believe it he tweet he retweeted my tweet. You will be yaki. Subhan Allah Allah the king
of the worlds mentioned you to the angels
mentioned you to not only that that's where the knockdown fight the point comes in no claim Rahim Allah said and the third Quran Allah the Quran Wa heathen faith Kuru kallikrein. Outer up. You mentioned Allah Subhan Allah once, but Allah mentioned you
How before you mentioned him before he said Stafford Allah Subhan Allah who are meeting al Fatiha Quran
Allah Subhana Allah once you and allowed you to do that so his will arrivato he guided you open your heart to make that so he already mentioned you before you mentioned him
then when you mention him he mentions you then after you finish Allah thank you for it and mentioning again
and reward you for it
you did one he did three that's why when he said if you walk our run to you
that's what I think. I think the biggest gene is the biggest crime and my opinion was done to own up either is by Donvan the hand and maybe this is the strongest statement the non authority who transfer Illuminati the into
philosophy debates and you know
has nothing to do with the nature of the beauty of the arcade it's turned out to be just an animal kingdom just talk just to debatable raise more doubts like one of them was like the soup and this is oh this is * on so have 1000 proof that Allah subhanaw taala is exist
his whole life is about Allah's exist as exists then an old woman in the Socrates yeah because he has 1000 Doubts
these exist this is something like the oh my god this is a big issue in this theology book. That's why people turned away from the arcade became became something so like dry but when they know that when a fast Alpha loves them unless we're going to mention me that's when they'll get a turn you when they know about the angels about the day of judgement about the cover about the you know a Wilson will MBR about marizanne MBR it makes you Jani it open your heart and your mind and had been Tamia said something interesting he said
and honestly, Assassin Draka site
the more accurate you are on your leader, the more accurate you will be in your understanding in general. That's why who is the more accurate and
the early generation who have the correct Arcada
i Everybody hands down agree into that. From Sahaba Tabby let's bang an Autobot that immediate students always or you never find anyone all these are prescribed to any Vidal Mater without anything like that or in theology other than the pure theology that I thought it okay that theology and it it makes you consistent. It just it is something that I'm I'm very passionate about and I do believe that Muslims should not shy away from looking into the way that I've been that used to be not the argument not some like nonsense somebody just come and told me Allah doesn't tell you doesn't talk and now became like a big issue I fell off I'm gonna speak the way he was simple.
Not exactly like a vertical epic. I really appreciate it. You know, so Pamela, you
in terms of the simplicity of it, you know, and and then how the big effect that it has on a person, you know, just that'll help with that. There's a man from the my Tesla telling us Yeah, he's saying Tim
Mozilla were empowered at the time and the snow were weak and empowered by the government that my Tesla and they believe that Allah doesn't talk.
So one of them was telling us Yeah, he said
INGOs fraid. That the Day of Judgment, you will be hold accountable for this believe to say that the law talks. What would you say to Allah when he tells you how dare you say that I taught
this and he just said, oh, say here you go, God, you're talking
are talking. It just it's nonsense when you go outside the simplicity of an arcade is so simple it is.
It was narrated earlier called El knockback kuthodaw jehlen Allah was a drop ignorant people turn into an ocean otherwise it's simple. Now, there's a couple of Fisher said you mentioned
at a certain an athletic
for those who are watching the they are out the difference of opinion in our leader, but what you mentioned him which is what we were talking about more or less the action and authority we Charlottetown So, tell us a bit what are like we touched a bit of differences of them what what are those differences in how can people who are listening say okay, I know what is to stay away from and what was you know, part of, you know, the, the the Aveda from what it was as in for see that the average Muslim is upon the SAR period unless somebody comes in corrupt them.
And that's why even the very the people who are involved in some sects and groups and prescribed Sunday second group in Islam, some of them when the when, when they went back, and they want to repent from all these things that they wasted their life doing what they say said I'm going to eradicate it. I just need support. I die like the old woman of my support or old woman's of which is the simple, no straightforward
thing. If I see anyone on the street, if anyone here non-specialized innovate and ask a simple question, does the last one gonna have mercy? Does Allah subhanaw taala? Yes, wouldn't there be so someone told a bedwin bedwin with the processor, the processor term, yield back Rabona Allah Sangha laugh at, he said, I if our God law that means that Allah subhanaw taala is so nice and kind.
He did not take it in any other way other than that, Allah is above the world above his throne house above is normally going to say above his throne means he's better than his throne. or above his throne. I don't know what that means. You know, no, it's simple. Above his throne and throne above the world. How I don't know how
ALLAH SubhanA wa Donna Oh Allah subhanaw taala has hand or he said he carried around with these critters with a house simple. The average person here that understand nobody think oh, he has a hand like mine or you have to be corrupted to be that That's why Allah the second with Alicia, Allah has nothing to but also you don't understand that he doesn't have a hand. No. Yes. And can you item with it? How I don't know. It's like Allah subhanaw taala speaks how I don't know is speak it doesn't mean to have a vocal
cords and stuff like that the way that we talk? No, no, no machine talks out in a different way that
it creations are very different than the way but I understand talk when I you know, Allah talks, I don't think Allah has an umbrella. I am no talk. It's it's so simple. The average Muslim understand that. So I always say I 100 understand that. But that's not how the bidder that introduces now, when you say to an average Muslim about the Sahaba I love the Sahaba you know, so historically speaking, what happened is when the process of them told us all of it, he said this ummah will be splitting will be divided. And that what happened they divided from an early time where people cursed the Sahaba don't believe in the Sahaba and we that led them to take extreme position toward what the
Sahaba have narrated and the moment you drop the Sahaba you have to drop what the narrated what the delivered Okay, and that's why the rejecting of the Sunnah came and make even no sense that you accept the Quran because the Quran delivered by the sahaba. So, then after a while, but the issue of the Sunnah and how fantastic it is how reliable the Sunnah is it became an issue like and almost all the second century people raised started but to grow more and more as we go on time. And the aroma rejected that idea became Allison reverses those who don't follow the sun. Then I'll Gemma versus those who don't follow the Sahaba because the Sahaba otter unite and Gemma, also Ultima versus those
who rebel against leaders in that time and break an annual the line that will meet after that. So Jim
I became those who, you know, hinted around the Muslim leaders who don't break that, like the melodic and stuff like that. Later on, you have the people who start like, you know, not following the way of the early generation, which is the way of the Sahaba and the tambourine. And those all of them are so and that's why that his name became ethnicity came out, I looked Hadith. And added hadith is different than what you use in India today, like Al Hadith versus the Hanafi, or vs. That's historically not necessarily to be the case, historically, and Hadith it can be Shafi and from like a widowed for example, or can be humbly and can be prescribed Omega been added honey.
But added Hadith, it means that people who, at that time followed the Hadith, follow the Sunnah follow the notations versus people who annoy any, they don't suddenly prescribe to them. And I'll write it also is not equal to the holiday just to make sure that these terms has turtley speaking have a very, maybe a different use than what we have today.
Going forward, you know, so all these groups appears, and there are so many of them.
What's interesting, when the Hadith talks about the split, the Hadith never talked about the descriptions, or the qualities of these 70 Plus groups who split away. The hadith only focus on one group, which is the safe sex, who are they? What their quality? That's why it is so important for you guys, listen to me. Don't focus on what is wrong. Focus on what is correct. Understand what's the operative antecedent, you know, take a simple book, read it, like a book pilosity, for example. So something we call him on law. And the books are so many, you know, look at that. I can't think I'm Shafi look at that, you know, Abraham Razi look at the Acadian high Rahim Allah
open a book like the banner live and
have been a book like the Sharia. God Rahim, Allah was a great Chavez color.
read their book. And again, you will find simple straightforward points, you know,
yes, at a certain point, if you live around or when people have some problems, you need to learn about how to have like, build an immune system towards these doubts and stuff like that. But you cannot do that before you invest in W. I don't want the subject of al Qaeda to be a subject that is meant to
divide the communities to be a tool to your map today, your while your cafe or this is not the point the point is, an upgrade has to develop you as a person to have a better relationship with Allah. To be really from earlier Allah to be among those who have Taqwa and also who basically Jonnie commit to the way of the process along the way of a setup is not just you're wrong, you're bigger that's that's one of 1000 But there is another 999 Part of it has to do with your Salah with your a bad or with your a HELOC with you and you have an Asana have also a method of dealing with those who they disagree with. And we believe that those who will disagree with based on the Leyland they had was
one fella forgive them. And so, so, this is like
a big topic cannot be like covered from every angle. But as I hope the message is clear, and you guys know a lot about efficient physical effects. You definitely know when you mentioned about
obviously we're talking about simplicity of it the if you talk to a general Muslim, the public have already moved them innately Subhan Allah. Now, of course, when you living in places like in the West, you come or you will come across so many different ideologies, whether it's from Muslims or non Muslims alike Subhanallah that when this happens, what tends to happen is people start to question their belief is this a lack of more knowledge of aqidah and as you mentioned, you know, you dive a bit deeper you open the books in a certain a new a new you learn more, how to defend yourself or defend your beliefs. Would you say that so?
I think the problem comes when people not
well established interrupted so they didn't invest in learning. Okay. Also it it sometimes it has to do with the lack of a strength of a bad yeah, and your connection with Allah is
And it's not about relying on yourself and how smart you are. So when you read in books, there is a lot of people who are very smart and the deviated and they left Islam and they became even atheists. There is a man is found that I went to visit him.
Hopefully I was hoping to see him before he died. His name Abdullah qassimi,
he used to live in Saudi Arabia before. And he wrote a book to refute the atheism and stuff like that. And they said that this book is the mod of our Herlin engine.
But this man ended up atheist. He left Islam went to France and stuff like that, and he left us and he wrote very bad books, reviewing Islam. And I heard that
he changed and he became back to Islam. So I went to visit him to see if he is a Muslim or not, at least to give him dollar shahada before he leaves. I couldn't he was so sick, he, his daughter didn't allow me to talk them. But anyway
going back to the point that what people basically this person became atheists because he was so arrogant. He even one of his books that when he was Muslim, he said that the knowledge that I have, that even prophets didn't have,
like are so smart above like the level of prophets and messengers is so arrogant.
But going back to the average Muslims, I said, this has happened because of the the buffer syllable like you think you're doing in your own. Now, I want you to be so strong with Allah's point that there is sometimes I don't have the answer for every question. But it doesn't mean I question myself.
Because I have, you know, inclined to have a concert up
Abubaker said that the process was that if he said it is true, even if I don't know how, even if I don't have an answer to explain it.
That's why you need what we call impossible or make no sense, you know, and like, little slang kind of language
are two types. Well, Montana and the data when Montana additon any, it is something that it is impossible, because itself impossible. It's impossible for something to be exist and not exist in the same time, inherently impossible. But there is things impossible because of that time, and the location and the situation, not inherently impossible. Any for example, it is impossible for someone
to speak here and to be heard in another place on the other side of city, and the same time.
That's 100 years ago.
But today you can.
But if you ask someone 100 years ago, it is impossible.
But now it is
100 years ago, it's impossible for someone to own the space.
Now it is possible. So it is not impossible, inherited impossible, inherently. It is because of the time the locations, you know, so that's that's important to understand. So, so many things in Sharia and some comes, maybe it's impossible for you to see now but it's not inherently impossible. It can happen it is the logic said possible. It can change. So don't rush to the Allah Subhana Allah has his own way of doing things. And there is nothing at all Sharia inherently impossible. That is nothing like that. He said there is nothing in Sharia ever will contradict an anglicized us like a sound logic 100% Never it's either that's not a sound logic or this is not from the Sharia
so that's part of our believers honestly there's a Don't let these doubts go to your heart I've been Tamia Rahim Allah said when you deal with the doubts Don't be like the sponge. Observe it then squeeze it out. Because when you squeeze it out there is something remain. Yeah. He said deal with the doubts because Sujatha like a bottle which is has glass
the doubt in sight. But no touch
you see it clearly through the glass but you're not affected by it. Don't observe it so all of this is good but no it's not good one always comes from a higher level and that's again part of our beat. Because the letter God make you connect to Allah make a last point on I know that a lot Hakeem and Ali I'm sure that this is the right thing. So
there is all talk about how people leave Islam and doubts and select young people telling me, I don't think the problem is how strong the doubts of our days are. I don't think there's the problem. I genuinely believe that I don't think the problem is because, you know, these are all these atheists who so scientists and scientists and smart and talk about and Dalits. And I don't think that's the problem, the problem, because in every generation, we had people like that we have doubts against them. I think the big difference that we see today, that Muslims today
they are in a certain level of ignorance of the routine, it's unbelievable.
And that's why a young Muslim is so burnable Oh, I have daughter was slumped and what do you know from his not knowing?
The wave of like, let's say the wave, the wave that comes it's strong.
But the problem is this wall is weak. So when the wave comes, that's why I think we need to invest more not to refute the doubts as much as we need to invest more into build a firewall, a resilient Muslims, who you know what? I don't know what that is. But I know it's not correct. I know Allah subhanaw taala is true. Building that update that
we've been doing right before
they told me a story about MIT's okay.
They're Bedouins so somebody will trying to trick them. They're hungry need medicine, there was something going into medicine. So somebody was like Hobby, can you He told him Oh, the medicine Jesus can bring in listen to you.
He's he said yet but you believe in him I believe in these things.
So they said they can convert them to Christianity said if you bring it to them when you be grateful to him, he absolutely will be very grateful. Yanni. So he said, Okay, he turned off the light. Turn on the light back on the medicine there. Yeah, just like Steve with old trick. It's old story.
Then they sent the medicine they said yes. Issa came and dropped it for you. Then these veterans
lie and I love
that just it's so embedded in it as you can take that. That's the belief that that is so deep at the heart. No matter what you try it just gonna go back to the simple bite. So that's the problem is today this is not what it does it
in a simple battle my kids sometimes when they see something I say the difference between the past and the Monat when my kids see something, they like what they say, Oh my God, no, not yet. Right? They say wow, wow. Wow. You know, anyone in my generation, we don't worry we don't do how we say Masha Allah.
it's so embedded in it Smilla out of Stanford, Allah subhanaw taala that's embedded on you. That's part of who you are. But unfortunately, today new generation are not raised this way.
They're not raised to have that strong connection with Allah. Strong believe in Allah. That's why any doubt can shake them.
And that's I think that's where we're mustards, educational organizations, Islamic schools role became crucial to protect the future of Muslims.
The second tip he mentioned talking about doubts, would the same be said in regards to you know, falling into haram and shimmy? You know, because people they don't have a strong connection to Allah they don't know they don't have that connection and process to Allah is the or seen the All Knowing they'll fall into haram or maybe they will they will result in to earning wrist in a halal haram way. Because they say, Look, I need to miss Juma up with this or
that. Is that would that fall into this as well as well as desired? So adults desires as well?
Yes, the general answer is yes.
At least to say a mouse here, but he did suffer. Okay, so one of the common statement that the scholar use, that the Massey is the sins are your gateway to go home? Because if you continue this path,
a lot of people might end up leaving Islam
complete and it can be very vulnerable to be because there's no connection to the last five sins
The worst thing about sin as the worst punishment of the sin and think about it,
when you sin, it means that you fall from Allah's eyes.
Because a lot of times not at that point, the non protective witness and he left it yourself
and it's so scary.
You hoons FBI nila, you're insignificant. It was one of those eyes, let's say left of yourself.
But when you make TA,
Allah he's the one who OPR he wants you to come. That means he wants you to come into the masjid his house you pray for them so he can hear your voice
that's in itself so honored.
But just leave yourself give her that's that's just so hard if you think about it.
And I'm not blaming him Allah said this is he swept up over the mountains in your home United last night.
And a crumb Shafer pa Now the best thing of pi that the last one that I honor you so for me when I look at the suns in like those white definitely it has to do with the weakness or with that you know that's why the aroma hammer Lawson example
when the thief stealing
and here movements and he gets scared the fear that happened in his heart from that sound is worse than the sin of stealing.
Why? Because that means he was he feared the honor of the the guard or the person in the house. He feared him more than Allah
so that's most that's worse than the sin of stealing
you know the sin of losing hope like that day one person's timing I have a sister she had a divorce problems I've talked to her husband about
child support and so that's I went to visit him is a restaurant I never saw in my community for so when I'm talking to CIF I'm going straight to hellfire.
I said why said I don't pray a drink so alcohol to deal with I'm gonna get your coffee, I'll wash the cup, I will make sure it's Hello.
I says it's okay. But I told him you know, one what's worse than all your sins is in what I said that you don't have hope and Allah
cannot parameter that's worse than all these things that you mentioned.
And that's part of your artifact, this particular upgrade. So I agree. But I just want to put a cap on to this. Because also,
I put the hat of the 40 that we will put we talk with the fifth rules. This Sharia is so beautiful. So mazing the perfect.
It has also sense of flexibility.
Like Sherry, I also recognize that you might fall into haram for certain circumstances and allowed certain violation to Dunfield at a greater benefit.
Yes, I do know that Allah is little zap and I believe in that. But still the *ty acid if somebody for example, has a job that it's hot. Like I'm doing something, it's not a lot. But I have a family I have a kids, they're gonna go on the street. I'm gonna be there now when nobody, nobody will ever tell you. Okay, quit because Allah was no was that Allahu Allah was up, you know, start looking for a job. And you know, stop purifying your money, but don't just quit today. Yeah, so the Sharia has a balance into this. So I just want to keep that because sometimes became like also more ideals, or idealistic and love, like kind of like an ideal world. No, that's why the Shediac is this way that I
felt away is a complete packet. We don't separate felt from up either from we look at holistically. So that's why when we say yes, this things, but we still say no and felt we allowed you to continue this job until you find another one. Oh, you know what, until you find another house and a Halliwell's, nobody will ever say you waste your money and just quit and every equity that you invested in the house because there's a mortgage. She said, No, we're not gonna give her to do that. And that will not contradict your update and your belief in the level of business. So I just want to make sure that we have that balance as well. Matt is basically for pointing out the sets of hung up.
You mentioned about the situation with the youth now, you know about the disconnect to going on Subhana wa Tada. How do we then you know
Create that reconnection because panel when we speak about, you mentioned earlier, if we've built all that either we're gonna study at the end of all this, you know, it's, you know, quote unquote, dry subjects, you know. So knowing what the knowing what I think there really is do read, then, you know, create, like,
I don't want to say beautified it, but make it more attractive to the youth. Or is there another way is another way, instead of just seeing a straightforward as is,
of two points on in regards to this number one is,
with the youth, if you have a jar of vinegar and soul ton, and you put a cucumber inside it, and you seal it,
what's going to happen to the cucumber is going to become what a pickle
would ever become an orange, wherever become a banana, no way, it's gonna be a pickle. So you put a young man in an environment, which is so corrupt, he's gonna be a pickle, there's not gonna be, you know, water rose is not gonna be like a banana, not gonna be an apple, he's gonna be a pickle, that's what you're gonna get. So make sure that you put your young man, your, your, your daughters, your sons in an environment that's clean, you will never be able to change the fact that it is a pickle, you're never gonna get anything else. So make sure that you put them in the right environment, right jar, you know, you're not going to control everything, but to a certain extent,
you have some control, especially in the early especially with the world of online. So make sure you surround your kids and your your kids with the good people. And when I say good people, I talk in general on my kids who have non Muslim friends, but you know, what? People respectful Adyen people who are like, in the sports people who are like, and just, you know, he has all our Muslim friends. You know, I look at the general sense of society and community, where do you live, but I'm talking about people, values, ambitions, you know, stuff like that.
And it's not an easy thing, by the way to find kids like this these days, surround your kids with, but at least Islamic schools and things like that helps a lot.
The other area is how we represent the dean to them, like the acne that even if it's a dry subject, how can I make it attractive? And then I will be talking because I'm president of a motor Institute, and I've been doing this for 20 years through my teaching there. That's one of the thing us and many other organizations start thinking about? How can I make a snob appeal to Western audience, you know, because it's not about English only, you know, I make a lot of funny mistakes in English, it's not that my first language, but I try my best to understand the culture of the language is more important for me to make sure that you relate to the, to the to the people who speaks that language.
And guess what kids today is like, it's very hard to keep up with, like my kids in elementary school, I have a kids in college, okay, I have like these generations. They don't understand each other. So I love it and you will meet understand all of you guys, the reference, jokes, points, languages, you know, you can different from one generation to another, like, six, seven years, and that's a new thing. You know, I'm like going to the aid, my son said, you know,
all us have dipped in us. Okay, thank you.
And I need to understand what that word means, you know.
So you have to know how to talk to them, you know, what's what's really makes sense to them, how to speak to them. And that's why it's so important for us to come with programs with come with ideas, we talk to them in a language that they can relate to, and just not preaching and lecturing and and make it a fun thing to do. And I remember in a model moment shooting Rahim Allah.
We used to think about, you know, we stopped Friday. On Friday, there's one of the movies released, we put for ourselves a standard, which is, I want to make sure that this high school kids or college kids will choose to come to the class over the movie.
When we start thinking this way, as a Muslim organization, we're going to win the youth
when we but Yuck, don't ever think that I will ever agree or promote or support that in this process.
We change the Dean
You know, and that's a big, big mistake. I remember when I first came to America, I was in a place and they saw boys and girls and teenagers like playing volleyball together mix. You doing things like I would have allows, like what in the world is this? And with the machine called the bareness toilet
how can you
use it? You're a noob in this country I said yes, I just came off the boat.
no, no, when you stay long you understand? I don't need to understand this. Hello.
You know and he said when he actually it's much better for it I'm far from it to date Akhmad and magic. Then today, John and
I said no, I think she should date John and Peter. He said how come I said at least to have one person corrupt
I have two people corrupted you could have the both of them. And he's like I said, I mean that's not right.
So I'm not talking about that but I'm talking about like we don't change the deen was still the rules. You know? That's what it comes where you come from my area you Toral tolerate and stuff like that. So I hope these two points became like a guidelines of how we deal with the Youth Day and a lot of traffic itself. It's a really big issue in power and we we striping insha Allah especially with the different things that the message is doing now way better.
So if you don't let me ask a question Yeah, I think it's also an issue of
I don't want to put the youth in a position where they have to choose between identities.
Like I grew up and
like let's say in America or in England, and I see myself part of the society
at least in certain areas in England like youth you know that family not very close to the community or for the master their youth
you you like it or not? You became a British like Janna, culturally stuff like that a lot of things and maybe in America we have that more but now I want to tell him that there is another ended identity which is being Muslims also or being Pakistanis or being Arabs or being Egyptians and stuff like that. A lot of youth we put them in that identity crisis
and it became where what am I and I became like, kind of I'm not fully there's not fully that and and I think it's so important for us at least in America that's one thing that I always tried to say that you can have multiple actually eight then you need to make a choice I can be an Egyptians and at the same times I'm a Muslim and I can be an Egyptians and dominium Arab I'm a Gyptian Muslims Arabs they have that as multiple like layer of what identify myself and I'm a student of knowledge and I'm I'm an American citizen I am American you know whatever I you know, I'm so the I am this, whatever the nationality was, yeah. I think to a certain extent there is because each one of them
have a different
identity identification to different parts of you. Human being isn't just one single things where many things. Religion is not the only thing makes us as human
robot is one component. That's why any you might have a Muslim but he's a monster.
He's a Muslim, but he's an angry person all the time. He's a grumpy person. But he's a Muslim. That's a personnel there's another angle of who you are as a human being. And that's why I always believe that it's so important to be a good human beings then you become a good muscle.
Yeah, Islam perfect you but you have to have that.
I like that good quality in you.
See, a Sahaba the Alonzo if you look at them, they're an amazing people.
when he was young, he became he Russell he ride horses. He's a knight he's an honor person. He has guest he does all this great. Then Islam came and perfected them.
You see I'm saying so it does. It's an interesting any thing to to look at it today. We want that also building a holistic building for this year. I hope that we don't have this as a crisis. It's nothing wrong with you being Irish or being you know, if that's where you are
As a race as a new Muslim, and nothing wrong with you being I see myself as a British I don't identify myself with any other culture today. That's fine. You know, as long as you stay a Muslim and Islam is that umbrella, Under this umbrella, it's allowed so many of these identities to be exist.
I think that's, in my opinion, one of the area that the youth need to feel comfortable, not multiple life, multiple faces, double standards. No, it's a consistent and it's easy. It's going, you know, I think it's important for parents to know how to manage that and thread that needle
in a good way, because sometimes, I don't think yourself, American are better you're this you're Egyptian you are. It doesn't work this way, especially when it comes to cultural blends.
Marriage Divorce and stuff like that. Yeah, no, Chef, this is an absolutely an excellent point that you make in Powell, I remember being with brothers, who were starting to practice the deen. And they may have lived their life where they was involved in sin, whatever. But
even within that time of their life, there were still some good qualities about them.
So what they did was they they dropped certain personalities, to, you know, the coming on honey, I don't know, more, quote, Islamic, you know,
from what they see people do, you know, whether it's, you know, found on the face or stern or, and they never used to be this type of person, you know, over there, someone who just always, you know, showing the Zoho dinos always bombing you know, wants to shying away from and they never meet, it never used to be these people. So what ended up happening is they would start to it would become too tough to keep up the act, you know, it will become too tough to keep the acts of whether to search for. So what it means is that when your Eman is high, you're acting a certain way. And then when you mind this low, you resorting back to, you know, what you would call your usual personality. Yeah,
yeah. See, after everybody, there's a verse in the Quran. For me I take it as one of the guide guidelines. Allah says about those who commit to the religion what would happen first into your pseudo holy user?
Yeah, and he will make it easy for him to have an easy life.
Anytime you practice the religion and you feel you're not an ease there is something wrong in your practice.
If you feel Islam have put you in a tight like not there's no comfort no ease, let me there's something wrong
you will be tested but that's different than even when you test it on an ease but if there is like that means your understanding of the knowledge is wrong. Like sometimes people ask me a question
Who told like somebody was having a fight with a school high school kid a fight and the principal sent me a letter and the master has told me that why this gets so difficult things why because he think coffee is must and the principles he cannot work over and he said my religion rights and he became a civil rights issue.
I said Yeah, who told you this you have to wear a COVID in Islam all the time or to have a hat in your
you maneuver Yanni if you say mama maybe but yeah Annie even hat is like and I'm sorry I don't know where I don't know where this I had started like is definitely is done but pass on time you know
but I was like why you put yourself so difficult that's something along and your understanding of it
somebody like became Muslim as a child my back hurts. I said okay, why are you coming to me go to doctor he said no chef I
asleep sleep on the floor.
I said okay, this is because I know it's now on my wife is a convert and we end this as we know this and please look can we get a bed it needs it allowed putting himself in so much difficulty and this real question that's real scenario, by the way. And I made up story. And I said do you know that the velana bed
Oh, I thought he sleeps Yeah, yeah, it's sometimes even the floor but also that a bed can save Salas
Oh, I didn't know that. So I'm just in general guidelines. If you feel that things so difficult, not working for you because of the religion that is something wrong and your understanding of it, will it go ask someone of knowledge and he will explain to you because I
Allah told us that the more we commit the more is live become even in the time of difficulties for in malice, which bad math with the difficulty that is ease What do you live comfort and ease and turn quality and say and that's why any given time era ham Allah said something very, very profound he said, anytime you do a bad and you don't feel the sweetness of it for enamel accom and hood
there must be something wrong and you're a bad
if you pray and you feel zero feeling there's something about either your class or metabo you're not doing according to the sunnah or there's something in your sincerity and what's in your heart when you're praying otherwise if you have these two you must see the result of it
so I think these will help to ease a little bit the situation here Michael certainly knows panel talks about a lot of things from Linda you know as leader and it's a belief to doubts and desires and and talking about the youth
idea appreciate your time coming in and having this podcast I know it's not you know you've had many podcasts, masha Allah,
Masha Allah and I appreciate you in you asking me a question that's actually been a first on this show.
Having to do that, let me see if we could summarize you had a message to conclude the session he shot Latina please follow. Inshallah, well, this is like any, we start talking about the okay that I have a message for all Muslims who hear me.
It is so important to focus on building principles and foundations. If you look at anyone who called revivalist and wanted to do you look that what make them Majid and revivalist and the major contributor is there focus on the principles
not on the small details here and there? What will unify us as a Muslim are these principles are the we're not going to be unified around the person about madhhab about one filter issues, we're not gonna we're never going to be unified on this. We're going to be only unified as Muslim around principles about the correct we want to be unified in a way in other than what Allah said the Quran about the people he criticized decibel home, Jimmy and Okolloh, boom shut, you see them altogether, but their beliefs are different. That's not us us themselves. We want a unity that based on this principle, and what can unify the Viva Kelly motto? hadiah susto hadal Kadima, the Karima have to
hate it was well make them hate anything unify the muscles, the corrector Akita, the principles of karate, that will give a strong foundation for you to face these changes that happen around you these foundations and update them principle and actually the more you believe the more you connect yourself with Allah the more you anchor yourself with the Sunnah of the Prophet Salah Salem with what are in the Quran is in the simple clear, you know, the more you do that,
the more you're protecting from the change that happened to them. And believe it or not,
the change can happen very quickly.
And he was telling that song with a brother yesterday
that's a prophet, living with them as not just a prophet, a prophet to Allah talks them will ask them not also and Vinny is slightly not only Musa Musa and heroine. And those people have been alienated not like federal righteous and are bad and student of knowledge among them and like any other community and our and guess what Allah subhanaw taala honor them and did what he did to them. Then Musa alayhis salam just left
for about 14 days, six days.
What happened to them?
They start worshipping an agent
or shoving a calf, an idol going from the to heat in a matter of any a few weeks. From toe hate. They go to the Shirke I read it last night.
It's an all the story of Venezuela, el Ana mentioned to us so we can learn from it and even Ambassade we are so similar to the Jews, I suppose now Nessman I don't know if we're going to worship Catholic them or not. As long as I'm not sure if we're going to ever have a count to worship. But the point is, if this can happen to them
and haven't do anyone else. That's why Ibrahim Ali Salam said, What do you know bunny? Why Benny a Naboo that Osnap protect me and my children from about at the last night from worshipping Ibrahim the Imam, and who's his children.
And I'm used as a mind. I, his children are prophets and messengers. Yet he's worried about that's why Ibrahim Tamia is a great mom among the 1300 women yet mineral better by divine. Ibrahim is worried about shirk, who can feel safe.
And Allah Subhana Allah says also Mattia, when he brought his children and they are also who they are, he doesn't matter. We're gonna make wooziness worship. This is a little Kumbaya. And I'm saying this because a lot of Muslims specially American Muslims, we take Islam for granted. So our towhead is Sundar, I never really needed my father to talk to me about Allah Zois had and Allah is this a worship and Allah, it's so clear to me, but your children does not the case. Your youth another case, it's so easy to forget about the to hate to forget even you it's easy to forget is to check your foundation. If you don't pay attention to it if you don't protect it, if you don't listen to
talk that has to do with strengthening your relationship with Allah, loving Allah, respecting Allah depending on Allah subhanaw taala you know, believing and submitting yourself to Him Subhanallah to honor and to believe in His names and attributes the weight came in the lesson that's the essence of ALLAH hobby. That's unnecessary when you knew your grave will ask him and your logbook Robbie Allah that's how I know him. So I think this is an issue is this is like a very very fundamental issues for every man and woman to focus on and unfortunately today this kind of shy away from teaching to hate teaching up in the classes you don't see as much you know any bit regardless okay is the lead
the gold and became like so
ridiculous that like, like to level that even clear things that completely contradict Islam. And it became all maybe two opinions maybe with Rachel
Hollis Well, where are we going to draw a line? I do believe that you should be friend and nice with everyone. But in the same times everyone know where the right and wrong ytterbium middle button the right the falsehood from truth, Yanni that's our obligations, malice, Python to help us and make us a tool of unify people around the truth and make us able to benefit the Ummah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
has been absolutely privileged as I keep repeating the
exact procedures as mine and I'm very happy to be here with you guys. And I'm looking forward for shallot beautiful two days left guys have been asked whether by the way these days nice Houston is where I came from it is hot.
