About this episode

One of the most disturbing matters that is on the rise in the Muslim ummah is the predominance of strange, unorthodox and heretical interpretations of Islam. It roots from random people who without any training in Islam plant bizarre understanding of the Qur’an and of our traditions in the minds of the masses. This not only goes against the mainstream beliefs of our faith but also serves as the stepping stone to deviation from Islam itself. You tend to lose track of the content since the person has mesmerized you not because of the content but because of the style and the rhetoric which simply serves as an example to what the Prophet ﷺ said that some speeches are magic.

The Prophet ﷺ said, “Near the establishment of the Hour there will be days during which (religious) knowledge will be taken away (vanish) and general ignorance will spread.” [Bukhari]

In this short khutbah, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi summarizes three fundamental points that will enable you to counter any preacher or any eloquent radical person who might be mesmerizing, but the message doesn't meet these principles.
