Shaykh Yasir Qadhi advises the Muslim Ummah to stick to mainstream Islam and avoid mingling with fringe cults, radical movements or anything which is against the bulk of the Muslim Ummah.

What do the mainstream Islam supporters believe in? They believe in the Qur’an, the Sunnah and in respecting the Sahaba. Anyone who tries to find a new cult, radically trying to interpret the faith and preaching it which is against the classical belief that existed from 1400 years is definitely misguiding the Ummah.

stick with the mainstream masses of Islam. The mainstream Ummah is upon guidance and good. Don't go to the fringe cults don't go to the radical movements don't go to that which is against the bulk of the oma. Why? Because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yeah de la he either Gemma Allah has hand meaning Allah's mercy and the last blessings is upon the group of Muslims and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, have been magic, my alma shall not agree upon misguidance. So when you see differing, then go to the saddle album, or some other album means the big masses go to the big masses and follow them, which means what the mainstream of the oma shall always be rightly guided.

00:01:20--> 00:02:01

And what do the mainstream believe they believe in the Quran, they believe in the sun that they believe in respecting the Sahaba This is the mainstream belief, anyone who comes and he founds a new cult, a new understanding, radically reinterpreting the faith. Who is this person to come and radically change Islam after 14 centuries? Who are you exactly? Where was this understanding? for 1400 years, anyone who preaches a radically new understanding that is not found in the classical sources, that is not the mainstream interpretation, something is wrong. And brothers and sisters, this is a logical corollary of the belief that Mohammed sysm is the final prophet. How so? If

00:02:01--> 00:02:42

prophets Allah listed as the final prophet, which we believe, and the reason why Allah said previous prophets was to correct the misguided peoples of those nations. Now, there's not going to be any more profit. This means that the owner of the profit system cannot go misguided, because there's not going to be a profit to come correct them afterwards. This means the owner of the Profit System, by and large, has to be correctly guided. Otherwise, who is going to correct all of them, there's not going to be another prophet. And this is historically what we have seen. The Masters of the oma have always been upon the Quran and the Sunnah, and respecting mainstream Islam. This is what we believe

00:02:42--> 00:03:24

in hamdulillah. So my point is that anytime you find a radically new person, forget the hype. Forget the mesmerizing speech. Look at the content. Is this person affirming the Quran in its entirety? believing in the Sunnah overall? Are they coming from the traditional understanding of Islam? Yes, you can always fine tune Yes, legal aspects can be fine tuned, but theology will not change. Belief does not change from time to time and place to place, the mainstream foundations of Islam will not change. So anybody who comes and tries to do something of this nature, then this person has effectively said everybody was misguided in the oma until I came along, and I have discovered this

00:03:24--> 00:03:50

truth, which effectively makes him a prophet and there are no profits after the Prophet sallallahu it was seldom the Quran. It is the simple clear Book from Allah believing it beginning to end. The Sunnah of the Prophet system is a necessary part of our tradition. And by and large the Sunnah has been preserved and follow the masses of the Muslims follow the majority of Muslims don't follow exotic strange heretical fringe movements. They will always be wrong.
