00:00:20--> 00:00:57

Muhammad Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in why the Adi he was off be a Jemaine and my bad. So today's topic is actually a continuation of something we did many, many months ago about the reality of jinn. And you had received the email that please watch that before you come to this because we don't want to repeat. So for those of you who are who haven't seen that, please it is online, it is on YouTube. And it's called the reality of jinn by myself. So if you can just YouTube that Google that, or find it, listen to that lecture, we would have hoped you would have listened before you come now that you're here, I can't tell you to, to

00:00:57--> 00:01:34

leave and come back. But Inshallah, I'm not going to be repeating much of what we did in the other one, which is the reality of jinn. And that is, because the topic of Sahara is actually intrinsically related to that of jinn the to go hand in hand, you cannot have to hit without understanding what gin are. And therefore, it's impossible to understand the reality of sale without understanding the reality of gin. So, there is so much to talk about Wallahi, that even one lecture will not do justice. And it's very likely that this part two will actually be, you know, part two of maybe a part three and four, it might actually move on later on, because there's too much to discuss

00:01:34--> 00:02:18

in even more, shall we have a long lecture today, but still, it's too much to discuss in one lecture. So let us begin the what I'm going to be doing at the beginning, is we'll just define quickly what is said linguistically, and then move on to two of the main stories in the Quran about two of the main stories in the Quran about Sahara. And then based on these two stories, we'll extract what is some of the benefits and realities of Sahara. And we began by talking about what is a Sahara linguistically, linguistically, Sahara means that which is hidden, that which is hidden, that which we don't understand why or it is covered. So that is why in Arabic, you call the darkness

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

of the night. What do you call it? Oh, Arabs.

00:02:22--> 00:03:04

Sahara, right? Because it's dark, you don't know what is happening. And that's why when you eat at that time of the night, it is called soil, right? Because you're eating at the darkness of the night. So the term for soil or Saturday we call it an odor is actually from the same root as say, air, not because there's any Sahara in Soho, but because Soho is eaten at a time of darkness. So it's the darkness is called Sahara. And that darkness means you don't know what's happening. That's why it's called darkness, Sahara. So Sahara means that which takes place and you don't know why it's taking place, the cause is unknown. This is really what the linguistic meaning of Sahara is, and

00:03:04--> 00:03:08

from a theological from an Islamic standpoint, say had is to

00:03:10--> 00:03:51

invoke the aid of the jinn to do something that appears to be from our world supernatural. So the jinn will cause something to happen. And because we do not see the gin, so it seems as if we don't understand, even though once we understand the hair, we do understand how it happens. But from those who for those who don't study Islamic theology, it will appear How did this happen? Where did this come from? And that is why it is called sale. Now there are two main stories that we're going to concentrate on before we get to the the meat of the matter. And these stories are introductions to the reality of sale. And both of them are Quranic stories about sale.

00:03:52--> 00:04:41

The first of them is the story of what is the most famous story of magic in the Quran. Musa the most famous story of magic in the Quran deals with Musa and there are multiple narrations in the Quran, multiple ayat I should say about the reality of magic and some of them for example, Allah Subhana Allah says that what occurred Urena, who at an Akula we showed for our all of our signs for Canada, but what about all the tena, the gentlemen of the universe Zedekiah Musa, surround said that oh Musa, have you come to drive us out of our land through your magic Falana Deanna Kirby's set had a Mythili he we shall bring a magic just like yours. Fun Annette dn nicob is set had admitted he

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

fragile been an hour Bina come over Eden. So let us set a time that we both agree to fetch Albanian Omega Komori then let's set a time that we will both come together and we will invite the people sure all of them will come together to see what we are doing. So most

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

sell sell on, Yahoo, Xena, your appointment will be on the day of festivities, they must have had an IED. They must have had some major celebration coming up. So Musa said, the very day that everybody is going to be coming together yomo Xena, that is the day we are going to have our showdown. I'm going to bring what I have, and you will bring what you have. And the people will be all over. They're harder, more ad hominem was zenity. Were on your show, a nurse will do have and let the people gather at the time of Doha, which is early morning 9am 10am. At that time, they will all gather together for Gemma alQaeda, who from Sofia round gathered together his lands, and he his

00:05:43--> 00:06:09

plans excuse me, and he came and he came back now this is sort of poor Hi, I'm calling you and so to our off, Allah tells us that what it should do. And also in Suez, this sort of either which or which other sort I'm not remembering right now. But Allah azza wa jal tells us what did for round do for our own set for ourself, get out of that in your hash it in the round sent criers throughout all of Egypt. What were these Christ supposed to do?

00:06:11--> 00:07:01

Bring Bhikkhu Lisa had an ally and bring forth every knowledgeable side, not just a mediocre side. He wanted the cream of the crop. He wanted the experts to come for me I saw her all over the Sahara came in this is in the palace of fear down. This isn't the palace of fear down. And it is understood from the story that the magicians would have concocted amongst themselves. They're planning they're getting together their magic and the magician say to fit around in Atlanta agilon In Conan annual Halloween, are we going to get some prize if we win? So the magician's even though they are talking to the most powerful man alive, they want to know what's in it for us, what are we going to get? And

00:07:01--> 00:07:19

so around says, yes, indeed, you will get some prize and you shall be eliminated more carabin I will make you close to me meaning there might be more opportunities later on. So if you pass this, you will get what you want and you will get a high position. Now this is not the sort of thought this isn't sort of

00:07:20--> 00:07:44

pseudo Talmud and also in sorted out off so we get back to school of thought that now the magician has come in front on one side is the magician on one side is Musa alayhis salam. And then Musa says to the magicians, whaler Camilla tough tarantula, he can even for us hater can be either walk or the harbor man if Tara Woe to you do not lie against Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

So Musa accuses the magician's of being a fraud.

00:07:51--> 00:08:20

So Musa says you're lying. And don't lie right in front of Allah and lie against Allah as if you have some powers. So Musa accuses the magicians of being frauds. This is an important point here, you're not real. You're pretending to have something you don't have. And you don't actually have it. And so Musa says, Fear Allah, you're lying right in front of Allah about Allah meaning as if you have some super human or divine powers, you don't have them. And

00:08:21--> 00:08:30

the magician's gathered together and they said, Who which one of us is going to go first? Which one of us is going to be first so

00:08:31--> 00:09:18

Musa said, but I'll call you go ahead and do what you want. But Alko so for Al Cohiba homeowners to your home, the magician's through their sticks and their ropes for Alico, Habibullah, whom were so young, they threw their sticks and the ropes, walk all over, visited for our international hollobone and they said bye, there is a frown, we are going to win. So they did not invoke Allah. There's another point the magicians never invoke Allah. The Magicians invoked someone other than Allah. And in this case, they're invoking a false god. Because what did fit I would say he is fair and said he is God Himself. So they invoked a false god. And so Allah azza wa jal says that, and this isn't just

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

out off for alcohol, Barnum was no certain of Allah azza wa jal says,

00:09:25--> 00:09:31

Mr. Hanna, what is the Arabic tell you not to tell you I'm forgetting the Arabic here. They

00:09:34--> 00:09:59

who yell at him and say him Anahata saya they made it appear from their magic as if the ropes were moving as if the ropes were moving. So another word Allah says so how do you in a nurse they be which the eyes of the people. So this shows us that at some occasions, not all of them, magic is not act

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

To the real, it's an illusion. Because according to the ayat, the robes were not moving.

00:10:07--> 00:10:18

So how are you in a nurse, they be which the eyes of the people. And in another verse, they made it appear through their magic that the ropes were wiggling.

00:10:19--> 00:11:01

And therefore the ropes were not actually wiggling, the ropes were not moving. The magic was in to make it appear as if they were moving. And by the way, this is street magic. It's very basic magic. Because remember, what what did Musa do? The Musa converted his staff to an actual snake? Right? This is what he did a real life snake. And for Alan saw this, and the minister saw this But these weren't the magicians, the magicians didn't see the initial miracle. So the magicians are told he can make his staff appear like a snake. So the magician says No worry, we can do the same, so don't worry. So the magician is plotted and planned. And the magician said we can also do this. So they

00:11:01--> 00:11:56

threw their ropes and they didn't actually forget converting them to snakes. The robes didn't even move. But the Sahara made it appear to the eyes of the people that that they had moved. So when Musa saw all of these ropes moving around, he himself became worried can I match this or not? For Oh Josephine up see if he further Musa So Musa himself became scared for images we put in a ton of inner content. So this shows us that magic is so powerful, that perhaps even believers in Allah and prophets can feel trepidation at it. Musa knows it's not true. He doesn't believe in the magic, but it is so powerful that he himself was wondering, can I match it or not? Right? So for Oh, Josephine

00:11:56--> 00:12:04

FC FIFA Musa Khulna Allah took off in the cantle Allah, Allah said, don't worry, you are going to win.

00:12:05--> 00:12:19

Well, I will say mafia meanie cartel cough mouse on a row, go ahead and throw what is in your hands. It shall swallow up and destroy what they have done. And so when Musa threw his staff

00:12:21--> 00:12:48

it didn't just pretend to wiggle. It became a massive live Python or whatever a massive snake. It became a living, breathing snake. Now, the most amazing thing happens we all know that when the Sahara saw this live snake, instantaneously for Olia, Sahara to Sujatha.

00:12:49--> 00:12:52

All Armineh Bureau be Haruna Musa,

00:12:53--> 00:13:40

the magician's who are the experts in this craft, when they see what Musa is coming with, they realize this is not magic. This is the real deal. And that is the creation of life. And so from being the worst of the worst, they convert to the best of the best. And fear around is of course humiliated. Can you imagine? These are the creme de la creme of the whole Egyptian society of magicians, right? And by the way, the art of magic reached one of its Zen, it's in the time of ancient Egypt, ancient Egypt was immersed in magic instead. And can you imagine, it is my hypotheses and Allah knows best, but I can't see anything else happening that would have done this. It is my

00:13:40--> 00:13:51

hypotheses that never in the history of humanity, have such a large group of magicians, actual Sahara collaborated together for a project

00:13:52--> 00:14:37

of such a high quality even because Egypt was known for its magic. And generally speaking, Sahara don't cooperate together, just like you know, the mafia, whatever, they don't cooperate, each one is happy with what he's doing. And they don't want to cooperate. Now they have a higher power around who's willing to pay them big bucks to cooperate. So he gets the team of the best specialists in the world of a society that is known to this day to have excelled in sales. And they are all cooperating. And so this is what they can bring forth. And lo and behold, in front of him around the height of humiliation, they all reject Pharaoh, and they say we believe in the God of Musa and so

00:14:37--> 00:14:40

founders only what he can do, which is a tyrant, he says, I'll kill you all.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

And look at the image of these people literally in one second, how it has gone from where to where, in one second. They said law boil. Go ahead, do what you want, because this is the real God who has done this and we're going to go

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

back to him, and we have to believe in the rub of Musa Frauen says little Sally Bender confused you do a knuckle? I'm gonna crucify you on date palms. Well, that's either Munna and you're gonna see who amongst us is the more powerful. And so they said loudly in neither have been among collarbone Go ahead in the end of the day, we're gonna go back to him and not you, our souls will go back to him and not you. So what this really shows us is that magicians and magic is some type of illusion that in reality, magic does not cause something which is supernatural. Now I'll explain this don't miss under don't just you know under misunderstand me, what the midget what Sorry, what the jinns do

00:15:47--> 00:16:28

what the magicians do is something that might appear supernatural to us. But in reality, it is not competing with Allah's power. Anything that the jinn and the magicians do is something that is utterly trivial, compared to the actual power of Allah subhanaw taala. And once we understand what said and jinn is, then Wallahi we're not going to be scared of it at all. And one of the goals of this class and every time I teach this, I say this, one of the goals of teaching you what is the reality of it is when you study it, you will no longer be that terrified of it, you will be as terrified of it as you are of some type of, you know, maybe a snake or a predator or something like

00:16:28--> 00:17:05

this, it's going to be a natural fear. And it's not going to be something that is, oh, I don't understand it. It's Supernatural. And that fear insha Allah cannot come from the heart of actual believer. So we learn from the story of Musa that there is something called Sahel, and one type of Sahel is to be willed or the eyes of the people. Now this doesn't mean that Sahara is never something that can happen. That's actual maybe another type of scenario can cause it to move. Now one can say what's the big deal of causing a rope to move, this seems to be very trivial. The big deal was not in the rope moving, the big deal was in bewildering and bewitching the eyes of millions

00:17:05--> 00:17:42

of people. That's the quantity of sale that was done. That indeed, some type of say head is more powerful than causing a rope to move. In reality, some types of say head is more powerful than causing a rope to move. But what was powerful about this group was they they did a mass illusion, over hundreds and 1000s Maybe millions of people, and that was the power that they had, but they couldn't actually create real life. So when they saw real life instantaneously, they accepted Islam. The second story is actually more relevant to us and that is story of Solomon. That is the story of Solomon.

00:17:43--> 00:18:24

This is sorta Bacara verse 102. And this is the most explicit reference to say that in the whole Quran, and that's why we need to discuss it in detail. This is the most explicit reference to say it in the Quran, that Allah subhana wa Taala says whatever Omata through shayateen or Allah Maliki Suleiman wa Monica for us Philemon was back in the shelter in a car photo you Isley moon a nurse a Sarah one that was it Alan Molokini be Babita how router my route warmer your aluminum and I hadn't had tire Cola in them and I know Pfitzner to further attack for fire to moon I mean Huma Maou for record maybe he banal Marie was LG Walmart home build or Rena behemoth had an Elizabeth Nila where

00:18:24--> 00:18:39

talamona your dorm room Walla Walla Valley moolah Manish Tarahumara of academia holla what a bit summer Shadowbane for some locanto Yeah, the moon I recited the whole verse because it is very, very important and we will spend a good solid 15 minutes just on this first

00:18:40--> 00:19:26

breaking it up and I'm trying to understand what each phrase says what tabber Omatsu shayateen or Anna Maliki Sulayman. So it is Surah Al Baqarah verse 102. And make sure you write this down and go back and read it in context. Now, the verse before this if ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says that they would throw away the book of Allah, they throw away the book of Allah subhanho wa taala. And they instead of following the book of Allah, what did they follow? So Allah says wallum Magia aamra Zulu man and delight Masada Colima, ma home number Jeffery Amendola Dino to GitHub, GitHub, Allah wa elbowed him. When the book came with the Prophet they knew they threw away this book behind their

00:19:26--> 00:19:59

backs, and they rejected the Prophet even though they knew that this is the profit. So they did not follow the book, what did they follow? What about uma Tatsu shayateen. Instead of following the book of Allah, they followed that which the shayateen recited during the time of Sulaiman. Is that clear so far? Right? Instead of following the Quran, they followed the recitations of the shayateen during the time of Sulaiman. Okay, what is this recitation of shayateen what were the Shelton recite

00:20:00--> 00:20:41

Ting, we have many opinions. But to summarize, there's like four or five, and I have all of them here, but no need to go into opinion one opinion two and three, what appears to have been the case is that the jinns and the shayateen, during the time of Sulaiman, or maybe after his death, maybe right after his death is another opinion. They claim to have the knowledge of Sulaiman or according to one interpretation, they claim to have discovered the secrets of Solomon. Now pause here, what secrets of Solomon how he controlled the jinn and the animals, how he controlled the gin and the animals. Now, I don't need to tell you maybe I do need to lay I don't know, we all should know,

00:20:42--> 00:21:24

those of us that have studied a little bit of Islam, that Sunni Man was given something that nobody else was given. We know this. So an Imam was given something that no other prophet was given, no other person was given. And that's what they do. Ah, he made to Allah. Rob. They have Hubli Moulton liability, I had him embody, Oh Allah, give me a power Mulcair doesn't just mean a kingdom, it means the power the mu key the kingdom or the control that no one after me will have. So Allah says because of his dua, we gave him the power of the wind for Sahana Huria. Right. Does you be able to work on hydro salt, we're Shayateen we gave him the power of the shayateen and in other verses, we

00:21:24--> 00:21:48

gave him the power to speak to animals. So the animals will show to the city manager noodle hymnal Ginny will ensue what Boyd and all of the armies of Solomon from the jinn and the ins and the birds all of these are armies of Solomon. So so the man was given the power to control the jinn. Okay, and even the animals and the wind. It is said that after Suleiman died,

00:21:49--> 00:21:55

or according to an opening even while he was alive, the shayateen claimed to have unlocked his power.

00:21:56--> 00:22:03

What was the power according to the shayateen, the shayateen said Soloman knows black magic.

00:22:04--> 00:22:51

So he is controlling the jinn through Syria, through black magic. So Allah is saying, this group of people in the time of the process alum rejected the Quran, and instead they followed the ramblings of the shayateen during the time of Sulaiman. Then Allah defends Sulaiman wa Monica for Sulayman. Sola Eman did not commit gopher Wallach in the shayateen, aka photo, rather, it was the shayateen who committed Cofer. Now the verse is very difficult to understand without context. So I will take a step back and simply explain everything. So though to understand the verse insha, Allah will tell the story goes as follows. And this is one interpretation, but again, the art we don't have the time

00:22:51--> 00:23:02

to go into various interpretations. It is said that during the time of Sulaiman for six months or longer, the jinn somehow managed to

00:23:04--> 00:23:06

get rid of Solomon temporarily.

00:23:07--> 00:23:29

This is one of the Israelis yet and many Muslim scholars also accept this opinion, that somehow they managed to catch him at a time of neglect or whatever. And they managed to get him off the scene. And they started slandering and spreading rumors about him so that people lose respect for Salima, and of the things that they said was that Solomon is a magician,

00:23:30--> 00:23:50

and that he controls the jinn through Sahara. And Allah says some of the modern you who would believe this as well. And there instead of following the Quran, they're following these ramblings of the shayateen. Then Allah defends Sulaiman, Soloman was not a Kaffir while Maka Farah Suleiman.

00:23:51--> 00:24:38

This shows us that practicing magic and believing in it makes you a kafir because the jinns accused Soloman of being a magician, not to being a Kaffir. And Allah defended Solomon by saying he didn't say Solomon was not a magician. Rather, Allah said Solomon did not commit Cofer, and from this, the scholars have derived that practicing magic and believing in magic is disbelief in Allah. Clear, right? Because Allah defenders to demand from Cofer Wanaka Farah Solomon, Solomon did not commit Cofer. Rather, it was the shayateen who committed Cofer, how did they commit cool for you? I'll the moon and NASA Sahara, they were the ones teaching mankind sir. So what is the origin of Sahara?

00:24:38--> 00:24:59

shayateen? Teaching men not Sulaiman? Soleimani did not control the jinns through magic. How did Soleimani control the jinns Allah gave him the power Allah subjugated the jinn not magic. So what do the magicians do? Then? You have the moon and NASA Sahara warmer on Zilla al mela cainy Be Babita how Ruta wama

00:25:00--> 00:25:01

route. And

00:25:02--> 00:25:40

these people are also following Walmart when Zita Allah Merkin, they're also following what was revealed to the two angels in Babel. Babel is Babylon. And these two angels are called how route and Mao route. Now pause here. So this idea is a very dense ayah. So much information is packed in it. So we have to go bit by bit. So let's pause here. What is Babin? And what is how route and my route, there are, again, a number of opinions. Some of them go back to what the Jews and Christians say. And we find it in our literature as well. And unfortunately, we some of our scholars have narrated this and this is not true. But I will tell you that opinion, because you will find it in almost

00:25:40--> 00:26:21

every book of Tafseer. This opinion goes back to a biblical story. The biblical story is known to some of us. And it's very known, it's very common amongst the our Christian neighbors. They all know the story because it's a standard part of the Bible, that apparently according to the Bible, to angels, mocked the existence of man and said, look at men how evil they are. And we can do a better job. So Allah, apparently allegedly, we don't believe the story said to these angels. If I were to make you men and send you down and give you the temptations of men, what do you think you will do? So they said, Oh, we will do a much better job, we would be worshippers we would not do any sin. So

00:26:21--> 00:26:59

according to the legend, Allah sent to angels in the form of men, and they were men, ie, they were transformed into men, and they were called How to attend mount route. And then they saw a beautiful lady and they could not control themselves. And so they committed all of the sins and Zina and shut up and everything they committed. So this is how routes and mount route and according to the Bible, or according to the Israeli Israeli yard, they were transformed into some type of star as a punishment and they're being punished. And that star we see according to the Israeli traditions is actually punished the the angels being punished now. Unfortunately, this the star is the Venus star.

00:26:59--> 00:27:29

And it's not even a star it so the point is that we find this story and it's not in the Quran. And it's not in the Sunnah of the Prophet SAW Selim. Rather this is a story that is found in biblical literature, and some of our scholars have taken it and unfortunately, you find it there, but there's no basis for it. So we don't believe that any angel was transformed to a human. But the Quran clearly says two angels came down. And these angels were called How to 10 mile route and they came to the city of

00:27:30--> 00:27:50

Babylon, Wilma on Zillow al Molokini bobbin. And what was revealed to the two angels at Babin Babylon and these two angels how route and my route. Okay, so what was revealed to these two angels in bourbon? Firstly, where's bobbin? Where's Babylon, Iraq, Iraq, and how ancient is Babylon?

00:27:53--> 00:28:06

It is said to be the most ancient city. There was no city before the city of Babylon to that level. The first real civilization was Babylon. So we are going back pre Ibrahim.

00:28:08--> 00:28:43

We're going back to the earliest of times, way before Musa way before Suleiman. So Allah is telling us when did magic begin? This is the story. Allah is telling us the origins. What is said, Walmart when Zilla al Molokini, Babila Haruto and these Yahoo's are following what was revealed to the two angels of Babylon. These were called how roots and murdered what was revealed to these two angels. So a number of opinions here. And really, there's only two opinions that I think are plausible. And the rest, I'll just ignore

00:28:45--> 00:28:59

the first opinion that I think is plausible, there are more than two again, but these are the two that I think have some legitimacy. The first opinion is as follows that Allah sent down to angels

00:29:00--> 00:29:22

with the knowledge of how to control or access the jinn, which is magic. And the angels were sent to the city of Babylon. And the angels were allowed to teach anybody who wanted to study with them, the quote unquote, art of magic, but the angels also can't claim with a big disclaimer.

00:29:23--> 00:29:37

And that disclaimer was in no manner, no fits and atone fanatic for the angel said to anybody who came to them, we are a test from Allah. So do not commit Cofer by studying with us.

00:29:38--> 00:29:59

Yet, if somebody insisted they taught him, is that clear. So the angels are a test. And they say they're a test, and they only teach somebody after they tell them if you study this, you will become a kafir but they were still there. So Allah says fire to Allah Munna mean Houma. The people studied from the two of them, ma you've heard recorded

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

he'd been a mother it was odd that which would cause a husband and wife to fall apart to have problems and whatnot. And 100 Barbarina be him and I had him elaborate nila, they could never harm anybody. unless Allah willed it. Magic is not more powerful than Allah. If Allah wants to he can prevent it. So they're not going to harm anybody except if Allah has willed it. And were to ilm, when Mr. yourhome wala, and Pharaoh whom they studied that which only harms them and there is no benefit. So magic has zero benefit. Unlike alcohol. Allah says Hamid has some benefit. Karma has some benefit is in the Quran. But the harm outweighs the benefit. As for Sahara, there's no benefit.

00:30:42--> 00:30:43

It's only evil.

00:30:44--> 00:31:25

And while aka The Alamo, and the angels taught or told them in lemon Ishtar, or whoever got this knowledge from them, Mala who fill 30 mil holla. UK, they would have no share of the next world. You can literally purchase this world at the expense of the next wall a bit summer shall be and Fusa home, and what an evil price they sold themselves for Low Can We are the more if they only understood. So this is the first opinion that the angels taught the reality of Sahara. Now what is the relevance? Here we'll come to in around 15 minutes for Sharla. What is the reality Sara be patient upon me, we'll get there. But the angels taught them how to commit to her. And the angels

00:31:25--> 00:32:10

claim with a disclaimer. If you study this, you're not a Muslim, and Allah has sent us to test you. But obviously the people of Babylon insisted, and they studied it. So those who studied it became the first magicians of this humanity. And all magic that is existent today somehow goes back to Babylon, through their own is nuts. And they are different modalities of magic as well. By the way, it's not just one map. There are different modalities, and different arts and different ways within magic. They all originate at Babylon, and the knowledge that was taught, according to the first opinion directly from the angels to mankind. Okay, this is the first opinion, the second opinion is

00:32:11--> 00:32:19

a slightly modified version. It's really in essence, the same but slightly modified. And this opinion has also been narrated from Ibn Abbas.

00:32:20--> 00:32:26

And it's narrated in a public list of seats. And this is perhaps the easier one for us to understand.

00:32:27--> 00:32:39

And Allah knows which of the two is valid, because honestly, both of them have their weight. The second opinion had been Abbas said that the angels themselves did not teach magic.

00:32:41--> 00:32:51

But rather the angels taught mankind of a group of jinn outside of the city of Babylon, who would teach the magic if they went there.

00:32:52--> 00:32:56

So the angels taught them the location of the tribe of jinn.

00:32:58--> 00:33:16

And, therefore, the angels did not sit down and teach them the minutiae of magic. Rather, the angel said, Look, we are a test from Allah to tell you that there is a place you can learn magic from. And that place is where the jinn reside. And if you go there, you're a Kaffir.

00:33:17--> 00:33:34

So we are warning you don't go there. But if you insist, you can go over there, and you will become a Kaffir. And you will learn that which will be harmful to you, and you will sell yourself to the devil quite literally, and you will have no share of the hereafter. So the only difference in opinion a and opinion B is what

00:33:36--> 00:34:17

did the angels directly teach magic? Or did they indirectly teach magic? Okay, that's the only difference. In essence, though, the angels came down as a test, whether they're directly taught or they indirectly taught. This is very explicit in the Quran, that the angels came down as a test, how to turn out it was sent down to the city of Babylon, and they were a test to the people of Babylon. And they said to the people of Babylon, we are a fitna, so do not commit go for so by the way, this also shows us that yes, Allah will test us just like he told the Bani Israel do not work on Saturday. And then what does the Quran tell us? Allah tested a group of the bunny Australian by,

00:34:18--> 00:34:33

by what? By the fish, the fishermen, Allah tested them to see how sincere they were, that after telling them they're not supposed to work on Saturday. So for a number of weeks, the fish would only come on Saturday.

00:34:34--> 00:35:00

This is in the Quran. Right? And therefore, the fact that the angels of how to tomorrow are testing mankind, someone somebody will say why why is this happening? We say well, because this life is a test. This life is a test. And all of us have easy access to sin living here, all of us. So the fact that sin is accessible is not an excuse. Allah is testing me and you right now. Bye

00:35:00--> 00:35:14

by being surrounded by temptations, and Allah tested the people of Babylon with an even bigger temptation than what we have here, and that is actual magic, right? So whether the angels taught directly whether they taught indirectly, the fact of the matter is that

00:35:16--> 00:36:06

the beginning of magic goes back to Babylon. And it goes back to the angels, telling them or teaching them the reality of magic. From this verse, we gain many points of benefit, most importantly for our lecture today, studying magic and practicing magic and believing in magic is all tantamount to Cofer. You cannot be a Muslim, and practice and believe in this. You cannot be a Muslim. And this is very clear in the verse because Cofer is mentioned multiple times. Firstly, Allah negates go from Sulaiman one Maka, Solomon, then he affirms it for the shayateen for doing what you are the moon and NASA sir, because they were teaching mankind magic. So merely teaching

00:36:06--> 00:36:52

makes you a Kaffir. Right. And then the angels say, we are a fitna, so do not study and become a cover for that tuck for. So studying. So imagine teaching and studying is Cofer. How about practicing and believing think about it, right? If merely teaching and studying, actual Sahara becomes Cofer, then how about believing and practicing? And therefore, the correct position is that the one who practices and believes in this dark art is not a Muslim in Allah subhanho wa taala. He might as well be a idol worshiper, he might as well be a a pagan. So this is the second story in the Quran. And that is the story of Soloman. And Allah azza wa jal says Solomon was not a magician. So

00:36:52--> 00:37:32

the man did not commit Cofer. Rather, you want to know where magic started? The Shayateen were teaching magic and the shayateen. It goes back to what how do we turn now to talk to the people of Babylon, whether directly or indirectly, one quick Hadith and then we move on to really the gist of what exactly is magic. And this hadith brings a lot of issues and problems. But there's also obviously benefits for us, but people are confused by it. To the extent many people deny this. But this hadith is Mustafa valuable, haughty and Muslim. And that is that our prophets are some himself was the subject of sale. And that's something that actually sooner by and large believes, and other

00:37:32--> 00:37:54

groups deny the Morteza deny this and the progressives deny this and many people in our times deny this, but we are a people of tradition. Aletheia and we believe if the decks textbook say it, and the is not as authentic, we believe it. So there are numerous narrations in Sahih Bukhari and sahih. Muslim, that our Prophet Muhammad wa sallam said was done against him. And

00:37:55--> 00:38:00

he narrates that, say how it was done on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:38:02--> 00:38:48

And he began to imagine that he had done something when he hadn't done it. Now, this is our issue being very diplomatic and appropriate and etiquette. And we learned from other books, what was the issue, and the issue was that the process and would wake up in the morning, believing that he needed to do a hustle means he was intimate, but he had not been intimate. So Shayateen especially love to play with this area of sexuality. And by the way, there's a side point as a tangent here. That's why dreams have a sexual nature. Whether a man or a woman sees and what we call wet dreams, whether ejaculation occurs or not, but all dreams of a sexual nature, all of them emanate from Shaytaan. And

00:38:48--> 00:39:30

that is why the prophets, none of them can have these types of dreams. The prophets cannot have these dreams. So dreams of that nature. They come from Shavon Shavon plays with our minds, men and women plays with our mind. Now, of course, it's not sinful, we are not held accountable for what we dream and what happens in our sleep. But this is shaytaan playing with our minds. So in this case, our Prophet says Adam didn't have a dream, but he thought that he had done something natural and allowed between a husband and wife. And actually we tell them, No, there's no need for you. And so this was the maximum effect of the sale. The seller did not go beyond this. It did not affect the

00:39:30--> 00:39:59

way it did not affect his religion. It did not affect the channels of communication between him and Allah, all that it could affect and it was the most powerful psychic alive at the time. His name is Libby that even an arts and we'll come to it that the max he could do was to make the process I'm assuming he had done something halal. And he hadn't done that Halal thing right. Now had that had been done against another human it might have killed him. But our profits are some the effect was so minimal, that he assumed he had done

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

Something that was halal. And he hadn't done something that was halal. Even if he did it right, you understand? That was the max effect of sale. So even the effects of sale were not held on the imagination that he had was halal.

00:40:14--> 00:40:29

And that's the key point here that the people say how could the process be mature Sahaja well read and understand that Subhan Allah, the max impact that he had was that he imagined or he thought he had done something halal. And that's halal for a man and a wife to do. So.

00:40:30--> 00:41:15

Isha says that he made dua to Allah and he made dua, and he made dua to Allah. Then he said to me, he is speaking to Arusha that I feel that Allah has inspired me how to cure myself because I saw a dream that two angels came two people or two angels came, and one of them sat at my head and the other sat at my feet. And the two began having a conversation. So the first said, What is the problem of this man? The second respondent, he has been my scroll set has been done on him. The first set who has done this, the second set, libidinal arson pause here libidinal out some was the Sahara of Medina. He was the most powerful Sahar that everybody would come to. And he was a one of

00:41:15--> 00:41:58

the OD tribes of Medina, and he was well known for his sale. So the first one said, How did he do it? What material did he use, the other one required, he used a comb, and the hair that had been gathered on the comb, and the outer skin of the pollen of the male date palm. This is one word in Arabic, but we don't have an English equivalent. So there's a male organ of the date palm, there is a shell. And so he put some type of sail inside this shell. The first one said, Where is the sail? And the second one said it is in the well of the one, it is in the well of that one. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to the place of that one, and he returned and he said to Isha, the

00:41:58--> 00:42:40

date palms of this well, the unknown also shayateen. They look like the heads of devils. And the water of the well is dark, bloody. It's not to watch it. If we look at it, you'll be discussed in red ocean and dark water. And I Isha said that, did you take out that magic with which the Sahara was done? And the Prophet system responded in one narration? No. For Allah has cured me of that. And I'm afraid that if I take it out, it might cause more harm if the people see it and what not. And so the well was ordered to be destroyed and covered up. So we learned many things from this narration. First and foremost that

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

Eman and Taqwa in and of itself does not necessarily 100% protect you from Syria. Rather, it can minimize the effects of sale.

00:42:53--> 00:43:45

So, someone like the Prophet system, how can we possibly, and he is the symbol of Emma, nobody can even come close to him. And yet for a wisdom that Allah knows he allowed our processes to feel the effects of sanity. So this shows us that Iman and Taqwa in and of themselves might not be a 100% effective mechanism to protect you from several however, they definitely minimize the impact of the sale. So the general rule, the more Eman you have, the less the impact of the sale on you. Your Eman acts like a barrier between you and the sooner. And the stronger your Eman the less the impact of the sale. And in the case of a Profit System. We clearly see this what was the impact of sale? The

00:43:45--> 00:44:21

Max was that he woke up thinking something had happened. Right? How was that? In and of itself product is just bothersome at the most trivial level, isn't it? Right? There is no physical pain. There is no ailment. There is no haram imagination for our process. And it's literally just like the most trivial irritation that I have to take a hosel Aisha says no we don't have to do so. What Why are you thinking this and that and that was because of the secret. We also learned from this narration that most magic occurs

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

by using some type of body parts of the

00:44:27--> 00:44:59

one upon whom the magic is done. And of course to use the body parts you're not going to cut something off. So the most common things used are hair and nails. This is the most common thing you'll hear and nails and also clothing items. These are typically used but not necessarily you can do say hell without them. But typically these things are used. We also learn that one of the main ways to combat Sahara is through dua to Allah

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

because he says he kept on making dua, he kept on making dua for the alpha alpha mme. So one of the main ways to combat that is through dua. We also learned from this that it is very helpful to know where the item is. Because the angel told him the item is in the well, as I said, Why didn't you get the well out and destroy it, which means for most of us, it would be very beneficial to get to the item and destroy it. And we also learned it's not necessary to destroy to eliminate the sale because the process um did not according to one narration eliminated rather He said, Allah has cured me from it, and he covered up the well and basically made it to be the whole area was demolished. According

00:45:45--> 00:45:50

to another Hadith, the angels recited to the Father and Surah NAS.

00:45:52--> 00:45:56

And according to another narration Surah Fela concern us were revealed because of this occasion.

00:45:58--> 00:46:43

So we learned therefore that Surah Al Falah and Surah NAS are of the most powerful cures for sale. And both Fela canas basically directly or indirectly talk about a little bit of the fetlock machete Mahara commercially, last year, Canada woke up woman Sharon Neff, 35 rocket I seek refuge in Allah from the evil of those women who are blowing on knots shut enough fat it will open the fat is the fat that is the females that are blowing. And rocket is knots. And this is what they will do. One of the types of said is to take some hair to take some item and tie some knots and then do your incantations do your you know I mean similar to voodoo dolls and our times right, you throw a pin in

00:46:43--> 00:47:24

and you do this. So all of this is types of sale. And Allah says I seek refuge in You from the evil of those that are doing so well. And out of robbing us in moluccana C'est la vie Nasi mancherial was was ill Hanna's Allah He was with his sunnah middle Jannetty, oneness general seeking refuge and Allah from the jinn. And the jinn are the cause of Satan. So we talked about three stories. Musa Solomon, and the Prophet SAW Selim from this, we learned that Sahara is a reality, you cannot deny it, it's very clear in the Quran and Sunnah. Explicit and therefore the question arises, what exactly is say here?

00:47:26--> 00:47:46

All of this was somewhat of an introduction, because I wanted to prove to you that nobody can deny, if you believe in the Quran, sunnah. What exactly is said, Well, before we get to what is let us say what it is not. When I say magic, when I say say her, we are not talking about the tricks that entertainers do of our times.

00:47:48--> 00:47:59

The types of trickery that entertainers do on the street, or on television, and they call themselves magicians. This is not the singer that we are talking about.

00:48:00--> 00:48:32

That entertainment, deals with illusions, optical illusions, sleight of hand that he'll convince you that a ball is in his hand, in reality, he's already put it in the other hand, and he does this and that and you think it's in this and lo and behold, he pulls it out of the other one, right? Basically the type of magic that we see on television, which is entertainment, pulling rabbits out of hats and sewing people in half and whatnot. This has nothing to do with actual sale.

00:48:33--> 00:49:13

A real Sahar is not an entertainer on television, even if he wants to appear like this. A real sire is not somebody that's going to be doing these tricks of trays and magic cards and whatnot. This is not sale. By law, this has nothing to do. This is illusion, sleight of hand misdirection, modern technique. A lot of these magicians are using state of the art technology even nowadays. And even, for example, Harry Houdini of the 100 years ago, was using technology of his era that we now think is pretty backward, but for his era, he's using state of the art stuff, right? Similarly, the magicians of our times are using state of the art technology to make it appear something that you do

00:49:13--> 00:49:36

not understand. And also I mean, a lot of them are mass deception, ie, you know, you see things on television and the reality isn't as well known. The audience is staged, they're paid or they're volunteers or whatever. And you know, the plane disappears and the audience is gasping Oh, wow. Well, the audience's in on the act basically. And it's entertainment for us watching on ABC, NBC. This is not real sell.

00:49:37--> 00:49:41

Real sector does not occur as entertainment. So

00:49:42--> 00:49:59

that's it that has nothing to do with fit our own and the story of Musa and Libby the awesome. That's not what we're talking about. Now, some of our scholars are very strict and they say all of that is haram. And I understand and definitely it's, you know, not something that we want to encourage but at the same time

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

I don't think that that is haram. And our children like to see these acts and they know, our children, even at a young age know, when the rabbit is pulled out of the hat. There's some type of illusion, I don't understand how it's just cute to look at. Right, in my humble opinion. And I know a lot of greater Allama far more knowledgeable than may have said It is haram. But, you know, realistically living in this society, we're surrounded by these magicians. That is not how long that is. Just entertainment is whether it's encouraged, not It's not encouraged. And I wouldn't encourage our young men or women to get involved. But it's not a stepping stone to devil worship. Let's be

00:50:37--> 00:51:03

real here. Right? If you get a magic set on, and you you know, it gives you these tricks and whatnot. It doesn't tell you how to worship the devil. You have trick cubes and trick boxes. And you're you know, I'm talking about here, right? That is simple child's play. And no doubt our children should be interested in more serious things. But that's not haram. It's just entertainment and whatnot.

00:51:04--> 00:51:20

So then what type of stuff are we talking about? We are talking about, say her that is in our vernacular called black magic or the dark arts, that in our vernacular is called this is the dark arts and the type of seizure that the Quran talks about is the Sahara that deals with the jinn.

00:51:22--> 00:51:26

That is the type of car that of course has been prohibited. So

00:51:28--> 00:52:14

for those who came late, I said that we had already talked about the reality of the gin. I'm not going to go over all of the details of that. But just a quick refresher, if we understand the reality of the gin, we will understand the reality of magic. So when I say magic from an r1, we're not talking about the fake magic. I call that, you know, entertainment magic. That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about actual sale. So if we understand the reality of the gin, we will understand the reality of sale because you cannot have Sahara without the gin, the gin intrinsically go with sale. There's no such thing as sale without gin clear. every sale has to have gin involved.

00:52:15--> 00:52:17

Because in the end of the day, how does something happen?

00:52:19--> 00:52:39

The magician has no power. That's why Musa accused them you're frauds. You don't have any power and you know that you're lying. The magician pretends that he has power. In reality, the power of the magician is nothing other than the physical natural services of the jinn.

00:52:41--> 00:53:27

So if we understand what the jinn are naturally capable of, and we understand that the jinn have for some reason what that reason is, we'll talk about now agreed to help the magician, we will understand that magic is nothing other than what the jinns are naturally capable of doing. There is no supernatural, there is no mystical there is no semi divine, the jinns are not all powerful. Rather, Allah has given them strengths that he has not given us and he has given us strengths that he has not given them. So when the magician utilizes the strengths of the jinn, we don't have to be astonished and amazed at oh my god, how did he do that? Rather, just like we can see a man galloping

00:53:27--> 00:53:50

on a horse at mashallah Tabata cola. How fast is a horse gallop? I have no idea. 40 miles an hour, I don't know 4050 miles an hour right? Now, imagine if we saw the man galloping on a horse, right? Would we say mashallah, how did he do? We know a horse goes 50 miles an hour? What's the big deal? Correct. Now, imagine if we couldn't see the horse. And we saw the man going that fast.

00:53:52--> 00:54:02

We would be pretty freaked out right? But once we understand that, it's just the jinn doing it. Nothing supernatural.

00:54:03--> 00:54:47

Now when I say nothing supernatural, for the jinn, it's not supranet for us from our world. It's supranet for our world, but not for the jinn. For the jinn. It's totally natural. And so if we understand the physical and psychological nature of the jinn, we will understand magic completely. And will Allah he will not fear it anymore. Because it is ignorance that causes us to fear this, we will not fear it at all, any more than we fear a predator. Yes, if we see a snake, I will be scared. But that's a natural fear. Okay, so if we discover magic, we should also some of us might feel a natural fear but there should not be a fear of the unknown or unknown is just that it's bewildering

00:54:47--> 00:54:59

for us because we cannot see the gin. We cannot see it. That's why it throws everything into confusion. If we could see the gin, we would fear it like we fear a beast like we fear a a predator

00:55:00--> 00:55:13

like we have here, but because we cannot, our fear becomes mystical, and sometimes even borders on sheer core beyond what it should be. And that's a problem so quickly again, we've done this in a lot of detail in the previous lecture, which is the reality of the jinn.

00:55:14--> 00:55:18

What are some of the character the physical characteristics of the jinn? What are the jinn made of?

00:55:19--> 00:56:00

What type of fire, smokeless fire go back to my lecture? What did I theorize? What did the gin made of my humble hypothesis is energy, take it or leave it as not reasonable Cornerstone is just my, in, in light of modern science. There's this intuition that I've personally believe in, the more I studied, the more I read, the more this is, personally I believe this but again, there's not Quran sunnah. They're a type of energy and type of energy. So if they're a type of energy, how fast can they go? Quite literally, the speed of light, quite literally, quite literally, they travel at the speed of light, right? If their energy then do physical structures, block them. No, just like my

00:56:00--> 00:56:36

phone is working right now. And we're inside the room. Right? Just like radio waves, just like other waves are coming into this room. And the physical structure has nothing to do with them. It's nothing to do the fish, they're not body. And this also, by the way, talked about this, a lot of people say what is the original form of the jinn? Well, who told you they have an original form? Who told you that they don't, most likely they don't have an original form, there is no such thing as an original form for that, which doesn't have a shape, they don't have any. So they can, they're shapeshifters are their love for the modern science fiction, they can change shape, because that's a

00:56:36--> 00:57:07

part of their nature, that Allah created them so that they can accommodate they're not a particular body. So they have, they're made out of smokeless fire. So this makes them invisible to us. Right. And this also, so they have the capacity to and this is we know this from the Quran and Sunnah. We also know this from our own experiences, they have the capacity to transfer from one energy to another, I'm using my vernacular, so they can become

00:57:08--> 00:57:12

physical, and they can be seen to us when they want to.

00:57:13--> 00:57:45

So how do they do that, in our modern vernacular, they'll simply shift into the color spectrum of light waves. Because for us, what's the only energy we can sense and feel? It's a very, very small window. This is physics, by the way, or the physics guys here. What is the only energy that we can we can see, I should say, so a very small window, and that's red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo, violet, green, blue, indigo, violet, the the colors of the spectrum, right? So the Djinn have the capacity to

00:57:46--> 00:58:02

just move their energy into that level, if you like. And they can then appear to us, they have the capacity to project their voice so that we can hear the energy of the sound, but it's all energy. It's all that's a part of who they can, they can be.

00:58:03--> 00:58:21

So they are invisible. And Allah says in the Quran, in who Eurocom hauwa Cabildo, who men Havilah Tirana home, Elise and his tribe can see you from places you cannot see them. So in this regard, they have the upper hand,

00:58:22--> 00:58:53

they can see you and you cannot see them, they can make their presence known to you. You don't have any clue when where they are or not. Okay? Also, we learned that the jinn, generally speaking are more stronger than men physically. This doesn't mean they have infinite power, only Allah has that power. It just means that an average Jin is physically stronger than an average man. Just like an average man is physically stronger than an average woman. That's all it is.

00:58:54--> 00:59:24

Therefore some gyms are weaker than average people. Some gyms are weaker than a child. But average strength of a gin is stronger than the average strength of a man. This doesn't mean they're all powerful. This means maybe you need three, four or five people to hold a gym down, if they're in a body, let's say doesn't mean that they're all powerful, right? Only Allah azza wa jal is also once you understand again, your fear becomes natural rather than supernatural. And

00:59:26--> 00:59:59

another thing that we learned from the story of Solomon and Shiva billpay is the Queen of Sheba. Another thing that we learned is that the jinn have a very unique power, which is truly bizarre and physicists who are Muslims should really marvel at this. And that is the power to transform matter into energy and back into matter again. And that's something that we are trying to figure out how to do equals MC squared energy and matter are related. We know this and the jinn have the power to do this. How do we know this?

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


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

the throne, the throne of

01:00:06--> 01:00:16

milk so the queen of Shiva, Shiva, the throne, that from Yemen to Jerusalem, Paul a free to mineral gin.

01:00:18--> 01:00:40

Now Jin's we talked about this in last class, there are many levels and the refereed are the most evil and the most powerful. refereed are the what Western literature calls demons of the jinn, these are the worst of the worst. So they're afraid, said, I can bring you the throne before you even stand up.

01:00:41--> 01:01:13

Which makes total sense, physically speaking from physics, I mean, if the gin can go and come back at the speed of light, and this one, gin is so powerful. And now again, this is my two cents. And I said this in the other class, it is as if Allah is saying this is the max that any Genie can possibly do, because Suleiman had control over all the gins. And one of them said, just one, which means the rest.

01:01:15--> 01:01:22

They don't have that power. Right? So we need to put things into perspective, that the gins are not all of them so powerful.

01:01:23--> 01:01:26

We have some, there's a lot of noise in the back, if we can.

01:01:28--> 01:01:28

If we can just

01:01:30--> 01:02:08

say, those who want to the children, they can go outside of if you can have the children maybe go to the other room. So the fact that one only said that he can do this clearly shows what that the restaurant are qualified to do it. And that that was the strongest and the best. So therefore, we need to understand that what is the strength of the strongest gym that maybe we have ever seen? He can pick up the throne of Shiva. Okay, and these days, a crane can do that. I'm just saying, right? It's not as if the gym can pick a star up or the morning, you see, I'm saying it's a physical strength that we can understand.

01:02:09--> 01:02:29

And what was miraculous or nightmarish isn't right, what was supernatural for us was what is that to transport it and it is well known that this throne is going to be inside the palace, that when if he were to take the throne, it would not be flying in the air, people are not going to see it flying, rather it would disappear there and appear

01:02:30--> 01:03:12

in front of Superman, which means what equals MC squared here, right? Einstein was probably right in this regard. So is a beam me up Beam me up, Scotty? Right? This is what edit. And this is what we believe if we believe in the story that it is possible, whether we will ever have that power, I would say never. I don't think but what do we learn from this? Somehow the jinn have that power. Somehow, the jinn have the power to take matter, transform it to energy, take it all the way back and then reproduce it right. And by the way, this is something that is well known with Awatea, from the stories of what's happening, and what not that it is possible for a magician to just produce an

01:03:12--> 01:03:29

item that was lost literally. And he was here it is, right, or looking into crystal balls and whatnot, that we see that you see things in there. And these are the genes that you see playing around and whatnot, you know, so all of this, it is possible. And we know this from our own experiences in humanity. So.

01:03:31--> 01:03:56

So therefore, what is magic? Magic? Is the magician. Magic is the magician getting the gin to do his tricks. What are the tricks? What would the gin have the what would the magician have the gin do so whatever the magician is paid to do, whatever the magician is paid, somebody will come to the magician and say, I want this man's business to go bad.

01:03:57--> 01:03:59

I want their marriage to fail.

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

I want them to have no children.

01:04:04--> 01:04:28

This is this is the common reasons right. And so the magician will get the gin. I'll get to how he'll get it. The magician will get the gin to go and do things. What will the gin do? Whatever the gin does is something we now understand is physical and natural for the gin for the gin, not for us for the gin. So what's going to happen? Well,

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

the people are not going to come to his business. Why wouldn't people come to his business? For so if somebody walks by the business they will hear some viswasam Don't go there whatever. So these are what swasta Jin is putting in Right? Or some physical calamities can happen that are inexplicable that a man is just walking and all of a sudden you know the owner of the business the one that said it was done he just slips a really bad slip you asked him How could you slip in the middle of the day there was no I don't know I just put my foot in other words the gyms physically pushing him right and mold

01:05:00--> 01:05:33

To pull slips, it's like I don't know what's happening, because he doesn't understand what's happening multiple times that now we're not talking about. Here's the point, I'm going to come to a jumping the gun, if you can understand why things are happening, classical cartoonist or if there's a banana right there, and you slip on the banana, there is no magician, there is no saying, Okay, I'm being stereotypical here. But you get the point here. If you see a physical cause, and you trip on a fifth or something, then no, if you have a bad product and nobody's buying it, this is not sin. Okay? This is not sad. Okay.

01:05:34--> 01:05:45

Rather, it's inexplicable. And I'm going to come to how do we know if it's the head or not that multiple time things are happening. And again, the standard example is not having children.

01:05:47--> 01:05:47


01:05:48--> 01:06:20

miscarriages all the time, all the time, miscarriages, one after the other. And the doctors are scratching their heads, I don't understand your normal, your normal, the two of you are normal, that we did the test everything is normal one after the other. And of course, it could be physical, because the gym could quite literally, I mean, I don't know, you know how I'm not a biologist, but I'm sure doctors can say, if you can squeeze, I don't know if some of the features or whatever some type of physical thing that Jin can do. Right now, if the doctors say, Oh, we see the problem there.

01:06:21--> 01:06:25

If the doctor can see it and analyze it, it cannot be said.

01:06:27--> 01:06:57

If it's a problem in the genes in the DNA, if it's a problem that of hormones, if it's a problem of the male or the female, and the doctor has a diagnosable problem, this is not safe, because by its nature and definition, so what is what is the head mean? Hit and you don't understand it? Right? Any time the cause is clear and physical, it's not fair. So if the doctor says, you know, I'm sorry, but you have a hormonal issue, you have too much of this too much, or too little of this, this is clearly not saying, but if the doctors are scratching their head,

01:06:58--> 01:07:37

or you know, pains or bruises or whatnot, and the doctor is like, I don't know, we don't know what's going on. This is a disease that is beyond anything, and every doctor specialist you go to, they just don't understand what is happening here. So this is what we would call a type of set. But from the jinns perspective, the jinn is not doing anything, the jinn is basically not saying gunfire cone, only Allah has that power. The Jinn does not have what we would call genuine supernatural power, or divine power, is that clear. That's what I want to get across to you. Whatever the gin is doing. The Gin has the power to do physically, because the gin can enter the body and the gin has

01:07:37--> 01:07:53

access to the blood. As we know the presence of the gin runs in the blood, right. And the gin has other powers we might not know about but it's physical for the jinn and not supernatural. So all Sahara is basically Jin's doing their tricks clear. Now, the next question

01:07:54--> 01:08:03

we understand, then what's ahead is and that's the jinn doing its tricks. The question therefore is, why would the gym do it?

01:08:04--> 01:08:26

Why would he do we understand what's going on? But the question is, why would he do it? And this is where I'm going to destroy one of the most incorrect myths about black magic that is absolutely dead wrong. And we need to get this out of our minds completely. The myth is that the magician controls the jinn.

01:08:28--> 01:08:32

This is a myth. This is a lie.

01:08:33--> 01:08:35

This is completely wrong.

01:08:36--> 01:09:08

The myth is that the magician is powerful. And the magician has somehow trapped the jinn has somehow made the jinn his servant. And so the magician portrays himself and of course, why is this myth popular? Because that's what the magician say. That's what the magicians want to point out that we are the ones in control. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. rather listen to this. The Magician is a servant of the jinn.

01:09:09--> 01:09:22

And the magician is a worshiper and humbling himself in front of the gin. The Gin is LORD and MASTER OF THE MAGICIAN the other way around. Now, of course the magician doesn't want to tell you that.

01:09:24--> 01:09:30

And that's why he portrays himself as the master. But the fact of the matter is the opposite is true. And

01:09:32--> 01:09:35

therefore, whatever the gin does,

01:09:36--> 01:10:00

it does because it wants to do it not because the master has or sorry the magician has forced him. Here's a key point we believe no one could control the gin other than Soloman to claim that a PSA head controls the Djinn you are saying the PSA head has the same power that Solomon did. And that's what Allah is

01:10:00--> 01:10:05

Saying, well maca Farah Sulaiman Suleiman's control of the gin was not through magic.

01:10:07--> 01:10:35

Allah gave him that power. And the shayateen said, Sonny mod controls us through magic as well to smear him to smear him. And Allah says one Maka, for us with a man. So the man did not control the General Magic. So anybody who says that the magician controls the jinn is accusing, or saying that the magician has the same power as Superman, and that's dead wrong. So why then would the jinn do something for the magician?

01:10:36--> 01:10:59

Here's where we get to the key point of magic that say here is a bartering, a transaction between the magician and the jinn, say here is a business transaction literally, it's like you go to a shop, you give money and you purchase something, right? It's a business deal.

01:11:00--> 01:11:44

And the magician gives something to the jinn and the jinn give something back to the magician. And the both of them need each other. But the more powerful of the two is the jinn and not the magician. Just like we need each other in business transactions, right? I need to go to your restaurant, your car shop, you're this, you need my money, I need your services. This is the reality, we need each other. And in most of our transactions, there's an equal amount of elements, we all need each other. That's how society functions. But in Sahara, there is not an equal in say how the more powerful is the jinn. And the less powerful by far is the magician. So the magician gives something to the gin.

01:11:44--> 01:12:08

Now obviously what does the gin want? The Gin does not want your American Express number. I'll take it but not the magician, you can give it to me no problem as long as his expiration date is there too. No problem. I'll take it. Right. But the gin doesn't need your American Express doesn't need your cash? Does it need your credit? What is the gin? He doesn't even need your food? What does it need? The Gin? What was the fundamental problem of the bliss when Adam was created?

01:12:12--> 01:12:18

He felt he was overlooked. I am better than you on a higher minimum.

01:12:20--> 01:12:34

So the jinn feel inferior. We can quite literally say, say her comes from an inferiority complex of the gym. Quite literally, we can say this, the jinn feel inferior.

01:12:35--> 01:12:47

Because they know we are better and a hold on a sec, how could we be better when all of these things have been given to the jinn and not to us? Because Allah gave us the most powerful thing he didn't give to the jinn. And that is actual

01:12:48--> 01:13:07

knowledge and intelligence. We are more knowledgeable and more intelligent than the jinn. And knowledge is power. And that's why even in our society, what do we value more? The intellect or the strongman? Who gets paid the most? The CEO or the wrestler?

01:13:11--> 01:13:12

Well, these days okay.

01:13:17--> 01:13:30

Even Even if you want to say the wrestler for a while, how long is he going to get paid? For what the box? Or how long? Is he going to get paid? Right? In reality? Okay, let's let me put it this way. Who gets paid more? The office worker or the manual labor?

01:13:31--> 01:13:54

Let me put it that way. Right. Even though who does more physical work, obviously. I mean, you can hire somebody at minimum wage to do the most grueling labor in the sun, to build and to carry and to whatnot, and you pay him what what is minimum wage these days? $8 an hour? $7 an hour? Right? 725? Is it in Tennessee? 785. Right when I started it was 410 or something. So if you guys are lucky, man.

01:13:55--> 01:13:58

So Oh, when he started, it's $1.60. So

01:14:01--> 01:14:20

that's true, actually. Hamdulillah I was lucky when I started. So the point being that you will find somebody to that manual labor. And what do you pay a lawyer? 350 What do you pay the doctors? I don't wanna insult you guys. What do you do with doctors at home? Say like, subhanAllah right? So, and you guys are sitting in your office looking at anyone let me not go too far. The point being

01:14:22--> 01:14:59

who gets paid more? It's the intellect. It's the people of intellect, not power. Right? So in the end of the day, Allah gave us what he didn't give the gin. We are smarter than the gin. And we have knowledge and the gin don't have that knowledge. And we have prophets amongst us and the books are revealed to us and so on and so forth. So the jinn always feel inferior. So what do they want from man? They want to feel superior. They want to feel were the boss. So what do they do? They they trade, just like the manual labor will give you his sweat because hey, I don't have the power. He has

01:15:00--> 01:15:18

I don't have the power. I'm not gonna build bricks and we're not you have that power. You have the time, I'll pay you I have money. So what does the Jin have the physical power, he has the speed, he has the the hiddenness. He can transfer knowledge, you can do this and that he's giving you his manual labor. What are you going to pay him back?

01:15:20--> 01:15:27

Your devotion, your dedication, your worship, your subservience, you will literally literally,

01:15:28--> 01:15:36

prostrate yourself and bend over backwards and do whatever the jinn wants, and humiliate yourself to please the gym.

01:15:37--> 01:15:51

And that's why, and of course, that's one reason that you do it. And of course, another reason is that, so number one, it makes them feel. And number two misguidance. Because the gyms know when you're going to worship them, other than Allah will then

01:15:53--> 01:15:54

take you out of Islam

01:15:55--> 01:16:01

houses they want, right, because one of the goals of the gin is what misguidance they want to misguide you.

01:16:02--> 01:16:03


01:16:04--> 01:16:10

the gin tells the magician, you want my services, this is my price.

01:16:12--> 01:16:36

And what does he ask him to do? I don't want to tell you too much detail and Hamdulillah I haven't studied it in for too much now. Nor should I but you know, the horror movies that all of us see and whatnot. The fact of the matter is, is elements of truth that humanity has learned. And they put it into these horror movies, there is some things that they know. And we know this from our culture. So what does the magician do

01:16:38--> 01:16:55

sacrilegious things? Right? Things that are just disgusting. Evil, blood sacrifice, right? Or, you know, even in children's books. So what is the magic recipe made of? What is something that you put in the magic potion? Right?

01:16:57--> 01:17:24

Toads, the grasses, toads, bones, okay, the eye of what not and the leg of this and that. Now, him and you know, we laugh at this there is an element of truth here. Meaning what? Imagine if you have a list as ridiculous as this? Get the bone of a dog, get the eye of this, get that and you have to go around for days getting these things? How do you think that she's going to feel watching you in humiliation?

01:17:25--> 01:17:43

This is giving the jinn what a booster thrill right? And then he will say go to the graveyard in the middle of the night and do this and do that. So the magician will go along and do it all. So in reality who's more in charge? The Jinn is more in charge not the magician, because the magician I mean,

01:17:44--> 01:17:52

in reality the magician is the jinn more than the genie is the magician. So the magician will literally sell himself to

01:17:54--> 01:17:57

the jinn. And when you sell yourself to the jinn, you cannot be a worshipper of Allah.

01:17:58--> 01:18:41

You cannot be a worshipper of Allah. And that is why it is very common for the for the magician to actually do acts of blatant Cofer things that are absolutely disgusting. Things that involve and I don't want even mentioned it inside the Masjid. But it involves dishonouring some of the signs of Allah, it involves not just it involves humiliating his own body. It involves any sacrilegious, vulgar, profane, and I don't want to give examples, but Wallahi the worst of the worst things that even even a person who's bad will not do what the magician does, right? You will have thieves you will have murderers you will have they have a limit of what they how they maintain themselves.

01:18:42--> 01:18:45

magicians have no depths of depravity, that they're not going to go down to

01:18:47--> 01:19:08

doing stuff that even an agnostic atheist would feel disgusted at doing. And I do not want to give any examples. But anything you can think of Wallahi they do worse than that. I swear by Allah, they do worse than that. And I speak from my own experiences with doing exorcisms and whatnot that they do much worse than this. And the anything you can think of they do worse than this.

01:19:09--> 01:19:48

And why do they do it? Because again, from the perspective of the gin, getting a thrill, looking at you humiliating yourself, putting nudges on yourself, eating this doing that going there, look at the thrill that you're giving the gym, right? And so in return if the gym just has to go and slap somebody and come back more than happy to do it, so that you have to grovel even more, right? Correct. Right? And this is the reality of what's ahead is that the magician is basically giving this Jinn some boost and misguiding himself by becoming away from Islam or worshipping other than Allah subhana wa Tada literally I mean when they say that you sell yourself to the devil. That's

01:19:48--> 01:19:59

literally what you do literally. It's not even a it's not even a figure of speech here. That's what you do is you sell yourself to the shaitan do what you are asked me to do what you want and I will then be

01:20:00--> 01:20:04

You know, obey you now. Therefore, what therefore happens here?

01:20:06--> 01:20:17

Is that what happens is that And okay, so why would the why would the magician do this before we move on to like, Well, why would the magician want to do that? What is the motivation of the magician?

01:20:18--> 01:20:28

Money, money, and maybe even fame but money? The main motivation of the magician is money. And what did the

01:20:29--> 01:20:43

Fed owns magician say all in Elena, the agilon? What's in it for us? Right? So, magicians what do they gain? Money from whom, from people that come to them?

01:20:44--> 01:21:18

It's a profession, it's a job. And a job that gives them power as well. That's another thing. It makes them feel powerful above other men but not above the gym because they are the servant of the gym. Right? They have to humiliate themselves in front of the gym, but in front of the other people it makes them feel it's like imagine how a massive bodybuilder would feel no nobody can beat me up right walking around like that. That type of boost I got the gym that's gonna help me This is arrogance. Correct. That arrogance will be given to the magician, no doubt about it, because he feels he has

01:21:19--> 01:21:58

a weapon that you will cannot oppose. But what does Allah say? Well, Muhammad Ali, interview him and I had an Elizabeth nila, they can never harm somebody except with the permission of Allah subhanho wa taala. So to then summarize very briefly, so then what exactly is how does this happen, that the man who wants to do this evil deed, the man or woman who wants to do this evil didn't become a magician, so they learn and study this art from somebody who's already trained. And this person will tell him, you need to do this, and this and this. And, again, this is filtered down through our horror movies as well. Now there's elements of truth, sit at 3am, facing such a direction, in the

01:21:58--> 01:22:07

middle of a pentagon, and you draw it out, and you will have this color light, and you will have this and that. So these are signals being given to the jinn world that I'm willing to enter.

01:22:09--> 01:22:43

So these are this is written in reality, this is exactly how it happens, right? That these are signals that are being given to the jinn world, that this is what the Babylon Jin's were taught that how do you communicate with us? How do you get in touch with us, and from that has been developed, as we said, into my die, but the point is, so the magician does this, and he will sit there and sit there and Subhanallah I've interviewed a number of these people, before and after their Toba sometimes before sometimes after, and yes, this is exactly the reality that they will say that we did this. And,

01:22:44--> 01:22:50

you know, every day, nothing happened, nothing happened, nothing happened. So the agenda is seeing if you're serious, you're not until finally one day

01:22:51--> 01:23:14

they see something, or a power or a presence or a voice or whatever. And then they are told to do this. So raise it up a notch, are you serious, then do this. So then there's direct communication, they will go and do it, and then the relationship begins, the relationship begins and then this gym that they contact, typically, and I say this from my own experience, I haven't.

01:23:15--> 01:23:24

I don't know of anything in the Quran and Sunnah that would support this, but nothing negates that as well. From my own experiences what I have found that the gin that communicates with the Sahara

01:23:25--> 01:23:36

is not typically the gin that goes and irritates or does the harm. Rather, that gin does indeed have minions

01:23:38--> 01:24:19

servants because here's the point. The myth is that this the the magician controls the gin. I've asked people with what chains whips how, what are you going to use to control the gin? How you can't even see it? How can you control it? But cannot the stronger agenda control the weak region? In their own world? Yes, because that's their world. And quite literally, quite literally the jinns are like some type of Mafia with the boss with the Godfather at the figurehead, right. And the the magician contacts one of the upper guys one of the henchmen, one of the bigger maybe even the boss himself. And then his work is subcontracted out

01:24:20--> 01:24:29

literally tells one of the lower guys on the on the ladder. You have to go do that. Right? Minimum Wage outsourcing it right, outsourcing it.

01:24:30--> 01:24:32

But no, not to India. No, no, don't worry. Now.

01:24:36--> 01:24:39

Having said that, there's a lot of Indian Pakistan. Yes, unfortunately.

01:24:40--> 01:24:42

It's reality, isn't it? It's

01:24:44--> 01:24:47

the point being that and this is my own experience that Allah knows best that that

01:24:50--> 01:24:58

I don't want to tell too many stories here. But let me just get one or two. And so I've asked a number of gins Why are you doing this?

01:25:00--> 01:25:01

Hey, gents.

01:25:02--> 01:25:05

Yeah, when I'm doing the exorcisms, and when I get to the gym to talk

01:25:07--> 01:25:08

a few times there is.

01:25:09--> 01:25:36

So So what are you getting out of this? What is it in it for you? And I've got multiple responses. Now, we don't believe, necessarily the gym. But these responses to me seemed legitimate at the time, because of the circumstances because of this and not so I'm not going to go into detail. But I've asked, let me not say I've asked, it has been said that a number of them said, so one of them said that if I, if I don't do this, I will be punished by

01:25:38--> 01:26:01

not they didn't mention it by the bigger guys. Right? I'll be punished by the by. Because look, the thing is, when you're performing an exorcism, and you are reciting Quran, the gene is being tortured. The gene is being tortured, right? And subhanAllah, we're already getting almost to them that there's so much left to do, the agenda has been torture. So in that stage, you know, you asked this gin, wouldn't you rather just leave rather than be tortured here?

01:26:02--> 01:26:10

I mean, why don't you leave, because right now, you're definitely not enjoying this. So just leave. And so the gin says, If I leave, I will face

01:26:11--> 01:26:22

that type of torture, and I'll be shredded to bits and whatnot. And, and therefore, and one of them even said I would rather die in this way, then what they would do?

01:26:24--> 01:26:31

So whatever it is, I don't know, right? Whatever it is, that's not. And another instance, it said that.

01:26:33--> 01:27:06

I do this because this was only one time I heard this, I do this because I am honored when I commit the deed. When I do this, they give me the big guys. They give me a lot of water. Now what is that? Honor, it's not money, but whatever it is, just like we are motivated by money for short, the Djinn have their internal motivations. Okay? So this is that subcontracting out right? That something is given to this entity, something is given to this entity that makes it feel very, very big, very, like, I'm willing to do this in order to get

01:27:08--> 01:27:27

the promotion, whatever. I mean, that's actually a good thing, promotion, or the reward or whatever. And on one occasion, the entity said that, that it's beyond my control, that they have bound me, physically, from whatever that is, and I cannot.

01:27:29--> 01:28:04

I cannot stop doing this. And it's like, I don't have any choice here, because they have physically bound me. And I kept on trying to get out how, but it wouldn't tell me. So the point is, and again, we don't know if this is true or not, we don't base our religion on this. But at the same time hearing all of this, we see that there are multiple motivations, their motivations that are different, sometimes it's threat. Sometimes it's bribe. And sometimes there seems to be some type of slave labor going on amongst them to that it's not I can't help it. It's just, it's just happening. But generally speaking, what we have discovered that people do that is that generally the gym that

01:28:04--> 01:28:07

communicates with the magician is not the gym that actually ends up

01:28:08--> 01:28:12

doing the deed. And of course, one of the things that clarifies this as well is that

01:28:13--> 01:28:17

the quantity of gin is far more numerous than the quantity of men.

01:28:19--> 01:28:26

Because jinns procreate by the 1000s. Every gene has sired 1000s. And each gene lives for

01:28:28--> 01:28:43

hundreds of years, if not 1000s of years. So when you have genes that are by them, billions and billions, and billions, so for short, it's easier to get, you know, cheap labor, basically. Right subcontract out and get it done. So.

01:28:45--> 01:29:10

So much less of Harlow might have to go down to number four, but let me so we're gonna have to skip over many things. Skip over the Hadith about magic, the types of magic and astrology and its relation, all of this skipping over. Let's just get to some of the points that we need to really understand. I don't want to I don't want to delay this to part four. Maybe we'll have another sorry, part three. Maybe we'll have another part three about those things. Part. Let's finish this by talking about

01:29:12--> 01:29:21

how can we detect magic? When do we know if it is actually magic? When do we know if it is actually magic or not?

01:29:23--> 01:29:30

And this is one of the biggest problems that our Muslim community has that many people

01:29:31--> 01:29:35

spend, especially our sisters. blame everything on magic.

01:29:39--> 01:29:40

slightest problem

01:29:42--> 01:29:42


01:29:44--> 01:29:46

said, I am neither

01:29:52--> 01:29:56

and this is a psychological problem Wallahi it's a problem

01:29:57--> 01:29:59

in my own humble experience, and I'm not
