In Islam,

00:00:04--> 00:00:32

the universal brotherhood does not only spread horizontally, that is, it doesn't only cover all the regions and all the people of the whole world and universe, it even goes vertically. The universal brotherhood in Islam, the universal brotherhood of faith includes what typically, even the generations that came before you that went in the past, the universal brotherhood in Islam

00:00:33--> 00:00:39

includes the people living and the people have passed, you are a single race

00:00:41--> 00:00:42

or a single people.

00:00:44--> 00:00:45

This universal brotherhood,

00:00:46--> 00:01:07

that is a better word of faith, it spreads horizontally, as well as vertically and the cornerstone of this faith in all the religions, if you analyze, it is the belief in one creator, one Almighty God, it is only because of this, that universal brotherhood can prevail in the whole universe.

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

And this universal bezahlt of faith,

00:01:13--> 00:01:18

it is far superior to the Brotherhood of blood relationships.

00:01:20--> 00:01:42

The Quran says, as I mentioned, you should respect your parents. The Quran says in Surah Surah chapter number 17 was number 22 and 24 that Allah subhanho wa Taala has ordained for you that you worship none but him. And that to be kind to your parents. And if any one of them, or both of them reach old age, do not say a word of contempt. Don't even say off to them.

00:01:44--> 00:01:53

But lower to them your being of humility, and address them with honor and pray to the Lord that cherish them as they cherished me in childhood.

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

That means you have to love and respect your parents and give them all honor and respect.

00:02:01--> 00:02:29

But at the same time, the Glorious Quran says in Surah lukeman, Chapter 31 verse number 15, after saying that, you have to respect the parents, the Quran says but if they strive in making the joint partners with me, who you have no knowledge of. That means if your parents forced you to join partners with Almighty God, you do not obey them. But in this world, deal with them with justice and compassion.

00:02:30--> 00:02:51

That means your parents you have to obey them, as long as they don't go against Almighty God against the commandment of Allah subhanho wa Taala you have to obey them. If they go against the commandments. Allah subhana wa Taala Almighty God is most superior, the best out of faith is universal. It is far superior than brotherhood of blood relationships.

If your parents give you guidance against the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether it be your sons, whether it be your brothers, or your spouse's, or your relatives, or you do deeds against Allah subhanho wa Taala for the wealth

00:04:24--> 00:04:48
