16:50 – Explains why we are here. We sided with Satan; Satan wants to be a god besides God and we did not oppose that.
17:25 – People who think that Mary, Jesus, Muhammad, etc. can do anything are falling in the same trap of committing that same crime again. You can be redeemed only if you change that. Worshiping God alone means knowing that only God has the power to do anything.
17:50 – You must know that God is the one that hires or fires, decides how many dollars are in your pocket, and provides for you, so if you think that your boss is the one doing these things, you’re falling in the same trap.
18:20 – Starts talking about Sura 72:24. Out of all of Tucson, only about fifty people come to worship God alone, so in that city, they appear to be fifty among 500,000 people. There may be another fifty out there that worship God alone under the name of Christianity, Judaism, or Islam, but they do believe that only God possesses all power. This appears to be a minority.
19:05 – You see a submitter walking around and identify them by their body, but you don’t really see what size they are, in terms of their soul. Differences in this world and the Hereafter are really great.
19:35 – Your real size may be the size of Phoenix, but those who don’t believe that God possesses all power have shrinking souls that may be the size of a cat. So who is really weaker in power and fewer in number? One man versus one million ants: who is really stronger?
21:15 – In the Hereafter, everything becomes obvious. You are walking around like a hidden queen.
23:40 – There’s only one angel in charge of Hell named Malek as far as we are told.
26:30 – God doesn’t want us to know the exact arrangement of Hell yet.
30:45 – Sura 72 is specifically for Masjid Tucson, “our age”.
31:55 – Up until now, only less than 7% of people have come to this world since Adam’s time and there’s about 93% more to go. We are among the early generations.
32:30 – The message is being consolidated for the vast majority of people to come. All the falsehood of other religions are happening for a brief period of time and involves a small number of people. New generations are enlightened; they are rebellious and don’t listen to their parents. Satan will be defeated.
35:20 – Sura 72:25 is telling the disbelievers that they will be punished. Nothing in Sura 72 applies to Muhammad.
39:25 – It’s a prerequisite that someone know what the mathematical code is. The person who doesn’t understand the code won’t understand anything, so it’s required to understand a lot of things.
39:50 – When the Quran says “say”, it’s not always referring to Muhammad, but it’s for us or just referring to the Quran itself.
40:15 – Sura 3:31 is the Quran speaking.
40:50 – Many things in the Quran are referencing the future, not just during Muhammad’s time; some things are in future tense. The Quran is valid for all times.
51:15 – You have to find out what you did to provoke someone to hit you, for example. You aren’t supposed to get in a fist fight to start with.
52:05 – If someone punches you in the face, you don’t get angry at the person. You get angry at yourself for provoking them and find out what you did to make them angry. If you annoy or hurt anybody, you’ve committed a sin. You shouldn’t object to what happened.
53:15 – If someone says they don’t like you because they assume you follow Khomeini, then they’re just stupid.
53:55 – You stand up for your rights.
54:20 – Just ignore them. This takes more strength.
55:15 – You should not get in any fist fights. Just ignore them. It takes more strength to restrain yourself than to be provoked into getting in a fist fight.
55:40 – If someone punches you, you have the right to punch back, but God says it’s better and you’ll be stronger if you restrain yourself. Self-defense is always justified.
57:30 – If you are a person of God, you’ll be a winner all the time.
58:25 – Being sad or depressed is objection. Happiness is submission to God.
59:00 – Believers are suppressors of anger. It’s not worth it to get in fist fights or get angry because of what somebody says. You can defend yourself, but if you forgive and forget, you’ll be much stronger.
59:40 – The Quranic night begins at sunset. Discusses Sura 73:1-2. You’re commemorating God when you pray the Sunset and Night Prayers, when you mention the name of God before you sleep, and when you get up for the Dawn Prayer; you’ve already covered half the night. The day begins at sunrise.
1:00:40 – You must never miss the Dawn Prayer.
1:01:05 – People are so oblivious to God that when we do a little bit, we think we’re doing a lot, especially when you compare yourself to the average person who doesn’t pray.
1:02:00 – Anything is forgivable, but idol worship isn’t if the person dies as an idol worshiper. You can clean your record any minute by repenting.
1:02:50 – When you’re covered up with your blanket, you’re cloaked.
1:03:30 – Recommends reading the Quran every night and every dawn. Times of anticipating the prayers are also periods of commemorating God.
1:13:25 – Talks about missing the Dawn Prayer once in a long while. God says you can’t do it all the time, so you may miss it once a month or something. (gives example of being too tired from staying up late from traveling or doing business)
1:16:15 – Reciting Al-Fatehah for birthdays to give them a great year coming up and a greater year every year after that. It’s a characteristic of the believers that things only get better.
1:16:35 – Reciting Al-Fatehah for someone visiting Iran to wish them success and a good trip. God never turns us down when we recite Al-Fatehah. Reciting Al-Fatehah for someone who is sick to make them healthy and for everyone’s dearest wish. God loves when you pray to Him.
1:17:20 – Children of believers are taught persistently and for their own happiness to maintain their virginity until marriage.
1:18:20 – God is the one who controls your happiness and misery. God doesn’t make us miserable; we make ourselves miserable. God controls our wealth. If we follow God’s law, we are guaranteed a perfect life and perfect happiness.
Starts with saying believers are Satan’s main target.
6:45 – Footnote of Sura 95:3 explained. Fig represents Adam since Adam and Eve covered themselves with fig leaves in Paradise, olive represents Jesus because of Mount Olive, Mount Sinai represents Moses, etc. This all represents one and the same message.
24:00 – Discusses Sura 95:4-5. Lowliest of the lowly applies to disbelievers and idol worshipers because they’re worse than animals.
24:45 – The Quran is not the ink and paper; it’s not the physical book.
25:55-27:40 – Explains meaning of verses that say no falsehood can enter the Quran; the Quran is written in many different ways. The addition of the two false verses does not mean the Quran was not preserved. The Quran was placed in Muhammad’s heart so that couldn’t have been the ink and paper.
34:10 – Someone asks if God knew that the majority of humans would end up in Hell, why would they be created? If Earth was never created, creatures that end up in Hell would have said that they weren’t given a chance and that they didn’t know how bad Hell was going to be, so their excuses are being nullified now.
37:20 – Millions of people are still saved, like all the people who died before forty, so for these relative few, it was worth it to create the universe and everything. Think of you and I hoping to make it to Heaven and all the millions that died before forty; they would’ve been in Hell, but now, they end up in Heaven because they redeemed themselves.
55:10 – Rashad explains why “clot” was changed to “embryo” in the new translation for Sura 96.
1:11:00 – Dr. Sabahi says he wishes someone could read Sura 96 in Arabic because it’s beautiful and knowing Arabic is a privilege, but Rashad says that God says it doesn’t matter and doesn’t make a difference to believers.
1:14:00 – They recite Al-Fatehah for travels, birthdays, for everyone’s dearest wishes to be granted, and as a means of offering thanks to God.
4:20 – Announces that Eric was a spy. Says they suspected that; all the signs were there.
8:00-10:10 – Talks about Moses’ mother’s fear. Someone said if he were her, he would say, “Hold it! Anybody else up there?” Rashad said he already gave himself a test by saying that and he should repent; he also said that Satan might try to mimic God’s voice like he did with Abraham.
11:05 – Pharaoh died a believer, but he didn’t have time to develop his soul.
14:10 – Someone asks if he’s sure that Pharaoh in the Cairo Museum is the one from Moses’ time and he says yes because it had salt in the body. Rashad says it wasn’t Ramses.
31:00 – Talks about inviting college students to the message, but none of them showed up to the Quran study after their discussion. Rashad discusses how a lot of people are presented the miracle, but still no response. It’s like they’re under hypnosis; nothing moves them.
34:25 – Even just the mathematical miracle surrounding the word “God” in the Quran proves that the Quran is from God.
1:00:10-1:01:45 – He admits he made a mistake by telling someone that pills would remove his flu and heal him. Joseph did the same thing and stayed in prison for years. He didn’t say by God’s grace and His help.
1:40 – Talks about visiting relatives and friends in Hell. Someone asks, “We won’t feel sad?” Rashad says no.
10:00 – Sura 37:1-3 describes the angels as being arrangers, blamers, and reciters of the messages. Arrangers refers to the resurrection process and arranging all the people. Blamers refers to beating up the disbelievers and blaming disbelievers.
11:35 – Explains Sura 37:5 where it says “Lord of the easts” (e.g. sunrise, Jupiter-rise, Saturn-rise, Mars-rise).
13:30 – Talks about how to know when Ramadan starts. Washington Post says when new moon starts so you don’t have to physically go look outside for yourself.
16:45 – God talks to humans and jinns separately in Sura 55 because they have separate needs and like different things. If God described Heaven to them the same way that He does to us, they wouldn’t be interested. The Quran is for both humans and jinns.
18:25 – Explains Sura 55:17 where it says “Lord of the two easts and two wests”. (e.g. sunrise, moon-rise, sunset, moon-set)
20:05 – This universe is a prison cell for Satan and his angels, the jinns.
26:00 – The High Society refers to God and His angels. If jinns heard about an angel being appointed to send an asteroid to Saudi Arabia, they would want to try and interfere.
32:10 – Waking up for dawn is difficult at first, then it becomes easier.
37:30 – Saying jeez may be okay, but not Jesus Christ because Satan would take that as you commemorating Jesus Christ because he is the biggest crybaby.
40:20 – Explains what it means in Sura 37:28 where it says “used to come to us from the right side”.
43:40 – We witnessed that there is no god but God, but we didn’t witness that Muhammad or Jesus is the messenger of God, so it’s a lie to say that as part of the Shahada.
49:20 – Community in the Quran means like the Christians and Jesus, Jews and Moses, and Muslims and Muhammad, not like a generation, but more like congregation.
51:40 – Each community has a predetermined lifespan, like the Roman empire, whole nation or country, etc.
1:12:30 – Talks about Sura 3:118, befriending certain people, and run for your life. These outsiders may take you away. They do everything possible to stop you from continuing to worship God and follow His commandments. This is the biggest disaster that can happen to anybody.
1:13:25 – When you meet these people and sense that they’re not totally in agreement with following God’s commandments, like mocking the Friday Prayer… people get dismissed from God’s grace because of not observing the Friday Prayer.
1:14:25 – If we mix with them, they will influence us.
1:15:45 – You can try to help them, guide them, etc. Once you’ve delivered the message, tried to help them, but you find that they’re not responding and continue their defiance of God and mocking you, run for your life.
1:30:40 – Now, the battle is completely mental.
13:35 – Explains Sura 56:79, saying it doesn’t mean none can touch the Quran. None can derive anything from the Quran unless they’re sincere.
14:15 – When you read the Quran, you’re being taught by God. No matter how many times you read it, you learn new information.
15:15 – Our salvation is in the Quran. We are fortunate to study it every week at Quran studies and hopefully reading at least one verse every day (make it a duty upon yourself).
16:00 – Only people who believe have been making discoveries in the Quran.
31:55 – Sura 56:90 (being one of the right) refers to those who die under forty. God knew they deserved to go to Lower Heaven and not Hell because of circumstances only He knows and they came to perform a function. They were assigned souls that God knew deserved to go to Lower Heaven. Had they lived, they would’ve been swept by circumstances.
36:05 – Had God let Martin Luther King, Jr. live beyond the age of forty, he would’ve been swept by his environment or circumstances into maybe mentioning Jesus. This is why God chose to take him at that time to protect him. God’s justice put these people in exactly the right place.
37:05 – There were degrees of conviction among us: jinns who completely agreed with Satan, majority of humans who were wishy-washy, and some who were swept in the crowd.
38:20 – Talks about “first generation” believers. People who were with Muhammad, for example, while he was secretly preaching and were being persecuted as opposed to when he had already become victorious and all the people of Mecca became believers and everyone jumped on the wagon; they don’t deserve the same credit.
39:30 – Says, “We are a first generation.” The people who are in this movement while the persecution, name-calling, and insults are going on are special people compared to the people who jump on the wagon when Submission is famous and accepted by millions.
3:20 – You have an invisible giant standing by you to protect you as one of God’s people and wherever your children go, anything connected with you. When you go take a test, there’s an angel with you and they know everything about every subject and they’ll be with your kids.
14:15 – Mentions an example of pitching in to help a fellow believer as a chance to thank God and be “proud” of their community.
17:00 – Explains Sura 59:10 (“keep our hearts from harboring any hatred towards those who believed”). People were fighting each other. Disbelievers became believers and joined the camp (people who killed their relatives in war became believers). God removed hatred from their hearts.
24:10 – Hypocrisy is lack of belief. They go along with whatever group they’re with, so they’re really worshiping their own ego. They reach this conclusion on their own and make a decision.
25:55 – The definition of a hypocrite is someone who says they’re a believer when in their heart, they really aren’t. Usually, they don’t know they aren’t believers. They’re forbidden by God from saying La Elaha Ella Allah without saying Muhammad Rasool Allah. When God alone is mentioned, they don’t like it.
27:15 – A disbeliever is one who says they don’t believe. A hypocrite is more damaging than a disbeliever.
29:45 – Khomeini was a hypocrite because he sincerely believed he was a believer, but he didn’t act according to the Quran.
44:50 – Explains Sura 59:18 (“let every soul examine what it has sent ahead for tomorrow”). Examine what you have sent ahead for the eternal day.
46:00 – Talks about post-retirement account. Every Contact Prayer and every time you remember God, you make a deposit into your PRA.
47:40 – Continues explaining Sura 59:18. Examine how many deposits you’re making in your PRA for the coming day. You make deposits by observing God. At a minimum, you observe God by doing the five prayers, being honest, truthful, kind to the people, an exemplary person.
48:25 – Every deposit you make will be multiplied manifold because you’re building up interest.
49:35 – Explains Sura 59:19 (“do not be like those who forgot God, so He made them forget themselves”). They forgot to make deposits for their soul. You have an eternity ahead of you and now is the only time you can make deposits.
1:05:35 – Disbelievers don’t think Hell even exists, but hypocrites say they believe in God, know there is a Heaven and Hell, and think they’re going to Heaven. Someone says then in that case, the only people who would be disbelievers are atheists and Rashad says yes, exactly. The vast majority of all people are hypocrites. Most people no matter what you do will not believe and most of those who believe fall into idol worship.
1:10:20 – They recite Al-Fatehah for someone’s birthday and to fulfill everyone’s dearest wishes.
4:00 – Those who idolized Muhammad against his will did not deserve the pure Quran all those years.
5:30 – Talks about the Quran getting delayed in being printed. He was frustrated due to his ignorance and said he shouldn’t be frustrated because he should know that God is arranging the time. The delays were designed for the pure Quran to come out during Ramadan.
20:15 – God chose the Children of Israel in the sense that He gave them the scripture, saved them from Egypt, and split the sea for them, but they made it exclusive. They exaggerated it way beyond reason.
22:40 – We don’t long for death because we know the longer we worship God, the greater and more developed our soul becomes. You must be really arrogant to long for death.
25:50 – If certain Jews and Christians worship God alone, it doesn’t matter what they call themselves. They’re still your brethren.
26:45 – If they read the Quran, they would wholeheartedly accept it and find nothing objectionable in it.
27:35 – If you decide to be a Jew, you have to follow Jewish law (honor the Sabbath on Saturday by not working or answering the telephone and spending the day worshiping God, follow their diet system according to the Torah, pray three times a day, etc.). Now that you’ve seen the Quran and the completion of the message, it wouldn’t be very smart to go back in time. The message from God evolved with the human being. Anyone following any of these divinely revealed systems is alright.
29:30 – Real Christians would follow what Jesus taught and real Jews would follow what Moses taught, so unless they’re really doing that, they aren’t true Christians or Jews.
33:40 – There’s no conflict between the scriptures. They all advocate the worship of God alone and give a system to develop your soul.
35:10 – God permitted the distortions of other scriptures since the Quran is the one that would be for the whole world about fifty years from now (1989) to be given to the vast majority of the human race. It supersedes and takes the place of all the others.
36:05 – The older scriptures are supposed to vanish. This is why we have these overwhelming physical proofs. Recites Sura 9:33 (“dominate over all other religions”). This is God’s law, not wishful thinking.
37:35 – Islam will be the dominant religion and America will be a Muslim country. It will no longer be a Christian country. This is God’s law that maximum fifty years from now, this will happen. Someone said this is just based on Rashad’s desire, but he responds and says it’s not and they don’t know the miracle or else they’d agree with him.
47:50 – It is better for you to abandon a $10 million business deal and go to Friday prayer; God will give you $20 million. The reward is doubled and multiplied manifold for doing that.
51:15 – The purpose of the Friday Prayer is to commemorate God in a group of people.
55:50 – Example of vain talk: making assumptions and going on discussing them.
1:02:55 – God will accept the prayers for forgiveness for the believers, but not for the hypocrites. They’re too arrogant and don’t have the belief in their hearts. Intercession is useless if someone is meant to go to Hell, anyway.
1:07:30 – Explains Sura 63:4 (“standing logs”). Can you communicate with a wooden log? An Egyptian and English proverb talks about standing like a log.
1:11:45 – All of a person’s work is in vain if they don’t believe in God.
1:12:30 – You’re disobeying God if you don’t fast, don’t do your prayers, lie, cheat, etc.
1:13:55 – Reciting Al-Fatehah for someone’s exam (requested it), birthday, for everyone’s personal wishes, etc. God never turns us down.
6:50 – Explains Sura 65:8. When communities rebel, it’s a sign that retribution is coming to them fast.
8:00 – Explains Sura 65:11. Talks about people who believe and work righteousness that are still in darkness. Messengers cannot lead people out of darkness into the light if they don’t believe and work righteousness.
9:10 – Evolution is a divinely guided process.
10:15 – God created seven earths identical to this earth, but the other six earths don’t have life in them. On the Day of Judgment, everyone will witness that there were six other earths with no life.
14:55 – Husband must provide for the wife for at least one year after divorce. If you want to be happy, you follow God’s laws and if you want to be miserable, you don’t. You provide according to your wealth.
18:15 – The more the human being is educated and the more knowledge they acquire, the more he comes closer to the Quran.
20:20 – Believers’ affairs are decided after consultation. A divorced, believing couple would maintain amicable relations.
21:15 – The Quran is applicable through anytime till the end of the world.
21:30 – The general public won’t be as familiar with the Quran as they need to be, so Islamic judges are needed.
22:15 – Judges are needed when there is a dispute. You don’t need a judge if the person knows what they’re doing. Maximum freedom is guaranteed in the Quran.
32:50 – Because you’re doing God’s commandment, God controls your heart and their hearts (children) and everything will go just wonderful. You have to keep telling them (to pray).
35:45 – Kids saying, “No, I don’t want to pray”, will not happen if you carry out God’s commandment.
36:20 – Do the commandment that God gave you and everything goes fine. If you are lax and do not persist in carrying out the commandment, they will go without prayer.
49:30 – Talks about being stern, otherwise, they’ll fall in the ditch.
00:35 – The Quran prohibits reading it in Arabic for non-Arabic speaking people.
7:30 – Gabriel is the only one who carries new revelations down to the world; that’s his only job. That’s why one of his names is the Spirit.
30:50 – What is legally theirs covers all the methods of marriage in the world (common-law marriages).
32:10 – Worshipers who don’t observe the Contact Prayers are anxious, always worried, and depressed. If you worry, become despondent when something bad happens to you, and you’re stingy when you have money, you don’t belong with the believers.
34:50 – God does not get angry.
44:40 – It takes maybe ten years after the voice of the boy changes and the menstruation of the girl to be pregnant and in a marriage relationship.
45:10 – Believers’ children are in God’s hand and God chaperones them and is with them wherever they go. If you do your part, God does His part and you must have that confidence.
51:40 – Talks about problems in marriage (bickering about little things versus serious problems).
54:40 – Question about people who don’t want to get legally married. Only okay if they decide that they’re together forever and they’ll raise a family as a couple forever; intention matters.
55:50 – It’s prostitution if you get married, but don’t intend to stay together forever.
1:05:40 – Believers are the hardest workers wherever they go and they enjoy every second of it. They’re the most honest workers and best producers. They’re not lazy.
1:06:50 – Discusses rich believers being better than poor believers. Edip wanted Rashad to change this because of misunderstandings, but he didn’t because God meant that. Both believers are equal in belief, but one is able to give to charity, spread the word of God, and do things that will make a difference.
1:13:30 – Muhammad didn’t see Gabriel. Gabriel made a connection between his soul and physical body. You get possessed by the angel, though you’re fully conscious.
19:50 – Noah was probably the first messenger after Adam.
21:20 – Explains Sura 71:16. The sun is a source and the moon is reflective; a lamp is a source of light.
24:00 – Aramaic was most probably the language used at the time of Noah.
25:40 – Salat didn’t exist before Abraham since the duties of Islam came through him.
26:45 – Adam was a prophet. He delivered a new message that was not in existence before.
52:40 – Keep yourself for your future spouse; no relationship with any other person until you meet the person that you’re going to marry (what it means to keep your chastity).
53:20 – No dating or boyfriends/girlfriends.
57:15 – Sura 72 refers to jinns visiting Masjid Tucson. Jinns are free companions of humans. Our companions are not called jinns yet. They will be when we die and they are freed. Jinns visited their masjid and they were companions of Christians, but they believed after they heard the Quran and the mathematical code.
59:05 – The Quran didn’t exist during Muhammad’s time. Therefore, this doesn’t apply to that time. The Quran was still being revealed until soon before his death.
1:00:10 – Those jinns were regular visitors of their Quran studies.
1:00:35 – Muslims means total submitters to what God says. There’s no compromising.
1:02:55 – The jinns converted after their human companions died, so they can change. Jinns were so strong with Satan initially compared to humans, so they are given more time to redeem themselves.
1:05:55 – Sura 46:29 talking about jinns going back and warning other jinns.
1:13:40 – We can exceed the rank we were during the Great Feud depending how much we develop our souls. We can go higher or lower in rank depending on how we do here.
1:14:30 – Some angels could be lower than us in rank if we develop ourselves sufficiently or we can be at the highest level like the archangels if we develop ourselves to the max.
1:15:10 – Sura 72:1 is referring to Rashad saying, “I was inspired…”. He said this statement before he realized this sura was talking about them.
1:25:55 – God is the teacher of the Quran. God will see to it that the sincere believers will reach the correct conclusions. The insincere will always be sent astray.
1:27:10 – The sermons (khutbas) may mention prophets’ names as examples from history, but the sermons (khutbas) are not part of the Contact Prayer, so it’s not the same as mentioning other names besides God.
1:28:25 – If you mention other names besides God in the Contact Prayers, you’re worshiping them.
30:10 – Explains Sura 11:46, “It is unrighteous to ask Me for something you do not know”. You shouldn’t say things you don’t know, especially things about God.
33:15 – Talks about Sura 11:49. Don’t be in a hurry to have the disbelievers wiped out. Be patient. God is giving them a chance to see the message and make a decision. The longer they are given a chance, the worse the retribution.
36:00 – God tells Satan how far he can go with inflicting punishments because He is in control.
37:05 – Believers will somehow be protected even if God decides to punish disbelievers with a nuclear explosion.
40:15 – “Masses of dark night” may not be an allegory. The eighth universe may not be adorned with stars and be in darkness. When believers visit Hell, they bring light with them.
30:50 – Someone was wearing shorts and a sweatshirt to masjid. Asking how to dress up for the mosque is like asking which heifer to sacrifice.
31:45 – Compares what to wear to masjid with what you wear to an interview; not necessarily that formal, but reasonable.
33:00 – Talks about importance of dress code for the mosque.
48:40 – Talks about why shouting at the messenger or raising your opinion above the messenger nullifies your works. An outsider can come and see this, leave the masjid, and become a disbeliever. Driving the outsider away will cause you to carry that person’s sins.
58:15 – Rashad says Edip has a severe problem and we are trying to help him; he has a very severe problem that may destroy him.
1:06:35 – Calling a fellow servant of God a liar is not treating each other in the best possible manner, whether done justly or unjustly.
1:11:35 – Rashad says Edip idolizes his opinion and unless he changes, he’s going to go to Hell.
Starts by explaining Sura 7:12 (when Satan refused to prostrate before Adam). This was after the rebellion and human beings were already given bodies. Satan had already thought he could be a god beside God years before. This was after all the creatures had already been put to death and angels were told to guard and serve humans, drive the winds, etc.
2:10 – Angels beat up disbelievers when they die because they served them with the hopes that they will repent and redeem themselves, but they died unappreciative of God.
2:50 – Explains “what prevented you from prostrating” means and Satan’s desire for free will.
4:50 – In Sura 7:16 (“since You have willed that I go astray, I will skulk for them…”), Satan acknowledges that everything happens according to God’s will.
7:20 – Some humans are worse than Satan.
16:50 – Explains Sura 7:19 (“do not approach this one tree”). Descriptions of Heaven are allegorical, so this was a law given to Adam and Eve to uphold and the law is symbolized by the tree.
19:25 – Says Adam and Eve’s bodies were down here on Earth while they were up in Heaven. Muhammad was taken to a place farther from Paradise, though he also visited Paradise.
20:00 – In Sura 17:60, “the tree that is accursed in the Quran” is the tree Adam and Eve ate from.
32:20 – Says Adam and Eve’s bodies were in Heaven, but just in another dimension since they were invisible to them, just like how the angels and jinns are right here with us, but invisible to us because they’re in a different dimension.
33:55 – “Covering themselves with the leaves of Paradise” and “go down as enemies” both indicate that their bodies were in Heaven.
47:00 – Humans were already all put to death for the first time before Adam’s clay body was created.
59:35 – God only had humans bear witness that He is the Lord and Master, not jinns.
1:13:30 – Humans have a body, soul, and spirit. The body is without life, the spirit makes the heart pump and the lungs breathe, and the soul is the person.
1:19:35 – Rashad says he wants his body cremated and flushed down the toilet.
00:15 – Zikr is God’s most beloved form of worship.
15:05 – Commemoration of God could be equivalent to 100 contact prayers. Mentioning the name of God wipes out sins. This could make up for missed prayers from the past and other past sins.
30:30 – Everything in the universe glorifies God because they decided to recognize God as the absolute Master and they have no choice, but humans are the only ones in the universe that have a choice, so when we decide from our own free will to glorify God, you attain a great achievement.
32:10 – On the Day of Judgment, when reviewing the tape of our life, you would be glad for the times when you glorified God.
34:55 – The best kind of song is the song that also commemorates God.
35:40 – Declaring God as our only Master is the highest form of freedom because no one else in the world controls your life or can touch you.
47:05 – On the Night of Destiny, the angels descend and see you commemorating God and they’re eager to help and grant you your dearest wish.
1:03:40 – Each statement of zikr deposits $100,000,000 in your post-retirement account and the heaviest statement is La Elaha Ella Allah.
1:07:20 – God pays you for commemorating Him with wealth, health, and happiness.
1:10 – God’s signs suited every age. They were big deals for those people. We have a miracle suitable for the computer age.
5:15 – You don’t do homosexuals any favor by giving them their “rights”. You have to talk them out of it, somehow. AIDS hit them selectively in San Francisco since there are other good people living there.
6:55 – If you’re doing everything right, you don’t deserve a warning. If you’re doing everything perfect, you don’t get a warning.
13:45 – The majority of the gospels are truth. The Gospel of John says Jesus is the son of God and it’s the most recent, but the others don’t.
30:15 – Satan wanted to whisper to us by being invisible, so he and jinns had to be made from a different material.
32:40 – Rashad talks about a show with a magician who he says used jinns to perform something. Jinns can’t predict the future.
44:00 – Explains Sura 55:39 and 55:41 (recognizing guilty by their looks).
52:25 – This generation is subjected to the same persecution and ridicule as Muhammad’s generation of believers.
52:40 – “If you go to the Middle East, you better disown me. I’m asking you to do that.” God says you can even disown God if you’re under those circumstances as long as your heart is full of faith.
55:20 – “We are the first generation of renewing the message”.
59:30 – Rashad says that in fifty years, millions will have believed, but they would be following the crowd so they wouldn’t receive the same amount of credit as the people from the early generations. They will be protected by their numbers.
1:01:15 – Explains Sura 35:1. Angels closest to God will be more powerful and highest in rank, so they have four wings, figuratively speaking.
1:02:40 – Satan hates your guts because he’s going to be deep in Hell. He and his troops will be in the lowest pit of Hell.
1:08:30 – Talks about people who die before the age of forty. God knew they deserved to go to Lower Heaven because of circumstances only God knows about. They perform a function. Had they lived, they would’ve been swept by circumstances.
1:09:40 – God granted Abraham his understanding because He knew that he deserved to go to the High Heaven. God protected Joseph from sin since he was one of God’s devoted servants.
1:12:30 – Had God let Martin Luther King Jr. live past forty, he would have been swept by circumstances into maybe mentioning Jesus.
Starts by reading Sura 64:1 – Even the disbeliever’s body glorifies God because they don’t control their heartbeats; God controls everything.
1:10 – God is the One who hires or fires you and decides the provisions. Somebody asked someone if they can afford another child and Rashad says that is the wrong question because God provides for that child, not you.
4:30 – Discusses Sura 10:62. Those who believe in God and lead a righteous life are nice people, honest, and God is always on their mind.
7:20 – There are only two kinds of people: people in God’s kingdom and people in Satan’s kingdom, although there are categories within each section. Satan’s kingdom has the disbelievers and the hypocrites; both fall under the bigger category of disbelievers.
7:45 – Other names for believers and disbelievers are the appreciative and the unappreciative. God gave you a lot of good things in advance and then asked you to show your appreciation.
9:00 – Discusses blessing of eyesight and being able to see colors and how some people are blind and colorblind; he says God’s people are perfect, anyway.
9:30 – The people who are not worshiping God alone are not appreciative.
10:50 – A lot of people ask, “Why did God bring me here? I didn’t want to come here.” We are here because we committed a gross crime and God is giving us a chance to denounce idol worship.
14:40 – Crippled people are victims of Satan. They removed themselves from God’s protection. Talks about Rabbi Kushner and his son who had progeria.
15:50 – By blaspheming against God, Rabbi Kushner removed himself from God’s protection and both he and his son were victimized by Satan.
16:20 – Angels are some of the best surgeons in the world.
22:25 – Talks about the purification process. The believers may go through a purification process, but they will emerge like a gem in the end.
22:50 – The purpose of the purification process is to make you a perfect human being: someone who doesn’t lie or cheat and is trustworthy and righteous. God will take each one of these at a time and cleanse you from it through a polishing process.
23:40 – The end of the disbelievers’ lives is always bad and the last 15-20 years of their lives are the most miserable. The opposite is true for believers.
25:10 – You get a pinch immediately every time you miss a prayer, for example, until you do the correlation and fix your mistake. The correlation is immediate.
26:00 – God’s pinches are all restorable. You won’t lose a finger, for example, because you can’t restore that. Might get a headache, lose a few dollars, etc.
27:25 – Messengers are not the ones being followed; it is God’s instructions that are being followed. Messengers are also required to follow God’s instructions.
33:55 – Sura 64:7 is the Quran speaking.
35:30 – An angel can hold the Earth in their hand.
39:00 – Why does God want us to believe if He doesn’t need us? It’s because He loves us, wants us to be saved, redeemed, and happy in this world and in the Hereafter.
1:14:55 – Sura 3:45 calls Jesus “a Word from Him” because he was created by a word: be and he was.
1:10 – The position of your arms during Salat doesn’t matter, but recommends you to do the same as whatever the imam is doing during group prayers.
8:30 – The person who doesn’t pray before sunrise ends up with a shrunken, weak soul and is born into eternity deformed. They cannot fall prostrate on the Day of Judgment because they’re symbolically deformed.
9:20 – If we deserve it, God will guide us into waking up before sunrise to do the Dawn Prayer.
10:15 – We may miss prayers once in a while (don’t feel too guilty).
15:25 – We should schedule our life around prayers, not the other way around. Most people who believe fall into idol worship because when you give priority to other things, that’s your idol. It’s different when you’re forced by circumstances to miss a prayer or Friday prayer once in a while.
21:25 – Believers have the privilege of editing their video tapes.
21:50 – No virus can attack you. You may go through tests where you may be invaded by a virus or headache, but it’s restorable.
30:50 – God makes things easy and enjoyable, but you have to break the initial barrier.
31:05 – Talks about how he doesn’t set the alarm for dawn and he wakes up on time for prayer; he thinks it’s either his jinn or maybe an angel.
33:00 – Talks about the “difficult path”. Discipline is what God means by calling it the difficult path.
43:15 – Working hard to redeem yourself is different than having pain and suffering.
44:35 – Believers’ lives don’t have pain and suffering. Even with tests, things are restorable.
50:15 – “The day that reveals” in Sura 91:3 refers to how we can see everything during the daylight.
1:23:50 – The numerically structured book is the Quran. The wicked will call it tales from the past, but the righteous will witness it and be able to see the miracle of the Quran. Sijjeen and Elleyyeen are the same book, the Quran.
1:25:35 – This explains why disbelievers say the Quran is full of hell, fire, and brimstone because this is all they see.
8:15 – Talks about “invisible giants” standing next to you. If someone is plotting against you in Stockholm, Sweden, your giant will be there, taking care of them.
8:55 – Getting up for the Dawn Prayer is striving.
9:35 – Talks about Job’s test. It doesn’t happen now because it’s a new era.
34:40 – Sura 94:7 tells you that you must grab every chance you can get to feed your soul. Anything you do that doesn’t have to do with God is a waste of time. “Whenever possible you shall strive” means you must never pass up a chance to strive in the cause of God (Friday prayer, Quran study, etc.). You give priority to God’s commandments over everything else, then if you have time, you do other things.
40:20 – Talks about beggars. You have to be extremely kind to them. You can’t be suspicious.
44:00 – Explains Sura 93:7 (“He found you astray and guided you”). Muhammad was astray before he was guided.
53:10 – The implosion happens when God comes to the universe.
56:30 – Explains Sura 81:5 (“beasts are summoned”). All animals are resurrected and will be gathered on the Day of Resurrection, so you can meet your pets on the Day of Judgment.
58:45 – Talks about lies attributed to Masjid Tucson, like men and women praying side by side or women leading the prayer.

1:04:00 – Marriage is a contract between two people and when one’s out, the contract is invalid.
1:05:15 – God makes it up to the oppressed.
1:11:00 – Talks about the translation of the Quran being authorized.
1:16:00 – Explains Sura 81:21 regarding Rashad being obeyed and trusted.
1:17:45 – It’s God’s design to appoint messengers after the age of forty, except for Jesus.
1:19:35 – Rashad being summoned to the high horizon was in the first universe.
1:22:15 – Talks about invisible stamp of Heaven and Hell on people. There’s nothing you can do to guide the people who are stamped Hell or make them understand. The people stamped Heaven would accept it right away.
1:23:45 – People who went along with the crowd who did not side with Satan in their heart deserve to be redeemed, so they’re put in circumstances that bring them in touch with the message, like being assigned to a certain home and put in circumstances that result in them being guided.
1:27:20 – The elite of the elite are people who exist at the same time when the message is new and others are rejecting it and persecuting those who believe; they are those who accept the message even during that time.
1:28:35 – Moses’ teacher was sent in human form; could’ve been a human, but was probably an angel, though God didn’t tell us that information.
5:00 – Not following in parents’ footsteps takes killing of the ego.
17:30 – 120,000 people were estimated to watch the Red Sea part, but Moses only had two people believe with him in the end, not including Aaron.
20:25 – Earth is a halfway house to Hell.
21:50 – We must believe God will turn sins into credits after repenting; Satan may give you a guilt complex over old or new sins.
22:30 – Repentance is all about pledging that you’ll never commit a sin again, even though you probably will a few times until you realize the price is too high.
23:35 – Read the Quran everyday, at least two pages.
25:35 – Ego is not that somebody comes and slaps you in the face and you turn the other cheek; this is not relevant to your spiritual salvation. We must kill our ego in that we observe God’s commandments, regardless of what people think.
26:20 – God is the One who controls your happiness or misery, not any person. Therefore, if you’re wise or intelligent, you don’t care what people say; you worship God and you don’t care who blames you for it. Believers don’t worry about the blaming of the blamers.
29:00 – When you shy away and don’t practice your religion, this is reverting. God only cares about you if you believe. You must be humble with the believers and stern with the disbelievers.
30:15 – Mount Sinai was physically raised above them like an umbrella.
35:10 – If people laugh at you for saying God willing, let them. They can’t control your happiness or health. You say it with courage and enthusiasm. You’re delivering a message when you do that and reminding people of God.
36:40 – Explains Sura 2:102. Solomon wasn’t a disbeliever, so he didn’t abuse the power God put at his disposal with the jinns. Talks about witchcraft and people using jinns for magic.
41:45 – You can generalize Sura 2:104 about Raa’ena and Unzurna. If words sound like bad words, you don’t have to use them; it’s better to avoid them.
49:00 – Rashad explains an incident where someone tried to use witchcraft against him and it backfired on her.
51:10 – Explains breaking up of marriages through jinns and how that could happen if you’re out of God’s protection.
53:40 – Angels guarding you are much stronger than jinns, but if you’re out of God’s protection and the person is an idol worshiper who is against God, the angels guarding that person hates him and lets the jinns go ahead at him.
55:00 – When you miss a prayer, you’re out of God’s protection, but God puts limits on how bad your pinch is depending on what you deserve.
1:01:35 – God wants the strong and disciplined people in His kingdom, not the lazy ones.
1:10:30 – When you attain certainty, you see miracles.
1:22:40 – God gives us messages through our superstitions. Talks about license plates being multiples of nineteen as signs.
1:24:30 – If there are typing errors in the Quran, you can be sure they are designed by God as loopholes for disbelievers.
1:28:40 – The ISBN of the hardcover blue Quran is divisible by nineteen.
34:00 – Important to have no grief or fear and to have full confidence in God; difficult talking people out of getting insurance, for example (it takes a long time for people to develop that confidence).
35:05 – Grieving over anything you miss and worrying about the future means you are not in God’s dominion.
36:05 – If you apply for a job and don’t get it, you don’t grieve. You understand that God doesn’t want this for you for some reason. God sees the roads ahead of you and picks out the roads that are best for you, so you must have that confidence in Him. Nothing is hidden from God.
1:00:25 – God wanted this message to come here gradually. The mathematical miracle of the Quran used to be called the perpetual miracle of Muhammad (even when it was called that, the traditional Muslims wouldn’t accept it).
4:00 – Disbelievers may seem to have it all, but they aren’t happy. Money and children are a source of misery for them.
8:20 – Hypocrites look and act like believers, but spread doubts.
11:10 – Give Zakat to relatives, unless they’re fighting you actively.
14:30 – If you don’t care to have money repaid to you, you don’t have to write down that financial transaction; you write it down if you expect to be paid back.
17:15 – Believers who believe in God, the Hereafter, follow the Quran alone, and worship God alone, but that’s the extent of it are good people and go to Heaven, though they’re not the same rank as those who strive.
18:20 – Talks about delivering the message with wisdom and kind enlightenment (don’t chase them away and keep the door open for them).
19:40 – There’s a point when God asks you to give up on the disbelievers (Sura 13:31).
35:00 – Explains Sura 56:79 (none can grasp it, except the sincere).
45:00 – Explains how he knew the two verses in Sura 9 were the ones that violated the mathematical code.
1:10 – The utmost submitter never complains and is content with whatever God gives them.
2:35 – God wants to make you perfect. God takes one of your defects at a time and keeps after you until you’re cleansed.
3:25 – The utmost submitter has a perfect life. The only reason you get a headache is because of something you’ve done. There’s no exceptions to that.
4:35 – An utmost submitter has no problems of any kind. It’s almost unbelievable.
10:05 – Talks about admissions tests being very exacting and usually within the first five years you claim to worship God alone. Talks about someone who temporarily lost his wife, kids, car, etc. Everything would be restored and twice as much.
13:20 – Feeling for disbelieving grandparents, for example, could lead to wishful thinking, like thinking maybe they didn’t know or their intention was good, even though they have the message, the Quran. If they deserved better, God would’ve seen to it that they would receive correction. Satan could capitalize on this by saying you defend an idol worshiper.
16:00 – He says he doesn’t compromise on white lies or little insurance. Comprising on something slightly away from God’s law could lead to Satan capitalizing on this.
20:10 – If you give God the credit, you can brag.
21:10 – Neither Satan nor the angels know what’s in your mind. God is the only One who knows your innermost thoughts.
22:05 – Your companion knows because your companion’s in there and puts thoughts in you. It’s your job to sift through them and counter bad thoughts.
27:35 – Looking at your kids and saying MashaAllah invokes angels to protect them. Saying “In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, there is no other god besides God” when you get up in the morning invokes an angel to stay with you all day and see to it that you have a nice day.
31:30 – Heaven and Hell start here.
31:50 – Talks about someone who committed suicide under forty and went to heaven.
42:00 – He says he believes Sura 38:15 is talking about the Arabs (“these people can expect a single blow, from which they never recover”).
45:00 – Jews were called God’s chosen people, but they didn’t follow the scripture, so they suffered. Arabs deserted the Quran so their retribution is inevitable.
49:40 – Explains story of David’s judgment with the 99 sheep.
58:05 – “Heavens and the earth” are not the same thing as Paradise.
1:04:25 – A human that is destined to believe is matched with a jinn that is destined to believe and vice versa.
1:04:50 – Astrology is just observations.
1:05:50 – Some people may see manifestations of jinns and think they’re ghosts.
52:05 – People bring destruction on themselves, i.e. Sodom and Gomorrah.
52:45 – Parents remove their children from God’s protection. God assigns children to certain homes. Children are not as innocent as they seem. God knew in advance Hitler would be a tyrant.
54:00 – God knows which souls are good or bad before they are born. In the Bible, God said you will remove yourselves from His protection for four generations. When a baby is born into a certain home, God picks out a good or bad soul to be placed there.
55:35 – We are in an era now where if you believe in God and follow His commandments, neither you nor your family would need a blood transfusion to start with.
57:00 – Tells story of when he would swim in the canal in Egypt as a kid and everyone who would swim would usually contract a certain disease, but he never did.
58:20 – You can live in the virus and germs and God will protect you.
17:00 – If people try to sneak into Lower Heaven, they will find it worse than Hell because they cannot stand the physical closeness to God. It’s completely up to us to be as close to God as we want; God doesn’t put a single person in Hell because they themselves chose it.
1:01:00 – Says he suspects that the world will end with only believers and that’s when Satan throws up his hands because he has no more constituents.
10:00 – Explains Sura 58:8 about secret conspiracy.
12:10 – Explains estranging the wives as their mothers.
16:10 – Says this is a form of slavery which is why the expiation involves freeing slaves.
18:30 – Talks about Sura 58:7 and believing in the invisible dimension (“no people can conspire secretly without Him being their fourth…”).

17:55 – Fasting is a private form of worship.
18:50 – Talks about anonymous charity being better.
4:25 – Talks about people who remove their families from God’s protection. Souls assigned to certain homes. Evil souls are assigned to houses of people who refuse to uphold God’s commandments. Believers will get his/her way.
6:45 – If both parents are believers, it’s not a guarantee that the children will be believers because the word guarantee is too strong, but generally, yes. In this new era, the believers will get their way. This is a difficult era to believe because there are too many distractions.
11:10 – Abraham was ridiculing his people by saying, “Maybe this is my Lord,” to the sun, moon, etc. because he has obviously seen the sun, moon, etc. before. There’s a connection between these and telling them that he disowns their idolatry.
15:10 – He says don’t touch your kids (slapping/beating). You’ll be sorry.
16:50 – Beating your kids is a Satanic trick because they’ll connect the beating with whatever you want to promote.
18:15 – If kids are behaving in this way (in response to another person’s example), it’s the fault of the parents. Parents’ responsibility to set the example.
26:05 – Says Eric is taking them away from the Quran by discussing politics and school systems.
28:25 – Rashad tells Eric that he thinks he is a bad influence on them and suggests he should go back to Switzerland; his behavior reflects what he’s saying.
36:20 – God says that in Heaven, you get anything you wish for and the believers’ Heaven starts here. Everything that belongs to you is in God’s hand.
48:50 – Explains believers treating each other amicably in the best possible manner. Devil driving a wedge between believers would be violating the rule about believers being members of one family by being averse to another believer and contradicting the commandment.
54:00 – Explains God preferring some prophets over others. God prefers by necessity.
55:25 – Jesus was born as a prophet.
1:04:40 – Talks about temporary marriages being prostitution.
1:10:50 – Explains Sura 39:68. Even angels would be struck unconscious, except for Israfil.
1:13:10 – People looking for excuses in the Quran will find it because God puts deliberate traps in the Quran for those people.
1:19:30 – There’s no time sequence as far as God is concerned.
3:10 – Discusses Sura 46:8 when applied to himself. He says that if he is a liar, that is his problem, not ours. He tells you to worship God alone, so if he is lying, that is his problem, but as far as we are concerned, we can benefit from the message.
6:20-6:50 – People who don’t believe Rashad Khalifa is a messenger, though they were given the message and proof, are going to Hell.
7:05 – The minimum criteria is for people who don’t know (middle of the jungle). Anytime you show them proof from God, they would accept it.
8:05 – Jesus isn’t considered one of the Children of Israel; he’s considered a vanguard of a new movement and a whole new religion.
9:50 – Talks about Rabbi Judah the Pious.
23:40 – We used to be angels in God’s kingdom.
1:15 – A person living in central Africa in the jungle who never heard of Muhammad or Jesus has no excuse since we all already witnessed God (natural instinct mentioned). You can’t blame ignorance or your parents.
10:30 – Some angels agreed with Satan. They became jinns.
12:00 – Talks about crippled girl in wheelchair who came to the masjid. Rashad says she would’ve been healed if she continued to believe.
22:00 – When people call on other people beside God for any reason, they’re immediately among Satan’s constituents and out of God’s mercy. He says he used to be one of these people.
27:30 – Asking, “Why did God do this to us?”, is an invalid question because every one of us was asked if we would rather have the freedom of choice or submit and we all said we want the freedom of choice.
28:30 – We underestimated Satan’s power and thought it would be easy.
32:50 – Explains the accuracy behind why the Quran says “you shall not worship except God” instead of just “worship God”. People worship God and go to Hell because they also put another name beside Him.
34:00 – When you believe there is no other god besides God, you’re a king and queen on earth; you enter God’s kingdom with a perfect life of no headaches, diseases, problems, or traffic tickets. He finds this to be the most difficult thing for people to believe. People who left the masjid had deformed babies.
35:50 – We are in a new age where if you stay with God, everything is perfect, not like in the old times where you had to go and prove yourself by giving your life and being killed in the cause of God since it’s all mental and based on logic now.
36:30-39:30 – Explains the story of Rabbi Kushner; he had a child with progeria that died at 14 years old. Talks about movie idea involving Rabbi Kushner.
39:50 – Even when you’re in the shower, for ablution, you still go through the steps in the shower.
40:50 – Meditation during the night is not required, but it’s extra.
42:15 – You can’t ask forgiveness for an idol worshiper. You’re not accepting God’s decision when He says He doesn’t forgive idol worship when you still ask for them.
43:05 – Muhammad was an idol worshiper. This makes a better teacher and messenger out of him. Rashad used to pray to saints.
44:25 – Rashad’s father knew Arabic very well and memorized the Quran, but it didn’t help him.
46:25 – You can ask for forgiveness for other believers, even if they’re dead, but you can’t name a person since you don’t know if they’re a believer or idol worshiper. That’s why the Quran says this generally.
47:15 – It doesn’t help anybody if you pray for their forgiveness after they died.
49:45 – Answers “Why does God want us to pray if everything is written down already?” Prayer is a fantastic form of worship because it indicates that you believe in God.
53:30 – Tests never hurt permanently. Punishments can leave permanent damage, but tests don’t. You wouldn’t lose a finger, for example. You might lose money or destroy your car, but it gets made up to you if you pass the test.
55:50 – Explains why subjects always get repeated in the Quran.
4:50 – Talks about Moses’ mother. You don’t fear for your children when you are with God.
5:50 – If you worry, you aren’t a strong believer and you don’t have confidence in God.
11:50 – He says he’s positive that God will only assign good souls to our homes; this is a whole new era.
12:30 – Moses’ mother is an example of God letting the human being know the future. God picks out whomever He wills to give future information to and Moses’ mother was one of them.
18:15 – Read Sura 28:15 (Moses accidentally committed manslaughter). God arranged it so that man would die at that moment as Moses punched him so Moses would leave Egypt, meet and marry his wife, then come back to ask Pharaoh to believe. It was God’s plan (something that looked bad, but was actually good, just like Joseph in the prison).
19:55 – Continues reading from Sura 28:16. This would fall under the Quranic law that you may dislike something that is good for you. The moral of the story is that you must completely submit to God; whatever is happening, you have to accept it. Know that it is for your own good if you’re a believer.
23:05 – Moses was hot-tempered and physically strong.
24:30 – Explains difference between Moses and the Children of Israel asking to see God. Moses was speaking to God, so it was a natural curiosity for him to ask to see God, but the Children of Israel asked out of defiance.
28:00 – Martyrs aren’t only the people that die in battle, fighting. People who die believing in God and His messenger are the saints and martyrs.
33:55 – Talks about the date he fulfilled the covenant.
39:40 – If you love anything too much, then Satan will claim to God that if He takes this away from you, you would blaspheme against Him. You love something too much if you would do anything to keep it. Satan would feel like if you had to choose between God and the thing, you would choose the thing. If Satan takes the thing and you pass the test, God would make it up to you.
40:50 – Talks about example in Sura 7:189-190 about God giving them a good baby that they ended up idolizing. People become so busy with the baby and the baby runs their life. If the baby causes people to stop attending Quran studies or doing the Dawn Prayer, then this is too much.
44:40 – Talks about Sura 57:25 and not being afraid to profess faith even outside of masjid.
47:25 – You either believe, reject, or are neutral about a subject because you need to study the evidence first.
48:05 – Evidence isn’t arguable because it’s all physical facts, no opinions.
50:10 – The Bible says you can judge a tree by its fruit.
53:20 – He says he doesn’t have insurance; he has insurance with God.
54:20 – He says he was told to devote his time to the message and stop working.
57:00 – If someone accepts the Quran, the miracle, but not Rashad, and they’re not fighting you, you have to discuss with them logically.
14:20 – You could be the nicest person in the world, be charitable, and still go to Hell because it was in vain.
27:35 – Allah is not a name.
25:55 – The definition of poor is needy; if you need more, you’re poor (doesn’t matter how much money you have). The definition of rich is content, no matter how much you have, as long as you’re satisfied and you have enough.
26:55 – You may become a millionaire or maybe not, but in either case, you’ll be content. You wouldn’t be greedy.
1:03:50 – You cannot say a person’s going to Heaven or Hell because people change. Tomorrow, they may believe better than you.
1:04:35 – You can say if they continue and die like this, then they would go to Hell because God says this.
1:06:00 – In regards to suspicion, you have to give people the benefit of the doubt. You shouldn’t draw conclusions with no proof.
Starts by saying innovations creep up on us. When you’re by yourself, you may do extra prostrations or commemoration when you feel like it, but in a group or in public, just stick to the prayer or else, before you know it, parts may be added to the Salat.
3:15 – When disbelievers and hypocrites give up on you and find that your argument is very strong, they say you worship Rashad Khalifa.
4:15 – When disbelievers and hypocrites tell you you worship Rashad Khalifa, you just look at them and smile because this reveals their stupidity. We go out of our way to destroy idols.
8:45 – God’s truth is in the Bible and human injections are very obvious. You use Quran as the ultimate reference. If it contradicts the Quran, it’s out.
9:40 – You don’t want to appease any human beings. When they tell you that you worship Rashad Khalifa and it bothers you, then you have an ego because you worry about what people say.
11:50 – When you give your heart to God, your spouse will love you. Your boss will love you. Everything else will be at your disposal.
13:00 – You don’t need to worry about provisions and God must be your only priority.
15:15 – Men are stronger physically, they are the bread earners, and they tend to sometimes tyrannize women without even feeling it. God is very harsh with oppressors. We have to go out of our way to be very kind and considerate with our spouses and not take them for granted or inflict any mental or physical persecution on them.
17:00 – The name you have on your birth certificate is the name God gave you.
26:25 – Women should keep their name when they get married, but in this country, there are some inconveniences that come with that, like with check accounts, civil laws, etc. If you’re forced by circumstances without being malicious or deliberate, then you’re not committing a sin. A compromise would be to add the husband’s name next to her family name.
32:20 – Saleh, Hud, and Lot were messengers, not prophets.
35:00 – Not all the prophets are mentioned in the Quran. Rashad said he met around 20-30 prophets when fulfilling the covenant.
51:10 – Explains how the prophets support the Messenger of the Covenant.
55:45 – The method of death, the type that we see, doesn’t make any difference because the nervous system shuts off immediately, anyway. What happens in the other dimension that is invisible to us is the real thing.
56:40 – Believers don’t have a lingering, painful death. No matter what the method of death is on the outside, there is no suffering for believers.
1:03:15 – God is not a spirit; He is physical.
00:45 – More humans are redeemed than jinns.
26:25 – You recognize the good and bad person by their actions, words, and what they produce. It’s a big fallacy that it’s the intention that counts; it counts when the person is perfect: they worship God alone, uphold the word of God alone, believe in the Hereafter, etc.
30:15 – People were primitive before the time of Abraham, like in Noah’s time. There was no Salat or fasting during Ramadan. Just believing in God was sufficient to save them.
42:00 – Talks about disbelievers getting afflicted with problems, cancer, and disasters.
43:50 – Advised Edip and his wife to live close to the mosque.
45:00 – He sometimes deliberately makes mistakes to show that he makes mistakes.
48:50 – Explains Saleh’s miracle with the camel. This camel would drink only on a specific day (may have had other characteristics not told to us).
7:55 – Tells story of how the miracle of the Quran came out of the biggest brewery in the world.
16:00 – Satan knew about the mathematical miracle, i.e. Bahaism.
18:35 – Hell is not fire since it’s allegorical.
24:35 – You’re walking around now like a king or queen on Earth.
28:30 – Heaven is not trees, spouses, and fruit (allegories).
29:45 – We will not feel sorry for those in Hell, even if they were close to you.
30:15 – Talks about his father. His father said I’m not going into the masjid until you add Muhammad’s name in the call to prayer and Rashad said that he couldn’t go in there because idol worshipers are filth.
38:15 – Politics don’t mean a thing.
44:35 – Since the Earth took four days to create and the heavens and the earth took six days in total, this tells us that there is no life out there. Everything needed to be calculated.
48:40 – Talks about the big bang (not an uncontrolled explosion).
51:05 – An angel could hold the planet Earth in one hand.
51:50 – An angel comes to keep the devil away when you seek refuge in God from Satan.
55:00 – Explains blasphemy of people thinking Muhammad would intercede for them. It’s like they’re making God Muhammad’s secretary. The concept of intercession is like setting up rivals with God.
57:20 – When people get sick and thank someone else for healing them, they are setting up rivals with God.
59:00 – Pope probably saw signs that Mary is the mother of God, so he is sent astray by God and thinks he is seeing signs.
1:23:50 – The Supreme Judge in Saudi Arabia issued a fatwa that Rashad should be killed.
00:20 – Jesus said all the righteous are children of God.
4:30 – Talks about the smoke and end of the world. First, the smoke will come and envelope the whole earth within 50-100 years from now. People will turn to God and believe, then God will relieve the retribution. People will revert 20-30 years after that, then Gog and Magog will come before the world ends.
24:00 – Ameen is Satan’s word.
40:40 – Alcohol is prohibited.
45:10 – Nobody can live a sinless life.
1:01:00 – Things are getting out of hand. Where did AIDS come from? Satan’s trying to rule this world without diseases or problems, but he cannot.
1:21:50 – Jesus made mistakes. Gives example of a Bible verse where Jesus was asking God for forgiveness, so he must’ve made a mistake.
3:25 – People who argued and were anxious to voice opinions failed to benefit from the information.
5:50 – Eventually, your companion will cooperate with you and wake you up for dawn because they would want to pray, too.
6:50 – If someone has a bad habit and someone says they have a bad habit, that’s backbiting (let them find out for themselves).
9:00 – A submitter doesn’t argue with God and accepts the Quran. When they read the Quran and certain things don’t make sense, they can either submit or argue with God. You accept what it says and still have doubt until you reach certainty. Through worshiping God, you reach certainty.
12:10 – When you reach certainty, miracles happen every day (Sura 2:118).
15:50 – You give your Zakat on the day of harvest, no matter how small. He would pay in advance if it’s too small (clarifies prior statement from Principles of Friday Prayer video).
23:25 – Explains Islamic political system. You don’t force an idea on a minority. You talk to them back and forth and try to convince them until you unanimously agree. The minority may be right even if it’s one person, then they would convince the other side.
37:10 – Aqiqah is superstition.
38:25 – You can do anything you want as long as you don’t think it’s religion.
42:30 – When your video tape is being played, your hand is speaking against you without saying anything (we would have a different body, not this body).
44:00 – When it comes to usury, there is a victim. Whenever there is a victim, there’s a sin. There is no victim with bank interest.
49:00 – Talks about how when some people talk to the dead, it’s the jinn of the person that is coming through.
53:45 – Talks about God’s system of working and earning money. If everyone was a millionaire, who would fix your toilet when it stops working?
56:15 – The theoretical principle of sitting somewhere and worshiping doesn’t work when you put it in practical terms because you’ll eventually need to work for money.
1:02:50 – Explains confounding the truth with falsehood.
1:05 – Our stand must be firm on the side of God. Denounce that wishy-washy standard.
2:15 – Make your stand known orally and publicly.
3:05 – If they’re not actively opposing you, they’re not enemies of God. They may still be examining the evidence and you’ll be able to tell if they’re hostile or not.
4:05 – If someone is idolizing someone else with God, you have to make your stand known that you don’t like that and you’re not their friend until they abandon their idolatry, otherwise, you’d be like them. If they’re still neutral, it’s different.
6:00 – If they declare themselves as unbelievers, they’re enemies of God, then you have to run away from them.
8:45 – If it is personal friction, the Quran says to love your enemy because it has nothing to do with God. If someone does bad to you, you do good to them and perhaps, they become your friend in the future.
9:55 – Love and hate for the sake of God.
11:40 – If a relative declares that they put Muhammad beside God, but don’t fight you, you don’t have to disown them.
12:20 – The parents have a special position.
16:20 – You have to use your own judgment to see if someone is hopelessly stuck in disbelief. If there’s hope that someone may become a believer, you better be as diplomatic as you can to help them. When you help someone come to the truth, you get a lot of credit.
21:35 – If you’re asking someone to do the five prayers, you better be doing them yourself.
22:00 – Talks about unity and sectarianism. There shouldn’t be any differences.
24:50 – Women leading the prayer is an innovation. It came down from Abraham and there’s been no precedent set that a woman can lead the prayer. Any change would be an innovation. The woman is dignified and it’s more distracting for the men.
26:50 – The word used for people who commit gross crimes having their hands/feet cut off on alternate sides (Sura 5:33) versus the word used in the verses in reference to Joseph and thieves is different.
28:40 – If you showed up late to Friday Prayer and you missed the whole sermon, you still do two rakats. Chances are you’d ask what the sermon was about and you’re praying in a congregation. The word Jummah, by definition, is a group.
34:45 – Explains Sura 43:33 (mansions with silver roofs).
40:15 – It’s very difficult to be a rich believer because you get distracted.
44:00 – Rich believers have a better chance to be charitable, help others, publish the Quran, etc. (things that need money).
53:40 – You don’t eat in Heaven.
1:06:50 – Required to make decision to worship God alone before age forty.
1:10:10 – If you believe the messenger and he made a mistake, on the Day of Judgment, you can say you obeyed the messenger.
1:11:30 – Righteous means abide by the Quran’s commandments and prohibitions.
1:12:15 – Explains difference between believer and submitter.
1:19:00 – Tests will be finished when you attain certainty.
22:10 – Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, and Jacob all received a practical scripture and were all prophets.
33:10 – People who prostrate before God in this life are the only ones who will be able to prostrate before God on the Day of Judgment.
36:50 – Tells a story about how the truth can be confounded with falsehood (Jehovah’s witness at the Karmallys’ house).
43:40 – Everybody is a potential believer.
44:05 – Explains 3:75 (footnote about Muhammad being a gentile, not illiterate, and he wrote the Quran with his own hand).
00:20 – The name of a sura reflects the most important component of the chapter.
1:25 – The smoke will envelope the whole earth.
4:45 – Saying God is infinite would mean that God is here, but God is not here physically. He controls everything remotely.
24:20 – Abraham made the first covenant on earth with God.
37:25 – If you happen to contract cancer or AIDS, God can remove it; angels are some of the best surgeons.
50:50 – God wants people to be free to obey Him or disobey Him. If you go to a country that says nobody can drink alcohol, are the people abstaining from alcohol because they’re following God’s commandments or the law of the land? God wants people to be free to drink if they want to or take drugs if they want to. (Abortions are also discussed).
52:00 – The Quran is in favor of absolute freedom and no interference from the government, whatsoever (extreme libertarianism).
53:15 – Recites Al-Fatehah for submitter who is sick.
27:15 – Why did God will that the enemies of the prophet fabricate lies? Sura 6:113 answers this question. These fabrications expose whether someone is really a believer or not.
40:00 – If someone is oppressed and cannot practice his religion by not being able to pray, fast, give to charity, or go to Hajj, he should move on to another place.
42:55 – It doesn’t do any good to pray for the dead because it all depends on the person’s deeds during this life; that’s what counts.
43:30 – Any interest that is fixed and guaranteed is considered usury, but if it fluctuates as a result of investing, then it’s lawful.
44:05 – Taking usury is unlawful, but if you’re forced to pay it, you’re considered a victim and you’re not sinning (mortgage).
44:45 – Insurance is considered unlawful because it is a game of chance and gambling. It indicates lack of knowledge about God because if you are with God, nothing bad will happen to you and God will take care of you. It also indicates lack of confidence with God, but if you’re forced by circumstances to have insurance without being deliberate or malicious, then you’re not committing a sin.
46:45 – The rich believer is better than the weak and poor believer. It is in Satan’s best interest to keep you poor and unable to further the cause of God in any way or increase your knowledge in any way or benefit from God’s provisions.
51:05 – Giving organs or blood as donations is fine because the body is just a garment and not important at all, so if it’s going to help another human being, go ahead and do it by all means.
51:55 – God did not create us to see who is going to believe or not believe since He already knows.
53:40 – Once we make our free choice to believe or disbelieve, God will either create circumstances to guide us if we choose Him as our God or will create circumstances to augment our disbelief and idol worship if we decide to idolize someone else besides God.
11:30 – If you know that God is doing everything, you will not object. You will never be unhappy. You will be a submitter.
30:40 – God created the man with more ego.
34:35 – Everything glorifies God (wall, carpet, tape recorder, etc.) because there are atoms moving in precise orbits in accordance with God’s law and never deviate; otherwise, all of a sudden, a book would become gold or lead.
42:30 – Talks about Sura 39:15 (losing soul and families). A soul that is shrunk is repulsed by everything else.
47:00 – Jinn is a baby when you’re a baby.
47:50 – As soon as the human being begins to reason, so does the jinn.
55:20 – Your Zakat contribution is insignificant. It will not counteract and correct the damage Satan is doing by his incompetence, but it is our duty to be charitable.
59:35 – We have a great responsibility to give the correct answer. You can’t acquiesce to people and give in to their wishes. There’s too much at stake (no white lies).
1:00:30 – Satan is envious of us because we have hope of being redeemed back to God’s kingdom. Satan has no hope to be redeemed back to God’s kingdom. He wants to take as many of us as he can with him.
1:04:15 – Satan’s main target are the believers. Satan waits for you to make a mistake, like missing a prayer or not saying Bismillah when you get up in the morning, so he can inflict you with a headache, flat tire, etc.
1:12:00 – God is mistranslated as Father in some verses in the Bible.
1:14:45 – Fear, worry, and grief come from Satan. Anger happens, but believers suppress and control it.
1:15:55 – Insurance agents are probably very close to Satan because fear is the devil’s tool. Insurance is all based on fear.
1:17:45 – Believers have no phobias. They know not a scratch will touch them if they’re in God’s protection.
1:24:35 – Joseph’s brothers prostrated to God, not Joseph.
1:25:35 – There are traps in the Quran for unbelievers.
1:26:00 – In Joseph’s dream, the sun represented his father, the moon represented his mother, and the eleven planets represented his brothers.
15:30 – Most people, no matter what you do, will not believe. God knows these are the creatures who committed that blasphemy billions of years ago. Of the minority that believe, the majority will fall into idol worship because this is what brought us here, so that’s why we have that tendency to idolize saints and prophets.
1:30:00 – Gabriel gave Muhammad specific instructions every time he released the Quran from Muhammad’s soul to his memory as to where verses belong and Muhammad wrote the verses down with instructions next to them. He left the Quran with instructions on the side as to which sura goes after which sura and where verses go.
15:10 – Believing in God alone is a prerequisite for acceptance of good works. Good works are utterly in vain if the person doesn’t believe in God alone.
24:55 – If you have friends that are Muhammadans, this is the time to disown them. You’re making a choice between God and their friendship.
36:40 – Regarding extra prostrations, he doesn’t recommend prostrating in the same format as the Contact Prayers; just do it from your heart.
44:20 – Someone doesn’t believe in the Hereafter if you tell them Quran alone, word of God alone, and they don’t like it.
51:20 – They raise their kids, pay their debts, finish all their affairs, and they’re ready to go when believers’ time of death comes.
1:03:45 – Talks about Sura 101:4. People come out like swarms of butterflies.
1:07:30 – People never die and come back to life; that’s just an out-of-body experience.
1:08:25 – Starts talking about deja-vu experiences.
1:13:30 – These experiences are a quality of the soul. Some dreams have significance, some are nonsense– don’t worry about them or try to interpret them.
1:23:10 – You cannot sacrifice an animal without mentioning the name of God.
(repeated from audios 21 and 22)
37:40 – Abraham’s scripture was all practical. There was no writing or reading at the time of Abraham.
21:20 – You can measure the growth of your soul based on how easily you wake up for the dawn prayer, for example.
42:20 – Explains Sura 73:20 about meditating at night. Night begins at sunset and ends at sunrise so if you do the 5 contact prayers, you satisfy this requirement because doing the sunset, night, and dawn prayer is already one-third of the night.
43:20 – Reading the Quran at dawn is a strong recommendation.
1:01:00 – People who believe that Muhammad was the last messenger are not believers.
1:02:40 – Talks about how to distinguish between a real and fake messenger. He must advocate the worship of God alone.
1:04:00 – He must also be supported by a God-given proof and not ask for money or wage for himself.
1:04:45 – Muhammad’s miracle was the Quran.
28:20 – Animals go to Lower Heaven. Humans who make the choice to uphold God’s absolute authority go to High Heaven.
33:05 – God does not want robots. Different types of robots: some who do whatever you say, some who can think and say yes or no, or some who have a mind of their own, but appreciate you and do whatever you want them to do by choice.
36:00 – Talks about natural instinct. Brings up people in the middle of the desert who never had the Quran or messengers. Uses Abraham as an example.
28:40 – Any money that enters your pocket, whether you work for it or not, you pay Zakat on it.
29:05 – You don’t need to pay Zakat on loaned money because it’s already been purified.
38:45 – Talks about the Bible verse that says to the Children of Israel: if you don’t keep God’s commandments, you will be cursed and your children will be cursed up to four generations.
39:10 – Door of repentance is closed on Arabs till the end of the world.
King of Chaos
21:45 – God created the angels to perform functions where the existence of God is not necessary or simply devastating. God gave the angels immense powers. One angel can hold the planet Earth in one hand.
25:45 – The first reason for creating the human race was to expose Satan.
28:20 – If we choose Satan’s kingdom, we belong in Satan’s kingdom. If we choose God’s kingdom, then we belong in God’s kingdom. This choice depends on siding with God’s point of view (God alone is Lord of the universes. He has no partners, no other gods beside Him.) or Satan’s point of view (God alone is not enough. There can/must be other gods beside Him.).
29:50 – Satan is being tested as a god. The results are all around us: famine, starvation, misery, accidents, cancer. Satan’s kingdom is plagued with these problems. These problems don’t exist in God’s kingdom.
30:45 – God’s kingdom has no cancer, accidents, headaches, or problems. God’s kingdom is characterized by perfect health, wealth, peace, and happiness.
31:20 – When you choose God’s point of view, you belong in God’s kingdom and you will have no headaches (you’ll forget what headaches are), problems, traffic tickets, financial or health problems, accidents, misery, marital problems, etc.
33:00 – Satan’s trying very hard to make his kingdom a perfect kingdom. He wants very badly his constituents to enjoy perfect health, wealth, peace, and happiness, but he just can’t.
38:10 – What you see around the world is the consequence of Satan’s incompetence as a god.
38:30 – If God wills, He can make all the people believers. Where would Satan get his constituents, otherwise? We’re here to provide Satan with constituents. We have freedom of choice.
39:40 – If you have any problems whatsoever (headaches, financial/health/marital problems, or any kind of problems), this will be your hint that you have made the choice to side with Satan’s kingdom, somehow. Examine your own life.
41:15 – To exit Satan’s kingdom, you have to come to a solid, unshakeable conclusion that God alone is Lord of the universe and no one besides God can help or harm you.
42:15 – When you make this claim, you have to be put to the test to show that it’s not just lip service.
43:00 – God does not inflict any harm on His creation.
43:30 – Discusses four kinds of disasters. Admission tests are designed to show that we uphold this conviction under all circumstances and are characterized by the fact that they don’t leave permanent damage; then, you’re admitted into God’s kingdom.
44:25 – Educational disasters are designed to bring us back into God’s kingdom if we sway out. If we make a mistake and step out, Satan captures you and gives you a problem. This will be your attention-getter for you to come back.
45:25 – Blessings in disguise appear to be disasters, but when they are passed, you look back on them and discover that they were actually good for you. If you flunk an interview and don’t get a job, you discover later that with time, you got a better job and that other job would’ve been bad for you.
46:10 – Retributive disasters happen when a society or individual reaches the point of corruption where there is no reform. Gives example of Sodom and Gomorrah. This is the only “disaster” you may attribute to God, but this ended their life, the final blow. Death is not a disaster.
48:45 – You cannot believe in God, just in case there is a God.
50:20 – Your decision to join God’s kingdom must be accompanied by repentance, remorse for wrong things you’ve done in the past.
52:20 – Why do children suffer? When we side with Satan’s point of view, we move ourselves and our families out of God’s kingdom into Satan’s kingdom. The suffering and death of those children is a blessing in disguise because they go straight to Heaven.
1:00:30 – If you believe that anyone other than the One who created you can benefit you, then you have fallen into idol worship.
Old Message, New Messenger
3:10 – Rashad announces that he has been commissioned a messenger of God. He has known since 1980. He calls himself a coward.
3:50 – Talks about general tendency to resent anybody saying that they’re better than you. Resentment in this case results from ignorance and idol worship because a messenger of God is not necessarily better than anyone else in the congregation (gives example of Moses and his teacher).
6:05 – Rashad used to go to saints to ask for help. He was an idol worshiper.
7:05 – If a person is commissioned as a messenger of God, they aren’t guaranteed Heaven. They’re worried about their own necks.
8:25 – He says he’s not a professional religionist and wouldn’t allow a penny to enter his pocket from religious activities.
9:00 – The best among you is the most righteous, not the messengers of God, richest, tallest, or most knowledgeable. God uses messengers to communicate with us as a center of information and they have a difficult job because they endure abuse, slander, and threats.
11:55 – A prophet delivers a scripture while a messenger confirms existing scripture.
14:10 – Answers question of why God sends messengers. It’s a test to see what you’re going to do, as well as a test of ego.
16:45 – God will actively send away the arrogant.
17:25 – God made it mandatory that a messenger comes with proof that he is authorized and sent by God.
20:00 – Talks about mathematical signs he was shown that he was a messenger of God.
28:25 – Talks about Zakat. We harvest paychecks. The day you receive your paycheck, you give away 2.5% from your net income to people who know who are in need.
29:40 – Talks about accumulating small amounts of Zakat until it’s a reasonable amount. Don’t go beyond a month.
30:10 – Chances are this 2.5% from your check are illegitimate or illicit. Talks about purifying your income.
36:10 – Talks about when he was fired as a messenger.
47:35 – Before the human race came here, there was no death. The road to God is full of traps for people to fall off, the drop-outs. Some people drop out when they hear that he’s a messenger of God and it’s part of the sifting process.
55:20 – God has forsaken the Arabs; Arabs meaning in the Arabian Peninsula. Not a single Arab has seen and appreciated the miracle of the Quran.
56:50 – Convinced seven pairs means seven pairs of centuries.
1:00:00 – Orphans are children who have lost one or both parents either through divorce, abandonment, or death. Traveling aliens may be people who sneak into this country from Mexico, have no jobs, are hungry, etc.
1:05:50 – Talks about Sura 7:35. For as long as there are children of Adam on Earth, this verse is valid about messengers coming to you from among you.
1:07:00 – Messengership seems to be a test of ego for the people.
1:11:50 – Every human is required to believe in the proven messengers to be saved.

4:15 – Conditions for the Friday prayer include that the people dress nicely and they go for the noon prayer on Friday to the mosque.
5:45 – During the sermon, any names are necessarily mentioned as lessons or examples. During the prayer itself, only the name of God is mentioned.
6:40 – The Friday Prayer consists of two sermons. The two sermons compensate for two rakats. They must begin by stating Alhamdulillah followed by the Shahada.
7:55 – The sermon should be in a language that the people understand. The sermon deals with the local conditions of the local community or a general lesson from the Quran or general religious lesson.
11:25 – You end the first sermon by asking the people to repent (Tooboo Ela Allah).
12:20 – To repent, you ask God to forgive you and say that you’ll never commit a sin after now and you mean it. Of course you fall in sin again, but God says He loves those who continuously repent.
13:35 – You can either continue the subject from the first sermon or talk about something new in the second sermon.
13:50 – End the second sermon by saying Aqem Al-Salat and someone from the congregation says the Azan.
16:25 – Everyone in the mosque stands up in straight lines behind the imam for the Friday prayer.
18:40 – Seeking God’s kingship over you means that you give priority to God’s commandments.
19:30 – You put Quran studies on the list of your priorities. You have to work your circumstances around them. You can’t be somewhere within fifty miles of the mosque while there is a Quran study going on or else, you don’t really care and you’re not seeking God’s kingship over you.
20:45 – Says to pay Zakat once a year (corrected himself in Audio #38 at 15:50) and talks about order of Zakat.
22:00 – Give priority to Hajj eventually, not now. He does not advise you to do it now. The Quran makes it conditional. Talks about all of them going one day and chartering a plane. It will be a great victory because the land over there will be worshiping God alone. This is God’s promise to us.
23:05 – You give priorities to God’s commandments, seeking God’s kingship over you, and this way you attain all other goals.
23:55 – The secret of happiness is a developed soul. Gives example of Eddie Murphy.
25:15 – God is the exclusive Provider. He’s the One who decides how much money you make from birth to death. He provides for the body and the soul.
26:30 – God guides people by virtue of their belief. You cannot do the Contact Prayers without God’s guidance.
28:15 – Observing the Contact Prayers is a privilege, gift, blessing, etc. It’s not a hardship or work.
29:00 – People in Satan’s kingdom are provided with sins. When Satan collects people into his kingdom, he pushes them to not feed their soul.
30:30 – People in Satan’s kingdom may observe the Contact Prayers, but they don’t make contact with God because they dial the wrong number, Satan’s number, by mentioning other names beside God. Their efforts are in vain.
33:40 – It’s appropriate to say congratulations at the end of the prayer because you just received a gift from God, equivalent to a hundred million dollars in your account.
34:40 – God’s laws are commandments because we should do them and recommendations because we are free not to do them as long as we are ready to pay the price.
35:40 – There are two requirements that must be fulfilled for two people to get married, one of which is love.
36:05 – Love cannot happen without good acquaintance with the person. You must know the person, their habits, their temper, and their principles. This calls for a period of acquaintance, getting to know each other, and based off of that knowledge, you either love them or not. If you love the person, then you get married.
36:55 – God says that if this is the person intended for you, God will put love in your hearts.
37:30 – The second requirement for marriage is dowry for the wife. The purpose of the dowry is security for the woman. In many cases, you take the girl from her parents’ house and she becomes dependent on the husband and you can’t just throw her out after a year or two because she’s not the same person; marriage is a formidable oath.
38:20 – A dowry can be paid in advance by writing a contract or say if a divorce takes place, the wife must be given a certain amount of money to provide her with security. Divorcees must be given alimony. You must guarantee her housing and you can’t kick her out of the house or make conditions so bad that she leaves on her own.
40:00 – What happens in most Muslim countries is that they do the official marriage, but then the husband and wife don’t touch each other or become intimate. This official marriage gives them the chance to be together alone, hold hands, go places, know each other, then after a while, the marriage is consummated. During this period, if it doesn’t work out, they break up.
41:35-41:45 – Talks about having a chaperone.
42:00 – All the commandments are based on self-discipline and self-control. The humans become worse than animals when self-control is lost.
44:10 – The Quran leaves room for forfeiting the dowry if the wife is independently wealthy and being married, unmarried, divorced, or widowed won’t affect her security, then she can forfeit the dowry.
46:00 – It’s best for a couple to follow these prescriptions even if it may look difficult in the beginning. Some people may think if I don’t acquiesce to him, then he’s going to leave me and find somebody else; let him because that love is not there anymore. If you follow these steps, you’ll be guaranteed happiness.
48:15 – Discusses what the Quran and Islam does to us, like about alcohol and drugs not even being on his mind at all. They’re out of the question. No way he’ll even think about trying or being tempted by them. The mechanism is that the soul is stronger than the body.
50:35 – Gives same example with prostitutes not even being on his mind.
53:35 – Talks about polygamy and example of Muhammad. Muhammad was married to one wife for 25 years and after she died, he married women with children and no support. He had political marriages, too, as tribal traditions.
55:10 – God hates divorce. Almost invariably, children are victimized, same with the husband and wife themselves. Avoid divorce at any cost.
56:25 – Marriage is a tremendous and formidable contract.
God is Doing Everything – Part 1
4:05 – You do not believe in God unless you know God as He really is with all His qualities, especially that God runs everything and is doing everything. Accept whatever is happening to you personally or in the world to anybody.
5:00 – “God is running everything” should dominate your life even mentally. The world will look different to you. You’ll get reminded not to object this way.
5:30 – You’re not a believer if you lose your temper.
6:05 – Even the things that Satan is doing, they’re following God’s law. Everything is going in accordance with God’s will.
9:50 – When you lose your temper, tell yourself you’re not a Muslim. You’re objecting because God is running everything. When someone does something that gets on your nerves, God is doing it because you deserve it.
11:35 – Even though we are given the freedom of choice, God knows exactly what you will do.
12:00 – When Satan inflicts disasters, diseases, or cancer on people, Satan is doing this in accordance with God’s law.
12:40 – The punisher is really Satan, but God is doing everything. Even Satan’s actions are under God’s control. God wouldn’t be a god if He wasn’t running everything.
13:35 – Gives example of either putting your finger in the fire or using it in your service.
14:10 – Punishment of disobeying God’s law isn’t as visible, but you will pay for it.
15:05 – We have the free decision to be with God or not and after that, God takes over. We either willingly submit or unwillingly submit.
16:00 – Angels have freedom of choice. All creatures have freedom of choice until the Day of Judgment. Dwellers of Hell submit on the Day of Judgment, too.
16:55 – If we believe anybody is doing anything, this is idol worship because you’re putting somebody who’s doing something next to God. It negates the idea that God runs everything.
18:35 – Complaining is objecting.
21:30 – For your own good, you shouldn’t be upset, complain, or fight. It backfires manifold, like when you say a hurting word or give a hurting look.
21:50 – Talks about suspicion. Seek excuses for the people, even if your suspicion is true.
23:15 – If someone is acting in a certain way against you, it’s because of something you’ve done. Join them against yourself because of something you’ve done.
24:30 – Let other people be upset, complain, and call you names. You take the defeated side for your own good. There’s nothing in this world that is worth being upset about. Believing that God runs everything is better than owning everything in this world and twice as much.
25:50 – Gives example of being invited to have lunch with the president at the White House. Five times a day, you have an appointment with the King of kings. Talks about seeking excuses for not praying versus going to the White House.
28:25-30:40 – Talks about how long it would take you to count the number of stars (uses quintillion stars as an example). It would take you 32 billion years to just count them and God created them, so you can appreciate the greatness of God.
33:25 – Gives invocation before pledge of allegiance to the American flag. Recites Al-Fatehah (old translation), then concludes by saying amen.
35:30 – You are either with God or Satan; there’s no other choice. After that, you are either guided by God or messed up by Satan.
36:45 – The human is made up of two entities: body and soul.
41:10 – Says Rock Hudson broke God’s law and died in humiliation (he was a homosexual and died from AIDS).
42:30 – The soul is part of God because God says He blew into Adam from My spirit.
43:50 – Anything that we do that is not developing our soul is a waste of time. Anything you do that has nothing to do with God is a waste of time. Anything you do for God causes your soul to grow and develop.
47:10 – The first thing a Muslim says in the morning is Bismillahe Rahmaneh Rahim, La Elaha ella Allah, Wahdahulla Shareekala (In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, there is no other god besides God and He has no partners). This is what you would say when you get up on the Day of Resurrection, whatever you say every morning.
48:20 – If saying that is a habit here, it’ll also be a habit on the Day of Judgment. God will see to it; He will help you.
49:25 – A Muslim commemorates God every chance they get and is always conscious of God.
52:35 – Anytime you don’t go to the Friday Prayer, you’re out of God’s grace. It’s a commandment for every Friday to drop all business and go. God will see to it that you make more money and more profit.
58:15 – When you miss a Friday Prayer for any reason, it’s a terrible loss. It’s a commandment to go to the congregational prayer once a week where you meet your brothers and sisters and you miss a lot when you do this.
1:01:15 – Talks about not saying Ameen. It’s not in the Quran and has nothing to do with Arabic. Adding or removing anything from the prayer destroys the religious meaning of the prayer as a whole and is a grave sin.
1:05:45 – Talks about being accused of being harsh with people who make changes in the prayer, Quran, or practices of religion.
God is Doing Everything – Part 2
00:55 – Says we continue to record these sermons because they’re very important.
13:20 – Talks about receiving death threats from Saudis.
15:45 – The belief that God is doing everything explains why the majority of believers are going to Hell because there are lots of people who believe in God, but don’t believe that He is doing everything. People going to Heaven are rare. The road to Heaven is narrow and the road to Hell is wide.
17:35 – If you’re unhappy with anything, you’re an objector. If there’s anything causing you unhappiness, you have to find out what it is and eliminate it. Look for the non-Quranic situations in your life and eliminate them.
19:20 – The minimum requirements to make it to Heaven are to believe in God, believe in the Hereafter, and lead a righteous life. You don’t have to believe in Moses, Jesus, or Muhammad, or the Quran and Bible, or angels. Of course, we believe in the angels, but it’s not a requirement; it’s a piece of information. There’s a difference between the knowledgeable person and the ignorant person.
21:15 – Talks about the seven pairs.
25:40 – Under any name, whether Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or Hindu, if you worship God alone, believe in the Hereafter, and lead a righteous life, this will lead you to Heaven. You can’t just believe in God and the Hereafter and be a nasty, bad person, liar, or cheater.
28:30 – Talks about universal unity through devotion to God alone. If people of different religions rise above the human factors, they would be united through belief of God.
32:45 – Talks about polygamy. Perfect example of polygamy is Muhammad. Political marriages were forced on him; people insisted for him to marry their daughters. Talks about lie that Muhammad married Aysha when she was nine.
34:10 – Important criterion for polygamy is that you alleviate sorrow, not create sorrow. You have to be careful not to abuse this law.
40:30 – Seven universes are like balls within each other.
42:15 – “The universes are folded within His right hand” is an allegorical description to show us how big and great God is.
44:30 – Misery comes from Satan in accordance with God’s will. The ultimate doer is God, but we bring the misery on ourselves because of our decisions.
Friday Sermons, 1989 – #1
8:10 – If God was your god, policemen will be blind and not see you cross on red; you become invisible to the police.
9:10 – We are now in an era of distinction between Satan’s kingdom and God’s kingdom.
10:00 – First, you believe, then God will show you that He is running everything.
10:35 – Are you afraid that the people may laugh at you for saying God willing?
12:40 – Don’t feel bad that God was not your god last week. Keep working on it.
14:20 – Two kinds of people: submitter who is always happy and objector who is always miserable. A submitter understands that there is a good reason for everything and accepts whatever God is doing. An objector doesn’t like what God is doing.
16:30 – Talks about the story of the heifer. Uses comparison of Arabs arguing about ablution and making distinctions among God’s messengers. This story is an example of God teaching us to hear and obey.
21:00 – The Quran was placed into Muhammad’s soul, not his body, which requires a process of release from the person to the body. You may have information with you that is not in your body that has to be released from your soul to your body and comes in your physical brain then you’d be able to express it in words or writing. Gabriel mediated this release for Muhammad.
23:50 – The number of believers always increases. If you move to another town and start a Quran study all by yourself, you’re guaranteed to grow and someone will come out of nowhere and join you. If one person leaves, two people will come.
30:20 – You have no idea how important the dawn prayer is.
31:40 – God tells us to do the dawn prayer for our benefit.
32:10 – Get the biggest, most obnoxious alarm and put it far away from you at the other end of the room. This is what you need to do in the beginning since it’s difficult; this is an indication that your soul is too weak and cannot control your body. As you do the dawn prayer, your soul will grow and your body becomes obedient to you, then you’ll enjoy getting up.
35:40 – It does not reflect disbelief or lack of faith to want assurances.
37:00 – Announcement of messengership helps sift away the drop-outs.
37:40 – Talks about drop-outs for people who do dawn prayer. Same sifting process for those fasting during Ramadan.
39:05 – In His kingdom, God wants the real believers who will carry out God’s commandments no matter what.
40:40 – Says he still has hope for someone who he thinks has “temporarily” dropped out because of Rashad’s announcement as a messenger.
43:20 – The messengers were just human beings who aren’t better than anybody around them. Gives example of Moses and the teacher.
49:30 – Precious minority of a minority will be redeemed and this is why this whole universe was created, just for these precious few to be redeemed.
50:00 – People are bad. Only a few human beings are appreciative.
52:30 – When you decide to worship God alone, you’ve won a lottery with a million matching numbers. This gives you an idea since the word “fortunate” will not describe how fortunate we are.
54:50 – Talks about invisible stamp on each one of us that says High Heaven, Lower Heaven, or Hell. Talks about how Abraham was given intelligence because “we were fully aware of him”. God gave him the guidance because He knew he deserved that.
57:10 – Gives example of Joseph resisting temptation from the governor’s wife. God diverted him from sin because Joseph had a stamp saying High Heaven and God knows that he deserved it.
1:05:20 – Talks about people who blame God for not following His commandments and abuse “God is running everything”.
Friday Sermons, 1989 – #2
2:15 – Ramadan is a big feast for the soul. Fasting the whole day means you’ll be remembering God.
3:05 – Why did God send a messenger now? Among the ways God perfects His favor on us is to send a messenger to recite God’s revelations and new information and wisdom to us.
5:05 – God sent His messenger now because He loves you and wants to save you (Sura 2:151). The vast majority of human beings are yet to come into this world.
10:20 – Islam has been distorted by the Muslims into a Satanic cult. Talks about terrorist who was a self-proclaimed Muslim, giving Islam a bad name and Khomeini speaking in the name of an Islamic Republic as a self-proclaimed Muslim leader and what he did to freedom of expression. They find any reason to kill people. Continues for few minutes discussing things traditional Muslims do wrong.
14:50 – If you want to build a school, mosque, or hospital, that’s general charity, not the same as Zakat.
15:30 – If you don’t give Zakat, you’re out of God’s mercy.
16:00 – You’re supposed to be the nicest person during Ramadan because you don’t want to nullify your efforts.
20:35 – Not a single Muslim scholar could come up with a single reason why Rashad Khalifa is not a messenger.
22:30 – Gives example of warnings when someone is about to fall into a ditch. You shout louder and louder as they get closer to falling into the ditch; you’re trying to save them.
27:30 – Talks about people embracing Submission in throngs (Sura 110). He’s surprised how many people are receptive to the message of worshiping God alone and their sincerity. It has never happened in history before where the message has been delivered to this many people in the lifetime of the messenger. This message has been delivered to more people than the people that all the other messengers delivered in their lifetime combined, multiplied many times over.
28:55 – Says he screened the people at the conference.
29:55 – Says he believes that every messenger is really for the future generations, not for his generation.
35:25 – You’re applying for the best position for eternity, therefore, the test is not easy to accomplish.
36:30 – Belief in God implies believing God and what God says. If you believe in God and worship God alone, this means you believe everything that God says. If God says there are angels and we believe in God, then we must believe that there are angels. Same with how God said He sent down scriptures: if we believe in God, then we believe that God sent scriptures. Same with how God said He is sending messengers: then we must believe what God says in that He sends messengers. Quotes Sura 2:285.
37:50 – You cannot say you worship God alone, but don’t believe anything He says. You have to believe what God says.
38:25 – In Sura 3:81, God says after all the prophets, He will send a messenger. We have to believe that. We can’t say we worship God alone and forget about any messenger that He sends. Anyone who doesn’t accept this is out of the religion.
39:35 – We cannot fool God. If there is anything in our hearts, if we’re not real believers, we cannot just say we are with our mouth. God will have to bring this out.
40:10 – It is perfectly alright to have doubts, but we must conquer those doubts. Don’t let the doubts conquer you.
41:40 – If we come this close and drop out, we’ll be in the most pain and worst hell in the Hereafter.
49:00 – Talks about story of when he prayed for nobody to ask him if he was a messenger of God.
50:05 – Answers why people drop out if they don’t believe Rashad Khalifa is a messenger of God and they’re annoyed by the repetition of that. If God is saying there’s a messenger after Muhammad, why should you not believe God? God’s evidence is so powerful. The ego will be the only thing standing in the way.
52:05 – Talks about how to get rid of doubt. The source of doubt is your jinn companion. The way to counter doubts is to counter with questions and debate with your companion in your head. Ask things like, “What is Rashad advocating?”
54:05 – Ask your jinn companion, “Is what we’re doing wrong to worship God alone, uphold the word of God alone? Should we go to the words of men?”
55:45 – Ask your jinn companion, “Does Rashad have any proof?”
56:30: Ask your jinn companion, “Is Rashad making any money from this?”
57:10 – He says he sees to it that what comes out of his pocket is more than what comes in his pocket.
Friday Sermons, 1989 – #3
5:40 – Most important expression in Sura 1 is “You alone we worship. You alone we ask for help.”
8:15 – It was Satan’s ego that made him think that he can be a god besides God. Vast majority disagreed with Satan, i.e. angels.
9:50 – When given the opportunity to renounce their crime and submit to God, the vast majority of creatures took advantage of that, i.e. animals, mountains, stars, trees, etc. Explains Sura 55:6 (“the stars and the trees prostrate”).
10:45 – The horse is a perfect submitter. He comes to you on four, lets a poor or rich person ride him, lets a child lead him, etc. Animals come down with a subservient, obedient function and in return for their obedience, they’re redeemed. Gives same example with the dog.
12:10 – When God asked you and me if we want to participate in this plan and go down as a horse, for example, we said, “No way! Me? Go as a horse?” It is the ego that brought us here and stands as an obstacle between us and redemption. Too many creatures accepted that offer for them all to come down as animals, so there are stars, the sun, moon, etc.
16:05 – This rebellion proves that God’s creatures have freedom of choice. People ask why God created rebellious creatures. Millions are redeemed by dying before they turn forty; they participated in God’s plan.
19:05 – We were exiled because of our ego.
20:20 – Killing the ego is not that somebody comes and slaps you in the face and you turn the other cheek. Believers are not wimps; they stand up for their rights. The only reason people refuse to accept him as a messenger is the ego.
22:00 – Says he doesn’t want to give himself a test, but he wonders what he would’ve done if he was in their shoes.
28:15 – The two sermons of the Friday Prayer are part of the prayer. In addition to the two units, they complete the four units. Tells people to face the Qiblah while they’re sitting for the sermons as if they’re in the prayer. Tells someone that it’s okay to stay seated on their chair as long as they face the Qiblah.
34:10 – Every person on Earth is going to hear about the messenger of the covenant.
36:55 – Shows how his birthday, November 19, is the only day in the year whose number is a multiple of 19 as well. It’s the 323rd day of the year, 19*17.
42:00 – God designed the Arabic language and designed the Quran with the code nineteen in it before the Earth was created.
45:00 – The angels who are guarding us now and serving us are the ones who either snatch the souls of the disbelievers forcibly or gently take the souls of the believers joyfully.
46:55 – When you sleep, your soul voluntarily roams around.
49:50 – You don’t have to fight in the cause of God and get killed. When the righteous die, also, it’s the same (Sura 22:58).
53:30 – Recites Sura 36:20-27 about the man who told his people to worship God alone and when he was told to enter Paradise, he said, “Oh, I wish my people knew that my Lord has forgiven me and made me honorable”.
55:00 – It is God’s wisdom that Khomeini cannot come back and tell us where he is now. Once they cross that line, they cannot come back and tell us.
1:14:30 – The value of each of the prophets’ names who have a sura named after them equals the number of verses in those suras (system used was adding the number order of each of the letters in the alphabet for their names).
1:17:40 – Calculating Rashad Khalifa using this system gave 114, 19*6. There’s no sura that has 114 verses, but 114 is the whole Quran and his job was to confirm all 114 suras.
1:20:00 – “When a question is posed, God sends the revelation through Gabriel to tell us what the answer is or if we are speculating, then God will send Gabriel with assurance as to what is the correct answer to the question”.
1:21:20 – Talks about his mother passing away and he was assured with signs that she went to Heaven.
1:25:30 – Talks about his father dying as a disbeliever. Rashad was taken there just before he died to give him the last warning.
1:27:10 – When his father died, he was sad because he died as a disbeliever, but when his mother died, he was happy because the righteous go straight to Heaven. Says that after the Friday Prayer, they will pray the two rakats for the funeral prayer for his mother.
Friday Sermon – 1989 Conference
1:45 – God is the only priority in your life.
3:40 – God does not make us miserable. God’s law dictates that we can make ourselves miserable according to God’s law. Nobody can make you happy or miserable, only God.
5:20 – He is the only One who possesses all power, so what are we doing depending on anybody else?
6:05 – You are the number one target of Satan. Satan is not interested in idol worshipers or disbelievers.
9:25 – We do not follow Rashad Khalifa or Muhammad or Jesus. We do not follow any human being. We follow God. This is why we smile when they say that.
10:10 – He says if it is Rashad Khalifa’s opinion, don’t follow it. Be sure you’re following God.
15:20 – Any intelligent person, knowing that idol worship is the only unforgivable offense, will run away from any suspicion of idolatry. The fact that we uphold the Quran is the biggest proclamation that we know Muhammad was God’s messenger.
16:55 – Only the hypocrites say Muhammad Rasool Allah.
18:00 – If it is not in the Quran, we don’t have any consideration for it. In this conference, you’re going to hear lots of views, personal views, from many people. Anybody can say anything they want, but your criterion is the Quran. If it’s not in the Quran, don’t believe it, no matter who is talking to you. Especially in this conference, Satan has to be represented. If you believe the views contrary to the Quran, you deserve to believe them.
19:10 – As long as you have doubt in your heart, you’re in the lowest rank of Submission.
20:20 – It may or may not be correct, but if it’s not in the Quran, we do not follow it.
21:00 – The ink and paper, the physical Quran, is not the Quran. The Quran is in your heart.
1989 Conference – Final Speech
5:40 – Children don’t get the same credit as the parents who believed first.
8:30 – Gabriel is a messenger of God who carries revelations, the Honest Spirit. We may have human visions of Gabriel and convey on him human characteristics. We would think he would get mad when he says you are God’s messenger and you respond, “No, get away from me. You are Satan”. He is very mild, understanding, gentle, and respectful. He never ever utters the things that we would utter. The word angel as we understand it is very fitting.
10:10 – When revelations are being delivered, Gabriel takes over his brain and he can do nothing else. Gabriel told him that Sura 36:3 applies to him: “Surely, you are one of the messengers”.
11:05 – Gabriel would ask, “Why do you think I’m Satan? Didn’t you seek refuge in God from Satan? Don’t you believe God that He will protect you?”
12:45 – He was never asked to make the announcement initially. It was implied.
15:30 – He prayed to not have anybody ask him if he was a messenger. Tells story of how Ismail couldn’t open his mouth to ask him that question even though he was determined to.
21:20 – Some people will come to the masjid, say they believe in everything, then somebody tells them Rashad Khalifa picks his nose and they flunk their test for flimsy reasons and reflects their disbelief.
24:00 – Believers are rare. Hypocrites are sifted away.
26:40 – Whoever obeys the messenger is obeying God. This doesn’t mean idol worship. They tell you you’re idolizing Rashad. We know better than that.
28:00 – Says a lady from Vancouver told him that she doesn’t believe that he is a messenger of God. Argument starts.
30:40 – He recites Sura 58:22, verse under subtitle, Run For Your Life.
31:05 – Asks her if she believes he is God’s messenger and does the Contact Prayer the way he does.
31:40 – “Do not judge” is a Satanic principle. We are to judge with the Quran. We can judge because we have the law. When God says the disbeliever will go to Hell, we can say the disbeliever will go to Hell.
32:20 – You do not find people who believe in God and the Hereafter befriending those who oppose God and His messenger so if you see some of your friends breaking this criterion and constantly associating with enemies of God and His messenger, you have to worry about them.
32:55 – Says she told him that she doesn’t believe he is God’s messenger so she is blaspheming against God. In other words, she is calling him a liar.
33:40 – Starts calling out Soussan Rey for her saying that she knows better Arabic than him and that his translation is wrong.
35:40 – Says a certain woman named Sophie is going to treat the enemies of God in Vancouver very nicely and invite them to her house. Someone who was blaspheming and lying about him was invited to her house.
38:00 – You treat them as God wants you to treat them.
38:30 – Says the first translation of the Quran is an authorized translation. Every word here is the word of God, not his translation, God’s translation. It is already obsolete (holds up the blue hardcover Quran).
39:45 – If you see him as a bad person, that’s your tough luck. If you see him as a perfect person, it’s because God wants to guide you, but the truth is he’s not a perfect person. Gives examples of times you forget all the verses when passing the message to people versus when you’re eloquent because God wants to guide that person.
51:15 – There are only two extremes in this room: the extremely fortunate and the worst disbelievers (no in-between in this room, either going to the top or the bottom). Truth and falsehood are evident. Recites Sura 57:13-14.
53:35 – Just by being here doesn’t mean you’re going to make it to the elite of the elite. God does not want wishy-washy or doubtful people. God wants solid believers.
1988 Conference Speech
Start – Talks about fulfilling the covenant when he was at Mecca for pilgrimage on a Tuesday when he was listening to his favorite reciter on Cairo Radio, reciting Sura 55.
2:40 – He was told that these are all the prophets; they were shown to him the way they looked in this world. They had different turbans and robes. They came in one by one, looked him straight in the face, and shook their heads approvingly.
8:15 – There are many kinds of messengers. We are messengers. We deliver the message of La Elaha Ella Allah. When we meet someone and tell them to worship God alone, we are messengers. Rashad has a specific mission as a messenger.
10:00 – There is so much information in the Quran that information will keep coming until the end of the world, things we don’t know, but that is not new since it’s all in the Quran.
14:20 – Sending messengers is a continuous process until the end of the world. Every community is going to have messengers. Anybody spreading the message is technically a messenger of God.
Friday Sermons – Nov. 1987, 12/4/1987
8:15 – Evidence keeps increasing until they’re confirmed as hardcore disbelievers.
9:00 – Explains miracle associated with Sura 55’s repeated statements, “Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny?”
14:40 – The great event is a universal conference – the Day of Resurrection. People of the past, present, and future will be resurrected and assigned a job or position for eternity. They’re totally disregarding it, unaware, and unprepared.
18:00 – Talks about happiness. Happiness is an internal feeling that only God controls, nobody else. There’s false happiness that does not last and there’s real happiness that lasts.
24:10 – Salat is the most important thing for every human being. Jews and Christians lost the combination to the safe so they lost the contact. If you don’t make this contact, you’re suffering, in pain and problems.
31:30 – The people who believe in God know that God is with them, closer to them than their jugular vein, and therefore, they know that every time they make a mistake, there’s an “electronic machine that will give them a ticket” (analogy with driving and police).
32:40 – On the Day of Judgment, every human being will be invited (because it’s a privilege) to fall prostrate before God, but people who didn’t prostrate here in this world will not be able to prostrate there. Demonstrates importance of Salat.
50:00 – Saying Sura 23:97-98 (“My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the whispers of the devils. And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they come near me.”) chases Satan away. It’d be wonderful if you could say it in Arabic since it’s a numerical combination. Saying it one thousand times a day isn’t enough.
53:20 – The vice president of the biggest Islamic university in Saudi Arabia along with three other people came to Masjid Tucson to discuss worshiping God alone. Rashad said he doesn’t think Satan himself would dare do what he did. He objected to having the name of God on the wall by itself; he wanted Muhammad’s name next to it. Instead of being pleased with seeing the name of God on the wall, he criticized it.
55:00-1:01:00 – Reads Hadith that show how traditional Muslims worship Muhammad.
1:13:00 – Talks about how he sent letters to every leader of the Arab/Muslim countries to form a United Islamic Nation. Said there will be changes of government until a government comes with the objective to join UIN (exacting trials every year once or twice). Explains how this came true.
Friday Sermons – End of the World, 10/16/1987, 7/15/1988
25:15 – The number of the verse is dictated by God. Yusuf Ali changed the numbering of the verses in some places.
29:50 – When God says He put guards on you, you know that there are guards on you, so you will not receive a scratch without God’s control, without deserving it, or without a good reason for it. Sometimes, God will mess up your life in order to have something good happen to you. Gives example of Joseph in prison, then ruling Egypt.
30:55 – Everything is already recorded: what you’re going to do next year, how many kids you’re going to have, who they’re going to marry, what day or time or place you’re going to die, etc. God tells you this so you don’t feel sorry for the things you miss and you don’t get excited over the things you attain. The believer has an even keel; he/she doesn’t get excited or depressed. There’s nothing anybody can do.
31:50 – The Psalms were mathematically authenticated, too. Psalm 91 is confirmed in the Quran.
32:25 – When you pass the initial tests, worship God regularly, and you do the five prayers, certainty will come to you.
33:35 – Explains how God is faithful to you.
35:00 – As a person of God, you will see that the people who are unjust to you are going to get it sooner or later. Even if you don’t see it, they will get it. God will let you know. If you’re alive, you will see it.
36:40 – God has commanded angels to guard you in all your ways, lest you dash your foot against a stone. Everything in this world is run by God through angels.
40:25 – Had God punished Satan for his supercilious thoughts without exposing them, the angels would’ve been really perplexed. The angels aren’t aware of Satan’s innermost thoughts like God is.
41:55 – Satan’s constituents were not assigned to him involuntarily. God consulted each one of us, asking us if we want to take a test to choose between God’s point of view and another point of view. The human being said yes and other creatures said no because they were afraid. Incentives included the awesome reward for those who pass and we overestimated our intelligence.
46:20 – Says his understanding was that we were all in Adam and we all broke God’s law.
47:30 – This universe is Satan’s prison cell.
50:45 – Instead of Satan wasting his time with the followers, he will capture the leaders, like the Pope, for example. 900 million Catholics listen to the Pope, so why should he waste his time on 900 million people when he can just capture one?
56:30-1:00:40 – Tells story of how he discovered the mathematical code in the Quran. Started with curiosity for what A.L.M. means.
1:01:10 – Inside the biggest brewery, the miracle of the Quran came out. Satan doesn’t know everything. The mathematical miracle was hidden from him so he couldn’t put up any obstacles.
Friday Sermons – 1/1/1988, 1/22/1988, 3/4/1988
1:05 – When you repent, you can start all over again anytime you want, forget completely about the past, and return to God.
2:05 – Happiness is a quality of the soul, not the body. Therefore, a body that achieves all the material successes it longs for often belongs to an unhappy person. The real person’s happiness depends totally on the development of the soul.
3:00 – Gives example of Eddie Murphy.
4:15 – If the soul is not nourished, in our dimension, we don’t feel the pain. It is reflected through unhappiness.
5:35 – When you wake up in the morning, the first you say is “In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. There is no other god besides God” (Bismillahe Rahmaneh Rahim. La Elaha ella Allah).
6:00 – When you admire anything that belongs to you, you must say MashaAllah.
6:35 – You say Alhamdulillah when something good happens, when you finish eating. When you see something wonderful, you say SubhanAllah.
7:20 – Anytime you think of God, because your soul is a piece of God, your soul will be nourished.
9:05 – Never say you’re going to do something in the future without saying InshaAllah. You’re going to shock your American friends at first, but then, they’ll get used to it and respect you. You will nourish your soul as you remind them and remind yourself.
10:45 – The soul has a weight in the other dimension, not in this dimension.
13:15 – You can’t just keep waiting then try to feed a shrunken soul. There’s such a time when it’s impossible. You have to do it every day as much as you can. This is what we’re really here for.
13:35 – Life goes fast. For the young people, it seems so far away. Recites Sura 21:1.
15:40 – Satan succeeded in distracting many people. They will not take any advice from you. They hate advice and hate the truth.
17:05 – Lower Heaven will be relatively crowded, full of all the children who died, people who died before the age of forty, and adults who did not nourish their souls enough. High Heaven will not be crowded.
20:15-22:25 – God knows your secrets. God is here now in this room and sees you and hears you. New Zikr.
28:00 – God is doing everything: conclusion you must reach to be saved. It’s a quality of God. If you don’t know this quality, you don’t know God.
29:15 – This life is a test, nothing else. Anything else is just the means for provisions, like jobs.
33:20 – Gives example of how God nullifies people’s excuses. People said Rashad isn’t an Azhar scholar (science man, not religious man), so God also gave them an Azhar man with the highest honors who would teach the same message at the university.
35:25 – Says their powerful Al-Fatehah got a submitter out of prison.
42:40 – We are proud of our title, rejectors of Sunna. Those other people are rejectors of Quran.
52:00 – God’s kingdom has no problems once you pass all the required tests and once you come to this point of perfection. Satan’s kingdom is plagued with problems.
52:50 – The people who did not feed their soul have a starving soul without feeling the pain. The pain will show up all at once when the separation happens between the body and soul. Right now, the soul is obscured by the body and the pangs of starvation and hunger are not felt. It’s felt later on when it’s too late and eternal.
55:00 – We can join God’s kingdom anytime we want to; it’s wide open. For a while, there’s a period when you step out and you get pinches.
56:30 – If you’re perfectly in God’s kingdom, you know that whatever is happening is for your own good and you understand it and you’ll be perfectly happy.
57:45 – We cannot cheat ourselves by showing off or not praying because of peer pressure due to embarrassment in front of friends.
1:01:10 – God’s mercy is beyond our imagination. Gives example of people who die before the age of forty going to Heaven. Someone who never prayed or fasted and dies at 35 still goes to Heaven.
1:02:35 – Talks about the law of equivalence. This restricts capital punishment. The verse leans favorably toward compensation, instead.
1:06:30 – You must stand up for God.
1:08:05 – God wouldn’t command Abraham to kill his son because He does not command vice.
1:10:05 – Not only did God not order Abraham to kill his son, but He intervened to save his son because he was a sincere believer in God’s kingdom. God did not let him. God will not let you fall in sin and allow you to do something wrong if you’re in His kingdom.
Friday Sermons – 5/27/1988, 10/28/1988, 12/30/1988
10:25 – God’s kingdom has no problems, whatsoever. When we step out of God’s kingdom, then problems begin. Satan’s kingdom is full of problems: diseases, AIDS, cancer, accidents, personal problems.
12:05 – Your body loves money so charity is designed to give money away from this body to the poor. Same with fasting.
17:10 – Whatever is preoccupying your mind the majority of the day, that is your god.
17:30 – If you are preoccupied with yourself, what you look like, what the people think of you, if this is your concern the majority of the day, then you are your god; you’re worshiping your ego.
18:25 – If you are preoccupied with your job most of the day, that is your god.
18:40 – If your spouse is preoccupying you more than God, then that is your god. If your property or the dollar is preoccupying you, that is your god.
19:30 – When it comes to commemorating, mentioning, or thinking of God, there’s no limit.
20:40 – Believers love God the most. You can love your spouse, children, job, etc. as long as God is on your mind the majority of the time. Whoever you’re thinking of the majority of the time is your god.
21:05 – Explains Sura 64:14. Your spouses and your children can be your enemies by becoming preoccupied with them. If you want a good spouse and good children, you should give your attention to God, not to them because God is with your kids as they ride their bike in the street, not you. If you’re with God, God will be with your kids and spouse.
21:40 – God controls your spouse’s mind and heart. You can guarantee a good spouse if you’re good with God.
22:20 – Your spouse and children are a test because you become attached to them.
23:20 – Read Sura 18:28. Do not obey, follow, go with, or mix with those whose hearts are diverted from commemorating or mentioning God because they will drag you with them into thinking about something else.
24:35 – This may answer the common question, “Why am I having problems?” You didn’t think of God the majority of the day.
26:35 – Unless you have unusual circumstances, if you don’t pray the dawn prayer, God is not your god. You have some other god.
27:25 – Whatever your god is other than God, you’re going to lose it, guaranteed. If you worship your job or your spouse, you’re going to lose it, guaranteed. You learn that from Sura 18:42. If you give your job more attention than God, you’re guaranteed to lose it.
29:05 – Recites the Gospel of Luke 12:29-31. Seek God’s kingship over you and everything else follows. If God is your god, you’re guaranteed all of these things.
30:15 – When you see your car running nicely and you see your children, you say MashaAllah. When you see a beautiful flower or sunset or your own fingers, you say SubhanAllah. When you get up in the morning, you get up in the name of God; say it in any language you want.
33:05 – Every time you eat anything or drink anything, you say Bismillah.
33:15 – You’re feeling good and healthy, you say Alhamdulillah. Even if you don’t feel good or healthy, say Alhamdulillah. Find any excuse to mention or think of God. You see your spouse and children, say MashaAllah, Alhamdulillah, etc.
34:15 – A submitter asked why she doesn’t get straight As and he says that where it counts, God will give you the straight As.
46:00 – Billions of years ago, there were billions of creatures that were not classified as angels, humans, or jinns yet. There was God and His kingdom.
46:50 – Jinns were almost equal to Satan. They were also egotistic and thought they could also be gods, maybe.
48:00 – God’s absolute authority is not an egotistic practice on the part of God. It is the truth that only God can run a kingdom.
51:30 – We should love God because God, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful, gave us a chance to redeem ourselves. We would all be in Hell right now, otherwise.
54:00 – The wages of sin is death. God created death as a consequence of that blasphemy.
58:00 – Answers why God allowed two false verses to be injected in the Quran for 1400 years. The people at Muhammad’s time reverted to idolatry after he died. They did not deserve the Quran.
1:03:45 – Tells story of conference he went to where a man presented that the Quran is a fallible, internal hallucination of Muhammad while he presented evidence that the Quran is divine from God. The Arabs there attacked him, not the other man.
1:08:00 – Answers question of, “What about all the people from the past generations?”, who had wrong information.
1:27:00 – Most Christians believe John the Baptist is the messenger of the covenant since he came right after Jesus.
In Defense of the Bible
1:25 – The Bible contains too many unacceptable contradictions and nonsense. Gives example from Gospel of Matthew, saying there are 28 generations between David and Jesus, but in the Gospel of Luke, it says there are 43 generations between them. How can this be the word of God? Names used in both gospels aren’t even similar.
2:45 – The Bible is the word of God, but these indefensible contradictions are there because they were injected by humans. The vast majority of the Bible is divine truth.
3:50 – Biggest contradiction of all is the deification of Jesus Christ, making him a god against his will and against the teachings of the Bible.
10:20 – 90% of the Bible today is divine truth. The human race has been duped into following the 10% of contradictions and false doctrines injected by humans into the Bible.
10:45 – The Bible must be corrected and God sees to it that all these contradictions and nonsense are exposed.
11:15 – Millions of people throw the baby with the bath water (baptism) because of these contradictions and nonsense. They drive people away from the word of God.
13:35 – God sent a final edition of the scripture that is mathematically composed beyond human ability. You will see which truth in the Bible is confirmed; contradictions and false doctrines are exposed. This is what God did about the humans’ interference in His Bible. He sent down to us a final message to serve as a standard reference.
15:50 – Jesus was raised to God before his body was put on the cross. His heart was beating and his lungs were breathing, but the soul wasn’t there.
16:45 – Gives comparison example of Bill Schroeder.
20:35 – Lists the four functions of God’s final scripture to the world: expose contradictions and nonsense and remove it from the Bible, confirm the divine truths in the Bible, settle the controversies, and to confirm all previous miracles.
Principles of Contact Prayers
3:00 – The word Salat is derived from the Arabic root word for “contact” or “connection”. It is wrong to translate it as “pray”. The correct expression is to say you make contact with your Creator five times a day.
6:40 – Lists where all five Contact Prayers are mentioned in the Quran: morning (dawn) (24:58), noon (17:78), afternoon (2:238), sunset (11:114), and night (24:58).
7:10-10:10 – Explains where all five Contact Prayers are mentioned in the Quran. “Both ends of the day” in Sura 11:114 covers morning (dawn), sunset, and night prayers. “Highest point at noon” in Sura 17:78 refers to the noon prayer. “Middle prayer” in Sura 2:238 refers to the afternoon prayer.
12:20 – Before Abraham, there was no mention of the Contact Prayers (Salat). Noah just told his people to believe in God and ask for His forgiveness.
13:40 – Muhammad didn’t bring these practices because they came through Abraham, which is why we don’t see the details of how many units (rakats) for each prayer in the Quran. Uses Crest toothpaste example (If I tell you to buy Crest toothpaste, I don’t need to explain to you what that is because it’s already in existence).
15:20 – Abraham contributed all practices of Islam.
16:00 – Answers the question of why we should make contact with our Creator five times a day. We do it because our Creator commanded us to do so. We need the Contact Prayers; God doesn’t.
17:15 – The Contact Prayers are the meals for the soul (most important nutrition for the soul).
20:20 – All practices of worship in Islam are designed to cause the soul to grow and develop and make you the boss over your body. Majority of people are enslaved to their body.
21:10 – Before sunrise, your body wants to sleep, but your soul needs to get up and observe the morning (dawn) contact prayer. If your body wins, you continue to sleep and if your soul wins, your body will obey you and observe the contact prayer. The struggle becomes less and less as your body becomes more obedient to you. Eventually, you’ll enjoy getting up to observe the contact prayer.
23:10 – During Ramadan, your body wants to eat and drink, but you tell your body to fast, so you’re exercising your soul and causing it to grow and develop.
24:10 – God wants you to develop yourself and be strong enough to hold a responsible position and high rank in the Hereafter.
24:25 – For Zakat, you take money from your body and give it to the poor, so you are being the boss over your body since your body loves money.
27:20 – Explains the Azan.
30:25 – Explains ablution.
31:25 – It’s a gross transgression to add or reduce anything for the four steps of ablution. There’s nothing wrong with extra cleanliness, but when it comes to religious practices, we must adhere to what our Creator dictated exactly.
34:35 – If you are taking a shower, you can do ablution in the shower, but go through the motions of ablution.
35:00 – Starts demonstrating ablution.
35:25 – You should make an intention to observe ablution.
39:50 – Mentioning other people’s names in the Contact Prayers nullifies them, makes them useless, and even harmful.
42:50 – You must read the Quran every day.
45:40 – Pray in a clean place. You don’t need a prayer rug (that’s an innovation), just somewhere dry and clean even if it’s bare ground.
46:00 – The Qiblah is an organizational point; there’s no other significance to it.
46:30 – The direction for Qiblah is generally slightly south of east in the United States.
47:35 – Make the intention for Salat in any language, whether secretly or loudly.
47:45 – Open the Salat by raising your hands to the side of your face and saying Allahu Akbar. Hand position during prayer doesn’t matter.
50:00 – Allahu Akbar means God is the greatest.
51:55 – Allah is not the name of God. It’s just the Arabic word for God.
1:09:45 – Saying a woman can’t pray during menstruation is a Satanic innovation.
1:11:00 – If a person is very sick and can’t move, they can pray with their eyelids or mentally. If you’re in a crowded place and can’t find a place to pray, you can pray at your desk.
1:12:50 – Mentally follow the imam as he recites the Al-Fatehah.
1:13:15 – If someone comes late to a group prayer, you join the group in whatever position they’re in and you just continue after they’re done to complete however many rakats you missed.
1:14:35 – You can’t make up or combine prayers because that’s an innovation. Just ask God for forgiveness and repent if you miss a prayer.
1:16:25 – Demonstrates how to perform Salat.
Essentials of Submission (Islam) and The Computer Speaks
00:35 – Adam was the first messenger of God.
1:30 – The original prophet of Islam is Abraham.
3:00 – Muhammad was appointed as God’s final prophet at the age of forty. The Quran was given to him in one night, but was released from his soul to his mouth/hand gradually over a period of 23 years to help the prophet and other believers at the time memorize it.
6:00 – Don’t follow any other source besides Quran like Hadith or Sunna.
7:20 – The Shahada is found in Sura 3:18.
13:30 – The system for Ramadan is designed to show who will fast and obey God’s commandments no matter how long the day is (see who the dropouts are).
15:10 – God is teaching you to be a person of strong will and preparing you for the Hereafter because He wants the people who are strong and know how to control their bodies, which also causes your soul to grow and develop.
18:15 – Talks about general charities that are on the spot. Zakat is for people that you personally know are poor and in need. Taxes don’t count as Zakat.
21:55 – Talks about how to observe Hajj.
23:00 – Never go to Medina. People go to the Prophet’s tomb and idolize him. It ruins not just your Hajj, but the whole religion.
26:45 – Talks about prohibited meats. Prohibitions not specifically mentioned in the Quran belong to some other religion.
28:45 – All intoxicants are prohibited, like alcohol and marijuana (anything that affects your mind, capacity to think and have a healthy brain), as well as gambling. Even if you win the jackpot, you will end up the loser.
29:40 – Breaking a promise is prohibited. You must be a person of your word.
30:25 – Islam is proven to be the best way to fight drug and alcohol abuse.
30:40 – Perfect your religion first before making Hajj pilgrimage (about ten good years of preparation needed).
31:45 – Performing Hajj too early often leads to opposite results: arrogance and loss of faith. Performing Hajj should make us better and more humble.
34:00 – Talks about main statement you need to know throughout Hajj and its definition (Labbayka Allahumma Labbayk. Labbayka La Shareeka Laka Labbayk.)
37:40 – Explains Zakat.

40:20 – Corrects morning prayer to dawn prayer.
44:00 – The Computer Speaks video begins.
46:35 – People of all kinds of religions believe in God, but human factors cause divisions among these people. If you rise above these human factors and unite in belief in God, there will be no divisions.
49:40 – If we are all devoted totally to the One who created us, there will be universal unity.
Witness a Miracle and World News Bulletin
6:30 – The message came to this world in many parts and the first part came to us through the first man, Adam. Adam was created by God and he knew about God and when he came to this world, he transmitted the first portion of the message.
7:10 – Adam taught his children and grandchildren about God and everything he knew about the creation of Adam, the creation of the human being and his wife Eve, and how he came from up there to the planet Earth.
8:45 – God picked out from every generation a human being through whom God sent part of the message.
19:00 – Once you study this mathematical pattern in detail and understand it, you will know God exists and faith is no longer needed.
29:40 – Answers why the number nineteen is the common denominator.
37:20 – World News Bulletin video starts.
38:25 – Says this year, 1986, is the last year to experience the world as we know it today. A new worldwide era or worldwide system will begin sometime between September 6, 1986 and August 25, 1987. The new era will last 303 lunar years, 294 regular years, after which the world will come to an end in the year 2280.
40:15 – In the new era, Satan will throw up his arms and declare his failure.
42:05 – Leading a righteous life means you’re honest, truthful, nice, one who never hurts anyone.
48:20 – Says no one should ever think that he is judging anyone; only God is judge. What he uttered in this bulletin was God’s judgment, not his judgment.
Evolution or Creation: The Final Argument
4:10 – Gradual evolution proved to be wrong.
4:50 – Evolution happened in giant leaps, not gradually.
6:40 – Says Darwin was a genius when he suggested natural selection, survival of the fittest, and mutations. Gives example of navel oranges as evolution through mutation, but navel oranges evolved from oranges, not apples.
13:45 – Summarizes explanation of probability using examples of dice and lottery.
14:15 – Haphazard arrangement of thirty billion nucleotides into DNA is ruled out.
15:30 – Talks about similarities between apes and humans and the probability of monkeys evolving into humans.
18:35 – Talks about Darwin’s theory about the evolution of the eye. The eye cannot be haphazardly created.
20:10 – Most of Darwin’s theory is proven correct, except for the initial origin of life. Important evolution proves the existence of a super-intelligent Creator.
20:35 – Gives examples of a dragonfly and housefly as intelligent designs. Who told them to stop evolving the number of lenses in their eyes?
22:20 – Evolution is a process controlled by the Creator.
23:20 – Not a single scientist has succeeded in initiating life from inanimate, inorganic matter.
24:50 – Building blocks don’t assemble themselves into a building. Scientists succeeded in creating the building blocks, but not the building itself.
32:35 – We received a mathematically coded message from the super-intelligent Creator telling us how the universe and all life was created, not evolved.
38:40 – Talks about the initials in the Quran.
43:00 – The number nineteen is the common denominator in the original, unaltered Bible and Quran.

49:30 – The Earth is billions of years old, not five or ten thousand years old. The Earth is egg-shaped, not flat. Discusses myths regarding Noah’s ark.
55:45 – Radio interview begins.
The Great Debate
5:10 – Answers the question of why the mathematical miracle is significant or beneficial for people to know. The mathematical miracle is indisputable unlike previous miracles.

8:15 – Explains the role of the mathematical code as it relates to Muslims and non-Muslims.
11:15 – Talks about not believing in Hadith or Sunna and not mentioning Muhammad in the Shahada.
12:30 – Talks about the correct Shahada and not making distinctions among messengers.

Mathematical Miracle of the Quran
1:05 – Explains how the mathematical miracle was discovered. Rashad said he didn’t like any of the English translations of the Quran and some of them distorted basic doctrines of the Quran, which encouraged him to do his own translation, also for his children. He pledged not to move on from each verse until he understood what it meant and he got stuck on A.L.M. in Sura 2:1.
3:05 – He put the whole Quran in the computer. He looked for mathematical patterns involving the initials and after four years, he found a common denominator of nineteen.
16:15 – Explains significance of why missing Basmalah is mentioned in Sura 27. When you count from Sura 9, which has no Basmalah, to Sura 27, which has two Basmalahs, there are nineteen suras (including Sura 9 and Sura 27 themselves in the count, too). Also, adding the numbers of the suras (9+10+11…+27 = 342) gives you a multiple of nineteen. The number 342 is the exact number of words between the two Basmalahs of Sura 27.
54:55 – Explains why the number nineteen is the common denominator in the Quran. Nineteen is the numerical value of the Arabic word for “one” (wahed).
