Audio #1

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. They can be redeemed only if they 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 about meditating during the night. 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 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.

Audio #2

0:00 – 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.

Audio #3

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; 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 Rashad is sure that Pharaoh in the Cairo Museum is the one from Moses’ time and he says yes because it had salt in the body. He says it wasn’t Ramses. It was Merneptah.

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.

Audio #4

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. The Washington Post says when the 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 since 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 and guide them. Once you’ve delivered the message and 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.

Audio #5

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, like 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.

Audio #6

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.

Audio #7

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.

Audio #8

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 by 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.

Audio #9

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.

39:20 – If you don’t maintain your chastity, you pay from your happiness. You won’t have a happy marriage or life.

44:40 – It takes maybe ten years after the voice of the boy changes and the menstruation of the girl to really be ready 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).

53:05 – Talks about arranged marriages.

54:40 – Answers question about people who don’t want to get legally married. It’s 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 minute 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.

1:10:20 – Talks about authorized Farsi translation.

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. The words/verses came to his memory.

Audio #10

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.

55:50 – Says you’ll be “proud” of yourself for maintaining your chastity and have a happy life. If you fall for the temptation, you’ll be ashamed of yourself for the rest of your life.

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.

1:10:05 – When it’s time for the Noon Prayer and you’re watching TV, your jinn is the one telling you to wait till after the news is over, so you’ll miss your prayer.

1:10:55 – Your jinn is Satan’s representative in your body, continuously telling you not to worship God alone, stop you from doing the five prayers, discourage you from fasting during Ramadan, telling you to follow the social system to have a boyfriend or girlfriend, etc.

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 is talking about jinns going back and warning other jinns.

1:08:55 – After you die, jinns stay around for about 600-700 more years (less now that the world is ending soon).

1:13:40 – We can exceed the rank we were during the Great Feud depending on 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.

1:26:25 – Talks about being forced by circumstances to use the same area for prayers, Quran studies, and potlucks. When they’re rich enough, they’ll have a prayer hall just for prayers.

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.

Audio #11

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.

Audio #12

26:40 – Says, “If you have an ego, don’t come in here”, while talking to Edip.

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.

32:40 – Dress up every time you go to the mosque. Example of Rashad saying “astaghfurillah” after rhetorically asking, “Is God finicky or what?” How would you like to go to the mosque and everyone looks terrible and stinks?

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.

50:50 – Answers why God has angels participate in carrying out commands when He can do anything. God is teaching us through various verses that there’s a concept of “be” and it is. There is a system, a mechanism.

53:00 – When Satan fails to stop you from worshiping God, he will push you to the other extreme. He will make you demand of God more than what God Himself said.

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.

1:05:50-1:07:25 – Recites Sura 17:53 about God’s servants treating each other in the best possible manner. Calling a fellow servant of God a liar is not treating each other in the best possible manner, whether done justly or unjustly (Edip had said someone was lying at 1:00:20). Talks about advocating righteousness and forbidding evil; don’t sit indifferently when someone is blaspheming and hurting another believer.

1:11:35 – Rashad says Edip idolizes his opinion and unless he changes, he’s going to go to Hell.

Audio #13

0:00 – 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 meaning of “what prevented you from prostrating” 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.

37:55 – He said he would leave the understanding of the location of the bodies hanging until maybe God lets them know.

47:00 – Humans were already all put to death for the first time before Adam’s clay body was created.

51:30 – The location of the bodies is obviously not relevant.

59:35 – God only had humans bear witness that He is the Lord and Master, not jinns.

1:11:20 – Explains Sura 31:28. Adam is the master plate and copies were made from him.

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. The spirit is part of the physical being.

1:19:35 – Rashad says he wants his body cremated and flushed down the toilet.

Audio #14

00:15 – Zikr (Dhikr) 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 (dhikr) 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.

Audio #15

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.

16:10 – It saves us a lot of trouble if we obey the messenger. Gives example of situation where he mentioned the issue of age of forty and he wasted so much time discussing it because people didn’t have the conviction and understanding.

17:50 – Obeying the messenger has to do with matters related to God and information that comes from God (they’re not personal opinions).

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).

45:20 – Gives example of being born deformed in the Hereafter as without arms and legs.

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.

Audio #16

0:00 – 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.

Audio #17

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.

1:08:45 – Says he is for using the same terms in the Bible to try to harmonize the Bible and Quran (discussion surrounding translation of Yawmid Deen as “Day of Judgment” instead of “Day of Religion”).

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.

Audio #18

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.

59:45 – Believers shouldn’t have a preference for having a son over a daughter or vice versa.

1:01:20 – Forced dress code on women is similar to burying an infant alive (oppression).

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. According to Hadith and Sunna, the majority of the inhabitants of Hell are women, but Rashad said he’s convinced that the opposite is true because of the oppression women undergo.

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. They will see that there is nothing wrong with it, it’s in accordance with the Quran, and there is sufficient proof. They may hold their judgment for a while until they examine the evidence.

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.

Audio #19

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 (pussycat with believers, lion with 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.

40:25 – Continues explaining Sura 2:102. God sent the knowledge of witchcraft to Earth through Haroot and Maroot as part of a test to see who’s going to use it and who’s going to abuse it. (Continues discussing this at 45:50).

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. This doesn’t apply to people who don’t speak Arabic; it applies as a general rule.

47:15 – Continues discussing Raa’ena and Unzurna. Edip asks about saying “be my shepherd” and Rashad says the Arabic word sounded dirty in Hebrew just like how an Arabic word may sound dirty in English, for example.

49:00 – Rashad explains an incident where someone tried to use witchcraft against him and it backfired on her.

50:35 – Discusses voodoo.

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 blue hardcover Quran is divisible by nineteen.

Audio #20

34:00 – It’s important to have no grief or fear and to have full confidence in God; it’s difficult talking people out of 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).

Audio #21

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. Your cousin who isn’t fighting you may read the Quran and become a better believer than you or me and when you help them, it may cause them to believe. Consider them potential believers.

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).

45:00 – Explains how he knew the two verses in Sura 9 were the ones that violated the mathematical code.

Audio #22

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.

4:10 – You are supposed to figure out what you have done wrong, but if you are too egotistic to pinpoint what you did wrong, then the punishment will continue until you know what you did wrong. When you know what you did wrong and you repent, it never happens again. The problem is solved.

4:35 – An utmost submitter has no problems of any kind. It’s almost unbelievable.

5:00 – Says he has put himself in situations where a problem should have happened, but it was in the cause of God, so a problem didn’t happen. Gives an example of a story with his wife.

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. Talks about not having back problems while sitting at the computer. God will heal you, despite body limitations.

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’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.

Audio #23

52:05 – People bring destruction on themselves, i.e. Sodom and Gomorrah. Nowadays, where homosexuals are spread in the society, you couldn’t just destroy the city of Tucson because there are 1,000 homosexuals in it, but you can send a virus to pick them out. That’s what’s happening now.

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 that 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.

58:35 – If you’re a believer, you will not catch AIDS, not need transfusions, not have an accident, not get traffic tickets, depending on how good you are. You will get these as pinches whenever you do something wrong, but for as long as you’re sincerely searching for God, God will give you time and protect you until you make a decision. Your decision will be to either remain in God’s protection or step out of God’s protection.

59:10 – Talks about death and how someone dies.

Audio #24

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.

1:06:05 – A hypocrite gave Rashad a death threat, so he called the police on him.

Audio #25

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 three people can conspire secretly without Him being their fourth…”).

22:00 – Talks about being united. Satan only attacks the straying sheep.

26:15 – Explains Sura 58:9 (conferring secretly).

30:25 – Talks about discussing circumcision.

Audio #26

17:55 – Fasting is a private form of worship.

18:50 – Talks about anonymous charity being better.

Audio #27

3:20 – Explains examples in Sura 14:24 and 14:26. A good word (truth) and it lasts because it has basis (roots). A bad word (falsehood) does not stand; you blow it and it falls down.

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. It’s the 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. Satan failed to stop you from believing in God, reading the Quran, and from being saved, so his last thing to do is to drive a wedge between the believers. The devil driving a wedge between believers would be violating the rule about believers being members of one family. Satan wants you to contradict this commandment by being averse to another believer.

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.

1:22:25 – Sura 41:11 was referenced in a question regarding time sequence of the creation of the heavens and the earth. Rashad said we shouldn’t pick on these little things. Someone said, “When people ask us, we should have an answer for them”. Rashad said you should ask them, “Why is it relevant to you whether the Earth came first, or Jupiter came first?” The people who have doubts in their hearts will ask you these questions.

Audio #28

3:10 – Discusses Sura 46:8. 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 – 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 were all in God’s kingdom. You could think of us as angels. We used to be angels in God’s kingdom.

26:25 – God’s creatures had different responsibilities and assignments of work, so depending on their duties, they had different powers.

Audio #29

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 – Explains the story of Rabbi Kushner; he had a child with progeria that died at 14 years old.

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.

52:40 – Don’t ever ask for a test. You’re being tested thoroughly enough.

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.

Audio #30

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 who 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 and about the experience.

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, twice as much.

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.

Audio #31

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.

Audio #33

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 regard to suspicion, you have to give people the benefit of the doubt. You shouldn’t draw conclusions with no proof.

Audio #34

0:00 – 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. The last god is the ego.

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.

13:30 – Talks about the use of the word “Father” being mistranslated in the Bible instead of “God” or “Lord”.

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.

18:30 – If the child’s father is known, you give the child the name of the real father.

21:40 – Tells example of how he would insist on calling someone by their birth name after they changed it and would talk them into changing their name back.

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.

52:40 – It’s a favor to the prophets for them to be aware of what’s happening with the message on Earth, but they don’t know any news about worldly things.

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.

Audio #35

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).

Audio #36

4:20 – God accepts the flimsiest excuses to redeem us. Gives example of all the people who die under forty going to Heaven instead of Hell.

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. Bahai Faith.

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.

Audio #37

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.

35:00 – Someone asked why Sura 4:159 says that everyone was required to believe in specifically Jesus before his death. Rashad says that when something specific is said in the Quran, it doesn’t exclude anything else. Gives example of not praying while drunk (doesn’t mean you can drink any other time).

37:10 – Eating meat that was dedicated to other than God is different from eating meat that wasn’t killed in the name of God.

38:10 – Talks about the four prohibited meats.

40:40 – Alcohol and gambling are 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.

Audio #38

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. “If you want to do something else, I don’t want to be blamed for it.” He would pay in advance if it’s too small (clarifies prior statement from Principles of Friday Prayer video at 20:45).

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.

Audio #39

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. You can be their friend and love them and woo them into worshiping God alone.

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.

1:06:25 – 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 – Someone asks if when you attain certainty, tests will be finished and then everything will be smooth and good, and Rashad responds, “Yes, everything will be alright. Even if you go apply for a job and don’t get it, you’d understand.” Quotes Sura 24:55 (“substitute peace and security for them in place of fear”).

Audio #40

19:40 – How do we know we aren’t way off and God is adorning our way in our eyes? You have to examine the logic of your belief critically. You have to be critical of yourself until you prove that you’re not an idol worshiper. You have to start with the assumption that you are an idol worshiper and that you are not on the right path and try very hard to prove this. If you fail, then you are okay.

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).

Audio #41

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.

Audio #42

10:50 – “If I am intelligent, I will put myself on trial. I will say, “Rashad Khalifa, you are an idol worshiper, but you don’t know”, and I want to prove very hard that I am not an idol worshiper. I must accuse myself of being an idol worshiper. You come to me and say, “Rashad Khalifa, you are an idol worshiper”. If I am smart, I will say, “Wait a minute, maybe I am”.” Talks about not being convinced until you prove you’re not an idol worshiper. Continues by explaining a few criteria through which you can judge yourself by.

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.

47:30 – Talks about women praying during menstruation and women attending Friday Prayers.

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.

Audio #43

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). Losing the soul is literal; when we don’t pray and worship God alone, the soul shrinks, not only to zero, but negative. 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).

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.

1:08:25 – Starts talking about deja-vu experiences. Sometimes, we are given glimpses of our video tape. When we see it and our soul is out there free, one of the qualities of the soul is to travel in time, so you can travel in time to the future and see something from your video tape and it feels like a dream when you wake up in the morning. Time goes by and you remember that you had seen this before.

1:13:50 – Some dreams have significance, many of them are nonsense–don’t worry about them. If God wants you to know something, He will let you know. Don’t try to interpret them.

10:25 – We are not following Muhammad, Rashad Khalifa, or any human being. Don’t let anybody tell you that. We don’t follow Rashad Khalifa; we follow God. When people make those statements, they’re making them out of their idolatry because they idolize human beings.

10:55 – If Rashad Khalifa says anything on his own, we don’t listen to him. We can listen but use our own discretion.

40:05 – When God says the children of the disbelievers will be cursed up to four generations (in the Bible), this means that whatever babies are born in their homes for four generations, God will assign evil souls.
