QUESTIONS are asked by Dr. O’Connor from BESS FM Radio, Kingston, JA
ANSWERS were given via audio by Shaikh Abdullah Faisal, Kingston, JA

NATURAL INSTINCTS - ISLAMIC PSYCHOLOGY

Q and A based on Shaikh Faisal's book, "Natural Instincts"

AL-FITRAH: our natural instincts / feelings
- Fitrah is an Arabic word meaning natural instincts & feelings
- It is given to us by Allah to enable us to carry His word
- and His order on this Dunya

QUESTION: IS IT A NATURAL INSTINCT OF MANKIND TO WORSHIP 'SOMETHING?'

- We were created by Allah to acknowledge one God & obey one God
- Our Instincts tell us to obey only One Supreme Being
- Shaikh likes to debate with Atheist because they don’t believe in God
- They believe in big bang Theory!
- Whereas there are 6 billion people in the world
- and everyone has different finger prints & DNA

How do they get to explain this even the different iris!
- This is clear evidence that we were created by the Supreme Being
- And they believe we come from Monkey
- And yet we cannot take blood from them?
- How is it possible that we can’t take blood from our own father
- if they say monkeys are our fathers!

But the monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allâh therewith, but they did not observe it with the right observance So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fâsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allâh) (Al Hadid 57:27)

- They say in Genesis 2:2 that god rested on the 7th day
- How can He rest when He is the Supreme Being!

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made Genesis 2:2 (KJV)

- Those who do not worship the One & Only God
- the Supreme Being you are not on the straight path
- For you start following your desires

PAGANISM - WORSHIPPING THE CREATION
MONOTHEISM - WORSHIPPING ONE GOD

**we must learn to bridle our natural instincts

THE 3 CATEGORIES OF AL-FITRAH

- 2 Extremes & the middle path

1 PRIESTS, NUNS, MONKS - NEVER GETTING MARRIED
-but marriage is a Sunnah
- Because Allah created Male & Female to enjoy each other
- Ibrahim had 2 wives, Jacob had 2 Wives & Prophet (pbuh) had wives

Anas reported that some of the companions of Allah’s Messenger (saw) asked his wives about what he performed in private Someone among them said, “I will not marry women, someone else said, “I will not eat meat” another one said, “I will not lie down in bed” He, the prophet (saw) Praised Allah and Glorified Him and said: “What has happened to these people that they say so and so, whereas I observe prayer and I sleep too, I observe fast and I suspend observing them, I marry women also, and he who turns away from my Sunnah, he has no relation with me” (Sahih al Bukhari (Arabic/English) Vol7 pg No1 Sahih-Muslim, English translation Vol 2 pg 703 N03236)

But the monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allâh therewith, but they did not observe it with the right observance So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fâsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allâh) (Al Hadid 57:27)

2 PROMISCUITY (lose s-x)

-also called "gigolo"

SHAIKH IN SOUTH AFRICA
-was told 1000 people die from AIDS there per day
-same w/ Hepatitis B (so many die)
-there's no outcry for these diseases
-AIDS is a silent killer
-these people who die are doing s-x

3 THOSE THAT PRACTICE MARRIAGE
-not celibacy or promiscuity
- They are not of the above 2 extremes
-they follow the Rasool (saws)
-they are in middle of 2 extremes
-you're not denying yourself in the pleasures of women
-only marriage can monitor this

QUESTION: DO MARRIED COUPLES GET BLESSINGS FROM S-X [JIMAA] IN THEIR MARRIAGE?

YES

QUESTION: WHAT IF WIFE SAYS NO TO S-X WITHOUT ANY REASON?

-she cannot say NO unless she has a valid reason,
-sickness is valid reason
-if she was abused is also valid
-menses is valid
-after childbirth within 40 days is also valid
-if you're not maintaining her financially, she can refuse

Then Salman said: ‘It is true that you owe your duty to your Lord, but you also owe a duty to yourself and to your wife So you should carry out your duty to everyone’ Then they went to the Prophet (saws) and related all that transpired to him He said: ‘Salman was right’” - Bukhari

to enjoin a good action is a charity, to forbid an evil action is a charity, and in the sexual act of each of you there is a charity" They said: "O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfils his sexual desire will he have some reward for that?" "Do you not think that were he to act upon it unlawfully he would be sinning ? Likewise, if he has acted upon it lawfully he will have a reward" MUSLIM


-if he becomes apostate, she can AND SHOULD refuse him because he is a kaafir
-or when she fasts in Ramadan
- the above reasons of Wife refusing S-x is the only one she can refuse upon

QUESTION: CAN YOU HAVE JIMAA (S-X) IN RAMADAN ? OR EAT?
-Anything besides that, she will be sinned
-Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) via Angel Gabriel
-on the Month of RAMADAN
-we fast for 29-30 days
-from Fajr till Maghrib
-purpose is to shrink stomach so we can not suffer obesity
-obesity causes stress on our organs, as does anorexia

A believer eats in one intestine (is satisfied with little food) and a kaafir (unbeliever) or a hypocrite eats with seven intestines" (Bukhari)

-we abstain from food, drink, jimaa during daylight hours
-even our eyes and tongue fast
-we're not to backbite and our hands must fast
-as do our feet (so we don't go to unholy places)
-our private parts fast, also
-we train to become righteous

FASTING IS COMPULSORY FOR US TO BECOME RIGHTEOUS
-we service our cars when it needs oil same thing we do for our bodies

O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqun (the pious - see V 2:2) (Al-Baqara 2:183)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said, “The son of Adam does not fill any vessel worse than his stomach It is sufficient for the son of Adam to eat a few mouthfuls, to keep him going If he must do that (fill his stomach), then let him fill one third with food, one third with drink and one third with air” [Tirmidhi 1381 Ibn Maajah 3349 classed as Sahih]


- Muslims Fast in Ramadan every year - because this Month is a guest
- Its teaches us TAQWA
- To be righteous & God fearing
- We the Muslims look forward to Ramadan with Zeal

CHAPTER 2: MAN'S LOVE FOR LIFE (SURVIVAL INSTINCT)

-this instinct is so we do not commit suicide
-it's natural to love life and fear death
-however many are still committing suicide!
-people commit suicide when they kill their wives
-or love rivals or their kids: "fatal attraction"
-this is when someone kills for "s-x" (jimaa)
-they have memories and their good times
-he doesn't want anyone else to enjoy his wife
-he'd rather kill her than allow her to be w/ another man
-some commit suicide because they can't cope w/ hardships of life
-after hardship comes ease

SHAIKH IN TRINIDAD IN 1980
- Many Women drank poison & committed suicide
-we're not permitted to suicide for any reason
- Because of love, their parents rejected those they wished to marry
-however we commit suicide, we will do that in the Hellfire continuously

So verily, with the hardship, there is relief, (Ash-Sharh 94:5)

QUESTION: ARE YOU CALLING JAPANESE ABNORMAL?


- Its the Rich countries that commit suicide the most
- Japan & Europe!
- Japanese believe in Buddha which is man or are Atheist
- Unlike Saudi & other Muslim countries, they don’t commit suicide; it’s very rare

So verily, with the hardship, there is relief, (Ash-Sharh 94:5)

- Because they believe in Allah & Allah promises relief after every hardship
- we need to accept rejection gracefully and move on
- atheism is rife in Europe

CHAPTER 4: INSTINCT TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL:

- Whether a Muslim, Christian, Jew, etc -
- they all know that to Kill innocent people is WRONG
- every constitution in the world, they said: do not kill or steal
- because its our natural instinct to know good from bad!
- You don’t have to be a Jew or some other religion to know what’s wrong
- Because God gave us that natural instinct to differentiate between good & bad
- In every society, no one likes a Thief or a criminal

Verily! The worst of (moving) living creatures with Allah are the deaf and the dumb, those who understand not (ie the disbelievers) (Al-Anfal 9:22)

- God gave us a brain to use it; if you don’t, then you are not of the Human being
- You will be considered as a creature if you don’t use your brains
- and think for yourself
- Every woman desires someone with brain, someone educated,
- and someone who can think for himself

QUESTION: ARE WE THE ONLY INTELLIGENT LIFE ON THIS EARTH
(BRAINS TO THINK AND PLOT OR OTHERS)?

- genies are created from fire
- animals can think
- We have Human, Jinns, Plants, and Animals
- when Prophet Suleiman and Bilqis (he saw the hudood bird
- say the devil led the people astray)
- In the time of Prophet Sulaiman, the bird (hudhud)
- gave info to Prophet Sulaiman about the Queen of Sheba
- That they are worshipping Sun instead of God
- Even the ants cried out when Prophet Sulaiman was marching with his army
- This is proof that even animals recognize people
- Because they, too, have a brain just like the bird
- and also ants (in the time of Prophet Sulaiman)
- Don’t kill insects unless they become a pest in your home
- Animals do not worship anything or anyone besides God the Almighty
- Angels too have brains - They do exactly what Allah commands them to do

QUESTION: WHAT WAS CREATED FIRST: MAN OR DEMONS?

Angels, the genie (demons) then man

O you who believe! Ward off from yourselves and your families a Fire (Hell) whose fuel is men and stones, over which are (appointed) angels stern (and) severe, who disobey not, (from executing) the Commands they receive from Allah, but do that which they are commanded (At-Tahrim 66:6)


- The Jinns were on Earth before us, as Allah has stated in Qur’an
- Muhammad, Ibrahim, Musa, Isa, Nuh - He sent to us

QUESTION: HOW DID SATAN TRICK OUR FATHER, ADAM?

- Unfortunate that our Father Adam was tricked by shaytaan
- Adam was thrown down from Heaven NOT from Paradise
- Heaven & Paradise are different
- You cannot be thrown out from Paradise
- but you can be thrown from Heaven if you misbehave
- The devil gave Adam an offer, he could not refuse
- The devil studies our natural instincts & he knows that we fear death
- The devil studied Adam's mentality & tricked him
- He knew Adam was afraid of Death & so he tricked Adam to eat from a tree
- that he said would give Adam ever lasting life

THE DEVIL GIVES SIN A BEAUTIFUL NAME: such as homos-xuals called "gay"

- Shaytaan makes Adultery became love affair & a Bastard child
- is called love child!
- "love" child is really a "lust" child
- "wise"guys" are Mafia
- Shaytan paints the evil name to a beautiful name
- So shaitan’s offer of the tree was too beautiful to turn down
- And so he ate from that tree & was thrown down from Heaven
- When our father Adam was in heaven, he was provided everything,
- including food-cloth & shelter
- But when he was thrown down to Earth, he had to earn his way to live

QUESTION: DID ADAM REMEMBER THAT GOD TOLD HIM N-O-T- TO EAT FROM THAT TREE?

- 40 years went by
- Scholars of Islam say, the shaytaan waited to trick Adam to eat from tree
- the devil waits for us to forget our instruction to tempt us
- The reason why Adam was tricked by Shaytaan because
- he said I SWEAR by GOD I am telling the truth
- the devil said WALLAHI [I swear by God] I am telling the truth
- Adam was hesitant to eat from the tree & hence the reason shaytan swore
- Whenever someone wants you to believe, they swear

THE DEVIL BELIEVES IN GOD:

- But no one is allowed to swear on anyone or anything except on ALLAH

And Shaitan (Satan) will say when the matter has been decided: "Verily, Allah promised you a promise of truth And I too promised you, but I betrayed you I had no authority over you except that I called you, so you responded to me So blame me not, but blame yourselves I cannot help you, nor can you help me I deny your former act in associating me (Satan) as a partner with Allah (by obeying me in the life of the world) Verily, there is a painful torment for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers, etc)" (Ibrahim 14:22)

QUESTION: WE CAN'T SEE THE DEVIL SO HOW CAN HE TEMPT MANKIND?


- whispers
- thoughts
- He uses the above 2 to do something haraam & sinful
- This is his way to tempt people!
- whispers are 'waswaasas'
- but he can come in human form and that of animals
- The Devil can come in a form of Animal, to further tempt us

THE BATTLE OF BADR
-the devil came in human form and told Quraysh to fight Muhammad (saws)

And (remember) when Shaitan (Satan) made their (evil) deeds seem fair to them and said, "No one of mankind can overcome you this Day (of the battle of Badr) and verily, I am your neighbour (for each and every help)" But when the two forces came in sight of each other, he ran away and said "Verily, I have nothing to do with you Verily! I see what you see not Verily! I fear Allah for Allah is Severe in punishment" (Al-Anfal 8:48)

QUESTION: SO ARE THE ANGELS MORE POWERFUL THAN THE DEVIL ?


- Yes, Angels are more powerful then the Devils
- Because it was the Angel whom the Devil feared & left in the battle of Badr
- the devil has the ability to take on human countenance to scare people
- We do not believe in reincarnation
- But the non-believers do
- But it’s the devil who takes in human form to scare you

CHAPTER - THE INSTINCT TO LOVE ONES COUNTRY

QUESTION: THE INSTINCT TO LOVE ONES COUNTRY .. WHERE IT COMES FROM?


- People exaggerate ones love for its country
- You can love ones country but you cannot love it to the point
- that even if it’s evil you support it
- Countries behave like people just like how boys at school
- beat up other boys to show off to girls
- The same way countries are doing:
- they try to take over other countries because they think they are powerful
- Like the bullies!
- the NAZIS had the creed of nationalism (a lethal disease)

QUESTION: IN REGARDS TO LOVE, HONOR, POWER, PRESTIGE:
WHY DO WE LOVE NICE THINGS OR CARE WHEN PEOPLE DISRESPECT US


- it is natural instinct to love honor (izza)
- we like to be obeyed
- people like to be respected
- but respect can't be demanded but gained / unearned
- You cannot demand respect - even between wife & husband
- Even with kids - you have to gain their respect
- Whenever a country has no respect
- they start bullying other countries to get their respect
- Those respectful Countries, gain their respect only by bullying other countries
- usurp (take by force)
- Know that you cannot bully people to respect!
- in last days, evil leaders will be FEARED not respected

QUESTION: RUSSIAN AGENT, ALEXANDER LITVINENKO (please tell us about this):

- Shaikh prefers focusing on Russian instead of American
- in 2002-2003
- author of BLOWING UP RUSSIA

http://enwikipediaorg/wiki/Alexander_Litvinenko

-he wrote a book exposing the KGB in Russia and
-he was assassinated by poisoned by Plutonium 210
-he was a young man, reduced to a vegetable
-so we learn not to sit and eat w/ anyone :: we don't know what they will do
-eat w/ righteous people and only serve food to righteous people
-killing innocent people to hang on to power
-such as the Pharaoh of Egypt
-he went on a rampage and killed the Hebrew boys
-intoxicated w/ power? they will kill even their own mother
-women, wealth and power are INTOXICATING

GOD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS:
- Musa is in the basket in the rover flowing though the palace
- he grew up in the palace and became a prophet
- God said go back to Egypt to invite him to monotheism
- Pharaoh had the people worshipping him as god
- the Pharaoh had people worshipping him, not God
- And Moses killed & destroyed Pharaoh & his nation

QUESTION: YOUNG BOYS ARE ATTRACTED TO YOUNG GIRLS AND VICE-VERSA:
THEY ARE NOT ATTRACTED TO THE SAME GENDER (please explain):


- Its natural Instincts to be attracted to the opposite s-x
- Those who are homos-xual, Shaikh likes to debate them
- because if they are happy, why not live in a separate island
- They will only become old & unhappy
- Because eventually they will all die & not be able to reproduce
- Because God created Adam & Eve not Adam & Steve!

in the time of PROPHET LUT, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah
- They say, Some men were born to be attracted to women & some to men
- But to them we say, why would God make you born with such a thing
- whereas He Himself destroyed the city of Lut
- Its the behaviour that is learnt NOT something you were born with
- These are all lies of them being born with this

"It is sufficient falsehood for a person that he narrates everything that he hears" (Muslim)

"A person has done enough wrong in his life if he simply repeats everything he hears” [Muslim]


- We should not believe everything we hear!
- We must have an investigative mind
- If we don’t, we will always be deceived in life

INSTINCT OF JEALOUSY / GHAYRAH
- We were created with Natural Instinct to feel jealous over wife
- If we don’t have that jealousy, we will not be able to go to paradise

Abdullah ibn Umar reported that the Prophet said: "Three people will not enter paradise, and Allaah will not look to them on the Day of Judgment: the one who is disobedient to his parents, the woman who imitates men and the ad-Dayooth" (Ahmad)

WIFE-SWAPPING

- Its also called The Life Style!
- people put keys to their homes in a basket then pick out
- one that that is the person you sleep w/ that night
- sleep with is s-x
- be jealous over your wives AND daughters
- We are to be jealous over our Wives & daughters
- their honor (izza)
- If we turn a blind eye, we will not be able to go to Paradise,
- Any race where they are loose & they can sleep around, that is a weak race
- women are protected because they are the first madrassa for our children
- so marry women who are upright in character
- A Mother is someone who is a role model for her children
- A good race is a race where the women are protected & guarded

MUSLIM COUNTRIES HAVE INCREASE IN POPULATION BUT THE WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE DECLINING

Ibn Al-Qayyim, Rahimahullaah, said: "And the Dayyouth (the man with no jealousy over the women in his family) is the most vile of Allah's creation, and Jannah is forbidden for him, (because of his lack of Ghayrah - jealousy)

In the time of Prophet (pbuh)

-a man came & said there is a woman who is pretty
-but cannot give birth, can I marry her?

On the authority of Ma’qil ibn Yasar who said: “a man came to the Prophet(saw) and said, ‘I have found a women of noble rank and beauty, but she does not give birth to children Should I marry her? He(saw) said: ‘No’ He (the man) came to him again but the Prophet prohibited him He came to him the third time and the Prophet said: ‘Marry women who are loving and very fertile, for I shall out number the peoples by you’ (Ibid Vol2 pg545)

- Women have to give birth to continue the race of human
- People don’t see children as a blessing in Europe
- One of the signs of last day mentioned by Prophet (pbuh)
- is that Women will stop giving birth to children
- Just like how nowadays, they worry about their carrier, their figure
- How can we compete with other nations, when our women give up giving birth
- Women are given womb to give birth
- Also children will look after in their old age

QUESTION: IF YOU ATTACK A JAMAICAN, HE WOULD DEFEND HIMSELF: SHAIKH, WHY IS THAT?
- Its a natural instinct to defend ourselves
- We Resist to Exist!
- The moment we stop resisting, we will stop existing
- This instincts is given my God so we can defend ourselves
- People will always invade you, kill you to rape your woman
- This is something in human that will not change
- Hence the reason God gave us the natural instinct of Defending ourselves

INSTINCT OF LOVING WEALTH AND FEARING POVERTY:
- If we fear poverty, we should not feel guilty
- There is no good in poverty
- Prophet (pbuh) would seek refuge from poverty
- Umar Khattab said if poverty was a man I would kill it with my 2 hands
- Poverty turns people into disbelievers
- Poverty gives one a low self esteem
- When you are from a poor country, every other country will reject your visa

SHAIKH IN PRETORIA
- Whereas if you are from a rich country, all other countries will accept you
- They said you are the only one Shaikh we met, who don’t preach poverty
- whereas every other Shaikh preach poverty
- Will a daughter of a president sell herself for $5?
- Nope she won’t, because she is rich & has enough to support herself
- We should gravitate towards wealth & not poverty

QUESTION: THE DESCENDANTS OF ISHMAEL WE'RE TOLD THEY'RE CURSED: ARE THEY?

The Descendants of Ishmael were the master race
- Because they worshipped God
- Those who worship otherwise are the inferior race

"Our Lord! And make us submissive unto You and of our offspring a nation submissive unto You, and show us our Manasik (all the ceremonies of pilgrimage - Hajj and 'Umrah, etc), and accept our repentance Truly, You are the One Who accepts repentance, the Most Merciful (Al-Baqara 2:128)

- If you have piety in your heart, that will identify whether you are on a good race
- or that of a bad race
- Those who worship other than God are the inferior race
- It’s not the complexion that identifies your race, or whether inferior or superior
- but it’s whom you worship, ie GOD Almighty!

QUESTION: GOOD FOOD IS ENJOYABLE SO DO WE HAVE THOSE PLEASURES IN PARADISE?

-there is food, drink and s-xual intercourse in Paradise
- You are not allowed to be obese or anorexia!
- You are supposed to be in the middle

WE THANK DR O'CONNOR FOR THIS INTERVIEW
