Discussion at Breakfast with Shaykh Hisham
(Translated from Arabic)
Scholars used to have real knowledge. There are two types of knowledge: one of the tongue, the other from the heart. Real knowledge is transferred from heart to heart, but knowledge coming from the tongue is imitational and plastic. Now they are using plastic knowledge and not seeking the real source of the material. It is not understood. However, whether real or not, they don't even care to seek the real knowledge from the imitational one, which is cheap, as everything is cheap nowadays. Millions of factories today manufacture such imitational products such as synthetic diamonds. People also have also become fake, like plastic. There is a difference between real and unreal ones. Now the honor of human beings has come under the feet those who only appear good or respected (but whom are not); the others are rubbish.This is how they judge people. Humans beings have become like talking animals!
La ilaha illa-Llah Muhammadan Rasoolullah! Wa min Allahi 't-tawfeeq, bi hurmati 'l-habeeb, bi hurmati 'l-Fatihah.
(Translated from Turkish)
Nothing will go back to how it was before. Some say after this storm comes to an end, everything will go back to normal, as it was, but they are wrong. This will cover the whole world, not only the Arab lands. It is impossible otherwise. Prophet’s (s) ummah's punishment will take place in dunya; there won't be anything left (to judge them for) in Akhirah!
