Hamza Yusuf – Breaking the Spell: Revealing the Dark Influences on Popular “Occulture”

Anyone with even a modicum of exposure to popular culture can see a pervasive occult element in films, television, and music. Vampires, sorcerers, witches, secret society references, and satanic rituals have come out from the shadows and onto center stage in popular culture. Those of us of a certain age have witnessed the increasingly graphic depiction of violence that began with the game-changing 1967 film Bonnie and Clyde. This trend now includes a multi-billion dollar game industry with titles like “Grand Theft Auto” and “School Massacre.” Coupled with the violence is the disturbing “pornification” of culture that has resulted in another multi-billion dollar sex industry of exploitation and degradation. Lest we forget, a dark soundtrack to all of this blares out from car stereos and smartphones straight into the ears of our youth, lulling them into a stupor in which reflection and reality to them are as distant and faded as the once bright lights of the now lost night sky. This unsettling talk will take a serious look at the forces behind these trends, their agendas, and the damage they have already inflicted on young minds. It will also give practical means to mitigate the influence in our homes and communities, and provide strategies for combating it. Please note: Given the subject matter and the use of some graphic images, please consider this session rated PG 13.

Bilal Philips – Cultural Islam or Islamic Culture

Separating Islam from the cultures of the people is very important as many people have linked some of these barbaric Cultural practices to Islam such as Honour killings, acid attacks, forced marriages, abuse of basic human rights. As a result some have left Islam because of these Cultural practises not to mention the propaganda from the media.

Dr Bilal Philips talks about the impact of culture on our practice of Islam and the importance of putting Islamic values before cultural values.

“It is He (Allah) Who sent among the unlettered ones a Messenger (Muhammad peace be upon him) from among themselves, reciting to them His Verses, purifying them (from the filth of disbelief and polytheism) and teaching them the Book (this Quran, Islamic laws and Islamic jurisprudence) and Al-Hikmah (As-Sunnah: legal ways, orders, acts of worship or the Prophet). And verily, they had been before in manifest error” (Surah Al-Jumaah 62:2)
