It was a good omen
for the future because I had a part of me was telling saying that no one ever shows up before, before the sauna, whatever. So I my experience with with these timings that are outside of prayers, like having after a prayer is very poor, it never never never works. I tried it lmm tried it out Westmount I tried it in Syria before that it never worked. So if it works here, this will be amazing. It's actually nice because if you can finish before it finished at a time, that's a good time for people to go home and sleep at work in the morning works for me, it works for everyone here I think as well. So inshallah here,
it's good to see that people actually show up. So today in sha Allah to Allah, we get the opportunity in sha Allah to conclude the theater. So to hash out I, I left the last piece of the sutra for today, which is the last three verses they're very beautiful. And they are worthy, a little bit of contemplation just because of the of the number of names of Allah subhanaw taala, that you find within these three verses.
A lot of names, and this is probably the highest density of the names of Allah subhanaw taala being used in sequence in any part of the Quran. There's really no other place in the Quran that has this setup aside from the end of sorts of worship. So it's totally worth and shallow taking the time and going through the verses and the names one by one. And just contemplating what the names mean. And what we learned from them. I did, I think I did this over five years or so, where every Ramadan, after fajr, I would just take one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala and just explain it. And I did it so many years in a row that I got tired of it. So I know you'll get tired of it. But just I
thought, okay, maybe I do something different. And people kept on going, why did you go back and do this again. So I may end up going back and doing it again next year, just because we actually never got a full
they didn't get properly recorded or put together. And I think that's more like personnel are really beautiful.
Islamic topic to to learn, and I always start with wherever I go. It's something that's upfront, you want to make sure people understand and they take the time to contemplate and reflect upon. Because it's the only way you know Allah and through knowing Allah subhanaw taala you know, your deen and know yourself and, and they are these names actually allow us to understand almost everything there is for us to understand about our deen just by learning the names and it's a really beautiful way to do it. And I find it quite quite enjoyable.
So today, inshallah I want, you know, I can't take for each name 20 minutes, just these two verses will take the next three months. So we'll go through them quickly. And I'm just going to do some reflections on some of these names. Why are they here at the end of sorts of Hashem. As I explained last time, so the hash was an extremely technical surah. It's very technical, it just talks about relationships. This just from gyro data, Hareem. All of them are many sources. They're very technical. They're very fear driven, very ruling based meanings, all talking about what you could do what you can't do, what's Hello was held on talks about behaviors, it gives commands, it gives
warnings, you don't find it wasn't like that from cloth to Hadid. Again, you just have to kind of go back and listen to those verbs. Those sorrows and you'll see how it's a very different than when I talked with him, you're reading the AR 10 You're hearing them being explained, that wasn't the case, it was all value based. It was it was it was talking about our belief system, our principles, what here this is no it's all behaviors all what you can do what you cannot do.
So to measure organizes the relationships within the country, within the nation, amongst the people who are citizens within it. So the majority organize the relationship between Muslims, either individuals or groups talked about Muslims and how they they're supposed to kind of organize amongst themselves, how she talks about within the country. And then we'll talk a little bit different every single little bit different terms of what type of relationship is trying to organize. And this is very interesting, but because there's so technical, you will find every second sutra when there's verses that are extremely sentimental, very very new, the old mill piano driven very well they
remind you of something they try to move the heart white because in the midst of all this technique, all these technicalities all of these highlighted haram verses you can easily forget why you're doing them. This is a very common problem so it's not just it just it's I'm not saying that these are there just to spice things up No no, no. The problem with with learning fic without having the third piece of Islam which is the set so it's our deen is three things. This is Islam Eman and SN. Islam is the actual practices how to do things. Eman is the belief system. What is it that you believe in? What are your values, but the sun fees that everyone seems to enjoy ignoring? Is why
you're doing it and who is it you're doing it for? And what relationship do you have with that one that you're doing it for him? That that spiritual piece so if you get caught up in the Islam piece too much or the Eman piece too much and you don't have that axon piece then you will get lost. You will get lost you won't know why you're doing it anymore. You'll lose the affinity to the reason of why you're doing what you're doing. You're doing it because Allah subhanaw taala created you and loves you and commanded you and you want history.
Warden, you want to be close to Allah, that's why you're doing it. That's why you treat traders the way the student says. And that's why you're merciful towards your brothers and towards the citizens who aren't Muslim with you. The reason you're doing it is because who Allah Allah de la ilaha illa. Who that's why understand that this is what the these verses are there for is not to spice things up. No, it's to remind you, it grounds us it brings us back, this is why you're doing never forget, never forget who is commanding you. It's easy to forget that. And it turns it when you do forget it, it turns into my group, your group.
It turns into this my belief system, my narrative, yours, and it becomes an issue of class. No, we're all
It's beyond me. Sometimes when I see how much division and how much animosity there is within the Muslim world amongst Muslims.
It's probably the thing that bothers me the most. And especially when the
difference is not on a fundamental piece of belief or a fundamental principle or value. When it is that's a different story. When when someone is any pro volume of some sort, or, or stands by some belief piece that isn't that isn't Islamic or isn't correct. That's a different story. But when we when we agree on the fundamentals, and we agree, but we disagree on the approach, that should not cause division, we can disagree on the approach, that's fine. We can see a problem had the same goal of what we want to happen here. We know what we want here we want a we all want a how are we going to get there, there are three or four routes, I may choose this route, and you may choose choose
another one, we may differ on what route is best to get there. That should not cause division, because that's deferring on the approach, not on the goal, not on the value itself. Muslims, for the majority of us most Muslims, like I talked about 99% of Muslims, we don't disagree on the value or principle or the fundamental belief system, we would disagree on the approach, how to get there. Sometimes that disagreement can be heavy, but still, that disagreement should not cause Muslims to work against each other. But it will if they don't remember why they're doing this. If they don't remember who it is that they're doing this for and whom they're serving by doing it, then yes, it
can turn into an issue of of clashing and it become an actual division and reach right into the heart of the Amanda mobile suffer because of it.
Which is why these verses you'll find you'll find them in so little harsher than you'll find them against with the software, you'll find similar ones and certainly more of your own, you'll find similar you'll find sort of Robin that is just that you'll find some of the data, you'll find all these verses that grounders. Take us back to why we're doing what we're doing. I have to say throughout the soldiers, yes, learn the field, meaning learn the practice, learn the jurisprudence, the rulings, the highlight of the Haram The technicalities, you have to know how to do things, but never ever in the midst of all of it, forget why you're doing it and whom you're doing it for.
Because the moment you forget that you go astray, even if you're practicing it, you will go astray. Because you can't you forgot, you forgot, you forgot an act of service. This is an active service for whom I'm doing this as an active service service for whom and whose name, I don't know and whose name I'm doing it, then I'm not going to do it appropriately. Even if I do it, I won't do it appropriately. There'll be something missing. You can you can do something you can say that. Right? There's ways to say that. You can say mercifully, you can say it compassionately, you can say it appropriately, or you can say it otherwise. It's the same word that's being said, and just hartenbos
terms. It's you are following the teaching, you have to say that, but there are ways to do it just like Sarah, there are ways to do it. Two people can stand and do it the same movement up and down. But there are ways you can do it. And there's so sure, and there's focus and decentralization and there's closeness and or or that you can do it there's not so the hook in terms of doing it correctly. But there's a piece of it, there's a layer to that, that is very important. Without it, the action itself ceases to to serve its purpose.
And later on becomes corrupt. And further on will harm you and others. It's like that is for sure like that. Today ECM
RCM the way that we do it actually
is hazardous to our health. It's not helpful for our health,
meaning we are increasing our cardiovascular risk with the way we perform CME. How about that? is so young that wait no, see I'm is not. But the way we're doing it is where it's just the action of overeating during the night where it's just over eating during the hours or when the sun is down. Yes, that's going to cause you a lot of problems. If it is going to make it you're going to increase in your weights and you're going to become less active, you're going to become more grouchy and during the day and it's not gonna work out. But is that HOCM is supposed to work? Not at all. Is that how it functioned at the beginning? No, it's not. But if you don't if you forget why you're
doing it, and whom you're doing it for and who commanded you and if you don't live with that spirit throughout the day and throughout the month, then yes, it's just you
You're just like, this is a very huge nuance. There's very inconvenience for me not having my coffee and my tea or coffee in the morning or having my food. It's very inconvenient, because we're forgetting why we're forgetting why, who it is that come to ask for it. It's a big ask, don't eat, you understand how heavy that is a mammal, for any living thing, any living thing 10 times out of 10 If you put whatever is nourished by and is not sick, it will eat it 10 times out of 10 any living thing you put whatever its diet actually consists of, and it's not ill it will eat it 10 times out of 10 Now, there are no exceptions to it, except a Muslim who is fasting.
Meaning there's no other reason someone else is hungry, or you know, if the food is available, and it's free, and it's good and you're hungry, and it's your diet and no one's asking for it. 10 times out of 10 every mammal on the planet every living thing on the planet will take it except the Muslim during the vote. Or maybe someone who's doing something similar where they decided that they're not going to eat something.
This is why if you don't know why then it's not going to do anything and this goes for everything within the deal. Everything why you do things matters a lot a lot in nema anodal been the the first Hadith and every book of Hadith every single one man Bukhari Muslim. What do you mean nessa you are Buddha? Would with me? Do you have no manager? Every single one of them if not
all of them they started their book. But the same Hadith? Why? Because it matters a lot in Islam, why you do things? Not to me. Regarding what why you do things it doesn't matter to me, I have no business assuming or asking you even started my business at all you do it. But it matters to you. Why you do things matters to you. And it matters to the one who's watching you. Allah said it matters a lot makes a huge difference of why you did it. And what you were thinking about what what drove it, what the what the motive was for you for doing things. So this juicer that is technical, that is just rulings upon rulings upon rulings, if you don't know why you're doing it, you will lose
the spirit of it, the spirit of it will plummet. And then it'll be done. But it will be done in a way that will make it harmful. It'll become a harsh it'll become meaningless, and it will later on backfire and harm you and those who are actually doing it to begin with.
Which is why his name's here. subhanaw taala are coming at the beginning of this just to remind you're doing it in the name of whom of argument Lee Bucha heard of Obama and Rahim I believe many people could do this, it was set up, you're doing it in his name. So be very careful. Be very careful when you do something in his name. Because he told you to remind yourself who he is. And then you're then you, you slow down. And you think a little bit before you say things and how you say and how you approach and how people perceive it from you.
I think it's a very, very valuable piece of this. And these verses that we recited last time were very similar. Obviously, the verses were beautiful. I don't know if you've enjoyed them I did when I say Cuca Latina nurse, hula dancer home and foster home. And I yesterday I was horrible. Nobody was hobbled and versus take your mind you just why you're here what you're here to do. Don't allow yourself to forget Allah, you can forget Allah subhanaw taala you forget yourself and you forget yourself, you don't have purpose anymore, and you drift meaninglessly in this life, even though you may think that you're not and this Hold on If it was descended upon a mountain upon a pile of rocks,
you would find that pile of rocks would have within it some degree of assure, it would it would Torterra itself in the reverence of its Lord and some of our hearts don't for typical I'm third and unbelievable holiness. I love metaphysical when these examples that we give to people may they contemplate them maybe reflect upon the MIDI think
we started with a number 22 These verses are just very beautiful and I want to take the time and show it to go through the names with you within that time. So we start with number 22 inshallah Tada so Tasha
will be laying him in a shape on your body
with me Bismillah him Walkman of war he
who along who led the Allah Illa Illa who
early Moodle ye we wish her the
whoever one man or Rafi
to get verse by verse inshallah. So the first thing he says, who Allah know in Arabic who is used to refer to the male, but that's not accurate. It's used to refer to any one or group
any conscious group that are not purely female. That's what hula is used to refer to in the Arabic language linguistically speaking, who is used to refer to one or a group that is conscious, that has consciousness and that is not purely female here is used to refer to
to purely female, a female or a group of females, but there's nothing else amongst them because the purity of what the female existence actually is hula is for everything. So who could be talking giraffe and me like who that's looking to as long as there's consciousness and they're not both female then that then it's going to be a hula. So when Allah Azza Banda refers to himself in the pious Hua is not male, he had made that clear in the Quran in many spots, he is not male, nor is he female, because that doesn't apply to Allah subhanaw taala the, the genders that we carry that Allah subhanaw taala gave us are there for the, for the purposes of reproduction, and for the roles that
we play in life so that we figured out how to do it. But really, it's not something that applies to the Divine himself subhanho wa taala. So the usage of who is there because the language has to refer to him somehow. And languages we have only refer to either male or female Arabic, this way or that way.
Unlike English, where you can use it for the nonconscious Arabic doesn't really have that either who are here.
That makes sense. So it depends on what you're saying shrimps here shrimps will come out who will come around you'll see it is no it in terms of referring to things. So in English it's not because they refer to Allah is it? This is something new started last couple of decades. He's not mailed and don't say He is Allah say it is Allah. Well, that's for the nonconscious. So it doesn't work. That sounds actually rude. So you stick to the what the English and it's not just the Arabic language that way, almost every language is like that in terms of its origin. That's just how the languages work. So who Allah is not referring to any degree, anything to do with his gender, gender, that's
not something that we applied to him. We never used that term when describing him subhanaw taala is just explaining it from a linguistic perspective because who Allah is something that comes to mind when you hear it. Say who Allah who He is, He is Allah. And then it starts to describe him. And let the Illa Illa Illa. Who the one where there is no ILA, but himself. In our deen, the first piece of our belief is La Ilaha. That's the first piece of our belief, la isla, there is no God. There is no God, except one. Except for it's not the other way around. You don't say?
This is our God. And there's no one else? No, no, we see there is no God, there's impossible, it's impossible for there to be a God except this one, except the one. This is the only
scenario where you could accept a god. And this is the truth of how our deen works. If you go and study the concept of a deity of a supreme power of the Divine One, and you look at it, not just religiously, but philosophically, you will find that the only way you could believe in a Divine Being is the way that Allah subhanaw taala is described in the Quran. Every other description has fundamental philosophical flaws that make you stand and say this is not possible, what you're explaining doesn't work. It doesn't work doesn't fit, there's something that is messed up. And then if you're asking me just to completely turn off my brain, and that's what they're telling me that
upfront, Islam doesn't, the description of Allah and the Quran is not telling you, you need to just follow mindlessly or blindly or turn off your brain, it's the opposite. It's a look at the universe. And you will find that the universe, the only way for it to exist, is to have a designer and the only designer that you can believe in, is the one that is described in the Quran, and his name is Allah and that's it. That's why the beginning is la isla. There is, there's not a lot none of this, there's none, there's none. So I find that I can actually, I need to speak more openly with atheist than the people who have other belief systems. Because the atheist has half it's half of it done.
Law. Good. You have that piece. Let me just explain to you how in the law fits into your is missing in your, in your vocation is a piece of this missing. And usually the reason that they come to that ILA is because of the description of the Lord that they have in their books or in their culture. There's a description of the Lord and their culture that just does not make any sense make any sense? It's very petty is pitiful, is human like it has has the describe God, William jelajah is like looking at things. Thank you. Thank you, Angelica. Allah has described in ways and I remember this, I'm gonna tell you, sir, so this Hello, the same Hello. I've been running it for what
many years now? Seven years, seven, eight years. So it's been a while now we've been going through a lot of the parts of the Quran so far. I don't think we did this one before. No, we didn't do this from before. No, we didn't. We did just to Barack Obama. And then he went back went around and did sewers, just all over the place. cough in his urban suburban Maria, Minnesota and stuff like that. So once into the Halacha
isn't lmm and this was an uncommon, it's more common here. It wasn't, wasn't coming at that time. A white a white gentleman walked in a gentleman that wasn't Muslim, visibly non Muslim, Caucasian Canadian, he walks in he sits and he's attending the session. So we finished it was very just
One common element for me to see that so I'm not you're here, here we're used to, there was not. So we were done the Halacha. So I go and I shake his hand and say, you know, so apparently he was an Angelica one priest that needed was taking doing his masters or PhD somewhere. And a part of the course was they had to go and attend some lesson you remember this, remember, this guy got to attend like sessions in a in other faiths and sit down and listen, we can learn from other kind of listen to it. So we attended and listen to it. I remember that we chatted maybe for a couple of minutes. And within those couple of a couple of minutes, he started speaking a little bit about, you know
about God. And I couldn't I can't I'm not going to, I can't even explain I can't see it. Okay, the way he described God, and he was just doing it normally, in terms of, you know, how I just I was, I was physically taken aback. Like, no, no, I would never. How did you? How can you even say that? How can even use that that term and describing the almighty I know, it's, so you find out that as a Muslim, you have a very unique understanding of who Allah is, the other faiths don't share with you. other faiths can get disgruntled, they can turn and ask why they feel that they can object in question, because the faith has put them in a position where God is more human like flesh and blood,
as children has partners gets angry, loses his temper has no, no no genders, you know, Allah, to Allah, Allah, Who am I to say, No, Quran is just SubhanaHu Tada, never, that's not we don't look at him. We know that's not how Allah subhanaw taala is. So our understanding of Allah was very unique. But it's the only way. It's the only way that this universe can have a god to begin with. There is no other there's no other possibility that exists. And this is an important part of understanding rafidah It really is, it takes little bit of time to kind of wrap your head around all the topics, but it's very, very important.
So they'll always be the first thing he describes himself as there is no God. But there's no one, no one else. That concept of Tawheed, the most important part of being Muslim. There's nothing that trumps that one piece, everything else is second is a far second to the concept of no hate, it will always be the one word that you can use to describe Islam. And if you were if you were forced, describe to someone one word you will say to hate. That's what it is, is the concept of monotheism, of accepting Allah, Allah illAllah. And if you wonder, why is it so important? So I believe in one God or two gods or three gods or 50? Gods, what does it make it, it makes a huge difference. It's a
fundamental difference. And it bothers me that people don't understand it. And I have done like, lots of sessions on this. And I've tried to explain it and and let me just summarize it for you to understand
the concept of Tawheed the importance of it is not regarding Allah subhanaw taala himself.
It's not something that he needs you to say, or else he gets upset, jelajah Allah, that's not how it is, you can do it's the only truth in the world. If you say that you are you don't, this is about you. It's not about him, he will allow you to hate love. That's the fact you're just either getting in line or you're not, it doesn't make a difference. But why is it important to you? Because it's about the source of values. It's about the source of boundaries. That's what this is about. The concept of hate is the source of boundaries and values. Who is it that gives you your set of values and boundaries, who dictates them for you? Now, let's, let's jump ahead and say you know what,
you're a free thinker, and you dictate them for yourself. Okay, great. You decide what your boundaries and values are? Do you know yourself? Do you know how many times you change your mind within your life? You know, how many transitions you go through within your life? Are you telling me today the opinions you carry about the world and yourself and people around you? Is this the same you had 10 years ago? Are they gonna be the same in 10 years, the only time your opinions are the same as when you're dead. If you're alive, you continue to change your mind about so many things. You have different feelings towards everything going around, it's natural, you're a human being,
you're supposed to be able to enjoy that part of yourself, which is your you're flexible, you're adaptive, you're always thinking. So for you to action for me to set my own boundaries and my own values is very wrong. It's very dangerous, because I set them in one way today. And then in a couple of years, I will revise and I'll change them and a and moving boundaries and moving lines and moving values mean nothing. There, their value is nothing. They mean nothing at all. Value is only a value. If it's constant. If it stays there, in the wind with the tornadoes, tsunamis of change, after everything is gone, the value is still sticking right there.
So let's say it's not you, let's say it's someone else.
Let's say it's a group of people, let's say the smartest people who walked the planet. At the end, they're human like you and at some point when they draw that red line in the sand for you. They say this is the line don't cross it. You can easily say who drew that line.
Well, if we learn and learn and Fudan Anna, well, who are they?
They died 500 years ago. Did they know what I was going to be going through today? No, I'm gonna move this line over there. I don't like that line. There. They're human like me. So I'm really not necessarily superior to me. And I'm able to think for myself, but they're not around they didn't didn't anticipate this, the interest anticipate what I'm going through, so their lines are meaningless. No matter how you think about this, there is no way for values and principles and boundaries to be constant. Without Illa Illa. Allah is impossible without law in the law, which is why communities and nations and groups of people
What was the Western world like in 1923?
In terms of the basic values?
What was it like, similar today? What it was today?
How similar was
there are pictures by the way, the people had cameras, they can take a picture of people walking down the street 1923 2023
the values change dries, not saying that the oil got worse, no, suddenly got better, suddenly got better. Some values were wrong, then not wrong, better today, there's a lot more. So there are certain types of racism back then that maybe had become frowned upon publicly now. Some not all.
But regardless, regardless, the reason that these shifts happen is because they're the basis the source of their values was not like
it was a committee or as a group or a faith that has more than one if you have a lot of Gods if one of them says this is haram go to the other one.
Now go to the other one. You'll find one, you'll find one okay. Yeah, no big deal. Okay, good. It's fine. Someone to tell you something different. If it's a committee, there's always always someone who could always some disagreements, if it's a person, you got to get someone to change their mind. A Muslim, you pick them up, you parachute them to any place and time throughout history. Move it however you want. Drop them
is you knows how to study because how long Cutlass how long. They have to be compassionate, they have to be loving, they have to be fair, you pick them up, put them in the far future on Mars. As soon as haram haram and I think this doesn't change this is it? This does not this is not this is not something that is debatable. That is what the haters, that is what to hate is to hate gives you the consistence the consistency and the constant values, principles and boundaries.
And if you say well, that's not what he's doing for me. Exactly. That's exactly the problem. It's exactly the problem. That's what you're supposed to do for you. You are what Allah subhanaw taala explains to you to be, and then you're like that, regardless, if you have a lot of money, you're generous. And if you have no money, you're also generous. If you have a lot of money, you wouldn't steal, if you have no money, you still wouldn't steal. And you said that this is this is what it means. This is what it means to have to hate in your life. Now you'll make mistakes, that's fine. Meaning at one point, you get weak and you make a mistake, but your value your principles, your
belief system has to change. You know what's right, you know what's wrong, that will never change? It's easy for me to have discussions with people who know what's right, even if they're not doing it. It's much easier, it's impossible to have a discussion with someone who doesn't actually believe that thing you're pointing out is the right one. Within within within the Muslim community. Within the Muslim community, they don't believe it's impossible, if they somehow have changed the value in the principle, if alcohol is not haram to them, there's nothing I can do. There's nothing I can do. But if someone is drinking, but they know is haram, this is fixable, this is fixable, and they will
make it and they will find mercy and they will find forgiveness and they will find salvation. Because at least the value is there. They didn't because now Illa is helping them keep the value. There's how wrong I am making a mistake. I'm wrong. I shouldn't be doing this. But but at least I know that this value is is constant doesn't change. That's what the Hades about. That's why to Hades important. A Muslim doesn't you lose weight, put them anywhere, anywhere you go, you still hold on to those values and principles. And if you don't, then you have to go back and understand to hate appropriately. So that it does that for you. Because the source of your values is not some guy or a
bunch of dudes, or some mortal know, the source of your values is the divine himself. So yes, he anticipated all that was going to happen. And yes, he knew what was going to occur to you specifically. And yes, he accounted for everything that you're going through. And yes, he put that red line and he he's commanding that you don't cross it. So that line never changes. It's permanent. It's eternal. That's what he does. He's like looking at me. It makes those lines those values those principles. What makes me me very clear. I can lose sight of them every once in a while. midst of the storm, I can't lose sight of them, but I know where they they're still there. They're still

In the most important piece of everything that we'll talk about these verses is not one description. Only one way because shahada, the omnipotent the unleashes the omniscience, the one who knows all Elohim is the unseen. A shahada is the observable or is a tangible or is the measurable shahada is everything that we are animals. shahada in Arabic is the world of the scene, meaning everything that we have the ability to trace, everything that we have the ability to make a gadget that will, they'll be able to pick up something, which is something that we have no way to access, you need to understand that there are two parts of existence, there is Tjahaja, the observable universe and all
that we can measure within it, there's life, which we don't, we don't have the ability to measure certain things. Because there again, we can't catch a picture of one of them in Africa. We can't pick up a gin on an MRI, we can't, we can't, I can't do a blood test and see if you have sad or hesitancy because these are, these are unscented, there's no way to measure them. There's no way they're not measurable. They're outside of the world that we live in, they're in something that we don't have access to. We know they're there we accept them. And Allah subhanaw taala is the omniscience who knows everything in the in the real world. He himself is lead generation.
He himself has laid
this out this is very important. Those who are waiting for science to prove God. Let me just go ahead and pop that bubble for you. Anything that science proves by definition will not be God anymore. If science proved it, it ain't God. Why? Because if science does prove it, then it's contained within the observable universe is in time space. And Allah subhanaw taala is not. So you cannot come up with an equation to actually prove God, the definition of God does not allow for that to begin with. So it's a it's a complex question fallacy that they'll keep on using and people who don't understand what this is about. It's important doesn't work that way.
It's very simple, though. If you under if you take a moment, and you contemplate it. All animals are up wish there are things that we as Muslims, you accept. We live in the world that is the seen world, the tangible world, the measurable world, and our decisions are based on that. Based on it, you're not allowed to walk around depending on others don't you base everything on that. But you do know that there is the unseen, Allah has lived, his Gen knows labor nowadays, vape. All America or the general like all that is labor. So they, you're not
responsible for knowing anything about them. Aside from what Allah tells you in the Quran, don't go looking for them physically. Don't go trying to find within minutes, don't waste your time. Everything you need to know about the laborers right here, read it, you know it, focus on the scene, focus on what it is that you can do, that you're responsible to be a part of. Finally move at OSHA to number one is the one and only. And here's the Omniscient, the one that knows the Unseen and the unseen.
Who are Rahman Al Rahim, He is the Most Merciful, general compassion, which is a black man, and specific compassion, which is why so these two names come from the exact same route. The Name of Allah, Allah man caused a problem for the people of Croatia.
For lack of a better word, they hated the name.
Because it was just so beautiful. And it was a coined name. It was a name that it was a word is a usage of the Arabic language that didn't exist before.
The root Rahima are mean, you can take an Arabic and derive you can derive words from roots. That's how it works. So if you want it to be an object, or the person who's doing it, sorry, the subject then often, if you want it to be someone who was getting compassion motorhome Mfold microphone, if you want someone to be described as compassionate, you'll see Rahim fail, and then every derivative has a little way of doing it.
But not every word has all of the derivatives. Not every word. Not every root has everything derived from it. So Rama didn't have Rockman
the fallen so you have our churn, you have Juwan.
But then Rockman wasn't coined yet. So when the prophet Isaiah saw Saddam came and he described Allah as Aquaman
if people understood the Arabs understood the language, it hit them. It's such a beautiful, beautiful name. The one who has passion for everything.
Everything is not specific.
It's not specific. There's no specificity when you use the derivative Fallon. It's there's no specificity anymore.
You're not for one specific thing. You're hungry. You're hungry for for that food and you're just hungry. Just it's just open. There's no specificity to it. So Oh, man. He's just the most compassionate for everyone. The ones who listen to him the ones
Who don't the ones who love them the ones who don't the ones who obey the ones who don't? Rama? Rahim is a description of it in that their specificity there mean He's described as that within whatever contexts he wants to be described as that in? Does that make sense? Rahman is innate. That's who he is Subhana wa Tada. He will always be the most compassionate to all those to everything. Rahim is a choice. I'll be compassionate to those who might choose to be compassionate to what kind of me Nina Rahima regarding the believers you use over him.
And he always describes himself like that, you would think that maybe he would balance it out? Right? I always wondered that on his kid. And Bismillah R Rahman Illman. Talking, for example, just so that you have like a name that is compassionate, a name that is heavy, so that someone who doesn't have any higher in him or some person does not learn, I need to remember is that Allah will also be No, he chose for every Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim. And it makes a heck of an effort to translate this appropriately. He is the one who has the most compassion for all creation, and the one who has compassion that he specifies for those who he loves.
But reminding you that he this compassion is for everyone first. So you can't walk around thinking that it's just for me. We're just for you. Because you believed No, it's for everything. Obviously, varying degrees are not Rahim. This is the this is the basis like this, this area, before moving on, gave us the basis of what you need to know, before we move forward, know that he is the one know that he is the omniscient and know that He is the Most Compassionate in the different levels that compassion is given.
I'm gonna give you an example of I'll do this quickly for it. When you're talking about omniscience without that you wouldn't really if you if you remove them, if you wrote the fact that Allah knows all then why would you even worship when you have to worship?
If you think about it, like if Allah said if you remove that one description, he's not on label show. He's not an ally. You still worship him?
No, you would. You wouldn't. You'd be a very strong being but it wouldn't be Allah
he's Allah because he's limited that doesn't work any other way. Meaning this is the only this is the only answer. Every detail of who Allah Subhanallah isn't the Quran is the only acceptable possible answer for this universe and his creator. There's no other answer. That's why that you know, there's nothing else there's no other possibilities. There's nothing everything else is is fundamentally flawed. fundamentally flawed he doesn't know then why he doesn't know if you don't know what's happening next. Then even if you're really strong there's always a possibility that
you get surprised and if you can get a surprise you can be beaten
if you can be beaten thank God anymore. Just simple as that just as simple as that Bob and it was it was shot of course he knows all of course. I wouldn't. I wouldn't be wouldn't make sense for it to be anything else. In this that's the importance of understanding who Allah subhanaw taala is because I find this to be something people struggle with. We continue to show who Allah who led the ILA who will Melek.
Melly Kulu could do so Salem will mean we'll move Amy No lazy is
as easily Jabba will Muhtar Kent Bill
Suba Han Allah here
you Shri goon

Okay, let's go through these names who Allahu Allah de la isla in LA who again he'll repeat the same statement he made at the beginning. Subhanallah what's the honor, just to just to make sure that it's clear it's worth bringing up twice that they use the only one there is no delight but him there's no deity worthy of worship aside for him Subhana wa Tada. He is the source of all your values, boundaries and principles. And in Malik he's the king
Malik the king. In Arabic, this means he has ownership
issue of owning things.
You and I belong to Allah
we belong to him, as in we are owned by him gelato, not just my body, not my spirits as well my consciousness is property of Allah subhanaw taala. I don't own myself. I didn't buy it. I did not contribute to it. There is no. How would you argue that it's yours? How would you stand in front of couldn't argue that it's yours based on what? What exactly did you do? Nothing. I don't own myself I'm property of Allah, which in essence means that I cannot be oppressed by Allah subhanaw taala by definition, by definition, I can't be oppressed. Because I have no rights because I don't own anything. There's nothing. There's nothing about me that I have that he can take away that is mine.
Every I am I belong to him. I know what that is so myself. So there's no way for me to make an argument to say that you oppressed me yet. Subhana wa taala, out of out of out of his own mercy out of his own
love and compassion and grace. He said, No, no, I'm going to give you rights. And I swear that you will never be mistreated, and I will treat you just another day of judgment. That's just out of his own Grace Subhana wa Tada. But by definition, you cannot be oppressed by Allah subhanaw taala. Because you don't own anything. There is nothing that
the promises he made to you.
No one forced him to do it. There is no un sanction that keeps it not that it would matter to begin with. But there's nothing there's no it's not written anywhere. It's not signed anywhere. Nothing. He just promised I will make I'm gonna give you this.
If you decided not to I,
you wouldn't realize you're not Allah. But he explained to us of who he is. By understanding the issue. In many cases, the key, use the kink, use the one who owns all that brings the heart a lot of
serenity. Just just calms you down. whatever they're doing, they're doing within his kingdom, they will be
they will be accountable.
Everyone Answers to the king. Everyone Answers to the king regarding what they did within his kingdom, everybody does. We all go back, are all held to what it is we did. Very simple.
So that brings us not only a certain degree of comfort, but it also reminds us that we do have a role here to play. There is something that's required of us and we will be asked about it too.
But just in case there was an Melek makes you think well kings have always
historically been flawed, in different ways, you will produce will produce is the holy is the Divine
is the one who is has no imperfections attached to him. The one that you cannot describe as you would describe a human being the one that does not have the flaws of a human means you could do a Cebu. He is the divine he is the one who has no flaws. Jalaja that's what the produce means. But the sanctity is holiness produced the holy, the sacred, the divine, the one who cannot be compared to human beings, the one who you can't say, well, Kings become this to begin with to come that well, that's for human beings, because they are taking on a job that was never they were never designed to pick up in the first place.
They were picking up a job that they were never designed to to have a name or a status, a status and a stature and a and a designation that they were never we were never designed to be that. So yes, it will be flawed when we do it because we don't understand how to do it because we're not designed to do it. But Allah Subhan doesn't make any produce none of the none of the flaws that you will think about, then the one that you can imagine apply to him generally. He is beyond all of that he is the flawless he is the one that no matter what you know, what, what flaw with imperfection, but it's just it's not Allah. You don't turn you don't reflected upon. That's how we this concept is what
makes your understanding of God different.
I mean, we're talking a second ago about the story of the god. This is the difference to you, Allah is will produce, you will never, ever take a flaw or imperfection or a mistake or something that you don't like and then reflect it as an attribute to the Almighty and never. Why because he's produced it. Because his medical produce. That's not how you look at things. There is a story here there's going to be tell within that story. There is pain, there's agony, there's oppression, there are calamities, there are misfortunes there is suffering, it's a part of the story. He never said it was going to be anything different. He didn't come out and promise he was this is going to be rainbows
and butterflies forever. And then it turned out this No. This story from the beginning was told there's going to be this was going to look like there's going to be a lot of pain. That's the only way that the human race will identify able to appreciate the other side of things. We don't have the ability to understand definition. There's no opposite to it. There's no opposite to something we can understand.
definition, you only understand sweetness because you understand sourness, you only understand health because there is disease. If you took a rock, and you said this is a healthy rock does not have any meaning to it, can Iraq be healthy or unhealthy? Or how do you how does that term apply to this poor thing? That term is mean is meaningless unless of course, it has a some application within within geology that though that they have a terminology that they've used to kind of come up with something. But in terms of the actual meaning of the word that we use, you can't describe it as thirsty or hungry. Why? Because it's the opposite because it doesn't does it doesn't exist, it can
never be can't be fooled to be hungry, and vice versa. So everything that you see in this world is because we need without it, we wouldn't able to be able to identify any we couldn't define things, but we live down does that make us want to? The only way things become definable, understandable, you have to have an opposite. You have to say that oh, it could be this. If there's no other options, and that's what it is.
We all die.
We all die.
Immortality is not an option.
That's why our brains doesn't understand it. I
mean, I can define it for you. And you listen to it. But when you think about it, it's not something we could wrap our heads around. What do you mean forever? What do you mean forever? Like they never stopped started? He never started. Never Ends. Like if I go to jail, I'll never end like it'll be No, you think about it. Your poor brain can't do it. But no, there must be at some point something that because you because mortality is the only thing we understand. You can you don't understand the other piece yet. Even though it's there, this is an example something is there and we still can't understand the opposite.
It will produce
two meanings for the grantor of peace
and the one who has no impurities. selima in shade me that there's nothing
there's nothing that's affecting them. Muslim woman setting male Muslim Muna Melissa and he were the Muslim is the one that other Muslims they are they don't have any of his harm. So as Saddam is the one who has no impurities, there's nothing. There's nothing that that has affected him in a negative way. He doesn't carry any impurities. And instead on the grand tour of peace, because again, when you think of the king, you start wondering, there's their flaws. No. Is he about war? No.
Is it about tyranny? No, and Workman, the grantor of safety. Movement is the grantor of safety of security among a man who's in your safe and your secure, and the movement, the one who grants that for you.
When you describe yourself as a movement, you're a believer. And that's a whole different. I guess I'll come from the same roots is a different way to derive the meaning of the word. And the movement is the one who grant safety. So they describe themselves to Palatine as the king he made sure they describe himself with a couple of names afterwards to understand what type of King is a king who was was looking to seize divine. The flaws you see of others doesn't apply to him.
He is the grantor of peace. He's not a king out for war or blood. And he's the grantor of safety and security is not here to make us scared
anymore Haman. So Mr. Heyman has two pieces to it. Hey mana, meaning some Heyman attache, meaning controlled it is controlled it and is aware of all of it. So it has the concept of control, as the concept of full awareness. So how you manner meaning there's nothing under him subhanaw taala that he does not control, nothing goes out of his control. And also nothing goes without him being aware of it delusional. That's what he means. So he's a king that does not have the flaws of the human kings. He's a grantor of peace, not for war. He's a grantor of safety. He's not out to make people scared. And he is not ignorant to what's occurring within his kingdom. He is Mohammed nothing goes
without Allah subhanaw taala knowing about it, nothing goes against what Allah subhanaw taala wills so the things that happen happen because they are inevitable they were going to happen they're a part of a destiny. You may like it, you may just like it, it doesn't matter what you like and what you dislike. It never did. But I want to I don't want to carry no weight in this world and what's going to happen in it. I can disagree with it. I don't it doesn't matter because I'm not the one who writes the story. I have no ability to do that to begin with. Actually I am occupying myself with an aspect of this that I have no control over and it's not even my place because I'm very very weak and
far from it.
But he isn't more Haman Subhana wa Tada. He watches overall and controls all even with the pain, the suffering, he still does upon Otago. As he's
just to understand that this king is not lacking in any form or manner.
The ability to make decisions, or that this king can be beaten, he has the disease, the definition that he would give the nameless he is a valuable Lila you're the one who can
bunkers will never will never be conquered under the legacy of Amaya fallow homes alone. He doesn't answer to anyone lies he is the one who answers to no one. There is no board.
There's not a bunch of bankers in the background that this king owes money to. No lobbyists to but this problem utilizes he is the one who answers to no one meaning the decisions he made he makes up I know it's either on his own there is no influence. What sort of no one has the ability to influence him lycees Jabbar.
There are two meanings for the word name and Jabbar
number one is the Compeller
is from the concept of
each bar which is to coerce or to compel someone to do something. Also, it comes from the concept that the root of juggler which is to mend
a fracture or something broken Jabbar is the one who men's that which is broken.
he broke Cassidy mend my broken heart or men mend my flaws, men, there's parts of me that are broken. And only the jump bottle will do that.
So he's a king.
He's not flawed like other kings. He's got deuce. He's not up for war. He said he's not a tyrant. He's the grantor of safety.
He is not ignorant of that which is occurring around him. He's in Wyoming. He does not answer to anyone. He's in ICS. And he mends the all that is broken in his kingdom. Everything that breaks everything that is in pain there all the suffering all of that agony. He's a boss upon which I know he will mend it.
Sometimes it happens in dunya and sometimes it happens later, but he will mend it. And no Kassar will go with algebra. Every break will be mended by Jabbar Subhana wa Tada. And he will compel those who broke it
to a punishment. That's the usage of the word. He will compel the ones who broke to punishment and then he will mend the fractures of those who were were hurt. And then with the computer.
So what are some of the worst translations you'll find in the category those translate that is arrogance and then you slap your head and agonda You know,
with the cover is arrogant when you describe a human being. Because I'm putting myself in a position that I don't belong in.
How do I how am I could be how am I sublime how, in what way, in what way, I control nothing about my own existence, I did not plan my my coming into this world, nor can I stop my leaving this world. I don't control any aspect of my biology, I can barely figure out small pieces of my psychology. I am extremely fragile and very weak. I am not in any form or manner better or ahead of anyone surrounding me or any living thing I come from the earth like everyone else does, that will go back into it and disappear like everything else does. So for me to put myself in a position higher than anyone is me completely out of place. completely out of place. I'm just it may seem that that's the
right move just no just completely out of place. If you're in a putting yourself in a position higher than anything around you. That's not your position. You're a servant. What are you doing? What are you doing? Enza? You're not that's not very your, but Allah subhanaw taala is not see, my reality is I'm a servant. So if I act like a servant, I'm not being that's my, that's my norm. Because that's the natural state for me. Not being humble. Humbleness is a is a realisation of reality. That's all humbleness is humbleness is realisation of reality, who you are you just know it. You're not lying to yourself anymore. So you behave according to who you are which we are
servants from the earth. That's it. There's no reason for us to think we're better than him. Why wouldn't we if we're, if that's who we are, and this is who we are.
If I put myself in any other position, then suddenly I am no longer in the right place. So I'm arrogant and with the company, but Allah subhanaw taala is ill Kabir he is the sublime promoter. Cadbury is the supreme because that's who he used to partner with and he is not a serpent
nor a creation.
He controls every aspect of his existence, I control nothing of my existence. He controls all his existence and mine. That's why he's God. That's why Allah subhanaw taala is Allah and that's why we have to know who Allah is. That's why knowing who Allah is it makes practicing circular Masada and hashtag and then Mahina and all the other store is easy, because you know who you're listening to. Because you know who you're abiding by. This is one
molecule produced to Salem remote middle Mohammed, Aziz al Jabbar and with
all the descriptions we understand who we is Subhan Allah He the exalted Allah is the Exalted when I'm mostly coming from all of the acts of a police theism and
claiming associates and claiming
To him, he is exhausted from all the claims that they make about him supplying them with Todd, who Allah who will hardly bear it will most over. These are the three
names that describe the three possibilities that we have the three, the three pieces will never figure out three things, you'll never figure out. Not only will you never figure out
you're not even there's there are no tools in the world that are interested in figuring them out.
Oh, look, the One who created something from nothing. Something is from nothingness, going from nothingness to something that we don't understand that. Even when you look at the air, it's not nothingness. There's a lot of molecules there. They're just not holding on to each other. So when they go like this, they actually just kind of swerve around. That's when you drive a car, and it's 300 kilometers per hour. And you and you don't you put your hand out, your hand goes back. Why? Because now the molecules are just, you're hitting them too quickly. So but you know, there's no, there's no cons, the concept of nothing is even in spaces and even real, because there's still
space, there's still three dimensions. So it's not nothing. It's not nothing. It's empty, as far as we can tell from Moloch. But it's not nothing. So we'd understand what nothingness is.
But he created something from nothingness. Science has no interest in learning anything about that. And that piece will never understand. How did Allah go from something from nothing to something? That's one question about the grantor of life?
Yes, green and blue. Planet is just orbiting around the sun, the moon is moving seas are going? How do you make something breathe?
How do you make something take a breath? How? How do you take all of these molecules and all of these elements? How do you put nitrogen and oxygen and carbon and hydrogen and mercury? And how do you put all these things in magnesium and calcium? And how do you make membranes out of them? And and how do you make ends that and then how do you make it brief? How do you make it just take that first that first Oregon's in the, in the in the volcanic waters of Australia or Mexico that they're going to take the first breath? How how do you go from just elements to to life? You have no idea. And even when you study biology, we're not looking for that. We're just looking to understand it.
We're not we don't care how it doesn't matter.
Then we'll solver the grantor of purpose.
All right, you have life? Why does life want to live?
Why does life want to live? Why? Why do you want to live? Why do you want what is everything that is alive wants to survive? Why? Why does everything that's alive want to improve? wants to take a step forward? One more energy why? I understand it does that but why? Why does life want to adapt and evolve and get stronger and take more energy? Why?
We don't know. We just know that it does. So we're able to use that for purposes of research and improving life. But why does life want to live? And why does life behave the way it does instinctively? Innately without any what does it do that Allah to Allah will Harlequin valuable Musa what are the three questions we have no answers for nothing to something we don't understand how that happened. Something to life no idea life that is driven somehow no no clue. No clue look, we just know that it does and we use it
