Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters. How do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him like to know is he Junko compulsory for him? Somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
You mentioned about principles are there any principles of towhee the last philosopher, right? There
are definitely many principles with regards to read and asthma versified. And to it, we try to gain more better and clearer understanding with to believe in this category of tawheed.
As we mentioned, the read smile was the fart means to believe in Allah subhanaw taala names and attributes, how it has to be believed, we get to know from the prophet of Islam, Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And he taught when we study the Quran and the Sunnah, there are many principles that we could find, to believe in this category of Torah number one, to believe that Allah subhanho wa Taala, he has all the beautiful names. He has the most beautiful names. So we need to believe as a part of principle, the first principle in this category of tawheed, that Allah subhanaw taala alone, he alone has the most beautiful names. That's number one. Number two, to
believe that Allah subhanaw taala has the most perfect attributes, there is no one who has got more better or perfect attribute than the attribute of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we need to believe as a principle, in the category of a smile was the fact that all the attributes which are perfect, belongs to Allah subhanaw taala alone. The third principle that we need to believe in it and practice it is that Allah subhanaw taala hasn't got just 99 names. He has many other names as well. However, we know that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him mentioned that Allah subhanaw taala has 99 names 100 minus one, whoever memorizes and comprehends them will have what Jenna, the incentive of
memorizing and comprehending in the names and attributes of Allah, his agenda. However, from other narrations, we also get to know that Allah subhanaw taala has many other names as well. It is not limited to 99 names, under the principle that we need to make sure and believe in practice in it. The fourth principle is that Allah subhanaw taala he is unique, therefore, we cannot, from our own selves, give any name to Allah subhanaw taala which Allah and His Messenger did not give. We cannot give Allah any name which we think it's good from our own mind from our own thinking to Allah subhanaw taala which was not given by Allah and His Messenger, fifth principle. The sixth principle
is we cannot describe Allah subhanaw taala from our own understanding, from our own thinking, which was not described by Allah and His Messenger, the seventh principle is that we cannot give Allah subhanaw taala the qualities of the creation like for example, we can't say Allah rests, Allah eats a lot drinks. These all are the characteristics or the qualities of the creation. We cannot give the quality of the creation to Allah subhanho wa Taala number eight, we cannot give any creation, the quality of Allah subhanaw taala For example, I can't say a Brahim is all powerful.
Abdur Rahim is all seeing Abrahim is all seen. This is direct check, associating partner with Allah subhanaw taala. The creation cannot be given the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That's eight number nine
We need to believe that Allah Subhana Allah has face, hands and feet. However, we don't know how it is. But it is an article of our faith to believe that Allah has this. Why? Because Allah mentioned in it. However, Allah Subhana Allah says, In Surah Surah Surah number 42 and number 11, laser commissioning, he say,
there is no similitude whatsoever like unto Allah subhanaw taala. So we don't know how it is, but we know for sure he has that. So that is again the principle of tawheed usma wazifa. Another principle is that we need to believe that Allah subhanaw taala is not everywhere. His existence is not everywhere, but his knowledge is there, he can see everywhere, he knows everything, he is aligned with who you are, he is the Knower of the unseen. He knows what goes in your heart. He is he knows what goes in your mind, but he is not everywhere. Allah Subhana Allah says in Surah Taha surah number 20 and number five, R Rahman Al Arusha Stella Rahman, Allah subhanho wa Taala he established
himself upon us. So he is above the seven skies, that is us. And He is Allah subhanaw taala he's the he's established himself upon us. He's an Allah the Most High. So these are the principles that you need to keep in mind in order to practice and believe in third grade and asthma was the fact of their answers to questions.
Can you explain the word Allah,
the word Allah Subhana Allah, this is such a beautiful, meaningful and powerful name, because it's the Greatest Name of Allah subhana wa Tada. It is not the name given by the creation. Allah subhanaw taala choses his name to be as a law. And this is the most powerful and Greatest Name of Allah subhanaw taala. It is the name which includes and comprehends all the names and attributes of Allah subhanaw taala within it.
