smilo salatu salam ala rasulillah Valeri wasabi your Salah
inshallah, we will start with the this is the second lecture in shut down
and we began handed in last time with the introduction so introduction about that data and the importance of al Qaeda who the author is what the book is what it's about and the introduction of the author reason why he wrote this book
so Charla tonight we'll begin with the
the first issue then the shakes, Rahim Allah lemon mousse en la mala starts with his Aloo Why is it in the ascendancy of Allah?
So after the introduction, he says, This is on page 79, if you're following the Arabic,
he says, I am in
healthy health, I will be no more one further
So he says, the IMO law and in it he is above his throne.
And in IRC, so if you say something,
some type of Allah, you know, this is, you know, pennies.
On top of the power above it says add in other axes above is strong. So here are two things First of all, that our last panel with the hand, has a throne, an actual throne, right? We don't know how it looks. What I mean by an actual throne is why it exists. It's not metaphoric, its existence. And it tells us that Allah Subhana Allah data is that he had appointed Angel's hammer to
carry the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the throne is there. And it's described as the ceiling sup full mahalo
Sakuma the ceiling of creation meaning beyond the throne above the Throne, there's no creative thing
right? So it's the ceiling right so as like there is no message above the ceiling of this message in the throne is the ceiling of creation above the Throne. There's no creation. Above the throne, though is what is who? Allah Subhana
Allah subhanaw taala.
So it says there in the note, the movie editor, he says in one of the manuscripts he says ironing ice that he
is above his throne in himself be that he in himself and one of the manuscripts. He says this is reminiscent of what famously ignored Museo del Pilar whiny in ERISA Allah says something one note Allah focaccia Majeed be that he?
No, he's a. He is a Maliki
is a Maliki co wrote this book, a reseller reseller is mainly a book in fifth in the Maliki method in the introduction is an introduction and arcada.
Service Allah is foundationally, the Maliki Madhavi and everybody who is a medic, he should know that book every seller. So as Amazon is Mufasa, Amazon is foundational. In the Shakti method, so is a result of foundational in the Maliki method. So in the introduction, if no Abizaid, okay, Ron in America, he says that our last panel data is above his throne, that he in himself in one of manuscripts here it says in himself, and why does he add in himself ignore these eight? And in some of the manuscripts Why does he add in himself? Though initially, it's not needed.
Initially, you understand that Allah subhanaw taala is above his throne. So why not be that he is for emphasis and clarification?
Because someone may say
that Allah soprano data is above his throne, in terms of honor,
not in reality, but in terms of honor, grantor majesty, meaning that the language is a figurative metaphorical language. But in reality, our last panel, Allah in himself is not there.
So to remove any doubt,
some of the automa and then the editor mentions them some of the automa add that phrase be that he so that when they are affirming this fact, there is no doubt in the minds of the listener, or the reader what they mean.
It himself is there. So because of that confusion, or the misinterpretation, they add that phrase Sometimes, though, initially, it wasn't needed. And the opinion about the hobby, as the editor of your mentions is that it's better to leave it when you don't need it true. When you
needed, it's better to leave it there is no need for that addition. But in that circumstance and sometimes these circumstances persist, to clarify
that Allah subhanho wa Taala is above his throne in himself.
So he says he's there, but will who are then in the name unhealthy, but Oh, he is close to his creation.
Then in the premium and healthy is close, close to his creation with his knowledge,
he says, help it move a little more. So allas knowledge has encompassed surrounded everything.
He said, because
that is whatever Allah had already destined to happen, he had made it so in his creation,
and for the faculty, meaning that his creation, have actually followed the destiny of our last panel data. Then he concludes by saying,
he knows what is hidden by the lie on the betrayal of the eyes, that is when the eye is betrayed. Though no one else notices the betrayal of the eyes or the betraying eyes, Allah notices them. And in addition, and more than that will not do and what their chests can see. And no one else knows about it, except you, yet Allah knows about.
So what is the benefit of learning all of this, I learning that Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah is above his creation?
Well, the benefit of it really is to know first of all, among benefits, many benefits and and to know that Allah subhana wa, to Allah is not mixed with us on this earth.
And if this really cuts, any possibility for someone to say that we are divine,
right? Now we may say, Oh, this is crazier, who would think that right? But whether you're thinking about Muslims, or even non Muslims, they sometime conceive of ideas, where humanity becomes divine. So when they think about who is God? What do they think is to say about God, sometimes God is what this energy that flows on this earth.
Or that material being this earth, the water, everything here, that is also God, or God initially was light, and that light had spread into this creation. So every part of creation is God. Or that somehow we can unite with God and become one with God, because he had that divine
spark in you.
Right? That's a popular belief, whether you know it about it or not, it's a popular belief
that there is no duality between God and creation. Why do you think and one of the reasons why Rumi is so popular? You know, Mia, the poet, Sylvia, so why is he so popular? One of the reasons not only the one reason, one of the reasons that he's so popular is that he tries to erase that duality between creation and the Creator, then they can become one. That that's a very popular concept. And of course, I mean, when you hear it, let's say that you're not Muslim or Muslim, but you know, you don't know a lot. If you come in, and somebody tells you, you have the divine in you. Isn't that attractive? Yeah, you know, the divine spark is in you, you're connected to the divine, you're
connected to every other being, that's very attractive. I'm not gonna lie to you, it is a very attractive proposal. But it's not real.
Not Not everything attractive is real.
So that belief,
cuts that I ended by believing that Allah subhana wa Taala is distinct. He's not us. We're not him. He's not on this earth, but above all of his creation, beyond all of his creation.
And when you understand that, somehow the law there is no room then to believe that you are sort of part of that divine or that you can be absorbed into the divine No, that is clearly.
So that is one benefit of it.
And you will find that this belief of how the law is confirmed in the Quran, yet there are some Muslims or especially in the past. That's why he's beginning by affirming this relief, especially in the past, but still residue of that existed till the day in the books and the belief of some sets. And sometimes when you ask the Muslims, where is Allah? They say Allah is where? everywhere, everywhere, right? I mean, it's not it's a simple answer. This is what they run. This is what the law is everywhere.
Knowledge is everywhere. That's what it is.
What Amazon is saying, his knowledge is everywhere he knows everything but where is Alon? Oh you think to yourself, can I ask that question? Where is Allah? Is it Yes. Why? Because in Sahih Muslim right it says there's an incident
where a man he says he was upset he was he had a slave girl and he had she lost one of the sheep. He got upset with her. So he hit her and he said, I felt so guilty for doing that. And I wanted to free her. So I went to the Prophet I told him of a salami cinnamon I told him about all of this he says bring him so he brought her and he says the Prophet then says inside Muslim in a lot of ways a lot
she says this summer
right in the heights above there and in some narrations she points up by fishermen if you understand Arabic right this summer does not mean in the sky meaning the skies and is in this guy doesn't mean that it means on top of Allah the man
faces has some
meaning that I'm not worshipping this idol or that idol or this rock or that animal this human that Where is your Where is your God?
who am I he asked her or a pseudo law salon called Amina free her for she is a board Amina
so that you can ask why no law is the prophets of Allah Islam assets and so ask that in such a Muslim
and he accepted the answer but let's just sum up so it's clear. And then the other I mean complimentary some a Cinco de como la Do you feel secure that is the one who is above the heavens? Can you know cause viewers to sink beneath you that is in the Quran, Allah from Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah subhanaw taala rose above his throne, etc, etc, many evidence for that in the book of Allah Subhana Allah and the Sunnah of his prophets of Allah, how it was in them.
And also in the fifth of every human being when you make,
right? Where do you direct yourself?
Right? That's the fifth of every human being. Like if thinking is that the last panel data is everywhere, you don't make it to down here or below you right? Nobody does that with their provider doing the loss of data above so they see that your heart needs
you know how when you pray it pray to
your heart also when you're making drought needs a headline that is above that that direction. Also think of the profits of the lottery. We send them right in a mirage when he ascended
and he spoke to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is what it says in the Hadith, right? Why did he is sent to speak to Allah Subhana Allah Allah, if Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is not above the heavens. And when he wanted to change the Qibla, right, and the prophets, Allah silom was looking were upward and Alesis but not on Alibaba Chica sama, we're seeing you like looking at the sky, and he's waiting for something for Allah subhanho wa Taala to come for the public to change. Right? So they're all tells you that Allah Subhana Allah is above us. Right?
So the benefit of it is that it purifies or preserves our terrain. Allah is not the energy Allah is not this earth. Allah is not us, as distinct from us at the same time, he's very close to us, in terms of his knowledge, in terms of his power, in terms of his right is not distant at all. Because as the law says, For anybody boujee without a die, I am close and I answer your supplication whenever you're talking to Allah is very close to you. An additional benefit to that belief
is of course that it preserves Allah's majesty, right?
lost power, because typically also in our physical or anything that is honorable is elevated. Right? And the opposite is true. So Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is the highest of the high is the highest of the high. So he is the strongest and most powerful and most majestic of all.
I hope it move it or move we talked about that one for the difficulties.
After that, after talking about this, he's going to be talking about that.
he says Rahim Allah, I'll read it and then inshallah go back and explain what he's saying. And while he's saying what he's saying, he says For
me, when I say do analemma home, the home in hierin washer, live niccone and fusino Latina. What are you doing? In masa De Anza.
He says for Hulu, he says so creation
are doing or following what he already knows.
By Me, Luna besotted with me. That is
Allah subhanho wa Taala knows already what they're going to do and they're doing what he had destined and knows what they're going to do. And you know, wanna disobey me when we do an enema Hola, hola, hoomin hide in washer, meaning that they are doing what he had created them to do have good or evil.
They're doing what he destined
and created, whether they're doing good or doing evil This is what a lot destined, and this is what a lot created.
So if he does think that this is going to happen, this person is going to obey this oh person is going to disobey. They're doing that as a lot. Dustin and created Liam Lee coonelly and put him in a potty and
they cannot benefit themselves with any obedience.
Meaning unless Allah had ordained him, what are you doing? A lot of females see it. And we cannot avert or protect themselves from the maaseiah If Allah had destined it, right.
That is they cannot escape that this is what he's saying they cannot escape the destiny of a loss of Hannover, that whatever he said, Whatever he planned, this is the thing that is going to happen. Now, when you reading this, you may think to yourself, well, isn't he saying that we're compelled?
And we have no free choice? Right? Is this is why he's saying what he's saying? Obviously not. Why am I saying obviously not because he was an a member of a sinner, and they believe and a sinner is not that there's not that we are compelled. Why is he emphasizing it to this point?
Well, there's a reason. What's the reason?
there have risen early on in in the history of Islam, you know, in some of the Sahaba caught that
those who denied Allah destiny.
They're called al Qaeda, there's like this big crew of called the other end, don't remember the name, it doesn't really matter. What's more important is the belief
and can ignore all the Allahu anhu witness them. As people came to ask him that Omar, we have people who are claiming these things, what are they claiming? The first group of Alexandria claimed that Allah has no prior knowledge when things happen at all. He doesn't know about things until they happen.
He doesn't know about good does not know about Evil has not predestined anything.
Right? So as it is you, for instance, when something happens, then you only know about it. So as with Allah, only when that happens, he knows about it. Those are the early
they gone extinct.
Why did they? Why did they claim these things? Well, first of all, they weren't among the Sahaba. And they will not students of the Sahaba. But there are people who have taken from foreign sources, whether it's non Muslims, or non Muslim books, and they were debating with them. And they had this issue, they had this problem. What is this problem? How do I reconcile Allah's destiny? With a law justice?
How do I reconcile because, on the one hand, and this is by the way, I'm not discussing this only because it's historically relevant. But it's relevant even today. Because one of the problematic areas we have today is, right.
If somebody comes and tells you, how is it that Allah has destined this, at the same time, I'm free to do that? Is this not new? People have been struggling with this for a long time and it shallow try to offer the solution. But we're offering here one of the deviations, one of the deviation is that they wanted to say, you know, you know, they were asking how can we we can sell if Allah has destined everything, then we're obviously compelled, and that cannot be true. So what's the solution? Rather than they go back to the Quran and Sunnah and see what they have affirmed, they decided what we're what we're going to say is that Allah doesn't know anything.
Any gave people that freedom. And there's no end things until they happen. So they are responsible for it, meaning that Allah did not compel anyone. So you try to solve a problem.
But what you end up doing is what you're creating what
sort of a bigger problem, because you are negating a lot of knowledge altogether.
If a lot does not know how to do a lot create, if Allah does not know about your action, and whatever you're going to happen, how does he create so he likes creation and lacks knowledge? How is he How is he
how's he going, etcetera, etcetera.
So, they tried to run away from one problem the solve it in the wrong way and you create a bigger problem. So,
These were the early editing.
They didn't last. Because that's a statement that a lot does not know at all does not know particulars that no details that's not know anything until it happens is a statement of disbelief in the last panel with Alec contradicts the clear.
Then what came after, and this is what he's responding to here, what came after,
would be the second type of criteria that we talked about, I'll call them the intellectual material so that if you don't remember the Morteza and at least the title intellectual, would clarify what we mean. So the intellectual work tesira they said, No, there is destiny, but people create their own actions.
Right? people create their Allah does not create their actions, good or evil, Allah does not create their actions. That was another extreme.
People came by in response to one extreme, and another, another extreme, and that other extreme is saying that everybody's compelled, because they want it to preserve a lost power. Of course, Allah knows everything, of course, a lot distance, everything. But then they negated free choice. Many you don't have any free choice.
You do what you do, because Allah decided it. And you're just following that like what likely say like a leaf, right? And the wind is blowing with that leaf doesn't have any choice in where the wind takes it, does it?
The leaf right in the wind doesn't have any choice doesn't have any choices are the same thing for humanity. But that contradicts what
allows justice. If Allah had compelled you to do something, why would he punish you? And why would he reward you? Why is there heaven in hell.
So these were extreme beliefs. And so almost any here is responding to one of those extremes that say that a lot doesn't know things until they happen, or a lot less destiny is not inclusive of everything. And that allows creation is not inclusive of everything. So he's he's affirming here, once again, that everyone is doing what a lot already had known that they're going to do, and that they are doing, whether it's being allowed, disobeying Allah, whatever Allah has destined, so they cannot obey Allah unless he wants it, and they cannot disobey Allah and plus he wants it. They cannot escape Allah's destiny. Now the question here that we asked ourselves, so how do we then
reconcile that with free choice?
let's affirm certain things about about others, so that it's not confusing. First of all,
and Canada, as the scholars say,
is still Minnesota in Arizona. It's one of the secrets of a loss of Panama.
Meaning that you can ask questions.
And you can ask questions, and then you can ask questions. But then the more that you're asked what happens? The more you get
confused, and you don't reach an answer. Because there you have to reach a limit, a point where you will say, Allah knows best. Beyond this, I do not know. Because he has asked why give a reason. But why that you give a reason and then why that you'll say this is what Allah wanted. My mind Remember what we said in the first lecture, my mind cannot comprehend everything, and that cannot cover everything. So the further right Allah subhana wa Taala told us some parts about it, he didn't tell us everything.
And if you go back to the time of the Sahaba of the allow them and they had with them, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, meaning that they could ask him anything and everything. You see that their questions to him so a lot he was in a more limited,
they understand there is a limit to their comprehension, and to what they need to do.
So when they ask the prophets of Allah to send them once, what we're doing Oh prophet of Allah, is this something that is destined or something that is new? It is no, this is something that is destined. They asked him, shouldn't we then not rely on the destiny of Allah and not do anything?
He says no manual for kulu Maria Salima says no do because indeed everyone will be guided to what he was created for.
Men can Amina Elisa, yes, sorry, I'm really sad if you're the beat of the people of happiness. You will find yourself doing the actions of the people of happiness and if the of your of the people of misery you'll find yourself doing the actions of the people of misery. Meaning that don't rely on what Allah has destined because what you do not know if
you do not know it, you have no access to it.
What do you have access to
your actions right now?
Your actions right?
Now and without, you know too much philosophical speculation, you understand that you have a choice or not right now,
you understand and things that you're about to do that you have a choice, because you distinguish between things where you have a choice and things where you don't have a choice.
I'll give you an example.
Somebody got sick.
Okay, they couldn't stop and got sick. You understand? He could not stop this. Right? He couldn't stop it got sick, maybe a sickness beyond his control. He got sick, there is no nothing that he could have done to stop this thing. Right?
Somebody is sitting, not eating enough drinking and he's getting sick.
And you tell him eat and drink and he says no, Allah has destined that I'm not going to eat or drink. He think he's insane. Right? You understand the difference between the two someone who got sick,
you know, beyond his control and someone who is getting sick, because he or she they refuse to eat and drink, they he or she refused to take medicine.
You understand that there's a difference between the two. Someone who's saying you know, I'm gonna sit and rely on Allah's provisions I'm not going to work.
The money is going to come to me you understand that this is false. Someone who is either misunderstands
or sleazy this I'm just gonna sit here and wait for it to come to me, and the sun the best not true. So in matters related to the dounia we understand that Allah has destined we need to strive.
Though Allah has planned, we still need to work and we don't see any contradiction. Why don't we see any contradiction because every day we wake up, and we go to work. Every day we wake up and send our children to school every day we wake up and we study Why are you doing this? And you know, it's that every day everything is Dustin. Why?
Because in your heart you understand that there is no contradiction between them right?
the same thing is true when it comes to
except that there somebody is
right? I don't know inshallah. inshallah. Okay.
So, in religious matters, we understand that this is exactly the same thing
that Allah has destined and had planned. And at the same time, Allah has given us freedom of choice.
If you cannot comprehend it, there is no need for you to think about it too much. Because as we said, our intellect cannot cover all aspects of heaven. And a lot did not ask it. And as Prophet sallallahu wasallam, did not ask also or enquire in depth about that subject. But what they did is that they asked us to affirm certain beliefs about forgotten conduct. First of all, to help you understand it is that Allah knows everything,
and has created everything. This is a foundational belief, isn't it? Allah knows everything past, present and future, destined everything past, present and future and creates everything there is no other creator, except the last panel with that, that foundation. Second of all, is a lot just or not.
Right? And Allah is wise or not, Hakeem, right? Absolutely. This is what you have to affirm. So if Allah subhanaw taala is just would he punish someone that he had compelled to commit a mistake? Or a sin? Cannot? Would he be rewarding people that he had compelled to obey Him?
No. And he just compelled them had no chance, but to obey Allah and yes, he praises them takes them to Jenna compels others to disobey Him and He takes them to hellfire. And he doesn't do that. There is no injustice
in with a loss of Hannah with data. Once you understand that, once you affirm that, then you know you have other Bismillah beyond that there is nothing
beyond that are the whispers of the shavon. Beyond that is the shaitaan trying to make you doubt Allah subhana wa tada and stop you from worshipping Him. Because this is what he wants to tell you stop worshiping, and just engage in philosophical intellectual arguments until you disbelieve in everything and every one.
And you will live a last panel with that.
So a doctor, by the way, is made up of four levels or four elements, as some of the other Matt said, first of all, that Allah has knowledge of everything that Allah has, will, has will distinct to happen, has written this thing, and has created that thing. So first of all, is allas knowledge or for knowledge alone knows about all of this.
Second of all, Allah mushiya
His will, but he wants this to happen.
The third that Allah has commanded that all of this would be written in a lotion before all of that is written down.
And the last thing is that a law creates according to His will and knowledge. So everything that we see around us Allah knew about it or not. Yes, Allah willed it to be as it is or not. Yes. Is it written down in a local food or not? And who created it? Allah subhana wa, tada, this is about
and that's enough. You don't need to go beyond if you go beyond it. And you know, really based on the Quran and Sunnah you eventually will deviate into this extreme or that extreme, the extreme that denies all destiny, or the extreme that denies the justice of Allah Subhana Allah data and says, We're compelled to do what we have to do. Neither one of them is true, and neither one of them is religiously conducive to the worship of Allah Subhana Allah and believing in his power and Majesty's panel with that.
So this is Kaaba from him or him or him Allah. And
then he moves on to the angels talking about the angels of Allah.
And he says
it and rehydrating cannot be.
He said, he created creation, according to his rule,
according to what he desires.
And rehydrating cannot be without a need, without needing them.
So Allah created humanity, created the angels, the jinn, the heavens and the earth, not out of need.
He doesn't need them to provide for him subhana wa Tada. He doesn't need them to praise them. He doesn't need them to worship Him. He did not need them for anything, but it is they who need a loss of pan of water. They need him from everything for everything, and he does not need them for anything.
He affirms this, so that no one thinks that Allah Subhana Allah for whatever reason, needs his angels,
as he will say later about the angels of Allah subhanho wa Taala that there are angels who are crack carrying the throne of Allah.
But what does he need them to carry the throne of Allah?
There's a loss of Hannah dalla need his angels right? To do any of the things that he asked them to do?
does Allah need us to do any of the things on this earth? Isn't he capable soprano without doing all of these things? himself? Yes. So he did not do this did not create us, because he didn't needed us in any way. But this creation came out of Rama, right? That Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted, you know, to extend these to him I wanted to create humanity wanted to create the angels wanted to bless them, I wanted to honor them. So a lot wanted this llama to spread. So not out of need, but out of his father subhanho wa Taala
out of his generosity that he created, not out of need. And that's important also to keep in mind that in our worship, right, we are the ones who need a llama doesn't need anything from us, not our fasting not our salon or our
weather, right? What do we all believe? Or we all believe it does not add anything to allow take anything from Allah's majesty and power right, doesn't add anything. And that humbles us, that humbles us as humanity humbles me as an individual. I'm not adding anything to Allah doesn't get anything from my worship, but is it who gets everything?
And he says, Well, hello Pamela Gotti malleability,
and he says, when he created the angels all for his worship
and he made them naturally inclined to worship Him.
So, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, He says, created the angels for his for his worship.
Allah says above the above them on the llama Amato.
They do not disobey Allah whatever he commands them, and they do as they are commanded. So the angels of Allah do not disobey Allah right? humanity does but not angels of Allah, they do not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever he commands
because as he says they are naturally inclined to worship Allah subhana wa Tada.
Now, here's something interesting.
Do the angels have free will or not?
And for a lot
His time, right? Because I've heard that growing up and the Tata system, whatever you think the angels don't have free will
that like their machines, right? worshipping Allah Subhana? Wa. But again, if you remember what we said about avanca, right? No one deserves to be praised for actions that they are compelled to do.
Right? And we may praise the machine What a wonderful machine it doesn't break down or anything, right? But Allah praises the angels, you know, that they worship Allah subhanho wa Taala continuously, right?
Is that phrase merited if they are compelled?
No. So it means that it must mean that the angels do have free will.
They are free choice.
But they don't choose anything but the worship of Allah SubhanAllah.
And that's great.
But that's greater
than being compelled. Why do they not choose anything but the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala. First, no desires like humanity,
no shavon to whisper, like humanity, right. And they see a lot more of the majesty of our last panel data because they are closer to him.
So they see what we don't see and they don't have our distraction and weaknesses. So they worship Allah subhanaw taala diligently without stop, and they have this physical power to do it.
But they actually doing it out of free choice and well, right. And you know, and one of the things it tells you that because in that had even not going to go in detail about it, but what it says but a lot of panels, Allison's medical mode, danger of death to musala. He said on
Amazon alayhis salam will note the Angel of Death takes human form. He comes and tells Muslim here to take your soul. What is Musa do
hit him right he hits him and it damages his eye. So monocle mode goes back in that human form to a loss of power data and he says, you know you've sent me to a slave of yours, who doesn't want to die? And he says well, Ola kurama to La Casa de la he says if not for how honorable he is with you how much you love him. I would have been tough with him
till he had a choice or not. He says the answer if not the I could have done it. But I know that you love him. I didn't do right. So they have a choice. But they love Allah subhana wa tada and the honor a law this way the worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala repeatedly. So he says about them for me whom Allah,
Allah La she hamilo they are angels, or carrying the throne of Allah through a less power through a last hurrah, meaning that Allah doesn't need them to carry that humans need helpers, Allah does need helpers will tell you for the minimum how to actually use a behold and a group of them around the throne of Allah subhanho wa Taala, praising him and saying just to be held, well, we can do this soon and others, right, also praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and freeing him of any shortcoming. And this is what is so they are doing these of Allah subhanho wa Taala meaning they're raising him above any shortcoming. And with the handle the praise of our last panel to Allah
together. And he says was performing homebrew Solon, Isla de
la America, he says and he selected from among them, messengers to his messengers.
What does he mean by that? Who are the messengers to the messengers
like jabril Ali Salaam, to that prophets and messengers of Allah wa Salatu was salam, so messengers to the messenger, so gibreel was a messenger among the angels, he's the best of the angels of Allah. And he acted as a messenger to the messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala, receiving the revelation of Allah and taking it to the prophets. And he says, oh, Babu, the Bureau, Nellie, Emery and others, they take care of that affairs that a lot of our data wants them to take care of, like we talked about, medical note the angel of death, who takes people's souls, there are angels of the mountings
angels are green, angels of thunder, angels and the green angels will write your deeds left and right, angels who are always with you to protect you from harm.
So there are so many angels that Allah subhana wa tada has, some of them are in the heavens, and some of them are on this earth. Some of them as he said, are facing a loss of panel data, others have specific tasks, but there are so many of them and they are worshipping Allah subhanaw taala continuously and they do not disobey him whatever he commands them. And what are they
created, by the way, angels, light, white light in Sharla so they were created from light.
And in some of the children books by the way, I found that I was reviewing it and it says Allah created angels from divine light.
Right That's a mistake by the way, not divine light. Divine Light means God.
Divine is God. Right? So you have a lot created the angels zero when you read it and you think about it, you say, okay, Allah created angels from divine the divine is God. So if Allah created the angels from divine light means that they are to our divine. If you come from divine, your divine, know, he created them from light, right? And creatively.
Now, what's the benefit of No, this is one of the pillars of email to believe in the angels of Allah subhana wa tada and there are foods to this belief benefits to that belief. What are these fruits?
First of all, I mean, we take them as example, as models, right? That they, whatever Allah commands them, they do it they never disobey Allah. So they recognize a loss of power, Allah's majesty they love Allah subhana wa Tada. So when you hear about that, you feel that that should motivate you also right to do as they're doing. If they know Allah so well and they don't disobey Him, it means that I should know a lot more and also not disobey Him.
If they love Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, I should love Allah. If whatever Allah says, they do it. You also should be like an angel of Allah and whatever your law says you do, not stop question, speculate, rejects, take it, in part, reject the other part know what Allah says, then you do it. So that's one benefits of it. Another benefit is to appreciate our last panel data loves humanity, because he gave you these angels, some of them for you. Some for your protection, some for to bring your soul into your mother, or bring the soul of your child into your spouse. Some always with you to protect you from harm. Some with you to listen to your Koran when you read the Koran, some are
counting your husband.
So Allah gave all of these angels for you. So there is honor there. Right? How much last panel data loves you. And also there is embarrassment and shame if you do something wrong, and they're all next to you. Right? So you're not alone. No matter what happens if you think I'm alone, you're never alone. Not all these are lots of panel data watching, but also is watching. The angels are with you watching are those who write never leave you. But if you actually have angels with you who are protecting or you know, because you are pious and you start singing, they leave.
So they also benefit of understanding how your actions influence the angels around you and how that they're always with you.
And other benefits in sha Allah for it, but in general, I think we will start with the angels of Allah subhanho wa Taala
now just answer a couple of questions. inshallah. Yes, by the way, inshallah so next week, I will be out of town, so we will not have this class, unfortunately, I won't be able to come back in time. So we'll have it the week after, inshallah, after the time changes. So it'll be March 17. And it will be after
that, so be optimistic and sharp, right. So not next week, unfortunately. But the week after, and we'll be in Sharla.
So one question I had from last time, was about one statement that I mentioned last week about Babel society outselling Babel. estima. Babel
also mean Babel Esma. What does that mean? So that was the fat which is the door or the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala are talking about the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala is bigger than talking about the names of Allah subhana wa Tada. So what does that mean? So explain it again and give you an example. We said that the names of Allah subhana wa tada are specific to what we find in the Quran and Sunnah.
Specific, we cannot invent a name for Allah, I think of a name I'm going to make up a name for Allah. We said no, we cannot do this. So they have to be exactly there in the Quran and Sunnah. So if you think of it as a pool, okay, here are the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But then the attributes of Allah subhanho wa
Taala, you know, describing the last panel of data that is bigger.
The describe, you can describe the last panel with data with more qualities. But not all of these qualities qualified to be a name of a loss of Hannah with that. I'll give you a couple of examples in Sharla. So one of the sick that is not in the Quran, and sooner or later Muslims use it, that Allah is
module is existing true true allies This allows existing allies module it's not really a beneficial description right because there are other attributes that are better than that like the living that's even better but anyone so some people do use it now though this is acceptable I cannot put a URL to it and say Allah is no dude is the existing and say that this is a name for our last panel
so I can say Allah is mo dude right? But I cannot say that a lot is
why this is not a name that Allah subhana wa tada had given to himself.
So you do find some people sometimes they're called the abdulmajeed the slave of mo do a lot It is not a name of our last panel.
Now Allah subhanho wa Taala another example Allah subhana wa tada in the Quran and Sunnah tells you that he gets angry. Right? gets angry with people who disobeyed him right?
And he started to love him but he was angry with them adding multiple minima or something like that, that there's anger of Allah right? So Allah gets angry. So one of the attributes is that he gets angry. So he
is one of the names of our last panel data the angry
so you see the difference? Right? Why isn't it one of the names of Allah first of all that a lot did not call himself the angry. Second of all, it's not always a good quality. You don't have to think about why he's angry all the time.
So there's not a lot of rahimian or Amanda was merciful all the time. Rahim all the time.
For all the time forgiving all the time. But anger is only angry when there is a reason other than that is not right. So not every attribute qualifies to be a name of the last panel data, but every name of Allah has attributes in it. Okay, in shall
know, this is a question from previous previous lectures we had. So it says if
the minister allows them to speak at lectures as a starting point to encourage them? Well, I don't know about this one Sharla. But we can say that the question is that if there is a 14 year old
brother, who wants to become a doctor, I will domestic allow them to speak at lectures as a starting point to encourage them maybe insha Allah if you talk to the administration, whatever mistake that may be here or somewhere else, if they can do that, within the weekend school, they can do that in Sharla. So one arrangement or another inshallah can be in made for them. The parents made a mistake to other child how to correct it. So if you made a mistake, maybe raising your child or to your child how to correct that it depends on the mistake, obviously. So
try to ask a lot for help. First of all, ask Allah for forgiveness for that, repent from that mistake that you've done, and then try to fix it. If the child is old enough to understand what that mistake is, you talk to them, you need to be honest about it, I made a mistake. And if they're old enough, you know, I'm asking you to forgive me for that mistake. If they're not old enough to understand you compensate for it, but it depends on what that mistake is.
If you tell me what that mistake is, if it's possible, I'll be able to help you better inshallah, but in general, repentance with Allah asking Allah for forgiveness, and then actively trying to fix this mistake with the person involved. This is in sha Allah, do we have any questions? Yeah.
How come humans are better than them? Okay, inshallah. So it's not a matter of agreement between older older men, that humans are better than angels. So some of the others say and believe that angels are better than humans.
So how come humans are better than they are? It means that or if this is true, they're not better than them now, right now with all of their sense. But if they persevere, and they are patient, and they win against their temptations and inclinations, to do evil and against the shavon, and all the tests in this life, they've accomplished things that the angels could not accomplish, because the angel did not have that temptation. So when Allah Subhana, Allah to Allah takes these humans, purifies them from sin, and puts them in heaven, they will be better than the angels. So their obstacle for humanity is greater than the obstacle for the angels. The angels don't have that
obstacle. So both humanity and the angels may have free will but angels, it's easy for them to worship Allah, humanity. It's not. It'll be easy, but there's no worship in general in that sense, but humanity and when they are in heaven, they will have done it this way. They will be praised.
Allah subhanho wa Taala as if they are reading like they are reading. So that in a sense is worship of Allah subhana wa adalja but there is no effort in it. You understand there is no resistance that can stop them from praising Allah. So it's easy for the angels to worship Allah but not for humans, but if they overcome the weakness they become better than angels according to sound the
you have any other questions that come along, so not meeting next week inshallah, but the week after, inshallah
