00:00:00--> 00:00:18

Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome to the 99 names This is Amata shoukry here and I got my man Billa Han Hey, and we are going straight into some names today. sha Allah the first actually we're doing two names we're supposed to do this with another set of names but

00:00:19--> 00:01:03

this is a bad animal so we're burying animals away okay and the bad and the Holocaust burial mozzarella hola smell Houston exactly these three names all follow each other but we already did a Heineken another video you can check it out in this playlist here. And if you're wondering where that's the the versus of sort of hush, hush yet sort of, sort of that has that has a sequence of 15 Names of Allah right after each other. Okay. And so it's really really unique in that sense. 15 go ahead canto. So who Allahu la de la ilaha illa who is or lastly verses by the way if you want to look them up on the Moodle lady, what she had was that's not a name. So just keep going. Maybe what

00:01:03--> 00:01:32

Shahada who are Nana Rahim. Good. Hola, hola, de la ilaha illa who al Malik, el Quddus, a Salaam and moving on Mohammed Aziz. A jabber? elbow Taka bear Subhana light. I'm not usually good. Who alone Holly called Barry al-musawi. La Hola. smale husna u sub behala home FSM wati wa, wa hola Z's will hacking 16 nips. Yes. Excellent. Beautiful. I'm the last of 16 names a lot.

00:01:33--> 00:01:36

listed out very, very, very

00:01:37--> 00:02:17

uniquely, there's no other place in the Koran that lists out names like that. And so a lot of the names that we've been talking to, we've simply been you know, every name we have to prove whereas the surname of Allah, how do we know that this is in fact, on with al al is your you know, greenest light that you will get that it's in the Quran with the elephant. And so this name of allah Subhana, Allah, Allah, Allah, Berry and masala, they all come together at the end of sort of the hasher and they all follow each other in sequence. And, you know, the scholars, they looked at these names, and they said, you know, if they'll try to find some reason for the sequence, and so for example, when

00:02:17--> 00:02:52

and medic and producer ceramill movement, okay? That's also the sequence of sources and sources of passion. And we didn't talk about that in the video, but some scholars looked at that and they said, well, what's the sequence? What's the secret to the secret? So he said and medicalize the kink? Yeah, I'll produce means the one who's free from imperfection. And so Allah kingship is a kingship that is free from imperfection. It is free from oppression, okay? As salam As salam also means that I'm the one who's free from defects. Okay, and so Allah Subhana Allah is the one who is free from imperfection, and he's free from defects. And producers set up men and women is the grantor of

00:02:52--> 00:03:29

security. The grantor of secure at the moment, I thought is the one who is fulfilling of promises. That's one of the meanings to okay. But m m. m is seek security as in like, trust. No security is in safety. Right, like so like safety in the sense that when you have a safety security box, like a safety deposit box, okay, right, is the idea that it's the same concept of you giving someone to hold on to something and you trust that they'll keep it safe? Yes, that's true. Okay, very good.

00:03:31--> 00:04:06

But also like a man, that's a man, right? Um, is just he's the one who provides safety, safety and security. He's the one that when I'm afraid, lady, I'm assuming you're in what manner human health, the one RND not only will will he keep your possessions safe, but he will keep you safe. He keeps you safe. He grants you security and safety. Okay. And so Allah Subhana Allah these four names together, you know, giving you a picture of a loss, kingship, and Holocaust burial no American producer Salaam and mommy medical produces sellable movement and medical produce

00:04:07--> 00:04:43

is safe, he's far removed from all infections, set out a similar meaning, the idea that he's also the source of all peace is the source of all peace and free from any sort of blemish also, okay, and if you notice, usually when people become a president or a king, the first thing that ends up happening is people accused them of corruption and people accused them of you know, all sorts of things. And so Allah Subhana data's kingship is free from all of that in a moment, and that moment is the grantor of security. Okay, and then you keep going and more Haman and Mohammed is the one who looks after you. Okay. And the one who's, who's a reference point, okay, jump BOD is the one who

00:04:43--> 00:05:00

compels everyone and he's the one who fixes that which is broken. Okay. Okay, I got you. You know, what's interesting is how people like one of the discussions that has been in play within within the American Civil Liberties area, is the idea is that

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

The apparent this

00:05:04--> 00:05:27

conflict between the idea of having safety and security and freedom. Yeah. Right. It's like if, because a lot of times people are willing to let go of their rights and their freedoms for more safety and security. Yeah, but at the same time people are like, Well, okay, fine, you're trying to save, be safe and secure, but we're also losing our privacy, we're losing our thing but with Allah.

00:05:28--> 00:05:51

Like, obviously, there's no privacy with Allah. Right? But at the same time, Allah is one who will always keep your private affairs private. Yes. And at the same time, you have the freedom to do whatever you want to do. I'll be it. Whatever decisions you make, you're going to be held accountable. Benjamin Franklin famously said those who would give up their freedom for security deserve neither. And

00:05:52--> 00:05:54

I found that to be a very powerful statement

00:05:57--> 00:05:59

the The beautiful thing with regards to

00:06:01--> 00:06:28

this is that when you're studying the names of Allah subhanaw taala it really creates in a person a trust Yeah, and I almost want to not I was gonna say defiance but not defines a strength Okay, is that that person really becomes someone incredibly powerful in and of themselves a strength and honorable strength with dignity. Ah, that's why I was hoping that we were going to do it as these today because

00:06:29--> 00:07:09

really, you know, we covered disease before but this would be one of those names that I'd love to just revisit because there's so why don't we do it? Let's make that the next one. Okay, that's fine. Just some additional like bonus points about the disease because a loss of habitat is the one who gives it is an is a means honor, dignity, these types of things. And you know, just based on what's happening in the world right now, I kind of want to revisit it because truly allies the source of is and those who seek it other than allies and disease. Now we come to these three names which are paired together and high local variables over and they'll bury in the muscle with our descriptions

00:07:09--> 00:07:28

of at Haleakala is a high economies that's the creator we talked about that and the light is a HELOC. a HELOC is the perpetual creator and he lost a pound of data isn't bad, not bad. It has the same meaning and bad It means hunt okay creation and that berry also means the one who separates

00:07:29--> 00:07:35

and that's why in Arabic When you distance yourself from something it's called Baba.

00:07:36--> 00:07:47

When you separate yourself from something you distance yourself from something you've probably heard in theology this concept of Allah when Bara Yeah, right. Yeah. Association and but the like.

00:07:49--> 00:08:09

Oh, and now Alberto bin Malik. Malik. Okay, that's the same comes from that concept. Oh, come from the concept of one who distinguishes from what is good and what is bad. I did it in Mallik let me just zoom in here. Is the awesome Sahabi No, no, don't I know who arrived in America?

00:08:10--> 00:08:40

Is the older brother of nscp nomada Yes, he's the one who would write letters to his army saying do not give him a 3d over because though out of his bravery and courage to lead the entire army then in the last episode we talked about the death of zaidan hip hop Yeah. In the battle against Santa Monica who live nomadic when was a llama led his army into the orchard yeah the garden of death and he closed it yeah all right. nomadic was the one who said to me really he said throw me over the wall. Throw me over though.

00:08:42--> 00:08:58

And they said what are you talking about that suicide and he's like they're not gonna be expecting it. Yeah. So just throw me catapult them over the wall lands and managed open the door Exactly. So and he survives Of course Mashallah.

00:09:02--> 00:09:05

So, yes, it is coming from that same concept. But what

00:09:06--> 00:09:09

Bora or okay.

00:09:11--> 00:09:40

Has this concept of separation. Okay. So separation How is a bar or bar and very different from the idea of beer? completely separate? Okay. They're different routes now. So okay, anytime you go back to a different three letter route, now everything changes, okay. It's like veteran but are two different because it has a hums at the end. So I'll bet he has a Hamza No, sorry. It doesn't have a Hamza at the end, does it?

00:09:42--> 00:09:59

Yes, it does. It has a Hamza. Okay. And so because it has the humps at the end, it's a different word. Okay. Bear is bad. If you look up the route, okay. So Bharara versus Barbara. So Barbara versus Bharara No, no butter with

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

turas vs. But

00:10:02--> 00:10:09

with the hams at the end, and so it goes back to a different trilateral route. Okay. And so it's a reset button. It's a completely different field now.

00:10:10--> 00:10:14

two completely different words. unrelated, unrelated. Okay. So but

00:10:16--> 00:10:38

has these two concepts Now, the last just shows you the importance of knowing what the word is in the language. Yeah, you have to go back to the, I see what you're saying. Yeah. Because when you think about when you hear it, just like, Oh, these are related. Yeah. But then you realize now that there's, there's a different word. So that that's important. Yep, absolutely.

00:10:39--> 00:10:43

So a loss of Hannah dad is so bad. Now, the

00:10:44--> 00:11:21

easiest way to understand a lot of being a bad it is that he is not only the one who creates, but he's the one who creates for a particular purpose for a distinguishing purpose. And so we have this connotation of distinguishment. Because it's separation, it's one is different from the other. And so Allah subhanaw taala creates for a distinguishing purpose. Not everything is created for the same purpose. Not everything is created equal. Not everything is created equal. We have different characteristics, personalities were different species. And so I'll highlight is the one who creates for a particular purpose, and that's why creation is called and Berry. Yeah. And you read that in

00:11:21--> 00:12:00

Salton Bay and at the end of our last panel data sets in a Lydian armor I'm going to study how to let it go home Hyrule Berry. Yeah, they are the best of creation, because creation is created for a particular purpose. Okay. And so this sounds like the marketer and brander and an aspiring kind of designer in me is loving this neck. Beautiful. And you're gonna love the next one which is a muscle which is the one who fashions right? Allah is the one who fashions so Allah Subhana Allah is the one who so he's the Creator, he creates with a distinguishing purpose. And within that distinguishing purpose he fashion something beautifully. Exactly.

00:12:01--> 00:12:04

Okay. He fashions

00:12:05--> 00:12:40

Allah Subhana Dionysus, so all all all fellow creatives out there. This is for you follow these steps? Yeah. Number one is create number two is have a particular purpose behind it. Okay. And then and then within that purpose, fashion and design it beautiful. Like it just makes so much sense. Now I'm realizing some of the best products that really brandable products are those that okay, you create the product, but then you give that product a particular niche and purpose. And then you make it the best of that in fashion and design it so that you have to distinguish yourself in the market. Yeah.

00:12:42--> 00:13:07

And then you make it look good. Yeah, yeah. Very good. And so Allah Subhana Allah is the one who says, Yeah, you have an insane amount of luck. I've got a bigger Kadeem, I believe this is sort of a thought. He says a lady halaqa kosaka de la cfy, Salatin, Masha Allah Kava in any fashion that he wanted, he made you so last pants out of me jus like you owe me like, yeah, I should put you together. And so

00:13:09--> 00:13:40

Allah Subhana Allah is animal soul where he's the one who fashions everything. So really quickly, what then do we how do we interact with these two names? A loss of data being bad, and I lost a pound of data being almost over. Now is it fair to say elbows so weird? is appropriately not to just fashion but the idea of making it look good? making it look presentable? Right. Absolutely. And the reason why I would say that is because

00:13:42--> 00:13:46

Allah subhanho data is a Jamil and he loves beauty.

00:13:47--> 00:14:02

And one of the beautiful things really when a person is looking at a loss of status creation, is you can see indication of a lobbying on Jimmy and just the way that he made this world so beautiful. Yeah. I mean, you know, you're a superhero guy.

00:14:04--> 00:14:20

I'm a superhero guy. Yeah, you're a superhero guy. When you watch these movies have like some lore on the superhero. When you look at like the Lord have some sort of cosmic region and reverse is like an evil Lord, what does his world look like? It's messed up. It's always messed up like Dormammu. Yeah, exactly.

00:14:21--> 00:14:32

It's gonna be like, or Celeron volcanoes erupting and just absolutely horrible conditions, and they don't look at where we live. And it's just beautiful. Right?

00:14:33--> 00:14:40

Everything is big environment of the individual is indicative of what kind of characteristic that they have.

00:14:42--> 00:14:59

of the Lord. Yeah, yes. it's indicative of a lush planet that has love for beauty. Everything is beautiful, the different climates no matter how, you know, even though they might be not necessarily your matter of taste the people who live there love it. This is totally kind of really off topic, but I recently rewashed The Lord of the Rings

00:15:00--> 00:15:38

And one thing that I was thinking about was because for those of you who have seen it saddleman the other wizard that goes bad, right beats up Gandalf and then raises an army of orcs in orakei that attack Helm's Deep but loses and then the ends see all the trees that were killed and they go and they raid several months. City Aizen guard and destroy it And the answer to that ants ants which are these tree Okay. Okay. Like Groot, you know, Groot from guardians of galaxy. That was in guardians. No, but I remember the battle for him sleep I remember the the trees. Yeah, so these trees, they come out. But the thing that I found very interesting was eyes and guard were were subtle one used

00:15:38--> 00:16:25

to be was once a beautiful place. And then once he flipped, and he joined subtle one, his entire environment turned into like this. Kind of like an emulated image of what Mordor looks like, because murder more doors were sour on us. Okay, there were volcanoes. And so because he's cutting down all the trees and making fire and raising armies and creating orcs, what would have been really interesting is to see the story of Solomon, and how he transitions from being this good guy who loves nature and wants to take care of it to becoming this guy who goes for power. And so you see, I mean, it plays out in all of these different fantasies where it's basically, you know, it's

00:16:25--> 00:16:55

representative of the characteristic of who's responsible and loss of Hannah data, look at how beautiful luck created the earth. And the last round of data not only created the earth, but he created the universe. And he said that of the reasons why he created the stars is for the purpose of beauty. It is a little hard to say in a semi daneben wasabia we have beautified the center of this world, which is the universe all of it. Yeah, be masabi with lanterns, and it's done for the purpose of Xena. It's funny how the how I call that lanterns really misbehaves. masabi

00:16:57--> 00:17:01

is it because the idea of a star that's floating in space, it's kind of like hanging?

00:17:04--> 00:17:14

Because it is hanging? I don't like it's in space. Right? Like a lantern hangs right. It's not sitting on it. Hmm. Is that why it's called an idea? Okay.

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

Or is it because it's burning?

00:17:18--> 00:17:20

It's a form of fire? I would say that's probably why. Okay.

00:17:22--> 00:17:26

That seems more appropriate hanging because I mean, it's hanging in.

00:17:27--> 00:17:40

But you hang it on something as opposed to these things. Right? But like, okay, yeah. So Allah knows best. But, exactly. So returning back to some of the fruits of

00:17:43--> 00:17:58

it is that you recognize and that you realize that Allah subhanaw taala has distinguished us. And he has distinguished us for a purpose. And he's created us for a purpose, and that is to worship Him.

00:17:59--> 00:18:00

Same for us.

00:18:04--> 00:18:46

And also, of course, we have the very, very powerful tradition of not creating idols because Allah Subhana dynamism was always right allies, the one who fashions and so the prophets, I said, not forbade the making of sculptures. And so we avoid that. And the prophets of the latest in him said that of the people who are punished the most on the Day of Judgment are people who used to be idle makers, and they will be commanded to breathe souls into the idols that they created. Now, what about the idea of that? Like, it's one thing to make something with the intention of being worshipped and being fashion for that purpose, even if it's not for that even? Okay, and that's

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

something beautiful

00:18:48--> 00:19:31

that you see in Islamic history. Yeah, that. I mean, you see how prominent you'll see it all over the place in these European in Greek culture. Yeah. And Roman culture. Yeah. And even though Islam, early Muslims, yeah, they were the ones who then took that Greek thought and translate it for the rest of the world. They never absorbed that art because that art was prohibited. Yeah. And so what we did, even though it was an art that was incredibly popular in that area, obviously, it was detailed, it was like very, it was mastered. Yeah, we didn't take that we didn't absorb that. And what we did was we found another art, yeah, that we valued. And that was appropriate with our

00:19:31--> 00:19:59

values. And we mastered that, and that was calligraphy and architecture and all of these types of things. Right. And that just becomes a relevant example for the art itself had a purpose, the calligraphy, I mean, just the very, so sculptures, they are and this is one of the challenges with art. Is that okay? is art for the sake of art. It doesn't have an actual purpose except for it to look good. Whereas one thing that you'll notice is that a lot of the

00:20:00--> 00:20:29

Lot of the things that were the Muslims have created and this would be my hypothesis. Right? I may be wrong, but I would assume that a lot of the art that Muslims created as a result of the sciences that came about was, they all they all had a purpose behind the creation of that thing. So architecture, okay, the design of a building was created such that okay, could maybe project a voice allow for air to flow in and look good at the same time?

00:20:30--> 00:21:15

Or the idea calligraphy? Right, it's, it's the purpose of it, not only is to beautify, but it's something that serves as a reminder, because if you think about it, a lot of the calligraphy is of the Quran, right? And, or on is referred to as El keytab. And one of the things about the, of what Kitab is, is something that's important enough to be etched into stone. Okay, that is one of the meanings of it. Right. Okay. And so, traditionally, throughout history, what has been etched into stone laws, and buildings, Roman architecture, they'll have a lot of things that are etched into the stone, because to signify the importance of that, but a lot of the Roman etchings of laws, they

00:21:15--> 00:22:01

weren't as aesthetically beautiful as their sculptures. But yet the calligraphy is something that stands out on its own. And yet it is because it is put on it also serves as law and get that was law too. But the fact that they all put it up there, okay. But the fact is that there's a purpose and utility behind I think beauty is a purpose in and of itself. Okay. And I think a lot of art. I mean, there's a lot of reasons for art, one of my favorite things that I keep telling you, and I say all the time is that art is a representative of culture, and an art makes culture felt, okay, you know, art makes culture felt. What that means is that, you know, you understand you understand, with your

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

mind, concepts,

00:22:05--> 00:22:23

history, all of these types of things. Yeah, art is what touches, information touches here, right? And art touches here, okay? It's a motion. It's the emotion of a culture. Okay, so a culture, a culture without art. does not touch your heart. A culture without art does not touch your heart that rhymes. I didn't even I was

00:22:24--> 00:22:57

like, Okay, I wasn't even talking about a culture without art. It doesn't. It doesn't touch your heart. And that's part of you know, we're now entering into a discussion about the modern Muslim community. Yeah, but the modern Muslim community in America, that's all doctors and engineers. Yeah. There'll be very wealthy and affluent, but they don't have a voice. Yeah. And they don't affect, you know, they can't spread beyond their. And, you know, that's, that's, you know, this discussion that we had probably last year or two years ago, when the Roman hottub series came out and Ramadan. Yeah. And everybody was like, you know, up in arms about it, and some people who obviously supported and

00:22:57--> 00:23:16

some people weren't because the fact that they're representing a companion and the idea is that art of film is going to touch more people's heart about I'm going to hook up Yeah, than any book or I think the closest thing we ever had in in the history of Muslims post Rasul Allah says, Allah

00:23:17--> 00:23:21

is shadow puppet theater by the Southeast Asian Muslims.

00:23:23--> 00:23:26

The closest thing to what the idea of communicating

00:23:27--> 00:24:03

like this, because shadow they invented shadow puppet theater to communicate the stories of the prophets. Okay, so here's the thing. Yeah. I did not even know what shadow puppet theater was until maybe a year or two ago. And when I looked at that, I said, Wow, that's incredible. Yeah, that's something that you would think Muslims would adopt and master. Hmm, not knowing that what you're saying is that we invented it. Yeah. But the whole idea because we have such a conflict with art. Yeah, the discussion about whether music is hot on music is hot off having that discussion for 2030 years, not realizing or 1000 years or however and having it not realizing that the Muslims when they

00:24:03--> 00:24:41

looked at sculpting, they said, Okay, that's how long we're going to find our own way. Yeah, we're going to Necessity is the mother of invention, right? finding our own arts, creating our own arts is something that we should be actively doing, and not just trying to bang our heads over whether this thing is permissible or not. Yeah. And so I was I'm very surprised to hear that we invented shadow puppets theater, but I'm not. Actually I'm not surprised that we invented it. I am surprised, but I'm not surprised logically thinking about it. Right? Like if you think about like, okay, makes sense. It makes sense. Right? But like the fact that it's so well known throughout the world, that

00:24:41--> 00:24:50

that form of storytelling, it's just like, Uh huh, okay. And the thing is the first time it caught my attention was when they were showcasing it in Adam's world. anybody remembers that world?

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

Did I remember the DVDs? I never watched it though. No, but they had they had sections in it where they would showcase shadow puppet theater. Okay. And then when I further

00:25:00--> 00:25:00

looked into,

00:25:02--> 00:25:19

just because part of it was going to film school, unofficially, you know, and then by unofficial I mean, I went to the classes for free without credit, take the exams I did. But like, I'd never I wouldn't submit them. Because, like, they're gonna be like, okay, so why aren't you registered?

00:25:22--> 00:25:36

But most of the classes, their workshop actually, right? Like, some of them might be exams. But the idea that you like you your passing grade is the fact that you do like you make a film, right? Or you do this or you do that as opposed to answer a bunch of questions on a piece of paper.

00:25:37--> 00:25:39

But back to the whole thing is that

00:25:40--> 00:25:53

Yeah, like, Necessity is the mother of invention. And culture without art doesn't touch your heart. That's right. And with that, we end up with solar and battery solar lights and hamadryad of Cyprus. Interesting.
