In this 54th episode of the series titled 99 names of Allah, Ammara Alshukry talks about the name of Allah – Arraqeeb Asshaeed Almuhaymin
All right, ladies, gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome back to or Welcome to an episode of the nine nine Names of Allah. I'm your host, Fidel Han. And I'm here with Ahmed shoukry. Yes, Mr. Joker. I'm not sure.
How are you doing Bilal? I'm doing wonderful now that we've had lunches and food in our stomach. And when I look at that camera, the light that's above it seems like a big ball. Nice, like, but then when I look at the light, I get blinded. Excellent. How about you? Perfect. I mean, I look at them so I'm okay. I'm like their kid is like don't don't look at the light. I'm like, wait, why not? You're probably staring at the sun a lot.
I've always wanted to stare at the sun during the solar eclipse, but they didn't let me go outside.
So let's get into the names. Yes. What are we doing? So today we're going to do a combination of names that are all carry some shared meanings and the first is a peep. Okay? The second one is a Shaheed okay. And the third is and more Haman, Haman. So
the word is on the shared meanings is the the notion of being watched over, washed over Okay, watched over.
So, what now we're looking at as Shaheed when somebody is Shaheed Yeah, they said that he's a martyr, yes. Okay, but here you're saying he's someone who is watched over a lot comes from showerhead, okay, Shahada Shahada, which means to testify, to bear witness to okay. And so this person is bear bearing witness, okay to the truth. So the term martyr is not appropriate. No, it's appropriate because it's so it's a martyr. That's what it is. Okay. But the martyr, what does that martyr doing that martyr is bearing witness to the truth at the highest level? Okay. He's bearing witnesses. Okay. They're bearing witnesses the truth with their life. Yeah. Okay.
Makes sense. Okay. So another tip is, so what all of the if this was a Venn diagram,
and all of these circles, would they fit perfectly within the same circle?
I don't know what that means. What do you mean, they would fit perfectly? So with a Venn diagram, you basically have, let's say each name, and parts of the left parts of it that are shared, right, so in this case, I'll have the shared notion of watching over Okay. Got it. But what are the differences then? That's what we're going to talk about. So.
Firstly, under upkeep, so spelling it out, it's a lot off yet that upkeep in English, if you're going to spell it out, just look at the title of this video, are aq EB or QIV?
At raqib is the name of Allah subhanaw taala. So where do we find that being a name of Allah, we find it in salt and matita verse 117, where a lush pan of tada quotes, etc, et cetera, where Allah has a conversation with an ISA, that's actually going to take place on the Day of Judgment. Okay, but Allah says, when a law said, Oh, he said, Did you tell the people to take you and your mother is God's besides a law? Do people take Mary is God, the mother of God? She's divine. She's definitely worshipped. Oh, I never even looked at like that. Yeah, so
the idea here is did you because Illa where's this conversation taking place? That sort of thing? Neither, okay, on the day of judgment, okay. And so it's verse 116 117. And so the, the idea here is a law by the way, yeah, the law has anything that's worshipped. Okay. Anything that's worship does any law. Okay. And so, so Pharaoh wearos in Allah, even if you've never thought it was an ala, ala license is in the law. He says in the law, okay. Because if people worship them, what does worship mean? It means diverting the rights of Allah subhanho wa, taala to that individual, okay, then that person is an ILA.
And so the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
or a loss of habitat loss, etc Did you tell the people to take me and my mother as a your mother as the last other than Allah and then si de Salam will say no. So hanoch it's not proper for me to say no, it would not have been appropriate for me to say what I didn't have the right to if I had said it, you would have known it
you know, it is in myself and I do not know what is in yourself in the anti lamb loop you are the Knower of the unseen and then he says I did not tell them except what you told me to tell them which is to worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord. And I was a witness over them as long as I was amongst them, okay, so when you cause me to die, you became a Rottweiler him You became attractive when you caused me to die. Yeah, for that matter of faith any okay? Our faith anyone? what that means? Death. Okay. The question then becomes the discussion is what type of death Did he say experience? Hmm? Did he experience death a physical death, or did he just really a complete death? Or is this a metaphor
or for sleep? or some sort of
of ascension. Yeah, some sort of presence. Right. I mean, he definitely was ascended. Yeah. But did he die or not?
But here is is that I'm saying that he died for that matter of faith and he Yeah, okay, when you cause me to die
you became a rocky Valley. Okay, you became out of the cave. So we have an Elif lamb narrative. So it's the name of a loss of habitat. I'm sure you became okay by name. So what does it mean? Rob is the one who who watches over and looks after Morocco, Morocco is Seward. Okay, is that what would that be inappropriate or so explained to me steward. So let's just say that there's a, there's a governor or a king of a land. Yeah. And he needs to go and meet another ruler. But someone else is going to be watching over that kingdom. Okay for him while he's gone. Yeah. That person is not the king. They're simply taking care of it for the king. Okay. Right. Allah is the King.
Okay, but so he's the king who watches over. Okay. And that goes back to what we were talking about when when we're talking about the differences between the last kingship and everyone else's kingship, is that a loss of conocidas kingship is a kingship that does not allow for any ignorance or any, you know, lack of information or knowledge or anything like that. Okay. And so he is an emetic, and he is a thief. So I like that you brought up the stewards, because this is traditionally in humanity. This is a different role. Yeah, but Allah subhanaw taala is the King. And Rocky is the king and steward. He's the king and yeah, the one who knows everything. And in fact, as it said, I
must says, I was a witness over them while I was alive. Yeah, when I died, you were basically the only witness. Okay? You were the only witness. And so, maraca is basically preservation and stewardship. You're right, it is alasa that you watch over something. Yeah, you're always watching it. Yes. preserve it. Yes. You're responsible for it. That Yes, it's like it's like somebody it's
what Alfred is to Bruce Wayne. Looking after? Yeah. So this is this is this concept of Morocco. This is a loss of Hannah Diana is a rocky he's the one who watches over everything and so when you believe that Eliza tape okay. And you believe that Allah Subhana Allah is the witness over everything because the continuation of the verse where he said he said um he says, will clean tidy him shahida modern defeat for the motto of faith and he called the antelope to a Montana cliche in Shaheed he says I was a witness over them as long as I was alive as long as I was amongst them, but once you cost me to pass away you because you are a tape over them and you are over all things a
witness and so you see the what is the word that he uses a witness sheet? Also he also calls him a sheet Yeah, okay, you are a sheet. So Shahid is the one who witnesses over and so the province as it is set up is you know, you see these two concepts coming into play Yeah, rotate and share heat. And so I raqib is in some of the manifestations of both of these names is to really appreciate the fruits is to recognize that a watch upon a Tata sees you all the time and it's not just you know,
it's not just the person who for example, is at work, okay. And when it's time to pray, they pray. And then when it's
they get a customer they lie to their customer and they steal and then time for also comes in, they pray, the next customer comes in, they lie and they steal that's not Morocco have a lifespan of data because of a person. They're not willing to do the responsibility not fulfilling the name of that okay, as if you knew that Allah subhana wa Tada. Truly, just like he sees you in your prayer he sees you in your transactions. These names are Latif, Al Shaheed Elmo, Haman, a semi elbow, see, all of these should create an A person, an awareness of a lot, okay, that there's nothing there's nowhere there's no action that I can do that is so small or insignificant, that Allah subhanho wa Taala is
now going to be aware of it or that he's not going to hold me accountable for it. And I become someone who's present
of the Presence of Allah but I am aware of the presence of a lot, okay. And so that's, that's a lucky ask for a Shaheed.
It's pretty much the similar concept which is to recognize a loss of habitat as presence over you. As for animal Haman, Haman has a slightly different connotation and the connotation of animal Haman is not just the one who looks over you, but also the one who is the
the judge over you.
So he watches over you but he's watching with the keen eye of justice, no meaning in the sense that
Haman is the one who is an authority. Okay? And so for example Allah subhanaw taala he calls the call on
Sunday Can you maybe need a minute kitabi one more Haman and it okay. He says the Koran is Muslim, it is giving. So Mohammed would overlap with Malik
and medic yeah or and Malik Malik Okay How so? Because let me just explain do with authority right let me just explain the how the Quran is Mr. Heyman so the Quran Allah describes the Quran he says I'm so different Mr. beeney to him in a minute kitabi is testifying to the truthfulness of the books that came before. Okay, okay. And it is a Mohammed over it. It is a judge over it. What that means is that the hold on as the final revelation, it bears witness to the truth that that is in that exists in the previous revelation. Okay, but the final judge over those previous books is okay, and so the whole line is a more Haman over it and judges that now it is obsolete.
Note that the judge the judge,
last panel, dad is basically judging or the Quran judges, yeah, in three ways. If it is something that is in the previous book that the Quran affirms, then we affirm it. And if it's something that is um, categorically rejected by the Quran, then we reject it, okay? And if it's something that the whole line stays silent about when we say silent about it, one thought, though, always came to mind is when we talk about something that is rejected in the Quran rejects it. Now part of the rejection could be because of the alteration that might have been done to it. Yes, right. Could it also be that it might have been loved back then, but now it is abrogated, and that is why we rejected, but
then we wouldn't reject it. We would affirm that it was law then. Yeah, like the prostration of use of family to him. Okay. So this was a type of prostration that was completely permissible, okay. It was the subject of respect, okay, they had two sentences, they had this image of the Buddha, and the frustration of respect, okay. And so the prostration of respect
existed up until the time of the province of Atlantis and I'm not in their culture, but in the Christian and so when my the medieval, went to a sham, he came back, and he saw what they were doing to their priests. And so he came back and he prostrate in front of us will last lesson, okay. The Prophet said to my father, what are you doing? And he said, I saw that they prostrate to their priests, and I thought that you were more worthy of that. So the prophet SAW said that forbade him from doing that. And we as oma were forbidden from doing that, but so practices Yeah, that might have because then the the, the norm is that the shutter of those before us, continues on? Yeah, the
laws are as long as nothing changes. Okay. And so if it does change, yeah, the whole line in the sand know what take precedence. Okay. Alcohol might have been permissible for those before, okay.
not permissible for us. Now, the way that we fasted and the way that they fasted was different, okay. They used to if they fell asleep, they would have during a thought time, they would have to immediately continue fasting from whenever they woke up.
So for say, for example, you break your fast amount of time. Yeah, you take a quick nap, obviously, for them, if you fell asleep, you'd have to continue fasting, your fast start from wherever you wake up.
For us on fast rise, the sunset exam, their fasting begin starts when you wake up. Exactly. So if you made a thought ate too much knocked out, that's it. That's your last meal. That's your last meal. Okay, okay. And so
the Orion is Mr. Heyman as the
forerunners in authority over that, which came before and so the idea here of a lifespan of data being analyzed on it looks over Allah Subhana. Allah is the authority over all of us, a lot of annotators that are a thief, he's the one who watches us and watches over us. So there's two aspects here. One is a lot of watching you, and that should create in us some sort of, you know, vigilance and cautiousness and all of that, but also watching over you and that should create a new some sort of comfort and trust. What's it okay.
We talked about vigilance versus deliberate deliberateness. Is there a difference? Yeah, number one, with deliberateness that you think about the reason why you do things. And that's why you'll find many of the setup. You'll find amazing statements from them about not doing acts of goodness, just because they couldn't figure out their intention for it. Oh, they'll be like, I'm not just going to do anything for no reason. Okay. And so they would think about their intentions just like we think about our actions. Yeah. So now we're deliberate about their absolutely okay, because they realize that I mean, a lot is going to know my intention. I might as well know my intention. Right? Okay. I
need to figure that out. Okay. So that's deliberate
And then you have vigilance. vigilance is you being cautious of a loss of $100
you know, avoiding since avoiding falling into that which will put you in a position of punishment. Okay? So vigilance has to do with protecting oneself. So from a loss, whereas deliberateness has to do with the proactive action as to why you're doing it. Exactly. Got it. Okay. So, what's our takeaway in regards to the takeaway is to be cautious of Allah subhanaw taala, okay to trust a lot to recognize that he sees you all the time. Okay. And so the takeaways are, I think two faults, number one, is to
to be cautious of him that he sees you doing that which he doesn't command you to do, or he is prohibited you from doing rather be vigilant, and that's vigilance. Number two is trust and and comfort. No matter how forgotten you seem to be, no matter if you're in the belly of a whale, a loss of pan Oh to Allah is still Shaheed over you Allah still sees you. A loss still was watching over you and a loss of Bannatyne it can bring you out of the belly of any Well, just like he brought us if you unassign a center from the three darkness is the darkness of the night and the darkness of the ocean and the darkness of the whale. Okay, okay, cool, guys. Sorry, Microsoft Catherine.
