And them in a sense that a man means the Most Merciful.
And this is why the word man in Arabic is on the same
rhyme of a hug ban and hug the ban means full of rage and anger. So Raha man also means full of mercy and compassion.
And it is stronger than a Rahim which means the bestower of Mercy The Giver of Mercy. And both names are stemmed from the beautiful attribute of Allah azza wa jal, which is mercy Rama and this is
one of the attributes that are
strongly found in the Quran and the Sunnah, and all people have a solution. Now will Gemma agree that Allah azza wa jal has this attribute in him, unlike
the deviant sects and cults who do not approve of Allah's being
described as such a beautiful attribute on the account that it means weakness and softness, and Allah cannot be like this. And this shows you how
deviant they are when they compare Allah azza wa jal to His servants. We never compare Allah's beautiful attributes to any other than Him. Because there is nothing like onto him. Nothing similar to him subhanaw taala so if we say that Allah is all living, Ever Living, we cannot deny this and say yeah, but all those who live must die. This is not possible with Allah. This is why so many deviant sects and cults
went astray when they follow their whims and desires, rather than following the Sharia, rather, rather than following the law of Allah azza wa jal, rather than following the way of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and his great companions. So Allah is merciful.
Allah azza wa jal is described with mercy. So what's the difference between our rock man and our Raheem and by the way, this is a lot of
people make the same mistake. Do we say our rock man or Al Rahman? In Arabic language, the identification article Al
is divided into two types Shem sia and armeria.
A shrimps if you notice we don't say l shrimps. Rather we delete the L
and we merge it with the following letter letter with emphasis on it. So we do not say l shrimps rather we say shrimps
with comma, we say el amor, the El is present and noticeable. So this is how they call it Al Sham sia or El Cap Maria so that you can know when to pronounce the L and when to merge it
in our Rockman. It is a sham sia we don't say Al Rahman Al Rahim, we say R Rahman r Rahim. We merge it and we put the emphasis on the R.
So what is the difference between these two beautiful names? Some say that our man means that
he's the one with the vast, great
mercy that encompasses all creatures in this universe. While Rahim is specific for the believers, evidence, they say Allah says in the Quran, Allah Allahu Allah Arshi stowa, the Most Merciful who is above the throne established or rose over his throne. What does that mean? It means that the throne is the highest thing.
In this universe. It's the greatest creation of Allah azza wa jal and Allah described
himself to be a rough man who was established over the throne or who rose over the Throne, which means that his mercy covers all this universe and
in the other name, which is our Rahim Allah says, What can I build me Nina Rahim and ever is he to the believers merciful. So this is specific and limited to the believers.
This is what the majority of scholars say. But
this is countered by another iron where Allah says in Allah have been nasty Lara awful Rahim indeed Allah is to the people kind and merciful Rahim. So not only limited to the believers, but to all how to combine between these two opinions. This is one opinion
a ramen is for all.
And the Rahim is only for the believers. The second opinion is the most authentic, which was chosen by a number of scholars like even if they mean even they'll claim etcetera that are wrong man is a description of Allah azza wa jal
and what we call Siffert on that here, it is an attribute that describes the Essence of Allah Himself, while r Rahim describes his actions subhanho wa Taala so it is related to the creations while Outre man it is related to the Creator Himself subhanho wa taala. Allah's Mercy would require us to talk endlessly for many, many episodes. And this is a luxury we cannot afford. Allah's mercy when sought after, you will always get it because this is the essence of Allah azza wa jal attributes that he is most Merciful.
Ibrahim peace be upon him found it when he was thrown in the inferior knew in the fire they built to kill him. Use of peace be upon him found it when he was left in an abandoned well when he was young. And when he was thrown unjustly in jail for a number of years due to his chest city. It's my alien His Mother, please be upon them, found it in the wilderness in the desert where there is no plant and no water.
You and us peace be upon him, found it in the belly of the whale that swallowed him.
Musa peace be upon him found it as a child when his mother threw him in the river.
And he found it in the mansion and palace of Pharaoh when he grew up under the eyes of Pharaoh.
The youth in the cave found Allah's mercy in the cave, which they could not find then their palaces and homes. And the Prophet alayhi salatu salam found the same mercy when he was with his companion in the cave, afraid of being caught by those who were pursuing them.
The name of Rahman Rahim is widely spread in the Quran, and the Sunnah, it is sufficient for us to contemplate on these names, when we recite the Fatiha when we acknowledge Alhamdulillah Hara Bill al Amin of Rama, near Rahim, when we say these beautiful names and call upon Allah azza wa jal, we feel what they mean now, so that we seek His mercy whenever it is possible to do so.
The third name we are to discuss today insha Allah is also a name found in the Quran
and in the Sunnah.
So, the name Al Malik, which means the King,
the sovereign, the ruler
It is found in the Quran and the Sunnah in three forms, Al Malik
al Malik, Al Malik. All of these three are names of Allah azza wa jal with a slight difference. So, the medic
We find that in Surah, Al Hashem is 59 a Surah 59 verse 23, who hola hola de la ilaha illa who al Malik al ko dos SLM l movement and the rest. So the first one is Al Malik and Al Malik, we find it in Surah Ali Imran chapter three verse 26. oluwo Allah Allah Houma Malik al Mulki total milkman, Tasha what? 10 Zero Smolka min min Tasha.
As for Al Malik, it came only once in the Quran in surah el amor chapter 54 Verse 5455. In Alma taka in Ephesians two one female or idea so they are in their Malik in Mahkota did so Malik is one of Allah azza wa jal Beautiful Names. What is the difference?
Scholars say that, and Malik, like ramen, it's a description of the Essence of Allah azza wa jal. It's the description of Allah Himself.
Where al Malik is a description of Allah's actions and giving away al Malik is a combination of the two. And this is the choice of Imam Ashoka, Annie.
May Allah have mercy on his soul. Now, when we come to this beautiful name and Melek
we will find that there are a number of things that needs contemplating. For example, when we recite Surah An NAS which I did every single day on our own will be Rob Bell Falco.
This is Surah Al Philip, what comes afterwards, all our will be robbing us. Listen, Rob, and NAS THE LORD OF THE PEOPLE medicae nas, the king of the people, Isla he NAS,
Allah, the Lord of the people, the God of the people.
Three Beautiful Names Rob Malik Illa.
Now what is mind blowing is that you're seeking in three of Allah's Beautiful Names seeking refuge from shaytan.
And if you look at these attributes, you will find that he is the Lord. Truly in he is the king truly in he is the God truly, he subhanho wa Taala
the rob the Lord that nurtures them, He is the Lord and the master. He is the capable He is the Creator. He is the giver of image. He is the old living, the self sustaining, the knowledgeable the All Hearing the all seeing. He is the Lord, the one who gives life and takes it. And then when you go to the Melek Melaka NASS, you will find that he's the one who gives orders and prohibits things. He's the one who honors and humiliates. He's the one who uplifts people and puts them down. He is the one who facilitates things to His servants as they wish.
And when you go to Isla hiddenness, you will find that all beautiful names and attributes are related to this name. So he's the only one worthy of being worshipped these three magnificent names and three majestic meanings people
go by without noticing it. And this is why we have to address that the owner of sovereignty, Malik al Mulk Subhana wa Tada is Allah azza wa jal. He has all beautiful names and attributes of perfection that no one can ever claim. If you compare Allah azza wa jal has sovereignty with others. If you compare Allah's kinship, kinship with others, you will find that people's kingship
is reduced drastically and would run off when they spend because they don't possess anything while Allah has reign and Allah has sovereignty and Allah's wealth is not reduced by a single thing.
You will find that servants of Allah one day will
lose all their wealth, their power and their authority either by death, or by illness, or someone snatches their kingship away from them. While Allah azza wa jal is Ever Living, never dies, and his reign will never perish.
Allah azza wa jal is, in essence, a king, a ruler, a master, a lord, while servants of God, servants of Allah, need someone to hand them such authority to make them kings, and usually such kings back people's allegiance through money or through intimidation, and through their power.
The only one who gives and takes such kingship is Allah azza wa jal. He's the only one who has such
sovereignty and he's the owner of such sovereignty. And if we contemplate when we recite the Fatiha when saying, Maliki owe me, Dean, the sovereign Owner of the Day of Judgment, Will no one ever claims that he's an owner. So by default, he is the sovereign owner of everything that is on earth before the day of judgment. If we managed to understand and contemplate about upon these beautiful names of Allah azza wa jal, our prayers would definitely have a difference. We have a short break, stay tuned, inshallah. We'll be right back.
Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. Today I'm going to talk about the book interactions of the greatest leader, Abu Huraira. May Allah be pleased with him said the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, no one's wealth helped me as much as the wealth of Abu Bakr helped me, after which I went back and began to weep and say, and is my life and wealth for anything besides You, O Messenger of Allah. This narration shows the level of etiquette and humbleness that Abubaker may Allah be pleased with him had in the presence of the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, for he likened himself to a slave of the Prophet of allah sallallahu it he was sending them by
saying that his wealth was only for the prophets of Allah salAllahu alayhi wa salam, as well as his soul and self. This comes as no surprise for the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has more right on the believers than themselves. He may Allah be pleased with him, spent his wealth in the Cause of Allah. And he consoled the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, through his own self. So the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam recognized that for him, and said, in order to build his stature, and to remind the OMA of his virtues, no one's wealth helped me as much as the wealth of Abu Bakr helped me among the benefits of this narration, it is important to keep
good manners and humbleness in the presence of the Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thanking someone who has bestowed some favor on you, as well as supplicating for them is part of having good manners reported by Al Bukhari reported by a Tirmidhi, and even manager Alberni ruled it authentic in his book sahih al German, the explanation of a Sindhi on the book of Ibn merger and a tayseer Bashar Al German Asahi Are

But then sometimes some people come and tell us that look, I wouldn't be that May Allah guide them but then they say look, the prophets his marriage to Khadija Khadija saw him and then they say that oh look, there are lots of Hadith for the Prophet SAW Islam was with almost lame so sure can you just shed some light here inshallah.

A cinematic come chef awesome
Rahmatullah chef yeah, here.
I was, when one day I was sitting in a corner where there was half shade half sun, and my teacher told me I can't sit there and when I asked why he said because that tripod spot and It's haram to sit in that place. Please elaborate on that. Well in sha Allah
Muhammad from the UK I don't know.
Is it the Hemet from the UK?
Salam o Allah Kosha I can start Allah
I've called you a while back but in a situation I was in with the I don't know if you remember with regarding the waterproof cream that I wasn't able to take off. So I was told to detain me now
I have an opinion different people saying to me like pharmacy saying to the waterproof, it's not waterproof and the water company to your skin. But then the senior doctor said that is waterproof and the water doesn't penetrate your skin. Now I'm confused like what what do I do? Do I perform table Oh,
okay. I will answer inshallah.
I think we will stop here and try to answer whatever questions we have. sad man from Bangladesh is asking about Chick fil A beer and met Holly, which is very, very inappropriate to do. It is impolite. It is inappropriate for someone to ask someone like me on live television about a well renowned known chef, whether we agree with what he says or not, it is inappropriate, it is out of etiquette, manner ethics. Where is the respect of scholars when you come and ask a question like this. So this is what I always tell people be.
I wouldn't use the word yet may be polite. Be polite, be wise in the questions you ask. Don't ask a share and say to him, share so and so says something and you say against it. What's the ruling on that? Share? When I say mean, may Allah have mercy on his soul used to be furious when someone asks him like this and he says if you ask someone else, why come and ask me? And if you know who Shabbir is? Why do you come and ask people like me? He's a well renowned scholar, he has his contribution he was praised by Chefman basment, Damien Chazelle, Barney, and also he has his own flaws and shortcomings like everybody else. So it is inappropriate totally to ask such a question. But
unfortunately, there are people with illnesses in their hearts that they frequently try to hit few birds with one stone. So if they can score a point here and score a point there, tarnish the reputation of this one, or have that one label this person of being his be or this person of being Moto G or being Hawaii or Boeing, et cetera. They like to play such a dirty filthy game which is totally inappropriate for a Muslim who does not have a hidden agenda who does not play politics like many people do, may Allah protect us. So head from Malaysia has a confusion between free mixing and some what the layman say Aki, if you gonna give your ear to every time they can hairy, they're gonna
confuse you. And instead of learning Quran and Sunnah, you will end up looking in the sources and the origin and how to counter attack their allegations. This is not what Allah created us for. We know the ruling, free mixing is prohibited This is a given. Now when it comes to allegations like the one you have thrown, Khadija may Allah be pleased with her. The prophet is awesome and Hadiya got
mattered before Islam by approximately 15 years, so you're going to hold him or her accountable for something that was not revealed to the Prophet Assam Islam was not there yet. Don't Don't we have any minds to think of? firstly, secondly, show me the proof that she went on to see the profit and to mix with them. All of this is nonsense. He used to work for her. And they were mediators who would tell him to do what she instructed them to tell him not that they were free mixing or sitting alone for long hours, etc. All of these are not This is nonsense. As for I'm so lame, I'm so lame. The mother of Anna Sydney Malik. May Allah be pleased with her even hedger said this and he
countered attack all of these allegations by saying I'm sulayem and I'm haram. They are sisters, and their only brother haram googlemail Han, may Allah be pleased with who was martyred.
They were uncles of the Prophet as sub su through suckling. So they were Muharram to the Prophet Assam. This is where the Prophet used to spend afternoons, napping or having a siesta in the house of homeschooling. And she used to collect the sweat coming from his head salAllahu alayhi wasallam all of this is well known. So when you listen to doubters, who cast doubts, try to confuse you. If you give them an ear, you lose your faith. Not because your faith is fragile, because your knowledge is fragile, you don't have knowledge at all. Therefore, focus are key to listening only to those who are trusted, whom you will learn Quran and Sunnah from and get you closer to Allah don't go factory
shopping here and there listening to such doubts I will have says if I pray behind a Hanafi Imam, what should I do pray exactly like he does. He follows a trusted school of thought and to the best of his knowledge, this is the right thing to do. So you follow what he does, if he does connote before record, do it if he raises his hands, do it. If he prays Witter like my rib, which we are not supposed to do no problem in doing that insha Allah ta from India says
he would like to know how many Iraq has determined my daddy and obey him to calm
Lee lead the prayers in tarawih because we know that Roma may Allah be pleased with him, gathered all the Muslims to pray behind these two Imams. This is an issue of dispute, depending on how authenticates the Hadith whether they prayed 23 records are the prayed 11 and there is no point in going into such dispute. Whatever you choose to do, 11 is good. 23 is good. 51 is good. Whatever you you want to pray, the sky's the limit. The Prophet never limited it to 11 Don't be confused know where that the Prophet came and say, do not pray more than 11 Yes, the Prophet did pray 11 records, but he did it limited. The Prophet only performed Hajj once in his life, but he didn't limit it. So
no one can come and say no, no, I'll pray I'll offer one Hajj that said because the Prophet Prophet Assam offered one hashtag if it was a sunnah to be.
To get hold on to the Prophet would have hinted when the man said How should I pray night prayer the Prophet said to to end if you feel Fajr then give our offer one raka have Witter. He never told him to but do not exceed 11. And Allah knows best. Nor from Nigeria. How should we greet the parents, some people say that if they were lying down, we cannot sit we have to do it standing up. All of these things are cultural. It has nothing to do with Islam. As long as you show your respect, this is sufficient. Don't do anything that is haram, such as squatting or bowing or prostrating, et cetera. This is haram. But at the same time, it's up to the customs in the customs that you greet
your parents while standing up. No problem in doing it. As for the boss when he comes in, or the ruler or whatever, and people stand up. This is again, according to the custom, but the prohibition is in the heart of the person walking in, for example.
I walk in a room where there are people sitting down. I say Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah they say they consider and no one
stance. If I feel agitated, or I feel humiliated, then this is a major sin that may put me in hell. Because the Prophet has some said whoever likes people to stand up when they see when they see him than he should assume his seat and hellfire. This is a sign of arrogance. So this is not permissible for me. Now, if I see while sitting down someone I haven't seen for a while and I stand up for him, to greet him to embrace Him. There is nothing wrong in that. However, it's again, according to the customs, some countries don't know the Sunnah. So if you don't stand up to the one coming in, that would be an insult. So you stand just to avoid problems. But if he knows the Sunnah, and you know
that he knows the Sunnah, no, you don't stand up. He comes to you, you shake hands whilst sitting down. There is no problem in that. And Allah knows best Mohammed from the US. Do we have to recite Tajweed? When we memorize the Quran? The answer is no. Touch weed is a beautiful science, that beautifies your recitation. So when you recite in Nephi, hall this summer, it will all the work to fill lelee When
the sisters wheat, but if I recited enough, in Africa, somehow it will only work the leveleleven not. The words are clear is Arabic. It's audible. It's understood and comprehended. There is nothing wrong in that. Would it be a plus to learn to read? Yes, but it is not mandatory, your prayer is valid, your memorization is valid, I would highly suggest that you memorize the Quran with Tajweed. Because if you fail to do this, and later on few years down the line, you try to pick up to do it, it's going to be difficult to teach an old dog new tricks, as they say,
take more from the UK. He says if I were to sleep after fajr, should I recite the ADKAR of bedtime? If you slept at night, and you read surah Al molk and the car and you wiped your body with the three colts, et cetera. And you woke up before Fajr you prayed Fudger and went back to sleep you don't have to repeat that. But if you did not sleep the whole night, and you prayed Fudger and you went to bed now you have to read it Refat says that he has a problem with OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder. And a lot of the Muslims who start to practice who start to learn about the religion shaytaan attacks them through OCD, those who are negligent who don't know, where are the Qibla errs,
who don't know what hosel is, he doesn't even care to bother them. He just focuses on throwing desires and lusts and sins on them. So whoever starts to practice gets these whispers gets these intrusive thoughts and gets these whispers regarding purity. So they perform Walsall five times. Islam is a religion of simplicity.
It's a religion that is good for a rocket scientist, and for a shepherd.
So it is not something complicated, the way you're doing it is not part of Islam. Taking hosel is to just simply cover your whole body in water, turning the water in your mouth and sniffing up your nostrils and blowing up blowing it up. Of course, with the left hand.
The issue is that people when they don't have knowledge, they start thinking about the details. And as they say, the devil is in the details. So they say okay, what about the area underneath my nails? What about
this or that?
All of this is not mentioned. Nobody says ever in widow or in muscle that you have to go under your nails and wash it and clean it and what counts is what's on the surface. Some people have old skin. So they say share, should we peel it off and maybe this would cause some wounds in order for the water to reach underneath who says that the water has to reach underneath? It's only their whims and desires. If they were to follow Sharia they would not have had any problems. Yeah, hear
from the US he says I was sitting once and I was half in the shade and half in the sun.
So my teacher told
We'll meet that I shouldn't do that. When I asked for the reason he said, because this is where shaitan sits. So he is asking me, Can you elaborate? Yeah, I can easily elaborate. This is what the Prophet told the Saudi salatu salam, there are so many things yeah here
that we believe without understanding. Because this is part of our religion. Allah described us in the beginning of Surah Al Baqarah, That we believe in the unseen.
So if I were to tell you that a here is a mined gold, you said way, I can see anything, you will not believe me. But when Allah tells us that there are angels around us, there are Jinn around us. There is Heaven and Hell with so many things in them, there is torment in the grave, we say we believe.
People say, believing what are you crazy? Can you see anything? No, but I can believe and relate. Because I believe in the Quran, I believe in Muhammad Ali Hassan of our messenger and I believe in the existence of Allah. So anything else is by default. Therefore, when we wake up, we sniff water upon ostlers nostrils three times and blow it out. Why? The prophet tells us because Satan, or the devil sleeps over our nostrils. Did you see that? No, but you believe it and do it. Those who oversleep and not pray Fajr on time, Satan urinate in their ears? Have you felt the urine so no, I haven't seen Satan to be to feel his urine. Likewise, when you wear one pair of shoes, and walk
barefoot with the other foot, this is the way that shaytan walks. I haven't seen the shaytaan but the Prophet told me this and I believe in it. This is the dividing line between believers and disbelievers. So we believe when the prophet tells us do not sit in the middle of the shade where half of you is in shade and the other is the sun because this is where shaitan sits. We say Sameer now we're Aparna we hear and adhere and obey. Because this is what the Prophet told us and Allah knows best finally, Muhammad from the UK. He says I am confused. Well, my friend this makes two of us. How would I know? If the pharmacist tell it tell you tells you that this is not waterproof?
While the doctor tells you it is waterproof and it will prevent water from reaching the skin? Who am I to know I'm not a pharmacist, I'm not a physician. This is something that you have to do your due diligence and to be safe rather than sorry, make sure that the water reaches the skin if you feel it does not reach the skin. Then you have to perform TM for the areas that was not reached by the water and Allah azza wa jal knows best. This is all the time we have and until we meet tomorrow, same time I leave you feeling Manila was Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
room will be with
Samuel Johnson can we
