Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Ruthie rahmatan lil al Amin say you didn't know Mohamed and voila early he was so happy Ultramarine and my bad. The Brothers and Sisters in Islam a Salam alaykum. Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh and welcome to this new episode, where we study the Beautiful Names of Allah the Almighty Zoa gel. Today we will attempt to study five names of Allah's beautiful names. The first two names share the same attribute, which is forgiveness, and forgiveness or a low fron.
It means to conceal and to hide and to protect. So when you conceal something, you have forgiven it. And Allah has malaria, which is the noun forgiveness is when Allah conceals these sins, and He pardons them with His grace and mercy
of Afar, is one of Allah's Beautiful Names.
Perpetual Forgiver he does that over and over again. Allah for is also the same meaning that Allah azza wa jal does it extensively for everyone, all the time. And it means that Allah azza wa jal is Allah far, the one who exposes what's beautiful and conceals and hides what is ugly and sinful in this life. And in the Hereafter, Allah azza wa jal would
subhanho wa Taala
make these sins go away. Now, when we come to look at these beautiful names, we find that Allah azza wa jal
has repeated the name Allah far five times in the Quran.
Among them is the well known Ira insurance you know, the call to steal or fear or robber come in who kind of afara and said ask forgiveness for of your Lord indeed he's ever a Perpetual Forgiver as for Allah for there are over 90 places in the Quran, where Allah names himself as Allah for among them is the well known IO in Nila far only mentor of our arm and our army Lasallian from Tada that Allah has forgiven forgiveness has to be accompanied by deeds has to be accompanies accompanied by
asking Allah for forgiveness by repenting by believing. And this is what this is says. But indeed I am the Perpetual Forgiver of whoever repents and believes and there's righteousness and then continues in guidance. What are the implications of these beautiful names? When we read them, when we call Allah with them and ask Him to forgive us our sins. So we say Allah for a fairly young afar, Ella fairly, and we have this firm, this firm belief in our hearts that only Allah forgives and conceals the sense which leads us to the third name today.
The name Allah foo.
And this beautiful name, the one who pardons is one of Allah's Beautiful Names and a fool has an extra edge over a look afar and Ella for
because a lot of foreign law for means the one who conceals and forgives sins, this does not mean he may not hold you accountable on the Day of Judgment, there is a possibility, they are still recorded in your record books, but he may not
punish you for and by the way, one of the meanings of a mellifera is to protect and this is why the helmet a warrior puts on his head that protection from the blows is called metal foil. So this protects his head from blows and it is driven from the same a
of origin. So what is the difference between forgiveness and pardon? pardoning is to eat haze.
Forgiveness is to conceal. It's still there in the records.
It is still documented. Where we're pardoning is when Allah azza wa jal totally erases it does not hold you to an account, and that Allah azza wa jal takes it out from the record books where the angels who register your sins would not even know about it.
And also, it can mean that Allah does not only erase it, rather Allah changes it into good deeds. And this is the ultimate ultimate of pardoning, of generosity of forgiveness. When not only Allah conceals it, nobody knows about it. Allah transforms it into good deeds. So you come on the day of judgment, and you see your record books, filled with good deeds and said, This is not mine. I've never done so many good deeds in my life, and then you will be told that Allah has pardoned you and transformed it into good deeds. Allah mentioned this in Surah Furqan when he spoke about three major heinous sins, one, associating others with Allah Sheikh to killing innocent souls without any
legitimate reason. Three, fornication.
Allah promised those who do any of these heinous things, that they will be heavily tormented in hellfire. But then he said, those for them who repent, their evil deeds will be replaced with good and ever is Allah forgiving and merciful. Imagine you come with 1000 sins, but because you repented, because you sought Allah's forgiveness, Allah pardoned you and exchange them into good deeds. And this is why Mother Aisha used to ask of the Prophet as Oh prophet of Allah. If I were to know when Leila to Adam is, and we know that this magnificent night, the Night of Decree is one of the last 10 nights of Ramadan. So from the 20th of Ramadan till the end, one of the nights must be Leila to
Qatar, and this
beautiful night working and doing good deeds is better than 1000 month
better than the deeds of 1000 months in one night. So she said What should I do? What should I say? And the Prophet said to her say, Allah Houma in NACA I for one, this is Allah's beautiful name, Allah for
Allah Houma in Nica I for one to hit bull alpha, and you will love pardoning five for a knee. So pardon me, forgive my sins can see them, ie raise them and change them into good deeds. A beautiful dua very short. You can repeat it all day long. You can repeat it out of the 10 nights of Ramadan, the whole year. Always ask Allah with his beautiful name. Hola. Hola. In Nikka foo. It is you who is L fo the one who pardons the one who
pardons people by guiding them by concealing their sins by instructing them to repent.
So pardon me.
And also connected with all word of the above the father for I feel, we also have a web and what is a web?
This is a form of exaggeration in Arabic, because the normal adjective would be
the one who repents. But here it's Whap the one who frequently the one who guides his servants to repent and accept it from them. And this is not related to humans who are repenting. It's related to the description of Allah azza wa jal in his name there
But he's the one. So what does the word mean?
The word means the one who frequently and so often repents over his servants. He accepts whoever comes to him, no matter how he has his sins are and Allah's repentance upon His servants are divided into two types.
The first type is to guide and to allow
his servants to repent.
And why would we say to guide and allow because if you look around your siblings, your cousins, your relatives, your neighbors, your colleagues, your friends, you will find that they are so indulged in sins, not that we are purified from sin, but they around us are so indulgent sin,
rarely you will find someone repenting. Why? Because Allah azza wa jal did not guide them did not invite them to repent. So they're negligent. They don't want to repent, so Allah doesn't guide them. Whenever a person has this burning flame in his heart, he's remorseful. He's regretful, he's sad because he had sinned, Allah who guide him.
But those who are negligent those who don't care, these are the people that Allah does not guide. So number one of the meaning of the web is the one who guides his servants to repent and facilitates the conditions of repentance, which you all know. And then we move on to the second meeting, which is after He guides them, after he directs them, after he encourages them to repent. Once they do that, number two, he accepts that repentance, forgives their sins, conceal their shortcomings and flaws, and
transforms these sins into good deeds. And Allah azza wa jal
is so happy when we repent.
That is beyond description. As in the Hadith of the Prophet Assam, Allah is more happier. Allah is happier, Allah is more happy than a man who lost his camel with its his food and drink in a desert and he thought that he's dead, a dead man. And all of a sudden he wakes up to find his Campbell, he grabs the harness and says, Oh Allah, I am your Lord, and you are my servant. He made the mistake due to extreme joy and jubilation and happiness.
The Prophet says Allah is more happy than this man. When, when a person repents to Allah, He guides us to repent, and he's happy when we do so.
What is the use of such a name? The use is that whenever you fall in a mistake or a sin, always come back to Allah and call him Yeah, to wa to valley or the one who repent upon His servants repent upon me. The director and the cameraman always bring my attention that I have to remove my face mask, and I intentionally put it because we are in a time that we have to be diligent, we have to be careful. We have to walk the talk. It's not easy to be a ramble. When you see people suffering, and we win when we see the laws are against us. So always be diligent, always be careful, wear your face mask whenever you are in public. And this is the message I'm intending to send to people that it doesn't
discredit you or makes you a coward, or makes you a lesser person to wear a mosque. It simply shows that you're a law abiding citizen, and you care for others even if you yourself are not convinced of it, but it's always best to be with the Jamar with the congregation with the unity of the ummah. Coming back to the last beautiful name that we have today.
And this name is Al Helene, and it translates to the forbearing
him is one of Allah's beautiful attributes.
And Allah loves his servants to have this attribute in them.
And by far, our Prophet alayhi wa sallam was the Most Forbearing human being ever
imagine the scenario. The prophet is walking with Anna Sydney Malik. He's the top
of the Muslim ummah. He's the top of all humanity. him some say he's the top of all Allah's creation, so he knows who he is.
And while walking with Anna's a nomad,
nobody knows him comes from behind him. And he grabs him from his cloak
and pulls him. And this cloak was made of harsh and hard wool. And he had nothing underneath it. No t shirt, nothing. So he pulls him harshly. And it makes like scars and burn traces on his shoulder and neck. Not only that, he impolitely says to the Prophet, I said, I'm all Mohammed give me from the money you have. Because you're not giving me from your own money. This is Allah's money. He calls him Mohammed. He shouts at him, he orders him.
What would you do?
Ah, as a chef, awesome. If somebody does this to me, I'm going to smack him in the face. Probably not the face because face hold on maybe in the stomach.
I will be outraged. Does he know who she's speaking to? Doesn't see see the age difference? Blah, blah, blah. The Prophet Isis Salam smiled, and ordered had ordered his companions to give him money.
Not a word of reprimand, no bad comment, not even frowning in his face. This is the forbearing that Allah wants us to be like. And when it comes to Allah azza wa jal. Imagine when Allah has the whole universe,
in his control, with one word, which is B, he can annihilate everything on it. It goes to dust. He can throw us all in hell. Yet, we find sinners we find
people who do shirk and associate him with others, we find people saying that he has a son.
And this is an insult to Allah, as in the Hadith, the son of Adam, insults me and falsify my promise. He insults me. Allah says, when he attributes a son to me, this is an insult. And he falsifies and says, I'm I'm lying, when he claims that I will not resurrect him after death.
So if you were Allah azza wa jal?
Wouldn't you annihilate those on the spot,
they do not constitute anything in your sovereign and kingdom. Yet because he is a highly the forbearing he gives them time, he sees this blatant ignorance, and this
mutiny, this sinful acts.
But because he's capable, see, if a ruler or a king or a president oppresses me wrongs,
wrong, do me things. So if he does these bad things to me,
I know I can defend myself. So I would say, I forgive him. I'll be patient and tolerant. This is not forbearing. forbearing is when you have the ability to execute.
And you don't.
And this is why the Prophet said in an authentic hadith or some whoever becomes angry, in can execute his anger into actions, yet he refrains from that and he suppresses his anger Allah Who will call him on the day of judgment in front of everybody and puts
cloaks and clothes, of Jannah upon him, until he is satisfied. So, in order to be forbearing, you have to suppress your anger when capable of executing it. And only Allah azza wa jal has this who does not take us with our sins on the spot. Rather, he delays US a month, a year 10 years so that we may ask him for forgiveness, repent to Him and to appreciate his blessings and favors upon us the forebay
Hearing as Imam said, he says interfere is the one who continues to give good blessings and favors to His servants despite their frequent sells of sins and their shortcomings so he forebears and he tolerates and he forgives in exchange for their sins and for the disobedient so that they might repent to Allah the Almighty
we move on to the questions without a break so that we would compensate some of the last time Insha Allah so we have two more from the UK

Sandman from Bangladesh
solo salam alaikum. Sheikh Abdullah
Oroville Sheikh hamdulillah
says My question is, can I you see videos and read books of Ahmed Musa Janesville? I have heard that he supports terrorist groups.
Okay, I think we've made it clear not to ask about individuals on live TV this is inappropriate. Either you're endorsing him or you're tarnishing his reputation and there is no use for the OMA at all to use such inappropriate questions sad man you do this again I'm gonna block you. So you know my twitter you know my email you know my website you can ask me their one to one but to come on public TV and ask questions about true horror about students of knowledge or even about Tom Dick or Harry This is an appropriate at all ASCII.
And we have Iman from the UAE
Salam Alikum Salah
Can you please tell me the difference between address and Jessa? Because when you translate into English the all translated Okay, I'll try but I don't promise you anything deep finally this is final question I did from Bangladesh. So I can check so Allah
so I used to know reading Fatiha is a pillar in SA but there's a Hanafi imam who says reading Fatiha and Salah is watching and he even who sing reading surah is furred. I'm going to ask him how reading surah is first he could Quran surah Muslim no Tip number seven divestment tutorial. Solomon Quran I will answer inshallah. Okay, j mod from the UK, we will answer the questions. I don't know how much time do we have?
It seems not a lot. We have like 10 minutes. So let's let the games begin. Time order from the UK says his parents ordered him to trim or cut his beard and he ignores them and he smiles. Is he doing anything sinful? Not at all. What are what they are asking you to do? Is sinful and if they get out
I agree and say Allah ordered you to obey us say yes and I'm obeying you, I'm being dutiful to you. My beard has nothing to do with your obedience might be it has to do with the obedience of Allah and Allah azza wa jal prohibited upon me to shave it or trim it. So remain to be dutiful and obedient and diplomatic unkind, but again, do not obey them. Taymor. manoosh from the UK she says, What's the ruling on rap music? The word music itself is totally prohibited whether it's struck with its bluegrass where whether it's jazz, whether it's rock, whether it's r&b, any type of music, classical music, bithoven Schakowsky, whatever, all haram why, because there are musical instruments. Why
because Allah said so. The hadith is crystal clear. The four schools of thought they all agree that it is prohibited. So whether rap or not, is haram. If you're asking about rapping without music, like some of the rap nasheed artists nowadays, I am hesitant to accept this when the brother he's with a beard, and he makes a nice poem. Yeah, he read it like a poem. You don't have to come down to the screen and do this and and act like crappers next thing you have is blink rings and rings and maybe golden or diamond teeth. This is not Islamic, we don't imitate the kafirs yes writing poetry is good in English or in any other language, no problem that as long as the content is nice, but the
music is haram Faison from India his father says about the good vision and to tell it to good people. He is asking me that he has seen chefs today's five six times in his dream what does that mean? It doesn't mean anything. It might mean that you will probably book for ombre and come and make ombre and pray behind yesterday's maybe or because you frequently listen to yesterday's and love his recitation and try to imitate him when you lead prayer in motherboard Asia. And people say mashallah you recite like him? This made your sub conscience generate such dreams and this is from the Sunnah, that your subconscious does generate dreams, as the Prophet said. As for some note from
Nigeria, he says one of the brothers eats dates in odd numbers, which is sunnah good, but then he moves on to eat fruit in odd numbers. This is an issue of dispute. Some scholars say that doing things in odd numbers is part of the Sunnah.
And this is not accurate. The only accurate thing is that to eat odd numbers when you go if I'm not mistaken, now I'm confused. So don't quote me on that, I have to research it back again to do it when breaking the fast and when you go to read in read Alfetta not in any other any incidents, to my knowledge, as Gemini themin said, but again I have to recheck Is it both or one of them? So in breaking your Iftar the dates should be in odd numbers and when going to Salah till eight before leaving your home you should eat dates in odd numbers and Allah knows best Muhammad turned to us. He says, Is it true that the people of Paradise will intercede to some of those who are in hellfire of
the Muslims? The answer is yes. There are different types of intercession on the Day of Judgment among them is the people of heavens of Paradise will intercede for some of their brethren who are still in hell that Allah azza wa jal would take them out and admit them to paradise and what half of the Quran, intercede to his wife kids and relatives. The hadith in this is not authentic, but we wish in Allah's generosity. Abby from Indonesia says I have a retail shop. How can I
sell people who are selling in drop shop? Shipping? Well for a retailer, here is no problem. Whether the person buying from you is a drop shipper or irregular buyer. You're selling the items you have that it belongs to you possess it. The issue is with the third party with the drop shipper who simply doesn't have the merchandise and he sells different merchandise as he does not possess her own.
Either takes the money or takes a half of it or a commitment then goes and buys it and ships
Sit to someone else this is what is prohibited
is held from the Philippines. How do we control anger? There is a number of video clips on my youtube and among them is to remember that anger is not something dislike in itself.
The consequences of anger is what is haram. So what you say, because of anger, what you act, according to your anger is what is haram. And we have to look whether your anger is selective, or all the time is it four wheel drive, or rear wheel drive, because some people anger only appears on their wives or children. But he does not expose or show his anger to a policeman, or to his boss at work, or to someone who's six, four from Brussels, and he's full of muscles, as they say, No, these guys are scary. They can they can punch back, but your wife and children can't. So such anger is not true anger. And if you watch my videos, inshallah you'll get the answer my fourth from Indonesia, he
says there is a practice in Indonesia, that they visit cemeteries and Ramadan. And likewise, in Arabia, there is a practice that they visit cemeteries on the eat some of them on Friday. All of these are innovations.
Connecting the visit to a particular time or a season makes it a read. And this is not permissible. Yes, it is recommended to go and visit whenever you have time, but not to allocate a particular event or time to visit them, thinking that they will be happy, et cetera. She had from Bangladesh, he says, Do Prophets and Messengers pray in their graves, the hadith of Musa clearly states that they do. And this type of prayer is not to increase in their good deeds, because the time of acting and performing worship is over. This is a form of gratitude on their behalf Sherry from India, he says You said in one of your posts, or Twitter answers, Twitter most likely that Islam was spread by
the sword and remove the s and the word. So he said we know that there is no compulsion in religion. What do you mean by Islam was spread by the sword. Islam was spread by the armies in the expeditions that expanded all over the world. The prophet sent his expeditions telling them, call them to Islam. If they respond, or Hamdulillah, they're your preference. If they refuse, tell them to pay the taxation, the jizya so that they remain in the country in their homes, living like normal, but under the ruling of Islam,
no oppression, if they refuse, then fight them.
Why fight them to conquer their land and to make this land and Islamic land. And then those who want to come in Islam they are more than welcome those who don't want to come into Islam. They're not compelled to come to Islam, but the land has to be conquered. So this is what is meant by the sword. No one was forced to accept Islam or be killed or executed ever.
But the country itself has to fall under the reign of the Muslim empire Eman. She says what's the difference between Azure firewall and Jaza? They're almost identical as your lab is the same Jessa can be rewarded for good deeds or punishment for sins. So this is the only difference but Azure and Philip is only for good deeds, a deed from Bangladesh. I heard someone say that Al Fatiha is mandatory but the surah is a forum this is totally bogus and wrong.
Al Fatiha is a difference of opinion among scholars whether for a follower for an Imam, or an individual praying, there is no difference of opinion that it is mandatory. It is a Rokan in every single regard for the Imam and for a person praying alone. The difference of opinion is with the third category which is a follower I'm praying behind any meme. So they differed. Some say it's rockin a pillar. Some say it is not a pillar like the Hanafi school of thought. Don't pray pray it, don't read it even in silent tracker, don't read it. And this is wrong. And some took the middle path which is the Maliki madhhab and supported by Shaykh UL Islam even Taymiyah where he wrote a
small booklet called Imam Bihac mill karate
Culford Imam and he concluded that the same similar lead to Malik Muhammad which is it is mandatory A must a pillar to read for the follower in silent trackers so when the imam is reading silently it's a must. But when he's reciting loudly then it becomes recommended if you recited to hamdulillah if you don't recite it and skipped it intentionally there is nothing on you. If nila, this is all the time we have until we meet Same time tomorrow. I'll leave you here Manila was salam aleikum wa rahmatullah Matala he wabarakatu
