generous and a column the most generous. So what are they are where they they stem from from? Well
column in Arabic is generosity, but it also refers to honor nobleness
precious things, and this is why we call precious stones as ajar al Kereama. Because they're honored and priceless by themselves. So when we come to the name, Al Karim, Allah azza wa jal is Al Karim. Part of his generosity is that he does not only give to those whom he loves, He gives to those whom he loves. And to those whom He does not love.
Part of his generosity is that he may give people what they want, and what they need, even though they would use it to this obey Him.
Yet he doesn't
care about this Azzawajal because he is in essence, Al Karim. And this is why Allah says in the Quran, yeah. Are you an internal matter of your vehicle? Carry all mankind? What has deceived you, concerning your Lord, the generous, what cheated you what made you deceived, be deceived.
So I'll carry means the bountiful the Generous One, abundant and good, the one who causes and makes easy every good and who bestows generously without account, the one so generous that he even bestows favors upon those who reject His favors, and then use them as means of to disobey Him.
And some scholars say Al Karim is the beneficial one who gives without account to people so that they would benefit and no one is worthy of such a description and a name other than Allah azza wa jal, Allah has always been, Kareem, and will always be Kareem. And one of the meanings of Corinne is the one who is flawless. Who has no short comings who is infallible.
And this is why when the Prophet Assam was asked, Who is the Kareem?
Who's the honorable one? Not in terms of generosity, but in terms of status. So the Prophet said, it is Al Kareem Abdul Kareem Abdul Kareem Abdul Karim. It is Prophet Yusuf, the son of Prophet Jacob, the son of Prophet is half the son of Prophet Ibrahim, a chain of noble men. So they said, no, no, we were not asking you about this. So then they answered, He answered them in a different
context and a different answer. And
Kareem is describing the essence of ALLAH, and also his actions. So Allah azza wa jal, in essence, is noble, generous, honorable, in his attributes, in his actions, in his names, and everything he does, as well gel, and when we want to differentiate between a crumb, and Kareem
and by the way, a crumb was mentioned in the Quran, where Allah says, recite, and your Lord is the Most Generous ACARA Buka Acklam. So this is a name proven by the Quran. What's the difference between them scholars say, like a Rahman. And Rahim a Rahman is describing the essence of ALLAH cifre to that, while a Rahim is describing the actions of Allah. Likewise, a crumb is describing the Essence of Allah azza wa jal, while Kareem is describing his actions and the meaning of Kareem and an Akram is a cocktail of beautiful descriptions. So some say he is the one who gives without compensation. Al Karim is the one who gives
Without a reason and look at the disbelievers look at the atheists. Look at the enemies of Islam. Allah gives them abundantly without any limitation, which shows you how generous he is. He's the one who gives, without paying attention, whether they will use it in good or bad, he doesn't care because he owns everything. He doesn't care whether they're believers or disbelievers, whether they're grateful or rejectable. To what he does. He's the one al Karim, who's happy when people accept His gifts, and they are showing their gratitude to it. And he's the one who's giving is general to all without any discrimination, and he's the one who gives even before you ask him as
well and this is why whenever you ask Allah for something, he gives it to you. And if you will try to count Allah's favors and blessings, you would fail and would not be able to do so.
The third beautiful name we have with us is a name that is authentic in the Sunnah.
And this name is Al Morell P, the giver and it's related to Al Karim. In terms of generosity. However, Al Mati was mentioned in an authentic hadith where where the prophet said I said, I'm in Allah, Al Murthy. Allah is the Giver, what Anna Qasim and I'm the distributor. So the actual gift comes only from Allah azza wa jal and it is Allah who gives everything who guides everyone who provides for all Allah says in the Quran, Allah Boon Allah the artha Aquila, che in Hulka Huth, Amma hada he said, Our Lord is He who gave each thing its form and then guided it.
And Allah is giving is divided into two types, general and specific. So the general type is for all Allah gives this world wealth, health, power, to whomever he wishes, regardless of their religious inclination, because he's the giver. Allah says in the Quran, coulomb Nami, Doha, Allah, Allah, Allah, Min artha Arabic, Allah says that to each category, we extend to these and to those from the gift of your Lord, and never has the gift of your Lord been restricted. This gift from the giver is to all and this is general. Some people say why is it the Muslims in Somalia or in Bangladesh are so poor and they have famine or floods, while non Muslims in Europe are enjoying beautiful weather,
beautiful scenery, health, wealth, etc. This is in Allah's hands. Allah tests those and test those and Allah azza wa jal gives whomever he wishes, according to His Divine Decree, we cannot judge that or complain to that, but the specific giving a Marathi when Allah azza wa jal specifically gives those whom he loves, He gives them the utmost in giving and favors and blessings. And this is when he gives to the messengers to the prophets and to the righteous people. As when Allah azza wa jal was asked by prophet shall a man to grant him rain that no one after him would be capable of having something similar to it. Allah granted it, Allah gave it to him and there are so many examples.
Everything you enjoy, is a gift from Allah azza wa jal who is the giver
another name of Allah has beautiful names is up by Yeva and this was also mentioned in the authentic hadith where the prophet said so Samia Yohannes in Allah hoppy Boone wala Caballo in LA Pavan, what does that leave me in
Arabic colloquial Arabic means good.
But in classical Arabic it means the pure one, the one perfect and rightly declared free of all deficiencies and shortcomings. This is a YouTube
I'll call the Al says, a type when describing Allah azza wa jal, it refers to the one who's flawless, who has no shortcomings and it exactly or almost similarly to the name Elkwood Deus. And you remember in the very beginning episodes, we spoke about the produce the pure, the
perfect SubhanaHu isaa what gel, so, a pipe is similar to it. And if not, Iam has a beautiful remark, you know, in our Tisha hood we say, at the here to Lila he will pay EBA to Salawa to a tee, but we say adhere to the law he was Salawat to what payee but what does that mean? means all types of greetings
are dedicated to Allah, all type of prayers are dedicated to Allah, what by ye that the plural of tinium everything that is pure, everything that is good, can only be attributed to Allah, the Almighty, so his actions are valuable, His names are payable, his attributes are type,
his name of pipe, means that nothing comes out of Allah azza wa jal, except something that is pure, something that is good, nothing goes up to him, except good deeds that are tied to him. Nothing comes close to him, except that is paid to him the good words of caramel pay him a is elevated and rising to him. So all types of PE bat which includes our words, our prayers, our actions, befits him as though a jewel and reach reach him and no one deserves this except the almighty up by Yebo as watching and finally, we have a roof
and a roof is one of Allah's beautiful names that were mentioned in the Quran in many places, usually associated with a Rahim so what does a roof mean in English? It means the compassionate and kind
Okay, so when you say a row for Rahim, Rahim is merciful. So it also means compassionate. So what's the difference between them? Listen, Allah says in the Quran, and if it had not been for the favor of Allah upon you, and His mercy, and because Allah is kind and merciful, are often by him.
Combining two names of Allah means that there is a distinction. There is a difference between them.
You don't know. You don't say he is merciful. He's merciful.
It doesn't make any sense. When you say are often Rahim means that our oath has a specific meaning. Rahim has a specific meaning likewise
in the Masada to live for karawal Misaki.
For Cora, our are poor masa keen, are needy when they're separated. So every factor is miskeen. And every miskeen is fatigue, when they're combined together now each one has a specific meaning of its own. So what is the difference between a roof
which is extremely merciful and merciful. Scholars looked at a very
slight and delicate difference. They said, Rahim is merciful. We know that and it describes Allah's actions. However, sometimes such mercy comes with a price with some torment with some punishment. Therefore, this does not go against the name, Rahim.
Don't you see that when a person is sick, and he's in pain and agony?
Allah is Rahim with him. How come? Because soon
He's gonna recover. And he will notice that this illness caused hundreds and 1000s of his sins to be erased
and it made him stronger. So this illness was camouflaged
mercy. So it's mercy that was hidden from us. Because the conclusion was
beneficial was positive
or off, has no hidden things. It's pure mercy, no punishment, no compensation, no
pain in it. It comes without a price. So a roof is a far delicate
type of mercy than a Rahim. And the scholars who came with this conclusion, gave an example from the Quran Allah says a Zania towards Zanni for Julie do Kula hidden min Huma may utter gel the wallet hood can be Hemara Fatone, feeding Allah. Look at this
exact usage of word. Allah says what translates to the unmarried women and the unmarried men found guilty of sexual intercourse lash or flog each one of them with 100 lashes and do not be taken by pity here is Rafa in Arabic, which is we have the name of roof.
Notice that he did not say and do not be taken by mercy for them.
Because if Allah said, Don't be taken by mercy, meaning that this is total punishment,
has no forgiveness has no benefits at all. But Allah use the word proffer meaning that this is a punishment hence, it contains some sort of torment and some sort of hardship, which has no route for in it, but it has mercy. So Allah did not put mercy instead of pity or Rafa. He used the word Rafa to show that yes, there is punishment, there is something that people hate, resent and maybe are hurt by it. But at the end, because it's merciful, there is benefit for them. While Rafa comes with the name of her oath, with no strings attached, its utmost mercy, without anything being covered. And hello, Amy says, are off means the one who takes it easy upon his servants, because he doesn't
burden them beyond what they can bear. And this is obvious when we see that at times of weakness and decrease of power, Allah the Almighty, reduces the tension upon people. So a traveler prays to records instead of four, he is exempted from fasting until he resides, a person who's well is not treated as a person who is sick. All of this is considered to be
water from the roof, or Rahim among his delicate mercy towards us, that he knew our weakness as well. And that he made everything in this universe, whether in the heavens and the earth, to serve us and to benefit us. So He made the Earth flat for us, and he made the heavens without any pillars. When I say the earth flat, I don't mean that. It's not spherical. I mean, if you look, it's flat.
If you look as far as you can see, it's flat. It's not curved for you, but it is spherical, as we all know. So Allah azza wa jal created everything that we need. And when he tells us this in the Quran, he concludes the iron with a roof or Rahim in Arabic comb, Laura over Rahim, for example, and they carry your loads, that is the animals to a land you could not have reached except with difficulty to yourselves. Indeed, your Lord is kind and merciful.
Kind and Merciful Grove, Rahim. So we see that this is part of Allah's mercy and delicate mercy, as well. And we can go on and on and on to speak about this, but
We conclude with this last verse that Allah azza wa jal preserves
upon us, the good deeds we do, no matter how little you spend in charity, no matter how many soldiers you offer, in the middle of the night and you forget about it, everything is calculated and everything is given to you. Once Allah azza wa jal holds you to account Allah says, and never would Allah have caused you to lose your faith. That is your previous prayers. Indeed Allah is to the people kind and merciful in Allah have been NASCI la often Rahim we have a short break, stay tuned, and inshallah we'll be right back
Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Today we're going to talk about the book interactions of the greatest leader, the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam divided the poor people among the companions, so that they were fed ABCD in May Allah have mercy upon him said, in the evening, the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would divide some poor people, between some of his companions. So it would be that a man would go with one man, another with two men, another with three, and so for, up until turn on Hudson, may Allah have mercy upon him said, and the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would take any of them that remained into his home, and would feed
them whatever he had. This hadith is reported by Ahmed al Bernie ruled it as authentic in his book, or Sahiba. also reported by Ibn Abu Shaybah in his book and Musan enough.
Salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah and welcome back. Our first caller of behalfs from Bangladesh said I'm writing
My question is a while making individual dua before Iftar we prepare for breaking the past I've heard someone say that we shouldn't raise our hands. Is this true chef? Okay, I will answer Chava
and we have CD from Germany.
So family culture sounds Allah share what's the wording of people who have a problem in the Arabic language and they can speak the Arabic words and sentences fluently in the prayers and they sometimes other and repeat some words in the prayer are they required to perform social circle? And if so, did they make it after or before Sudan?
Okay, I will answer inshallah.
And we have a SAR from Kashmir.
So I'm gonna share some phala share. My question is a week ago or so I contracted COVID-19 But
recovering now, but check my parents want to sacrifice sheep or lamb and distribute the meat to the people and also Sheikh they have given some money to the mosques, like 1100 rupees to each mosque. So is this permissible?
Okay, I will answer a Shan
Abdullah from Spain
hola from Spain
it is from the UK
che horn Salam Alikum sounds Allah. Allah
Yeah, she my question um,
it pertains to, you know, like, a bit of a thing I have a phenomenon that I have when reciting the Quran. It's just
like, I don't know you could cut a lot of you know, a lot of the Muslims you know, have the same kind of problem with the water. But this is if you could, you know, kind of an OCD if you like, like, Girl Ramadan. I'm trying to, you know, complete as much as possible but I'm being a bit held back because I'm caught. I constantly had this phenomenon. Dow making a lot of mistakes in my presentation.
Okay, I will answer Sharla
Sumaiya from the Emirates
the same as salam aleikum sounds Allah
Yeah. This my question is Why should women do it take off in the month of Ramadan and what is minimum time?
I will answer Shama
I have met from the UK
Met cinematical sounds Allah.
Chef I asked you a while back regarding the white minimum and how I like received it for me that it's okay to just wipe normally.
I came across this,
this passage and then Tim hit
which the you know, the scholars that say that it's really obligatory to have the whole head in a window. They use the verse talking about TMO as evidence to say that it's not that I think they say that the unanimously agreed that is not permissible to watch a new only part of the face and would go to wipe only pause and say Mum, so I'm confused on what you said and what I read.
Maybe you can clarify inshallah.
Abby from Indonesia
Salam aleikum say Allah I
want to ask you Can we make dua the same way like we doing zekiel I mean the same to do over and over again repeatedly throughout the day without raising our hand and without any would do
is I follow him
and we have Mohammed from the US
I wanted to know like in the prayer while I'm praying and I'm resetting a surah and all of a sudden I realized that I got stuck in that point and I don't remember the next verse. So after trying few seconds I can remember today we said another Surah or should I go for ruku and as well it happened like after finishing the salah I after I I will I will answer your question Mohammed insha Allah because we have only one questions
so hey from Malaysia
there's a shift so he'll
shares I have question
I am aware of the Hadith saying that
okay, I don't remember the Hadith exactly, but the meaning is that a house that contains a dog a portrait and a picture, the angel does not come into it. So sure.
In my house, unfortunately, I have some of these items and sometimes I try to memorize the Quran but these things distract me and I'm a bit hesitant to talk to my parents about this because I want to prioritize to toe heat first and then telling them about the names and attributes of Allah. So I am I'm it's a fork of the road What should I do here? Okay, I will answer in sha Allah. Mohammed or Mahmoud from Bangladesh
Salaam Alaikum salaam Allah
shake my cushion is during the last time I took my shower I raised my mouth and then my nose then I pour two marks of water on my body after pouring two marks of water I suddenly was my rinsing nose was correct or not then I just took some water and rinse my nose just the way I did but it was tutorial event just to make me satisfied that way I did it was right or wrong but it was totally irrelevant.
Then I remember this is a whisper for from Triton and I just want to note my shower I didn't repeat this irrelevant act will affect my shower or what was my shoulders? Okay, I will answer inshallah. Final question is artists from India
slowly Bucha Allah
I share my cushion is that when we pray in congregation of three or four people in a room, where there is only place for oneself, then how should we stand
Okay, I will have some Bangladesh. Some say that we should not raise our hands when we make dua before the f bar. This is
not part of the prohibited things. Now this is a place of general dua the
Prophet told the Saudis assume that the dua of the person traveling the dua of a person breaking is fast. They do have a person at the last hour of Friday, all of these types of dua are answered by Allah. Where do we get that it is not permissible to raise your hands. This is totally bogus. You can raise your hands without any problem. See from Germany he says people who do not pronounce Arabic words correctly and during salah they are forced to repeat it twice or three times. Do they make sudo the cell for that the answer is no. sujood disavow is done when you add or take out a mandatory act mistakes or forgetting a verse or so in recitation does not fall under the acts that
you have to remove or have to offer sujood Purcell for that bicep from Kashmir.
He recovered from COVID And Alhamdulillah. May Allah azza wa jal make that purification of your sense, his parents slaughtered the sheep and gave masjids in the vicinity some rupees as sadaqa is that permissible answer is yes. either. It's a form of gratitude to Allah azza wa jal or it is a form of
seeking Allah's protection from calamities and both are permissible. The public and the poor and needy are benefiting from it. And the Razzies from UK he says he suffers from with swass During pray, reciting the Quran, you have to ignore this and the more difficult it is for you to pronounce the Quran and you struggle with it. The double the reward you get in sha Allah so ignore this try to focus on doing a good job. Try to practice after Salat and inshallah you will be doing well. So Maria says where do women offer a decaf? During the month of Ramadan? The answer is the Attica for men and women cannot be done except in a full fledged Masjid. Which means that prayer halls are not
included you cannot offer it Caf in prayer halls, or masala, it has to be in a full fledged masjid. And to my knowledge in the UAE is all closed for at Caf there is no RT calf in Ramadan, and specifically for women and hence, they cannot do that in homes. So in sha Allah, Allah will grant them reward according to the intervention from the UK. He says that, he asked me a question before, and I answered him, and now he's coming back because he read something in a handbook, which stated that wiping should cover the whole of the organ. And this is not true, not true. When you wipe over your head, you cannot ensure or even claim that you have managed to wipe over every strand of hair.
So he's saying what to do, who cares what to do. If you go and read in random books and want to rectify what I say with these random books, stay with the books, I told you logically, when you do this, the Sunnah is to blow and wipe your face. Now you want to tell me, if I were to put my hands in flour, dip it in flour, and wipe my face that every single inch of my face would be covered by it by one wipe. This is not possible. So the point is that wiping is different than washing. You do your best by doing it once you do this. And that's it. You're not supposed to bring a microscope or a magnifying glass and see whether it's covered or not. Now if you read in other books, don't read
books without consulting at scholar, go to your scholar and ask him and show him so that he could rectify to you and prove to you whether this is legit, or it's just a book in fact, that are that is following blindly what his chef said and what his chef said and what his Imam said, Though you go to the Quran and Sunnah with understanding of the
favorite generations and understand that through that otherwise Celebi be from Indonesia, he says Can we repeat dua like we do with vicar and this is a little bit different because thicker can be repeated throughout the day. So you say subhanallah
Subhan Allah Subhan Allah and repeat it and work and do dua has to be a little bit higher status. Because Hadith of the Prophet says that Allah does not respond to a heart that is absent minded. So you can make dua while doing your shores while working out, but you're not paying attention. So this da has no value.
And the current da, both of them do not require that you face the Qibla. They do not require that you are in the state of voodoo. So you can do them whether you are enabled or not are facing the crypto or not. But what counts with dua is that you have it wholeheartedly with your heart, President
Mohamed from the US he says while I'm reading and reciting.
What happens if I were to forget the idea that I was reciting afterwards? I forgot. So Should I skip it? Yes, you can skip it, you can say or the mistana gem and recite another Surah. And you can go for record. Either way. There is no problem in that in sha Allah Sohail from Malaysia, he says that his house contains dogs, portraits and statues. And we know that the Prophet said that is an Indian Mala Iike angels do not enter a house that has a dog, a portrait, or a statue. And if this is an authentic hadith, the angels of mercy,
the angels of protection, do not enter such a house, the angels of registering your good and bad deeds will be there. They never leave you at all. So he's saying that I'm a bit distracted with these things. I cannot memorize the Quran. And I don't want to speak to my parents and bring this to their attention. Because there are bigger fish to fry. I'd like to focus on prioritizing to heat and important issues. Before I speak about these small issues. Well, if this is your intention, which is a valid and good intention,
confine yourself to your room. Nobody has control to what goes into your room. So if your room has no statues, no portraits and no dog, then you will not be distracted and the angels will be present in sha Allah.
Muhammad from Bangladesh, he says, while performing hustle, I accidentally repeated
rinsing my nose, because I had doubts. It doesn't make any difference it you arrange your nose in the beginning in the middle, and at the end, this does not invalidate the sequence of hosel because it doesn't impact it. So there's nothing wrong with your whistle at all. And the final question, and we may take a call or two afterwards,
I'll get from India. He says,
if we are three or four people and praying in one line,
because there is no sufficient room in the room, we're praying, how should we stand? Well, you should stand all of you to the right of the Imam. If there is no place to have the imam in the front and you at the back then you should pray to the right of the imam in the same row without any problem. If you can go a little bit behind to the best of your ability that would be sufficient because we know if there are two praying Imam and a follower, they pray shoulder to shoulder but if there is a second person with them, they should go behind the Imam if this is not possible, because there is no room then they should go as far as possible. Maybe half a foot or a foot behind him
where it is possible for him to be as much as possible to the front. Do we have any callers
and we have a
lot ephah from the US.
So why you got some Florida cattle? So I have a question. In my school here. We can even go into message a teacher, you need to message them on an app called Remind. And I have a male teacher so when I message him, no one can see him. No one can see the message. He sent me a new tweet but the primary chart is this allow. Okay, there is no problem in sha Allah and doing so because this is a message and a sickly business. No flirting, no socializing, so messaging him is permissible without a problem. Rush it from Tunisia.
So Michael shake
Salah is it in me European bodies and the metal Selita with salmonella, California,
the chef and the analysts on local chef dechlorinate. Well, basically what Rashad is saying is that when the Imam concludes eight records of taraweeh he has to pray three records as the norm. So he says, Stand up to pray Salah to Schaeffer, meaning that he's going to pray to rock guys. And then Witter one Raka. What's the ruling on that saying this is not from the Sunnah, whether it's correct or not, this is disputable, because he may intended that this is shefford Witter.
And this is wrong because the eight records before that were all Schaeffer, two by two by two by two. Now the three is praying are known as WITR. This is why the first two he recites sortal Allah Surah to Caffee rune and then sort of Allah He doesn't recite in the first two normal Quran as he was continuing the ninth and the 10th raka rather, he specifically prays a particular Surah So this is why is known the three of them as WITR. So technically speaking, he should not have said that, but saying it in the first place is not part of the Sunnah. And finally, she had from Bangladesh.
So we can check some Tula.
I was wondering whether it is permissible to use a phone plan that gives you unlimited texting calling.
Okay. So basically,
she have is asking about a mobile plan, where they give you a particular number of a minutes and messages as a package, but you have to pay a particular amount of money. It seems to me that this is permissible, because whether you use that or not, this is up to you because if you exceed it, you're going to pay more if you don't use it, then it's the payment you have paid is way over the norm. If you did not take this package 500 minutes a month, would have costed you maybe twice the price, but they are giving you a discount and incentive for you to participate in this prepaid or postpaid regardless. So it seems to sha Allah that this is permissible en la xojo knows best. This is all the
time we have until we meet tomorrow same time I leave you here Manila was Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
what a small
huddle room will be where they
