About the Brothers and Sisters in Islam, a Salam alaykum. Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.
Our first Beautiful Name of Allah has beautiful names in tonight's episode is Al cabbie. And everybody knows this name, and we frequently repeat it. It is incomparable, the great and Allah says in the Quran early molvi was shahada al Kabir al Motta Al, he is Knower of the unseen and the witnessed the grant the exalt the exalted, he's the grant. And Allah also says well and Allah ha who will ally you will Kabir and because Allah is the Most High, the grant, so
Kabir refers to Allah azza wa jal as everything else is below him.
And underneath him, in the sense that nothing is compared to his greatness subhanho wa Taala and he's greater than everything
in sunnah Tirmidhi idea of know how to mela be pleased with him, when he came to meet the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, and asking security from the Prophet. The Prophet alayhi salatu salam met him in his own house and honored him because he was a tribes leader. And he asked him two straight questions. So he said to him,
What makes you run away from La Ilaha illa Allah, from the word there is no God worthy of being worshipped other than Allah. Do you know any god other than Allah? It said, No. Then the Prophet asked him this question. What makes you run away from saying Allahu Akbar?
Allah who is the greatest Allah is great. Do you know Do you know anything? There is bigger, that is greater than Allah azza wa jal. And this is what most
Muslims fail to convey to others. When we speak to them, some of us coat quotations from the Bible from here, and they're not addressing the issue of Tawheed directly heads on.
Allahu Akbar is said, in so many things. We say it in the den.
A great number of times. We see it in the car. After the prayer, we say it before we go to bed. We say it
as a form of the account of the morning and the evening certain of cars. So we often say it, even during the prayer Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar.
We say it more than 300 times a day,
which shows you how firm it is in the believers heart, that there is nothing greater, nothing more majestic than Allah azza wa jal, and everything is small compared to him. subhanho wa taala. And this
to the second name with us today,
which is as magnificent which is as beautiful.
So I'll Kadir we know what it means. The following name is Alavi.
And this is a tremendous one, the magnificent one. Allah says in the Quran Lahoma Fatima what Yama fill all the Wahoo Allah Ali your Levine, To Him belongs wherever is in the heavens and the earth whatever is in the earth, and He is the Most High, the Most Great. So they translated here. I love him into great and it's also the magnificent one.
LMMS said he says Allah vain, encompasses all beautiful attributes of greatness, of pride, of glory, of majesty.
Allah Veeam is the one that all hearts love, and All Souls turn to
and all those who know Allah know that he's greater than all what they know.
Part of believing in this beautiful named Alavi is that you respect
what Allah azza wa jal ordered us to respect and to glorify what Allah azza wa jal ordered us to glorify, part of believing in Alavi that you do not disobey Him, and that you remember him without forgetting Him, and that you thank him without disbelieving in His bounties and favors.
Part of believing in the name Allah Levine, is that you respect the times, the locations that Allah azza wa jal has ordered us to respect Allah says, that eco may you have Lim SHA, Allah for inner harmony, Tuckwell Kulu, that is so and whoever honors the symbols, the rights of Allah indeed it is from the piety of the hearts. And also Allah says, What translates to that has been commanded. And whoever honors the sacred ordain and says of Allah, it is best for him in the sight of the Lord.
So, this form of Talim comes from the name of a Levine, part of believing in the this beautiful name of him, that you do not object to whatever he has legislated, or that he had created or preordained upon you.
You have full content and acceptance to Allah's religion, otherwise you would not be believing in the name of him.
LKB allow them and the third name is a weak,
the one perfect and strength and ability away. Allah says *a farofa whom Allah in Who are we Yun Shahidullah a cop? So Allah sees them indeed He is powerful and severe in punishment. No one doubts Allah has power. When Allah decrees something, nothing can stand in his way.
If Allah azza wa jal wills, a calamity or tribulation, nothing can stand in his way. Can anybody prevent a volcano from happening? Or an earthquake or a tsunami or whatever? When these things come? This is the Wrath of Allah azza wa jal that no one can stand in its way because Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one with the perfect strength and ability.
Imam of poverty says, part of Allah's Name a week that no one can stand in his way. No one can stand in His power. No one can defend himself from his wrath and anger. Wherever he decrees takes place and whenever he wants to torment a people it would take place without any stopping.
And Allah azza wa jal is not as we think
of ourselves as being powerful. So we have humans who claim to be the most the strongest man on earth, they are strong, they think of themselves as powerful, their power is limited. Their power is temporary. Look at those who were Mr. Universe or Mr. Olympia for so many decades years. What had happened to them at the moment, you can even look at them. Allah's power
cannot be defeated. Allah's strength cannot ever weaken. Allah azza wa jal is the ultimate in power subhanho wa Taala al Covey
is similar in meaning to Al Mateen which is the fourth name with us today. Al Mateen is stronger in power. And some scholars make a distinction so they say
are we is with ability
so, you can be able to do things but you're not strong
and alcohol he has to be able and strong at the same time.
Al Mateen is something that is of a higher level, the mighty in strength or the strong. So he's the one who never gets tired and nothing is difficult for him and his power never ends. So, this is very similar to how we about as I said, there is a difference, a slight delicate difference between them. Nevertheless, they all
describe Allah azza wa jal and they all are all part of his beautiful names.
The following name is Al Majeed
and Al Majeed is the one perfect and glory and honor and it is stemmed from the noun a meshed glory. So, Al Majeed is the one with glory. Allah says in the Quran Hua Hua forward, we're Dude, we went through these two beautiful names alga four and alpha dude, though our Shin Majeed and he is the forgiving and affectionate, honorable Owner of the Throne. So Allah is the one with honor the honorable one evening Iam says, Allah described himself to be an Majeed and this means that all attributes of perfection which humans cannot comprehend or calculate or count,
due to the abundance of Allah's favors and blessings and actions, and continuous goodness that comes to us. Therefore, he is an Majeed, the one who if is the effector of what he intends for I don't live in a unit. Nothing stands against Allah's wills will. And this is why he is Al Majeed subhanho wa taala. And alleged
glory is what Arabs use to describe anything that has a lot of goodness in it. A lot of honor, and attributes of perfection. And usually, the best to
associate with this beautiful name is Al Hamid.
So Al Hamid Al Majid al Majid al Hamid, to associate both together usually is found in the Quran.
Allah says, When the angels came to the house of Ibrahim peace be upon him, they said Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh Who are they come Ahlulbayt in a ho hum Eden, Majeed May the Mercy of Allah and His blessings be upon you people of the house Indeed he is praiseworthy and honorable Hamid Majeed also, we are told to use this when we offer the salutation of Ibrahim at the end of the solid in the Hamadan Majeed and we say this every single solid and also after you rise from record, you say Rock Band our local humped a hello center, he will match the one worthy of being praised and glorified of with greatness. So, Alhamdulillah merged
and Hamid and Majeed they are always associated together because they encompass all beautiful description of perfections that can only be used with Allah, the Almighty.
The following three names are very close in meaning but they're used separately in the Quran.
So we have Li Li,
n Allah, Al Mata
and they all refer to
the high the exalted. So Al Ali is the exalted one and Allah is the most high al matar is a supreme and exalted one. And these names were mentioned in the Quran. For example, Allah says that he can be an Allah who will help one NEMA ruin him in Dooney, who will bow open one Allahu Allah Ali Al Kabir, Li Li. So Allah is the Exalted and Most High, the grand
and also Allah says in the Surah that we hear every single Friday and an eight prayers and we read in winter seven
be his model beacon Allah. exalt the Name of your Lord the most Hi Allah.
And Allah says Allah motivate us Shahad al Kirby UL moto Al, his Knower of the unseen and the witnessed the grant the exalted.
So, all of these
names and Ali and Al matar refer to the fact that Allah is above everything. So He is the Most High. Nothing is above Allah azza wa jal and also it refers to Allah's strength and power.
And that Allah azza wa jal
is the one that has control over everything has subdued everything, there is no God worthy of being worshipped, except him, there is no one nothing greater than him. He's the most high that no one is higher than him, he's the great that no one is greater than Him. And this is why we always
defend our Lord, praise him from any flaws or shortcomings or bad description the enemies of Allah may attribute to Him.
And when we say that Allah is the most Hi,
this is referring to three types of elevation and height, as the scholars say, or a low woods that were older was SIFAT Whoa, whoa, sorry. So this translates into
exalted in his essence. So Allah azza wa jal is above his throne, nothing is above him. So this is talking about Allah's essence, about the VAT.
And then, when we talk about exalted in his attributes, as you have seen all of his beautiful names are
in names and attributes, nothing can exceed Allah azza wa jal are beat that and thirdly, we have exalted in the sense of prevailing and controlling. So Allah is the most high controlling everything.
Nothing can come out of Allah's control. Nothing can happen without Allah's Will, or pre
ordained moment. Everything is under Allah's control as well and his knowledge, we have a short break, stay tuned, and inshallah we'll be right back
As salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh today we're gonna talk about the book interactions of the greatest leader, the prophets of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam training his companions to be modest. Hakeem been Hizam may Allah be pleased with him said, I asked the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he gave me then I asked him another two times, and each time he gave me then he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told me Oh Hakeem, this life is green and beautiful. So whoever takes it without greed, or persisting on our skin, for it will have blessing in it. And whoever takes it, while making it close to their heart will not have blessing in it, they will be
like the one who eats without becoming full, the hand that is higher, giving the pool is better than the one that is lower receiving from others. So I said, O Messenger of Allah, my him who has sent you with the truth, I will never ask anyone for money until I die afterwards. Abubaker may Allah be pleased with him, called Hakeem, may Allah be pleased with him in order to give him what he refused to take. And the same with Omar. So Omar, may Allah be pleased with him said all Muslims. You are my witness that I have offered some of this booty to Hakeem, but he refused to take it. Hakeem did not take money from anyone after the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam until he died

I wanted to ask on the ruling i I heard there was a statement on one of the so called Islamic thinkers that says that when you see a woman who looks beautiful and you gaze at her and say subhanallah and this gaze would turn into good deeds so what's the basis on this
and we have she had from Bangladesh,
Salam when we can check out Allah
should use it that if people in the masjid after prayer they do do it in congregation or recite the last three verses of Surah HaSharon congregation you said that don't take part with them and leave them as sick. But if I want to play the SRA or do want to do thicker in the masjid, so can I sit there and just not take part with the part I have to live demonstrate? Okay, I will answer inshallah.

She is congregation congregational prayer is prayed in our Masjid after midnight, The imam leads the Orisha and the entire week alone then he leaves and then takes his place and leaves the widow Salah in the Hanafi way later on after midnight, the Imam leaves the TIAMO level and finishes it by leading the witness Salah in the similar way should we avoid paying the waiter behind the weapon?

yes a very succinct one.
it's just it's just about the plans for your for your for your Darwin you know I want to start visiting you know countries or venues I can to you know give live lectures and stuff and if you'll be visiting the UK to talk on the Hydra I did not get your question are you inviting me to the UK

So they moved from the UK says that in the masjid, they usually have to eat salads. No, that was the other Muhammad from the US.
Table says that. In the UK. It's rare that you would find a place in the open to conduct or eat salad. So if there aren't any open plazas for us
or it was raining or it was anything of the sort and there is only the masjid to perform it can we perform it in the masjid? The answer is yes, there is nothing wrong in that it's against the Sunnah. But the prayer is valid inshallah and is better than not praying. Abdullah from Spain, he's doubtful whether he had the nocturnal emission or not. And when he checked, he saw a dropper tool. And he waited a while to go and check it again. But it disappeared. So he doesn't know what to do. Well, if it's not there, it doesn't exist. Maybe it was your imagination because semen becomes hard. And you can touch it, you can feel it unlike
prosthetic fluid or muddy, muddy, it is not that hard, you cannot feel it. But many are semen is becomes hard. It becomes like a layer that you can touch it. So if it's not there, then you don't have to perform. Also, Mohammed from the US says, the Masjid next to our home. They pray the Jumaa twice, they pray the aid twice. We've mentioned before that the scholars say that it is not permissible to perform Friday twice in the same message. And this is the vast majority of Muslims and this is what high at the major Council of Scholars in Saudi Arabia, give the fatwa upon. So you should only pray with the first Jamar. As for the eat, it should take the same ruling. And if not,
there is a lot of space for people to attend, they can pray outside and it won't take more than five to 10 minutes and Allah knows best Faison from India. He says there ought to be Kalamata led Tamati missionary Maha. Is it part of that car of the morning in the evening? The answer is yes. How many times we repeat it three times in the morning and three times in the evening. As he's from Sri Lanka, he says he's 20 years old, he wants to get married, he cannot afford it what to do.
The Prophet said that it's awesome that you should get married, if you're physically and financially capable. If not, then you have to fast. So fasting is the recommendation of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam.
And meanwhile, you have to try and work hard, find a better income. Look for a woman who would accept marrying you while compromising many of the things that young women may not compromise. So you may find someone who's your age or five years old or 10 years older, who's willing to marry without a lavish wedding or a lot of conditions that would be a burden on your shoulders. And this would protect you from fitness sha Allah, Osama from Pakistan says what's the difference is the difference between fatahna and
zakat. fitrah or the cattle fitter, or sada cattle fitter is a specific amount of food to be given prior to the day of aid.
And it should be one or two nights before it. So on the 28th or the 29th you can give it to the poor and the size of it is well defined. And it is not in accordance to your income or your savings. So the Prophet as in the Hadith obviously the Padre and Abdullah Omar may Allah be pleased with them and others, he prescribed that the cattle fitter to be given out from staple food
the size of one sore
and the SAR is a measure a means of measurement, a unit of measurement by size and not by weight. So if you bring 2.1 to five kilograms of rice and put it in a vessel, this vessel becomes a sore, empty it and you can put in it
dates barley, wheat
raisin whatever that can fit in that vessel, and you can give it to the pool a day or two before it
most importantly before the raid solid because after it's solid it's over the time is is gone.
Zack cat normally speaking this is a pillar of Islam.
And by the way, this zakat of feta or Photron, as you guys call it in order to
the cattle fitter is to be given one SAR the measurement that I have just mentioned
individual or slave, a free man or slave, man or woman, young or old,
it should be given upon Muslims only. So if I have 10 people living in my home, and I'm the breadwinner, I gave the cat 411 Me included with them. So that's 11 and so on.
Zach cat, which is a pillar of Islam is a different ballgame altogether because it is a percentage,
depending on the type of the wealth, so there is a cat on livestock. Camels are different from cows from different from sheep,
with conditions that it is grazing, not being fed by me.
Then we have zakat on crops that come up off the ground. And by that we talk about grains, dates, raisins, but not fruits or vegetables. There is no zakat on that. The third category is gold and silver and whatever falls underneath what does fall underneath, such as currencies, riyals dollars, euros, whatever.
Then finally, products or merchandise that are circulating, selling and buying, like a shop of groceries of clothes, a showroom of cars, someone dealing with real estate's he sells and buys, sells and buys, these are all marketable. And this is a particular percentage. Every lunar year, you calculate and you give 2.5% on some of these items, and other more, maybe more or differently and Allah knows best. Latif says if I understood her question correctly,
she's saying about selling a jacket to someone who may not wear hijab, etc. There's nothing wrong in selling clothes to people that you are not 100% certain that they will wear it outside without hijab. Otherwise, we would have closed all shops that sell clothes.
We don't know the women who are buying it will be abiding by hijab or no.
selling clothes is Khaled. Using that particular piece of cloth is something haram or halal. This depends on the one who buys it. Likewise, if I have water
I'm a supermarket. I wouldn't investigate. What do you want this bottle of water for? Excuse me? What do you what are you buying it for? Maybe you're gonna make ice cubes so that you can drink with your whiskey. This is this guy's nuts. This is not your responsibility selling
bottled water is halal haram Palla hulless what he does with it is his problem my Ford says we don't have a T calf due to
the closure of masjids can we do at home? The answer is no. There decaf can only be performed in a full fledged Masjid it cannot be performed in a prayer hall or a masala also, sir what I think you got you guys slower so so or I don't know I've lost the language.
So this is not permissible except in a full fledge Masjid. If it's closed, then Allah will give you an intention. Reward according to your intention in sha Allah. Zayn says, there is some of those Islamic thinkers as they say, Who, whenever they see a beautiful woman, they tell you, you may look at her and enjoy the beauty that Allah has created and say subhanallah and you will be rewarded. Lowering the gaze is only for those who, when they see such a woman, their knees start to shiver and shake and they start to draw drill and their heartbeat raises this is haram for them. Okay? Don't pay attention to someone who's not a scholar. This gentleman, may Allah have mercy on his soul was
an atheist. And
for many, many years,
he came back to Islam thinking of Islam in a positive way, but in his Sufi way as well. And he wrote many books that had some good and a lot of that he's dead. He died like 25 years ago, 20 years ago or so. Why dig up his archives
have now and ask what do you think of this? We have Quran and Sunnah we don't care what Tom, Dick or Harry say. So this is a waste of time to talk about the faults of those who died and bringing it up, just to tarnish their name or to speak about them in a negative way and Allah knows best
she have from Bangladesh. He says, You said that when the congregation is engaged in congregational dua or the care or etcetera, I should leave them. What about if I'm staying in the masjid, waiting for a shock for the sun to rise? How can I would leave the masjid and lose the reward? No leaving them meaning to leave their circle. So if you go at the back of the masjid and remain away from them engaged in reading the Quran doing your dhikr This is okay. And nothing wrong about that eyeball house from Bangladesh. He says in our masjid, we have a predicament. The imam prays at their Isha and maybe few rockers and then the Advent comes and praise the Witcher in the Hanafi. And after
midnight, the Imam comes to continue night prayer with tahajjud and praise the Witcher three records in the right Sunni way. What to do? What they're doing is totally wrong.
Because whoever leads the prayer in the masjid, they're all considered to be as one.
So it doesn't matter if three Imams pray.
At the same night dividing the prayers between them because at the end of the day, they're all considered to be as one single Imam, the Imam of the masjid.
And this is why in Haram in Mecca or Medina, you have two Imams.
And they're all considered to be as if one imam in order to gain the reward. You can pray tender guys with the First Amendment leave. And you cannot come at the middle of the prayer and pray the remaining 13 records with the Imam, the second Imam and consider to yourself to have prayed the whole night. No you haven't you have to pray the whole 23. So what people are doing is totally wrong and confusing. And I would recommend that you pray in the beginning when the imam prays the three records of his Witter. The more than that is that you stand up for a fourth raka to conclude your night prayer without offering Witter and then you continue with the Imam. But you have to advise him
if you can advise him say it from other says.
I've seen people
making Mother mother raising their mouth with different scopes, then raising their noses with different scopes. And I've seen others rinsing the mouth and the nose in one scoop. Which one is correct and according to the sooner the latter, the sooner is to get the water, put half of it in your mouth and sniff the other half and blow your nose. So one scope for both. Some people might find this difficult, there is no problem in separating them. And Allah knows best Abdul Aziz from the UK, he says, When will you start live conferences and when you will come to the UK. I don't know if I'm ever going to come back to the UK until I am granted a visa which at the moment I was denied
twice. So most likely I would not ever come to the UK for Dawa until they clarify why am I denied visa because when we went to the home office, they said you have nothing against your hamdulillah so it's the visa office that is blocking it. I'm not going I don't need to with the grace of Allah, but to other countries and as soon as on the 17th of May of this month in sha Allah, the ban is uplifted. We will be free to travel in sha Allah to places where it is safe. And hopefully that we will be able to announce this on my Facebook on Twitter and you'll know about that beat Nila finally Ahmed from the US says how do I become more patient? Okay patience and tolerance is not an injection
that you can take or a pill that you can swallow. It is something that you have to condition yourself
in the millennium obita alum will help me with the Hello. The Prophet says a certain
learning knowledge is by learning it
and being forced
Adding is by conditioning yourself to be forbearing. And who ever teaches himself to become patient, Allah would make him patient. So it is a state of mind when you are like a helicopter view, looking at those under you with compassion and forgiveness, when you learn how to pardon when you learn how to look the other way, not every single word someone says to me, what did you say? What did you mean? No,
you cannot live like this, your wife would not stand living with you, your children would not bear being with you. Sometimes you hear something, you just shrug your shoulders and look the other way as if you did not hear it. How to Become patient when you learn and remember that you also have your own flaws, and your own shortcomings and mistakes. And definitely you would not like others to be impatient towards you for your shortcomings and flaws. So likewise, try to overlook people's mistakes and try to have always the upper hand by forgiving and expanding your chest to accept people's mistakes and this inshallah would make you a better person Allah knows best. This is all
the time we have. Until we meet next time I leave here Manila was said mid combo rahmatullahi wa barakato what he'll
