hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam ala Baraka Allah number 10, Lil al Amin Nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi edge remain a Mehrabad. The Brothers and Sisters in Islam as salam aleikum, wa rahmatullahi wa barakato.
For Allah's beautiful names were mentioned in a single ayah in the Quran
in surah Al Hadid.
If not, if I'm not mistaken, it's chapter 57.
And the idea is number three,
Allah says, Who will a will? Well, here was VA hero. Well, bow pin were who will be cliche in Halim. He is the first and the last, the Most High, and the most near and he is of all things knowing.
These are four of Allah's Beautiful Names, that
if you contemplate upon them, would blow your mind away.
Of how magnificent, how beautiful, how powerful, how knowledgeable.
Allah azza wa jal is.
So the first to a well, well after the first and the last deals with time.
And the last two of our hair, while Barton deals with place.
And the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam was the one to explain to us these beautiful names. And his explaination is found in an authentic hadith reported by Al Imam Muslim in his Sohae where the Prophet alayhi salatu salam made dua, and within the DUA, he said, until a well, Felisa Arbella cache, you are the first there is nothing before you and you are the last and after
and there is nothing after you in you are a VA here
and there is nothing above you
and you are L bar thin and there is nothing
more inner than you.
And this is a rough translation. What does that mean?
As for the first
it clearly means that Allah azza wa jal is the first without a beginning. So, there is nothing before Allah.
Everything you know of everything in existence
has a beginning, except Allah azza wa jal, he is the first without a beginning, in the authentic hadith, there was ALLAH and there was nothing with him, nothing existed, except Allah azza wa jal.
And this makes you feel vulnerable, and in need
to the one who has no beginning because everything else has a beginning,
which means that it had something before it. And hence, it cannot be the Lord of the universe. It cannot be the creator of the universe, because it had something before it.
Allah had nothing before him as well.
he's the last without an end. So everything has an ending.
Except Allah azza wa jal.
Allah does not end. Allah does not perish. Allah says everything will be destroyed except his face. There is his essence. There is Allah Himself, everything would perish and cease to exist. Everything will be destroyed, except Allah Himself as well.
So, there is no ending to Allah, the Almighty, as for a VA here
in Arabic, when we say the ruler Vihara over that region or that country, it means to conquer.
But also a raw head means, what appears, what is on the surface, what is above all.
And when it comes to Allah's beautiful name,
this goes with the other beautiful names, Li Li,
n Allah, Al matale. All of these referring to Allah's height, to Allah's, above all creations, with all the three different types of height we spoke about in the previous episode.
So a VA had means that Allah is above everything. And this is why if you read in the Quran, if you read in the Sunnah you would find proof, even the blind can see
that Allah is above all, upon his throne, that the good deeds rise to him, that the angels rise to the seven heavens, that his goodness descends to us. So it all has to do with Allah being above everything. And this is why when we talk to deviant sects and cults of Islam, especially those who say Allah is everywhere.
do not believe in the name of Allah, Allah li do not believe in the name of Allah Avaya here
because they say Allah is everywhere. I was speaking to one of the brothers today in a in a counseling session. He was telling me about a masjid in the Scandinavian countries
that he used to pray in. And he tells me that these people say that Allah
is in us Our old villa.
And they have this concept of El Fana Fila.
This meaning unity with Allah azza wa jal and to dissolve oneself and Allah subhanaw taala This is blasphemous. This is Cofer. This is found in some cults in the subcontinent, in Turkey in the super super Sufis, but this takes them out of the fold of Islam.
Because they falsify the Beautiful Names of Allah.
They discredit Allah azza wa jal,
verses of the Quran and authentic hadith describing that he is above everything.
As for Al bothin, the inner one the most inner one, it refers to that Allah though he is above his throne, above the 77 Heavens, above everything, yet, he is closer to everything than anything else.
Closer in what sense? Closer, in all hearing, all seeing, all controlling, having power over everything, encompasses all information, has knowledge of everything. Even if you look at
10s and hundreds of miles 5000 miles from the closest shore in the notion
hundreds of miles from the closest ship
10 miles down deep, where no submarine could ever go. pitch black darkness
and there is a small oyster
with a creature in sight that is not seen by the naked eye. Allah azza wa jal is closer to its veins and its heart than anything Allah says. And we are closer to him than his his jugular vein. So Allah azza wa jal is closer to each one of us with his knowledge, with his power, with his ability than our jugular veins,
and this throws in your heart
to be shy and bashful. To be F
fraid of Allah and knowing your inner thoughts, and feelings, and how to be ashamed of all of that.
The following name is Al Joah.
And it's translated into the most generous,
the menu efficient.
And Allah azza wa jal or the Prophet I said, I'm said in an authentic hadith in Allah Hi Joanne Don't you hate butchered? Verily Allah is generous. And he loves generosity. And being generous, is not selective.
When you're generous to your race, when you're generous to your people, or to those whom you know, you're not really generous. A truly Jawad person is the one who's generous to all.
And they're very rare
and their generosity still is selective and limited. Unlike Allah azza wa jal, Allah the Almighty is Al Jawad. He is the one who gives without limits to those who ask him where the tongues or the with the deeds, whether they're righteous, or sinners, whether they are hypocrites, or believers or disbelievers, you ask? And Allah azza wa jal would give you,
Allah says, won't be coming near and let him Femina Allah from either Messiah como por for LA heritage, our own and whatever you have a favor, it is from Allah. Everything that you have is from Allah. Then, when adversity touches you, to him, you cry for help.
We have no one else to cry for help. In terms of calamity.
We have only Allah azza wa jal. He's the only one who can we can turn to he's the only one we can beg. But he has trillions of other creatures and us being Joe ad. This does not preoccupy him from answering you
from attending your call from responding to you. Because he is an Joe AD.
The following name is the gentle er Rafi.
And a Rafi was mentioned in the authentic sunnah. When the Prophet said that his salatu salam
in Allaha raffia on your headboard Rifka. While you're at the LRFD Mala yatta yatta lon, Allah is kind, Allah is gentle, and he loves kindness and gentleness.
And he gives when people are kind and gentle, more than what he gives, for those who are violent.
is to be soft, to be kind. In Allah azza wa jal, it's not softness, because this is not appropriate with Allah. It is kindness. It is gentleness, it is to facilitate things and make them easy for everybody. And it is the opposite of making things difficult and hard.
Allah loves those who make things easy for His servants. Allah loves those who tend to put things in perspective so that people don't find hardship. Allah azza wa jal is the one who is gentle, who makes things easy and possible to happen. And among the things that he made possible to happen
is the Quran
over 600 pages
of text only.
And Allah says Allah Claudia Sultan Al Quran le victory for Hulman with decades.
Allah has made the Quran easy to be recited, to be memorized to be remembered
in if Allah had not done this noble
He could have memorized it. Can you look all over the globe?
How many people memorize the Bible?
The Old Testament, the New Testament by heart, not making one single mistake in a letter, you will never find this. Can you find any people who memorize the Indian scriptures?
Or the Buddhist books or different religions? No way, you will find this maybe you will find one in a billion.
But when you come to the Quran,
you will find that there are 10s, literally 10s of millions memorizing it by heart.
And this is not an easy or small number 1010s of millions.
How is this possible? How is it possible for a child of seven years old to memorize the whole Quran? Because a Rafi made it possible. And he made that easy for them. raffia also can refer to the one who's forbearing
It is Allah's gentleness and kindness that saves us from so many
punishments in this life. We have lots and lots of shortcomings
and flaws and sins without end.
And we wonder why isn't Allah punishing us for it? Because Allah is raffia
he is the forbearing al Halim, he is giving us time, so that we may repent and get back to him. Now, the following two names
And Elmo Allah.
Allah says in the Quran, Allah who will lead you Latina and Manu. Allah is the ally, The Guardian Lord, Ally, or the Guardian, Lord of those who believe.
Who's your guardian Lord Allah, who is your ally, Allah azza wa jal, he's actually
and also Allah says that he can be and Allah humma Allah Latina and Manu were Enel caffeine LM hola hola home. That is because Allah is the Protector. Then Mala is the protector. And he is the supporter, the master all of these fit to translate el Mola. That is because Allah is a Protector of those who have believed, and because the disbelievers have no protector.
is the Guardian, the master, the ally, and he is the one
who supports us against our enemies, who guides us when we are lost, exactly as a child's guardian takes care of his affairs, and exactly as a woman, or an orphan, having a guardian in order to make certain decisions for them or with them. So it originates from being close, elderly, or ill, Willa, is originating from being close to someone and no one is closer to to us. Then Allah azza wa jal
and when Allah says, and Tamela Anna from sadhana, other COVID caffeine, You are our Protector. So grant is victory over the disbelievers. We have no other one, to grant us victory other than you and you are our Master, you our you are our King, our Creator, the one whom we worship. Allah says tomorrow do it Allah, Mala whom will help then they are returned to Allah their true Lord. So You are our Lord you are Maulana. So the word molar or Maulana refers to the protector
refers to the master and there is no contradiction between
And the disbelievers having no molar. Because part of the protection
is that one in a general trend for all humans, but there is a specific as usual, limited meaning that is given only to the believers whom Allah azza wa jal protect whom Allah loves whom Allah grants victory. So this is what the scholars interpreted the ayah where it says that Allah is the medulla of the believers and the disbelievers have no molar in the sense of support, protection, and guidance. And finally, the last name with us today is a Nazi.
And muscle means victory. And the seer is the one who helps, who supports who grants you
what you need in order to become victorious. Allah says in the Quran, Allah Allahu Allah movie either come, what Kapha Billa? He will Ian, what? Kapha Billahi Nazira And sufficient is Allah as an ally with Ian, we just spoke about that. And sufficient is Allah as a helper, not C or R. So who is a Nazir?
And they'll say it is the one you trust and not see it is the one you put your full reliance on, that he will not turn you down. And Nazir is the one who grants the believers victory over the disbelievers. He's the one who makes their feet firm on the ground when they meet, and he's the one who throws all and fear in the hearts of the disbelievers. Allah azza wa jal says, For now I'm Mel Mola when I'm in the seat, and excellent is the protector. And excellent is the helper, Allah the Almighty as well, John, we have a short break, stay tuned, and inshallah we'll be right back
Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. Today I'm going to talk about the book interactions of the greatest leader. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam reminded us through his guidance and example, that Islam is complete submission to the will of Allah. For one who submits a mad declaration or display of belief will not be taken for success, but his or her heart and soul will certainly be put to test. Allah tested the prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Savelle in order that he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam becomes an example for his companions to follow. Similarly, he tests the believer to see whether he lives a righteous life, in accordance with the
instructions and commands set by Allah all lives according to what his desires dictate. Whether the faith he displays is firmly rooted in his heart, or is it merely on the surface, he will be tested to see whether he will continue to have faith and love of Allah, when in a calamity, as he does when in comfort, whether he will continue to remember and worship Him, if given bounties and comforts of life, as he does when he lives a modest life. Allah will undoubtedly test him to see if his faith, trust and love of Him is unconditional, or is it conditioned upon good health and a comfortable life, free from stress and anxiety. The Prophet of allah sallallahu alayhi wa salam showed us
through his own example, that for a righteous Muslim, this life is a testing ground where he will continue to be tested until he meets Allah. For him. tests will be conducted on earth while he lives and not after he dies. He knows that as soon as death arrives, and he steps into the next world. His tests are over there. He only receives the result of his tests, and enjoys the fruits of the deeds that he committed during a short span of time, called life.

My question is regarding my job. I used to work in a PR firm or regulation firm and I was the account manager. And part of my job was to plan events and everything related to the publicity of whatever company comes to us. And some of the events involved entertainment section where we have to provide like, you know, sometimes music sometimes games and stuff like that. Other than that, when you used to have the influencers sharing their stories and Instagram and stuff, we had to pick people who
would show themselves especially female as somebody told me that the job is haram because I am somehow promoting that which is not allowed in Islam. And so I left the job, I just got a new job offer that is again in the same field, but it's about copywriting just giving ideas and sketching ideas. So does it fall into the same category and is my job haram like anything related to advertisement? I just wanted to know that okay, I want to answer inshallah

And your question is, my question is regarding a famous movie from Pakistan who said in one of his interviews, that is pious friends with just some stability Gemma offensive Prophet in his dream so in his last dream, he thought that Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told him about the cure for this Corona virus. That by reading try Surah fathia tried to rake
Last and 313 times has been Allah when Yamawaki Allah will protect you from this disease and he also admitted that dream by itself is not an adequate evidence like Quran or Hadith. But if there is any good news given through dream then through implementing it in general it benefits so, if every Muslim does this and there is hope that inshallah they will be protected from this pandemic.

Abdullah from Spain
Okay, I think we don't have Abdullah. So let's start to answer. Jain Allah from Belgium. He says, there are lots of scholars students of knowledge and dairies who are following the men hedge of the self trying to spread Islam and Sunnah and to
counter innovation and deviant sects, what is our role with them? To help them okay, this is very generic. So basically,
as a community, we have to stand by them as long as they are in according to the Quran and Sunnah. back them up, defend them when there is need to be defending them. Help them financially, help them logistically try to promote their Dawa for the sake of Allah azza wa jal and to tell you the truth
I am doing would not have come to the surface, had it not been for the favor and blessing of Allah alone.
the handful of volunteers who are doing tremendous efforts and work
in my YouTube channel on my website, designing them, the brothers in Bahrain who re furbished and redesigned my website, free for the sake of Allah. They don't charge a penny and they do this
anticipating the reward, and they do it for the sake of Allah azza wa jal if all those who called to Allah, according to the Quran, sunnah. Were fortunate to have such support Wallahi we would be in a better place, providing that we don't blindly follow the chef in Whatever Simon says, No, we have to
cross examine whatever he says and does with the Quran and Sunnah. We don't give people more than their actual size, so that they won't be deviated inevitably by overpraising them. So there are different means of support, businessmen can support. Those with good management skills can support those with PR abilities can support and help the cause. And everyone in his own field can support
to spread this data and to defend it. Amina from Russia. She says, Oh, she asks about a general problem that women face. The hadith is crystal clear. The Prophet said I assume Whoever fasts Ramadan, meaning the full 30 days, then follows that with six days of Chawan then this is as if he has fasted the whole entire year.
Women say okay, we fasted 23 days of Chawan of Ramadan. And we have seven days to make up. Can we delay the seven days? Three Four months later, but fast the six days of Chawan time the answer is no. And it's an issue of dispute.
But I'm inclined to the opinion that says that the Hadith clearly states fasting of Ramadan, you fasted 27 days you did not fast the whole Ramadan you have to finish fasting the full Ramadan whether 29 or 30 days, then fast your six days of Chawan otherwise you will not attain the reward. zubaid from India says he intended to pray Mallory for records. Nobody in his sound mind would do this super.
So most likely you are absent minded. And you started praying mother it without really intending to pray for Raka because nobody does this. Unless you're recently revert don't know the difference between Maghrib and Fajr or the harasser in Asia.
So then during the first two records, he realized that malaria was three records. So he's changed his intention. Your prayer is valid and a no problem and that Shaban from India says there's a renowned mufti, they're saying that his friends so a dream where the prophet came to him and told him about the remedy of COVID-19 and he told him to repeat certain sewers and certain Vickers and say all of this, this is nonsense. And such a move thing should not be qualified to be a Mufti. When you depend on dreams, tomorrow, you will have a dream that says to you that overthrow your government or do this or do that initial Yeah, dreams can be true can be a sign from this is not
true. Our deen is complete the remedies are complete. Allah says Allah yo MacMall Tula Kadena come work mem to Allah come near me it will be it will accompany Islam Medina today I've completed your religion, and I perfected my blessing upon you and accepted and I'm pleased with Islam to be your religion. Nobody can come and say with dreams or had a dream you should divorce your wife. It's a good dream. It's a good dream. No, it's not. These are all from Shaytaan so it's such a movie it should not be listened to. Rafa says that his friend plays the guitar and he's the cause of it. And the guitar is his or is he sinful? Of course you are. It's your guitar. Take it back. Once you take
it back, back, break it into pieces. Your sinful for every tune he plays and every time he plays
is because you taught him and the guitar is yours. If you repented from teaching him, but your guitar is still with him, you are still sinful for that. Miss ba says her job was to promote events and to be engaged in entertainments, which had music free mixing, influentials, advertising for their events, which also was theirs was not abiding by the hijab, etc. And she has a nother proposal or an a job offer to do the same. But in regards of enlightening people in informing them about copyrights and the value of it
Misbah if your job
will involve haram, it is haram, and the income is haram. Even if the cause is legitimate. The cause is to defend copyrights as good. copyrights are my right, you're right, he's right. You're defending that. But if you use music, or women or influentials, who are a piece of with all due respect, nothing but their influencers because they have two 20 million followers, who made them famous, the 20 million imbeciles following them. These people do not deserve to be influencers. They're nothing but c'est la vie. So when you recruit someone like this, you endorse what they the crap they with all due respect, they publish and share with others, you are collaborating with them on sin. And
Allah says in the beginning of Chapter Five certain metadata I want to eligibility with taqwa, collaborate on righteousness, and piety and do not collaborate on sins and vices and
evil things. So, this is an instruction of Allah. Therefore, if your job description includes such tasks that you have to decline it let's see from Bangladesh.
He is a student and he has saved money, who is obliged to give zakat and feta?
As long as your father is your guardian, and he provides for you the three meals he is the one to pay it, not you. Mohamed from the US, he says, is the Night of Decree Laila to other a must to be on odd days or or can it be on even days? The answer is it can be on odd days and it can be on even days, because we cannot tell which days are even and which days are odd, until we finish the month. Because if the month is 30 days, then it is obvious that it is 2123 2527 29.
But if it is, there is 29 days, but if it is 30 days, then it's obvious that it is 2224 2628 and this is why In another Hadith, Allah the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
try to detect Leila, Leila two other for three nights left, five nights left seven nights left meaning from the end, not from the beginning. But share we don't know whether the month is going to be 29 or 30. So we can tell when it is three nights left until we know it is Is it 29 or 30? In this case, the possibility is there that the odd nights are 2224 2628 etc, depending on when the the month ends. Do we have one more color or should we just call it a night?
So I think that with this we should drop our episode. This is all we have for tonight until we meet tomorrow night waiting Allah azza wa jal and tomorrow, by the way, is our last segment where we will conclude the evening Allah azza wa jal, the most authentic, Beautiful Names of Allah subhanaw taala that we know. So until then, I will leave you fear Manila has Salam Alikum warahmatu Allahi wa barakato.
