hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah al Karim while and he was hobby woman is standing by bissonnet e. Li Ahmed Dean.
All praises due to a law and realize Peace and blessings beyond the last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.
This is the seventh session
of our series in the names of Allah
and in this session we'll be looking at name number eight I Salaam.
The name of Salaam
is only found once in the whole Quran.
Al Malik who could do Salah surah hasher verse 23
once only as a name of allah
but in the derivatives of the name it's found over 140 times
in 16 different derived forms
from us llama to Salaam to Saleem Aslam ease to Al muslimeen, etc. All of these are derivatives from
a Salaam. linguistically the Divine Name As salam comes from the trilateral route seen Lam Meem
whose verbal nouns Salah Mattoon and Salah moon
have three basic meanings. The first main meaning
is to be peaceful content and tranquil
The second meaning is to be free from imperfections.
And the third meaning
is to be safe, secure, and well. So all of these represent different groups of meanings based on the verbal nouns, which form the foundation for the name as salaam.
When the greeting salaam aleikum is given,
it means that one is informing the other, the one to whom we're giving salaams. We're informing them of safety from our side,
and an absence of hostility.
Safety which we may call on from God from Allah, for the individual, for his protection,
linguistically Salaam and Salama. The two verbal nouns I mentioned earlier, relative to a law means the one who is free from all imperfections, he is perfect in his essence.
And in his attributes and actions,
Allah as salaam
is such that it has absolutely no deficiencies.
His creation is safe
from any injustice on his part, well, I have limra book. And your Lord will not oppress anyone. And he will greet the believers when they enter into paradise. And may Allah make us all among them.
Salomon oulun Mel Robbins regime
peace, a greeting from the most graceful and merciful Lord.
Moving on now to application.
And we'll be looking at the application according to the pattern,
or the template set by the 12th century scholar have been bought Paul, from Spain
is four principles. first of which is to adopt where applicable,
that's most direct, this is the most direct way of application is to adopt it.
But as is the case, really, of all of our laws names.
They can't be adopted and applied directly, because human beings are not and cannot be free from imperfections. So how can we be
when we ourselves imperfect, not possible. But we can express that perfection with its limitations in a variety of different ways, which we're going to look at. But I should mention here that there are some people who claim that four Prophet Muhammad SAW Salaam for Ali,
for the prophets outside of his daughter, Fatima, and grandchildren of the prophets, Allah, great grandchildren, etc, etc, who
they refer to as the inflatables
that they were completely free from imperfection.
And they are known as the Shia.
Amongst Sunni Muslims, we also have those who have attributed this imperfection, rejected any imperfection from being attributed to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam
and they consider it a grave crime. To say that the prophets Allah made mistakes. But actually there are verses in the Quran where Allah corrects the Prophet knocks
tells him what you did wasn't right. It wasn't that it should have been that and so on. So on. So their corrections in the Quran recorded in authentic
so, this is an incorrect belief, because people have
elevated the Prophet sallallahu wasallam to the point where he is a demigod who they're praying to worshiping,
then, of course, it doesn't make sense that your God is going to be imperfect. Right? So, this becomes
drive for claiming this perfection.
for Prophet Muhammad wa sallam, which the Quran itself denies and the prophets Allah. He said, All people seek repentance from Allah.
Indeed, I seek repentance from him 100 times daily.
What was he seeking repentance?
is perfect. He has no mistakes is infallible.
What is he seeking repentance for?
Oh, well, you know, is is teaching the oma
how to seek repentance.
This is nonsense. Because it means he's misinforming the oma This is the same issue that I run into time and time again with Christians. Who
when I asked them
so yeah, you're saying okay, Jesus, is God.
God, the Son, God the Father are one.
So who was Jesus praying to? I mean, you haven't recorded in your Gospels.
It says there and different places that Jesus prayed. He prayed.
Who was he calling on?
Oh, God, but how can he be calling on God when he is God? So he's calling on himself. This is like, nonsense.
No, he's showing people how to pray to God.
Well, so what is your Lord's Prayer?
your Lord's Prayer which says,
I begins you know, with Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
goes on that kingdom come, thy will be done, etc, etc, on earth as it is in heaven, so on so
but Our Father
who art in heaven art means who is old English.
why didn't he say
our God, Jesus who is in heaven, He didn't teach people to pray like this.
So their explanation is like these people's explanation that the prophets are Salam was seeking repentance for things that he didn't do.
You know, is asking Allah to forgive him for things he didn't do.
Not that he was supposed to do and he didn't do them. But he just didn't do them because he was he didn't make any mistakes. This confusion
you know, and the prophet SAW Selim told us about the deen what what to keep in mind all the time.
Correct to come Allah Mahajan invader. I've left you on a clear white plane. Laila Kalahari Ha. Whose night is like it's the
nighttime is like daytime, as you can see in the daytime, everything clearly. You can see in the nighttime everything clearly.
As if you had night vision goggles.
Like is your one ha Ilana and whoever deviates from that.
That understanding that clarity that he left behind,
whoever deviates from that will be destroyed. That's the bottom line.
As he said I'll Hallelu by
the halala what is permissible is clear, crystal clear. And what is freedom?
Then is crystal clear while haraam away.
Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam used to seek repentance from Allah daily.
As he said, Indeed, I seek repentance from him 100 times a day.
So, this is something we are encouraged to do.
This is how we part of how we adopt a lot being the pure,
the source of peace and tranquility, etc, is that
turn to Him,
seeking His forgiveness from the things which will cloud and distort and disturb our minds, our soul our thinking.
there was another Hadith,
which shows that if the prophets of Salaam was perfect,
then his good deeds would have been sufficient to take him to paradise. But he said,
do good deeds properly, sincerely, and moderately, don't go to extremes, and receive good news receive this good news.
Because once good deeds will not make him or her into paradise, if it's just dependent on good deeds, whether for us or for profit members, or for any of the prophets,
it wouldn't be enough to get us to paradise. So his companions asked him, even you, or messenger of Allah, even you, he said, even I, unless and until Allah bestows his pardon, and mercy on me,
the wraps me in his pardon, and mercy.
However, even with our imperfections, there is much we can do to implement this Divine Name in our lives.
In the beginning, we can be a source of peace. on a human level, the believer should strive to be a source of peace and security for his or her believing brothers and sisters, as a law is a source of peace and security in his life.
The provinces so let me encourage this saying, I will Muslim man Saleemul Muslim moon and mainly Sunny, he was ready. The true Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands, Muslims are safe.
One from whose tongue and hands, Muslims are safe.
That that's what we should be.
He also said,
shall I tell you who the true believer is
one from whom the people feel secure regarding their wealth, and their persons.
So we don't harm others. In order to do that, we need to have clean hearts.
not jealousy about anybody. Envy,
hatred, dislike etc. A heart should be
free from that.
And there's a well known narration story.
True Story Of course,
of the occasion, when in the prophets on Solomon's mosque,
he and his companions were sitting in a circle, he was teaching them the dean.
And while teaching them, he stopped, he paused
and he said to them, the next person
Walk into the mosque
will be from the people of paradise. Of course, this is not the prophet SAW Selim, knowing the unseen. This was revealed to him. Allah gave him that information. Angel Gabriel whispered in his ear.
So, of course, once he said that, they all turn to look at the gate of the masjid door, the masjid to see who was coming in next.
And in walks this companion Sahabi
my everybody knew him, not maybe by name or whatever, you know, because when the narration was given, they didn't mention a name. It's just a compact. One among is 60,000 or 80,000 when it were existing when he died.
So, they said okay, they looked at him, watch me walked in.
He had water dripping from his beard made will do. He was carrying his sandals in his hands.
Then he went put them down, made his two Raka which were supposed to make when we enter the masjid. And then he went over and sat with the
circle of the Prophet. So
they said, okay,
Allah knows best. We don't know why, you know, he, he's not abubaker is not Omar's, the people who are famous and everything. But, you know, amongst us was well known, you know. But if you say so,
the next day
in the darkness, the lesson that he was giving,
and said, the next person who's coming in the masjid will be from the people of paradise.
Okay, that's somebody else coming now. All right. So they're all looking waiting to see the next person is going to walk in.
And in walks the same companion, okay.
He did the same thing, join them.
The dust went on
the third day.
Rob starts at lemans, giving his lessons teaching the companions.
And he pauses. Lecture stopped and told them again.
The next person coming in will be from the people of Paradise, they all look
waiting, in walks the same companion.
So behind Allah,
if you can't get a more affirmative
prop proclamation of the prophesize alum about somebody's going to paradise, because he only had the authority based on what Allah had revealed to him to say that this person is going to provide us with that person, one pilot. We know he did mention this about other companions on other occasions. But anyway, this occasion, all three times it was this individual.
So one of the companions, younger companion.
What he did was after the divorce was over and people were leaving, he went up to him. And he said the same man who did know the name specifically with cabana. He said, Listen,
you know, I had had an altercation with my father and
he kicked me out of the house. I had to the Can I stay a few nights with you, please. So treasure
took him into his home with him
ate with them. went to sleep at night.
It's young combined, and he got up to make 100
and he didn't seem crazy.
Make 1000 Okay.
Then great fighter and
he did this for like,
he said this.
Actually, I told you a story.
There was no problem with my father.
I just wanted to know
what you were doing
that made you among the people of Paradise, of course companions saying what what do you mean, among the people of paradise? So that's what the prompts are. Someone said, you're going to be among the people of paradise. So, but I didn't see you getting up and praying in the middle of the night.
I didn't see you fasting every day or you know, I didn't see anything special. You just like the rest of us. He said, but what you saw is what I am. That's me.
So Oh, except one thing, that before I go to sleep at night,
I made sure that I don't have anything in my heart against anyone.
No bad feelings, hatred, you know,
make sure that I go to sleep at night. Free from that
is the uncombined Ah, that's it. That's the one that you know, most of us cannot do. It's just impossible. These things are stuck in our hearts and we can't remove it you know. So I love
this illustrated the value
and is a true story illustrated the value of
purifying the heart cleaning ones
from these feelings. And there are a lot of tells us in the Quran
that we should not
hold in our hearts
in feeling towards the believer,
we should strive to purify our hearts. Strong striving to clean our hearts of bad feelings and thoughts
is something we all can do.
Though the companions said, it's very difficult. It is difficult, but we can do it. It is important because Allah informed us that having a relatively clean heart is the only thing that will benefit us on the Day of Judgment.
If our hearts are free from major defects, will be welcomed by a law who said in the Koran Surah assura yo my lion, Pharaoh Malou, while I've been in lamb and at our law, will call when Sally
a day when neither money nor children will be of any benefit except one who comes to Allah with a pure heart and the term use this Saleem
from Salam from Sallam
in order to further stress the importance of having a clean heart. The prophet SAW Selim said, Indeed, Allah does not look at your faces
or your wealth, but he looks into your hearts
he looks at your deeds
in the same way that we are alert,
concerned regarding our physical diseases, we should constantly assess the condition of our hearts
for diseases like lying, backbiting, swearing, hypocrisy, jealousy, showing off and all these other things and we should seek cures from them in the Quran and the Sunnah, as all that matters, is that we meet Allah
as salaam, with a sound heart.
the Divine Name As salam.
We do so also by turning to Allah for peace,
the belief that peace, safety and
wellbeing comes only from Allah further encourages the believer to turn to a law for peace of mind, and contentment.
Peaceful minds and hearts cannot be bought with the wealth of this world.
It can only be earned by submitting ourselves to Allah.
As the Almighty said
alladhina amanu. We're talking about in Hulu, boom, the decree let.
It is only with the remembrance of Allah,
that hearts find rest. Allah basically lay top my enamel kulu.
That's the 13th chapter, verse 28.
Whereas people constantly chasing after materialistic means,
like sex, drugs and rock and roll to fulfill their desires for contentment and peace, enjoyment to feel pleased. Many of those with the means to have overdoses of these pleasures end up committing suicide.
However, piece from other than a law brings with it turmoil, confusion and dissatisfaction. It's only peace for a while.
You had a famous German industrialists some years back billionaire
among the richest people in the world,
had a deficit or
a reduction in his profits, significant reduction. back a few years back when there was a crash in the stock market, he lost
So what did he do?
to the train track, lay on there and had the trade run over
Now, he had
fought his way from nothing. He didn't inherit wealth and build on it. He came from zero. He worked like a madman throughout his life until he gained this wealth.
And then he lost a chunk of it a big chunk. But what he had left was the bigger chunk.
And when we're talking about billions, you know, you can't spend that kind of money, even if you try it.
But for him, the loss, all that he could focus on was the loss of all of this effort, he made the losses. He couldn't focus on what he had, and be thankful for it couldn't, because he lacked that connection,
that connection with God, which would give him that sense of peace, peace of mind, peace of heart,
peace of soul
the end result was
suicide. like Japan, Japan, one of the most industrialized countries on the face of the earth, the rate of suicide there is the highest in the world.
Incredible. Wonder what what is this?
The pressures of the society is so great.
You know, just to get your kids in kindergarten, they have examinations and you know, so people are preparing their kids from
from the time they can say a word. That's it. They're, you know, putting words in their heads and kind of prepare them because they have examinations and those who get the top marks in the examinations get it.
Those who don't, don't.
We can further find peace
by surrendering ourselves submitting ourselves to a law
and this is really the only way to be secure and experience the peaceful trend.
Quality which comes with the connection with Allah.
If we submit by truly accepting Islam, we will be granted a laws Salaam
peace of mind and heart. The believers should always follow the guidance revealed by Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and do the required actions to make peace a reality in both this life and the next, as Allah said, there is fruit for them.
And for them is whatever they wish, peace, a word, from a merciful Lord.
We should continually remind ourselves of Daraa Salaam, the abode of peace, not that a Salaam in Tanzania.
I've been there. It's a nice place, but the real dar Salam
Jana, so that we will strive harder to do as many good deeds as possible, in order to receive the Salam of Allah and be safe and secure in his garden. That's
one of the practical ways also is spreading peace greetings in our communities, gatherings,
This is a very practical way of implementing the Divine Name
as salaam in our lives.
For it to be a source of peace for others, we're helping others achieve.
Consequently, the prophet SAW Selim encouraged his followers to greet each other frequently, using this Divine Name, and made the return of greetings and obligation on the believers, saying, you will not enter Paradise until you believe.
And you will not believe until you love each other.
Shall I not guide you to something which, if you did it, you will love each other,
spread the greetings of peace among yourselves.
So he gave this General Instruction and these peace greetings.
This is not something new, meaning that the promise or Salam came up with this. You know, it's been around for
1000s of years.
If we look into the scriptures of the Jews and the Christians, you will find mention of this
where for example, Jesus is reported to have greeted his followers saying Peace be upon you.
In Hebrews salaam aleikum sounds like us, Salaam Alaikum.
In chapter 20, verse 19,
the anonymous author of the Gospel According to john wrote, The following about Jesus after his suppose crucifixion,
Jesus said to them again, peace be with you, as the Father has sent me, even so, I send you.
And in the Old Testament, you can find in the first Samwell 25 verse six, Prophet David is reported to have instructed his emissaries whom is sent to novel
and thus you shall salute them, Peace be to you,
and Peace be to your house, and Peace be to all that you have.
So the spreading of peace greetings is important.
And then universal and universal Islamic custom, which bonds is society together. It is so important that the prophet SAW Selim even gave details as to the protocol of giving Greetings, in order for it not to be confined to the commenters. Reading the nobles, in order to avoid confusion as to who should give greetings first, etc.
Our era could relate to
The province on sentiment said
the young should greet the elders with peace, young in respect to the elders, they should be the ones to give the greeting first the passer by should give the one sitting, somebody were fixed, somebody comes in on us walking by, he or she is the one to give the greetings first. And the smaller group,
which comes in contact with a larger group should give the greetings to the larger group.
And He further said the one who's writing should read the one who is walking, you're riding by on your bicycle, somebody is taking a walk.
It's on you to give the greeting first. And the one walking should greet the one sitting. That is similar to the second point.
He also added another factor to overcome sticky circumstances when protocol isn't followed.
Like when elders should greet youngsters, but they don't do it. They don't they feel these are little kids. What do I need to give them Salah they're the ones who should be giving me sir.
But they happen to be in a situation where they're passing by and the younger guys are sitting there or whatever. So the circumstance required them.
He provided a positive profits outside and provided a positive way out of that type of situation by praising the superiority of the one who gives greetings. First,
I will mama quoted the process or am I saying indeed the best people to Allah in the sight of Allah are those who are first to greet with peace.
Those who are first, they get the greatest reward.
And to overcome people's reluctance to greet those who they don't know. The broadside Sallam said that among the best actions is to do this. feeding the hungry
is among the best actions and saying salaams to those you know, and those whom you do not know,
is amongst the best actions.
In terms of the companions,
is noted. They were described by their students
as being so eager to give greetings that if they were walking together in a group, and a tree
came between them, they had to go somewhere on one side, some of the other side. When they came back together again, they used to give salons to each other all over again.
Well, for non Muslims living amongst Muslims, they sometimes find this annoying.
working in an office, for example, people coming into the office and giving salons over and over again, everybody comes into our icons comes in. So our echo.
In other societies,
you give the greetings once in the morning, one time that's it. But Muslims, they come in gifts around the God or the office, they come back in again. So again, want something else they come back in, so they come. So
it's not surprising to
find them annoyed by it. Because they're not used to it. It's not their practice to do this.
However, they don't understand that this greeting is in fact spreading good feelings amongst us.
Because the greeting of course is only rewardable if it's done properly. And it should be done with a smile as well. So sentiment said that smiling to your brother or sister is sadhaka.
So when we're giving Greetings, you know we shouldn't be giving it and frowning.
We should be smiling when giving it
when a person greets you and smiles, it makes you feel better.
You know it brings a smile to your face. So it's
A good thing
we do is Salaam is even enshrined in the Muslim code of ethics in the Sharia itself,
saying Salaam is one of the rights of a Muslim over his fellow Muslim, as the province on Salaam said, a Muslim has five rights over his fellow Muslim.
The first is he should return his salons.
The obligation is the returning of Salah it's not an obligation to say salaams first, it's commendable, rewardable best,
but at least
what is an obligation is somebody gives you salaams you should return those alarms.
And in general,
if we want Salam security, protection of a law, who is a salon,
we shouldn't oppress ourselves by doing wrong to others.
doing wrong in our relationship with Allah,
who is a salon?
We should avoid being unjust.
We wrong ourselves by sitting and not fulfilling the rights of others.
The rights of Allah
among the rights of others, its obedience, parents, protecting the honors, honor of others, helping the needy and so on. So by not doing that, we are
destroying our state.
We're taking the Baraka, the blessing away from our state of Salaam.
And the process alum taught us that immediately after our formal prayers is five times a day. We're encouraged to ask protection and safety from Allah for the mistakes that we committed in the salon. Rosa Lim said
Oh, it was important that the prompts I said I'm used to say regularly I stopped federal law. I asked for a loss forgiveness three times. And then he would say, Allah home anta Salah
Well, minca salam, Tabarak, then Jelani one crown,
all Allah, you are peace, and peace comes from you. May you be blessed.
Owner of glory and peace and grace.
So we should
utilize this to our sponsors Allah
himself did, it didn't specifically tell us to do it. So it's not like a obligation or anything like that. But the fact that he did it regularly is something we should add in our repertoire of
prayers supplications etc.
Now going on to point to have you been backhaul, which is confirm were unique and in aplicable.
Giving salaams to Allah.
Is this applicable, praying for the prophet SAW Salaam, not to him by sending salaams on him,
saying for example, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and up upon the prophets and the righteous same alayhis salam,
or LA ha I salam, o la hemos Salaam.
All of that
Allah Almighty does in the Quran, and it is a commendable act. However, we should not say
As salam o Allah, Allah
salaams Allah, because he is a Salah. He doesn't need security and safety because he is the source of peace and perfection.
I'm delighted in my throat related that
Initially when they prayed behind the Prophet sallallahu sallam,
they used to say, as salaamu other law, Peace be to Allah.
The Prophet says,
Stop them and said, Indeed, Allah is the Restore of peace. So, say instead a dahiya to be nahi Salatu Bhai, but
we know this
is became the Shahada in our prayers. So, it is inappropriate
for us, to give salaams to Allah, we seek Salaam from him.
We ask him to help us and put Salaam in our lives
with spread and Salaam, amongst us, amongst our neighbors, families, etc.
So we may
suggest or pray or supplicate
asking that Salaam
be given to each other. Salaam Alaikum.
This is our basic reading.
But not Salaam, Allah.
The third principle of avian backhaul was to have hope, where there is a promise in the name.
belief in Allah has freedom from any defects ensures the believer that he or she will not be denied the fruit of their sacrifices to avoid the forbidden in this life.
As the problems are solved, I'm informed that the believer has to live in a self imposed prison in this life. While the disbelievers are free to do whatever they wish
Abou eriko to the process element saying
This world is a prisoner for the believers.
What Jen little cafe and paradise for the disbelievers.
Of course it is a self made prison.
And this self made prison is actually a protective shield from a world caught in the grasp of Satan and his followers.
They're tricking and deluding the masses.
as Adam and Eve were deluded, in the beginning of our journey on Earth, the same methods which he used to deceive Adam and Eve is using them now.
same methodology, nothing new.
So, what is on us?
is to be patient in times of drought, because
that's the nature of our lives.
Ma sabalan we'll see but in Ellerbee, isn't it that no disaster strikes except by the permission of Allah.
Who may my yup men Billa Yeah, the palomba and whoever believes in Allah, Allah will guide his heart. So that's what we seek.
So we have to show patience and perseverance and hard times because it's a part of life.
And Allah Salam
will give us peace inside
it will be peace inside our hearts, sight our minds inside our soul. giving us a feeling of well being serenity and peace.
With that, we'll close our session
calling on Allah using this name.
Oh Allah as salaam.
We affirm that all peace and safety comes
From you alone,
protect us and provide us with safety in this world and the next
guidance to patients and inner peace and make us among those from whom others are safe
and make us safe from the injustice of others
adorn us with sound hearts,
peaceful hearts, pure hearts, and make us among those who have blessed to receive your salaams
in Paradise, I mean
Barack a lot of people
so I why they come to lie about a cattle
our questions and answers q&a.
But as usual, I am reminding you again to reflect on what we're going to break our fast with today.
What will you eat for supper?
A majority of us can easily answer this question.
But there are young children starving among the row hinga from Burma, and the Uighur Muslim communities from China. In this Ramadan you can help them through charity right.
In order to feel the child for a whole year. All you have to do is raise $150 with the help of your family and friends. So simple $150
please pledge today to become one of the 1000 people across the world who will take on this global challenge for the sake of Allah.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW Salah mad said
the best of you are those who feed others. So will you become the best of us this Ramadan
it takes only one minute to sign up, but the rewards are eternal.
So please click the link on the video description and sign up now. Right now.
So now I need
to lie here very cattle. My dear brothers and sisters
will now shift to our cue q&a.
The first question we have from Faisal Ali. And Faisal seems to be the first everyday very conscientious Mashallah.
His question is
in the lecture of the blind heart
Okay, this is way off the topic now. The blind heart Yes, I did this lecture some time back.
That what heart is mentioned in the Quran is not the actual heart which plumps up which pumps blood
it is the soul
and it resides
in the place of the heart. Do you have any evidence
to you asking me if I have evidence?
reality is what
do we have
We have heart transplants I'm sure you're gonna say Yeah, we do.
Somebody else's heart can be put in our heart.

Safer rock man asks, what happens to people who are cremated?
How does the punishment of the grave work for them?
we have to understand that
the grave is the state of the grid.
It's the state of the grid,
not the actual physical grid.
Our brother would ask, where's the evidence for that? Who says it's not the actual grave?
if it's the actual grave, then it means you will escape the punishment of the grave by being buried at sea.
What do you think about that, or by being buried on the moon?
To The Moon, they're planning to set up colonies on the moon by 2020. For

if he gave her the whole
bouts, he was alive, he gave it to her.
He said it's my gift to you.
It's written or something is evidence that he has given the home to the wife, then it's hers and the story.
But if there's no evidence to indicate that then when he dies, his wealth has to be divided up according to the system that the law has set. So now she can negotiate with their children.
