This is session number eight.
And in this session, we'll be looking at the ninth name in our series to complete the 99 Names of Allah.
That nines name is the grantor of security and movement.
And it is found only once in the Quran. In surah, Allah hashtag verse 23,
and molekule could do so salaamu
the Sovereign, the holy restore of peace, and the grantor of security
in terms of its meaning, linguistically, the Divine Name and movement comes from the trilateral root, Hamza meme known
and is derived from two verbal nouns. And I bet they're called musters
and a man.
These two verbal nouns have five basic meanings. The first meaning is to be secure, to be safe and free from fear.
And the second is to be quiet and tranquil.
The third meaning is to grant protection and to safeguard
the fourth is to be trustworthy. And the fifth meaning is to believe in
this root appears, while only appearing once as the name of the movement.
In its derived forms, it appears 879 times in the class
and it has
17 different derived forms. Examples of some of these forms is the verb I mean to
you plural, Aminu
I might not the trusts
I mean, trustworthy.
He man faith.
Me known will be beavers. These are just a few of the 17 examples of derived forms. But relative to Allah this Divine Name means the one who assures His creatures that he will not deal with them unjustly.
It also means
the Restore of security from his punishment
Same movement, which means a believer, as we have Muslim and we have movement, it's the same word. But in a laws context, obviously, it goes beyond
being a believer, because what does the law have to believe it? it's we who have to believe.
So as I said,
it is an assurance He is the one who assures His creatures that he will not deal with them on justly
gives them that sense of security, that's the giver or the Restore of security.
And he also provides, through that name, assurance
of security from his punishment for those who have striven to follow his way.
As I said in Surah, number, verse 89,
Mangia or bill Hasina, follow who hi Ron minha
wahome min father in yoma, Eden, Aminu, whoever brings a good deed will have better than it in reward, and they will be secure from the terror on the Day of Judgment.
Now according to emit inbound calls for principles of application, the first is to adopt where applicable.
The Divine Name and movement can be applied
can be applied by having full faith that is a man in laws plan,
our belief in the law combined with action by following the laws, commands and avoiding his prohibitions,
we will receive His protection and security in this world and the next.
If we do that,
whoever brings a good deed will have better than it.
That is the promise of law.
So read the Koran, this is the month of the Quran Ramadan,
we should read the Quran regularly reading it with contemplation and reflection, and give sadaqa
and focus our prayers, so that Allah Luqman
will give us safety on the Day of Judgment.
So this much we can apply, we are not able to apply the ultimate meaning
that is relative to a law.
We cannot assure
the creatures of Allah that we won't deal with them on justly we are human beings and we make mistakes.
we should also understand in terms of application of the name,
that we should have a firm belief that a law is the source of security. This is what we can have a law provides a security and we should have a firm belief that
he is the source.
And that belief should give us
courage to face the inevitable trials that we all will face in trying to live Islam and to convey it to others.
As the law of protected the prophets
and the believers of the past
is more than capable of protecting the believers in future generations.
We know that Allah gave Prophet Moses his mother, security from Pharaoh,
from what she feared the most. She put her baby Moses in a basket in the Nile in the water
and turned her a fear over to Allah. Of course, she's receiving commandment. She's receiving inspiration
and Allah returned her
A child to her to be raised by her.
Who would have expected that? She certainly didn't. Allah gave Prophet Abraham security from the fire.
The fire into which his own father and his tribe, were throwing him
that should have been the end of it all.
But Allah protected him, gave him
protection from the fire itself.
gave him that position, that miracle, which would impact on his people to carry the message from Allah to them.
And of course, the story of the boy and the king, well known story found in Surah MOOC
where the king sought to kill a young man
who Allah had given certain knowledge.
But in the end, he failed, failed in stopping what the young man strove to do. He gave his life to carry that message forward.
Similarly, for the future Prophet Mohammed sallam, he informed that with the help of a law that would come at the end of time, to save Prophet Jesus and his followers,
when they had faced the final of the major tests, the tests of
the gaag and the Magog
where there seemed to be no means knows, no way to survive their attack, the global attack,
Allah read the earth of them.
So we should believe
and trust in the promises of Allah,
as he is a movement.
Believing in this Divine Name can practically be applied by believing that the promise of Allah
will always come true.
We should have that firm faith,
trust. For example, His promise is that sadaqa will not decrease wealth.
That's a promise. Physically, we see sadhaka decreasing wealth. But if Allah has told us,
that sadaqa will not decrease wealth through His Messenger,
then we should give sadaqa believing in and feeling secure, that our wealth will not be decreased.
So it is trust in in laws promise.
That gives us a sense of security in this life and we live in a life where there are things happening all the time.
And if we focus on all the different issues and problems and things that are happening all around the world, you know, we could go mad.
So we have to be focused.
And if we focus on Allah and movement,
this will give us that sense of security, to
be able to overcome all of the challenges around us.
And Allah told us as a reminder of this,
that the people of Paradise will say, Alhamdulillah Allah, the solder, solder, solder panna Wada,
Alhamdulillah Allah the sakana word. All praise and thanks are due to Allah
who fulfilled his promise to us.
Those who enter Paradise will all affirm that.
So given that understanding, we should always ask
for security in the different difficulties
That we find ourselves.
The Divine Name I mean affirms to the believers that Allah is the only source of security.
So we should ask him to grant safety and security whenever needed.
As the province outside Lam said,
when they were in the cave,
and it seemed like
they would be caught,
the prophet SAW some would be killed.
The prophets I send them turned
to aboubaker and said, lotta zen, in La la hamana.
Do not be afraid.
Don't be sad.
Surely Allah is with us.
That sort of Toba, verse 40.
So no matter how difficult situations may get,
we should have in our hearts, a lot of confidence and firm faith, that if we turn to
the provider of security, he will provide peace and security in whatever circumstances we may find ourselves.
We should also take care of what has been given to us as trusts what what trust what things have been given to us, that we are expected to look after protect, preserve.
The Divine Name movement is implemented by making sure that we don't harm others by taking their wealth
and their honor.
can do so through backbiting and slander.
take control of our selves in all aspects, so as not to harm others. As the prophet SAW Solomon said,
a lot of miracle movement.
Shall I not tell you who the true believer is?
The prophet SAW Salem
used a variety of different techniques.
in teaching his companions,
he could have just told them who the believers, the believers, so and so and so on so
but instead, he asked them
shall I do this? Or not for them to say?
Yeah, we think it's good. Oh, no, no, not now. Later? No.
He's just using that to catch their attention.
Man, amen. Amen. Amen.
Man, amen. Oh, and NASS, Allah, I'm wiling him while I'm forcing.
One from whom the people feel secure regarding their wealth and their persons.
Man, Amana goodness, Allah, I'm watching him while forcing him.
So this is a characteristic of the true believer that people feel secure around him. They're not worrying. What's he gonna do next? He might take this or he might say that or
with regards to Muslims.
The prophets Allah also said, describe the movement, the believer, that's the higher level of the Muslim. And then for the Muslim he said, I'll Muslim men Saleemul Muslim una mainly Santa he weirdy. The true Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands, Muslims are safe.
This sense of safety and security. That's how Muslims should feel with regards to us.
Not just Muslims, of course. Everybody, but primarily Muslims amongst Muslims. They should feel that sense of
safety and security. And to a large degree This is found all over the Muslim world.
And the prophet SAW seller also said the believer is one whom people would entrust
Their blood and their wealth.
So this sense of trust.
this is reflected in the fact that Prophet Mohammed Salam was nicknamed It was called, I mean, the trustworthy one by his people due to his honesty, and he is the best of examples for us. So, being honest and trustworthy.
This is an aspect of application of the name of the movement in our lives.
So, likewise, if we implement the Divine Name, by returning whatever has been entrusted to us, what we what is called the amanat
return, returning them as we as we received it.
what is expected of us
if we believe in a law of movement.
And this includes not only borrowed items, but includes keeping secrets entrusted to us, or whatever no katabi had said,
if your brother mentioned something to you in private, then walks away. It is an Amana a trust
for you to look after,
even if he didn't instruct you, not to inform anyone.
This is the general principle. From the
you could say the character, which the Shetty seeks to build,
then amongst the trusts that we need to look after, is the body which Allah has given us, we exist as a soul within a body.
We didn't make this body, we came into the world, in a body,
a body that was
destined by a law, we had no choice in the matter, our parents had no choice in the matter.
So this is what we have. And we implement the Divine Name.
By taking good care of our bodies,
our bodies are also an Amana, I trust,
different from what was loaned to us, we borrowed or whatever
this body was given to us by law. But obviously, we can't take it with us when we leave.
But as a trust, which Allah has given to us, he gave it to us to look after, not to abuse, misuse, etc.
So we should make every effort possible to use it in the right way.
And also ensure that we don't put
trash, junk food etc, into our bodies, because that's not going to
take care of it, that's not going to
protect it, that's going to harm it.
So we should exercise regularly
to keep fit. And we should feed our bodies, the best foods available to our movement, a lot of movement, the giver of security,
the one who we can trust on trusting
its implications are so wide.
All the way to the bodies, most of us don't even think about it.
the Divine Name or movement should be called upon to bless us with faith even
until our last breath and to adorn us with the necessary characteristics of the movement of the believers as mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah.
And, in turn, we should study these features so we can work on it.
when we are afraid, we should turn to our movement for safety.
And when our faith becomes low, we should ask him, to strengthen it.
Because he is the one who can remove fear and increase our faith.
This has to do with
our connection with a lot smarter than
most of us. When we're faced with these issues,
we turn everywhere, but to Allah.
And of course, whatever we turn to, it may provide us temporary, fleeting
We may feel a faith booster, you feel boosted.
We attend a conference, we watch a lecture may feel our faith boosted. But for it to last, it has to be a connection with a lot. We have to make that connection.
Principle number two, which imaam even Paul taught for the application of the Divine Names is to confirm were unique and in applicable.
Divine with the Divine Name and movement requires us to believe that Allah is the only real source of security and that
that should give the believer courage to face all trials that he or she will face while trying to leave Islam and to convey to others. trust in Allah in this way should protect the believer from falling into the same
satanic traps of fortune telling witchcraft etc.
which people have fallen over the the generations
where promises of security
through knowledge of the future is offered to them.
It's big business
televisions, in the States and Canada
have fortune tellers coming on on a regular basis. Now, before it was something more hidden away, you know, small
Now it's right open to the old society, you want to reading the cards, tarot cards, etc. TV leaves, whatever
knowledge of the future is being offered. And of course, when you have knowledge of the future, you feel secure. I know this is going to happen.
But reality is that it's fake. It's trickery.
So the bottom line is that Allah has protected the profits of the believers of the past.
He is more than capable to protect the believers of any age, in any location. And under any situation. Elia is the one who can provide us with that security.
So, having that confidence, that clear faith, this will give us a sense of security, which is not dependent on
others in this world.
The third principle,
the principle that where
there is a
in the name
that we should have hope.
scholar the 12th century in Spain had been blackballed.
had advised in order to apply the name in our lives,
see if there is a promise in it.
And then if there is a promise in one way, or shape or form, we should take from that hope.
Because that's where the believers hearts should be should be hoping for the best. The believer is an optimist, not a pessimist,
so the believers should reflect on a large firm promise of security as a reward for their sincere belief in him, and movement, which kept them far from all forms of shidduch and idolatry.
alladhina amanu Well, let me I'll be su
imana home with blue, hula ecola homeowners.
those who believed
and did not pollute their faith with idolatry. This is the ship a little more than Avi will have security and rights guidance. That is the promise of Allah.
The Divine Name Walkman contains a divine promise of continued security, which becomes obvious when we reflect on the many blessings of security and safety in most of our lives.
That reality should build hope in our hearts and souls that it will continue. Yes, there are places of turmoil, whether Syria, Yemen, Burma, Palestine, etc. However, the vast majority of humankind live in security, that's the bottom line.
And even the people in insecure areas shouldn't be thankful that it's not worse than it is. Because no matter how bad your situation is, there's somebody else who is in worse.
So instead, we should be thankful and hope that things will get better. That's the better frame of mind to be an ally reminded the Arabs of the Arabian Peninsula, in the neighborhood of the Kaaba of their generations of security. From the time a bra came and tried to destroy the Kaaba, and a lot of protected it.
A lot of said there and sort of Quraysh fairly abou proper hardened bait led up to Amazon manure for Manor home will
let them worship the Lord of this house, who has fed them, saving them from hunger and made them safe, saving them from fear.
The fourth principle, which had been bubble outline,
was that we should have fear where the name contains a warning. Now the Divine Name and movement doesn't contain a warning
in and of itself. Instead, it is focused on the great benefit and reward for implementing the Divine Name.
However, there is a subtle, hidden warning for its opposite.
The great punishment and humiliation for its opposite
the lack of application of the Divine Name in our lives.
The prophets Allah warned his followers of the dire consequences for denying our neighbors security through ill treatment.
greed and other negative characteristics whether they are Muslims or non Muslims.
Abu huraira quoted the promises element saying liard hold on Jana, man Leia men.
Jara, who bought
one whose neighbor is not safe from his harm will not enter Paradise. It is that serious.
That is the ultimate punishment.
The promise, I sell them all
Also, on another occasion he repeated three times while law he lived.
While law he lived while law he Nyoman, this process I'm teaching in a different way. By a law, he does not believe you just repeated that three times. And of course, that's gonna catch the attention of the companions. And they asked, Who is he? Who are you referring to a messenger of Allah. He said, I lead the lion men jeru. Baba is
the one who's harm
his neighbor is not safe.
The one from whose harm his neighbor is not safe.
On the other hand, the Divine Name and movement places great stress
on neighborliness, as it is the foundation of community
and the real basis for security in society.
Everyone is a neighbor to someone
or has someone as his or her neighbor.
Even the recent trial
of George Floyd,
it was the community
that came to his aid. As the police took his life.
They spoke out they called out.
They recorded it. And because of their efforts,
the officer who was the kneading, criminal,
in his case, was brought to justice.
hamdulillah that's a good move. Of course, in a Muslim community.
People would not stand by and just say, well, don't do it. It's not good, john. So they're going to jump in.
They're going to get involved. They're going to stop it. And that's what Muslims should do. They have the means they should stop it.
As promised, as animate said men are I mean, c'mon Curran, file, your IRB ad, whoever sees an evil should stop it with his or her hand. If that's what you're able to do, you can do because of your numbers or your strength or whatever. It's on you, it's an obligation on you to stop that evil.
So the prophet SAW Solomon said,
Whoever believes in Allah on the last day should either say good things or Be quiet, be kind to his neighbors, or neighbors, and hospitable to his or her guests.
So this right, this virtue
of kindness to neighbors, care for neighbors is essential for the safe and smooth running of any society. On kindness to neighbors breeds hatred. And our willingness to share one's bounties breeds jealousy because the profit because of that, the profits are solid and said, If you cook broth, soup,
use plenty of water, visit a family in your neighborhood and pour some for them.
And the province was on another occasion mentioned that the importance of looking after your neighbors was emphasized to him so much. He said gibreel continued to advise me about neighbors until I thought that he would make them
one of my ears, make them recipients of
wealth left behind
as children etc share in the inheritance, they would be one of the inheritors.
And there was a case back in the 80s
This is London, England.
A woman screamed for help for 25 minutes.
This newspaper article I'm reading for you
as she was raped,
battered and strangled in London late Friday night.
But her neighbors said they did nothing because fighting and screams are frequent their
police in his LinkedIn district said
They were called Saturday morning, when children going out to play found the body in a pool of blood outside and apartment block
on the de boire estate.
The woman as yet on de identified was so badly beaten that police could only estimate her age at between 15 and 30.
Robert Wareham 25 years old, who lives in the block of apartments, told the reporter she was calling Help Help. It went on for about 25 minutes, then it suddenly cut off completely. I heard no more sounds
to a reporter who asked why he didn't investigate, or at least look out of the window, where I'm said almost every night, there are children roaring and screaming people fighting. It's not at all unusual.
in that era, we're in LA Roger, to live in that kind of a circumstance. It's so sad. Incredible.
But that's what happens when neighborliness
We'll close our session by calling on a law using this name
or law. Yeah, movement. We know that you are the source of faith and the giver of safety.
Bless us with strong faith leaders in taking care of our trust and fulfilling our promises and adorn us with all the characteristics of Your Beloved delivers
granted steadfastness and safety in this world and the hereafter and make us of those who enjoy the ultimate safety of paradise.
Baraka law, lot of people
said why they come to my robot Academy.
We will now shift to our q&a. But before moving on to the q&a. I'd like to ask you that question again. What are you going to break your fast with today?
What will you eat for Soho?
A majority of us can easily answer these questions. But there are young children starving in among the Rohingya and the Uighur Muslim communities. And this Ramadan, you can help them through charity, right?
We can help them. It is that simple. What do we need to do? In order to feed a child for a whole year? All we have to do is raise $150. That's all
give up Snickers for a year
you will have
if we can't give up our Snickers we're so attached to them. Then get your family and friends to help you.
Give up a coffee, give up a drink or whatever, for a year and make it 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 as Alan said,
the best of you are those who feed others.
So will you become the best of us this Ramada?
It only takes one minute to sign up, but the rewards are eternal.
Please click the link in the video description and sign up now.
will now shift to our q&a session
in sha Allah
and what do we have today
from the q&a
We have Faisal Ali,
who says some scholars say, nor is reflected light. And some say it is not reflected light.
your view on this?
Is this a science class?
How did we take this in science? in school?
What is no? What is light, nor just added for light.
But what I suspect is
somebody is trying to take what science says about what is light in this world that we live and
raise issues about Allah saying, Allah will notice some Iwaki without Allah is the light of the heavens and the earth.
This is what being
question. No, we don't need to get into this.
A lot is nor,
nor is a metaphor metaphor for guidance.
Isn't that well known?
light provides a way in darkness, light shows the way there's a connection between guidance in the physical world
with physical light,
and guidance in the spiritual world with spiritual light.
How is the laws light?
We don't need to go there.
We know that the result is guidance.
That is sufficient.
Allah is living?
How is he living?
We don't need to go into those details. Because we cannot grasp the reality. Allah is all knowing.
How is he all knowing?
We know that he knows. And as a result of that, we need to be on our toes. That's enough.
Okay, can we take a question then from Instagram?
Sadly, Molly is asking, Can I continue to eat while the Dan is going, or I must stop immediately.
Continuing to eat while the
event is going, it depends.
If your plate is on the table, and you're using instruments, whatever to eat with knife and fork or whatever spoon or you're eating with your hands. So you've taken the food in your hands, it's in your hand, the other hand goes you can put in your mouth, finish, what not that what's on your plate, you can just continue finishing up what's on your plate, no pause was delivered said that if the other hand goes and you have a glass of water in your hand.
glass of water is already in your hand. You can finish drinking, before putting it down. If you want to put it down right away, you can do that. But he gave the okay to just finished drinking what's in the glass and put it down. But this doesn't mean you get a one liter one and a half liter bottle of water and you're holding that in your arm. You know, so when the other end goes, you can still keep drinking all the way until sunrise. Oh,
you know, we can fool a lot. So, you know, we don't want to try to work in things, you know where
it's not really appropriate. It's just taken care of because if you have that glass in your hand, you're already drinking.
Then it's on your mind, you know, the other hand goes. So maybe it was juice. Maybe it was something else. You know, you put it down you have to go and pray. Your mind is still on the glass. So just finish that from you. Finish up the drink, put it down and then go and pray. But it hasn't
limitations, it's not an open invitation to have a plate of food with you that you continue to keep eating, you know?
No, because each that one act what's what's not what's, you know allowed is that if you had already scooped that
rice Viviani whatever
and you have it on the spoon and you're putting in your mouth there downwind finish but don't keep going thing okay I still have in my hand know that this is two hands now but one hand anymore it becomes in both your hands but as I said I didn't say that is that if the glass was in your hand and it should be your right hand not your left hand not your left hand with your finger underneath it you know like some people do they touch it
brother why why
why why what is this really doing? Well it's making sure that you know this right can be involved in it
Why can't you just have it with you right well cuz I ate with it in my hand is greasy and really
really that glass is it what's gonna happen with it? You're going to save it put it back on the shelf or you're going to watch it so if you've got to watch it What does it matter in Put your hands around it or not? Is this is a bad habit which has evolved in the Muslim oma today widespread has spoken about it every so often.
Ramadan especially becomes notable. Please
give it up.
Drink with your right shade on is the one who told you you can drink with your left hand and then stick your finger on the bottom or put it on the back of your hand to your drinking with your left hand on top of your right hand
below. What is that? Really?
I we can trick a lot. This is foolishness. Please.
Okay, back to the
our people. Students here on YouTube.
Second question, sad.
trilogy, the last resort of the Quran and I took corsi as part of the morning and evening Vicar and also it is the Sunnah to recite them after each obligatory Salah. So if I recite them after fudger and
after, after Salah is it sufficient for my morning and evening of car? Or do I need to recite them twice? Well, you know, we don't need to go into this.
where it is not clearly specified, you can do
you are able to do. What is comfortable for you to do. The other car can just be Subhana, Allah, Allah hamdu, lillah, Allahu Akbar are just
stuck for the law, stuff and a lot of stuff in the law, you know, it can be anything, the products I sell them gave us recommendations.
And we shouldn't become so
rigid in it this this is not obligation. Now, this is recommendation. This is so now. So what we should do is to
choose from the many that the prophet SAW Allah has given us what we feel most comfortable with.
And and do it
if you want to do it once you want to do it twice. You want to do it thrice. No problem is the process I'm specified.
Saying this thrice saying it three times, then
follow His guidance. But if he didn't specify then
you're free to
do as it's convenient for yourself.
Now we'll take another question from
our followers on Instagram.
But this man is asking during Salah Can I keep my eyes closed because it helps me concentrate
closing the eyes.
in prayer in Salah formal prayers for concentration purposes, is this something recommended? No.
It's not recommended.
Oh, you're saying it's for
concentration purposes, but it's not recommended. Why?
Because the process Allah told us
we see, while praying something harmful a scorpion
we should kill it good in your prayer.
Now if your eyes are closed, how's that what happened?
Prophet Muhammad's on solemn when praying in the home with his wives wife was out of the home came back and knocked on the door.
He would walk to the door open it to let them in and backup and continuous prayer. If his eyes were closed, then I think he would have some difficulty.
And you know, generally speaking, those who are have provided materials for the prayers, learning the prayers have stressed that we should focus our site on
the place of
prostration when we're standing
straight ahead when we're in core
when we're in Tushar hood, to look at our finger, look towards our fingers in chocolate, right because
were the natural places to look when
in prayer, not looking all over the place. The prophet SAW Selim, I'd said that we shouldn't while praying, look up
during the formal prayers,
we're talking about Salah the formal prayers,
the companions some of them were doing that making their prayer looking up because believe in Allah is of course above
But the process seldom said No, don't do that.
So in general, it is preferable that we keep our eyes open so we can be aware of what's going on around us without focusing on it.
Though we may feel more focused in our prayer by closing our eyes It's not profitable. However, it's not haram
if you feel that what's around you is so distracting
you know you're losing your
focus in prayer then you do what you need to do.
If it requires that you close your eyes given that circumstance you're praying in the marketplace things are just going on around you here there
question. When we forget the remembrance of Allah it is said we are
pointed a accordion
but don't we already have a clean
Okay, Corinne meaning a partner from the gym.
And the problem is that Sam said everyone has one
as we have a partner from the angels with us. whispering
goodness, good thoughts. good ideas.
We have with us a partner from the gym,
buddy who whispers bad ideas, corruption misguidance etc.
So, if it is mentioned
That when we don't remember a law
we're not thinking about a law
that Korean that we already have is joined by another
Is there a problem with that?
Meaning that when we
forget the law, then we become open to evil forces from all directions.
And of course, this is when the greatest disobedience acts of disobedience take place when we have forgotten the law
take the question now then from
our Instagram followers, students.
We don't have any more questions. Okay, back to
Circus when we forget Oh, that's the same question.
The one is threat jahaan asks,
What is its me awesome.
It's more law an hour long.
The Greatest Name of Allah.
This was covered in session number three.
On the first of the names of a law that we were looking at, in this series,
and that name is a lot
points to it. Yes, there are some who say it's cool.
And they shortened the name to who because of course in Arabic who normally will drop the last vowel. So who are becomes Who?
So they remember Allah by saying who?
And they do it together.
In the masjid, can you imagine a whole Masjid going Who?
So behind Allah
where people can go?
Only Allah knows.
the name of Allah, the Greatest Name of Allah, according to the evidence
supported by the or taken from the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad Salah
from his words, etc. is a lot.
Okay, we have a question from our instagramers.
Again, Sadie Molly's asking chef is praying 12 bytes of data we have the same word of 21 letter
praying 12 Raka 11 1111 Okay, you said 1211 Raka
have the same raw reward as 21.
Well, I would believe so.
In the general sense,
that if one is doing 11, based on the hadith of Ayesha, wife of the prophet SAW some
who said that the prophets I seldom
used to pray the night prayer
for four and 344 and three with
that was his common practice.
So that is the sun.
It's not obligatory in that if you want to pray 21 Okay.
If you want to pray 51 It's okay.
It's my prayer. My prayer you are free
to pray as much as you like, or as little as you like.
But if you were to choose a number
to say well
This number is better than that number.
We could say that the prophet SAW Selim being the best of examples, the number which he chose, which he was doing most commonly, we have to say that that must be the best number
You have a question from
A model is asking,
do we need permission from the husband to do height?
Does a wife
need permission from her husband? To do Hajj?
she is leaving the home.
She should get permission from her husband before doing so. That's just basic.
Yes, it's an obligation on her.
I never husband
prevented his wife from making hugs. She would get the reward of the intention and he would get the sin of his prohibition.
She should get permission from her husband to leave the home and do Hajj.
Now from our youtuber students,
Faisal Ali asks, as a scholar who, whose name is
awesome al Hakim, he uses al Hakim in his name. Is that okay? Well,
is really, Hakeem
said quickly becomes a hacky.
But it's really al Hakim
will meaning the family of hockey.
So no problem.
Another question from the one is what jahaan a woman who is divorced and is not able to get married in this world? Whom would she get as a partner? In Jenna, if Allah grants her agenda?
Allah says, while our comfy ma touched the he
you will have in it in Paradise, whatever your souls desire.
Do we need a better clear answer than that?
You're not going to be forced to be with that husband who divorced you?
Or who died and he really didn't like him anyway.
you are pleased with
will be with you. In Jana.
How? You're asking, how can you be with me and maybe somebody else likes him too. And, you know, how can you be with her and be with me and
people need to go into the house.
What our souls desire, Allah said, will be ours.
So just leave it at that.
Allah has spoken the truth. This is verse of the Quran. Allah has spoken the truth, how it will take place exactly. We don't need to know or worry.
It's enough for us to know it will be.
We have another question from Instagram.
hear from Qatar, as my question is, what does this do
to recite for breaking fast and during keeping fast?
In terms of beginning your fast Of course, you know, the DA
eating in general
is whenever we finish eating I'll have the landlady come and I had what is what is up an E innovator? How will in many will appa this well known to our for anytime we have eaten, this is the standard duar that we can make.
I don't recall a specific
for entering the fast now there are some books and that that have put together, you know, doodads and things which maybe they're good meanings etc. But their authenticity before you take them on and say well okay, this is what I need to do, let me tell everybody they need to do it. And you need to be sure that this was authentic.
In terms of breaking the fast
DA the Hubba dama
Welcome to Little Rock first is gone and the veins have become fresh,
moist with saboten Andrew, and the reward for what we have done
with some at an agile insha, Allah, Allah winning the reward will be ours.
This is the clearly authentic, there are others that people say
which are, you know, not really authentic.
I remember I know when I
first came into Islam, etc, I was taught some other two as I don't remember them that well now, but you know, that I used to say all the time, but later I found out that these studies were not authentic. But in the end, your intention here, you know, you finish your you're breaking the fast thank Allah for the food
and ask him to bless it. And to us, in your own words, is fine.
It's not a rigid,
you know, ritual that only these words were saying? preferably preferable, since the browser someone gave it, they're profitable, but not only
to do otherwise is not acceptable. No.
Shut up. Shut up. are terrible tarawih
the HUD dot Sala same question is telawi
and tahajjud. We can add pm ll also anything, you know, are these different
things to do different prayers to make in Ramadan. Fact is they're one and the same.
They're the same. We've just given them a different name.
There's just after Asia, after Asia, we have so now we can do two or four.
following that at night, ending with Witter, we have 200 That's it.
If you want to do more, you can do more. With the hands it can be longer, etc, etc. But then, you know, when people turn this tahajjud came to be known as tarawih.
And other people added to Malaya and people started to think that rawia after that you can also do a demo live. And you know, there's reward for this one and that one and okay after Tarawera Should we do our winter or should we save our with them till the end of family confusion?
This became confusion for people.
identify yourself. The religion is easy. So the problem is, as Alan said, it's easy. It's simple.
in Ramadan, out of Ramadan, it's the hatred
in Ramadan the
most often used to do
for that could be two and two or four straight without
and then three.
And the widower It is known that he did with her sometimes he did with his one.
Sometimes he did it at three, sometimes he did it's five to seven. So there's
So where it's flexible, let's keep it flexible.
In terms of
from our students,
some questions from them. There's quite a few of them up here now.
since last summer, I've been experiencing quite regular vivid dreams for no apparent reason. Well,
dreams are for no apparent reason.
These dreams are usually upsetting and frightening. Well,
what do you suspect is the cause and treatment?
even dreams are from shape on.
mixed with the ramblings of our minds.
We wake up, we wake up at night, we blow over our shoulder, seek refuge in Allah and shift the way we're thinking or whatever.
In terms of
the reasons, Allah knows best
could be from the jinn. The evil jinn
that managed to enter into our dreams at certain points can cause these things.
And it's not important, really to know exactly where, why and how.
It's just enough for us to know that
really can't harm us. We shouldn't pass them on to others, which may cause others to be afflicted by such games. Also, we keep it to ourselves. When people came to the province, our sentiment told them crazy dreams to heads got chopped off and was rolling down the hill and they were running after their head. Rob says that I'm laughed until metres from shaytaan. Don't tell it to anybody.
Don't pass your bad dreams on to others. Good dreams. Yeah, tell him a lot to inform people about it.
So we have no suggestion as to what is the cause.
How in the world could be no anyway. And the treatment the counselor Salam gave us.
asks a woman who is in her menstruation period. Can she listen to her children or students? Gran recitations are touching the Quran? Of course without touching the Quran and correct them if they make mistakes. Absolutely. Fine. It's perfectly okay to do that.
Khalid Sala says I live in Norway and we don't have a van.
So I was wondering if it's correct to pray to Sunnah prayers. Before Salah
Salatin fudger. Right after the recorded or than
or three minutes before? Yeah, then.
Yeah, that's okay.
You can do it sooner. before bringing the font. You know, it could anytime you're going to pray the font.
You do this before it that's recommended.
And if the time is shorter, whatever you do the foreign first and they do something after
and famara say is it permissible?
To travel from Muslim countries to Western countries for dunya reasons, yeah, it's permissible travel law says CFO fill out gold travel often
see the greatness of Allah's creation.
But of course, you know when traveling you have to
obey the principles of Allah to the Sharia the Quran. So now we don't put the shady side when we're traveling so okay, we're going to come back I know will be, you know when in Rome do as the Romans do.
So in America we do as the Americans do know,
where Muslims, wherever we are
kosamba Zubair Is there any delille or evidence that the Imam must pause for the followers to recite Surah Fatiha, there is no evidence.
in fact, some scholars look at this practice has been a kind of an innovation. But of course, if you wish to pause
it doesn't break the prayer.
But to teach you that something you should do
now we're entering into another realm and you need to have clear evidence for it. And there isn't any
sun we are soon v Rashid is the best way or approach to learn
the language of the Quran
Yes, we should learn the language of the Quran you should learn it, understand it know it, so that we can read the Quran in Arabic standard as it is, we can pray in our you know, using the Arabic and understand what we're
we're saying oh, we will bring behind others understand the verses of the Quran when they read. Of course.
There are many on this side. And let me do one more first.
What are the books? This is a continuation of the question. What other books wants you to study in order to complete knowledge of the Quranic Arabic language? There are many books that have been written. You know, just
from your local Arabic teacher, whatever you find out which one is the best, and the best ones that are out there and
get it? You know,
the key is just to be consistent in your study.
Okay, from Instagram. I haven't I haven't fasted properly for years, what do I do?
Well start fasting properly.
You haven't fasted properly for years. When you say property meaning
you miss days or you broke your fast or whatever that property is.
shaky term, it's not clear it's fuzzy.
But to say
properly means that you haven't fasted sincerely.
You know, that's just ritualistically you did it you did your serve, or did you have thought you prayed? But that's it, you didn't get into your fast.
Well, the point is, you realize that now understand, now is the time you go and put all your effort into your fast make up as best as you can in that way. Now that you have to go out and redo your fast over again.
back to our YouTubers, YouTube students been team one hour. If a woman does not remember about
the number of fast she missed due to pregnancy or menstruation. What should she do?
to take a guess. Find a number and
try to make up based on what you've come up with.
many say that Salah of
Men and women are the same, except some exceptions. When women stand in the
janazah prayers, they should join the legs together. Oh, that's another question.
Double question here. Okay, first part.
Yes, the prayers are the same.
The one expression that the browser Solomon mentioned regarding one of the females was praying. And seems she's spread herself out quite a bit. So he said, you know,
hope bring yourself together.
minor point, the rest of the prayer, in terms of where you raise your hand, those who say men raise their hands to the ears, women raise their hands to the chest. Women put their hands on their chest this way to cover their breasts, whereas men pray with their hands down below their navel is not true.
is false. There's no evidence for this at all.
No evidence. It's made up.
It's fake. But
it's common practice. If
people follow it, does that nullify their prayer? No, it does.
Because you want to raise your hands to the level of your ears or you want to raise your hands to level the shoulders. It's okay. Men and women, women can raise it this way. Men can raise it this way. It's perfectly okay.
But to say that this one is for men, so women who make it this way? What is that? What happens to their prayer then?
Does it mean that their prayer is affected, reduced in value, etc, etc. That's what they're gonna have to say. They're gonna say that this is for men.
And if women do, then it comes the other Hadith that women should not imitate men, okay? The women praying like this are imitating men. So therefore their Salah has been, you know, corrupted. It's false. It's nonsense.
Then the other question, which was
when women stand in
namaz, I guess.
Jaina Jane animals? Oh, Jane namaz. I know that this this must be some other language for Salah
should they join their feet together or keep them apart?
Well, the bots are synonyms, components of feed used to touch each other's feet,
to touch each other's feet. So they're connected, they're connected at the shoulders, the shoulders to touch the feet to touch. So they're praying as one. That's what that does. You end up praying as one. Otherwise, if you're completely separate your feet, don't touch your shoulders, don't touch it, the gap between you and the people praying, your line isn't complete.
you're praying by yourself completely in that sense.
Whereas the idea is we're following the mouse and we follow him together. So the proper way is that children should be shoulder to shoulder, feet two feet. Now how the feet two feet should be subservient. Well, well, you know, their heels, their ankles, they're used to touch.
Well, kiddo, you tried to do that? And you see what you end up turning and twisting your foot this way and that way and you're struggling to maintain that and what kind of prayer is that? You know,
Feet arch. Good enough.
Second question. The one is what jahaan if one of our teen children's
teenage teenagers wants to listen to music and he comes with a fatwa, which states that there are differences of opinion regarding listen to music, how can we advise him in this regard?
The bottom line is
you bring for him
the evidence which shows that listening to music is Hara.
This is the best that you can do. You show it to them reason with them. That
Understand etc. And also, you know, lectures that have been done by different scholars etc which talk about music and its impact its effects etc. You know, let them listen to that give the understanding why, why it should be avoided, you know, and hopefully inshallah that would impact on them
and then you make drama, but of course, you can't be with them 24 seven, check in on them all the time. What are you hearing? What do you listening to him? So, you know, you give them the best that you have, then you have to leave the rest to Allah.
Anything for Instagram?
Okay, back on to our YouTube students
from lock mode
can a woman son
be a Wali?
If her male while he
is no female, where they differ widely,
such as her father, brother, grandfather, etc.
I guess if they're not available, can the son his son if he's from puberty onwards, he can be here when he she doesn't have others available?
mana asks, Can I pray Salah in the same room with my brother? Yes, you can.
If you're going to pray in front of him and lead him in Salah? Well, no, they did not do that. But praying in the same room is no problem.
He's 15. And I'm 18. Regardless
question from Instagram is asking, what should be the length of the beard? What should be the length of the beard? Well,
there are some people whose beard don't grow, doesn't grow any longer than this.
So what are you going to tell him?
As long as what is on your face is classified as a beard. You have grown your beard.
Now some people say no, you're supposed to just grow the beard and don't cut it. So if it goes down to your ankles,
you know your beard because some people beard comes full right down to your ankles, then that's what you have to do. Don't cut it. Haram
is an extreme position.
It's an extreme position.
As long as what is on your face, is considered a beard. Then you have grown your beard.
trimming your beard, we know there are authentic reports for more than 10 of the companions of the process
that they use to trim their beards.
Authentic reports. Even Omar himself and even Omar
was known as the
carbon copy of the Prophet. So a lot of
the carbon copy meaning whatever the prophet SAW, Selim did, he did
when the prophets I seldom put a ring on his finger,
finger of his right hand.
Even Omar did it.
When the products are sold them wore
particular garments, he would do it
the way the prophet SAW Selim used to walk, he used to walk the same way.
He was known to imitate the process
so close to heal amongst the companions. I mean, the bottom line is that actually because it was only him, I went back I didn't do that. Oh, I didn't do it with mine and Ali, they didn't do it. But he did it. I believed in Allah.
The prophet SAW Salah never told them not Don't do that. Don't need to do that. Let them do it. But the others understood this is not necessary. This is the Libin Omar, his love of the province asylum in that way. He expressed it in that way.
So as promised asylum, okay. So it's okay to do that. But think about it. He was the one known and he trimmed his beard.
It's not to say that the others didn't also but it's
It's reported, recorded by his own students
to quote recorded in the books of Hadith, that he trimmed his beard
to use to trim it, taken ahold of a fist and trimming what's after it. This was his way of evening. Now this beard is growing like this. So he will take it from here, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut. What is that he's tidying his beard is making the length similar.
That's what he's doing.
it's a reasonable. Now,
some people say no, you can only trim after the fist.
The promises Allah never said this.
This was a live in all my practice. He did it this way. Now, what are you saying? Okay,
my beard doesn't grow to a fist, there's no no here.
So this is the length of my beard, for example. So you're saying you can't trim your beard.
Because your beard doesn't grow to the length that you can trim it.
Please, you know, this is turning the religion into a very localized is certain countries, certain cultures, certain, you know, groups of people, they have this characteristic that their beard is long, so they can cut and do what they want to do. But the rest of us, you know, who have short beards, they don't doesn't grow very long. You know, then you can only
this is not the dean, the dean is what can be practiced anywhere and everywhere. Not limited only to a certain set of people among
the people of the earth
who have certain characteristics, they can do it.
There are certain aspects of the deen that's only they can do it and the rest of
them can't do it because they don't have those aspects, physical aspects, which are decided by last month. So
this isn't correct.
I think where you have any more questions.
We have ended our questions from the YouTube
Nope, by smilla
that case we'll close our session subhanak Aloma humbucker shadowline and and let's start with Federica on a tuba lake. And I would also just inform you that
