This is session number nine.
And then it we will be looking at name number 10
al Mohammed Haman
which is found
only in one place in the Quran referring to Allah
Subhana Allah and molekule could do so Salaam will movement Olmo Haman, the Sovereign, the Holy mystore of peace, the grantor of security, The Guardian, and mo Haman, The Guardian linguistically, grammarians have differed greatly regarding the route from which this Divine Name was derived.
For simplicity's sake,
we will consider the order
opinion that the Divine Name Alma Haman comes from the trilateral route. Ha, meme known
and it has three basic meanings.
The first and main meaning is to oversee, to protect and to guard the Guardian,
while the second meaning is to witness,
allies the ultimate witness, and the third meaning is to determine the truth.
The word mohai mill appears two times in the Quran,
both of which are in the form weyman
either as Alamo Haman
or behind me,
the root of the word Mohammedan is also said to mean the extending of a wing like that our hand extending its wing in order to protect
or chicks, chickens,
the Divine Name Elmo, Haman, is also related to the other Divine Names are rocky The Watcher a half is the one who protects and guides I Shahid, the witness,
which we will be studying in later sessions in the future in sha Allah.
And Wyman is the one who observes, controls, looks after completely protects us and judges us by the truth. That's a brief summary of the name relative to Allah, this Divine Name and Wyoming
means the witness of everything which takes place in a law's creation,
as in the verse in Surah units verse 61.
While our time aluna min Hamelin in Khun na la Khun Shahada is to fee doula fee
whatever Did you may be doing? I am a witness of it. While you are deeply engrossed in it,
it also means that he Allah is the watcher, and Guardian over all the affairs of his creatures.
The Quran itself is called moharan. That's the second use of the name. It's used in reference to the Quran.
where Allah says in Surah Maya weinzierl na la Cal keytab bellhawk Mossad, the en Lima Albania Dae Hee min el kitabi, one mo Haman and LA and I revealed the book to you in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it. And Mohammed on as a witness over it.
Some explained that position of the Quran in relationship to the other books in that it confirms the truth that is in
what has been distorted of them.
It clarifies it confirms the truth, and it clarifies the distortions the changes that took place after the times of the prophets received the earlier books.
After mentioning the position of his book in relationship to the previous books of Revelation, Allah and Mohammed instructs us to make use of it
falcom baina, whom we Manzella law, so judge between them
with what Allah has revealed. The Quran is to be recited and memorized, to help in its application in our daily lives.
Doing on being used
to judge between right and wrong in our relationships, with the law on it, and our relationships with our fellow human beings in the world in which we live.
In terms of the application, according to even backhauls for principles were the
first principle is to adopt where applicable, the Divine Name and Mohammedan cannot be applied directly by human beings, as the human witness cannot rival or be equal to the Supreme witness.
is the witness, and human beings can become conscious of,
of his witness, and at the same time become witnesses for our own actions.
is generally called maraca
overseeing our actions, checking them, following up with them, ensuring that they are in order. From belief that a lie is the Mohammed, the Supreme witness who watches over all that takes place in the universe should lead the believer to reflect on his or her thoughts, words and deeds,
as the law said, and so Al Baqarah verse 74. Well, my law will be awful in I'm Matt, I'm a Loon. Allah is not in attentive of anything that you do.
So it encourages them to take stock of themselves, and to check their lifestyles. People easily get caught up in corruption, when in a corrupt environment, sometimes even without realizing it. In a corrupt environment, bad becomes good and good becomes bad.
And people who grow up in that way that surround them all the time, are oftentimes drawn into it sucked in and are unable to distinguish. Because
when good is made bad and bad is made good it is appealing to our desires. And this is a part of the methodology of shaytaan Satan to deviate human beings from the correct way.
So guiding the implement the implications of this name helps the believer to get back on track.
The Divine Name al mo Hyman invites the true believers to do the prophetic Palace of
the prophet SAW Selim. He's the one who spoke about
particularly after asking about Islam,
and asking about a man
he spoke about
where the believers are expected to strive in worship of Allah, with such a consciousness of him in their hearts, that it is as if they see him above them and around them.
And when they're dr slackens, because sometimes we're strong, we have that strong sense of awareness. And sometimes we're weak. And that's not a bad thing, because it's natural. So when the DR slackens they will still sincerely worship Him in the knowledge that he sees them.
When the prophets Allah was asked by Angel Gabriel, about the Ascend, he said, and taboo, the law can cut off for any lambda Khun Tara, who, for in Iraq,
to worship Allah as if you see him. And if you can't see him, which is reality, you're not gonna be able to see him.
Indeed, he sees you.
So Elmo Heyman
is the embodiment of this stage of faith, called maraca where the believer remembers a law regularly while living a normal life, not going into a monastery, secluded from the rest of society and hoping to achieve this state in that way.
Because the bouncer sentiment said the believer and movement under the U haul it and as well used to be da da da Hoon
believer who mixes with the people and is patient with their harm hiral middle movement, Allah de la holida. Last, while I use Radha, better than the believer who doesn't mix with the people is isolates himself or herself from society, you know, and so it doesn't have to deal with, you know, being patient with the harm that comes from living in the midst of society. So, though it's permissible, you know, Islam does not forbid,
a believer, a Muslim, from isolating himself from society, you know, he sets up His home,
far away from the big cities and you know,
saves himself from the problems etc.
With ethics takes his family out there
is fine. I mean, if he has the means he's able to do that, and there's no harm, no harm in doing that, but is not better than the one that stayed in the city.
The one that stayed in the city and was patient in dealing with people while
giving his own or her own contributions to society and its development and progress. They're better. That's what the prophet SAW Selim told us,
regardless of what other people might say.
So, reflection on this Divine Name, and remembrance of Allah with it encourages the believers to seek to stop their evil deeds in the realm of thought.
Before they take root, and become words and deeds,
though the progress on solemn was reported to have said, a lot overlooks the bad thoughts of the Muslim nation, as long as they do not speak about it, or act on it. So it's not
I seem to have a bad thought, as long as we don't speak to others or promote it through our speech, and act on it.
With our limbs rest of our limbs.
That's the mercy of Allah Allah. But if we're going to try to take control over our actions, then we need to catch them when they are in the state of thought.
So, the believer who contemplates on the Divine Name, Elmo, Haman, will strive to prevent or banish evil thoughts before they can take root as an intention, or a mental decision. Because
this is the most effective way to prevent oneself from doing evil deeds, catch it early. Because if it becomes a fixed thought,
now you have a problem fighting with that thought.
Where a decision has been made, I mean, the initial thought is a fleeting thought, you know, it comes through your head from anywhere, say dynamic forces to dynamic things around you, whatever you're carrying, you know, there are many different sources, you're reading something, some bad ideas come out of it, you know, you're watching something on your phone or whatever, you know, negativity comes. So it's a flash, you can put it aside, or you can dwell on it, once you dwell on it, then you become fixated with it. It's now left the realm of fleeting thought and becomes a serious thought, than from it becoming a serious thought the next step is planning for action.
How's Allah protect us from falling in that fashion, which is the normal sequence of things. So the best thing is to catch these bad thoughts early, and we try our best to grow good thoughts and turn them into decisions and ultimately into actions, even though
they're already rewarded, the person is already rewarded for having good thoughts without actions.
This is the mercy of Allah we have a bad thought he doesn't hold us to account. We have a good thought he gives us a reward.
Turning that good thought into an action it's multiplied by 10
Doing that bad thought, it's only one
against us. So this is the blessing of Allah. And that's why I said, you know, in the grind in the hustle now God bless I,
the good deeds erase
the evil deeds. So
such a believer
will not consider any good deed
The one who's trying to grow Good, good thoughts, good practices, they don't look at any good deed as being
that's minor, that's no big deal so that no,
they get the chance to do some good, they do it.
Nor do they look at any evil deed as being too insignificant to avoid, Ah, that's just a minor sin, but the minor sins, you know, you do enough of them, then the whole thing becomes a major sin. So,
it is important for us to consider
as much good that we can do we do
and avoid as much evil as we can.
So the believer strives to do whatever is obligatory and recommended in all spheres of his or her life,
while believing that Allah will in turn, protect and safeguard the affairs of their dunya. And they're accurate.
That is, the security, the
promise of Elmo, Haman, being the Guardian, the witness, protecting
so Allah will guide them with regards to their families, their wealth, their well being, even to their offspring. There's a famous verse in Surah Kahf,
in which Allah says,
wealth, which had been left by the father,
under a wall, which was about to crumble,
and look at the fixed up this wall, in a in a town or a village, where the people were very obnoxious, very, you know, uncooperative,
And that caught Prophet Moses as being weird, you know, why would you want to go and build up this wall?
When these people have been so bad to us?
That was the end of his journey with the Prophet. And he was a prophet according to a variety of scholars.
He clarified together he was the teacher, while are sent to feather.
Sorry, Allah sent to Moses, Prophet Moses, he clarified to him
that the parents
the father, from the parents, was a righteous man. Well Cana abou masala
their father was righteous. Because of that righteousness. Allah had
a hardier that's actually the proper pronunciation, there is what we all know. But then how there is the real Arabic classical pronunciation of his name
or title which is given to him.
He clarified that
because of the righteousness of the father of these two orphans,
Allah protected that wealth for them.
New to the believers
Previous good deeds, Allah will protect his heart from the evil effects of false ideologies, doubts, as well as destructive desires and lusts.
When confronted with such trials, which could potentially destroy one's religion, Allah grants that person the steadfastness needed to overcome it.
And does not let these diseases take root in his or her heart, for example, profit use of we all know the story of profit uses,
where you face this extraordinary trial being a young man
at the peak of his
a stranger in the land without family support.
He was only a slave.
And the wife of the chief minister,
sought to seduce him. She was wealthy, she was beautiful, and she closed the doors, so nobody could see what's taking place.
It's like the president's wife, seducing their gardener or their driver.
Prophet Yusuf only passed the test, by our laws protection, as a result of the sincerity of his face.
work at danika Lee nursery for and who assume one fascia in the who when a bad in a more philosophy.
And thus it was in order for me to avert from him evil and immorality. Indeed, he was from my chosen servants. This is the mercy of Allah.
We pray that Allah gives us that mercy.
Though we don't deserve it. We pray that he gives us when faced with such trials.
The second principle of living by Paul was to confirm were unique, and in applicable, the name
where the name is unique and and applicable, we should confirm it. Because this Divine Name al Mohammed describes the law as the ultimate Guardian witness on limited by time and space, he alone knows the future of every human being, and is able to mold our past, our present and our futures. Thus, we should believe with certainty that whatever Allah and Mohammed gives us, or keeps us away from is ultimately good for us. Even though more often than not, it doesn't seem that way.
However, the Almighty oversees everything.
And everything is in accordance with his plan.
complaining about our looks, you know, why didn't the law make me more handsome? Or more beautiful, etc? Or about others belongings? Why do they have an I don't have
or about missed opportunities? I've Why didn't I get the chance to do this? And so on and so forth, you know, lives filled with complaints.
These are actually clear signs that we have to strengthen our faith. And
if we find ourselves or people tell us, you know, you're always complaining.
If you ever satisfied with anything, you know, there's always something wrong in everything.
Oh, I mean, usually we get upset when people tell us that you're always complaining. No, I'm not, you know, I've met them.
instead, what we should try to do, especially this Ramadan.
We should try to do,
we should listen.
hear what they're saying. You know, and say, okay, maybe I really don't realize what I'm doing. I'm not really aware. I'm just, I've just this has become such a habit, that it's just happening automatically. And I think I'm just talking general talk. I'm just letting you know how I feel and so on. So but really, it's just complaint after complaint after complaint.
So this is really a clear sign, cross. Once we have come to realize that this
habit that we are now unconsciously engaged in without having any chance to fix it, because it's unconscious. Once we have been made aware, then we should thank Allah Frankel Mohammed, and
set about trying to change it
by first and foremost accepting what is
and being con content with a loss other is decree the true key to finding tranquility in our hearts that we are so badly longing for, but cannot find it in anything else in the whole world. It's accepting,
what is this has happened if you can't get away from it.
And being content that Allah knows best, he is the one who has decided that it happens happens. So we relate things back to Allah, and then our hearts can find rest. Allah will decree law, LA, he taught my inner glow, it's only with the remembrance of Allah
that hides, find rest. On the other hand, we should carefully avoid all people and practices, which claim to give us knowledge of the future because people try to find that contentment and rest through illegitimate means.
And you have these people very busy selling the future, selling futures.
Not in the business sense, but selling people's futures, false futures,
that this is going to happen to you this happened to them, you will be able to do this, you're going to travel, you're going to meet that your business is going to be successful. But you know, of course, you'd like to hear it at something very pleasing to our desires. You know, but the bottom line is that this is all fake,
fake information false. They're only playing with our minds.
And the prophet SAW sent him warned us that whoever goes to a fortune teller, and believes in what they say they are disbelieved in Islam.
That is an act of disbelief in Islam.
The third principle of abundant backhaul
was having hope, where there is a promise in the name. If the Divine Name contains in it a promise we should have hope.
So, the name Elmo, Haman, contains the promise that Nothing escapes a lot. That's a promise, it's indirect. It doesn't the name doesn't mean Nothing escapes a lot. It doesn't actually say that. But if Allah is the ultimate witness and the Guardian overall, it means that whatever is taking place he's aware of
We talked about the future, he knows what is to come, he knows what's going on here and now.
whatever wrongdoing takes place against us in this life.
Though no one else knows about it. Besides us, Allah knows, and he will write that wrong. There is a day of judgment,
a day of judgment where all the wrongs would be made, right.
Consequently, we shouldn't give up
and feel hopeless, because everything is recorded.
Accepting the reality of this name and more, Heyman gives us the confidence to not give up when oppressed and defeated.
It helps us to accept the difficulties which we face in life, while continuing to strive and progress forward.
So the promises there
and we should come out of that name, calling on the law using that name. We should take
from it, I sense of hope
call on Alamo Haman
in prayer because
many times, you know, we make doodads and things after our prayers, etc. These are supposed to be prayers, but we're doing it so mechanically.
You know, it's really doesn't constitute prayer.
Reality is that
Islam, the religion of Islam is based completely on good manners.
The prophet SAW said Ahmed said,
in the Mago SW Tell me Mama Carmela flock, I was only sent to perfect for you, the best,
the highest of moral character traits.
So Islam is a religion in which anyone that surpasses us, in manners, they have better manners than us, then they're better than us, in the sight of Allah, regardless of what we have in terms of our wealth, our position and what we've done. And
if they're better in manners, they're better, just like that.
So we should be working on our character, improving, making it better.
Because with good character, we have room for hoping for a better situation. In our present and our future, we can't change the past, but we can correct the present. And in that way we can impact on our future.
So we should never lose hope in ourselves and in the law. Instead, we should ask Allah Mohammed, to help us every step of the way.
Ask him to protect us from our own desires and weaknesses. Imagine the protection of the hen
for her chicks by raising her wing to protect them from harm. And know that Alma hymens protection for us is limitless. So whenever we are in difficult situations, we're afraid, we feel lost, have hope in a moment and invoke him using his divine name.
In order for us to do that,
we have to protect our hearts
because the reaching out to our last one to Allah as an Wayman, it requires that it comes from a good heart,
not a corrupted heart,
a heart that is clean
and well intentioned.
From that heart, we can develop real hope in Allah. If the heart is not good, then
The province outside Ahmed said there is a piece of flesh in the body. If it becomes good, that is, if it is reformed, the whole body becomes good. But if it gets spoiled, the whole body gets spoiled.
And that is the heart.
He said that to emphasize the importance of taking care of our hearts.
Art is one of the greatest trusts given to us by Al Mohammed.
And it will be our most important witness when we stand before him.
brothers and sisters protect our hearts. How
we should gain knowledge about the types of diseases mentioned in the Quran and the Sunnah
and their symptoms, assess ourselves and then seek to cure the situation.
Scholars mentioned four of the greatest poisons of the heart.
Unnecessary talking, chatting too much unrestrained glances always looking at this and that this one's better and that is better and listen, always comparing and
and then we can seek the cure. We must
No, these poisons, poisons of the heart. I mentioned the first two
and the third is too much food.
Too much food
and weather, you know, we think okay, I'm what I'm eating is
it's not I'm not getting I'm not overweight, etc, but just eating all the time.
It's not good for the heart.
It's not good for the heart.
And the last was keeping Bad Company
keeping Bad Company, because your companions, your friends, your gang your group
affect us and the prophets I send them gave many examples to stress this but he said, choose your companions well, because you'll recall on the Day of Judgment
If you don't want that person to be with you on the Day of Judgment, where you have to stand before a law, then definitely you don't want to have them around you now.
The last of the four principles of even batol was fear where there is a warning
the warning of there being a witness to everything,
to everything we do, say even what we think
this should cause us to stop and think before we act, very important. Stop and think before acting not idea come to you jumping you
into everything gone here there. We should scrupulously avoid hasty decisions, because as they say, haste makes waste Rasul Sallam said at the end Nieman Allah will Arjuna Mina shade on
patient deliberation is from Allah and His this from Satan.
Meaning that deliberation is beloved to Allah. Consequently the promises and untold told a shed up to face
in the FECA locker sloty
your hip boom Allah Rasool
Allah him. Well, Anna.
Indeed you have two characteristics,
beloved by Allah and His Messenger,
deliberation in your actions.
When we do things hastily, we easily forget a lot. As our focus is on the completion of whatever we want to do.
And this is the door from which the satanic forces easily overcome us. Patience gives us a chance to see the pros and the cons, the way the possible good and bad consequences to our actions or decisions.
It gives us a chance to remember a law and benefit from his protection, as if not bus go to the process
as telling him for the life of
for the law, to Judo to jack.
Big Be mindful of Allah and he will protect and take care of you. Be mindful of him and you will find them at your side.
On Wayman sees every deed we do,
he observes our actions and our reactions to everything, all situations,
even witnesses are in their thoughts.
We should remind ourselves constantly of this fact, and let it motivate us to stay away from sins and temptations
or more Haman will protect us from harm from harm and harm
and even from committing sins, if we are mindful of him.
And keep remembering him while doing everything that we do.
is also Mohammed. We said in the very beginning of our session that Allah refers to the Quran as Mohammed over the books that were revealed earlier.
As such, we should fear abusing it and abandoning it. We shouldn't just read the Quranic text, parrot fashion. We were expected by Alamo Haman, to interact with it, implement it and memorize it. Because the Quran is also the guardian. And witness, the prophet SAW Selim said, Indeed, Allah elevates some people with this Koran, and degrades others. That is,
those who fulfill the rights of the Quran will be raised high in this world and in the Hereafter, while those who abandon it will be put down.
We should make the Parana witness for us and not against us by fulfilling all of its rights to the believers. And this month, Ramadan is the month of Koran. So this becomes very important for us, the Quran is Allah Mohammed for us.
So what are the rights that are due to the crown, we should know them and we should apply them in our readings, our listenings, etc, of this month.
The first right is that we listened to it attentively. Allah says we're either putting out called arnoux for stemmy roula who one sit to the Allah come to our hammer. So when the Quran is reciting, then listen to it and pay attention to it. So that you may receive a laws mercy.
This right is not fulfilled by playing in one's house or car,
not giving it focus,
the focus that it deserves. We're just we just turned on the
or the TV
or our phone and we just have it playing whilst we're going on doing other things etc. It's just playing in the background. It's just mood music, it sets the mood.
This is not the way that the grind is supposed to be listened to
this verse that I just mentioned in Korea, this verse commands us to engage in Istithmar in listening in thought and paying attention when the Quran is recited. So if you're not gonna listen to it and turn it off, don't fool yourself. Don't turn it into background music.
The scholars say that it's the man is to listen, but in thought means to listen without speaking.
To listen without speaking so number of this province have said
regarding the difference between the two.
rights of the Quran is that it be recited
as a law stated.
Well, we'll move it to an akuna minal muslimeen. We're an at Lowell.
And I'm commanded to be
of the Muslims
and to recite
the recitation of the Quran is a commandment from Allah.
Allah says in the Quran, or at the little Khurana 30 Allah
and recite the Quran with measured recitation not reciting it 90 miles an hour, but reciting it
measured way where the words are clear. They can be heard by others and understood, etc. Not just racing to finish off the car and so you can say I finished one car and two car and 10 grands in Ramadan.
is not a goal.
We should recite Quran respectively This is yet another commandment from Allah.
with that said, we understand that learning the basics of Arabic and Tajweed is an obligation.
Some people say no, you know, just you can just read it, you know, Ally's Mirza fully understands what is meant even if we mispronounce it, etc, etc. No, but
there is a famous fifth he
or legal principle which states whatever is needed to fulfill an obligation is an obligation.
In other words, since the recitation of the Quran is an obligation,
which cannot be fulfilled, except by learning the basics of Arabic and
then doing so that is learning the basics of Arabic and Tajweed, becomes an obligation in and of itself.
The third write of the Quran on us is memorization. The browser Sallam said, He who has no Koran in his heart, is like a house that is destroyed.
So behind Allah.
So we are encouraged to memorize some of the Quran as the Sahaba did,
as the Sahaba did, in the time of the Prophet Muhammad, Allah, and after his time, etc, we should have some of it in our hearts, it doesn't mean everybody has to be happy with majority of the companions weren't.
But they had something of the clan in their hearts. The fourth right of the Quran is that it be contemplated.
There are countless institutions in our communities that teach the memorization of the broad hamdulillah
that's a good thing. However, we are severely lacking in institutions, teaching the science of contemplating the crowd, the tafsir the understanding because for you to be able to contemplate you must have knowledge of what the Quran is actually saying.
What is interesting is that there are no verses in the Quran, which reprimand people for not memorizing the Quran, despite its importance, but there are at least four verses that censor those who do not contemplate it. I've highlighted the balloon and Quran Amala. Lubin up follow up?
Do they not reflect upon the Quran? Or are there locks upon their hearts?
This is the
fearful state, we ask the Lord to protect us from it.
And the fifth principle
for fulfilling the rights of the Quran is its application application of the Quran. This is the fruit of contemplation. Because first you have to read it. After you read it. You have to contemplate what you're reading, understand it, and then you're supposed to apply it. Allah says upon, well, how do I Kitab one answer now who MOBA raquan biru.
And this is a book we have revealed, which is blessed, so follow it.
That's the application. The companions of the Prophet SAW Selim
had a particular way of studying the crowd in which they combine both memorization and application.
Above the rock man as Swami had said, we were informed by those who used to teach us the Quran. That is, a smile did not find even Masood and others of the companions that they would learn 10 verses at a time from the Prophet sallallahu Sunnah. And they would not go beyond them until they had learned the knowledge and application within them.
This was their way.
So as they would say, we learned the Quran along with its knowledge and application at the same time.
They were all
Only a few companions who memorize the whole Quran from cover to cover,
or from fat to happiness when there was no cover.
the message of Islam, its implementation and its justice
reached all corners of the world through that.
They understood what little Quran they had memorized and applied it.
Well, today, the memorizers of the entire Quran are in the 10s of 1000s, hundreds of 1000s. However, our situation as oma has never been so fragile.
The understanding pondering and application of the Quran is missing. And thus we find ourselves in our present situation, under attack,
cut up into pieces, unable to come together and raise Islam, the banner of Islam once again. But
we don't give up hope.
allies and my men and with each generation, Muslims are becoming more and more conscious of their responsibility. And we pray that Allah continues to bless us into the future.
We'll close the session by calling on Allah using this name.
Allah Yama, Haman, we affirm that you are the one who ensures our well being

suddenly Rashid. Do you have any plan to start the Master's Course in Arabic language for IOU? Yes.
We will start the course in sha Allah this September. It's already in the books. It's been worked on for a couple of years now. And
we have reached the point where we can begin to offer it
if I sell cakes, can I sell cakes to people who order on their birthdays and anniversaries etc.
Basically, if the cake is neutral,
no problem. What they do with it is their business.
if you are engaged in
Muslim Muslims celebrating anniversaries which is not really in accordance with the Sunnah
as well as birthdays, then it's best that you don't and know that Manta cache and Lila our water who Lahu Kira and Minho whoever gives up something for the sake of Allah, Allah will replace it with what is better.
from Instagram Do we have a question?
saved is asking before I learned Quran Should I learn Arabic first?
The issue of learning Arabic and learning Quran? Yes, it's better for you to learn Arabic first.
I mean, if you're meaning, learning Arabic,
grammar, syntax, everything understanding so that what you memorize or of the Quran, you will understand it as you memorize it, then that's another issue. Because learning Quran or learning Arabic to that degree may take you years.
But if you mean for example, you want to read the Quran, recite the Quran, memorize the Quran, but you don't know how to read the Arabic letters, of course, you must learn Arabic first.
to that degree, you must. Otherwise if you're past that point, you can read the text, you're learning the Tajweed whatever goes along with it. And
you can study at the same time, the basic Arabic You can take the course and the International University so I was on a university in which we set up
their courses available their intensive Arabic course where you can in two years time master the basic understanding of Arabic.
I would advise that you take those courses, you can do it in your spare time at your own pace, in the International University, inshallah Allah that way you're doing both at the same time, you're not stopping everything to do this first and then doing that.
Any further questions from Instagram?
One is asking how to overcome mental stress and depression.
How to be asked how to overcome mental stress and depression.
The formula that I usually give
is so Jude a sugar
So Jude, a sugar, the prostration, for
This is one of the most powerful, life changing experiences for those who have fallen into depression, hopelessness, this kind of thing.
It was the practice of the prophets, Allah is a regular practice, that whenever any good came to him, somebody brought some
money for the Muslims, or some gifts were given to him or whatever, whenever he received anything,
which is good. The first thing he would do was to go and make sujood.
They don't have to have Voodoo, they don't have to face the parabola.
Just go into suju You don't have to pray to rock as first, just go immediately into surgery. And you stay in that schedule.
and reflect on the good that has come to you. Now you in the state of depression,
you know, despair, where you're looking at everything around you as failure. Everything is bad, there's no good there, you start to think life is not even worth living. All these kinds of bad thoughts are coming to you.
What you do is when you go into sujood, you start to think, reflect this week. Didn't anything good? happen? I maybe you maybe you and you didn't pick up on it, you didn't get involved in it. You didn't celebrate it or whatever. But it happened
once, twice, three times.
The previous week, the week before that. Didn't anything good happen? Yeah, it did to same situation. It did. But
it was only like a temporary leave and then back into despair. So you go and look what happened two weeks ago.
And then three weeks ago, and you start to look at all of these good things that have been happening. But you haven't been able to clear yourself, of your state of despair, and
depression, because you're not putting it together.
That's what you do, the sugar is supposed to do for you. It's supposed to get you to focus on what are the blessings which law has put in your life.
Once you start to focus on that, then the cloud of despair
and depression starts to lift.
You start to realize more and more, that was good in your life. Good has come, but you just missed it. You couldn't grasp it, you couldn't take the good from it. So
I would say that's your beginning point. Of course there's many other things that you need to do and maybe your case is medical. Maybe you have some kind of chemical imbalance in your system. You need some medical treatment also i'm not saying you know, just that, you know, Quranic reading
what we call Rukia can be done for you this many different things can be done. I'm just focusing on one practical one that you can do right now for yourself. Because you have to ask yourself okay,
when was the last time that you did to do the sugar? Most people say I never did it.
I'm I don't even know if I ever heard of it.
Wow. And this is what we call a tsunami.
And emphasized stressed sooner because the prophet SAW Selim did it all the time like the two rocks
of soon now with fudger
that is considered so number
one seldom even when is traveling when he dropped shorten prayers from four to two. You know he dropped Sooners and things like this when traveling. Those two additional prayers of fudger he never dropped.
He never left. I mean of course you can miss this it's still recommend
did start watching obligatory?
Your sinful if you don't do it No. Go highly rewarded if you do it. So
this is so do the show
in terms of our questions
if we forget to say Bismillah before a task, can we say it afterwards? Yeah.
This Mila I mean, we were given it in eating to say Bismillah Allahu ashira.
In Name of Allah in the beginning of it, and at the end.
I'm not saying that that's what the solution that you should this is what you shouldn't say that you could say
if you've forgotten
the question, when is civil disobedience permitted in Islam?
civil disobedience for example, if the experimental COVID-19 vaccine is mandated by the local authority, as Islam permit us to refuse to take it,
recognized by the majority of scientists around the world,
as being beneficial,
and people are dying like flies around us, left and right.
For us not to take it common sense
should stop us from rejecting it.
In any case, if we just take the principle, that authority, you know, that were obliged to obey the authorities or to Allah, wa to rosu but only am remco
obey Allah and obey obey the messenger and those in authority over you.
So if they have instructed,
you should do it.
That is a requirement of the Dean
was asking, Can I deliver food to non Muslims and Ramadan? Uber Eats?
Over eats Uber Eats is like Uber Eats.
delivering food and Ramadan. I mean, okay, you're not eating? What's forbidden for us to eat.
But if non Muslims for example, are ordering food then for you to bring the food and deliver it to them, that's perfectly okay. No problem.
from bucaro. Abdullah, have you written books? Or is there a collection of your lectures?
Yeah, I've written published, actually published more than 50 books,
individual books on various topics, etc. You can get them at iph International Islamic publishing house, as well as dour corner bookstore iph is in Saudi Arabia.
Tao corner bookstore is in Malaysia, they have branches,

This world of COVID

Audio lectures, you can find them on my website.
Without Philips comm
there's a collection of
Do doctors that
some time back? It's available?
Question from Muna, can we greet non Muslims first? What is the best way to greet a non Muslim?
Well, in general,
we follow the principle as well as element given us to let them begin the greeting. And this is weightings of
readings of Salah, just saying, How are you doing? Are things?
That's fine, you can say that first It doesn't matter. This is not the real greeting that the process Allen spoke of the Solomonic, which involves really making to after them. He said, let them do it first. And then you say why like
that? If they meant ill by it.
Let it be upon you also. If they meant Goodbye, it, let it be upon you.
We have anything from Instagram.
So is it permissible for a Muslim to leave his Muslim country and settle in a non Muslim country?
Is it permissible for a Muslim to leave his Muslim country and certainly in a non Muslim country? Well, depends
on what he's doing in this business, Muslims. I've been doing that from the time of the prophet SAW some.
of course, where there's a danger to one's Islam or the Islam of one's family, that one has to keep that in consideration. You might go there temporarily, for business purposes, etc. And then you don't settle there because of the danger. You know, we're obliged islamically not to put ourselves in danger as a loss and in the grand Well, I took who we ID Camila Tiga. Don't throw yourself with your own hands into destruction. So these are the points that have to be considered.
Are you the owner of Philips company?
Nope. I'm not the owner of Philips company.
Question from the youtubers students.
Do we have to recite Surah Fatiha when praying behind the Imam in Tahrir Square for example.
As we mentioned before, that if the Quran is recited the law said in the Quran, the Quran is recited, then we should listen.
If we're recite praying behind a mom who's praying silently, then we should recite ourselves. Otherwise we listen as a promise, as Ellen said that the mom was set to be followed.
So we follow him.
he recites the quad. We join him in Amin.
Question from Instagram, because two grammars salaams My husband is non practicing Muslim. And when I asked him
I want to go to Hajj and Umrah. He says no, I have no one else to go with.
What should I do?
Well, a non practicing Muslim.
contradiction in terms.
The Muslim is one who practices Islam.
So one who doesn't practice Islam
is not really a Muslim. So, you know, as some people were going to details in terms of well,
he doesn't practice Islam. But does he say that I don't have to practice Islam.
But he denies the obligation of his practices of Islam on himself. If this does that, then is a disbeliever.
If he says no, no, it sounds right and good and everything else but I'm just too lazy, this and that whatever. And they say oh,
is one who believes in Islam, but have weak faith differences, right? Anyway, bottom line is that you as a woman
should have with you a maximum unless you're going in a group, a safe group that are going on your own, you should have a mahamadou
a male relative who you can marry
from your close male relatives.
The bottom line is that
if you have the intention to make hatch
and your husband prevents you from doing so,
you will get the reward of the hatch. Anyway, for that intention
considering the fact that you are prevented.
inshallah, we will end today's session if we don't have any more questions from Instagram.
Questions from YouTube? We have closed. Yeah, one more question.
Is that Is it okay to name my son Phillips?
Is it okay to name your son? Phillips? Yeah, he wanted to
Yes, what does Phillips mean? Phillips means a horseman in night.
That's what it means. Greek origin, Phillip of mastodon, you can read about
history. That's the name of my family.
That's the name I was born with my family comedy name.
That indicates my genealogy.
The name, which I've chosen for myself, is below.
I was born with another name, besides my family name, then is
but when I converted to Islam, I changed my given name Dennis to be law.
And this is
perfectly acceptable. islamically If I wanted to keep the name Dennis, I could if the name Dennis doesn't have a bad meaning, you know, but if my name was,
you know, any of the names of the gods, etc. begun, Dennis, is this not acceptable?
Can I give up also non Muslim? Yes, we can give support to non Muslims for being charity charity to Muslims and non Muslims to anybody who needs jayati were rewarded for it.
Is there any free courses in your university? Yes, there are virtually free courses there. In our
Diploma in Islamic Studies GDI is a section
it's it's to get into I think it's
Yeah, to get in to the this virtually free program.
There is a membership fee
of $1 per month, that's $12 in a year.
But I believe it was waived during pandemic because so many people had to go online etc. You know, we
removed the fee or maybe it's back now I know last year and 2020 was removed perhaps may be back. So in which case
there will be a fee of $1 per month
or given all at once $12
bottle coffee cool.
So we'll close as usual
subhanak Allahumma will be having deca the shadow.
