00:06:49--> 00:06:50

radiculopathy ecom

00:06:59--> 00:07:05

Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim. Okay, this is our 14th session

00:07:07--> 00:07:09

covering the name

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

Albert it

00:07:13--> 00:07:17

and it is the 17th name in our series.

00:07:18--> 00:07:23

In terms of its location in the Quran, it's mentioned three times in the Quran

00:07:25--> 00:07:28

who Allahu harlequinade Barry Olmos our

00:07:29--> 00:07:34

is a law the Creator, the originator and the fashioner

00:07:36--> 00:07:44

the meaning linguistically scholars actually different about the route from which this name comes

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

some considered that it came from the trilateral route

00:07:50--> 00:07:54

Ba ra Hamza Barea,

00:07:55--> 00:08:00

which means to be free from or distance from something.

00:08:02--> 00:08:11

It is also used to declare innocence from something or someone as well as being free from illness.

00:08:12--> 00:08:21

And the other route from which body is derived is the verbal noun very Yeah.

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

Which means creation

00:08:25--> 00:08:28

and it also means Earth.

00:08:30--> 00:08:39

So, this route appears some 31 times in the grind in 10 different derived forms, for example, tabara

00:08:42--> 00:08:48

beratan body one, Albury, yeah, the creatures,

00:08:50--> 00:08:53

three basic meanings may be derived from the root and body.

00:08:55--> 00:09:15

First meaning is to create and to form out of nothing. The second meaning is to evolve using pre existing matter. And the third meaning is to be individual, free and clear from another and from all fault or blemish.

00:09:18--> 00:09:33

In the context of Allah subhanaw, taala and bad It means that He is the Creator, the originator and the inventor who distinguished all creatures from each other by their multitude of individual characteristics.

00:09:35--> 00:09:59

Moving on to our four principles of even batal for application of the Divine Names, the first one, adopt where applicable, and this Divine Name and body, meaning the Creator, as discussed in our previous session on the Divine Names on holiday

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

No haluk is not applicable to human beings as we are manipulators and not true creators. That's what the La flamme

00:10:13--> 00:10:37

so we cannot adopt it. Consequently, we focused on a laws philosophical arguments related to his creation from nothing which refute the atheist in the Quran, and the need to do our best in whatever work we are committed to. That's what we looked at, with the names of haluk an alcoholic.

00:10:39--> 00:10:40

In this case,

00:10:41--> 00:10:43

we're looking at

00:10:44--> 00:10:57

the aspect of the Divine Name and body which implies evolution as evolving using premium, pre existing matter.

00:10:58--> 00:11:13

So evolving out of a pre existing base, not created creation from nothing. In that way, we can apply the name by understanding the creative evolution of the human being from its beginning.

00:11:15--> 00:11:27

The Quran contains verses which describe the evolving of the human child in the mother's room. I'm sure most of us have heard about that.

00:11:28--> 00:11:43

But it is described it with such accuracy 1000 years before the discovery of the microscope, that there is no doubt about the divine origin of the Quran. For those who are open minded,

00:11:45--> 00:12:11

when professor Dr. Keith Moore, a professor of embryology, and chairman of the Department of anatomy at the University of Toronto, the leading University in Canada, when he was asked to give his opinion concerning the information present in the Quran, concerning embryology, during the seventh medical conference in the mam in 1981. He said,

00:12:12--> 00:12:19

it has been a great pleasure for me to help clarify statements in the ground about human development.

00:12:20--> 00:12:30

It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammad from God, or Allah is not a Muslim.

00:12:31--> 00:12:49

Because almost all of this knowledge was not discovered until many many centuries, centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammad must have been a messenger of God, or Allah, this was his response.

00:12:50--> 00:13:02

And that only opens up a door related to the various wonders about of creation, which the Quran has described,

00:13:03--> 00:13:50

you know, and by reflecting on the wonders of creation mentioned in the grand, which no one in the world knew at the time of its revelation, and scientists would only come to know about them 1400 years later, we underscore with that the reality that the Quran is without a doubt, a revelation from God, the Creator, an originator Allah Abadi. So if we look first, at the water origin of life, water is essential for all living things. We all know that water is vital for life. But Allah in the Quran made an unusual claim.

00:13:51--> 00:14:02

He says there was a nominal man he couldn't really say in high kanashii in high alfalah you can use me noon follow me noon

00:14:04--> 00:14:19

or Joel nominal Maggie Kula Shea in high of ally me noon, I created every living thing from water. Will they not then believe that was a heavy claim at that time.

00:14:21--> 00:14:23

Remember that the Quran was revealed in the desert.

00:14:24--> 00:14:29

In a dry country. No very little water available.

00:14:31--> 00:14:42

The fact that living things consist mostly of water was only discovered after the invention of the microscope in the 17th century.

00:14:44--> 00:14:55

Now scientists claim that 80% of the cytoplasm of a standard cell consists of water. Now the cytoplasm is the majority of the

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

the cell the cell wall

00:15:00--> 00:15:19

You have the nucleus, and then there is matter that stays inside of the cell inside of it there are other elements, but the mass of the content of the cell is cytoplasm. So that is 80% water.

00:15:21--> 00:15:51

And if we look at the issue of iron mentioned in the Quran again. According to modern scientists, iron is not natural to the earth. It was formed on Earth, but came from outer space as iron bearing meteorites, which struck the earth from distant exploding stars billions of years ago. However, the Koran clearly states exactly that

00:15:53--> 00:16:11

was zelner Hadid v back soon sherried. Woman after alumnus, I sent down irony, with its mighty strength, and many uses for humankind is in Surah Al Hadid.

00:16:12--> 00:16:15

Copper is mentioned three times in the Quran.

00:16:16--> 00:16:29

And they'll coordinate for example pours molten copper on the barrier that he set up to block the Gargan the Magog. Iron is mentioned as lead first.

00:16:31--> 00:16:38

And copper is mentioned as a found of copper, copper, copper, copper.

00:16:39--> 00:17:00

But there's no reference of it coming down from outer space as in the case of iron, ore and zelner. And we sat down. So, the Quran addressed a phenomenon which has only been discovered in the 20th century.

00:17:02--> 00:17:05

Copper is mentioned three sorry,

00:17:06--> 00:17:14

mountain pegs. Only in the beginning of the 20th century, scientists developed the theory of plate

00:17:16--> 00:17:34

tectonics, which was built on the newly discovered fact that mountains have deep state like roots. So for example, Mount Everest, whose height is approximately nine kilometres above the ground.

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

It has a route under the ground 125 kilometres.

00:17:42--> 00:17:51

However, the Quran 1400 years ago described mountains or steaks, like the steak, which you use to set up a tent to hold a tent,

00:17:52--> 00:17:56

the various sides you hammer the stake into the ground,

00:17:57--> 00:18:19

the greater portion of it goes under the ground, and a smaller portion stays above the ground that you tie ropes to. So Allah describes it that way alumna Alan Alda, Nihad welgevonden ow Tada. Didn't I make the earth a resting place and the mountains as takes.

00:18:20--> 00:18:21

So behind Allah,

00:18:24--> 00:19:20

Masha Allah. So these are only three examples from many, many other examples of Allah speaking about the world and its contents in ways which have only been discovered in recent times, 1400 years before it's time. And all of this, left in the Quran, of course for the people at the time when the Quran was revealed that it didn't have significance. So Allah has left things which would become significant to us in a time when its significance becomes a major of major importance. So this is part of the miracle of the Quran. The lies left these for every generation, all the generations to come.

00:19:22--> 00:19:24

The second principle of

00:19:25--> 00:19:27

Imam have been but Paul

00:19:29--> 00:19:36

requires us to confirm the unique aspects of the Divine Names it is conform

00:19:37--> 00:19:41

or confirm sorry, were unique and inadequate inapplicable

00:19:44--> 00:19:57

where the names are unique, we have to ensure that these characteristics are only given to a law and not to any of these creatures.

00:19:59--> 00:20:00

So in that way, we

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

reject any efforts to ascribe these attributes to a loss creation.

00:20:06--> 00:20:27

Consequently, having confirmed that a lie is on Holic, and Allah, the only true creator, we can apply this Divine Name and body, the originator by recognizing and accepting that a law alone effortlessly creates everything uniquely different.

00:20:28--> 00:20:34

So for example, in spite of the complexity of the designs of each snowflake,

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

and each grain of sand,

00:20:39--> 00:20:49

and the countless billions and trillions that fall or found on the ground, beaches, etc, all around the world, no two

00:20:52--> 00:21:15

grains of sand. When looked, of course, and you when it's in your hand, you're just seeing it in general, it's why they look the same. But now when you put it out in the microscope, you'll find everyone different. Similarly, the snowflakes, snow that falls, they come in very intricate designs. And, as it's said, and no one, no two snowflakes

00:21:16--> 00:21:17

are alike.

00:21:19--> 00:21:34

Likewise, when scientists look at the fossil record, there are inexplicable events, which took place creating variations of species, defying all evolutionary explanations.

00:21:35--> 00:21:41

The common belief is of Darwin's theory of evolution published in the

00:21:42--> 00:21:48

book that he wrote back in 1859, called on the origin of species.

00:21:49--> 00:22:00

He posited that that time over the apparently sudden appearance of complicated organisms in the fossil record, is at the beginning of the Cambrian period in particular.

00:22:01--> 00:22:39

He noted that this could be used as an argument against his controversial new theory, which predicted a more gradual appearance of similar or simpler organisms. At the time, Darwin pointed out that the fossil record was imperfect. And this was his only defense that complex animal forms must have lived long before the Cambrian, but traces of that life had not been found. So this was the excuse, where did all these creatures come from.

00:22:41--> 00:22:42

However,

00:22:43--> 00:22:47

how much time has passed since the time of Darwin.

00:22:48--> 00:23:01

Archaeologists and anthropologists and others have been searching and searching, they still haven't found what Darwin had said, was probably there.

00:23:03--> 00:23:47

But the Cambrian explosion, that's what is called the Cambrian explosion, which refers to the sudden appearance in the fossil record of complex animals with mineralized skeletal remains. It represents the most important evolutionary event in the history of life on the earth. The beginning of the explosion is generally placed about 542 million years ago, during the Cambrian period, the start of the Paleozoic era, the same time that the idia currents disappear from the fossil record.

00:23:48--> 00:24:24

While the explosion was rapid in geographical terms or geological terms, it took place over millions of years. The Burgess Shale, at 505 million years old, records the tail end of the event. The explosion is particularly remarkable, because all major animal body plans, each more or less corresponding to a distinctive phylum mollusca or Core Data, for example,

00:24:25--> 00:24:31

appeared during this time, changing the biosphere forever.

00:24:33--> 00:24:43

Natural Selection which was supposed to be the mechanism for evolution could not explain its sudden appearance, belief in God

00:24:45--> 00:24:58

where God is the Creator, and when he creates it's not strange for him to create everything or every sets of things at one time.

00:25:00--> 00:25:00

So

00:25:02--> 00:25:28

this this variation is a part of being a body, that He gives each creature its own characteristic. And he can create many creatures with all special characteristics not coming from each other. I mean characteristics which don't link but though they might be similar, because for example, you have what is known as the rhinoceros beetle.

00:25:30--> 00:25:38

And then there's the rhinoceros, rhinoceros beetle, you know, has a head which looks something like a rhinoceros,

00:25:39--> 00:25:46

you know, but it's not really the head. It's like the formation of the exoskeleton. But

00:25:47--> 00:26:09

nonetheless, it has a look of a rhinoceros. But nobody in the world would claim that that evolved into the big rhinoceros that we know today or the big night rhinoceros evolved into it. They both exist. They have similar features, but are totally unrelated. Just like, we have

00:26:11--> 00:26:21

creatures which are related, but they have this similar, you know, features this all of this variety, this comes from our body.

00:26:23--> 00:26:24

So

00:26:25--> 00:27:25

we can take this to human beings. And note that though they all have a common origin, there's so many variations of human beings, whether in sizes, or features, or colors, hair, eyes, etc. We worship Allah through His Divine Name and body by recognizing and affirming his existence, and treating variations among us as evidence of his unique creative attributes, and not the basis for pride or dislike in the Malmo manana echo. For us, the whole band. This is what a lot tells us to do with the variety that exists amongst us is that indeed, the believers are one brotherhood. So mediate between your two brothers, it should not be a basis for arguing etc. But

00:27:26--> 00:27:32

which it's it's a basis for recognizing the greatness of a law in these creatures.

00:27:33--> 00:27:58

And the same way we respect all the different types of cats and cows and dogs and all the other animals, horses, etc. No, we, we enjoy that variety, and we praise it and nobody says this is an inferior horse and that's a superior horse and No, they don't, I mean, accepted with your horse, and you looking down on others.

00:27:59--> 00:28:29

The third principle of women batol is that of hope, where there is a promise, the Divine Name and body does not contain any direct, divine promises. However, the fact that the name also means to be individual, free and clear from one another, and from fault or blemish.

00:28:30--> 00:28:41

It can be used to understand the need to distance ourselves from whatever Allah dislikes,

00:28:43--> 00:29:11

and the opposite come close to whatever Allah likes. So as a general principle, Muslims are instructed by Allah to emigrate to make headwrap from one location to another, whenever they find themselves are pressed, and unable to practice Islam, as it was prescribed. It was made obligatory initially by last one to Allah in the Quran.

00:29:12--> 00:29:33

And he stated there very clearly, when the angels take the souls of those who die in sin against themselves. In alladhina tofa, whom Allah Aika to Lall me and force him they say to them callooh blue FEMA quantum

00:29:34--> 00:29:36

in what flight where you

00:29:37--> 00:29:47

follow? People reply good now mustafina fell armed. We were weak and oppressed in the land.

00:29:48--> 00:30:00

So the angel said to them Paulo alum taken out of the law he was he was eaten for too hard You know, FIA wasn't a laws Earth spirit.

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

enough for you to emigrate away from the evil that you are facing.

00:30:07--> 00:30:21

But Allah wa whom jahannam was at masirah all such people a lot goes on to say, we'll find their abode in hell. What an evil ending.

00:30:23--> 00:30:24

So on the occasion

00:30:26--> 00:30:32

when some Muslims living among a community of isolators

00:30:34--> 00:30:37

were killed by Muslim troops

00:30:38--> 00:31:01

and the case was brought to Prophet Mohammed Salah to rule on and determine whether they deserved the idea or the compensation sometimes called blood money or not the province Our solemn said and our very own men Cooley Muslim in up Medina of Quran mushrikeen

00:31:04--> 00:31:06

I am innocent,

00:31:07--> 00:31:15

free from every Muslim who lives among the idol worshippers. So the people asked

00:31:17--> 00:31:19

limiter sola.

00:31:22--> 00:31:31

And why, why or messenger of Allah? The prophet SAW Selim responded latteria nara Houma

00:31:34--> 00:31:38

they should not see each other's campfires.

00:31:39--> 00:31:40

Meaning that

00:31:41--> 00:31:48

they should be complete, isolated communities, not

00:31:50--> 00:32:20

your neighbor to the front to the side, or to the back, you know, our idol worshippers, so you're just one in their midst, no Muslims should be together. So this prophetic statement indicates that Muslims living in non Muslim dominated lands should form their own communities and live among them. And this is how it is in many places, in the east, in India,

00:32:22--> 00:32:23

or elsewhere.

00:32:25--> 00:32:30

Muslim Muslims being a minority, in a will live together in Nepal,

00:32:32--> 00:32:32

etc.

00:32:34--> 00:32:35

is the common practice.

00:32:37--> 00:32:38

But

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

Muslims who make hedra to the west

00:32:43--> 00:32:48

usually don't make this a consideration. They're just going to live anywhere and everywhere.

00:32:51--> 00:33:14

So, this statement of the prophet SAW Selim indicates that the principles of hedra continues to apply as long as the need is there. Many Muslims living in the West are unaware of these instructions, and others like it and casually live in the midst of non Muslims exposing themselves and their children to great harm.

00:33:15--> 00:33:40

Some do manage to create their own communities where all the amenities like schools, pharmacies, shops, restaurants, etc. are provided to make the community self sufficient and protect its weaker members from harm. But these are few there are a number of them spread out across North America and elsewhere.

00:33:42--> 00:33:44

Then Allah smart Allah

00:33:45--> 00:33:51

actually had canceled the obligation of Hydra after the conquest of Mecca.

00:33:53--> 00:34:02

So when the process Elam was asked about he said, clearly la hijikata burn fat. we're lacking Jihad on wynia.

00:34:04--> 00:34:19

The Messenger of Allah said there is no obligatory Hydra remaining after the conquest of Mecca. But Jihad and its intention remain because the struggle will always be there till the last day

00:34:20--> 00:34:29

and having the proper intention for intention for making hedra needs to be there for it to be rewardable commendable.

00:34:30--> 00:34:39

However, the prophets also clarified that while hindraf to Mecca had ended, recommended hidrive remained commendable.

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

He said, Latin uttaran Hydra had that and then Katya Toba, Latin Katya Toba had taught lira shamsul min Malaviya headrow will not end until making repentance ends and making repentance

00:35:00--> 00:35:07

will not end until the sun rises from its place of setting rises from the west.

00:35:08--> 00:35:22

So hedra still remains as a recommended practice. Whenever Muslims find themselves in difficulty, they're encouraged to emigrate.

00:35:23--> 00:35:36

But hildred doesn't necessarily mean going from America to Makkah to Sudan, or Pakistan.

00:35:37--> 00:35:39

War walk from one country to another,

00:35:41--> 00:35:42

over

00:35:43--> 00:35:45

large areas of water etc.

00:35:46--> 00:35:54

Although the first hedra of the province, our sunlamps companions was from one country to another, from Arabia to Habesha

00:35:55--> 00:35:56

from

00:35:58--> 00:36:08

across the waters, however, the main Hydra of the prophet SAW Selim and his companions was from the city of Mecca to the city of Medina.

00:36:09--> 00:36:54

Likewise, today, we should be prepared to move from city to city, or from one part of a city to another part of the city, to live amongst Muslims. As the prophet SAW Allah instructed, we build a Masjid, we should move our families around that facet, not just build the masjid and everybody's living, you know, at great distances, so people can easily come and attack the masjid. And of course, this is something that's happening and every time something happens with Muslims, which involves non Muslims, then you know, non Muslims get upset and they go, they throw paint on or they may cut off a pig's head and throw it on the entrance of the masjid, all kinds of things going on.

00:36:57--> 00:37:12

But the process alum also left a general principle regarding hedra, which indicates for us that it is a state of mind that we have to have, he said Al muhajir, oh, man, hajra man, her loved one.

00:37:13--> 00:37:23

The real immigrant is the one who emigrate from what Allah has probably been prohibited, that is the true immigrant.

00:37:25--> 00:37:29

So the Divine Name and body

00:37:31--> 00:37:34

can be applied in this manner,

00:37:35--> 00:37:41

distancing ourselves, or oneself from what is displeasing to Allah

00:37:42--> 00:37:48

remains highly commendable in the etiquette and teachings of Islam.

00:37:49--> 00:38:03

Now, the fourth principle of women befallen fear where there is a warning, the fact of the matter is that he, Allah and body is the only true creator.

00:38:04--> 00:38:16

As the only true creator, only he can compel us to do what is right. And in which case, we lose the reward of doing it.

00:38:17--> 00:38:23

And that should motivate us to go ahead and do the right thing. Whenever we get the chance.

00:38:25--> 00:38:38

That's what's going to happen. Whatever Allah wills is going to happen anyway. So better for us to have that intention ourselves. That way, we get the full reward of doing the right thing.

00:38:40--> 00:38:41

Now,

00:38:42--> 00:38:51

belief in the divine a mulberry is the only as the only being able to create from nothing

00:38:52--> 00:39:16

should also restore confidence to the believers, as today's scientists dazzle the world they have become the prophets of our generation. Whatever the scientists say, we follow. They're amazing. They're able to do so many, you know, amazing discoveries, coming out with new things all the time.

00:39:17--> 00:39:22

And among the things that they've come out with over the years is creation.

00:39:23--> 00:39:42

The scientific world is filled with arrogance, pride, and outrageous claims. The media pumps it up. True scientists know that the more they know, the more they learn is the more they realize they don't know.

00:39:44--> 00:39:59

However, the media sensationalizes the new discoveries and exaggerate their details people Oh, wow out bowled over. Consequently, in this 1960s and 70s scientific

00:40:00--> 00:40:09

understanding of the events in the human Oh site, the immature ovum.

00:40:11--> 00:40:23

fertilization grew to a point that in vitro fertilization IVF of human allsides became possible that

00:40:25--> 00:40:29

putting sperm cells with over

00:40:30--> 00:40:34

female cells externally,

00:40:36--> 00:40:44

became possible. And ultimately, this knowledge led to the widely acclaimed first live birth

00:40:45--> 00:41:37

of what came to be known as a test tube baby. As the term they used test tube baby. Her name was Louise Brown, in England, in 1978. For most people, when they heard that test you baby, they envisioned that the scientists were mixing up chemicals in test tubes on and heating them and doing whatever else they do to them. Until eventually, they found the right mix and were able to make a human baby. However, that's so far from reality and the truth that it's laughable. It is it is so far, because it has nothing to do with taking, you know, the, the components of a human being mixing it all up, stirring it all up in a pot that, you know,

00:41:38--> 00:42:02

whatever, and pouring it out. And here comes a baby with it. No, this was simply mixing living sperm with living ovum that didn't take dead sperm and dead ovum, and then did something easy. Oh, wow, these were dead and now they're alive. They took a living living these already have the life force in them from their owners,

00:42:04--> 00:42:06

mixing them in a dish outside the body.

00:42:08--> 00:42:30

And after the fertilization takes place, it's put them in the womb of the mother or the woman. That's all it's just taking a process which is gonna happen anyway. It's a normal process and letting it happen outside of the body instead of inside the body. So is this creation is this test you baby?

00:42:32--> 00:42:46

A lot of ridicule such claims and those who make them by categorically stating that they will never, ever be able to create even a living fly.

00:42:48--> 00:42:49

Much Does a dead one.

00:42:51--> 00:43:01

Such exaggerated claims make ignorant people think that science is now able or will soon be able to do anything and everything.

00:43:02--> 00:43:13

But the bitter truth is that a law says they cannot and will not ever create even a nasty little living fly.

00:43:15--> 00:43:52

Allah says in Surah, Al Hajj, all humankind, a parable is made. So listen to it. In these those on whom you call, besides a lot cannot create even a fly lania fuku Lu Baba, even if they collaborate together for the purpose, and if the fly snatches from them anything, they won't have an any power to snatch it back. how weak are the seeker and the salt?

00:43:53--> 00:43:55

So the gross media impact

00:43:56--> 00:43:57

on people in the West

00:43:58--> 00:44:06

through the media is turning them into atheists today at an alarming rate.

00:44:07--> 00:44:19

In New Zealand, of all places, in 1998, more than 79% of the people believed in God.

00:44:20--> 00:44:31

But by 20 1810 years later, less than 33% believed in God

00:44:32--> 00:44:33

Subhana Allah

00:44:35--> 00:44:48

Furthermore, the youth that is teenagers between the ages of 15 and 19 their suicide rate in New Zealand is the highest in the world.

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

twice as high as in the US five times as I as in the UK, the youngest recorded case of suicide in

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

New Zealand is a seven year old

00:45:04--> 00:45:07

Suba halala. As unthinkable?

00:45:09--> 00:45:21

Well, my mother in law, her capacity in the law and law has is they have not properly estimated a law. Indeed a law is all powerful, and all mighty

00:45:22--> 00:45:52

reality is that if we gathered all of the Earth's modern scientists, and their cutting edge technologies from all around the world, and collected the chemicals and minerals, which make up the body of the fly, mix them up, add electrodes, sending electrical current into the mix, and see if a living fly comes out,

00:45:53--> 00:46:30

no fly will emerge, they will not be able to do it, this is the reality, they will never be able to do it. Of course, in many of their minds, they may feel that they can do it. And they will do it sometime in the future. And in a lot of cases where they had this feeling it did come through true. But this is not for something as basic as creating life is only a matter of time, they say. But the reality is that

00:46:33--> 00:46:34

it will never happen.

00:46:36--> 00:47:14

So whatever estimations they may give, you know, as they're working towards this end, you know, along with working towards a eradicating death, you know, they're saying that we have a time clock, everybody has a time clock. And if you're able to get to that time clock and stop it, then you will live on without dying. This is a dream people have people have, you know, been so motivated with this dream that they've had their bodies frozen,

00:47:15--> 00:47:16

and

00:47:17--> 00:47:21

fired off into space. And rockets

00:47:22--> 00:47:50

being kept there until the time comes when they discover the cure for death out to bring you back and bring back your rocket and get you up and running again. Or some people they have discounted versions where you just take your head off, I just save your head because everything is the brain anyway. Right? According to them. They see that as being you you are what's in your brain.

00:47:51--> 00:48:07

So they save the heads. And they can put more heads on a rocket, you know, than just the whole body. So this is their hope. Add the hope of those who don't believe in God.

00:48:08--> 00:48:09

Otherwise,

00:48:10--> 00:48:12

there's no reason

00:48:13--> 00:48:58

to think that this will ever happen. If Allah has told us, they will not be able to bring back even a fly, then know that nobody is coming back. Science will never reach that point where they can bring people back after they've died. No, yeah, we talked about, you know, CPR and this person, hard stops and you present is just and you know, he starts breathing again and its heart starts beating and okay. But you hadn't died, they know there's a period of time. If it is last beyond that point. That's it, there's no coming back. It's finished. You know.

00:49:00--> 00:49:01

So,

00:49:03--> 00:49:52

death, life. This is all in the Lord's hands. He is the Creator and body. He gives life to what he creates. He takes life from what he creates. And this is his sphere. We worship him according to those great powers which he has those powers which go far beyond anything we can imagine. And as such, we glorify Him, thank him for creating us, giving us life giving us this life and we pray that he gives us a place a good place in the life to come.

00:49:54--> 00:49:55

We'll close our session

00:49:57--> 00:49:59

calling on a lie using these names.

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

Oh Allah yeah bad it. We know that what you create and form is from nothing.

00:50:10--> 00:50:19

Make us confident about our belief in you as the originator of everything and let us worship you alone.

00:50:20--> 00:50:37

Guide us to obey you. distance ourselves from bad, enjoin good and forbid evil. Help us to reflect on your creation and appreciate your power and greatness. Yeah baddie,

00:50:39--> 00:50:51

blesses to give thanks to you regularly and make us of those who carry the message of your oneness to others in the best way. I mean,

00:50:52--> 00:50:58

Baraka logical Salaam Alaikum aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato

00:51:01--> 00:51:02

will now

00:51:03--> 00:51:10

shift over to the second part of our program, which today will be

00:51:11--> 00:51:12

extra short.

00:51:13--> 00:51:16

Sorry about that, but

00:51:20--> 00:51:22

time does not permit.

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

inshallah,

00:51:28--> 00:51:31

we will go through your questions.

00:51:34--> 00:51:34

And

00:51:36--> 00:51:40

think we'll only be taking five questions

00:51:41--> 00:51:45

today, or if they're short, maybe we can take 10

00:51:46--> 00:51:49

but we're going to keep it short and shallow.

00:51:52--> 00:52:00

Okay, one question. aboubaker. So the man is asking, what's the difference between the name Allah, Allah Zack, and l Ronnie?

00:52:01--> 00:52:26

Just the meaning in Arabic alone, there's a basic different difference. You know, rezac implies having rich richness and giving it out. alleghany focuses on the richness which one has, but we'll be looking at the names in more detail. We'll come to all of these inshallah.

00:52:29--> 00:52:36

From our Instagram, can a woman do decaf at home? There's no photograph in the home.

00:52:37--> 00:52:40

At the gaff is in the masjid.

00:52:49--> 00:52:50

Question.

00:52:51--> 00:52:55

My daughter's last name is bint severe.

00:52:57--> 00:52:58

Al Karim?

00:52:59--> 00:53:03

Is that name acceptable? As it is Allah Kareem.

00:53:05--> 00:53:28

I believe that if it is Al Karim and not al Karim, because these are two names is a very close when you said quickly al Karim sounds like Al Karim, what's the difference? But one is actually Kareem, like Ali Emraan al means the family of whereas al means the

00:53:29--> 00:53:31

most total.

00:53:32--> 00:53:39

So I believe it's probably al Karim, which is permissible.

00:53:40--> 00:53:42

But But I'll carry him. No.

00:53:45--> 00:53:54

Faisal, Holly, is it necessary to wake up the whole night complete and not sleep for a minute?

00:53:56--> 00:53:57

In the last 10 nights

00:53:58--> 00:53:59

of

00:54:02--> 00:54:04

the last 10 days.

00:54:05--> 00:54:07

It's called shabby coder.

00:54:09--> 00:54:09

No,

00:54:11--> 00:54:13

it's not necessary to do that.

00:54:15--> 00:54:20

You can get up and do your dadgad

00:54:21--> 00:54:28

in each of the nights, or focus on the odd nights as Professor Solomon said, you can find it in the odd nights.

00:54:32--> 00:54:34

But no at the same time that

00:54:35--> 00:54:37

if there was a mistake in the calculation

00:54:38--> 00:54:41

at the beginning for the beginning of Ramadan for you

00:54:43--> 00:54:52

what was an odd night becomes an evil night and what was an even night becomes an odd night. So to be safe, it's better to keep the

00:54:53--> 00:54:59

dadgad going through the last 10 days all of them as 10 nights as you will

00:55:00--> 00:55:04

done for the first 20 of Ramadan

00:55:10--> 00:55:12

question from Hassan al Bukhari

00:55:13--> 00:55:15

what is the hokum

00:55:16--> 00:55:19

on hijab day are celebrating the world hijab day? Well,

00:55:21--> 00:55:24

you know, celebrations

00:55:25--> 00:55:36

in general, where it's a celebration in the sense that we are, you know, coming together and celebrating something,

00:55:39--> 00:55:54

they promise I sell them and it becomes holiday, you know, and all the other things that are connected with it, in a way only, we only have two of those processes, it will fitter and able,

00:55:55--> 00:55:56

that's it,

00:55:57--> 00:56:01

but a day in the year

00:56:02--> 00:56:11

in order to promote the hijab, because the hijab came under attack

00:56:12--> 00:56:13

all around the world.

00:56:15--> 00:56:18

And we want to make people aware of it, etc.

00:56:20--> 00:56:46

Then, to utilize that day, the day designated day in order to promote knowledge about the hijab, without necessarily going and parades and, and, you know, demonstration like, events and, you know, like a carnival type know,

00:56:47--> 00:56:53

just to promote things concerning the job on that day. That's okay.

00:56:54--> 00:57:02

So our tour was theory, does alberi also mean an include originator of thought,

00:57:06--> 00:57:09

and body is the originator of everything,

00:57:10--> 00:57:17

everything that comes into existence, which did not exist before, he is the originator.

00:57:18--> 00:57:22

Now, the fact that thought,

00:57:24--> 00:57:32

is originated by a law, meaning that a law allows that thought to take place,

00:57:33--> 00:58:05

it doesn't mean that you don't take responsibility. When you act on the thought, No, you are responsible. If you had a bad thought, you're not held responsible for that bad thought. This is the mercy of Allah, Allah, he doesn't hold us accountable for bad thoughts. Although if we had a good thought, we reflected on it, then we get the reward, even if we don't do it. But the bad thought we're only punished when we actually act on the thought.

00:58:10--> 00:58:13

If I believe is that allows creation.

00:58:15--> 00:58:55

If allows creations are flawless, then why are some kids born with physical disabilities? Well, it's not that allows creation are flawless. They're the game in fact, all of the creations can contain flaws. They're not perfect. Perfection only belongs to Allah. Allah is the only one who is perfect. All that has been created, and has been created according to His plan. And in each and every human being just as we make errors in our decisions, in our thoughts in our actions.

00:58:56--> 00:59:00

Then also, with our bodies, we sometimes make

00:59:01--> 00:59:04

errors, we try to

00:59:06--> 00:59:13

pluck our eyebrows do things which are forbidden, sometimes harmful to ourselves.

00:59:14--> 00:59:16

Sometimes it's based on

00:59:17--> 00:59:30

how Allah created us where some things are not in the place that they're supposed to be. So we have cosmetic surgery for fixing things that didn't come out, right.

00:59:32--> 00:59:33

That's permissible.

00:59:34--> 00:59:35

But

00:59:36--> 00:59:48

fixing things which came out right, but you just don't like it. You know, my nose is too big. I need to get a smaller nose or whatever my ears are flapping out, I need to get my air spin back.

00:59:49--> 01:00:00

This kind of is despised in Islam, you know, changing laws creation, fixing where things were not quite

01:00:00--> 01:00:07

Right, children born with disabilities teaching them and helping them physically provide, you know,

01:00:09--> 01:00:15

artificial limbs and whatever, this is all a part of the tests of this life.

01:00:16--> 01:00:20

And yes, Ally's The one who

01:00:21--> 01:00:31

had that child born that way. And that's your test. That's what you are responsible to deal with? How are you going to deal with it? Are you going to look at the lights?

01:00:36--> 01:00:48

After watching Dr. xakanaxa videos, I learned that drawing or painting pictures of living beings, like animals are not permissible. What can a student do is practicing to be a doctor?

01:00:49--> 01:01:03

No, this is, you know, if you're, if you're using images, for understanding the different parts of the body, etc, etc, this is this is permissible, you know,

01:01:04--> 01:01:05

of course,

01:01:06--> 01:01:39

Muslim textbooks would take into account you know, certain things because the head is the core, the key, you know, for the animals, if the head is missing, if you're just dealing with the rest of the body, there are many different ways you know, around it, but the idea is of displaying images, which are beauty images, you know, images of sports or something like that of fame and etc, you know, then we are

01:01:40--> 01:02:00

discouraged from creating such images. If the image is already there, again, that's another situation his books are printed in, in the West, the US and the UK and Europe etc. books come like that, you know, whatever images there which are not appropriate.

01:02:01--> 01:02:14

We're not held accountable for if it is something particularly inappropriate, we can use in a whiteout or whatever to cover certain parts, which you know are

01:02:17--> 01:02:18

displeasing, islamically

01:02:22--> 01:02:24

from time

01:02:25--> 01:02:26

chef shares,

01:02:27--> 01:02:58

people usually these days make hedra for the purpose of money. Is this valid while the process element said you know, the headdress for whatever your intention is. So, if your intention from the headdress for the sake of Allah and His messenger to protect your deen, etc, to spread the deen, etc, then the hairdryer is rewarded with Audible for you. But if you're a hindrance, just money, okay? If you made good money didn't disobey Allah and doing it, etc, then it was okay for you.

01:02:59--> 01:03:01

But, you know, if your

01:03:02--> 01:03:22

hedra is just for citizenship, because you want that citizenship to it's a matter of pride and things like this, then your intentions behind the hedra are going to determine how Allah looks at your act of hatred. You know, whether it's rewardable or whether it is punishable

01:03:24--> 01:03:36

from our Instagram students, can a woman join the Air Force? I want to be a pilot but I'm not sure if it's permissible or not because

01:03:38--> 01:03:40

well, the airforce

01:03:42--> 01:03:48

I would say there are many different capacities to be with the Air Force.

01:03:50--> 01:03:50

Now

01:03:52--> 01:03:54

as a woman, as you said,

01:03:55--> 01:04:38

it's not going to be that appropriate because the very garments that you have to wear will expose your our, your private parts, the body parts, in a way which is despicable, that's not pleasing to Allah pramanik and get by because this, our area is much more limited. So, you know, he can wear materials, which don't expose between the navel and the knee, you know, it's the material is bulky enough that it's not showing, showing or exposing those private parts. But I would say

01:04:39--> 01:04:41

leave that dream

01:04:42--> 01:04:49

of being a fighter pilot, you want to, you know, fly that F 16 or whatever, it's now the FF 80 you

01:04:51--> 01:04:59

leave that if you want to work in the you know, other areas of administration. You know, the

01:05:00--> 01:05:10

Communication and whatever related to it nor just don't compromise your deen just so you can be a

01:05:12--> 01:05:19

so on. So, you know, you can learn how to fly and fly private planes on the luck

01:05:21--> 01:05:22

you can fulfill that

01:05:23--> 01:05:24

desire

01:05:25--> 01:05:26

to fly.

01:05:33--> 01:05:47

How to remove black magic from our home and from humans? Well it depends on the way in which it's affecting. We have

01:05:48--> 01:05:49

Quranic

01:05:53--> 01:06:23

readings from the last two poles of the Quran, clouds Robin Falak and cloud Robin as these were revealed to deal with black magic, or magic in general, there really is no such thing as black magic, because then you're gonna say, okay, there's white magic. What's the white magic? Good magic? Huh? We got a problem here, you know. So let's just call it magic.

01:06:24--> 01:06:29

All right, so we have those we have other dwis with sponsors, and I'm taught

01:06:30--> 01:06:39

to risk recite over people as a means of exercising evil, driving it off, etc. So we take those

01:06:42--> 01:06:54

methods which the processor has taught us the incantations and recitals etc. And we stay away from those things which don't have prophetic sanction,

01:06:55--> 01:07:08

like blowing on water, and then drinking this water or passing it on selling it, whatever business of blowing on oil, you know, reading certain surahs over bottles of oil and people use that to rub on their bodies

01:07:09--> 01:07:25

or writing saffron on you know, plates and pouring water over it and drinking it and that all these practices which have become widespread, which have no basis in the Quran, and Sunnah. Leave them

01:07:26--> 01:07:31

leave them just stick with what was so lost a lot of them gave us

01:07:34--> 01:07:37

and in the home in general, the promise on Solomon said,

01:07:38--> 01:08:06

read Surah Al Baqarah. That doesn't mean clicking the player and just have it playing throwback cars playing day in day out. No, no. He said, read, recite Surah Baqarah. You read it reflect on its meaning. So you read the Arabic and you read the English together. When you complete that reading, reading of Surah Baqarah. In the home, your home will be protected for three days and nights.

01:08:07--> 01:08:10

This is what the process Allah told us, so just do it.

01:08:11--> 01:08:26

Maryam Margot, Sir, my friend says she will not pray Salah taraweeh she can't understand the Koran. And she is not rewarded for listening. As she can't understand it.

01:08:29--> 01:08:30

Makes sense.

01:08:32--> 01:08:40

It makes sense. For her it is probably better for her to read the Quran at home.

01:08:41--> 01:09:22

Tarawera agricoltura tahajjud. This she can do using the surahs that she knows and she can pray it at home herself. This tarawih in the masjid know that this was not the most common practice of the prophet SAW Selim. But it's it's practiced and it was allowed and they did it. So her decision is quite understandable and acceptable by her reading the current instead, as I've mentioned number numerous occasions, that even just reading Surah Al Baqarah.

01:09:24--> 01:09:48

in Ramadan, along with the tafsir to understand what it's saying its reward is many times over, standing with long resuscitations, which you don't understand you're struggling to stay awake and falling asleep and you know, flopping and flipping from side to side, whatever, you know, struggling to keep your eyes open.

01:09:50--> 01:09:59

We have the dean makes sense. And the browser said and said a dino user. Religion is easy. It's comfortable.

01:10:00--> 01:10:02

So do what is comfortable.

01:10:03--> 01:10:15

And the reward is far greater than doing things which are uncomfortable, where you can't get into it, you're just going through the ritual, etc, etc. For sure.

01:10:16--> 01:10:19

That is a correct decision on herbart.

01:10:22--> 01:10:24

kosamba Zubair is asking

01:10:26--> 01:10:51

how can a Muslim be successful and productive without losing his or her Deen? Oh, come on, be productive and successful. You have to lose your dean? Of course not. There are millions of ways, as many ways there are to disobey Allah and break the principles of the dean etc. In order to

01:10:53--> 01:10:58

be successful, there are halaal ways which are perfectly acceptable,

01:10:59--> 01:11:04

pleasing to Allah, etc. to be productive and successful.

01:11:12--> 01:11:15

Is it permissible to read other religions or the scriptures? Yes.

01:11:16--> 01:11:22

To read them, not reading them seeking guidance, because the guidance is there in the Koran,

01:11:23--> 01:11:52

but reading them to see what is there, what the people believed in, etc, because you're making doubt to them, is good for you to be able to, you know, speak to them in terms of their own beliefs and practices. And the last question, is it okay for Christians, Christian leaders to prepare if tar for Muslims and invite Muslims to go to church premises and have their f star bring their mother there? That's

01:11:54--> 01:12:34

it this is a means to carry the message of Islam, to other communities, sharing with them, let them come to know what Muslims do and such such Yeah. And then what you do is that after you they've invited you you've come and pray then you invite them to the masjid actually, you should be the one you know, who are doing these things. First, you invite them to the masjid. So it becomes the normal practice of you inviting them to the masjid, they have the entire meal with that, in fact, even encourage them to fast a day along with just one day. You know, I have the law here and copper.

01:12:35--> 01:13:06

and elsewhere in the UAE, you know, we did this, we encourage non Muslims to join us in fasting, the first day of Ramadan, and hamdulillah quite a few accepted Islam out of it. Just the experience of fasting. You know, it was so moving and touching for them that, you know, it caused them to want to look more into Islam, and they accepted it. barnacle optical. So with that, we're going to end our

01:13:07--> 01:13:17

q&a session and we hope to see you in our next class on Saturday. Because Friday is our day off.

01:13:19--> 01:13:31
