This is session 17.
And in it we'll be looking at two names, I'll call here and I'll call
the resistible the dominator names number
22 and 23
is mentioned twice in the Quran.
among them who will call hero folk by mid will who will Hakeem on Kabir. He is the irresistible above his servants and he is the wise the all knowing. So while an arm or a 61
the Divine Name alcohol is mentioned six times in the Koran. Among them is Cooley Law who Holly kukuli Shea or who will wha hidden Bahar say Allah is the Creator of everything. And he is the one who subdues
the meaning of a har
begins with the trilateral route from which it came off
and the verb verbal noun, the monster from which they are derived his
which itself refers primarily to subjugation,
to force subdue, and tame something against its wish.
It is also said that the words kahar and ca here come from the verbal root fahara
which has three basic sets of meanings. The first set of meanings are to overcome, to overpower to dominate, or to prevail over the second set of meanings are to subdue and to subjugate. And the third meaning is to compel someone against their wishes.
The verbal noun route of gohar appears 10 times in the Quran, in three different derived forms. For example, of these forms we have dukkha which means to pray, to oppress, and as a plural noun, I will call Haruna. The subject gaiters linguistically the word Bahar sub Nur, is the intensive form of the present participle, here, the resistible
on the pattern file, and we've come across a pattern used as an intensive form in a number of names,
indicating the highest level of total dominance. However, relative to Allah, this Divine Name of kahar means the one with majestic strength.
He has this supreme authority and ultimate power to do anything and everything.
He can subdue anyone or anything to compel him or
her, her or it to do as He wills.
The one supreme power and Guadalupe Bahar we mentioned that
as one of the
alcohol or in Al Quran, and it's a common combination. In fact, there are six different verses in the Quran, which have this powerful Divine Name combined with a lower head a lower
this combination stresses the uniqueness of a laws, domination of creation. On the day of judgment, after all are resurrected, the ultimate question will be asked and answered. The man in mood Coolio lilla Hill wha huddle Bahar delay Hill wa hidden kahar To whom does the kingdom belong today? It belongs only to Allah, the One the dominator
ally informs us that every single being in the universe submits to him willingly or unwillingly.
And that is by the power and force of his name, his divine name of the heart and the meaning that comes from it.
This supreme power rests with him alone.
The sky's the earth, the angels, and all of existence obeys him.
Alcohol has left us no choice,
either we come to him willingly or he will make us come to him. Anyway.
He then said to the sky and to the earth come both of you willingly or unwillingly. And they both said, we come willingly.
application of the Divine Names
according to a bin backhauls four principles.
The first of those principles is to adopt where applicable. Of course, all of these names are inapplicable
in the ultimate sense,
once you put out before it, we are not allowed to take that name, we cannot call ourselves
or alcohol or
calling ourselves call here.
For it to be a name is permissible.
And Bahar is as level above that in terms of strength. That's permissible, but alcohol, no.
So, these two Divine Names, the dominating subtour, I'll call I'll call hero and alcohol should be first applied as a reminder of the incredibly amazing gift. Allah has given us by subduing the creation for our use and pleasure
and making them some doable, not only subduing them, but also making them sub doable to us.
Without his subduing interference. If he just created things as his and left it,
dogs wouldn't be man's best best friend, or cats, women's best friend, nor would the horses be fit for riding. And donkeys and mules be fit for carrying our goods. cows, goats buffaloes, and camels dimension a few just couldn't be milked. Chickens wouldn't produce eggs for us to eat, nor could we eat mutton or beef, we would not be able to use birds to scary our messages,
or to eat them, nor would be able to catch fish in the sea, or enjoy the beauty of the coral reefs.
These animals we refer to as domesticated, meaning that they have been selectively bred and genetically adapted over generations to live alongside humans. Because we have a whole bunch of animals out there that are in the wild. We call them wild animals. On these animals, you just can't treat them the same. I mean, you might try to you have people who raise Panthers, tigers lions in their homes, as little babies from there in the early stage, and they become comfortable with the human presence. But you know, you hear of cases every so often, where the tiger just
bite its owner, and wonder why why did it but because it's in its nature to do that. But still, Allah gave us
this bar over them, that we can, to a large degree control them even the wild animals.
They are genetically distinct from their wild ancestors or cousins. This is how they
what we call domesticated
animals. However, if a lot of kaha hadn't made them in such a way that we could breed them and raise them, they wouldn't have done so.
They wouldn't have been domesticated
nor would they live alongside us peacefully as they do.
Furthermore, Allah has also given us the power to dominate and subdue the remainder of the creation as Muslims.
This ability should be used for good and not exploitation, as it has many times in the past 1000s of years.
on countless occasions, we were liberated, who freed nations under oppression, and brought them development, freedom and justice. But when the accumulated earthly riches changed our administration's into opulent, corrupt kingdoms, our people suffered, and they even joined forces with our enemies to overthrow us. So after 700 years of Muslim rule of Spain,
the ban was no longer called from the minarets of the masks. Masks were turned into churches, and almost every last Muslim was driven from the country. Some even took their keys to their homes with them, and they still have them there in Morocco.
Those who remained had to pretend they were Christians to survive, and then a generation or two they're all they also disappeared. Likewise, Muslims ruled India for 1000 years. But today, Muslims are beaten to death in the streets of India, for slaughtering cows for eating cows, eating beef, or gathering in mosques for doubling gatherings during the pandemic, pandemic.
we should first and foremost apply these two names by worshiping Allah. In gratitude through these names our pa here and Al Bahar. By utilizing the powers of subjugation Allah has given us together as one global oma, in accordance with the guidelines of the Sharia. That's a first point of application.
this Master pojar
a key element
in the learning of the Quran. In my dresses across the oma today
it's the common method of teaching in Muslim religious schools.
A practice of meeting the kids teaching with the stick, as it's called.
This methodology has built up over generations to become a norm that people are accustomed to
practice primarily the Quran is taught with the stick in the vast majority of mud dresses around the Muslim world.
The more islands are Muslim teachers in the positions of authority have abused generations of Muslim children in the name of teaching the Quran.
While this was certainly not the methodology of the prophet SAW salon, or his companions, though it's become a norm now and defended firmly, strongly by the teachers have the addresses
the testimony of the prophet SAW salams companion warrior Ibn Al hakam, as salami is definitive
he said regarding the province on Salaam Mata I tomo Andaman
Pablo, whatever other who, Senator Lehman men who have not seen any teacher before him or after him, who was better at teaching than him for our law he Maharani wala Domini.
For Biola he didn't frown at me or hit me or curse me
while I shatter many
this was the province
he taught without even frowning.
It students, those who he was teaching much less cursing them and hitting them.
But that is the norm now.
In the Middle East in the Gulf where I am
it's very common for the teachers to call the students Mr.
while hitting them.
When I went to my son's
madrasah, which was supposed to be one of the best in the UAE
I visited there and saw the teacher sitting with a number of objects beside him.
Some made from plastic, some from wood, some from
sticks. I asked my
kids afterwards What was all that about? He said, Do you know the
one limb it was done?
If we've done something wrong, we had to choose the the stick that we're going to be hit with.
I was shocked. You know, and I was promised when I brought them into school that there was no hitting going on. They wouldn't be they wouldn't be hit.
In any lie when I lay Roger on
the profits as alum
was the gentle way.
his companion and his Sydney Malik, who was his
personal servant, you could say he used to carry
water for will do with the for the province on salami followed him everywhere. He was given by his parents to the process alum as his personal second.
He said on one occasion while we were in the masjid with the Messenger of Allah, Amanda when entered and urinated in the masjid, they began urinating. The Companions of Allah's Messenger scolded him shouting Ma Ma, the Messenger of Allah immediately said to them, don't stop him from urinating, leave him alone.
So they left him until he finished urinating. Then the prophet SAW Selim called him over and said to him, passing urine and filth is not suitable in these masks of ours. Instead, they're only appropriate for the remembrance of Allah. prayer and recitation of Quran.
Promise on Sunday, then instructed a man from among the people
who went and came back with a bucket of water and poured it over the affected area of the masjid.
This was the prophet SAW Simon's way. I mean, of course, there's an element of wisdom, because if they jumped on him, as their companions are getting ready to jump on him.
If they jumped on him while he was urinating, then you know, of course, what's gonna happen, it's gonna, you know, end up urinating on them.
So it was wise to let him finish and not attack him in the midst of doing his business.
But beyond that, from the prophetic way, it was to teach that individual was the masjid in those days was made of sand.
So, it's not a big deal. I mean, today, if somebody was urinating in a corner of the masjid, you know, it's a bigger deal. But bottom line is, the Bronx also dealt with him gently. He just explained to him that this is not appropriate in this location. They obviously didn't know. He wasn't doing it to hurt Muslims, feelings, or anything is anyone This was their way, you know, they would just do their business wherever they found a spot
whenever they felt like it.
So, this innovated satanic methodology
of teaching with the stick crept in among Muslims over generations, because the opposite didn't come from that first generation. Bahasa Sallam didn't teach the companions with the stick. Nor did the companions teach amongst themselves with the stick, nor did they teach the next generation, the tabia in with a stick, nor the generation after them. Those are the first three generations also Solomon said the best of generation
are my generation, then those who come after them, then those who come
After. So in those first three generations, you don't have record of people being taught with a stick after that, going into the fourth generation a satirize Islam spread
into other areas. And this practice which may have been common amongst other nations that Islam spread to, started to creep in.
And Muslims began to adopt it.
This ended up as it is today, as a standard practice.
It also led to the fabrication of heartbeats, claiming that one who memorize the whole crop
and retained it would be able to carry seven family members. And some narration said seven generations of family members with them, the one who memorized for and could carry seven family members or seven generations of family members with them to paradise. So behind Allah.
Consequently, it's not uncommon to find fathers in the Indian subcontinent, designating one of their children, to memorize the whole Quran, and to keep it memorized in order to save the rest of the family, or generations of families.
what would happen, that father would designate one, and the rest of the family, it was their duty to look after this, this one, this one, usually it's male, you know, your job, tell him is to memorize
that you're going to take us to gym, we'll go out and do all the work and whatever, we have to take rebar, we have to cheat, we have to do whatever we have to do, we do it, we take care of the dunya. But you take care of the crap and for us.
this lead also to
further severe harshness in trying to achieve the goal, by any means necessary. And this is, okay, as you can imagine, if it's a ticket to paradise, then you're gonna beat that kid to make that ticket available. So that's further motivation to this.
And this reached such levels that
in the UK,
a few years back, beat her child to death.
Because he wasn't memorizing the Quran.
There's an article you can Google it.
A judge said the mother Sarah edge, beat her seven year old son yassine repeatedly with a stick over several months calling causing internal injuries. And on the day that he died in 2010. Yeah, I've seen I've been kept home from school to memorize verses of the Koran. And his failure to do so was the trigger for beating him to death, beating him in such a way that it killed him.
In 1994, in LA Rajon and oftentimes if you read the stories of
the people who apostates from Islam, when they're complaining about Islam, and you know,
you commonly hear them speak about the Quran. A good example of that is Yasmin Muhammad, if you google her, she's an ex Muslim, Canadian educator at all the describer human rights activist and author who is critical of Islam.
Yasmin Muhammad has been interviewed by a number of people mentioned and amongst her complaints, she mentions that she was beaten for failing to memorize the Quran, beat it.
This is one of the arguments they used to beat us this way like animals
because we didn't memorize.
Personally I have sat with kharis and her father, Quranic teachers, and discuss this matter with them.
modern teaching methods by use of incentive
But they call positive reinforcement method,
which doesn't involve any hitting. And they invariably, proudly, they would proudly point out that that is how they learned,
as well as the generations before them. And they're fine. We're okay, look, you know, we're teachers and so on. So now, so the principle was, if it works, why fix it?
Or they would ask me for evidence from anywhere in the Muslim world, that this new method works in learning the, bring it?
Well, I didn't have any, any evidence I could bring to show them etc.
So really, and I've encouraged people in a number of occasions, to prepare to make a documentary
on learning the Quran, without a stick,
to help our well intentioned, but misguided madressa teachers and administrators find their way back to the Sunnah.
and protect our millions of children from totally unnecessary physical, mental and emotional abuse. So many of my friends
from Gambia, for example, West Africa, they have the addresses, they're told me, I ran away.
You know, similarly in Sierra Leone and Ghana,
they ran away from the addresses, and it turned them off to the Quran. Also even
you know, or recitation of Quran became a reminder, you know, just flashbacks to the days the students I talked to
friends in the UK, I remember when I'd gone to Birmingham on one occasion,
brothers who were taking me there for lectures, you know, or it was Nottingham sorry, Nottingham.
They were professionals. One was a dentist, and the other one was medical profession. Professional. And they told us yeah, we remember, you know, with the
stars or Gotti sob. You know, he used to put us in the chicken as a pitcher in the chicken. What is that?
Well, you know, you had to stoop crouch down, put your hands under your legs, and
up holding your ears.
We had to stay in that position. So you sort of look like a chicken
I mean, I
still Allah, may Allah protect us. They laughed about it, they could laugh about it. But there are many others who that left serious emotional, psychological damage.
are in that state
and visiting jails across the north of England, you can find the half in almost every one of those jets.
So all this memorization, and
they still ended up going into jail, you know, for horrible crimes
out of the villa.
So we really do need to tackle this
situation globally. It's a shame on Muslims, that we have this in wide practice. But there are countries I mean, like Malaysia, the Maldives, actually that I've visited, you know, other countries where they don't use the stick.
the most majority are India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, you know, Indonesia, Philippines.
You name it.
We've got it. So we really do need
for some brothers and sisters, to put the documentary together on learning to cook without a stick.
What is involved here is understanding the psychology of children.
It's a choice between using the stick or depriving them of what they love or timeouts.
Understanding the various stages that they go through, is critical for raising them, according to the prophetic example.
Positive reinforcement is to reinforce good behavior.
Try to teach them doing as many good things as possible. And praise them for it.
Say something like, I like the way you are being, from the first time that I tell you,
I'm sure you must be doing this because you love a lot connected to the law so much. And he wants him to be pleased with you. And I'm proud of,
obviously, this is not gonna be sent to a three year old who can understand all of that, but to those who can.
You give it to them, according to their level.
And also a lot of physical attention is a reward for good
and makes them want to do more.
If they have a pattern of bad behavior, lying, not sharing, fighting with siblings, not listening for the first time, etc.
We praise the opposite behavior, telling the truth whenever it occurs.
it's important, in addition to positive reinforcement, to set aside a particular deprivation, punishment,
like being grounded,
no toys taken away certain toys, timeouts, cetera.
And we should use it consistently, every time they make the corresponding error.
and implement it without yelling and screaming, just calmly implemented as calmly as you can.
But always remember that we should not use deprivation punishments alone, without positive reinforcement, because eventually it will stop working.
This is the nature of people. So we have to have some of this and some of that positive reinforcement, deprivation, to keep them in line.
And we should be familiar with the early characteristics of children, between especially between the ages of two and six, because this is where personalities are formed.
During that span of time, those five years between two and six.
This is where the child's personalities are formed. What happens to them in this, at this point, sets the future.
So it's important for us to understand that at year two, for example, the child is rebellious. That stage is called commonly in the West anyway, it's called the terrible twos.
And year three, they love to play a lot.
year four, they ask many questions, and they want their questions answered Why? That's the why us why why.
And your five
they love to imitate and to copy, they want to dress like you they want to walk like you, they want to look like you.
And year six, they like to stand out to be different to be noticed.
These are characteristics and this is how Allah has created them and then this way all over the world.
So when each stage comes, we have to let it go by peacefully.
Don't hold on to, you know the good of what was before and what's changed and that and you know, this is how Allah created them, let it pass understand it and let it pass.
So, we should always you know, present this positive model.
And if they hear for example, us talking about them saying he or she is so rebellious, so stubborn, always wants to get their way
and you try to break their neck
And to change it all together,
this will become engraved in his or her subconscious mind. And they will grow up to be rebellious indeed.
So, it's very important for us to know these stages and understand them and not think, you know, that as soon as we see some strange new behavior, the kids are possessed, the jinn have got them, we need to recite Quran over them, you know, we need to do all this and now, this is not a weakness.
This is a natural changes which the children go through,
if we can go on now to the second principle of even batal,
to confirm, were unique and inapplicable.
The ultimate domination belongs only to Allah. That is fact I will call here alcohol is only Allah.
And we apply this reality by recognizing its unique ownership as not belonging to his creatures. We don't think of people in that way, the time of the Jarl, the Zhao will present himself as an pi hero,
he will force himself on people,
because he will appear at a time after three years of drought,
each year getting worse than the one before third year is no rain anywhere on
crops are dried up and and he comes along with mountains of
and offering them to eat and accept Him as God
is forcing himself through
the control he has, which Allah has allowed him to have, you know, over
some of the food elements, etc, causing rain
where there was no rain,
even treasures of the earth coming out at his command.
So, there will be a huge trial coming through this individual, but he is not alpha har
yes, he has something of that is able to force but the believers have to stand for
knowing that ultimately, Allah is in control and he will be defeated
Prophet Isa who will return in time to finish him off before
he dominates the whole world.
So, that is a clear indication that no human being and he will be the most powerful of any before him no human being
will have those kinds of powers.
in our times, we have people in our communities that we call peers and bozhou and share all this who you know, may appear to have powers over the creation and
in the Sufi tradition, you know, the extreme
brands have it they have given these powers to the saints, the Koto they are tired and they have different names for them, you know, who can blow on a seed,
you know and fruit seed and it turns into a diamond or an emerald. They have many stories than being able to do it and maybe possible with the agency of the jinn etc. But we regardless of what we see of those kinds of things, they need to know that
they are not a pie here.
It is a lot.
So we shouldn't allow that to draw us into ship because that's what
behind it all, it's an invitation to share.
Although, likewise, we should hold our governments to account through political solutions, not through violent rebellion, but to
implement the Sharia in our lands, because this is where salvation lies for Muslims,
we should make that effort educate people, make them aware of the benefits of the Sharia. And to make it once again, the law for Muslims.
In terms of the third principle,
where there is hope,
hope, which is we'll springs from promises. Some of the names, like we spoke about a lot of water and far
were a lot being the Forgiving, this is already containing a promise.
But in the case of a car head and kahar Dominator sub duer. It doesn't seem to be a direct promise. But it is
indirect in that Ally's in complete control over creation.
And he can bring even the most powerful nations to its knees, we have seen it by relate with releasing the smallest of creatures against them. COVID-19 an invisible virus.
So the believers should not give up hope in a law, in spite of how the world has turned.
As I said before, we want ruled Spain and much of Europe, India and Africa.
And now we are ruled by them.
The world has turned, things have changed, but it's not permanent.
You know, so
we should have hope. In a bright future. I know a lot of people are talking to me saying, you know, this is the worst that Muslims have ever been, you know, we are at the end now. We're just we're finished. It's just been getting from worse to worse to worse. No, actually, it's not. Things have been getting better.
If we consider the implementation of Islam, in the Muslim oma today, compare it to 100 years ago, when the dominance of
colonialism was in full force,
we've come a long way.
We've come a long way.
So, you know, we just have to look around even over the last 50 years.
So much changes happened.
So we should
realize that in the future, there is
unlimited opportunities for change for improvement, for reviving Islam,
in the oma.
So we should have hope, not lose hope.
The fourth principle
of women batal is to fear where there is a warning
in the Divine Names. There's also a warning of what is to come. If Muslims don't give up cultural Islam and adapt to Islam
are great empires were subdued and overcome. And so will our states and countries today be subjugated once again, if we don't turn back to Allah and revive the divine commandments in our lives, and in our communities, in our regions, and then our lands?
That's the warning on one half. One, from one perspective. From the other perspective.
This this names, iron kahar should motivate us to be kind to the week.
As a lot of said,
family a team of a lotta ha ha
Maasai Illa Allah Tana,
so do not be harsh with the orphans.
And as for the petitioner, do not rebelling.
So we're commanded to be kind, and generous and helpful. To those who are weak.
We are on one hand,
in a position
and they will, in every society be
an element of the society that's weak and in need.
We shouldn't look down on them.
hold out a helping hand
help them get out of their situation.
We should fear that this may happen to us, ourselves, because
what was their situation or their parents or grandparents or whatever situation we have no idea some people just been carrying on for generations. But for some people, it was just their parents were fine and now they're where they are.
Things can change at the last minute,
at any minute.
know that the law has made us all here
in some respects, and others above us are here relative to ourselves. were part of a chain but ultimately our pie here and alcohol is a lot
and we should fear displeasing him and ending up in states of degradation, etc. The people of Syria today people who are Muslim brothers and sisters in Yemen, you know, in Iraq,
Angela dash coming from the rain guys wiggers etc.
Our Muslim brothers are in dire need of help. So we especially in Ramadan should make this effort
to get them out of their state.
They are dominated and subjugated and suffering
Baraka lava people
will complete our session by calling on a law using these names or law. Yeah, haha. Yeah, call here. We know that you can overpower everything
makers of those who sincerely bow to you in Islam and adorn us with the consciousness of you.
Yeah, Paul, here it is to surrender our hearts and our actions to you only Yamaha make us ponder your power, abandon our sins and be kind to the weak and the oppressed. I mean
barakallahu people said I want a comb
over a cat who
will now shift back to our q&a
session segment of our class.
And the first question we have is by kosamba Zubair
asking about the people of Medina, how should we rely on them has to do with the fifth issue?
Well, as I have mentioned previously,
the practice of the people of Medina you know, as lived and recorded by Imam Malik
has a particular place where
we don't have evidence otherwise.
We have the example I think I gave before in Salah
when we sit in the Salah, we make sujood and we sit back
where do we place our hands.
Now you will not find any Hadith. If you go searching through the Hadith, which says the prophet SAW Selim placed his right hand and his left hand on his right and left eyes.
In any particular place,
on the knee, back from the knee, back on the thigh is not mentioned or
off the thighs, just on the ground beside him. There is nothing.
where do we get this practice of just putting it back? If we go back, see the description of the people of Medina, they were the descendants of the Sahaba Saba stayed in Medina and died there. Many, many, many of them leading Sahaba. In fact, Amara hubub, these two people prevent them from leaving Medina
because they needed to be close to the seat of power in order to ensure that the prophetic teachings would be available to handle the issues that would arise as the Islamic
empire of faith expanded out of Arabia.
So, this is where it becomes particularly useful, if we just saying just with go only by that alone. In other words, you may find when we read about the practice that there may be some in Medina, some people who did things which were contrary to the Sunnah.
So we're not going to give precedence to it over what is authentically recorded on the Sunnah. So we have to have a balance, we don't just go all out and say whatever they did, that's it. That's just like the Sunnah of the province also.
Okay, so I read it from Grenada is asking,
Hamza is asking, a non Muslim asked me, if he is a bad person, by going to church,
and believing Jesus is God. He's a bad person in the sight of Allah.
He might be a good person in terms of his dealing with people, but his belief
in God is bad.
belief in God, meaning God as Jesus, the God, the Son,
and God, the Holy Ghost, believing in these as being gods that make up the one God.
This is bad. This is a bad belief. It is satanic. It was taught by Satan to people
because Jesus never taught that.
No, I did Moses, nor did Abraham. Nor did Adam. This was not the message which came to the prophets of God. They brought one message, God is one
without father or son
wasn't born, nor does he give birth. God is one.
So any teaching contrary to that is satanic is from Satan. Satan is the one who doesn't want us to believe in God. He wants us to fall into the state that he fell into.
is reading cartoon comics.
I guess what, animations
etc. Like Romance, Comedy, etc, permissible. reading your readings permissible as long as what's being read is not impermissible.
Bias lm please clarify the difference between lm l kalaam. And l mal mantic. Philosophy and Islamic thought and Islamic ruling on studying such subjects Oh boy. That's a whole class in and of itself.
That's a whole class in and of itself.
Many classical early scholars forbade or discouraged people from studying logic, studying, not logic, but studying philosophy.
You know the philosophy of the Greeks
mainly, as well as philosophy of the Persian Zoroastrians and others
they advised against because of the confusion that it could or would bring.
As people absorb those ideas and try to analyze Islam from those perspectives. It created confusion
To the point where, you know, people started denying aspects of Islam, which
critical for one's true faith.
Whereas studying logic,
you know, if A equals B, and B equals C, then a should equal C.
That's logical thinking.
logical thinking, there's nothing wrong with that. That's not philosophy.
This is just human logic, which was quantified and analyzed by thinkers from Greece. It's no hard
like mathematics, physics, other areas.
soiree? Is it permissible to take any form of medication to stop the flow of menstruation during the last 10 days?
Well, if the medication isn't harmful, it's not known to be, you know, harmful to you as an individual,
then it's permissible.
It's not impermissible. But you know, one has to ask oneself, Allah has made this
menstrual flow natural for me.
Because it's something good for me.
For my body in terms of preparing for pregnancy, and you know, praying the womb and all the different things that come from that cycle.
Hello, I made it that way.
Should I interfere with it?
Simply because I want to catch last minute. And remember
that if you had the intention to catch the last 10 minutes, you will get the reward.
Maybe your reward is better and greater than those people who actually are up
because they're just doing it in with in a ritual style, etc. They don't really even understand what they're doing. They just there and they know, okay, if I catch it, it's 83 years of worship. Ah, yeah, I got it.
And maybe they won't pray for the next 83 years
you know, my advice is that
why put yourself through that?
There is potential harm and whatever medicines that you take unnecessary.
If it's a necessary medicine, and there's potential harm, then you take it because
you need that treatment.
Do we have anything from our students on Instagram?
No, not right now. Okay. carrying on with our students on YouTube Live.
Is it okay to say, Oh my god,
I swear to God, I swear by God.
Oh my god, this is Yeah, Allah.
Is that bad?
Well, ah, now, if you're using well, Allah, he, she, you know, as just a filler in your conversation, you know, as you're speaking you need fillers. Some people use you know, you know, Swanson saw, you know, so and so, you know, you know, you know, it's filling every all the gaps. Some people use, we're lucky, we're lucky. We're lucky. We're like, we're like, we're like,
then it's not good.
You know, you're swearing by a law, you know, and you really don't mean what you're saying.
It's just the emphasis is just like raising your voice to emphasize a point you want to make.
So instead of saying
yes, I want you say, well, like the same thing. That will lie is just Yes.
So like using it like that's not good.
Okay, let's check with our Instagram students. What do we have? Can we still eat or drink till the end of done during Soho?
Can we still eat or drink
We're not talking about food now held in our hand, because we know already then goes, You have food or drink in your hand, you are putting it to your mouth, whatever, that you can finish drinking or eating whatever you add.
you can stop.
If you stop at that point, mean finishing eating doesn't mean you have the plates sitting down there, you just put one. And then you can go keep going like this until you finish it all off. No, doesn't mean that it means that one that you are putting up to your mouth.
You can finish it and stop.
that was specifically mentioned, but the principle is the principal.
Now, if you're asking here, can you continue to eat there? Dan goes.
What that what time do you have to stop is when the alarm first goes, or when they're done and it's when they're done. First goes. So you stop once you're done goes a lot. What Stop, stop there.
Whatever is not in your hand. You leave it stop there.
And begin your fast.
Another question from instagramers.
Students should you spit the water
you accidentally poured in your mouth?
Should you spit the water you accidentally put it in your mouth meaning you had a glass because I'm interpreting this state's questions a little
shaky. You add water in your glass you put water in your mouth
then went drink it.
Then went and you picked up the glass after there then went and put in your mouth and you realize oh, I can do that. Okay, spit it out
from our YouTubers,
not those posting on YouTube, but those who are students on YouTube.
Back up the questions. Okay.
Schiphol Sucre. I want to understand the Quran while reading in Arabic.
While reading and habit is this obligatory,
obligatory if you want to answer if you want to understand the Quran. If you want to understand what the Quran says, You want the Quran to be a book of guidance for you, then it is obligatory. If you don't know Arabic, you need to read the translation along with it.
Can we as Muslims marry from another religion?
I've mentioned this before Muslim males may marry Christian or Jewish females,
Christian or Jewish females. This is permissible
Muslim female can only marry a Muslim male.
Oh, he will ask why is that? This is fear. This is like, you know, misogyny men getting this and women not getting that and this has to do with the nature of family.
Men dominate women.
This is the nature of the family. The man is the head of the family is the one that provides for the family.
The woman is the head of the household. She provides the necessary components of the household for the operation to work.
the woman follows the man. Whatever he wants she complies with, that's the norm.
So if a Muslim man marries a Christian woman
and he asked her
Please don't bring any pork in house.
Is that bad? No. No harm involved here. Okay, as her
I'd like you to cover yourself up.
Instead of exposing your body parts as a Christian you would normally do. I like to cover up so bad. No,
I'd like you not to drink alcohol don't bring any alcohol in house, it's
See all the things that a Muslim man may I ask a Christian woman or Jewish woman to do, or not bad things, the things which don't prevent them from practicing their religion. Now, if we're going to enter into the religion, aspect, the woman is a Catholic, she goes to the, to the cathedral and when they're having their
rites of worship, you know, and the
priest wants to give them a small amount of wine for them to drink, claiming that it becomes this is the blood of Christ, drinking the blood of Christ, this is turned into the blood of Christ.
Well, if you're gonna tell her that when you go to that don't drink. Now you're interfering with their religion. So we say no, you don't have the right to tell her that she has the right to drink there. Outside of that, that's another situation. I don't want you to go into the pubs and I want you to go into the bars, nightclubs drinking up and so on. So that's reasonable. Now switch it around the other way. So she gives that up. She covers herself. You know, she doesn't eat pork.
Now go the other way. The husband's a Christian. The wife is a Muslim. He says,
Go buy me some alcohol or in store and buy me some alcohol. That's haram for her.
He says Ah, I don't like to Oh, cover it up like this. You know, I'd like you to expose your legs and your arms you tight dresses which will show your shape so I can feel proud when I'm walking with you down the street. You know, people will look at us halt man. Look what he has.
Is that okay? Good. No.
No, he's I want some pig. I want some hog. Get me some pork. Get me by me. Cook me. It's okay for no start. Good. Sarah forbidden. So she being a wife is being forced now to do things that will be against her religion. So this is why, you know, Islam insists that if there's any marriage outside of the religion, it should be by the partner who normally is the head of the family. Who can decide what goes takes part in his home in the home? Salah
I want to understand the grind of every day already.
hoogstraten is it Cofer to change my father's name last name that I beer. How bad is it really? Wow, no cats it's over but it's going against the instruction of Allah in the Quran. Allah tells you order only by probably mom is Allah. His son
Zed yBnL hadiza.
He had changed, they changed his name
from they didn't know how to say it even Muhammad because probably Salam loved him so much.
He changed his name.
Actually, he was a slave given to to Prophet unharnessed I'll send them by Khadija.
But he never treated him like a slave. He treated him just like a son. I mean, it was called slave. But you know, it was there in fact, so when the father actually tracked him down, he had been stolen from a Caribbean years before when the father finally tracked him down and found his son said Oh, and he was happy to see his father there. You know, this Okay, son, let's go. He said, No, no, I want to stay with mom.
Wow, what you want to remain as a slave said, Yeah, I prefer that.
So the Prophet said, Sam said, you know, you can go you can go with your father, no problem. You can go with him.
I want to stay with you.
So the process I love, you know, he at that point, boom said, okay, you're my son finish. You are now zaytoven Muhammad and the story
suddenly became known as they did Muhammad. But when he went to Medina and the laws now are being revealed for society, a lot said there are their own by him call them by their father's names, because it's more just in the sight of Allah. So
Amanda Sallam said, change his name, but he said even harder, and the story. So that's the promise on Sunday, he was ready to go and make that correction because the law said that, what about you? Without saying
that you did it? It's wrong. It's incorrect.
Not a major, we say a big sin, major sin, whatever. But it's better.
You know, it's the way of the prophet SAW said, Look, it's what Allah instructed us to do. So
Faisal Ali, is it necessary to wake up the complete night not sleeping, even for 10 minutes? During the last quarter? Some people say it is compulsory, wake up, stay up till fudger How can I respond to them?
What's your proof?
respond by saying what's the proof that you have to stay up all night?
you pray in the night,
for as you prayed in the nights before, it's still the tahajjud you know, they call it pm instead of calling it telawi. And you know, and different supposedly, from tangible it's all one in the same. So you just continue to do what you're doing to just do more. You know, if you were praying for half an hour, what we call tarawih,
which is just tagit. Then pray for an hour. You can pray for an hour and a half. You can pray for two hours, you know, it's up to you what you do, but the sooner was to go to sleep and wake up.
And in the last third of the night, this is when the prayers were done.
question, is it permissible to distance ourselves from relatives who have bad cat character? Yes.
Yes, you can distance yourself from them. They are bad character. I've tried to guide them, but their manners and character hasn't improved. Yeah, you tried your best, you know, after that, then what else is left for you, but to distance yourself?
I know you don't cut ties. So you still see them on different occasions, etc. But, you know, you don't want to be close with them for those bad characteristics, character, you know, trades etc. to rub off on yourself and your family.

Moran vara is warning people against listening to buy in
and monitoring the pain Institute considered backbiting.
Well, you know, to warn people not to listen to them, I mean, this is questionable.
If there are particular issues that are there, who may inform them about these issues doesn't, you know, they hold this position or whatever. So just beware,
no, then no, because at the most we can say these people, if they, some of the people come on or whatever, I know, I've made errors or whatever, you know, this.
Who has not made any areas? If Abu hanifa Imam, Malik,
Mama Shafi, Medina, humble, they all made errors. And they made that point clear, listen, you know, we're human beings, we say what's right, and sometimes we say What's wrong, you know, hold on to what's right from us and what's wrong.
And that was their approach. And that's how we need to take those various institutions and individuals who are trying to educate oma, but they're not perfect. So it will make some mistakes.
And we have to be prepared. If we find what we think to be a mistake, okay? We avoid that. We don't nullify everything that they have to get
From our Instagram students,
how to keep patients when you know, you're when you know, now your prayers can't be accepted. Because it's all gone. What should they do to keep patients?
Well, what does that actually mean?
To keep patients when you know that your prayers have gone? This is kind of vague, very difficult to figure out if you know that okay, the kind of prayers that you were making, were so out of it. You know, they were just purely shell
outward inwardly you weren't praying, but outwardly as he went through the motions and you did everything but inwardly was zero. And it's true people pray you know, and the prophets on Sallam said to a man go back and pray because you didn't pray man went back did this to rock I came back again said go back and pray you didn't pray.
Until you know eventually, after doing it like three times finally the man said, Hey, messenger of Allah, I don't know anything else. This is all I know. God teach me how to pray please. So he taught him. So okay, you know that went that 100 lies that alive, you able to catch it, not that you live the life praying while not really praying, and then you died in that state, etc. So you have time you think Allah is giving you time to correct things and then you try to make all your prayers as best as you can.

Who Who, who allowed this tsunami who made the tsunami etc. This was you know, tectonic plates in the ocean moving and this thing is caused and
this is a laws when laws permitted the laws allowed to take place.
Where's the good enough? Well, yes, there are evil people lost lives and so on. So that's lots of line is something not good. You say in general. But
there were so many people who after that point, I remember reading
You know, article about
the one province area of Indonesia that was hit the worst, they lost the largest number like they said, You know, I said place used to be known for Sharia. We used to implement the Sharia here. Then time came when it became weaker and weaker and weaker. And you know, other things started to spring up and, you know, corruption was coming out openly in the streets. And so the tsunami hit, and everybody went back.
They woke up and came on back onto the dean holding on correcting things making it the way it was, at their best of times. So for them, it was good.
They cause the brought about changing it. And that's the nature of what the lions created, whether good or evil.
